We're back for our annual spring showcase and this time we are bringing NEIGHBOUR, ESETTE & PHATCAT along to provide some serious vibes!
NEIGHBOUR (HOMEBREAKIN RECORDS): Neighbour is no stranger to Canada’s dance music scene and has been seen rocking the country's dance music scene for decades. His sets are chocked full of amazing original disco and often punctuated with his live guitar. Every time we see this wizard behind the decks we are reminded of why his name is so often seen on line ups across the continent. We could not be more excited to be bringing this staple of our country's scene to our small little party.
ESETTE (SUBSTATION RECORDINGS): Whether it is behind the decks, or co-producing the Alberta Electronic Music Conference, Esette’s love for dance music shines through. Her sets are beautiful journeys through new and refreshing sounds that always have us checking our phones for the song id. She has been an integral part of the Calgary scene for years and we cannot wait for her to school Residents with that knowledge!
PHATCAT (FUTURE ROOTS RECORDS):
Phatcat, the founder of Future Roots, Edmonton’s longest running organizer of underground bass music events is well known for his lifelong contributions to Edmonton's music community. Mixing vinyl from an early age kept him on the warriors path following bass music through all its emotional and technological iterations. Constantly exploring the changing cross fade between Drum & Bass/Jungle, Garage, Grime, Dub, and Techno is his mission, and evolving new sounds while never forgetting the roots of Rave are the hallmark of his sweat inducing sets, punctuated with a evolving stew of his own productions.
