Dabbling in DJ’ing since childhood, DJ Ducats has without a doubt carved a solid name for himself in the Ottawa hip-hop scene. Best known for his unique style and successful radio show, Peaceful Journey, some say Ducats is the gold standard for DJs here in Ottawa. With one of the biggest vinyl collections in the city, you’ll be sure to enjoy his mix of old school beats and new school flavour.

Getting his first set of decks in ’91, Ducats has always had a passion for hip-hop. With one of his main goals always being to please the crowd, he has a very distinctive way of blending together those old gems with today’s up-and-comers. He has worked with many well-established artists, producers and DJs such as Pharcyde, Kardinal Offishall, Boot Camp Clik, Roc Raida, Tha Alkaholiks and DJ Illo, to name a few.
