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."

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:

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)

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

Superstar lineup to be announced as the show approaches

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.

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.

Cover charge goes towards Application Audio to help it to continue to subsidize alternative events and spaces like Vancouver Art and Leisure.

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!

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.

Caterday night disco feb 2015.jpg

I'm on visuals and lighting tonight. this is going to be a full on get down.

Caturday Night Disco

Boston, USA

With a repertoire of guaranteed floor fillers, J Paul Getto, can now be crowned the new minister of funk.

The JPG sound is a seamless plenty of contemporary techniques with classic samples of danceable beats and heartfelt emotions that really get the girls in a spin. Though an experienced producer in his own right, it was the coming together at a dinner party in September 2010 that really set JPG off on a path to stardom. With the help of Maurice Tamraz (which was a crucial part of the JPG sound) and Neil Petricone of X-Mix Productions , J Paul Getto mined his own unique vein of sample heavy disco house, creating an impressive body of work in such a short time, releasing tracks like ‘Imma Let You Know’, ‘3000’, and ‘Paris Fried Chicken’ to rapturous receptions everywhere.

JPG is a part of the X-Mix Productions family alongside the likes of DJ Sneak, Armand van Helden and sometime collaborator and kicking house legend, Todd Terry. As a remixer he is in high demand, re-working the likes of Duck Sauce, DJ Sneak, Joey Negro, Louis La Roche, Treasure Fingers, Roy Davis Jr and many more. One of their biggest remixes of 2012 came in their rework of Will Monotone’s ‘Dem Mai Hoes’, a dazzling production which took his sound to every corner of the globe.

2012 saw J Paul Getto play some legendary events across US, closing the X-Mix party with Todd Terry in Miami and featuring on a stacked lineup at Coachella Festival. J Paul Getto continues to release original works and remixes across reputable labels such as Z Records, Diamondhouse, Hed Kandi, Fogbank and with support coming from none other than P. Diddy himself for his remix of Nas' "The Don", his stock is only set to rise further.

In 2013 we saw JPG release tracks like Different Folks & Handle Your Scandal on Dj Mes' Guesthouse Records, The Getto Life EP on Joey Negro's Z Records and several remixes for the prestigious Salsoul label on Ultra Records.

I'm on visuals tonight.

Intimate Productions proudly presents...

★ Scuba (London UK, Hotflush Recordings) ★

★ 2015 North American Tour ★

with Matt Hudolin & Bokeh

Saturday February 7th, 2015
at Electric Owl Social Club

For more info, visit

Since 2003, Paul Rose – better known to the world as techno maverick Scuba – and his Hotflush imprint have shaped the direction of the electronic scene’s bass-heavy landscape more than most.

Starting with the underground garage sound that became dubstep, and gradually teasing its dark, bass-heavy sonics through abstract electronica, jacking house and cavernous techno, they are the underground tastemakers behind era-defining club smashes like Joy Orbison’s ‘Hyph Myngo’ and 2013’s ‘Untitled’, the ubiquitous piano house banger by Paul Woolford. They also launched the careers of innovators as diverse as Mount Kimbie, George FitzGerald, and Sepalcure.

As a DJ and producer, meanwhile, Rose’s personal achievements have seen him ascend to rank among the UK’s electronic luminaries. He has released three artist albums, spun a mix for the esteemed DJ Kicks series, run a night at Berghain, and won a DJ Mag Best Live Act award in 2013.

A musical contrarian, Scuba has deliberately pushed against dance music currents, changing course when it suits him. After the melancholic statement that comprised his 2008 debut A Mutual Apathy, he released 2010’s Triangulation, a widely acclaimed opus steeped in shadowy cross-genre electronics.

That was swiftly followed by excursions into deep 4/4 rhythms under the pseudonym SCB and then, almost out of nowhere, the release of 2011’s Adrenalin EP which paved the way for the following year’s jubilant 90’s house-inflected Personality album. “Even though Triangulation was incredibly popular I made a very conscious decision not to continue in that kind of stuff” says Rose, “I intended for a good proportion of the people that were into Triangulation to hate Personality.”

As a label, Hotflush’s output has changed as much as the constantly developing Scuba sound. After a period where album projects were the norm on the label, the recent direction has been towards, as he puts it, “the grassroots nitty-gritty dance-scene stuff”.

He continues: “We made a conscious decision to move away from albums and just release singles last year, which worked really well. We’ve released less and tried to make each single more of an event. In 2015 we’re going to be back into albums though.”

Moving forward, 2014 heralded a fresh musical approach for Scuba. Speaking frankly, he explains: “I felt that I’d taken that approach of being intentionally contrary to its fullest conclusion and that it was time to do something different.” The Phenix series of EPs were the first sign of that: a darker, more introspective musical direction melding dancefloor dynamics with brooding atmospheres and spectral vocals.

With a new album scheduled for March 2015 those foundations look sure to be cemented in the months ahead, and with notable releases for Recondite and Locked Groove, the future for Rose and the Hotflush label looks as diverse and exciting as always.

Scuba rarely departs from his hallowed European homeland, we highly urge that you don’t miss out on his upcoming Vancouver appearance on Saturday February 7th at Electric Owl Social Club.

