Biography


Irresistibly drawn to music, DJ Uppercut began his career behind the turntables with sets at Montreal clubs when he was no more than seventeen. The newcomer wasted little time leaving his mark on the city’s finest spots, imposing an original and distinctive house sound from the word go. He quickly climbed the ladder with his characteristic energy, and at the start of the 2000s took up residence at Complexe Millenium while appearing at Montreal’s best-known house clubs, at the same time carving out a place for himself at the celebrated after-hours Red Lite in Laval, where he continues to be a headliner.

Recognized for the punch packed by his captivating rhythms, Uppercut has been invited to be part of a number of large-scale events, including Bal en Blanc at Palais des congrès, Resolution at the Bell Centre and Sensation 2008 in Quebec City. And it didn’t take long for his reputation to cross our borders, his services being called on in the Dominical Republic, Colombia, the Turks and Caicos Islands and in Mexico, where his appearances have included the BPM Festival in Playa Del Carmen.

Also a producer, Uppercut has been responsible for tracks like “Welcome to Hell” on Dance Planet Records. In the spring of 2008, the honor of producing volume 5 of Red Lite official CDs – the Red Lite Series – was awarded to him and his fellow Montreal DJ Jester.

Over the last few years, Uppercut has continued his dazzling progression, contributing to the KULT Records remix series of “Gotta Be Me” by Steve “Bear” Sas, in the company of such illustrious names as John Creamer, Stephane K, Dave Vasquez, Danny Buddah Morales and Silva. His “Uppercut Bounce Mix” from the Omar “Cito” Pérez song “Sueño Mío” has also been strongly supported by DJs such as Peter Rauhofer, Peter Presta, Peter Bailey, DJ Vibe, Eddie Cumana and Roger Sanchez.

In demand everywhere, Uppercut continues to conquer the crowds with each of his appearances at Red Lite, at the private club Karma and at La Folie, not to mention a recent set opening for Roger Sanchez at Terrasses Bonsecours. Summer 2010 looks to be a hot one for the Montreal DJ, whose gigs will include one alongside Tiësto as part of a special event presented at Beach Club de Pointe-Calumet in mid-July.

Uppercut has teamed up with names like: Markus Schulz, Roger Sanchez, Eddie Cumana, Robbie Rivera, Craig Pettigrew, Blank + Jones, The Cube Guys, Anna Paula, Above & Beyond, Sydney Blu, Menno De Jong, Cosmic Gate, David Guetta, Hed Kandi, Kyau & Albert, Rank-1, Offer Nissim, Max Graham, Tiesto & Sébastien Léger.

Francais:

Irrésistiblement attiré par la musique, DJ Uppercut a débuté sa carrière derrière les platines en se produisant dans les clubs montréalais dès l’âge de 17 ans. Le nouveau venu n’a pas tardé à faire sa marque dans les meilleurs endroits de la métropole, imposant d’entrée de jeu un son house original et distinctif. Gravissant rapidement les échelons avec son énergie caractéristique, il devient trois ans plus tard membre du réputé pool professionnel Record DJ network. Au début des années 2000, il décroche une résidence au Complexe Millennium et se produit dans les clubs house les plus réputés de Montréal, en plus de faire sa place au célèbre after-hours Red Lite de Laval dont il est encore aujourd’hui l’une des têtes d’affiches.

Reconnu pour la force de frappe de ses rythmes irrésistibles, Uppercut est invité à participer à de nombreux événements de grande envergure dont le Bal en Blanc au Palais des congrès, Resolution au Centre Bell et Sensation 2008 à Québec. Sa réputation ne tarde pas à franchir nos frontières alors qu’on réclame aussi ses services en République Dominicaine, en Colombie, aux îles Turquoises et au Mexique où il se produit notamment au festival BPM de Playa Del Carmen.

Également producteur, Uppercut a aussi signé des titres tels que ” Welcome to hell ” sur Dance Plant Records. Au printemps 2008, c’est à lui et à son confrère Jester que revient l’honneur de réaliser le volume 5 des CD officiels du club Red Lite intitulés Red Lite Series 5.

Au cours de dernières années, Uppercut a poursuivi sa progression fulgurante, contribuant notamment à la série de remixes de la pièce ” Gotta Be Me ” du DJ/producteur Steve Bear Sas, un projet du label KULT Records auquel ont collaboré des noms aussi illustres que John Creamer, Stephane K, Dave Vasquez, Danny Buddah Morales et Silva. Son ” Dj Uppercut Bounce Remix ” de la chanson ” Sueno Mio ” d’Omar Cito Perez a aussi été joué à satiété par des DJ tels Peter Rauhofer, Peter Presta, Peter Bailey, DJ Vibe, Eddie Cumana et Roger Sanchez.
