Rave-Aid-Open-Studios-March-13-2.jpg

5 mins away from downtown Vancouver (exact location will be announced on the day of on here and the info line (604-222-8744)

Alright, it's Rave time! What's that you ask? Well, you put together a whack of awesome DJs, a little warehouse space, friends and their friends, some groovy vibes, a flyer which rips off some product, an info line, and some lasers and you got yourself a Rave!

That's right boys and girls. Mark Bayrock and Farshad (aka Abasi) are turning 40 and figured since they have raved since there were raves, one needs to be put together to celebrate this special occasion. Both of these boys have contributed quite a bit to "the scene" over the last 15+ years both as DJs and in many others ways. Farshad co-founded Intimate Productions with his friends Steve and JJ and a few others back in 2000, and together they have brought many a legendary parties and club nights to town which most of you have attended over the years, while Mark and his friend Jim Baxter founded Endorphin images and fuelled pretty much every rave in the late 90s and early 00s with the best eye candy around!

What happens when you are so involved in the scene? Well pretty much all your friends are DJs or are involved somehow, which only means a killer line up as follows:

Max Ulis vs. Woodhead
Abasi + Glyn + Dr. Jones (aka Team Trainwreck)
Mike McSuede vs. Sven Torpedo
Mark Bayrock vs. Expo
Andy Clockwork vs. Daniel Bull
Ceebas vs. Aaron B
Dave Dirk
+ Smoothie on Sax!

Music format will be whatever the DJs feel like playing from house, tech, dub, techno, funky/groovy electronic dance beats, with dashes of throw back tracks thrown in there for good measure.

There will be killer sound, amazing visuals, smart energy drinks (guess they call those Red Bull vodka these days?), free caffeine pills, and other goodies. Oh, and did we mention lasers?

All proceeds from this event will go to the BC Cancer Society, so by attending you get to contribute to 3 good causes: your happiness, happiness of the bday boys, and contribution to charity. What more could you ask for? So go grab your ticket, find that rave outfit and let's do this like it's 199X.

Pre-sale tickets are only $10 (first 100, $15 after) and a bit more at the door.

Location TBA at noon on the day of the event. Info line: 604-222-8744

PS: YOU GET IN FREE IF IT IS ALSO YOUR BIRTHDAY ANYWHERE WITHIN A COUPLE OF WEEK BEFORE/AFTER THIS PARTY (message Farshad to get your free ticket).

PPS: SPECIAL AFTER PARTY TBA 'CAUSE THERE NEEDS TO BE MOAR RAVING!

*************
PPPS: PRIZE GIVE AWAY FOR BEST DRESSED RAVER BOY and RAVER GIRL ($50 gift certificate each to Eatery/General Public)

mobile-sauna-book.jpeg

Our mobile sauna master Karlis published a book about mobile saunas! It's already climbing up the New York Times best seller list. It's a compendium of modern nomadic sweats. No one knows more about building mobile saunas than Karlis. He's built three so far! Order your copy today! Here's the hard link:
http://www.lulu.com/shop/k%C4%81rlis-o-kalni%C5%86%C5%A1/mobile-saunas/p...

This is a collection of sauna trucks, sauna buses, sauna wagons, sauna cars, sauna bikes, sauna trailers, sauna boats, sauna floats, trail sweats, bastuflotten, bastubats, banya trucks, banya tents, and other mobile sweats. They are gathered from across North America, Russia, Europe and particularly Finland, where the annual Teuva mobile sauna festival attracts over 50 examples every year.

After building several mobile saunas, Kārlis began a multi-year study of the mobile sauna phenomenon in form and culture. Collected here is the result of that study, including photographs, viewpoints of builders, commentary and notes on design. Students of culture and architecture, sauna lovers and mobile sauna builders will appreciate the variety of forms, designs, styles and ideas revealed in this volume.

