DJ Joyryde – Hailing from Windsor, Ontario overlooking the Detroit skyline was born and raised in Goa, India. He was brought up in the Goa Trance/Psy trance scene when it had just started.

He is famous for his weekly underground radio shows on Pirate Radio and various channels on Sh0utcast, and his weekly podcast on iTunes and MyPodcast. He is known for not fitting the norm and getting away from it and settling down with underground minimal techno which is extremely Detroit influenced.

His engineering skills can be seen in his djing and producing.
