Biography

Currently residing in Victoria, British Columbia, Antagonist is bringing a fresh take on the bass music scene, on both local and international scales. With a passion for sound design, he drives forth a unique blend of soft melodic textures and wild savage basslines like a tour de force. Now in his sophomore year as a producer, he has accumulated releases on multiple record labels, established a strong online fanbase, and gotten rotations and accolades from many of his peers and influences, including Excision, Numbernin6, DJ Sashwat, Mark Instinct, Cottonmouth, and many more.
Antagonist began his career in 2007 as a hip-hop artist, both producing for hire and to accompany his own lyrics. His prior knowledge in rhythm guitar and thrash metal found Antagonist’s productions influenced strongly by hostile tones and dark melodies. The ensuing search for a more aggressive sound lead him to leave ‘traditional’ hip-hop behind and focus on dubstep - which has recently expanded to include drum and bass, glitch hop, moombahton, and various other genres of ‘bass music’. His focus on combining the hard-hitting beats from rap music and the aggressive tones in metal, while adding hints of classical music and middle eastern flavours, are the driving force behind Antagonist’s unique sound.
With a well-established skillset in the studio, Antagonist is now naturally branching outwards to DJing. With priority set upon his original productions, he creates intelligent, multi-genre sets ranging from the deepest of deep to the most savage heavy basslines around. Whatever the style, wherever the venue, be prepared for a thorough soaking in sub bass!

Biography

Ryan Cain (ThatsDeep) sees music as a universal language, or the only language there is. Born with a natural melodic pulse in his body into a multicultural habitat filled with wide ranges of music, ThatsDeep believes in transcending barriers and remaining based to eliminate set conventions. Blending his background in Funk, Soul, R&B, and Hip Hop with his love of Purple Crunk and UK Funky, ThatsDeep finds it difficult to place himself within a genre, often referring his sound to future styles and bringing the sexy back.

Raised in one of Calgary’s most diverse neighbourhoods by equally eclectic parents, ThatsDeep grew up in the midst of funk filled backyard parties and multicultural friends. Where music of genres from all over the globe flowed, he managed to enhance his already developing melodic palate. Throwing his first show at the age of twelve, it was evident that he was an old soul, rich with rhythm.

After a brief stint in the fashion industry, ThatsDeep became an integral part in Calgary’s music and nightlife scene as he began promoting and throwing events and showcases for artists he felt passionate about. With a focus on unique venues, mind blowing sounds, and a sense of community, ThatsDeep opened the doors for many to the ever growing bass scene, despite challenges of introducing the new and unknown.

ThatsDeep made his return to the decks in 2009 with a weekly residency dubbed ‘Cold Chillin’ wednesdays at Bungalow Lounge in Calgary, followed by playing alongside TheRinseOut crew for their Friday night bass party, ‘Modern Math’. After making Victoria his new habitat, he has since been seen at Whitebird Lounge, The Reef Restaurant, Touch Lounge and Hush Nightclub.

ThatsDeep believes in striving for truth, knowledge, and using the power held deep within us to stay in the light. As the world sees more battles with the dark side, he sees music as an essential tool in obtaining these goals. His sexy, cosmic sounds hold an unpretentious welcome to anyone from anywhere as he invites you to join his journey into the deep end.

2x DMC World Champ + Dancefloor Destroyer + Harvard Math Grad + Producer =

New York City’s Shiftee has translated his intuitive math geek mentality into far-reaching success on the turntables, electrifying crowds from NYC to London to Hong Kong. With a degree from Harvard, 2 unique DMC World Champion titles, an NYU professorship, and an ongoing international tour schedule, this overachiever can only be positioned for greatness.  Who says you can’t do it all?
On Sept. 12, 2009, Shiftee represented the USA in the 2009 DMC World DJ Finals. He took the title, was automatically inducted into the DMC DJ Hall of Fame and brought the fabled gold Technics turntables back to NYC.

Biography

The popularity of bass-heavy dance music is spreading like wildfire across the world, with many producers crafting their own styles of dubstep, grime and garage. In the humble city of Pittsburgh, PA DJ/producer Kastle has cultivated his own style of bass-heavy beats with a soulful twist reminiscent of classic Chicago house.

