It's been a roller coaster of a journey, but finally we have arrived!! The Beaumont Studios has doubled in total size, tripled in radness, and quadrupled the available dance floor space. We're installing a $80k sound system in the ceiling of the event space, creating a cardioid array of thumping hi-def subwoofers, and state-of-the-art lighting / visuals setup. 326 W 5th Ave is HERE!

In honour of our big-tent philosophy and radically inclusive mandate, we've reached out to new quadrants of our epic dance music community for talent and inspiration. All we need is YOU to make our coming-out party special, and to re-establish our little shindig as one of the must-attend regular parties in Vancouver.

featuring your selectors :

Dunks (Funk Hunters, Westwood Recordings)

There's no denying the force of Dunks. As a founding member of The Funk Hunters and one of the West Coast's most in-demand DJs, he's provided eclectic sets ranging from the smokiest hiphop to the most up-front funk and house grooves. You can expect a different approach this time as our man explores the four-on-the-floor lexicon and makes his Body Language debut.

listen : https://soundcloud.com/dunks

Tyler Lewis

DJ / Producer / Musician Tyler Lewis has been established in the Vancouver House Music scene since the late 90's. While using the past 15 years to experiment with the many styles that make up the electronic musical spectrum, Tyler has come to embrace the deeper sounds of House and Techno. His recent productions reflect this sensibility as he prepares to launch a live set consisting of his yet to be released catalogue of original music. Look forward to old school "Late House" baselines, garage shuffle and warm melodies.

Intimate Productions presents Legendary Long Weekend :: #VictoriaDayBash At The Waldorf | Sunday May 17th

May long weekend, Victoria Day. The celebration of our royalty. Whether you care or not, you get Monday off and we have a party; and a great party at that, with not one but three rooms of killer music at the fabulous Waldorf. Who is playing you ask? How about Fred Falke (France), WMNSTUDIES, Bokeh, Kalibo, the SHAHdjs crew and more! So whether you've ever seen a diamond in the flesh or cut your teeth on wedding rings in the movies or not, you should come party with us at LLW!

About Fred Falke

French disco-house producer Fred Falke first rose to prominence by collaborating with Stardust co-producer Alan Braxe on a series of 12"s on the Vulture Music and Kitsuné labels, most notably the synth pop-inspired 2003 hit "Rubicon." These tracks were collected on Braxe's 2005 compilation The Upper Cuts. The duo became in-demand remixers, completing mixes for Death from Above 1979, Kelis, Goldfrapp, Röyksopp, Justice, and many others, until ending their partnership in 2008. Falke also began working with German house producer Kris Menace, remixing his 2004 single "Missile Test" (as part of duo Menace & Adam) and guesting on his 2006 single "Fairlight." Falke released a few solo singles and EPs, starting with 2006's "Omega Man," and most of these tracks were collected on his 2011 full-length Part IV, released by Kris Menace's Work It Baby imprint. Falke has been far more prolific as a remixer and producer than a solo artist, adding smooth disco guitar and electro-house beats to tracks by a variety of pop, rock, R&B, and dance artists ranging from Hot Chip and VHS or Beta to Ke$ha, Sia, Katy Perry, and Lana Del Rey. He has also co-written and produced songs for several British pop stars, including Ellie Goulding, Florrie, and Will Young.

Get your soft opening down here tonight to check out the all new Beaumont. We're super excited about the possibilities of the new space!

The expansion of the new Beaumont Studios at 326 W 5th has been such an inspiring project to watch unfold. We've all been hustling around the clock to renovate the physical space and also to reinvent the horizons of the studio as a creative home for new artist-tenants, event production clients, and the public at large. With the construction phase nearly out of the way, it's time for us to invite our friends and family to come and imbue the new dance floor with some energy - and to give our hard-working staff and management a chance to blow off some steam and have some fun.

We've decided to do a small prelaunch for our friends to come in and see what's been done so far. Entry is by donation (suggested $20.00) but everyone will be welcomed with open arms regardless.

Neighbour, Howl Sound, Steve TCI and Woodhead will be playing music on a stripped-back version of the upcoming sound installation ($80,000 suspended PA rig), and we will be enjoying some lovely libations from the Beaumont's new Bar / Kitchen facilities.

If you get this invitation, it means we love ya and want ya here. We will be keeping it tight lipped, so only bring your closest friends and lets get a dance on while the space is still a virgin."

Tonight we're going to try to beat match two rooms of music at VAL

My set is a 2am

"Lets try something new.

Application Audio, in collaboration with Vancouver Art and Leisure presents...
★ Kitchen Sync ★
A new sound+art project by Application Audio

Application Audio, the Westcoast's leading supplier of dank sound, has come up with this crazy idea of synching two rooms together in an inception level brain loop of follow the leader. Thankfully we know a tonne of dj's that just might have the skills to make it work.... Check it:

There will be 2 rooms isolated from each other with a dj in each room. Each DJ has a stereo feed from the other room and the goal is to keep their set in time and on beat to the other room.
The DJ will be able to monitor the other room via one stereo channel of his/her mixer. The audience will not hear that channel unless the DJ decides to bring that feed in to the mix. The DJs need to work together to keep their sets sync'd to each other. Their music might be completely free of elements from the other room, or it might constitute a blend of elements from the other room. Essentially the audience will experience a synchronized blend of environments while transitioning from room to room or standing in the threshold of both rooms.

The sound systems are physically the same distance from the shared entrance, so the physical delays will match in the area that both systems are heard, meaning that for once that area will sound really cool. (which is where i would want to be all night)

We will set tempo rules and time lines for both rooms to simplify the execution of this concept.

Superstar lineup to be announced as the show approaches

We are expecting some of the biggest local names to join this experiment!

To participate:
Please send a PM with your information and any time restrictions that you may have to Jules Atkinson, and she will coordinate with Darby (Application Audio's Lead Director) to organize set times.
Please include your lowest and highest BPM range to properly match you to a DJ in the other room.

This is going to be an very experimental evening. Cover will be a sliding scale. Just like the BPM's we will be matching your cover charge to you.

Cover charge goes towards Application Audio to help it to continue to subsidize alternative events and spaces like Vancouver Art and Leisure.
