Stepping onto the Calgary scene as one half of the duo the Algorhythms, Tyler (Obscene) Duhaime first made his appearance as a member of the renown Rudebwoy Rendezvous collective. Immediately recognized for his charismatic personality, seamless mixes and intelligent track selection, people were consistently being thrown into a frenzy once he stepped behind the decks. Having a penchant for the latest, greatest, and most jaw dropping bass lines being put out, along with a flavor that was recognizable from outside on the street, Tyler quickly became a fan favorite in the 403 DNB scene. For this reason, it is appropriate that the founding father and creative director of the 403DNB collective. Having played in the city for more than a decade, he has seen the genre through its rise and fall, and has been a major part of its revival in popularity in recent years.Not the type to splinter Drum and Bass into sub genres, (but he can, so don't get him started) Tyler loves and plays it all, making him an ideal candidate to rock any dancefloor he is placed in front of.
