Editorial-52.jpg

My new Ep of Soul, Funk, Disco edits and re-works is currently doing it's rounds on the juno download charts. Thanks for the support anyone who purchased the tunes. You'll find them perfect for cool summer nights or hot sandy beach days. Have a great summer xo

Review: "Having previously appeared on Homebreakin' records, it was probably only a matter of time before Vancouver's Darren Woodhead popped up on Montreal's Editorial Records. Next To You is a typically cheery, floor-friendly EP, blending classic funk, soul disco and boogie samples with subtle house and breaks grooves. As a result, there's plenty to excite, from the jazzy guitar solos and sun-kissed disco grooves of "You Blew It", to the dreamy electrofunk shuffle of "So Devine". Those in search of straight-up dancefloor dynamite should head for opener "Party Hearty", a swinging, good-time funk/nu-disco hybrid featuring rubbery bass and razor-sharp horns aplenty."

Got a decent recording of my set last Saturday. Thank you to everyone that joined us to celebrate The Body language launch at the all new Beaumont Studios. Listen on Mixcloud here:


Woodhead at Body Language 17 The Beaumont Studios, May 22 2015 by Woodhead on Mixcloud

Posted by woodhead

body-language-16-May22.jpg

It's been a roller coaster of a journey, but finally we have arrived!! The Beaumont Studios has doubled in total size, tripled in radness, and quadrupled the available dance floor space. We're installing a $80k sound system in the ceiling of the event space, creating a cardioid array of thumping hi-def subwoofers, and state-of-the-art lighting / visuals setup. 326 W 5th Ave is HERE!

In honour of our big-tent philosophy and radically inclusive mandate, we've reached out to new quadrants of our epic dance music community for talent and inspiration. All we need is YOU to make our coming-out party special, and to re-establish our little shindig as one of the must-attend regular parties in Vancouver.

featuring your selectors :

Dunks (Funk Hunters, Westwood Recordings)

There's no denying the force of Dunks. As a founding member of The Funk Hunters and one of the West Coast's most in-demand DJs, he's provided eclectic sets ranging from the smokiest hiphop to the most up-front funk and house grooves. You can expect a different approach this time as our man explores the four-on-the-floor lexicon and makes his Body Language debut.

listen : https://soundcloud.com/dunks

Tyler Lewis

DJ / Producer / Musician Tyler Lewis has been established in the Vancouver House Music scene since the late 90's. While using the past 15 years to experiment with the many styles that make up the electronic musical spectrum, Tyler has come to embrace the deeper sounds of House and Techno. His recent productions reflect this sensibility as he prepares to launch a live set consisting of his yet to be released catalogue of original music. Look forward to old school "Late House" baselines, garage shuffle and warm melodies.

LLW-May-2015-Fred-Falke-.jpg

I'll be on the visuals and I might bring down some wicked lighting effects.
Intimate Productions presents Legendary Long Weekend :: #VictoriaDayBash At The Waldorf | Sunday May 17th

May long weekend, Victoria Day. The celebration of our royalty. Whether you care or not, you get Monday off and we have a party; and a great party at that, with not one but three rooms of killer music at the fabulous Waldorf. Who is playing you ask? How about Fred Falke (France), WMNSTUDIES, Bokeh, Kalibo, the SHAHdjs crew and more! So whether you've ever seen a diamond in the flesh or cut your teeth on wedding rings in the movies or not, you should come party with us at LLW!

About Fred Falke

French disco-house producer Fred Falke first rose to prominence by collaborating with Stardust co-producer Alan Braxe on a series of 12"s on the Vulture Music and Kitsuné labels, most notably the synth pop-inspired 2003 hit "Rubicon." These tracks were collected on Braxe's 2005 compilation The Upper Cuts. The duo became in-demand remixers, completing mixes for Death from Above 1979, Kelis, Goldfrapp, Röyksopp, Justice, and many others, until ending their partnership in 2008. Falke also began working with German house producer Kris Menace, remixing his 2004 single "Missile Test" (as part of duo Menace & Adam) and guesting on his 2006 single "Fairlight." Falke released a few solo singles and EPs, starting with 2006's "Omega Man," and most of these tracks were collected on his 2011 full-length Part IV, released by Kris Menace's Work It Baby imprint. Falke has been far more prolific as a remixer and producer than a solo artist, adding smooth disco guitar and electro-house beats to tracks by a variety of pop, rock, R&B, and dance artists ranging from Hot Chip and VHS or Beta to Ke$ha, Sia, Katy Perry, and Lana Del Rey. He has also co-written and produced songs for several British pop stars, including Ellie Goulding, Florrie, and Will Young.

On-The-Horizon-Ben-E-King-Woodhead-Remix-lrg.gif

This remix is my tribute to Benjamin Earl King a great Soul and R&B singer who recently died on April 30th 2015. This song appears on the B-side of the Stand By Me 7" released in 1961.

The first time i heard this song i fell in love with it's lush dreamy flow. I imagine he's singing about making contact with aliens. We might never know.

Beaumont-Soft-Opening-Celebration-April-24th-flyer.gif

Get your soft opening down here tonight to check out the all new Beaumont. We're super excited about the possibilities of the new space!

The expansion of the new Beaumont Studios at 326 W 5th has been such an inspiring project to watch unfold. We've all been hustling around the clock to renovate the physical space and also to reinvent the horizons of the studio as a creative home for new artist-tenants, event production clients, and the public at large. With the construction phase nearly out of the way, it's time for us to invite our friends and family to come and imbue the new dance floor with some energy - and to give our hard-working staff and management a chance to blow off some steam and have some fun.

