Trevor Mason (AKA DJ Mace) was born in Toronto and moved to Kingston at a young age. By the age of 12, he and a close friend started taking up the art of DJing and by the age of 15, inspired by the music scene that he grew up with in Toronto, DJ Mace brought that fresh new movement to major establishments in Kingston.
He was influenced by his older cousins who were DJs in Toronto and Queens NY, as well as his father who was a musician and key member of Grenada’s and Toronto’s Caribbean music scene.
DJ Mace moved to Ottawa in the early ‘90s to attend Algonquin College.
He first inched his way onto the music scene with the grass-roots approach of creating and selling his mixtapes, which stirred such a buzz that he caught the attention of other local DJs, night club owners and promoters, soon after he joined forces with David Mason (D-Train), Caanan Lauzon (DJ Kane) and Richard Dixon (MC Richniques) to form the legendary Ebony & Ivory Soundcrew.
Ebony & Ivory began putting on large-scale events, playing at local nightclubs and travelling across the country, drawing thousands of people at a time.
From the very beginning of his career, DJ Mace knew the importance of Marketing and Promotions, which he continues to excel at.
