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.

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.

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



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.

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 ***

Intimate Productions proudly presents

★ JUSTIN MARTIN [dirtybird, San Francisco] ★

w/ Abasi + Ryan Wells

& Woodhead, Spilt Milk + Fedski in second room

Come get spotted.

@ Electric Owl Social Club : 928 Main Street []


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.

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.
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


How much? $15 / $10 for Body Language Attendees.
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.

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.

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): //
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.

“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.


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


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.


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.

with support from our residents…

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

When?: Friday, January, 18th, 2013
Where?: Chapel Arts Studio
Who?: Reilly Steel (Senseless, Top Billin), Heartbeat(s) (FoF Music, Palms Out), 314

$15 at the door

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

Reilly Steel: 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): 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: 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****************************



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.


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.


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.


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! ;)


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 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.


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 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 :)

Get-The-Funk-Out-FNF-last night.jpg

I'm on opening duties &i'm bringing a pile of 45s.

It's The End Of The World As We Know It And I Feel FUNKY!

Oceans arising, pyramids aligning, weed's legaller over the border ... Maybe the Mayans were on to something? Scroll down and check out this Interstellar Lineup below.

This Winter Solstice climb aboard the Mothership one last time as Van City's best and only no CD/no mp3 Funk Night Blasts Off for a Vinyl Voyage.

Since liftoff 3 years ago FNF has always been a labour of love. To be honest these trips never earned a single cubit -- Just because you got wings don't mean you can fly, baby. So with that in mind the more invites and attendings i see happening the cheaper this last Fever will be. I reckon tix will be $5 all night to a maximum of $8 depending on your hype. Same goes for an after party *)

So this is it. Final mission, Vangroovers. The Mayans are sayin' it's time to reinvent the wheel, the Colonel's taking the Solstice Gate back to Shuswap Quadrant and you don't have to leave the galaxy but you can't stay here. So Get The Funk Out!

The Librarian:
Self Evident:

Self Evident is one of the most enigmatic figures in Canadian EDM. One of the most diverse and prolific Vancouver artists and member of Vancouver's Lighta! crew, with a sound that is almost instantly recognizable as "Self Evident" and nothing else. With superhuman DJ skills to back up his exciting productions, his sets are often buzzed about for months after.
The Librarian is a name on the lips on many elated festival-goers on the West Coast. She is a co-founder and organizer of the Bass Coast Project, which has oft been compared to the larger, Shambhala, for its incredibly high level of production and meticulously curated lineup. Not only that but Andrea has become one of the most revered bass music DJs in Western Canada, stylishly exploring the entire post-dubstep spectrum, her sets too becoming some of the most buzzed about moments of festival season.


A couple of the best party-rocking underground DJs in the city, thrilling crowds with their bleeding-edge, diverse musical styling. Cure, besides being a member of Lighta! is best known as the founder of the innovative record label, Aufect Recordings, which has been responsible for releasing music by Canadian mainstays XI, Bombaman and Mark Instinct. HxdB, was later brought onboard to help build the Aufect brand through events co-ordination and A&R. HxdB himself has, in a short time, gained international recognition through his original music productions, collaborations and slick remixes, finding their way into the sets of some of the biggest named DJs in the world, frequently heard on BBC 1Xtra & Rinse FM. Also, releasing music on a number of critically acclaimed record labels as wide ranging as Tectonic, Palms Out & Brownswood. ++Props to HxdB and Cure for helping shape this year's Holiday Hustle!

Expendable Youth:

Besides helping hold down one of Vancouver’s consistent bass music weeklies, Faded, these guys have individually gained quite a global following, respectively. Expendable Youth has enjoyed success by releasing on Diplo's Mad Decent sister label, Jefferies, with their unique blend of club-ready sounds of varying flavours. In addition, Matt works with one of the most active promoters of EDM in Vancouver, helping on some of the largest events in the city.
Krusha, is no newcomer either, coming from a rich background in Drum & Bass with a handful of notable 12" releases on D&B mainstays Barcode, Human Imprint and Obscene. He is also a veteran DJ unafraid to experiment with different sounds, combining his love for Jungle, with more modern takes on the electronic spectrum to create a fresh perspective but always maintaining the dance-floor satisfaction in his productions.