About The Artists:

(Mutek, Mexico/Mayan Warrior)
Damian Romero is a busy man. Known throughout North America and Europe as a prized DJ, producer and creative director, he has made a name for himself in Mexico City producing high quality cultural events like MUTEK MX, the international festival of digital creativity & electronic music, reBERV experimental rock sessions with Vice, and many others. At nights he only DJs Mexico City’s more sought out after parties and heads M.N. Roy’s programming— considered by many to be one of the best underground clubs in the world. He is also one of the music curators and resident DJs at MAYAN WARRIOR (Burning Man), which is a collaborative group of artists, builders, photographers, designers, technologists, architects and musicians from Mexico City and Northern California. The man behind MUTEK MX, which celebrated its eleventh edition last year, is known to always deliver edgy, avant-garde and forward thinking aesthetics, no matter what he does. So expect nothing less….

(R.I/ Live P.A)
Container is the musical project of Ren Schofield.Heavy and hypnotic in its crunching power, the Container project is a rhythmic tour de force: a constant, menacing display built from cassette tapes and analogue synths. Schofield's an outsider creating his own path, and Container maintains a glued-at-the-seams feel even when his fusion of noise and dance is perfect.

Let's face it - deciding what to do on New Year's eve is super annoying. Now you don't have to think about it, because this party is going to rule.

You get there. You go upstairs. Find yourself in our Calypso Concept Lounge, digging the tunes. After you ditch the coat, munch some veggie sushi and quaff some premium cocktail infusions, you head downstairs. Friends to the left. Friends to the right. Hot babes of all genders served up on a fiery dancefloor of passion, gyrating orgiastically to the sounds of a musical alliance that spans decades.

Darshan at Beaumont Dec 2014.jpg

Line up:
Darshan Jesrani (Startree, Environ / NYC)
Koosh, DJ Neighbour, James Flavour

More info:
Darshan Jesrani’s recording project “Metro Area” (together with partner Morgan Geist)has left an indelible mark on the dance music landscape. Known for its forward-looking,
freestyle recombination of influences, Metro Area’s work revolves around experiments with classic production styles and the songwriting focus of disco, new-wave/synth-pop
and R&B. Metro Area has injected much needed doses of funk, sensuality, mood and space back into the loop-based and seldom-subtle world of underground dance.

Their 2002 debut album elicited superlative responses from The New York Times to TheOnion, from web-logs to the Wire. Metro Area won a place among Rolling Stone’s “Top
50 Albums of 2002”, a rock and rap-dominated list for which most club/dance projects are not even considered. Further accolades include BBC/Radio 1’s “Dance Album of theYear” and a “Best New Artist” prize at the 2003 DanceStar/American Dance Awards.

In 2007, Darshan caught the collective ear with his co-writing, production and remix work(alongside Ewan Pearson and Klas “Sasse” Lindblad) on “It’s All True”, the debut single from beloved UK singer Tracey Thorn’s (Everything but the Girl) solo album “Out of the
Woods” (Virgin). This release made waves in broader arenas and was touted as a freshand uplifting update of the Funhouse-style, vocal-led, New York City synth-pop sound of the early/mid-80s.

Darshan’s extended “Parks Dept. Dub” remix of “Starlight”, an underground hit by celebrated and hungry New York disco upstarts Escort (July 2006) landed on the yearend
top-10 lists of many DJs known for their selections and taste.

Metro Area 7, the latest in a series of 12” EPs, was released November 2007 to superlative praise. Metro Area’s mix CD for Fabric (late 2008) was considered by Pitchfork to be both of one of the best modern disco mixes and one of the best in the series. In 2010 Resident Advisor named Metro Area’s “Miura” number 1 in their top 100 singles of the past decade, and their Metro Area album at number 2 in their top 100 albums of the past decade.

Having completed the first phase of his studio, which operates out of a commercial loft in Brooklyn, Darshan is preparing a battery of material for release on his new Startree imprint, produced and distributed exclusively by Word and Sound.

Startree’s first release “All-Night People” by Funn City was released at the end of last year and was included in Spin’s Top 50 dance singles of 2013.

Darshan’s unique remixes for Permanent Vacation, Rekids and Mock & Toof, among others, have stood on their own as playable pieces of music, irrespective of the original works.

Darshan performs worldwide both as a solo DJ, and as a DJ and live PA together with Morgan Geist as Metro Area.

It is November. A time to reclaim your happiness, to shout "fuck you!" to the onset of rainy season blahs. Not like it gets any easier. What with the price of limes, the amount of electioneering going on, the intransigent evisceration of progressive dialog by monolithic cabals of self-interested myopic sociopaths, the embargo on pogs(tm), and the all-consuming demands of the media age... but where was I? Oh yes. Reclaiming your happiness.

Body Language 14 purports to offer the following:

- Various rooms of friends
- Nice sound
- Artesenal Visuals by Lighthead Visuals
- Good drinks
- Throwback and throw-forward chunes

"Hello Friends!

We would like to invite you to our first photography exhibit - - - THE PASSION PROJECT - - -

Photography is our passion and we have used it to connect to so many amazing people around the world.
We will be showing an intimate collection of images captured during our recent travels in South East Asia and India. For 8 months we were immersed in the unknown learning about ourselves, the world and our art. Now we want to share all the beautiful, shocking and hilarious stories that we have documented with you.
Join us for an evening in pictures at the Remington Gallery in the downtown east side of Vancouver.
We hope we can inspire everyone to open their minds and follow their heart.

The gallery viewing will be accompanied by a short documentary complied from personal footage that was shot while we were wandering around.
Gather to watch the film amongst friends and family then, stay and groove to some smooth beats by the fantastic"
