(a.k.a. Michael Babb) was born in England, but raised in Canada, and launched his career in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In 1991, he took up his first DJ residency at "Numbers" (later renamed “Divas"). He went on to co-create / co-own a highly regarded nightclub / production company called “Plastic Puppet Motive” (PPM).
Having establishing himself as western Canada's most successful DJ, Deko-ze relocated to Toronto, Ontario in late 1997. Long a leading force in the local scene, both NOW Magazine and Toronto DJ Festival have named him “Best Electronic DJ”. He has been labeled "Canada's Hardest Working DJ"; frequently playing gigs in nearly every Canadian centre — big and small! Building his international profile, Deko-ze has numerous gigs in the USA, UK, Germany, Taiwan and Mexico under his belt. Deko-ze was signed to a multi-year Artist / Producer Development deal with Hi-Bias Records in 2006.
Deko-ze Regards Electronic Music as an Art-Form; a natural extension of his classical training in piano. He believes music should induce a wide range of emotional response, but ultimately programs to create energy and positivity. In a scene now overly segmented, Deko-ze is increasingly distinctive: although categorized as a House DJ, he is recognized for his ability to fuse music of multiple genres (Deep, Funky, and Hard House; Tribal; Progressive; Electro; Tech-Trance; Techno). Deko-ze has an energetic and charismatic stage presence; engaging personality, strong technical skills, and original approach to programming have uniquely cultivated a huge following in throughout the House Scene.
