Prohibition-NYE-2014-2.png

I'll be playing music from 11-12am. It's such an honor for me to be a part of this with one of the best couple of crews in the city. info: http://prohibitionsnye.blogspot.ca/

"WE, the Sasspots, WE who live beneath this shiny new city of ports and shores, between these streetlights and steel-interrupted sunsets.... WE, in the shadows of this retracting spaceship landscape... WE of these tall jags of high cement towers and bottomless pits, the digging of which rattle our spines and hearts.... WE of the cracks and crevices between the swept streets and the empty recycle bin promises... WE of the dim lights and glittering eyes and low sounds... WE, who see and hunt and live for the simplest of beauties – WE, the Sasspots, do declare a very necessary night of wild abandon FREE of prying eyes."

JOIN US as we step through mineshafts into the caves of the deep city belly... delving low and far enough that we unlock the spirits of the UNDERGROUNDS PAST. Gold rush miners, can can girls, and SALOON courtesans; flappers, dames and SPEAK-EASY mobsters; travelling CIRCUS performers and luscious OPIUM DEN velvets; rowdy and vivacious off-duty tradesmen, sailors and steam workers; golden era BACKLOT starlet-wannabes, vintage pin-up centrefolds, and of course, BURLESQUE STRIPTEASERS.

They always knew how to have the most fun. And it almost always had to be in secret.

Let's remember together. Doors at 10pm... we go LATE.

cosmic-xmas-party-2013-woodhead-update.jpg

This party is to raise money for the Empty Stocking Fund. Lets get cosmic at the planetarium.

THIS IS A COSMIC ANNOUNCEMENT
Hi everyone! The Cosmic Christmas Party is just around the corner, and we are really stoked by the response so far. Before the night is upon us there are a few things we would like to remind everyone of that will help take it from a killer party to an event of cosmic proportions! Perhaps even more important than having a very nice time, this event is in support of a very worthwhile cause. This year marks the the 95th anniversary of the Province's Empty Stocking Fund, a charity that has been helping families and other Vancouverites in need during the holiday season. Let's do this!! And make it their best year ever! In order to do this please remember to bring $20 or an unwrapped gift (kids 6 months-16 years) for donation upon arrival. As well we are having a raffle featuring awesome prizes generously donated by our good friends at Endeavor, Cottonmouth, Inner Space Yoga, Pizza Carano, Menu Skate Shop, Airhole, Red Dragon Apparel, Lords of Gastown, Daybreak Spa and Pender Harbour Resort. We want to say thanks for all of the support we have received so far, and still welcome prize donations. Let's do it for the kids! Now... TO THE MOON! -Greg

Tales-Of-Us-Electric-Owl-Dec-13-2.jpg

I'll be performing visuals this Friday night at The Electric Owl.

Intimate Productions and Rhombus proudly present...

★ Tale Of Us (Life and Death, Visionquest, Kompakt, M-nus) ★
http://www.intimateproductions.com/djs/Tale_Of_Us

w/ STEFAN Z, OLIVER NICKELS + K.A.S.H

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

_____________________________________

All good music should tell a story. Tales of experience. Tales of joy. Tales of love lost and won. A Tale of Us.

Tale of Us are Berlin-based DJ and production partnership Karm and Matteo who are currently re-writing the rulebook for deeply moving, emotional electronic music. Together they share a sonic vision that pulls together elements of house and techno with influences from pop, nu-disco and even rock music. While all of their productions are instantly recognisable as Tale Of Us, these range from straight-up dance floor jams to low-slung ambient tracks and more abstract compositions. Already regular fixtures at clubs like Watergate and Weekend in Berlin, Tenax in Florence, Barraca In Valencia and DC10 in Ibiza they have grown up throwing secret loft parties called ‘Just This’, in their hometown of Milan. While both originally hail from North America, Karm was born in Toronto and Matteo in New York, they moved to Italy as children, which is where they met and formed the close working bond that they now share.

At present they are based in Berlin, an inspirational frontier, which has given them numerous opportunities to build relationships with fellow musicians who share their unique musical outlook. At the forefront of these like-minded visionaries are Seth Troxler, Shaun Reeves, Ryan Crosson and Lee Curtiss, who have been passionate supporters of Tale of Us since they first heard their music; so much so that they released Tale Of Us’ debut EP release on their new ‘Visionquest’ label this spring.

