DJ Laz Vagez was introduced to DJ'n by his God brother Raymond McIntosh, who was a DJ on 89.5 CIUT at the time. Going to his house was like a field trip being able to experiment on the two Technics 1200 and the slew of records he had being with Universal Canada's marketing division. At the early age of 12 was where Vagez would begin to develop the skill of mixing two records at the same time. At 15, he and a couple of friends started Mischef Sound Crew, a primarily urban music sound system focusing on Dancehall/Reggae and Hip-Hop. They had minor success in the local high school scene and disbanded but being involved with music made his knack for DJing a line he would eventually cross.
