Originally from Calgary, Ottawa-based Tyrell Henry — better known as DJ Tdot — is an essential part of Ottawa’s club network and radio scene.
DJ Tdot has been mastering turntables since 13 years of age. As the son and Godson of DJs, it’s safe to say that mixing is in his blood. From artists, rappers, and singers, everyone in Henry clan is somehow involved with music: the family business.
While music is everything to Tyrell, he’s also passionate about fashion, which he considers part of an overall lifestyle (“I like to walk the talk”) — that’s why he’s amassed a collection of over 70 hats and 45 pairs of sneakers.
Described as energetic, creative, and fearless, DJ Tdot is committed to making every show different from the last. You won’t hear the same playlists or tunes back to back. He’s known for seamlessly weaving new hits with old school (“songs you used to love but forgot”). Taken on a serious musical journey each time they come to hear him spin, partiers get to hear close to 200 songs in a Tdot set.
An emulator of no one, Tdot does look up to DJ AM, Starting from Scratch, and Clinton Sparks. Nominated for Central DJ of the Year in 2010 for the Marc Echo Stylus DJ Awards, DJ Tdot has hosted events for such superstars as Akon, Fabolous, Fat Joe, Kid Cudi, Pitbull, Lil Jon, Ron Browz, LMFAO, Girlicious, Kevin Rudolph, Mims, Sean Paul, and Kardinal Offishall. His talent has taken him to major events across the globe, including Cancun where he was featured in MuchMusic Spring Break specials in 2009 & 2010.
Despite those globetrotting credentials and playing for over 95,000 listeners daily on Ottawa’s #1 radio station, Hot 89.9, DJ Tdot is still pumped to deliver unforgettable experiences to everyone in an venue setting.
DJ Tdot is all about amplifying his musical expertise & skills as he ascends to the top of an exciting, evolving industry.
“Music is the way I express myself. It’s the way I can create a night for everyone else — I get to control it and people can vibe with it however they want. I am in charge of everyone’s mood for that night.” – Dj Tdot
