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
presents

J PAUL GETTO
Nurvous//Guesthouse//Fogbank
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.

Scuba-Electric-Owl-Feb-15-2.jpg

I'm on visuals tonight.

Intimate Productions proudly presents...

★ Scuba (London UK, Hotflush Recordings) ★
www.intimateproductions.com/djs/Scuba

★ 2015 North American Tour ★

with Matt Hudolin & Bokeh

Saturday February 7th, 2015
at Electric Owl Social Club

For more info, visit www.intimateproductions.com/e/593

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:

DAMIAN ROMERO
(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….

CONTAINER
(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.

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.

Darshan at Beaumont Dec 2014.jpg

Line up:
Darshan Jesrani (Startree, Environ / NYC)
https://soundcloud.com/startreeny
Koosh, DJ Neighbour, James Flavour

http://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?660800
https://www.facebook.com/epiksoundagency
https://www.facebook.com/Homebreakin

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:

Revenants-halloween-2014-Duncan-2.jpg

For most of the world Halloween is a holiday where you strap on a costume and go door to door asking randoms for candy (which lets be honest, sounds like a lot of fun) but here at D-Blok Studios we do Halloween a little differently, namely with a giant sound system, big visuals, a couple hundred of our closest friends and some epic talent that will shake your boots off, including Salmon Arm heavyweight Abstrakt Sonance, Vancouver legend Woodhead and local superstars Spoon, Hertz Donut, B-Mid and of course the incomparable Badger! So get your tickets, and get on down to where Duncan's rave scene is the strongest and where the vibes can't be beat! GET SPOOKY!

---DJ LINEUP--

8-9 :: Badger
9-10 :: B-Mid
10-11 :: Spoon
11-12 :: Hertz Donut
12-130 :: Woodhead
130-3 :: Abstrakt Sonance

Abstrakt Sonance
A force like no other in the bass music world. Slaying every genre, plus experimenting into uncharted realms, Abstrakt is still very known world wide with his Dubstep and Drum & Bass. His influences and attitude were born from years of absolute madness, abuse, drugs, near death and a desire to use these negatives as a positive and create something new, something that constantly evolves with him on his new life. His mind is now on a focused path to constantly create and share his message and music with the world. With constant shows, and tours slowly tracing around the globe, Abstrakt will no doubt be a name, and a face, you wont soon forget. http://www.westaveproductions.com/abstraktepk.php

Woodhead
Homebreakin Records, East Van Digital
Vancouver’s Darren Woodhead is a West Coast institution. Having cut his teeth touring Western Canada and the States with punk bands, He then went on to host the now legendary Sauna Sessions podcast, broadcasting live from a mobile sauna party somewhere in East Van, and hosted the hugely popular Signal Saturdays at the now defunct Lotus Lounge. He was a mainstay at the Renegade stage at another fabled West Coast festival, Soundwave.
Fast forward to the present and Woodhead has played every big festival in Western Canada to much aplomb. Famous for marathon sets at hours no one in their right mind wants to play, Woodhead thrives playing for people who want to keep the vibe alive. Whether the crowd is in the thousands or single digits he makes sure everyone is dancing.
He has been producing in the studio as well, having some great remixes and originals on scene stalwarts Homebreakin’ Records, Montreal's Editorial Records as well as local upstart East Van Digital, and currently co-organizes the hugely popular Body Language Series in Vancouver with other local luminaries like Neighbour.
The DJ’s DJ, is true journeyman who has clocked more hours than anyone in the scene, Woodhead’s sets get better every year and are guaranteed to bring the vibe he is famous for. Who else can DJ in a 100 degree wooden box or battling 90km winds on Canada’s rugged west coast?
Look out for his new EP Morning Wood on Punchout! Recordings as well as a new album Voices from S2 collaboration Clyphs , this past October on Homebreakin Records.

Hertz Donut

Hertz Donut is the collective of Mitch Mckinnon (Apatchi Sound) and Tim Lange (CrashCourse). First meeting in 2013 - the duo were both hard at work with their solo projects, playing shows, and putting out music on a regular basis around BC's interior. In March of 2014, the duo packed up their belongings and lives, and headed for Vancouver Island. After many late nights spent around the studio in what was known as The 5D Paradigm Warehouse, Hertz Donut was born. The two have been busy ever since the idea first came to be, and are showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Expect to hear tonnes of new original music and remixes being cooked up constantly as these two sound addicts continue to glaze the world bass.

The-Music-Ep-Release-Party-Recovery-Room-2

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 http://www.groovedis.com/shop/Woodhead-THE-MUSIC-EP-12.html

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

http://www.juno.co.uk/products/woodhead-the-music-ep/544497-01/

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

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]

SPECIAL GUEST:

DJ OSMOSE, Atlanta, GA (Smokecloud, Whiskey Disco, FMR001)
http://www.djosmose.com/

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.

THE FAN TAN DISCO GANG

* HRISTO [Friendly Monster Records & Honey Disco]
https://soundcloud.com/hristostoev

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]
https://soundcloud.com/zinkster-1

An all around weirdo with weird eclectic record collection.

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