The year…1999. Underground Electronic Music was spreading like the T-Virus through out Saskatoon, SK, & standing smack dab in the middle were two young party goers looking for something more. Garret Friesen, now known as J.A.DJ was furiously getting into the raw sounds of techno & industrial, when he met Adam Bradley a.k.a DJ digaBoo & his love for the UK sounds of the hard house & dance. This wou
ld pave the way for one of the most technical & entertaining duo’s to ever step foot in a DJ booth! Signing in 2000 with DJ Sugar Daddy & Playhouse Records J.A.DJ & Boo joined forces to create what is now known as the wildly popular TrueSpin DJ’s! Together they began to play all major Saskatoon massive events, club nights, & would go on to tour Western Canada, & bring TrueSpin to new heights.
2002 saw digaBoo & J.A.DJ take new city paths in their careers, but never loosing the TrueSpin bond & always finding a way to rock out together. digaBoo now in Vancouver, was beginning to find a new flavor to his music, adding house, funky breaks, & drum n bass to his arsenal, & in only 3 short months found himself with a new residency at Club Tribeca & making the west coast party scene his playground. Boo then moved to Calgary in 2005 to sign with Dom G & Fehrenheit Promotions / Warehouse Nightclub, opening for endless amounts of world renown DJ’s & for the next 5 years Boo would build a name for himself as one of hardest working & most entertaining DJ’s Calgary had ever seen.
2002 was abit different for J.A.DJ & found him on the ground floor of a struggling Saskatoon scene that was begging for someone to take charge… & take charge he did! The outcome was Good Life Promotions, & rebirth of the Saskatoon Electronic Music Scene. For the next 8 years to follow J.A.DJ & Good Life would set a gold standard with events such as “The Blue Party Trilogy” & their yearly “Good Life Massive” that wrote the book on “How to Throw a Party”! & Not only bringing Saskatoon, but putting Saskatchewan back to the four fronts as one of the top places in Canada to party.
Now 2011 & TrueSpin has shifted gears once again. Finding J.A.DJ now taking hold of the Vancouver scene, pursuing his music career & majoring in sound design, while digaBoo is continuously making waves in Calgary, keeping hard at work on new tunes, as you will find him at all the major clubs & parties throughout the city. The future holds big things for the duo, with the release of The Truspin DJ’s EP early this year & you will of course find them coming home to SK, to join forces at Canada’s longest running annual electronic music festival “Connect” & other major events throughout the year!
