Biography

THE BILZ vision in production is to always create sounds that are one step ahead of the industry to maintain club and commercial record successes. The Duo consists of DJ VICIOUS and MASTER-D (a.k.a Subir Dev). They are two individuals who have gained a vast knowledge of the music industry in two different dimensions. Master D’s aspect comes from his knowledge of over 10 years of training in Indian classical music, ethnic variety and the fusion of urban music that gives an edge in the creation of an original composition without sampling in production. Through his production years, Master D’s creative composition featured in an independent feature film, entitled Passage to Ottawa which was produced and directed by Canadian film maker Gaurav Seth. This movie won 4 international awards since its release in early 2002. Furthermore, this inspired him to compose sound scores with world music influence.

DJ Vicious’ broad notion of how to handle both, the Mainstream and South Asian music industry with his immense list of industry contacts of both worlds, has given him recognition as DesiClub.com TOP 50 “DESI” (Indians), who have made a difference in North America. He shares rankings with Raj Bakhtra from NBC’s “The Apprentice” & M. Knight Shamalayan (Director of The 6 th Sense). DJ Vicious and Master D put Montreal Canada on the map after releasing their underground south Asian mixtapes series (Insomnia 1, 2 & 3) having unit sales of 800, 1200 & 7000 units respectively across Canada and 1000+ bootlegs across U.S independently!
DJ Vicious’ aspect comes from his knowledge of the urban music industry for over 8 years, from Deejaying and music promotions. He started off touring across North America promoting his mixtapes in various parts of Canada, U.S.A and recently his emergence in the U.K with “THE BILZ” imprint. He opened for MTV’s Funkmaster Flex in Detroit, Jin the MC from Ruff Ryders, Punjabi MC in Chicago, Apache Indian in Toronto and Sean Paul’s After Party in Montreal.

After gaining immense street buzz, the duo got selected to officially remixed BMG Recording Artist, Keshia Chanté ft. Foxy Brown smash single "DOES HE LOVE ME", which had been pressed and distributed to DJS across North America in addition, gaining medium rotation on radio stations in Canada and on BBC 1xtra in U.K. Their achievement lead to live radio interviews on Adil Ray's, Rishi Rich's Kiss100 FM & Punjabi Hit Squad's Radio stations on BBC 1xtra, furthermore, a two page spread article as “Canada’s Next Big Sound” in Cineblitz International Magazine.

THE BILZ’ movement does not stop there. They were the first south Asian production team to release a party break on AV8 Records entitled “GET CONVERTED” which sold over 2000 units across North America and Europe making them raise the bar and giving recognition to Montreal. They then expanded working with artists across North America, Europe and Asia which landed them to officially remix a full length album of various production genres (urban, pop/dance and south Asian) of Canadian/European artist, Chantal Chamandy from Ninemuse Music which reached no.19 on U.S Top 100 Billboard Dance charts and their Reggaeton remix charting no.7 on Latin R&R. In addition, they provided assistant production for McDonald’s Canadian TV commercial which gained rotation all across Quebec, Canada. Furthermore, THE BILZ also remixed two exclusive tracks for female Bhangra artists Malika & Joyti who have recently been awarded “best new comer artists” & “best new album” by ZeeTV. DJ Vicious stays connected with street releases with his exclusive mixtape “IMPERIAL pt.1 and pt.2” which featured artists like Kardinal Offishall, Jin, Sean Paul, from TVT Records Pitbull, Wayne Wonder, Fatmanscoop, Frank & Dank, Juggy D, Jay Sean, Elephant Man and Keiaun the GoldnChild from Dreamcatchers Entertainment. The Imperial series gets distributed all across Canada, U.K and U.S.A especially over the internet.

The BILZ are now ready to showcase it worldwide with their self titled album released by Major recording label, Times Music(INDIA), ENVY Entertainment (U.K), Arviva Music (U.A.E) & HMV across Canada
