It’s not about where you’re from, or who you’ve been – it’s about where you’re going, and Deep Tech duo Hyland & Kavai know just where to take you when they get behind the decks and take control of a dim, hungry room with a signature sound that is deep dark, sexy, and relentless all rolled into one finely curated techno package.
Lost in the dark, digging deep into a movement that will leave you wanting more is where you’ll find yourself in Hyland & Kavai’s hand.
Starting off young and DJing together since 2011, still in their early twenties, the Niagara natives Jay Hyland and Peter Kavai have a knack for providing gritty, funky baselines that will make heads bop uncontrollably, and bodies move accordingly on any dance floor.
Because of this, Hyland & Kavai have become favorites in Toronto underground scene, with a crowd who always knows just what kind of dirty groove they’re in for with this duo. Holding downcast residencies at the legendary Guvernment nightclub in Acid Lounge, as well as Cache and Terrace 44 have kept these two busy over the years, as well as playing Toronto underground staples like formerly beloved Footwork, Coda, Nest, and Toika Lounge, and the notorious after-hours Comfort Zone.
Hyland & Kavai have been around to watch Toronto’s dance music scene expand into something fierce and heavy, and have no doubt been part of its rapid growth, playing alongside international names like Martin Buttrich, tiNi, Carlo Lio, Matt Sassari, Reelow, The Junkies, Victor Calderone, and never failing to deliver the dance floor to their desired destination.