MC Thinktank:

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. Thinktank, his compatriot, is regarded by many as one of the most versatile MCs in Canada, equally at ease on stage beside Hip Hop legends or any manner of EDM show. Having recorded with Nu-Funk legends All Good Funk Alliance and Vancouver's own emperor of Funk, Neighbour, Devon proves he is no one trick pony, rather a well-rounded musician that can lay down in the studio or on stage.


Two more names that will almost certainly be known to local EDM fans. As one of the founding members of Vancouver's pre-eminent Drum & Bass crew, SHAHdjs, Willisist has been instrumental in the continual success and appreciation of the sound in Vancouver. Successfully bringing heavy-hitters in electronic music for 5 straight years and deservedly earning a reputation as one of the most honest and reliable players in the city. He also capably handles any size crowd with his razor sharp DJ skills.
Dubconscious on the other hand has spent the last several years of his life, travelling coast to coast across Canada making his presence known in every city he touches down in. A true master of the craft, his DJ sets are flawlessly mixed and exceptionally diverse, which has raised his profile locally and works a broad range of bills.

Cherchez La Femme:

One of the busiest figures in Vancouver's frantic nightlife scene. Cherchez is hard to keep track of, not because she's particularly elusive, but because she is busy creating vibes at many of the city's venues either with her music or art shows. She has been responsible for bringing so many incredibly talented individuals to the city of just about every imaginable sound, from Hip Hop, to Indie, to Metal, to EDM, she is one of Vancouver's most forward-edge curators. This spirit of adventure follows her into her DJ sets, where fans can expect to not know what to expect, instead relying on on her innate musical understanding to assure rad times for all.


Mandai is proud to represent as one of the Lighta! crew, blending dancehall classics with newer gems and throwing down dub plates acquired during trips to Jamaica. Originally inspired by her travels in Africa and then by the underground dancehall scene in Vancouver, she stays loyal to the island vibes. She has performed at Bass Coast, Shambhala, is a regular at the infamous Thursday Ting, and many events..


DRUGZNDREAMZ is a Audio/visual collective from Vancouver, Canada. Their live show has been called a Dubadelic trip; A visionary quest of sound and light. The band consists of musicians Marc Nyiti, Eric J. Breitenbach, The Magician and visual/projection artist Stuart Ward. DRUGZNDREAMZ burst on the scene in 2011 and performed support slots at sold out shows with international acts such as Dirtyphonics and Crystal Method. 2012 saw the band headline such festivals as Diversity and Carrington Bay.


\//\|\|D=††/\S are an indie-pop trip-hop band from Vancouver, BC. Formed in 2011, by Killawatt recording artist Heatwave, DirtyRadio bass player and co-songwriter Dwight James Abell, and DRUGZNDREAMZ band member and producer Eric J. Breitenbach. Check out their songs 'Feel At Home' & 'The Truth' and see them live. Debut album coming early 2013!

Andrew Van Hassel:

What we know is that Andrew's music is shockingly tasteful and filled with all kinds of delicious emotions. Opting to use mostly analogue gear in his productions, he actually shares the same air in the living room with his roommate, Longwalkshortdock. He combines his love of live performance with his own elegant productions to create an entertaining and engaging experience, executing his deep knowledge of music and wizardry of synth manipulation on stage. Creating a soulful blend of techno and house aesthetics with soaring textural melodies, and glistening synth leads, often featuring his own vocals.

Frank Grimes:

In addition to being one of the most exciting young tattoo artists in the city, this guy is also rapidly becoming renowned for his chops as a producer. Combining the best elements of 90s R&B, modern electronic music and a ghetto aesthetic that is undeniably fun. He has released music on Canada’s Aufect Recordings and Crude that demonstrate his unique style perfectly. Frank takes it one step further with his DJ sets by fusing his love of hip hop and R&B with his own original productions and other exciting, bleeding-edge club tunes.


Relative newcomers 314 have not wasted any time in making an impression on Vancouver. Sean and Liam have already been hard at work hosting events in conjunction with Aufect, and honing their skills behind the decks. They seamlessly combine house, techno and all manner of the aptly ambiguous "post-whatever" realm of sound.


Originally hailing from Nelson, BC, Hilary now calls Vancouver her home. An experienced DJ that manages to keep crowds thoroughly enthralled with her unique mixes and forward-thinking sounds. She blends all manner of bass music in her energetic sets, leaving the unprepared begging for more.

