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 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.
