lucky-Charms-Beaumont-March-16th.jpg

I'm video mapping the kid's lucky charms. This party is going to be a pot of gold.

CHARMS mesmerize all. The projection of energy and meaning are what make a physical object a CHARM. Once energized, these notorious gems become powerful units and teleport us into the worlds that we desire.

A CHARM can be a trinket, or amulet, an activated crystal, or a healing stone. A CHARM is a flavor filled quantum particle, and a modular language.

CHARMS are physical objects that can create their own ethereal experience just by simply being charged. 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 dark forces. 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 powerful glints may bring us our greatest desires!

All CHARMS welcome – payment will be accepted in coin, gold, silver, and plastic lizard lady money.

SKMB-Some-Kind_of-Music-Party_woodhead-poster.jpg

Very excited to throw down with this highly skilled group of music lovers.
Featuring: Abasi, BIKES, Howl Sound, Juan Ton, Kid Vibe, WMNSTUDIES & Woodhead
W/ Live Visuals by BradyV
SECRET LOCATION TBA
930pm - 5am
$10 All Night

Since starting off as a way to share music finds with friends back in 2010, Some Kind Of Music Blog has changed and grown into something more meaningful than we could have ever imagined. SKMB is a way for us to help expose and support the music, the events, and most importantly, the people, that we and our growing team love and believe in. Our mission is to continue supporting and nurturing creators of all sorts of music culture, globally, but most importantly, locally.

We would like to continue working towards this mission, building on it with new ways of connecting people with the many artists, crews and music lovers making this city an awesome place to be.

With no current sources of revenue and growing costs to maintain and improve our services, we are hoping to raise some money that we can put back into the blog in order to grow our reach and continue supporting the local music community.

We’re really excited to be showcasing some of our favorite local DJ’s from across the Vancouver electronic music community.

Artist Lineup:

Abasi (Intimate / Redlounge.ca)
Having discovered and fallen in love with electronic music in 1991, Abasi started collecting and making mixed electronica tapes soon after. A few years and a few hundred gigs later, his record collection has grown beyond control which includes a healthy mix of all genres of music. Abasi owns/spins many different styles, but he currently specializes in house(deep,bass,garage), techno/minimal, electro*, dance-rock, italo/nu disco, disco/funk and mash-up/eclectic.

In addition, Abasi co-created the Intimate Productionscrew who rolled up their sleeves back in 2000 and have organized many legendary parties and club nights around town since then. The current list includes Deep End Fridays, Spotted Saturdays and the Legendary Long Weekend series. He has played locally at almost all Vancouver clubs as well as in the UK, US and China, and festivals around BC.

BIKES
Although still a relative newcomer to the west coast dance music scene, Shawn Henderson, aka BIKES, has managed to make a name for himself in the 3 short years since first being introduced to house music. From holding down multiple residencies in Vancouver to traveling to South Africa in spring 2012 to play gigs in Cape Town and perform at Afrika Burn (SA’s regional burning man event), it’s fair to say the choice to pursue DJing was the right one. Paying careful attention to the energy of the dance floor at all times, his sets tend to run the gamut of house while demonstrating an intuition and taste of a selector far beyond his years. 2013 saw him make the jump from DJ to producer with the release of his debut EP Retrograde. Characterized by its soulful sample selections and live instrumentation, the release pays homage to his beatmaking background within a 4x4 framework. With a new EP in the works and some exciting gigs lined up for the summer, BIKES looks forward to what 2014 has in store.

Howl Sound
Deep bass, jacking beats, and catchy hooks just are a few inspirations that brought Howl Sound into existence. Born out of many late nights, deep in the forests of North Americas west coast, howling to beat of many forest raves; this was the basis for what became, drawing a strong connection not only to the underground, the obscure, but also the beauty of life itself in all of its forms. Howl Sound is the result of a long time friendship between fellow djs U-Tee and Sean 314. After years of playing apart, both members began sharing slots with each other, quickly forming a strong bond on stage. Two years later, it felt only natural to take that chemistry from behind the decks and apply it to their own productions. Howl Sound are known for playing anything deep and groovy, melding between house, techno and bass music. What is most important is always staying fresh and having fun.

JUAN TON (Electric Input / FVDED)
Jaun Ton is a talented audio engineer, DJ and member of Electric Input, a collective of Vancouver DJs and producers who strive to create a positive vibe through electronic music, as well as put on events at various venues around the city. He is no stranger to the scene, and holds a resident spot with Blueprintevents.ca, specifically their FVDED nights.

Kid Vibe (Vibrations)
Kid Vibe, the eclectic DJ and music producer, has a knack of showcasing the various elements that encompass the underground dance music scene.
His journey into music started at a young age, but as he grew older, his curiosity led him to a more directed focus towards House music. His fascination with House music and dance culture led him to pursue DJing where he has been able to spread his experiences towards a larger audience throughout his hometown of Vancouver (Fortune Sound) and Tokyo (New Lex).
It was only a matter of time before producing was to become a structured habit. Creating songs that include elements of Deep House, Jackin', and even Hip Hop, Kid Vibe has been able to successfully distribute his music through some of House musics premier underground labels. These include Connect-d, MIAUDIO, Dufflebag Recordings, Bid Muzik, and a slew of others. He has received support from world-class DJ's such as MK, Scott Diaz, and Mark Farina. As well, he has achieved success from various European radio stations including Romania's Dance FM where he had produced the most requested song of 2013. Kid Vibe's journey through music production continues to evolve, hoping to one day solidify his name right next to his peers.

Wmnstudies
WMNstudies are Zach Smith & Nathan ‘Savemeboots’ Samson . After meeting in 2010, the duo based out of Toronto and Vancouver respectively have risen to international recognition with their many remixes, including Ryhe’s Open and Mereki’s ‘Blue Lake’, both of which reached the top remixed track on the Hype Machine, generating exposure from blogs such as Golden Scissors,Hilly Dilly and Gotta Dance Dirty. Since then the duo has released official remixes for Mereki (of Goldroom fame), Bestie and Pat lok and have been keeping busy sharing the stage with such acts as Disclosure, Flume, Breakbot, Flight Facilities, Classixx, Goldroom, Duke Dumont, John Talabot, Alex Metric, Moon Boots, Holy Ghost, and Anna Lunoe, just to name a few. Being big supporters of the local scene, the duo have been throwing many underground parties as well as started a monthly party in Vancouver called White Noise, showcasing some of the best house and disco acts in the industry, as well as taking up residencies in many of Vancouver’s best clubs. Look out for new releases on the way as well as extensive touring from these two.

Woodhead ( Homebreakin Records / East Van Digital )
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.

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.
