********

LINEUP:

DJ DUBCONSCIOUS (Nelson, BC)
[Shambhala Music Festival / Dubslingers / Gore Street Sound]

Dubconscious has come to represent both the east & the western coast of Canada. Born and raised in the Toronto area, he attended University in Victoria before spending 2 years in Nelson BC, snowboarding in the winters & working with the talent department at Shambhala Music Festival and as talent buyer with their venue, Bloom Nightclub. Since then, he's gone on to become a resident of the Living Room Stage over the past eight years, also performing on the Village Stage five of those years - as well as turning in 4 years of performances at Bass Coast. After a 4 year stint living in East Vancouver, this seasoned selector has returned to the Kootenays with a plethora of fresh flavors to pop off in the dance – monumental basslines meet a roots reggae infusion, reggae and dancehall intermingle, funky bashment vibes and bass-infused house face off, with elements of classic hip hop and trip hop, the drum'n'bass and jungle pulse keeping things lively, spacey halftimebeats contrast thick dubwise riddims - all tied together with a dash of turntablism.

********

BAD RABBIT

Bad Rabbit is Blackout x Nova Jade, a DJ Duo based in Victoria, BC that emerged after a meeting over tea, a few jam sessions, and a camping trip. They are spinning Bi-weekly on SUBFM and they are involved in many different projects in the Victorian electronic music scene.

With 21 years of combined experience, and their shared passion for music, bass and dance, Blackout and Nova Jade as Bad Rabbit are a duo on the rise, with the energy to match. Got Rabbit Food?

TYLER SHOCK (Winnipeg - Dubversified Culture)

Starting out DJing in Manchester, UK resident DJ Tyler Shock brought home to Canada a dark and weighty style heavily influenced by the dark textures of underground UK dubstep, grime, and drum and bass labels such as Critical records and Deep Medi.

Upon moving to Victoria out of Winnipeg, Tyler has continued developing a unique and varying style, taking in the sounds of West Coast glitch hop and bass house to develop an arsenal covering a wide range of styles and genres, able to step up and deliver selections for any mood or occasion.

FREQUENCY: Victoria weekly intimate underground club night.

_DANE
https://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/dane
Dane hails from the icy Plaines of Canada’s North. Born and raised in the work hardy city of Edmonton, he grew up playing Shinny Hockey and driving a Zamboni in the local rinks. Naturally those cold nights on the ice led him directly to the warmth of the dance floor at a young age. From then on his life in Edmonton blossomed into being a part of a loving community, where he manned the local record shop and played his weekly residency at The Common for over half a lifetime. Now 32, Dane has relocated to Berlin with excitement for the cosmic future ahead.

Over the years, a deep love and adoration for Western Canada grew. Spending time out in Vancouver and Victoria, falling in love with some of the finest people around. With timely meetings of Westcoast disco OG’s Koosh & Eddie C, coupled with the support of The Common, Dane had the gentle nudge needed to start his label Common Edit. Starting out as a simple excuse to press a record, throw a party and have a time, it soon became one of Canada’s foremost edit imprints, specializing in 7” & 12” cuts for the floor and bedroom.

Love, records and dancing have always been Dane’s passion. It shows in his sets with maniacal hair flips, expressive dancing and belting out lyrics to every hard dug record in his crates. Obsessive collecting and practice have made Dane one of Canada’s favourite 4x4 contributors. Carrying on the message of love, unity and lust for music, that you can feel every time you share the dance floor with him. Whatever the mood, he’ll take you higher and higher and let you leave happy and fulfilled.

_with support from Local Favs TBA soon..
