WHO WE ARE
(Co-Host / Deejay)
DJ Hunt’s obsession with music started at an early age. The classically-trained pianist started banging on keys while he was still in diapers, and his passion for music and technology naturally evolved into deejaying and music production.
Hunt’s been rocking clubs and parties for over 10 years and advanced effortlessly from vinyl records to Serato without jeopardizing his skills or creativity. As a DJ, he’s well known for his versatility and easily adapts to any party while seamlessly blending music of all genres and decades. Whether he’s mixing it up with hiphop, R&B, electro, house, funk, disco, reggae or classic rock, Hunt consistently surprises crowds with an old favorite they don’t expect to hear or introduces them to the latest music trends before they become trends.
With a diploma in Recording Arts from the Art Institute in Vancouver, Hunt is also an accomplished music producer & recording engineer; his original remixes are played in clubs and on radio across the world and he’s worked with many of Canada’s most respected hiphop artists. After working for several years at one of Vancouver’s premier recording facilities, Hipposonic Studios, Hunt is now based at Airwaves Sound which houses his own recording studio and production outlet.
In 2007, Hunt assumed the role of Executive Producer for Vancouver’s only hiphop television show, Pass Da Mic. Over the course of the show’s final two seasons on-air, he managed the entire operation and hosted on-camera interviews with many acclaimed members of the music industry including N*E*R*D, Lil Jon, Mims and more.
Hunt is also the creator of hunt.FM an online mixshow dedicated to promoting newly released hiphop and R&B music.
In strict contrast to today’s mainstream radio, Hunt assembles regular ‘New Music Mixes’ that have never contained the same song twice – an ambitious feat that is unmatched by any other popular music mixshow.
Together with co-host Jenno Chand, they have produced over 100 episodes to date that have featured highly recognized guest deejays and artists from around the world including DJ Wristpect, Carl Henry, Jeremih, DJ Baby Yu, Vanguards, Famous, Jay Swing & Flipout, DJ Big Syphe, DJ Psar, Red 1, GMAN&RIZK and many more.
Upon graduating from high school in 1999, Jenno decided to pursue a career in music production and radio. After applying four times (yes, four times!) to the British Columbia Institute of Technology’s Radio Broadcasting program, she finally got accepted!
With a diploma in Radio Broadcasting, Jenno’s career has branched into three different paths: Promotions/Marketing, Music Production & Radio Podcasting. Aside from her duties at hunt.FM, she is working hard on the club/concert company, GoGettersEnt, that she has started with her younger sister Coco, while also producing music and building her own recording studio!
