His track record has catapulted his award-winning company Pez Productions into a go-to favourite for events and recognized as one of the most prestigious DJ companies in Calgary. Having realized a passion for music at an early age, Fayyaz’s interest in DJing came from listening to Chris Sheppard’s Pirate Radio. Inspired by local talents Troy Allen and DJ Gemini, as well as global moguls Tiesto and Paul Van Dyk, Fayyaz worked his way into the industry from the bottom, investing time to learn the ropes. Originally named DJ Pez, Fayyaz got his first big break on New Year’s Eve 2001, playing for a sold-out crowd of 8,000 people at the Hyatt’s Black and White NYE Gala, and upcoming radio station Vibe 98.5 took notice. Since then, Fayyaz has shared the stage alongside hot acts such as Nelly, Shawn Desman, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Jermaine Dupri, 112, Jagged Edge, Da Brat, Noreaga, Eve, Lil’ Flip, Keshia Chante, City High, and Soul Decision.

The following year allowed Fayyaz more opening spots for global DJ acts such as Tydi, Ronski Speed, Jochen Miller, Alex Kidd and The Noise Controllers, and powerhouse acts like Dash Berlin, Judge Jules, Stoneface and Terminal, Scot Project, and Sander van Doorn. In the years following, he continued to open for respected artists, adding Shogun, Starkillers and world-famous vocalist Nadia Ali to his repertoire.
