From a very young age David Ferris, better known as Diggy The Dj, has been a die hard fan of hip hop music and a true lover of all its culture. Inspired by groups, djs and producers such as A Tribe Called Quest, Dj Premier and Dr. Dre, it was clear that he had to be a part of this emerging underground scene and started saving for his first pair of turntables.  After many late nights studying the art of turntablism and building a massive and eclectic collection of records, Diggy The Dj was ready to be heard.  Through compiling  mixtapes, spinning house parties, dances and night clubs, he quickly built a solid fan base and found himself touring the country.  His passion and undeniable talent landed him a residency at System Soundbar's legendary "Superfunk Thursdays", one of Toronto's most sought after gigs.  Music was his entire world and in 2004 he joined forces with neighbourhood friends and like minded musicians who were already writing, producing and performing as the band 'Down With Webster'. After hitting the stage as a group later that year it was clear that the addition of a dj was a unique and valuable asset.  He has toured internationally as a full time member of the band, gaining notoriety, receiving numerous Juno nominations and earning two Much Music video awards. Diggy continues to tour as part of the DWW phenomenon, while also establishing himself as one of Canada's premier dj's.  You can find him behind the decks shutting down venues from coast to coast. Come wile out to one of his raw, rowdy and extremely versatile sets.
