KENNY GLASGOW (Toronto)
Kenny Glasgow is a North American electronic music pioneer, a role he’s held for over two decades. As a solo DJ and producer, and as one-half of the acclaimed duo Art Department, Kenny has released influential full lengths, headlined major festivals and graced the cover of taste making magazines, building on a cult and loyal following dating back to the early nineties! His origins in the Toronto scene began with warehouse parties and residencies at acid house mecca The Buzz and later the world famous Industry Nightclub.
With over two decades of experience in the house and techno industry, Canadian artist Nitin Kalyan has established himself as a highly skilled and polished DJ on the global touring circuit. His story begins with Detroit, as the sounds of the Motor City emanated through his radio growing up in London, Ontario, which left an indelible imprint and inspired him to pursue a career in music. Record shopping in Detroit led to a meeting with Mike Huckaby and Nitin subsequently playing the legendary club Shelter at the age of 17.
From throwing parties in his hometown, to relocating to Toronto in 2005, Nitin bolstered his DJ skills with regular gigs and became a prominent promoter in both London and Toronto. Shortly after, he was not only touring across much of North America, but also began making visits to Europe, and now plays frequently at some of the globe’s most legendary clubs, including DC-10 (Ibiza), Panorama Bar (Berlin), Fabric (London, UK), Output (NYC), Warung (Brazil), Stereo (Montreal) and Nordstern (Basel).
Along with his dynamic DJ sets, Nitin also runs the highly regarded record labels No. 19 and Social Experiment with Art Department’s Jonny White. The labels are renowned for their forward thinking, avant-garde takes on house and techno, signing music from both established artists as well as nurturing new talent. As a producer, Detroit’s influence remains present in Nitin’s sound, with some of his recent original productions and remixes coming out on My Favorite Robot, Leftroom, and of course, his own imprint No.19.
JAY TRIPWIRE (Vancouver, Live Performance)
Always sitting slightly off-centre, Jay Tripwire is an artist that walks the line as industry staple and ever changing innovator. Tripwire has over 25 years under his belt professionally as a DJ and has toured extensively for 20 years with gigs taking him to over 200 cities worldwide. A sometimes resident at Mr. C's legendary SuperFreq parties and a regular contributor to the label, some of the notable Label parties have been at BPM festival, NYC for Resolute, Alec Baldwins 63rd birthday, and of course Fabric in London. Jay Has played many of the worlds top clubs, ones that are current, ones that only older people would know and many underground spots that didn't have a fancy name- just sweaty walls. With early vinyl releases cementing his place as an originator Jay has released over 300 vinyl records and hundreds of digital projects, charting in the Beatport top 100 since 2014 every single month. Currently he has been exploring working at different tunings using 432 and 528 and writing things with certain healing frequencies in mind and his last full length album titled "8channels" was the first outing in this new direction. July 29 is a special event as Jay Tripwire debuts his live PA on Vancouver Island.
RIGHTEOUS RAINBOWS OF TOGETHERNESS (Victoria, Live Performance)
The Righteous Rainbows of Togetherness are a live techno act that defies explanation. These two intergalactic wizards weave bass, beats and melodies that inspire carbon lifeforms to shake. The live show is dominated by colourful dance troops and a feeling of inclusion that makes all feel welcome and uninhibited to get loose. The underground duo have performed together for over a decade.
THOM BANKS (Victoria)
