From the frozen tundra that is Toronto, Canada, DJ Mensa single-handedly keeps the streets hot. In a city where the biggest acts are humbled by unforgiving T-Dot audiences, Mensa brings nothing but his A-Game on every occasion. From the smallest of lounges to thousands in attendance, Mensa has brought parties to life across Canada, the US, and his native Philippines. Smooth mixing paired with a turntablist's sensibility make his sound hard to duplicate, and is quickly earning himself the title as the peoples' favorite.
At every party, Mensa makes it a personal affair, creating on-the-spot mixes tailored to the vibe of every occasion. Mensa has found himself in nearly every venue across the city, and has opened for such acclaimed recording artists as
DJ Neil Armstrong
?uestlove (of the Roots)
Q-Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest)
Boot Camp Clik (Black Moon, Heltah Skeltah, Smif-N-Wessun)
Maestro Fresh Wes
and many more.
Having already made guest appearances on MuchVibe, Rap City, MTV Canada & Asia and CBC, the word has spread about DJ Mensa. His Coolout brand mixes have gained notoriety both locally and overseas. His radio show on the Project Bounce Radio Network was rated number one in his timeslot two years running, and a slew of side projects and shows will have him occupied indefinitely.
But what is most important to Mensa is keeping the vibe. From the warm-up to cooldown, and everything in between, Mensa is always fully in the know.
