The last 18 months have been nothing short of a whirlwind for Toronto-resident Dustin Nantais. With over 10 EP releases on labels around the world, over 25 original tracks, and 5 compilation singles spanning everything from tech-house, progressive, deep house and nu-disco; to say Dustin's been productive would be an understatement. Pair that with a calendar at venues in both Canada and the UK, you could say things are looking up.
From humble beginnings as a guitarist and bassist in punk and pop rock bands in the 90s, Dustin fell in love with house and progressive in the early 2000s. With early influences like John Acquaviva, Sasha & Digweed, Danny Tenaglia and DJ Vibe, the deep and funky sound was instilled in Dustin from the start. It didn't take long for Dustin to start to appear in some of Toronto's hottest clubs as a DJ, cutting his teeth alongside local legends.
After many years honing his skills, his live performances are quickly becoming a crowd favourite, with a signature, tightly-layered, big and deep sound.
You’ll be hard pressed to find someone as passionate and enthusiastic as Dustin. His positivity is infectious and he’s thankfully transmitting it to the world through his music. It’s in your best interest to stay on top of his funky treats, because Dustin Nantais tunes are the definition of fresh beats.
