On Deck with Toronto’s DJ t-jr
This week’s episode of On Deck comes to us from Toronto’s own, DJ t-jr. (pronounced “tee-junior”). t-jr.’s passion for music and dedication to the true art of DJing, scratching and turntablism have helped to establish her as one of the most reputable female DJs in the city of Toronto. She competed in both the 2016 and 2017 Canadian DMC East Coast Scratch Battles, and is currently the only female competitor at the DMC Canada DJ Battle Competition.
t-jr.’s first love is hip hop, both old and new, but she has a wide-range of musical knowledge, crossing various genres including R&B, reggae & dancehall, afrobeats, pop & top 40, deep house, latin, funk and classic rock. Back in January, she had the opportunity to showcase her technical skillset alongside three of Canada’s top DJs, including Skratch Bastid, Hedspin and Trapment. t-jr. can be found rocking venues around Toronto such as e11even, MOXIES and La Porte Resto and Bar.