Metro-Area-Beaumont-march-13.jpg

I'm performing live visuals at Beaumont this Sat.
Line up:

DARSHAN JESRANI/ METRO AREA

Support from:

DIRT CREW (James Flavour / Berlin)

featuring:

Lighthead Visual Environment
Sweet Cocktails
Official Afterparty

more infos:
The brainchild of veteran producers Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani,
Metro Area was born out of the pair's somewhat dichotomous love for both
the old moods of R&B, disco and boogie and the more cutting-edge sound of
innovative house and techno. Metro Area brings back the soulful
experimentation of the early club classics, mixing live and electronic
instruments. Simultaneously, the mood and minimalism of more recent dance
music forms creep into the mix: Detroit's cold futurism, Chicago's abstract
track-modes, and the warmth of New York and New Jersey's deep house.

Prince-is-Not-Dead-2.jpg

Lyrics paying homage to one of the world's funkiest individuals, delivered with dark, pitched-down undertones. On paper this really shouldn't work. In reality it ruddy rocks. This is largely thanks to Prosper & Azaxx's quirky, off-beat shuffle groove underneath. Think Music For Freaks and you get the picture. Remix-wise Basement Freaks adds more of a breakbeat electro bite to the mix, Adam Polo adds a soaring riff and feel-good p-funk and Niko strips it down to a slinkier groove that flips between classic US and grittier UKG.

Charms-Beaumont-March-13.jpg

Going to be charming the crap out of you on live visuals tonight.

The Super Happy Dance Deejays and the Beaumont Studios present:

CHARMS: A SUPER HAPPY St. Paddy's Day Magically Delicious Funtime Party

Feat.

The SUPER HAPPY DANCE DEEJAYS

Charms have fascinated our society for thousands of years. They attract our eyes, and bring luck, prosperity, and power. The projection of energy and meaning that makes these physical objects a charm. Once energized, these gems of notoriety become powerful units that gain us entrance into the worlds that we desire.

A Charm can be an amulet, unit of measurement, a method to avoid the snakes in our lives, or represent eternal symbols of our past. Their heads can be spun, they may fly high in the sky, or they may dangle on our prized posessions. Charms may be traded, gifted, or won in a game of chance. They remain a symbol of truth, ward us from danger, and protect us from the unidentified. A charm can be a way of life, it can be a princely person, and the subtle act of charm may bring us all that we desire.

Charms – they power our ship of life, they bring us joy, and their glints may bring us our greatest desires.
We call ye all to celebrate an eternity of trinkets. Let us celebrate the Charms.

All Charms welcome – payment will be accepted in coin, gold, silver, and plastic whore money.

feat. the sounds of:

DJ "Leprechaun" EVO
DJ "Kiss Me, I may or may not be Irish" Hubbz
Spilt "Top o' the Mornin" Milk
DJ "Boiled Potatoes" Wood
DJ "Pot o Gold" Soo

Electric-Owl-Spotted-Justin-Martin-Feb-23-2013.jpg

It's been awhile since Justin Martin played in Vancouver. @homebeakin djs Fedski, Spiltmilk and Woodhead will be lighting it up in the second room. Abasi + Ryan Wells warming it up upstairs. Get there early.

*** Full event details at www.intimateproductions.com/e/437 ***

w/ Abasi + Ryan Wells

& Woodhead, Spilt Milk + Fedski in second room

Come get spotted.

@ Electric Owl Social Club : 928 Main Street [www.electricowl.ca]

_____________________________________

As the late Oscar Wilde once said: "life is too important to be taken seriously", an ethos that Justin Martin is sticking with despite achieving soaring success over the last six years as a producer and international DJ.Justin initially pricked the ears of the electronic music community in 2003 with his first record 'The Sad Piano' on Ben Watt's Buzzin' Fly label. Everyone in the electronic music food chain got involved, from the A list DJs like Derrick Carter and Pete Tong that were playing the track, to the international music press that were raving about it. It even translated to the German underground, with Poker Flat licensing it for Steve Bug's 'Bugnology' compilation. Like someone that goes bowling for the first time and gets five strikes and a turkey, Justin couldn't really have hoped for a better entrance.Feeding off the energy of the San Francisco underground and mentored by fellow super producer Claude VonStroke, Justin was intrinsically involved with the development of dirtybird records, appearing on its first four releases. Justin was soon ready to take flight, releasing a string of solo EPs which flaunted a very unique sound and garnered still more respect among fellow DJS and heavyweight's of the scene.

