Steve not only enjoys playing music at weddings, he can also Officiate them as well as he is an ordained Reverend!
As the co-founder and owner of Inci/Dental Records, Steve (aka V’1LL1N) has always been very passionate about Toronto’s electronic music culture and nightlife since his first Syrous event in 1996. He loved the music so much that he started collecting vinyl and soon after bought turntables in 1999 and began really learning how to mix and scratch. He then grew and started promoting Inci/Dental's first of a series of live events starting in April 2003 called The Jungle Incident; at Club 254, downtown Toronto and had his first residency.
He & his partners quickly developed a following and were hosting events and performing all around southern Ontario with Toronto's top names at the time including DJ Spinz, Trek-E, Mystical Influence, Medicine Muffin & Marcus Visionary to name a few and soon V'1LL1N was playing more and more shows and getting gigs on the same bill as worldwide superstars like Adam F, Fabio, Hype, Shaka Zulu, Dj Flight, Capital J, Freaky Flow, John Otto, Demolition Man, Kenny Ken and Miami legend DJ Bill Kelly!
He also formed Venom Productions in association with Blackmarket Records. Venom hosted DJ Hype in 2004.
Since, V'1LL1N has played a giant spectrum of special events! Varying from gay clubs, all night raves, college nights, pubs, beach parties, birthday parties, club residencies, outdoor festivals and weddings to wine and cheese mixers and full moon medicine gatherings, V'1LL1N thrives on diversity in people as well as music.
Notably one of the only DJ's to bring dance-floor-oriented drum n’ bass every Thursday to Toronto’s gay village at that time! Fast Forward was a special event that brought everyone together between 2006-2008!
At the same time, he has always given opportunities to up and coming performers looking to get some exposure in Toronto’s massive scene by never forgetting he was once there too. The Jungle Incident at 254 was the first club night to offer a regular 'Open Decks' concept that was an opportunity for up and comers each week.
More recently, V'1LL1N's vibes were featured in the 2013 film FACES IN THE MIRROR- directed by Aaron Farrington and produced by Boyd Tinsley of the Dave Matthews Band. V'1LL1N has appeared Live DJ'ing with Boyd Tinsley and his violin in Miami Beach, Florida at the screening of the film and in the debut video for Crystal Garden!
Whether its jump up drum n bass, old school jungle drums, raw hip hop badness, stompy house and techno, soulful r&b hooks, trancy & jazzy breakdowns, pure turntablism madness-or your own wedding requests, you can be rest assured that even if you’ve never heard a certain style before – you’ll walk away having felt how much love, creativity, consciousness & fun goes into his artistry.

V is the numerical equivalent of 22/4 and represents construction. (Great for building.) It is an industrial letter which is tireless and efficient. Negatively, V can be unpredictable. As can those apostrophes'! Watch out for those guys.