Prior to this, Karm and Matteo had already released tracks on labels such as 'Barraca Music' and 'Life & Death' and had put out various remix collaborations with fellow 'Visionquest' label mates Shaun Reeves & Ryan Crosson. In particular the Tale Of Us remix of Thugfucker ‘Disco Gnome’ on 'Life and Death' was hailed by Mixmag as one best records of 2010. Their next remix on the horizon sees the duo try their hand at something totally different, with a standout remix of a track from the upcoming album of the rock band 'Who Made Who' which fuses together both rock and techno, managing to create something incredibly raw and poignant.

Upcoming events will see them perform both live & DJ sets at locations around the world including the Visionquest showcase at the Shelborne in Miami during WMC, the Detroit Movement Festival (DEMF) and Sonar in Barcelona. They are also booked to play at Klubber's Day in Madrid, Fiesta Privada in Rome, Elita Festival in Milan and many other quality venues throughout Europe.

The story continues…

Things are going to be heating up inside Beaumont Saturday night.

"Sly ol' winter may be fixin' to cool things off around these parts, but these two-steppin' youngsters in Vancouver ain't no shut-ins. And ya gotta admit there's somethin' special about number 10. Sorta what I might call a milestone, ya hear? A one 'n a zero. Binary typa shit." - Sheldrick Mancrake

BODY LANGUAGE X
Beaumont Studios 316 W 5th

featuring

Isis Graham

I heard more than one industry heavyweight tell me that she easily had their favourite set at Bass Coast. I could only agree. Our super-pal "Ice" is one of Calgary's finest DJ / producers, a singer / songwriter, promoter, and on top of it all, still finds time to be a tireless supporter for her musical friends. Currently she holds a residency at Habitat Living Sound, where her Friday party Nu*Movement has become their flagship night. Her style behind the decks is irresistibly smooth and musical. Usually she's mixing up chicago-style classics with new heat, finding a great balance between deep hypnotic grooves and in-your-face funk business. Her album "In the Garden" is a moody downtempo exploration and is a must-listen for rainy Vancity afternoons. Do yourself a favour and like / follow / buy here...

Bikes - https://soundcloud.com/bikesmusic

With a background in beatmaking and live music, it wasn't until his introduction to house music in 2010 that BIKES came into his own. Always placing the vibe above everything else, his sets tend to run the gamut of house, with a sprinkling of nu disco, while his productions showcase a knack for soulful sample selections. Expect big bass lines, driving percussive rhythms and the ability to deliver exactly what the dance floor needs no matter what time of night, or morning, it is.

Dice at Electric Owl poster.jpg

Tonight we invite you to roll the Dice at Electric Owl. I'll be joining Scotty, Dunks and Smoothie on the decks. Always fun at Electric Owl.

So last year right around this time we started a weekly night in the Waldorf Tiki Bar called DICE Thursdays and I have to say it was really damn good! Unfortunately the Waldorf Productions was forced to close their doors and our night came to an end but this Friday we are bringin it back for a 1 off at the Electric Owl!

If you like good people, better times and the sounds of Darren Woodhead, Dj Smoothie, & Myself, then I suggest you roll on down and have a boogie with us - Dunks

Woodhead-RuddyDuck-Nov30-13.jpg

Making the drive up to Squamish to hang out and play music with some super great people.
Time to get Ruddy!

We are super excited to have Woodhead play the little room!

Vancouver's Darren Woodhead is a West Coast institution. Having cut his teeth touring Western Canada and the States with punk bands, he picked up DJing from one of his band mates. 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 defunkt 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.

After establishing a name for himself throughout the Kootenay region, he has relocated to Vancouver, earning brownie points with his girlfriend and expanding on his musical endevours.

2012 saw Ryan Wells launch a podcast series in conjunction with Slowdjs entitled “The Slowcast”, a series showcasing talented & influential west coast producers & musicians. It also saw music releases on East Van Digital, a featured mix for Dub Selekta and multiple festival performances including Shambhala Music Festival.

With sets ranging from house, techno & bass music - one thing is for sure: Ryan Wells always proves to bring out big smiles & warm vibes. His keen sense for forward thinking music is also reaching his production game with original songs earning BBC Radio 1 plays (“Dimes” & “Splash”).

