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! ;)

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.

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 :)