After teaching himself guitar and piano around the age of 12, Barrett Richards pooled his efforts towards electronic instrumentation about two years later. He began taking production as seriously as he did DJing during that time, and involved himself deep into the Northeast rave scene. It was no surprise that in time, though, personal growth and 14 years of production experience paired with a degree in audio engineering would breed a new sound. Kastle came to life at a pivotal moment after a big move from Boston back to his hometown of Pittsburgh in March 2009. After nearly a year of conceptualizing, he knew he was working on something special.

The name itself implies a fortress, a personal space that is used to cultivate a long-time love of hip-hop and R&B, old garage and 2-step and fuse it with the magnetizing effect that dubstep, garage and bass-heavy music has had on Barrett and, really, the various communities of underground electronic music. Readjusting to Steel City - a concentrated environment of blue collars and strong values - he wasted zero effort to get the project off the ground.

The studio and touring dichotomy of an artist’s life is a perfect yin & yang for Kastle in both his production and outlook. His professional experience as an engineer puts forth clean, crisp production, but his love for the party provides a playful bass that eats a room. Altogether, the wide varieties of vocals - both originals and sampled - are a key element to Kastle’s sound. “I grew up on hip hop and R&B, and sampling is considered an art form,” he says. “It’s becoming more and more fun to dig through old records and find obscure samples.” He cites another unexpected influence -legendary French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, who had once said that “it’s not where you take things from, it’s where you take them to.”

Straight out of the gates Kastle has garnished strong media attention from the likes of XLR8R, URB and Fact Magazine along with plays on BBC Radio 1.His fresh and unique production work has also seen him working with big labels such as Ministry of Sound and Scion A/V and he has lent his production chops to rework artists such as Example, Blu Mar Ten and The Glitch Mob. With so much accomplished in such a short time, it is clear that not even the sky is the limit for the future of Kastle.

Biography

The West Midlands based duo (Leigh & Karl) started music production back in may 2009 when a simple hobby became an obsession. with no production knowlede but the thirst to learn, the guys where thrown in the deep end when there bootlegs got the attention of several podcasts. this then changed a hobby into a carrier.

With over 50 releases on beatport squeezed into 7 months from there first release back in nov 09, these guys just don’t let the speakers cool down!

Refusing to stick to the ‘genre rulebook’ & defining there music as ‘Ecstatic House’ there is never a dull moment with there mind shattering bass & there ever growing need to keep the crowd guessing.

Having huge support from some big names such as ‘Lazy Rich ‘Rico Tubbs’ ‘Will Bailey’ Luvstuff’ & having plays on Radio 1’s ’ Kissy Sellout Show’ the lads really are making a dent in the music scene.

This is one duo that will be around for a very long time!!

Smalltown DJs

Smalltown DJsT & A Records, WESC, Calgary


Biography

If your ears work, you can’t not have fun at a Smalltown DJs gig. That’s a scientific fact. Look it up. The Canadian duo’s uncanny ability to make crowds feel like schoolkids at recess stems naturally from their focus on maximizing fun for themselves.
“We’re just out to consistently have the best time possible,” says Pete Emes, who shares space behind the decks with partner Mike Grimes.  This fun maximization philosophy is the unifying force behind the Smalltown’s genre-warping club sets, which cover vast musical territory but never veer from the good times vibe.
Smalltown DJs began in 1999, when Emes and Grimes started playing records out together. Before long the duo had launched Hai Karate, a weekly Thursday smash-up that’s still going strong. Now in its twelfth year, Hai Karate is a free-for-all dance party that borrows a little from each of the scenes that shaped the Smalltown sound: community hall punk rock, block party hip-hop and early nineties rave.
The long-running night is now hosted at HiFi Club, the Calgary nightspot that the Smalltowners opened with a partner in 2005. In 2011, they added to their clubland empire with Commonweath Bar & Stage, a much larger venue that has already become a linchpin of Calgary’s music scene.