In the past few years Ryan Wells has shared the stage with some of his musical inspirations including: Justin Martin, Kastle, Soul Clap, Jacques Greene, Christian Martin, Smalltown Djs & HUMANS.

He has been producing in the studio as well, having some great remixes and originals on scene stalwarts Homebreakin' 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 rave 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 on Punchout! Recordings this fall as well as a new album from S2 collaboration Clyphs, this July on Homebreakin Records.

Mark-Farina-Imperial-2-lighthead-visuals.jpg

Lighting and visuals for legends tonight!
Nordic Trax Presents:

MARK FARINA
[Great Lakes Audio, San Francisco]

Modern day record minstrel, Mark Farina, has thrilled crowds globally, entertaining over 1 million fans per year. As one of the most ubiquitous DJs in Dance Music, Farina’s known for both his unique style of mixing Jazz, Downtempo and House Music as well as being the creator of Mushroom Jazz: West Coast jazzy, organic productions combined with East Coast Hip-Hop, Urban beats.

Drawing from his vibrant youth, which included being a trumpet player in marching band, a drummer in a nu wave cover band and a guest DJ, Friday nights on WNUR(Chicago), Mark found his passion for the luscious world of vinyl, turntables and nightclubs. At 16, Farina began his DJ career as a resident at Chicago’s underage mecca, Medusa’s. At the same time Mark joined forces with emerging DJs Derrick Carter and Chris Nazuka then moved into a loft space called Rednail. Rednail became infamous not only for raucous parties but also as the home to the trio’s first productions under the moniker, Symbols & Instruments. Their release,”MOOD,” sold 35,000 copies in the US & UK and is credited as “the first ambient house track.”

Farina relocated to San Francisco in 1992. Fans embraced Mark’s downtempo style and he started co-hosting a weekly Mushroom Jazz club night in ?93. In 3 short years, Farina established a fanatical, cult-like following for his Mushroom Jazz sound and in 1996, OM Records released the first mixed comp CD, simply titled, Mushroom Jazz. Since then, Mark has released 7 volumes of Mushroom Jazz with 2013 marking the 20th anniversary of the series. Other notable releases include OM's Seasons, San Francisco Sessions Vol. 1, Connect, House of Om, Live in Tokyo, and Fabric 40.

When Mark’s not touring the world, headlining festivals including Harbourlife (Sydney), Southport Weekender (UK), DEMF (Detroit), Coachella (CA) and T in the Park (Scotland), you’re likely to find him in his studio working on new releases or podcasts for his label, Great Lakes Audio. On days off he’ll be cruising his ’68 Toronado with his son, Dylan (aka “little peanut”), and his Yorkie, Pumpkin.

Voted as one of the top DJ’s in the world by URB, MUZIK and BPM magazines, Mark Farina’s taste making skills continue to turn the heads of seasoned Dance Music veterans as well as newcomers to the scene.

It's that time of year again. It's your opportunity to shake away your pre-winter blues and boogie down to celebrate some of your favourite mid-November birthday buds. Brenda, Terence and Shannon's birthday trifecta super-jam!

This isn't any regular old trifecta super-jam. NO. This is a super-jam with a philanthropic twist!

We will be donating all of the ticket sales from the party to Charity:Water, an incredible charity that is focused on brining safe accessible drinking water to people around the world. Check out their website: www.charitywater.org

So, not only will your party ticket get you a fabulous night of super-grooves from DjWood& DjSoo, Woodhead, Sam Demoe, Blenda & Memio, and the weird and wonderful MC ThinkTank, it will also be donated to this amazing cause.

Look at you! Partying in the name of clean water.

Visuals provided by Lighthead Visuals. Tickets in advance by donation - suggested $30, or what you can afford. Or you can donate directly on the charity:water website to brenda's birthday campaign, just bring a print-out of your donation for entry.

_____________________________________

Guy Gerber has always been comfortable as an outsider. From being the rock kid at the rave, to the Israeli DJ on the European club circuit, to the electronic producer with a fetish for live instruments, he tends to skirt the edge of whatever scene he's in. It's a position that suits him well-so far it has led to dozens of lush, melodic records, an ever- evolving live act and his own label, Supplement Facts. This nonconformist attitude, combined with the emotional content of his art (so rare in today's electronic music), explains how Gerber keeps his audience locked in, be it on record or on stage.

