    Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches. Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!

    DJ NaNa believes that the art of Turntablism is a science. The same precision and dedication scientists put into research and experiments, is what NaNa is known for putting into his own artform. His influences range from the common (Wu Tang Clan, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z). to the not so obvious (Zamfir, Portishead, Lamb, Fleetwood Mac), and everything else in between. A true music connoisseur, his knowledge of diverse genres of music is almost as impressive as his knack for combining them.
