My latest release on Punchout! comes out on 12 Inch vinyl this Monday. Thought it would be fun to celebrate at The Recovery Room with a few of my favorite djs.

Now available on Groove Dis

I might have a few copies to give away if the shipping goes as planned. Pre-view the release here:

Homebreakin Records

Woodhead is back once again with a sure-shot four track banger of an EP that will keep you dancing all night and most of the next day.

The Music is an ode to roller skating that will keep you bouncing with flanged out disco bass and more than enough disco wind.

On The Floor is a straight forward roller with hiphop lyrical snippets that tell you that terrible funk is what's up and you know it is.

Electricity brings the elastic funk guitar and percussion that will keep you break dancing even after the cardboard wears out

Crazy Motion is about a love affair that lasts including a moog solo that might land you on the moon although the song might just be about trying to have sex on a water bed

Caturday Night Disco

(Fool's Gold/InStereo)

Duo Solidisco is the fastest growing name in house music. With a fresh recipe that revitalizes the classic sounds with today's musical trends, it's no surprise they're gaining popularity at unprecedented speeds. The duo has DJed club nights alongside heavyweights such as Diplo and Steve Aoki, and their records have been supported by the likes of A-Trak and Laidback Luke.

Featured on "In the Mix" with Kissy Sellout and BBC Radio 1, the duo's initial release, "Hooked" on indie-label "Get Right Records" was supported by LaidBack Luke and DJ Chuckie. The record received U.S. radio play and was remixed by countless DJs. With tracks out on Fool's Gold Records, as well as various releases set for 2014, Solidisco is successfully introducing a retro sound to an EDM electronic era.

Anza Club tonight. I'm setting up an LED lighting installation for this party.

Chinatown Events & Friendly Monster Records present; RED DEVIL DISCO 003 [Red Light Party] at the Anza Club

Deep Disco | Disco House | Boogie | Rare Edits [vinyl only]


DJ OSMOSE, Atlanta, GA (Smokecloud, Whiskey Disco, FMR001)

Turntablist flare with dancefloor sensibility, Osmose has worked with a wide range artists such as Grandmaster Flash, Sleazy McQueen, Ursula 1000, Nicola Conta, Thunderball, Ramadanman, Boozoo Bajou, Boo Williams, Kai Alce, Mykal Rose, Collie Buddz, The Aggrolites, Dubconscious and The Wailers (both versions of the group). Osmose plays a variety of styles from Disco, Funk, Soul, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Deep House, to Nudisco & more, but always keeps it analog! With over 17 years experience behind the decks Osmose now spends most of his time touring North and South America with lots of records.

In 2011 Osmose launched Smokecloud records, a vinyl only label that is mastered and pressed in the USA. The label focuses on the slower side of soul & funk based dance music, but sprinkles in a few dancefloor burners. The label is geared towards DJ’s that play a diverse array of venues. Outside of vinyl releases on Smokecloud records, he also has vinyl out on the France based Whiskey Disco imprint and Canada's Friendly Monster records with forthcoming tracks on the Toronto based Long Weekend records, Honey Disco and a remix on the Boogie & Beatdown imprint Rotating Souls.


* HRISTO [Friendly Monster Records & Honey Disco]

Raised by a rare music collector while growing through a major revolution period of dance culture of Eastern Europe; later discovering western Europe’s underground music scene, Hristo has experienced and learnt a lot and he has brought it with him to the Canadian west coast. His sets are built with erotic stompers, vintage progressive psychedelics and cosmic funk combined with modern dance sounds; all timeless grooves forming an epic, character rich dance cocktail that takes mind and body on a journey.

Hristo’s 12” vinyl only project Friendly Monster Records marked the beginning of his 2014 music endeavours featuring cuts from him, Koosh and Osmose, both legendary masters with regular limited vinyl only releases. Hristo is also the guy behind Honey Disco Records, experimental label releasing oddity looking and sounding records that are gaining more and more popularity in the underground scenes throughout the world. Started as an experiment back in 2011 with an annual release schedule now the label is featuring some really obscure cuts from Hristo, Koosh and Eddie C. As per usual there is a release party celebrating each release and now also with the idea of doing one in a different location around the world. So far Victoria and Berlin have been put on the map with next one coming out this summer set to be in another major city on the west coast. Hristo edits and reworks are also featured on Smokecloud Records. Osmose’s Atlanta based vinyl only label that is featuring tracks by some very well established and regarded talents in the industry.

