Just one fight, and just one anniversary
So I never thought you'd be the one to up and leave
You said all that was written in the stars
But I never paid attention to my charts

And now I see how quick you must want to forget
Cuz you left the ring I bought you with your cigarettes
Well I can finish up if you don't want them
And I can take the ring back where I got it from

I can love it or I can leave it
You said "who need ya, Best believin'
Cuz you're a novice and I'm a taurus 
And I'm not gonna say, I'm not gonna do"

Yeah I can love it, I can leave it
You said "who need ya, best believin'"
Cuz you're a taurus, and I'm aquarius
And I'm not gonna say, I'm not gonna do

Never thought about it sentimentally
Never saw just how much you thought I meant to me
Never learned about it at university
Never thought about it because you're the first to see

And I'm aware of the procedure
But normally it's me that leaves her
I guess i'm finished up, it's time to move on
I'm taking the ring back to where I got it from

I can love it or I can leave it
You said "who need ya, best believin
Cuz you're a novice, and I'm a taurus 
And I'm not gonna say, I'm not gonna do"

I can love it or I can leave it
You said "who need ya, best believin'
Cuz you're a novice, and I'm a taurus 
And we've had problems when we're notorious for them"

It's what your friends said
Now you're on side with them
I've seen a thousand of theirs
Not a thinner line than this

Cuz..
I'm Aquarius (x18)

Story
Introduction
"What is this music?"

In 1986, Hali first heard House music explode from the speakers of a local new wave club in Downtown Toronto, and asked that very question. Who would know that it would be such a pivotal moment in his life?

In the years that followed, he witnessed House and Techno drive the underground scene in what would cumulate into the legendary Summer of Love. He attended many of the influential warehouse parties of the day, rubbing shoulders alongside the likes of Depeche Mode, Nitzer Ebb, and 808 State. In 1993, Hali was taken on private tours at the Go Bang! warehouse in Amsterdam and attended one of the original Orbital warehouse raves in London with the Chemical Brothers, Darren Emerson, and of course, Orbital on the bill; his first real introduction to the rave scene. Back home in Toronto, he worked with the largest concert promoters in Canada and was a team leader at Lollapalooza from 1992 to 1995 in the thriving underground techno side-stage area. It was clear that Hali had discovered his true music niche, and an undeniable passion for underground music and it's culture. To be sure, Hali was privileged to experience the behind-the-scenes making of House and Techno from very early on.

Ever since those early days, everything Hali has touched has been magic. In 1995, he signed a recording contract with Silent Records over the Internet‚ - an Internet first‚ - while his tracks reached number 1 on College Radio Dance charts. In 1998, he received the highly-regarded Editor's Pick in Future Music for his music production and began producing music for artists such as Decoded Feedback for Talla 2XLC's Music Research Germany, reaching critical acclaim.

In 1999, after his contract netcasting Dose and Lifeforce's massive Connected raves, Hali founded the award-winning Netmusique Internet radio station, which is more popular than ever, reaching over 1 million listeners per month. He received international attention with his acclaimed radio show 'Cold Tea' each Thursday night at 9 pm EST on Netmusique Electrique, ranking Top 3 for Minimal Techno by AOL/SHOUTcast. Beyond that, he has made many radio appearances including on Toronto's CIUT 89.5 FM, 1groove.com, Windsor's CJAM 91.5 FM for a live DEMF special, and Berlin's Herbstradio 99.1FM, as well as internationally televised performances on CBC, MuchMusic, Discovery Channel, and the Life Network.

Spinning an infectious blend of Raw, Deep, Minimal Techno and Tech House, Hali draws from his House music ethos, carried over from his experience running the Poundhouse promotion company from 1998-2004. He appears regularly at Toronto's top underground techno events and has performed around the globe including North America, Europe, and Asia. Hali's ability to play unique yet accessible sets have found him playing at after-parties for the Detroit Electronic Music Festival (DEMF), after-parties at the Grammy Awards in NYC, and even top-tier fashion shows, including Donna Karen for NBC/Universal and Greta Constantine.

In April 2008, Hali performed at the internationally renowned Full Moon festival on Ko Pha Ngan, Thailand. His guest appearance on the island's largest sound system, at Full Moon originator's The Rock, drew the attention of the local music industry and international party-goers alike. It helped earn him an enthusiastic residency at Mellow Mountain Bar, overlooking the stunning soft white sands of Haadrin's Sunrise Beach.

Hali has been privileged to performed alongside some of the most respected deep house and deep techno artists including Rolando, Carl Craig, Marc Romboy, Martinez, Lee Burridge, Nick Curly, M1, Soulgrabber, Jay-J, Boo Williams, Miguel Migs, Junior Boys, Marshall Jefferson, The Rurals, Kevin Yost, Dubtribe Sound System, Alton Miller, Matthias Heilbronn, DJ Sneak, Joris Voorn, and countless others.

Hali continues to perform at select DJ gigs, and is regarded as an accomplished visionary. Through collaboration and partnership with its underground community, he has become a key player in Toronto's thriving underground dance music scene. In his spare time, Hali organizes successful members-only underground loft and warehouse parties known as Box of Kittens, receiving top music commendations in both of Toronto's independent weekly newspapers, Eye and Now magazines.