I am so glad that I can be a part of that.  ~ Charles Feelgood   Point blank, Charles Feelgood loves music and even more, he loves sharing it with his fans. The man prides himself on his ability to connect with his audience – through a wicked combination of his exuberant personality and his exquisite ability to know what fills and keeps a dance floor pumpin’.  His rise to dance music infamy dates back to his humble beginnings as the leading force behind the Baltimore / Washington DC electronic music scene. Alongside his partner, and fellow DJ, Scott Henry, Feelgood launched Fever, which for nearly a decade became one of the most sought after events for touring DJs from around the world.  It was the days after starting Fever that Feelgood enhanced his reputation amongst those the international dance community. He parlayed his danceable brand of House music up and down the East coast and became renown for his creative ability to incorporate his love of 80’s music with a variety of different House styles into his sets. In the years that have followed, he has taken his talents to all ends of the earth – from North and South America to Russia and Asia, and everywhere in between. He has appeared at such seminal events as Coachella, and Lollapalooza, and has become a welcome fixture with Insomniac, Giant, and Karma Foundation. He also plays quite regularly in Los Angeles (Vanguard, Playhouse), San Francisco (Ruby Skye), and has been a part of the annual Mardi Gras festivities in New Orleans for over a decade.  Around the turn of the century, Feelgood moved from the familiarity of his East coast domain to sunny SoCal. Since the cross-county relocation he has become ensconced in the West coast scene and ramped up his production work. His initial popularity was assisted thanks in part to his legendary mixed series, “Time to Get Ill” and has continued to flourish though the release of remixes and singles such as “Hands,” “Aerobic Martini,” “Strobe Light,” and “Burnin”. He is a mainstay in the Top 100 on BeatPort and Top 10 on a number of other worldwide digital sites.  In the past year Feelgood has had several releases on Major and Independent labels such as PornoStar, Instereo and Burn The Fire - remixing everything from Lady Gaga to P Diddy. He also had a breakout track called “Hands” on Ultra that made the Beatport Top 100 chart several weeks running with an Alex Kenji remix. 
~ more ~
In 2010 Feelgood launched his first podcast “Bumpin House Madness” – an ongoing series of hour-long mixes that showcases both his music as well as some of the music he adores. The podcast is available for download on iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/charles-feelgoods-bumpin-house/id365599645).  And it doesn’t stop there. In late 2011 Feelgood is launching his own indie imprint, Supa Cuts Recordings. This label will be an outlet for Feelgood to showcase his own productions as well a platform for new talent discoveries in the dance music community.  Accolades such as repeatedly being named to DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJs aside, Feelgood remains committed to lighting up dance floors around the world – summing up his musical mission in one sentence: “I just want to do what the name implies, to make people have a good time and go home with a great feeling”.  Indeed.

Biography

Elevenn Seraphim is a unique musical experience. It is a ferocious blend of dubstep, glitch and hiphop. Using the classic formula of DJ and turntables, Elevenn uses conscious darkness slathered on psyche shattering beats to save the masses from their bleak everyday lives. Seraphim is the result of a powerful individual finding the beauty in the struggle and using every watt to ravage every ear within range. Living on the edge in Victoria BC, she has been given a divine right to do this.

Elevenn is almost too much to deal with. As a DJ, she is personally responsible for ushering in the Dubstep scene in Calgary. Having found her soul in the sheer filth of Dubstep in 2006, while most other DJ’s were busy growing hair in strange new places, Elevenn made it her personal mandate to pwn the scene’s largest parties and give the kids something fresh. A skilled turntablist, with a true gift for reading the crowd’s energy, her sets leave people in a sweaty satisfied mess. Elevenn on the decks is a gothic dark empress with a soft touch and an iron fist. Dub chub may occur, be forewarned.

So this is 2011 and everybody better hold their ankles, cause the sky is about to bleed. The studio is up, the tables are spinning, the mic is armed and the volume is making doctors nervous. The album is coming. Seraphim is crafting a sound scape that even the Sandman couldn’t dream up. There are wet bibles and exploding pianos in the sample bank and that’s just the beginning. Elevenn is a talented producer and has been creating beats and honing her craft into excellence for the past few years. Keep your ears open as the process continues. But, oh no, don’t think that it stops there. Seraphim is taking this to your front door. Performing all over Pacific Northwest and internationally, know the name so you can stay up to date, I mean, who doesn’t want to have their face melted off?