Body-Language-6-After-Party-blk.jpg

Aufect & 314 are back with the second show in our Spring events series, and this one is going to be a MONSTER. An official afterparty for Body Language 6. http://www.facebook.com/events/472898059435036/
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Who? Myrryrs (Body High, B.Yrslf) /|\ Max Ulis (Tenpin, Lighta!) /|\ Woodhead vs Neighbour (Homebreakin, Punchout) /|\ HxdB vs Cure (Aufect, Sloth Crew)

When? Saturday, February 9th, 1 AM - LATE

Where? That Place ;) *MESSAGE ONE OF THE HOSTS FOR LOCATION IF YOU DON'T KNOW*

How much? $15 / $10 for Body Language Attendees.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
MYRRYRS (PHX): https://soundcloud.com/myrryrs
An American producer raised on house, hip hop and drum and bass, Myrryrs has set each genre and the barriers they create, aside. Rather than drawing influence from the producers of his musical upbringing, Myrryrs peers deep within the happenings of the late 90’s rave scene, sci-fi fantasy, and cult imagery. Fusing bass heavy electronic noise and riveting hooks with seemingly accidental perfection, it’s this mysterious approach that has seen an idea evolve into a powerful force through original releases on Body High, Discobelle Records, and B.yrslf Division.

MAX ULIS (VAN): https://soundcloud.com/maxulis
In Vancouver, there are few artists as well-respected and lauded as Max Ulis. Known for his flawless mixing abilities and breath-taking original productions, Max is a pioneer on the West Coast, pushing his own unique brand of house and techno. He is one of the charter members of the notorious Lighta! crew, which has been instrumental in the building of Vancouver's underground movement for the better part of a decade.

WOODHEAD vs NEIGHBOUR (VAN): https://soundcloud.com/woodhead // https://soundcloud.com/neighbour-homebreakin
In the house and funk realm, these two gentlemen are without parallel, as they are both part of the renowned Homebreakin Crew. Woodhead has a slew of exceptional releases on Homebreakin, Punchout & East Van Digital, that prove he is an ace producer in addition to his already spectacular skills as a DJ, his sets setting him apart from imitators hoping to recreate even a sliver of the magic seen at Shambhala and across the city for years. Neighbour on the other hand is an underground legend. Matt is one funky motherfucker - His live performances leave crowds gobsmacked, combining live instrumentation and peerless mixing skills. He has been creating some of the most inspirational house, techno, funk and disco to come out of the city. This will be a special back to back set.

HXDB vs CURE (VAN): https://soundcloud.com/dj_cure // https://soundcloud.com/hexadecibel
We R cool. We don't like to write about ourselves in the 3rd person. We represent the bleeding edge. We will take you there.

Bodylanguage6-A-WEB.gif

“There is strong shadow where there is much light.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The light of a metropolis emits from the hearts of its denizens, especially in its darker hours. Communities are mosaics of the interwoven intentions and aspirations of individuals, linked to others by collaboration, competition and common purpose. To the untrained ear, the city is a sleeping giant, an idle pharoah. To those who strive to navigate cultural waters by their senses, the city is a debutante, a conflicted youth, a wizened sage, and a streetwise hustler- a seething chorus whispering, muttering, and screaming while it seeks affirmation from and connection to the voices it has learned to hear in the wind.

FB: https://www.facebook.com/events/472898059435036/

Join us for a night of kinetic conversation and be reminded of your eloquent bodies by...

HOOLA

The legend of Hoola is long and storied, and covers a LOT of ground. As an essential member of the Vitamin Tribe in Halifax, he pioneered an era of electronic shows on the east coast. Moving westward, he established World Headquarters in Nelson, the nerve center / record store for the scene that spawned the now legendary Shambhala music festival. Since then, he's curated and produced the Beach Stage / Living Room, an ambience known for its range of styles and depth of vision. Hoola is a major forefather of dance community in Canada, and his DJ sets reflect a wide variety of discerning taste. He's known for his monstrous vinyl collection of rare disco and funk as well as a penchant for futuristic electronic grooves- so basically he'll be right at home at the Beaumont.

https://soundcloud.com/11oola-11oop

314

Sean Plusoneminusone Matwiy and Liam Likemind Joneser have quickly become ambassadors of a fresh style of house music in Vancouver, and for good reason. Diligent educators and diverse selectors, the pair have begun to produce events for Vancouver's dance community, while maintaining focus on their ever-evolving DJ sets. Fusing new 4x4 varietals springing forth from bass producers with the sound of classic house and techno, these two mega-friends are a must-see in 2013.

