Music is part of his DNA. Serius’s passion for music was apparent from a young age, passed on to him through his father Handy Andy. That passion was solidified by his older brother Don Smooth "The Voice Of The City", and his uncle Dj Tuff "The Living Legend". His father taught him how to use the stereo at the age of two and he grew up falling asleep in music consoles his father built. DJ Serius spent countless hours watching his uncle work at Tuff Studios and listening to his uncles and brothers Mix Tapes. In high school he was a part of the student radio team and was a Dj at school dances and parties.
After years of djing as a hobby doing mostly family functions. He decided, in 2009, that it was time to take music seriously. He went to Vanier College to study Audio Recording Technology and after completion of his schooling he set out as a Dj and audio professional. Not long after that he decided to change his Dj name as it no longer reflected who he was. Up until that point he had gone under the name Dj Krazy D, "it sounded cool in high school, I wanted to be known as the Krazy fun dude and Dan is my first name, so Krazy D seemed to have a nice ring to it." At that time in his mid 20's Krazy D no longer seemed appropriate.