Elevenn headlined alongside shows with other demigods such as: Caspa, Aquasky, Subvert, Benny Page, Excision, Ill-esha and DJ Swamp to name a few, and she’s rocked shows and festivals across the country, from Montreal to Victoria and everywhere in between. The experience is like no other. A new age is upon us. Hark, hear the Seraphim sing.

Biography

Ben Chemikal (real name Ben Hodding), was born and raised in Duncan BC, and constantly surrounded by music from a young age. After several years of piano lessons, he went on to play guitar, drums, and any other instrument that was just.. lying around. It wasn’t long until Ben found himself amongst a Vancouver island rave, and saw some Electronic DJing first hand. That was all it took to get him hooked on the idea of collecting his own vinyl records, and perfecting the art of the mix. Buying up Nuskool breakbeats and Drum and Bass at first, it was several months before he got into Speed Garage, 4x4, and 2 Step, which remain to be the cornerstone of his sound. Being a big dubstep fan, it didn’t take long for Ben to blend his subby speed garage with his growing collection of dubstep vinyl. Shortly after that, Ben’s two sounds came to a meeting point in his first cracks at music production, and after tons of bootleg remixes and originals (and a good year glued to his PC), got signed to Bassment Projex, FX Logiks’ now well established digital bassline lable, as well as Nu Industry Recordings, both in late 2008. He’ll frequently broaden his styles in his live sets to include Bass-Heavy Electro, and Glitchy Mid-Tempo Breaks guaranteeing his listeners a plethora of soundscapes, original tracks, live mash ups…. and a wicked good time.

Biography

For Nathan Docksteader aka Natron the fascination and future inspiration for and from electronic music began in the late 90’s after hearing the cutting edge music being played and produced by Sasha & John Digweed, Dave Seaman, Nick Warren and others who were all at the head of the pack, leading the way and focused on the underground sounds of progressive house music.

As his interest and passion for electronic music grew he knew he had to find a way to share this intense emotion and calling with others. The medium of choice was obvious – In early 2003 Natron hit the decks and began DJing with a solid foundation of inspiration and experiences to draw from.

2004 was the year that opened up and further focused Nathan’s life as an artist more than almost any other. Meeting the Moreh brothers (a.k.a. Shiloh) truly helped shape and define the way Natron played music and gave him insights into how he listened to and what he heard in music and further cemented his already firm foundation that has thus enabled him to continually evolve and grow.

Fast forward now to 2011 and feeling incredibly inspired by rolling funky minimal grooves, Natron has taken his musical direction to more of an energetic fusion of organic techno and house, laden with percussion rolls, synth stabs and smooth basslines. With his inherent gift for track selection and programming Natron’s ability to move a dancefloor in one cohesive sweaty groove is unmatched.

With a full schedule of shows on his plate and Natron’s addition to the Sunset Labs team, 2011 is shaping up to be a breakthrough year for this committed artist!

Biography

Taking his name from a line in a Slayer song, DJ Demonseed assaults the dancefloor with the brutal sounds of Dutch hardcore, hardstyle, and hard dark drum’n’bass, better known as evilstep. His love of hardcore began in the late 80s and early 90s with speedmetal, deathmetal and industrial groups including Slayer, Metallica, Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, Voivod, Ministry, Malhavoc, and Skinny Puppy, and progressed into electronic music in 1994 with the emergence of the Rotterdam hardcore techno sound. He likes melody with his hardcore, along with hard drums and plenty of bass. Recently he has expanded his sound into hardstyle and hard techno, by slowing the more melodic aspects of Rotterdam from the typical 170+ beats per minute to a more manageable 140bpm.

Spending an unhealthy amount of time perfecting his craft, Lewd Behavior (aka Wyatt Compagna) is a highly technical artist. In the studio he is meticulous, and on stage he is outrageous. If he sets foot in the club you can expect live edits, mash ups, original productions, remixes, and exclusive tracks he would be assassinated for telling you about. Not to mention he was dropping beats at the bar before he was old enough to drink. This all culminates into an infectious live experience that will keep you feverishly salivating for more.