* BENDY [Friendly Monster Records 002]

A Summer Serries veteran. Like many of Bendys vinyl only records he can only be heard live.

* INKSTER [Chinatown Events]

An all around weirdo with weird eclectic record collection.

Cover Charge: $10 presale - More at the door.

Body Language 13.jpg

Triskaidekaphobia, a word coined in 1911, refers to a fear of the number 13. It gives name to this aversion to what is truly an arbitrary numerical representation of quantity. Had we decided to use ᓰﬡ to represent the position of the object after number 12, people would probably find some way to be symbolically scared of ᓰﬡ. Interestingly, several of music's brightest lights have tackled superstition as subject matter - Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson, The Pixies, and Steve Miller have all taken inspiration from this quirk of human nature. So in the spirit of psychological liberation and lyrical polemics, we invite you to enjoy a night of dancing. Superstitious or not, thirteen is a milestone, and if you're like me, you're already getting withdrawal from that classic get-down feeling. So, join us for a night of kinetic conversation and be reminded of your eloquent bodies by...

DJ Soup (Nelson / Pagoda)

One of the vertebrae in the backbone of Kootenay party music, Rob Campbell has most recently been instrumental in re-envisioning the Main Stage at Shambhala. His guidance has transformed and electrified audiences not only with stunning stagecraft, but also careful and considered musical choices. His DJ sets are similarly curated- a true collector and digger, he combines unreleased and up-to-the-minute fresh goods with forgotten gems of the vinyl era.

Our Friends at Some Kind Of Music Blog put together a compilation featuring some fine producers. Hit up their site to download. Link below.

"Today, we are thrilled to begin a new chapter for SKMB with the release of our first compilation album. Over the past year our team of music enthusiasts has blossomed into some kind of family. Along the way, we have had the opportunity to work with a ton of really talented individuals putting a lot of time and energy into creating forward thinking music and events in their cities. This compilation is an opportunity for us to showcase the work of some of the friends that we’ve met along the way thus far.

SKMB Compilation Vol 1 features music by 11 artists from Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and the UK. The album begins with local feel good house favs WMNSTUDIES & KID VIBE before going into a playful house track from Homebreakin Records vet Spilt Milk. Next up is a collaboration from Nelson born, Vancouver based artist Ryan Wells and Calgary’s Wax Romeo, two artists that have been tearing it up on the regional festival circuit the past couple of years. Following is a spacey house remix of local duo CLYPHS by one of our favourite guys in the local scene, BIKES. From there things get a little deeper and darker with music from two Vancouver duo’s, Howl Sound and Clyphs, as well as Toronto based artist Third Floor. The album finishes off with two songs from UK artists, one pounding house track from WATSN followed by a more mellow and spaced out beat to finish it all off from London’s Artikal.

Huge thanks to Michael Levine for sponsoring this album and making it happen!"

You've seen the movie - now read the book! Shambhala's magic extends past that mystical weekend and straight into our lives allllll year long... right? So let's fire up the band and celebrate the outrageous talent of our city by reliving the glory of our rave conquests in our own heartland.


Vancouver's premier afro-latin dance band slaughters dancefloors with its world-class 4-piece rhythmic firestorm.

Lighta's don (you have to call him a don in bios for some reason) needs no introduction. Seen.

A massive year for the syncopation man with releases on Brownswood, B.YRSLF Division, and many others.

Aufect boss is a stone-faced killer. Crushing polyrhythms and crunk vibes.

Weird fashion sense, decent dub house music.

Dread pirate nightmare raz vocal guru notches belts and controls vibes.

Recent moves include massive EPs on PUNCHOUT!, stunning ravers with Lighthead! visuals at festies, and grinning alot.

