“It's a magic zoo that we call home. Even after traveling the whole world, Comfort Zone is still untouchable for me. This place moulded who we are today as people and DJs." - Carlo Lio (Elrow/Saved/Rawthentic)
“My first experiences were from playing there. In nearly all my life, my first experiences were from DJing before I thought to go there as a party goer.” - Nathan Barato (Hot Creations/Repopulate Mars/Rawthentic)
“I played Comfort Zone every single Sunday from 2001-2008. It was the place I learned how to be the most authentic DJ as an underground artist. New Years Day every year was like no other place I’ve played...still to this day…and I’ve played all over the world.” - Sydney Blu (Knee Deep In Sound/Desert Hearts/Katermuuke)
“Having played all over the world, the vibe at The Comfort Zone is truly a unique experience. Since opening, it's become a clubbing institution and an intricate part of the musical education for many in Toronto. Simply put, there's no place like Zone." - Jerome Robins (Toolroom/Stereo/Kittball)
Since it’s inception, The Comfort Zone represents the organic dance music experience. The venue, the family that attends, the selectors that play. Once a Zoner, always a Zoner." - Flipside (Toolroom/This Ain’t Bristol/Proper Beats)
"What I really appreciate about the Zone is that it’s kind of a weird timeless capsule, where you can have the gay community, the Asian community, the university kids, a whole bunch of ravers and everyone in between. They’re all going off, dancing in unison, having a good time, and there’s no judgment." - Deko-ze (Hotfingers/Vamos/Jungle Funk)