Biography

I specialize in UK Bass music such as dubstep, garage, liquid funk, drum & bass. I am the founder of a music collective (Outersphere Recordings) that has the primary goal of building community in Victoria centered around dance music, primarily dubstep and drum & bass, as well as to positively support all existing music collectives in the city. I run two radio shows every week including one broadcasting out of the UK, and one from the University of Victoria (beginning July 9th).

I have a large amount of instrumental music experience and my obsession is also my career choice. I am finishing my last six courses for a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Music, studying with some leading music technology researchers at the University of Victoria. I am the founder and current president of the Computer Music Course Union at the university intend on entering a Masters program in this field in the fall of 2012.

I began performing primarily as a DJ this year as an opening act for Whitebird events, including “Propa Tingz” and “Grasp the Erro” at Hush Nightclub. Following the event, I was featured in a review by Victoria’s bass music blogger “Dub Selekta” (www.dubselekta.com). In November 2010, I was booked to provide music for a Whistler, BC snowboard company named Voleurz to support their promotional video tour (www.voleurz.ca). This event took place at Sugar Nightclub and was a highly successful. The included artist photos depict this event.

Since these events, I have filled the role as an in-house DJ at Whitebird Lounge, substituting for Sub|Division’s DJ Rhythmicon on several occasions. I have also performed as a DJ at many more informal events.

Biography

At a young age, I was not interested in music. Like anyone else, I’d listen to the hits on the radio, but was never really inspired by what was popular. One day, at the age of 11, everything changed when I was gifted a magical burnt CD filled with all varieties of electro – from house to trance, from trance back to big beat. In that moment a lifelong quest was started to branch out and discover the very best of every genre. From there, it was only a matter of time before listening wasn’t enough – the need to create was growing within.

As a musician, I believe this passion has led to an eclectic, creative, and exciting style that cannot be accurately contained by any single genre. From one song to the next, I try to bring a new energy, a fresh angle, and a wicked vibe – all designed to tear the dance floor to shreds.

Biography

Whether he’s opening for international superstars like Tipper, Bassnectar and the Freestylers; rocking a headlining slot at an outdoor party or providing backdrop beats in a local lounge, Generic is the kind of DJ who fully brings it, whatever the gig. His combination of technical skills (the guy has taken several Vancouver Island DJ competition titles), impeccable ear for crowd-rocking tunes and a fun-loving attitude makes Generic (nee Cole Magnusson) one of the Island’s most sough-after disc jockeys. Expect one of his sets to be chock-a-block with broken beats, glitch hop, drum and bass and dubstep—including some of his own tracks, edits and remixes—with plenty of cutting and scratching thrown in for good measure. With skills like that, it’s no surprise this 10-year vet behind the decks rarely goes a weekend without dropping a set

Biography

Born and raised in Canada’s sunny Okanagan Valley, Eric had an early start, experimenting with production software and getting his first set of dj gear at only age 15. Months after he was playing parties for friends, events at local schools and as the years progressed, larger and larger events including clubs and outdoor dance events in surrounding cities. Eric’s work began so early in fact that he was still underage when he played his first club gigs, having to be escorted in an out of the venues so that he could play his sets. Fast forward to today and having picked up and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in late 2007, Eric Allen is now a major power player in the west coast electronic music scene. After landing a residency in late 2009 at Vancouver’s famous Gorgomish Afterhours, Eric’s name began to circulate among the local nightlife elite. He soon found himself rocketing up from a gig a month the year previous, to playing over 50 live shows in 2010, an explosion of popularity seldom seen. Not only did he find himself playing at his residency almost every Friday, but opening for international artists like Above & Beyond, Gabriel & Dresden, Max Graham, Marco V and countless others at some of the cities biggest venues. Eric is also a major driving force behind supporting the local dance scene and has always found it important to help give back to the community that has given him so much. As one of the original founders of Vancouver’s over 1500 member strong “Vancouver Trance Family” organization, his work with his “Awake” nightlife brand and club nights and a supporter of new and upcoming talent, Eric is an influential force in shaping the future of the west coast dance community.