SKMB collaborator and all-round great dude. Rising beast in the deep-house game and party pleasing execution.

bass coast 2014-poster-clyphs-smaller.jpg

Bass Coast Festival was off the hook this year! They really took the production to the next level with the greatest people on the planet to party with. Def my favorite festival of the summer. I got to perform visuals on Saturday night at The Radio Stage as well as perform a live set with Clyphs. Can't wait untill next year.

Bass Coast Festival 2014 was a complete success. Watch for 2015 dates, coming soon.
Bass Coast Festival is a 4-day summer outdoor music festival, located in Merrit, British Columbia.

Bass Coast’s primary vision is to contribute to the West Coast arts community, by building a festival with international recognition. We are very proud to be west-coaster’s. The name Bass Coast has the initials of the land and environment we are deeply connected to. The love of electronic music, community, and creative innovation in all forms, is at the core of the experience we are passionate about providing.

The rich culture that surrounds our music is a creative community of artists, scientists, designers, yogi’s, environmentalists, freedom fighters, business minds, intellectuals, party-goers, poets and dancers. We believe the Bass Coast community is a supportive environment where participants are inspired to explore deeper layers of themselves.

Bass coast has no corporate sponsorship.

Festivus is back at Jolly Lake for our 3rd year ... #10 for the festival over all. This year July 18th-20th.
What started as an adventure, turned into a tradition and now has become legend. After 2yrs off the Festivus crew took stock, and with much consideration, relaunched in 2012 at a new home ... to high praise and acclaim from the 400 attendees.

Now situated at a private campground east of Osoyoos, up in the hills with our own private lake, Festivus offers a truly unique vibe and venue unlike any other small festival.

Although Festivus has changed with the sounds over the years, the core weight of the festival has and always will be HOUSE. We provide an environment warmth and unity exemplified by the genre, and couldn't be happier about it's recent return to dominance.

We had an amazing weekend bringing the visuals and sound to Manning Park resort for Hoot Camp 2014. Thanks to Adrian and Andrea who organized the celebration and brought the newly constructed Transformational Projects sauna bus. Karlis did and excellent job of building the sauna which has windows and seats at least 15 people. It kept us hot and sweaty till the early hours! Props to Perception Environments for erecting the pyramids.

My edit of Gloria Gaynor is out on Montreal label Editorial this week. Really pleased to see the ep reach number one for this weeks releases on JunoDownload and my own edit reached number fifteen on the singles chart which is nothing to scoff at:) Check it out below, all the tunes are top notch.

"With sunshine bathing much of Britain, it seems a fitting time for the Editorial label to celebrate the arrival of summer. Heat WAVs, their latest split EP, oozes sun-kissed warmth. Voodoo Whiskey kicks things off with the hazy Balearic deep house bliss of "Desert Stroll", before "Joutro Mundo" drops some compressed disco edit action in the shape of the rather lovely "Roller Shake". Woodhead and Hakatone continue the celebratory feel with a pair of righteous disco-funk bumpers (the superb "Party Down Tonight" and "Sugarbaby" respectively), before Tikki draws an excellent EP to a close with "The Crooner", a curious but effective combination of easy listening vocals and swinging house grooves."

A walk through the shady alleys of East Vancouver at night can reveal a host of grimy elements. Cat fights, hushed chatterings, and strange encounters with roving bands of unsatisfied youth... yep, the place is definitely a little bit like a B-Movie. Throw in some cheap thrills, hastily crafted set pieces and the obligatory wooden acting that goes along with it, and you've got a recipe for an atypical night out.

Eastside party-munsters Homebreakin Records, Studio East, and Some Kind Of Music Blog collaborate for the first time ever on this mash-up of strange talent, grindhouse tropes, and dancefloor mayhem. You can trust the immersive environment will spurn you on to your seediest.

Featuring your EDITORS...


Howl Sound
GI Gordon Blunt


DJ Cure
That African
Andy Chambers

This party will be a celebration of our great pal Jake Jacobucci's 50th birthday.
