LLW-Canada-Day-14-Lighthead-visuals.jpeg

Very excited to be bringing my visuals show back to The Waldorf. I'll also be dropping some knowledge with the man Andy Clockwork for a b2b set in The Tabu Room.

Guess what? Vancouver's favourite Long Weekend party is back! After a brief haitus, we are stoked to announce that we are returning to our home at the fabulous Waldorf to continue this (now 11 year old) tradition! And what better way to kick things off again than with some killer beats in 3 rooms, with the combined forces of Intimate and our good friends at the Festivus Music Festival and the HEY LOOK crew as follows:

#LLW #LLW #LLW #LLW #LLW

Tabu Room | Underground House | presented by FESTIVUS
WOODHEAD vs ANDY CLOCKWORK • BRISER G vs MATT HUDOLIN • PATRICK KELLY

Tiki Room | NuDisco / Disco / Funk | presented by PARADISE CITY
NICK BIKE • ABASI • GLYN

The Hideaway | Future Bass | presented by HEY LOOK!
FREEBOUND • MEZZY • UNIVERSOUL • DROPSTEADY

You got that right! All this amazing local talent under one roof at the beautiful and historic Waldorf venue where we are committed to continue to showcase amazing artists from Vancouver and beyond, and to keep The Waldorf alive as a centre for music, arts and culture in our city. We humbly acknowledge all those who have helped foster the venue over the years and created the community and look forward to carrying on the spirit and keeping the vibe alive!

Turn-Me-Out-Studio-East-June14-Woodhead.jpg

SAVAGE! PRIMITIVE! UNTAMED!

A walk through the shady alleys of East Vancouver at night can reveal a host of grimy elements. Cat fights, hushed chatterings, and strange encounters with roving bands of unsatisfied youth... yep, the place is definitely a little bit like a B-Movie. Throw in some cheap thrills, hastily crafted set pieces and the obligatory wooden acting that goes along with it, and you've got a recipe for an atypical night out.

Eastside party-munsters Homebreakin Records, Studio East, and Some Kind Of Music Blog collaborate for the first time ever on this mash-up of strange talent, grindhouse tropes, and dancefloor mayhem. You can trust the immersive environment will spurn you on to your seediest.

Featuring your EDITORS...

body-language-11-colour.jpg

Tonight is going to be tight. I'll be unveiling my new custom mapped visual testris light wall. So happy to be welcoming Jesse Bru, Dane and Late Knights Collective to Body Language.

To understand what is fully at work in the process of dance-based emancipation, it's necessary to increase the intimacy of interactions within these trance-like states. A code or shorthand for efficient physical communication develops, arising from the need to preserve movement autonomy and psychological clarity. The form and function of dance must similarly maintain a dialog, and the suspension of default modes of social interaction is a base requirement for the transcendent states demanded by dancefloors of this epoch. Rudimentary applications lead to "shut up and dance" type paradigms, which are bluntly effective, however this can stifle the technicolour creative expressions that arise from the harmonious flow of interaction vis-a-vis music and other human beings.

So say what you want, but do it with your body.

BODY LANGUAGE XI : March 21 @ The Beaumont Studios
featuring...

DANE - Common Edit / Treehouse / Foosh / Red Motorbike

His debut more than a year ago at Body Language 4 was legendary. The energy of such an accomplished disco DJ in a room full of receptive souls was a unique and ephemeral experience for everyone who was there. When someone's passion speaks through their sets like Dane's does, you know you're on board not only with his selection but his overall style and approach to collecting and making music. He's got a new mix to share reflecting another 16 months of his crazy vinyl-termite antics, and we couldn't be happier to have him back.

JESSE BRU - Audio Parralax / Karat / Heart to Heart

Our dearest friend Jesse is known mostly for wearing mainly striped clothing, and spouting a "stripes for life" motto. On the side he keeps busy by consistently releasing gorgeous house music. His skill for extending a musical phrase into an infinite dusty hall-of-mirrors love-moment is unparalleled. Between his halcyon album Mid City LP on Audio Parallax and the flexible productions of his collaboration with Ryan Trann under the "Hot Keys" moniker, it's hard to name a more upstart producer on the west coast. Over the moon we are, to have him grace the decks at his first Body Language appearance.