Somehow despite the constant lack of sleep, onslaught of live shows and his work in the local scene, Eric also finds time to maintain his own radio show, “On The Dance Floor”. The show, which airs monthly on AfterhoursFM, one of the internet’s most well recognized electronic dance stations, goes out to thousands of listeners worldwide. He is also rountinely requested by various industry elite to lend his talents to guest mixes including a recent appearance on American dance legend Christopher Lawrence’s “Rush Hour” podcast, a dj who himself was extremely impressed with Eric’s talents behind the decks after Eric opened for him in Vancouver.

Now setting in his sights firmly on the studio and original productions, Eric has begun to hone his talents as a producer. Eric already includes countless edits, reworks, mashups and even the occasional bootleg remix in his sets, but the time has come to complete the picture with original work. Having music theory training and studio recording education dating back to his middle school days, the progression is a natural one for Eric and promises to be an exciting new venture.

The last few years have been massive for Eric and the next few promise to be even bigger. Look (and listen) for Eric coming to a club or event near you!

But when he saw a friend manipulating mp3’s with a little device filled by confusing buttons and sliders, he had to learn more. Tyler later bought that very device and started manipulating mp3’s himself. During this time, his friend began showing him the joys of vinyls spinning on turntables, and better music. Then… It happened… That moment where his life was taken over. Forever changed. What did it? Tyler had never seen or experienced anything like it. Shambhala Music Festival 2008 It was the turning point where a little bedroom hobby became his passion. Tyler was introduced to some amazing people who were willing to let some unknown DJ play music for the masses. After numerous Raves and clubs throughout the Okanagan, Tyler got his first weekly residency in Kamloops BC. Thirsty for more and ready for the next step, Tyler packed his bags and set off for Vancouver.

Biography

John Norman’s sound has been refined over many years of avid pursuit of that which is driving yet laid back, full yet minimalist. The result is a sound unlike any other, filling dancefloors whether under his DJ alias Khemlab, or with his productions as John Norman.

His first major label release Never Again gained support from international heavy hitters including Markus Schulz, M.I.K.E, Wally Lopez, Marcella, and Jesse Voorn, and he shows no signs of looking back.

His sound cultivated over years of throwing some of the most memorable events in the Canadian Prairies, bringing in artists such as Frankie Bones, Signum, Ronski Speed, Bryan Jones and Patrick DSP to name a few. Literally starting out as the kid hauling his huge record bag to open decks, John quickly gained reputation for impeccable tight mixing blending sounds together for a unique approach to techno, minimal and tech house, but knowing no bounds. With this, he began booking events throughout his hometown of Winnipeg and across central Canada, Toronto, Montreal, and the Northern US.

Over this time his sound caught the ear of radio stations such as puredj.com in Holland, the former CityBeat Radio in Scotland, Undergroundradio.tv (formally Miami Beatz Radio)), and Canadian Techno.fm, where he continues to syndicate radio shows. In addition, his mixes have been featured on stations from England, Brazil, Croatia, Chile, Bulgaria, and was one of the final featured guests on DJ Preach’s Transatlantic Radio show who stated that John’s “mix of tech house will take you to a place you’ve never been”. John has also garnered interest from the music news and promotions site Beatsmedia, bringing his sound to an even larger world audience with their regular posting of his monthly Original Language Global Session, putting him in an artist portfolio alongside industry names such as Arnej, Roger Shah, Lazy Rich, Robbie Rivera, and Leon Boiler.

With a move to London, UK scheduled for August 2011 you can expect John to push his productions and DJ sets to new heights as his obsession with sound continues, taking influence not only from electronic music history but from the everyday and spreading his brand of music the world over.

Biography

The past year for Calex has been a time for refinement of his unique sound. The vibe that Calex brings to any party is not found amongst many Vancouver DJ’s; he takes elements of house, techno, progressive and tech-house to weave his own blend of sonic destruction. While his love affair with electronic music started only 6 years ago, he has immersed himself as few have. This has led to Calex playing alongside the best that western Canada has to offer, including Shiloh, AFK and Joel Armstrong. Spending 14 months overseas Calex was able to learn the fine art of floor shattering as he held down a twice-weekly residency. These experiences, his consistently evolving sound and the need to spread his passion with the audience has made Calex popular around the globe amongst his peers and the dancers.

