A card carrying member of the height community, DJ Arrogahnz has been spinning European inspired beats from his Victoria studio while holding down residency at Vancouver's Post Modern nightclub for the past number of years.
With each passing month a new set list is compiled and circulated and are a staple at any Team Provident workout / function / gathering. You too can have the soothing sounds of G$ pass through your ear buds simply by joining the revolution.
It was while studying at the University of Western Ontario where DJ Arrogahnz realized that sicky beats, when combined with other sicky beats, make sicky trahks. A realization that has benefited the masses.
