Kevin ‘Eclectik’ Mowbray started collecting music as a kid in the 1980’s and hasn’t stopped. His music knowledge is deep and his taste diverse so when he got his first set of Turntables in 1997 it wasn’t long before he was booking gigs in Vancouver’s biggest nightclubs and featured on both MTV Canada and CityTV Vancouver.
After a decade of refining his skills on the decks he started to enter dj competitions, including Vancouver’s 2009 Megablend DJ Battle, in which he emerged champion out of 40 contestants. That put him on the radar for Red Bull Thre3style, the world’s largest DJ Competition, for which he has now twice been chosen as a regional finalist (2010 and 2013).
Currently Eclectik drops sets both in Vancouver and around the world – including several parties with thousands in attendance at venues like Vietnam’s famous Sailing Club, Nha Trang. A strong enthusiasm for Asia has Eclectik playing there on the regular. When he is back at home in Vancouver he enjoys making mixtapes, spinning weddings for friends, and rocking both charity and corporate gigs, as well as dropping sets at cool venues in town like Fortune Sound Club, London Pub, and the Bayside Lounge.
His recent corporate clients include the City of Vancouver, Old Navy, White Spot, George Stroumboulopoulos and Scotiabank. He has shared the stage with members of Jurassic 5 and Major Lazer – but what really sets him apart from the rest is his interesting day job as an Optometrist – as City TV’s Jay Brown put it: ‘When the sun goes down, Dr. Kevin Mowbray becomes the Doctor of Sick Beats!’