Biography

GUMBOOTZ….. Born in Toronto, Cale “Gumbootz” Robichaud, moved to the west coast at the young age of 11. Growing up, he had a major love for music, and knew that one day he would be on a stage rocking out! But it wasn’t until a friend picked up a couple turntables that he realized his true calling; to rock the masses as a DJ.

Over a decade has passed and Gumbootz has since built up a reputation as a hard hitting DJ, opening for world class talent such as The Freestylers, The Breakfasters, Donald Glaude, Bryx, Myagi, Smalltown Dj’s and Wood & Soo. He has also hosted a weekly internet radio show on “Icestation.net” and held a weekly residency at Karma Nightclub.

Gumbootz made heads explode at the infamous ‘Soundwave’ music festival, the ‘Victoria Electronic Music Festival (VEMF)’, Jump Ship, and countless other raves and parties up and down Vancouver Island. Gumbootz has a lot of experience under his belt and what we’ve seen so far is only the beginning!

Recently Gumbootz has gotten into the music production side of things along side good friend Dj Generic, who has been teaching Gumbootz the ins and outs of music production. Gumbootz has been working hard to be able to take this into his live sets as well, to create a fusion of DJ set and live PA by linking Ableton, Traktor Scratch and NI’s Maschine.

Gumbootz’ energy, charisma, and ability to rock the crowd, makes even the most stubborn of party goers hit the dance floor. DJ Gumbootz is definitely not one to miss.

Biography

One part sexy robot and one part aerobics instructor, 25 year old Matt Dauncey has managed to find the middle ground between music and athletics. By harnessing the power of wrestling suits, tennis sweatbands, vintage synthesizers, and electric guitar, Neighbour has tapped into an ancient power-source that has given him the capacity to conjure up frenzied dancefloors

wherever he is needed. Through a mysterious process that involves not one, but TWO gigantic crystals, the Homebreakin Records co-owner has managed to combine the raw ecstacy of the early days of disco with razor-sharp futuristic production.

His hybrid DJ / live performance tore across the continent this year, culminating in an incredible series of festival dates across western Canada, including headlining slots at Shambhala 2009, Soundwave, Bass Coast Project, Astral Harvest, and Summer Break. In addition to playing almost 100% original production and remixes, Neighbour plays live synthesizer and electric guitar alongside his legendary DJ sets, which range from no-nonsense electric funk bangers to gorgeous technicolor remixes of classic garage, disco, and house music.

Not one to be pigeonholed, Neighbour has spent the better part of the last two years collaborating with everyone in sight. Upcoming dancehall tracks with Calgary’s Ouda Ouda, boogie-raps with fellow performer MC ThinkTank, and an unbelieveable slate of remixes and original releases guarantee that as soon as you think you know that “Neighbour Sound”, it has grown into something completely different.

Some people say that dance music isn’t as fun as it used to be; then again, some people haven’t seen a grown man in a unitard shoot lazers out of his guitar far away into the night sky.

Biography

Born and raised on the West Coast of Canada, Chronikal (Alistair Stewart..or just Al to his friends) has been writing and performing music since age 8, when he picked up his first guitar. While his style has changed since then, Al’s love for the uplifting vocal melodies and savage basslines that get any crowd on their feet has remained consistent throughout. 
With his first European tour now complete, and a host of releases on UK record labels (Fokuz, Grin Recordings, Definite Grooves), Chronikal is quickly carving a name for himself in the world dance music scene.  Al’s debut release under his DnB alias ‘Nightvision’ achieved impressive support across the UK and Europe, receiving regular airplay on BBC Radio and spending 8 weeks in the Beatport DnB Top 100 chart.  His remixes for Definite Grooves and The So Called Scumbags have been heard in a number of Ibiza’s world-famous venues including Space, Pacha, and Amnesia, as well as BBC and other UK and European radio stations. Refusing to limit himself to one, or even two genres, Al’s most recent Dubstep collaboration with Hardcore Beats’ Ed209 under the alias ‘Rough Child,’ is already gaining massive support, with their debut EP scheduled for release later this year on Excision’s Rottun Recordings.
Chronikal’s live sets are much like his original production – diverse, and aggressive.  The constant double drops, and seamless shifts between genres never fail to get the dancefloor on their feet, and leave them begging for more when he drops his final track. 
Now, having returned to Canada after 4 years in England with an impressive track record of gigs and releases across Europe and the UK, Chronikal is ready to take North America by storm.

