Borzoo spends most of his time, being the music curator, owner and resident DJ of Cabal, Toronto’s intimate electronic music haven. Trained in classical music as a child, Borzoo’s DJing break didn’t come until his university days in Dubai in early 2000s where he was working as a photojournalist for a nightlife magazine which gave him the opportunities to be part of Dubai’s booming scene at the time where half dozen heavy weight DJs were flying into Dubai on a weekly basis. He then started his own club night at Dubai’s only truly underground club at the time, iBO which quickly led to him getting picked up by city’s top promoters to do warm up slots for the international headliners in parties such as Renaissance and Shindig, playing major clubs in the region. An architect by trade, he continued DJing and making music on the side after moving to Toronto in 2008, but things really kicked in gear after 2012 when he started Cabal in Toronto, an intimate club which has already gained a lot of respect for its avant-garde bookings, and great intimate vibe. Despite running a club and gigging in other clubs and festivals, Borzoo has managed to clock some time in the studio and has a few originals and remixes due to be released in the upcoming months on some very respectable labels, and he’s just getting started.