In a modern global context, dance has served to provide a respite from the pressures of city living and as a vehicle for cultural self-awareness. The fragmented nature of our socio-technological framework allows us the privilege of sampling many forms, while making meaningful connection to specific histories more difficult. In a visceral way, our urban spaces and planning define our physical expression, in turn dictating our patterns of understanding. Through ritual movement, we can examine the relationship between community, culture, and the spaces we inhabit.

Tanner Ross | Bio

The one constant throughout the life of Tanner Ross is music, since being raised in New Jersey in a family environment heavily influenced by music new and old, to his current status as a passionate and driven DJ and producer. In High School he found himself in numerous bands playing everything from funk to punk but it was after progressing to study synthesizers and production at Boston’s renowned Berklee College Of Music that things fell into place. Captivated by underground electronic music, his own productions were soon being released on labels such as Dirty Bird, Freerange, Airdrop and Culprit and this naturally led him into DJing, where he met now regular collaborators Soul Clap, and his journey became clear.

Fresh out of college, with various musical projects, Tanner set out on a musical mission across the US and beyond, to such meccas of dance music as London's Fabric, and Berlin's Watergate.. With his eyes wide open and finger on the pulse he was soon forming part of a Boston super group SECT alongside Soul Clap. Not only is the super group's album a near and anticipated prospect, Tanner’s solo career is taking off with releases due in early 2011 on !K7, Double Standard, No 19, and the biggest coup of them all, a solo album is in the works, to be released later this year on none other than Wolf + Lamb. It’s quite clear Tanner’s musical trail blazing is set to continue much further…


Wax Romeo (Calgary, Homebreakin') | Bio

Wax Romeo is undoubtedly the world's greatest lover, but when he's done blowing kisses at the mirror, he can be found tinkering away with knobs and buttons in his studio. His father, a well-dressed thief, known for carrying a cache of weapons inside a steel drum, taught Romeo about marauding and defrauding at a very early age. Since then, he's fleeced more fools than The North Face, stealing whatever he can, including the Golden Titty, which belonged to the dangerous Jamaican "Blouse an' Skirt Posse". When he's not writing self-congratulatory bio's, eating sheppard's pie, or lobbing empties, Wax Romeo defiles dance floors Calgary's Hifi Club and Marquee Room. Though he was hatched from a queer disco egg fertilized by the manic seed of a jheri-curled 80's R&B drummer, house and techno taught him how to bend the law as a teenager. If your party needs some step, he'll get here quick, driving his empty brown limousine in the carpool lane. Expect a goddamn mess, but watch your damn moneymaker, because Romeo roles dimes...

I'll be shining the visuals this Friday.***DOORS AT 11:30***

Aufect Presents together with 314 are very excited to bring to Canada for the very first time, the one, the only... Wheez-ie!!

Hailing from the heartland of crunk and dirty south, Wheez-ie aka Matt Mauldin has been on a steady rise in the underground bass music scene since his first release dropped on Well Rounded Individuals back in 2011.

His productions blend the sounds of juke and footwork, with his hometown influenced ghetto-aesthetic and a healthy respect for the old school rave. Combining perfect amounts of chest-caving subs, cheeky vocal sampling and innovative synthesizer use. Being a recent graduate of Berklee Music School you can hear the quality oozing from every facet of his productions. He seems to have an inherent midas touch that give his music a certain je ne sais quoi, that is equal parts club friendly and intellectual.

Now, with some serious weight behind his catalogue, on some of the scene's most revered labels like Frite Nite, Embassy, Freshmore and Grizzly, and arguably one of last year's biggest anthems in 'Barefoot Billy' there seems to be no stopping Matt from certain world domination.

Join us would you, for a night of forward thinking dance music, with some of favourite locals supporting. We promise stirling vibes, cheap dranks, and the best damn music. Pushing forward to bridge the gaps and bring to Vancouver the finest artists from around the globe.

~FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16th, 2012~
LOCATION: That Place
TIME: 11:30 PM

* WHEEZ-IE (Frite Nite, Embassy, Grizzly, Well Rounded, Freshmore) - HOUSTON, USA

Local support from:

* HxdB (Aufect, Tectonic, Sounds of Sumo, Palms Out)

* Cure (Aufect, Lighta!, Really Good)

* 314
