MAT THE ALIEN

So versatile, like a bass-music swiss army knife, and so nimble in the mix you can’t even figure out how it’s done - basically he's David Blaine of the turntables. You will not be disappointed. Mat will be playing us a golden era hip hop set.

MAX ULIS - https://soundcloud.com/maxulis

Everyone’s fave curmudgeonly local heavyweight, Max’s unusually sunny disposition recently will be shelved for this darkest of themes. Shoulder pumping, chin-tucking, and feet shuffling are his trademark DJ moves, and his incessant sonic research and development for his original productions and that of his band Sabota justify most of the strange and wonderful things he will make your body do. Expect muscular techno, percussive and latin flavoured sprinklings, and a keen ear for fresh underground material from across the globe.

MANDAI - https://soundcloud.com/mandai

As evinced by the ample slayage left in her wake post-2017 festival season, Mandai is on a serious roll. The first time I witnessed her poise, talent, and frankly ultra-hot flow, I knew I’d found a reliable favourite. Her knowledge of dub, reggae, and dancehall is second to none, and the dedication to tracking new styles and finding ways to interlace them with the roots sound makes it a joy to witness each new set. Her all-vinyl mix releases are her passion, but her current blends include bass, rap, grime, and r’n’b. Do not sleep.

THAT AFRICAN - https://soundcloud.com/that-african

Never to be outgunned in conversation or on the wheels of steel, our man Anton is a staple of genuinely great dancefloor moments. He’s nothing short of chameleon-like in his versatility, and by consistently releasing some of western canada’s finest DJ mixes, has gained a TON of traction. The common thread amongst his selections is quality production and a subtle good-vibe feeling, but never bordering on saccharine or pop. The regional king of spliff-puffing layback mixes is also equally capable of rustling up a peak-hour dance floor. Enjoy his red hair and strange antics for free, once you pay to get in.

NEIGHBOUR - https://soundcloud.com/neighbour-homebreakin

Not much to say about this guy. We are not sure what sort of fella he is. He isn’t either. But if time spent lusting after records, gear, and studio time are any measure of his interest in making asses shake, then he might be pretty, pretty, pretty good.

MAX VOLUME -

Trissy is a fuckin’ legend. If you’ve ever encountered this cat on a dance floor, you’ve been A) impressed by his outfit B) dazzled by fancy moves and C) completely bewildered by his accent. In the past couple years, he’s made waves with unique party concepts and a fun-loving, extremely personal approach to DJing. His sound varies from underground to beachy, trippy tech-house, inspired by artists not so commonly represented in Vancouver’s insular, moody scene.

LVT - https://soundcloud.com/lolavutru

Techno Technician and head honcho of the Bound by Sound parties, it is known that Nikki can rock a dance floor. She has shown her versatility time and again in just about every underground venue in Van, and for one night only night she’ll emerge from the depths to grace us with her talents.

ZDBT - https://soundcloud.com/1800haightstreet

This bearded wunderkid is making all the right moves lately, his latest release on Lobster Theramin as half of 1800haightstreet is a techno classic in the making. Be sure to catch his bone rattling set in the attic.