What happens after someone who has spent years touring the dive bars of North America, sleeping on stranger’s couches, eating cigarettes and coffee for breakfast, honing their bass chops in bands that played everything from punk to jazz? They wise up, step out of the van, take their hard-earned musical lessons and become one of Vancouver’s premier DJs and producers.

Currently Woodhead’s six song ep for Punchout! Records is charting on Beatport’s top 100 Funk/RnB releases.

Check out East Van Digital, Homebreakin Records and E.C.I Korea for more remixes and original tracks.

Big night at Chapel Arts coming up. I'll be supplying the visuals for this slayfest.

VISUALS by ~ LIGHTHEAD

**There will be a super special $OFFICIAL$ afterparty aftwerwards by our friend Cherchez and Sleep Late!!!

Reilly Steel: https://soundcloud.com/reillysteel is a young producer dabbling in the murky undercurrents of house and techno, with his productions tinged with the sensibilities of bass music. Keenly aware of the importance of making his envelope-pushing productions be compatible with dance floors. And, despite his young age, showing a deft understanding and appreciation for old school warehouse sounds. Having previously played in Vancouver last year with Aufect, he quickly became a crowd favourite with his infectious DJ set and innate crowd-rocking skills.

Heartbeat(s): https://soundcloud.com/heartbeat_s is the new alias for ex LOL Boys member Markus Garcia. Having recently relocated from Montreal to Vancouver to take a fresh perspective on life and music. Fans of Aufect and 314 should be no stranger to this man's work - His skill as a producer shining through everything he touches. His new work represents the culmination of his experience and contribution to LOL Boys, with a strong Detroit and Chicago house influence. Now, having planted his roots in our fine city, he is already beginning to make waves with his DJ sets and powerful presence as a musician.

314: https://soundcloud.com/314 These two cats have been steadily impressing and becoming a veritable force in their own right, on the decks and in their own personal productions. They have teamed up with us here at Aufect and we're proud to call these guys our partners in crime. Expect a peerless selection of house, techno and bass music cuts.

**********************THIS JUST IN****************************
*****COMPLIMENTARY CHAMPAGNE AT MIDNIGHT ON US*****

HERE IS SOME MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ALL OF THE TALENTED MUSICIANS ON BOARD AND A FEW LINKS FOR YOU TO CHECK OUT!

GIRAFFE AFTERMATH

Building on the traditions of reggae and dub music, Vancouver's Giraffe Aftermath use hip-hop rhythms and a psychedelic approach to create a unique blend of lively, danceable music. Formed in 2006 by Steve Hackenbruch and Luke de Villiers, this songwriting/production duo remains the core of the band's music. Joined on stage by Paul Steffes and a revolving cast of peripheral players, Giraffe Aftermath throw down a foundation of groove and airtight vocal harmonies.

WOODHEAD

Blurring the lines between house, funky, garage and bass. Woodhead loves to go deep and wide. He is a fixture in the West Coast Bass Music Scene as a DJ and a producer. He is also a resident at Basscoast Project and Shambhala Music Festival. Our Futuristic Fundamental Family is ecstatic about having him on board to drop the headlining set upstairs and throw down a live visual show as his alter ego LIGHTHEAD.

THAT AFRICAN

Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, That African is now a fixture in the Vancouver underground. Coming from a hip hop and trip hop back ground, That African has been involved in music since the age of 16. Expect to hear a repertoire spanning multiple genres (think funk, swing, down-tempo, hip hop, trip hop, sexy lounge, and all manner of bass music) sprinkled with a healthy dose of turntable-ism.