Before he was fiddling with drum machines and synths, Gerber was all about groups like Joy Division and My Bloody Valentine. These influences still echo clearly in his music today, especially in his use of harmony, contemplative moods and trippy, shoegaze- inspired sounds. It's a style that's anything but conventional, yet one that quickly drew in some of Europe's most popular labels; three years after his recording debut, Gerber released the first of several records on John Digweed's Bedrock imprint. A couple of years later, Sven Väth signed him to Cocoon, eventually releasing his album Late Bloomers. All the while, he was building Supplement Facts from the ground up, showcasing his own productions alongside those by likeminded artists, and illustrating each record sleeve by hand, so each release embodied his distinct creative panache.

These days Gerber has the kind of artistic freedom he's always wanted, and it shows. Supplement Facts is more adventurous than ever, melding organic with electronic sounds. Meanwhile, he's embarked on his most unexpected project yet: an album with P Diddy, who hired him for some remixes and took him on more permanently after hearing the results. Now the hip-hop icon flies Gerber out to his studio in LA to work, where he gives him “2000% artistic freedom." The experience has been transformative. ”Something opened my mind out there," says Gerber, noting how his approach to music has changed. For one, his rock roots are seeping back in; despite being named one of RA's top 10 acts of the year, he's scrapping his laptop for something more “live,” playing bass guitar over drum machines, and remembering the importance of lyrics. It's impossible to say where all of this is headed, but with a talent as bold and unorthodox as Gerber's, it couldn't happen any other way.

Electric Owl presents:

EVERYTHINGS FINE FRIDAYS

w/

DUBCONSCIOUS + Woodhead + Killing Time

Dubconscious has come to represent both the east & the western coast of Canada. Born & raised in the Toronto area, he attended University in Victoria before spending 2 years in Nelson BC, snowboarding in the winters & working for the talent department at Shambhala Music Festival - a role that has developed into the title of Entertainment & Social Coordinator. He's also become a resident of the Living Room Beach Stage over the past 4 years, also performing on the Village Stage 3 of those years.
Having recently made the move to East Vancouver, this seasoned selector brings a plethora of fresh flavors to the table – heavy basslines mashed up with a roots reggae infusion, funky bashment vibes, bassy house, future jams, classic hip hop & trip hop, with a dash of turntablism.

ANDY CLOCKWORK vs. PATRICK KELLY

Gigamesh is the stage name of Matt Masurka, an American multi-platinum selling music producer and DJ. His numerous remixes and two EPs have earned him a swiftly building reputation as one of the most versatile and consistent names in indie-dance music.

Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, it’s no surprise Gigamesh has developed a keen taste for funk, disco and pop. The sound is immediately recognizable in much of his music, however he maintains a flexible aesthetic. Gigamesh is an ardent fan of minimalist concert music, film scores, classic rock, italo disco, French house, Miami bass, and genre-bending electronic music. These elements have all combined to forge his all-inclusive approach to music appreciation and creation.

Gigamesh first gained exposure on music blogs for bootleg reworks of pop hits from Michael Jackson, New Order, The Clash, Stardust and dozens more. He went on to produce a #6 Billboard Single (also iTunes 2010 Pop Single Of The Year) and very well-received remixes for Foster The People, Two Door Cinema Club, Katy B, Theophilus London, Citizens, Grouplove and more. Now a multi-platinum selling producer and frequent member of The Hype Machine's popular chart #1 spot, Gigamesh has firmly established himself as a respected trendsetter in modern dance music.

In October 2011, Gigamesh released his debut self-titled EP on Our Label International, which received wide acclaim in the disco and indie-dance community. Following his debut, Gigamesh began to develop a close relationship with French record label Kitsuné resulting in an invitation to perform on their highly-anticipated U.S. Club Night tour and the release of the “All My Life” EP by Kitsuné in May of 2012. In support of this EP Gigamesh has been touring the globe, including Asia, Australia, North America, and UK/Europe.

Gigamesh continues to gain recognition as one of the top producers of modern dance music going in to 2013. With no time to waste, Gigamesh is starting off the year by releasing a new single, 'Enjoy.' 'Enjoy' features a remix by Oliver and will be out on NYC's fresh house label - Nurvous Records (Feb. 12th).
