Born in Prague, Czech Republic, Hashek came to Canada when he was 9 years old. Having already been exposed to DJing at a very young age, Hashek got his first gig in Ottawa back in 1997 and since then, he has played at countless venues and shows across Canada and the U.S. over the past 15 years. He has been fortunate to play along some great names in the techno industry, such as DJ Preach, Misstress Barbara, Manule Malin, Gaetano Parisio, and many others.
Hashek continues to evolve musically as he plays various styles of electronica: ranging from house, techno, psytrance, progressive and even ambient chill. A solid performer, Hashek is considered to be one most technically proficient DJs in Ottawa, having won the 2011 "So You Think You Can DJ" competition for Framework Music at BPM Afterhours, where he currently holds a quarterly residency. He is also the brains behind Alweezgrooven, an annual free gathering in nature which has become an escape for many like-minded people who follow their hearts and dreams into music land.