VAN CITY SOUL-HOP COMMITTEE

Expect a melting pot of diverse talent from all walks of life when The Van City Soul Hop Committee hits the stage! This collaborative crew will ignite the room with an earth shattering sound that is all its own! The grooves are geared around HIP HOP/LATIN/GYPSY-JAZZ/FUNK/SOUL/DUB/HOUSE/REGGAE and everything in between! The collective is co-produced and directed by Thomas Workshop and Dasha Chel (who come together to bridge the gap between world music and Jazzy Hip Hop). Tribal percussion and BIG Bass-lines are always on the menu! You can also be sure that there will be a barrage of surprise guests and featured musicians being called up to rip it at one point or another.

ONE KINGDOM (featuring Reid Hendry from Watasun)

What happens when you combine the charismatic, diverse energy of Jeff Child with the smooth, rolling thunder of Jesse Bentley? You get a soothing, dance-able, head nodding, reggae tinged, feel good vibration that sets the room on fire and puts a smile on your face. Jeff and Jesse have been locking into grooves with one another since they were teenagers and when they play together it is always evident! Both of them collaborate with a plethora of other live musicians in Vancouver (including Watasun and The Van City Soul-Hop Committee). They have both earned recognition as desirable session players around town, but when they play together and focus on their original material..... they become ONE KINGDOM. Their New Years set at The Soul-Hop-Alypse will include appearances by Percussion guru Reid Hendry and the versatile band leader from Giraffe Aftermath, Luke De Villiers. Together, these four talented gentlemen are going to open a can of Whoop Ass on the dance floor! ;)

THOMAS WORKSHOP

Get ready to have a tribal fire lit under your feet. Thomas Workshop specializes in aquatic, tribal, latin influenced, space-e, bass fueled House Music and Multidimensional Break-Beats. Whether it be straight up old school Hip Hop, Tripped out middle school Trip Hop or All STYLES of Uptempo Goodness.... He is guaranteed to please. He is a master at his craft and is one of the only cats around who still ONLY PLAYS VINYL. Thomas brings a unique blend of organic flavor to the table and is always excited to tell you a story when he gets on the decks and lets his taste in music do the talking...

HAYZE

Hayze has been entrenched in music since he was 10 years old. He started with a guitar and before he knew it, he found himself scratching on turntables and knew right away that he had found his calling. He realized right away that he needed to be impeccable with his mixing as well as his scratches if he was going to start turning heads.... He started mixing Latin House, Funky Breaks and all sorts of soulful electronic in to his sets. Hayze incorporates a tasteful balance of turntable-ism in to his sets and always moves the dance floor in the right way with a balanced attack that is all his own.

BLENDA

Inspired by & drawn to the west coast bass style; DJ Blenda fuses her love of hip-hop flavour & booty shaken beats into her sets. From bouncy house, hip-hop and reggae to deep and dark sounds - her goal is to make your body move.

FRESHLEECUT

Freshleecut has been DJing at live music events in Vancouver for more than ten years. He is comfortable spinning a wide range of music - from punk and reggae to drum n bass and hip-hop - depending on what the event calls for. In addition to dozens of smaller club shows, Freshleecut has played several noteworthy gigs including the Barrington Levy after party at the Victoria Ska Festival, the premiere of the documentary Meditate and Destroy, and NYE shows at Malone's and the WISE Hall.

For NYE 2012 Freshleecut will be dusting off CLASSIC hip-hop, soul and reggae PARTY ANTHEMS to keep the dance floor moving in between bands in the live room (main floor)!

STAY IN TOUCH WITH THIS EVENT PAGE FOR MORE DETAILS, TICKET UPDATES (because we will sell out, it's just a matter of when ;) and special announcements regarding the main event!

Tell the WORLD!! This party is a hot commodity for a number of reasons :)

It marks the launch of what will be a series of 2 ROOM parties at The Backstage Lounge with the Futuristic Fundamental Production Team. Live Bands on the main floor and electronic DJ's/producers on the top floor! A lot of people don't even know about the 2nd floor/room because it doesn't get used in this capacity very often.... Come get familiar with us this NYE :)
