DJ Mace is undoubtedly one of Ottawa’s most familiar DJ’s. His popularity stems from his ability to transcend markets, his extensive creativity, knowledge and love of music.

The vibe and energy at a DJ Mace party is second to none, you can feel the intensity and passion he has for music as he switches from song to song. R&B, HIP HOP, OLD SCHOOL, RARE GROOVES, HOUSE, REGGAE, SOCA/CALYPSO and more…DJ Mace plays it all!

In the 90’s Trevor Mason (DJ Mace) 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 night clubs and travelling across the country, drawing thousands of people at a time.

Trevor Mason (DJ Mace) is one of the most sought after entertainment personalities in Ottawa and is the go-to man for many of the industry’s top business leaders and brands. Nordstrom, H&M, Ted Baker, Adidas, Armani and Porter Airlines are just a few of the names that have leveraged his musical expertise for their product launches and special events.

Mace has been credited for playing alongside artists such as DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Premiere, Starting From Scratch, DJ Enuff, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Digable Planets, Biz Markie, Tony Touch, Kid Capri, De La Soul, Red Alert, Beenie Man, Sean Paul, Snoop Dogg, Choclair, Karl Wolf, Kardinal Offishall, Saukrates, 2 Live Crew, Vince Carter, Tommy Davidson, Jully Black, Bell Biv Devoe, Crystal Waters, Zhane, Cameo, Maestro Fresh Wes, RL, Dru, Russell Peters, Sanchez, Walshy Fire, Kerwin Du Bois, Lil Rick, Edwin Yearwood, and many other international and local entertainers.