We've decided to do a small prelaunch for our friends to come in and see what's been done so far. Entry is by donation (suggested $20.00) but everyone will be welcomed with open arms regardless.

Neighbour, Howl Sound, Steve TCI and Woodhead will be playing music on a stripped-back version of the upcoming sound installation ($80,000 suspended PA rig), and we will be enjoying some lovely libations from the Beaumont's new Bar / Kitchen facilities.

If you get this invitation, it means we love ya and want ya here. We will be keeping it tight lipped, so only bring your closest friends and lets get a dance on while the space is still a virgin."

Darby's-Kitchen-Sync-VAL-April-10-15.jpg

Tonight we're going to try to beat match two rooms of music at VAL

My set is a 2am

"Lets try something new.

Application Audio, in collaboration with Vancouver Art and Leisure presents...
★ Kitchen Sync ★
A new sound+art project by Application Audio

Application Audio, the Westcoast's leading supplier of dank sound, has come up with this crazy idea of synching two rooms together in an inception level brain loop of follow the leader. Thankfully we know a tonne of dj's that just might have the skills to make it work.... Check it:

★THE CONCEPT ★
There will be 2 rooms isolated from each other with a dj in each room. Each DJ has a stereo feed from the other room and the goal is to keep their set in time and on beat to the other room.
The DJ will be able to monitor the other room via one stereo channel of his/her mixer. The audience will not hear that channel unless the DJ decides to bring that feed in to the mix. The DJs need to work together to keep their sets sync'd to each other. Their music might be completely free of elements from the other room, or it might constitute a blend of elements from the other room. Essentially the audience will experience a synchronized blend of environments while transitioning from room to room or standing in the threshold of both rooms.

The sound systems are physically the same distance from the shared entrance, so the physical delays will match in the area that both systems are heard, meaning that for once that area will sound really cool. (which is where i would want to be all night)

note:
We will set tempo rules and time lines for both rooms to simplify the execution of this concept.

★ THE MUSIC ★
Superstar lineup to be announced as the show approaches

DJ's!
We are expecting some of the biggest local names to join this experiment!

To participate:
Please send a PM with your information and any time restrictions that you may have to Jules Atkinson, and she will coordinate with Darby (Application Audio's Lead Director) to organize set times.
Please include your lowest and highest BPM range to properly match you to a DJ in the other room.

★ EVENT DETAILS ★
This is going to be an very experimental evening. Cover will be a sliding scale. Just like the BPM's we will be matching your cover charge to you.

$10-$20
10pm-?
Cover charge goes towards Application Audio to help it to continue to subsidize alternative events and spaces like Vancouver Art and Leisure.

OH YAH, and DID WE MENTION THAT IT'S DARBY'S BDAY?!?!?!"

I set up a lighting and visuals installation for this great cause.

Feeling like giving back while having a blast out with some fabulous friends and great music? Well here's your chance to do just that!

This is a formal event, so don your best dress or most stylin suit!

Details: There are three ticket options. Your $40 ticket includes a fabulous and elegant party featuring musical DJ guests Clinical Trials (Jimmy Haslam and Todd Wautier) and Heroes of Awesometown (Andy Clockwork and Patrick Kelly) as well as vocals by Ingrid Hakanson, canapes by Johnny Brasco, a drink ticket, and two raffle tickets for some amazing prizes by local businesses.

A small number of $20 tickets will be available for those who cannot afford to come otherwise. Please reserve these tickets for those who truly cannot afford full price.

There is also the option to donate to the event without getting a ticket. All three options will be tax deductible*

We have all seen the news about the Ebola crisis and felt helpless to do anything about it. A very worthy charitable organization, Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), is working tirelessly in West Africa to help stop this outbreak. In fact, they have devastatingly lost several of their own volunteers to the disease. This cause is dear to my heart, as I had the privilege of joining the fight in Sierra Leone in January with Save the Children, working for 6 weeks in an Ebola Treatment Center.

MSF doesn't only work in West Africa, but have missions all over the world to deliver medical aid to low-resource environments. They need our help now more than ever. Best of all, unlike many other charities, 80% of donations received to MSF actually go to their relief efforts.

*Your tax credit will be calculated as follows:
Revenue from tickets sold + extra donations from those not attending + revenue from the bar + revenue from the raffle prizes = Total revenue - costs for running the event = Net revenue divided by number of ticket holders and donors = the amount you will each be credited for your tax receipt

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Body-Language-March-7-15.jpg

Tomorrow is Body Language 15 and the final party at the old Beaumont. Excited to see everyone for this send off!

Body Language 15 : The Re-Birth of Cool

Modal jazz has a few precepts that are shared with and mirrored closely in house and techno production. Both forms employ limited chord changes and explore fully the harmonic and tonal content within certain "modes", or derivative scales of the diatonic scale. In addition, both styles encourage the breaking of musical rules, employing atonal, dissonant, and percussive elements to disrupt the listener's sense of safety, of predictability, in the attempt to create a dynamic dialog between "in" and "out". Though the perfomance format is wildly different, the same inputs and creative philosophy prevails, which is the interraction between performers, audience, and some sense of "other" that's being tapped through a combination of virtuosity and spirituality.

Talent for Body Language 15

Rennie Foster - the legend, the dubnut himself. He's the man. Working dilligently on his career that spans decades and continents, Rennie's productions and sets have made an impact that keeps him in demand globally to this day. We're honoured to have such a battle-tested DJ grace the decks at our little jam, and I will put out the warning fair and square that this guy does not hold back and you should expect a full-on throwdown that stands in sharp contrast to what we might consider a "west coast sound". You'll bear witness to a large degree of improvisation and physicality with this wizard of rhythm and tone.