Biography

Photek stands mercilessly on the edge. A sonic scientist, pushing both his sounds and fans’ expectations to the outermost limits since 1994, he floods the footnotes of electronica like MP3s clutter up your hard drive.

He was there when Goldie declared it drum & bass but to this day he still prefers the term jungle. He chats regularly with James Lavelle, wondering what would’ve become if his remixes of Attica Blues had led to a more affirmed relationship with the agenda setting Mo Wax. His major label link with Virgin is the blueprint of how things once were; endless time and budget-free worries led to ‘Modus Operandi’. A conceptual experiment of time and emotive atmospherics, it pushed the drum & bass template to the edge. Previously misinterpreted as a lone paranoid soldier, a conspiracy theorist and a man from Ipswich, Rupert Photek Parkes is none of the above. Each tale you’ll be regaled with elsewhere online is based on a spec of truth that’s exploded beyond proportion. May the real Photek please stand up…

2011 will see him drop a series of sounds that reflect the truest perception of him once and for all. Driven by his years of studio discipline; sharpened by an acute awareness that he’ll be received by the heads that know him well and ears that don’t know him at all, Photek’s new sound carries all the barbed motifs and icy atmospherics you’ll know from seminal cuts such as ‘Seven Samurai’ and ‘Hidden Camera’ all tied up tight with his own take on today’s contemporary genre-breaking melting pot.
Ardent displays of his eclectic method were there from the very beginning. The seeds had been sewn back in the dancefloor’s most formative days, attending early raves, pretty much in his school uniform, and hearing DJs like Jumping Jack Frost fire their way through everything from Derrick May to Phil Collins. These influences are clear from his first EP on Metalheadz with the drum & bass meets downtempo ‘Into The 90s’... ‘Yendi’, the flipside to the ‘Modus Operandi’ 12”, was a prototype for dubstep while ‘Mine To Give’, a sassy slab of sexed up house coated in Robert Owens’ iconic soul, set the foundations for the genreless battlefields well trodden by the likes of Commix and Mount Kimbie.

A list of his big screen scores should follow, but it won’t. Photek carelessly yarns his years in LA as ‘doing this and that’, but it wasn’t. Hived in the western world’s most creative hub, his time since 2007’s ‘Form & Function Volume 2’ has been a creative whirlwind. Collaborations with Nine Inch Nails and troubled troubadour Ray LaMontagne; sell out TekDUZ shows with 12th Planet and DJ Craze; the evening commute down Sunset Boulevard with Fab & Groove on Sirius reminding him of the UK bass culture he helped develop… Photek stands undeniably on the edge of undiluted inspiration.

Destination tomorrow: Photek’s decorated past and diligent work ethic leads us here. The new music you’ve heard from Photek in 2011 is yet another chapter in a life spent overdosing on sonic nuances and boundary testing. In the past 12 months his new material has been remixed by the brightest young stars of dance music - Boddika, Falty DL, Addison Groove and Breach to name a few. In turn, Photek has remixed for the likes of Moby, Jess Mills, Distance, Ray Lamontagne and was part of Daft Punk’s Tron Remixed package - for which he has been nominated for a Grammy. His newly re-launched label, Photek Productions, has this year released the ‘Avalanche EP’ which garnered international support from tastemakers such as Benji B, Gilles Peterson, Skream, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and more, and the ‘Aviator EP’. The single ‘Closer’ was also released on Pinch’s pioneering Tectonic Recordings in June, adding to the gathering noise that you can’t ignore - Photek is well and truly back and you can be sure that whatever sound he drops next, it won’t fail to get the world’s attention… Watch out in 2012 for his installment in the highly influential DJ Kicks compilation series on K7 Records and his long awaited new artist album.
