Known for their Cutting Edge selection of Crunchy, Driving, Peak-Time, Party Rocking Breaks, the boys will deliver complete annihilation!!


GUMBOOTZ..... Born in Toronto, Cale "Gumbootz" Robichaud, moved to the west coast at the young age of 11. Growing up, he had a major love for music, and knew that one day he would be on a stage rocking out! But it wasn’t until a friend picked up a couple turntables that he realized his true calling; to rock the masses as a DJ.

Over a decade has passed and Gumbootz has since built up a reputation as a hard hitting DJ, opening for world class talent such as The Freestylers, The Breakfasters, Donald Glaude, Bryx, Myagi, Smalltown Dj's and Wood & Soo. He has also hosted a weekly internet radio show on "" and held a weekly residency at Karma Nightclub.

Gumbootz made heads explode at the infamous 'Soundwave' music festival, the 'Victoria Electronic Music Festival (VEMF)', Jump Ship, and countless other raves and parties up and down Vancouver Island. Gumbootz has a lot of experience under his belt and what we've seen so far is only the beginning!

Recently Gumbootz has gotten into the music production side of things along side good friend Dj Generic, who has been teaching Gumbootz the ins and outs of music production. Gumbootz has been working hard to be able to take this into his live sets as well, to create a fusion of DJ set and live PA by linking Ableton, Traktor Scratch and NI's Maschine.

Gumbootz' energy, charisma, and ability to rock the crowd, makes even the most stubborn of party goers hit the dance floor. DJ Gumbootz is definitely not one to miss.
