Biography


Recognized for his overflowing energy, his authenticity, his innate taste for “audio luxury” and his tireless will to distribute quality beats to party people everywhere, Pascal B is one of the most promising talents to step into the DJ arena in Montreal these last 3 years. Cutting edge DJ, music extremist, and a complete adrenaline junkie behind the decks, Pascal B’s unique style of deep progressive house & techno, woven together by beautiful and haunting melodies, will take you far into the underground and bring you back with musical memories.

Born in Montreal on April 25, 1976, Pascal’s love of electronic music exploded with the Montreal electronic scene. Initially, his passion for dancing drove him weekly to the Montreal dance floors, where he experienced the best that Montreal had to offer: the skills of innovative local DJs to the mind-blowing genius of some of the world’s greatest DJ/producers. Twenty years of musical observation, participation and general addiction have given Pascal B a keen sense of style and a refined ear for the mix.

At the age of 27, Pascal B set his hand on a mixer for the first time and what already occupied the major part of his free time became a full-time obsession. From that time Pascal B developed a style that combines the deepest and sexiest progressive house and techno beats with stirring melodies, vocals and effects. You will often hear Pascal B say, “ I especially love it when it’s melodious! ” And indeed his beats will excite your body and his melodies will illuminate your mind.

In 2011-2012, he followed a complete program of “Audio production techniques” at Musitechnic School in Montreal. This program is given in three semesters over a period of 12 months. It prepares for audio work in the fields of music and audiovisual. Musitechnic has built a world-class international reputation by making important financial investments on all its facilities and by recruiting best music industry professionals as teachers. The graduate is able to work as a sound technician, better known under the terminology of a Sound engineer or Audio Engineer. During the same year, after he did his first gig in the club, he got accepted as a resident DJ in one of the most renowned afterhours club in North America : Stereo Night Club (Montreal).

Pascal B draws inspiration from such producers as John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo, Guy J, Deepfunk, Cid Inc. Marcelo Vasami and Silinder and to create his distinctive style.
