Rowan :: Sunset Labs, Full Moon Medicine
Degree in hand, Rowan packed his turntables and records into an old Volvo and followed his heart West, to Victoria BC. Ten years later and he still has that spark for outright awesome House Music! An experienced crate digger from his humble days DJing in a basement, the format has changed but the goal remains the same: to find you irresistible musical gems. From the fun to the funky, bassy and wompy, rhythmic and epic; Rowan create's sonic journeys layered with exotic textures, hypnotic rhythms and soulful melodies during his sets. His commitment to movement continues to see him inspire dance floors and be a recurring act on the North West festival circuit playing at Oregon Eclipse, Atmosphere, and Diversity. He helped birth the Full Moon Medicine dances, now in its 10th year, where he continues to deepen his devotion for ecstatic dance floor experiences. By day, Rowan is the co-owner and Musical Director of Bellyfit Enterprises handling music sourcing, licensing, compiling of tracks used by hundreds of instructors and synced to videos watched by thousands of women worldwide. Best come hungry for delicious beats and ready to move, as with Rowan on the decks you will have no choice but to let go, give in and enjoy the ride of where the music and beats take you.
German Mike :: PLA
German Mike also known as Mike Arensen is one of the pioneering members of Victoria's House and Techno DJ scene. As far as Victoria DJ lore goes, he was right there at the very beginning, getting his start around 1990, spinning vinyl alongside names like Rennie Foster, Brent Carmichael and Lori The Hi Fi Princess at venues like Rumours and the underground PLA parties. His influences include early Acid House, and you can quote him as saying that Lil Louis' "French Kiss" blew his mind (as it still does ours). As time passed and clubs names changed from the likes of Rumours to the Limit to Hush Mike became a headlining act known to push techno and house when not many did. Further helping shape Victoria's DJ scene, Mike was one of the original founders of the original Victoria Electronic Music Festival(VEMF) in 2001. Having played a multitude of shows over the years, Mike's ability to convey an underground sound that is both rhythmic and highly danceable remains to be impressive. Bring your dancing shoes, and be ready to move, as German Mike's underground sound you just can't miss.
Andrew Dunn :: Gorg-O-Mish
A Victoria native, Andrew’s passion for electronic music emerged during an impromptu move to Vancouver in 2010 for the Winter Olympics. Spending countless hours frequenting one of the city’s best after hour establishments, Gorg-O-Mish, local and international DJs slowly influenced Andrew’s immense thirst for powerfully emotive and musical journeys. With a dedicated and careful attention to detail, Andrew’s sets will invigorate your after hours appetite for long nights on the dance floor.
Christoph :: Short Fuse
Christoph's sets are funky, uplifting, groovy and often kick your ass onto the dance floor and won't let you leave. An electric performer, he was a Hush resident DJ for almost it's entire existence (2002 - 2014) and studied house players like DJ Dan and Rennie Foster to learn the tricks of the trade. We could easily name some impressive accomplishments: DJ competition winner, record label owner, nightclub resident(Lucky, Hush, Deep, Level) and promoter, producer, music curator for parades and events, headliner at venues like Plaza of Nations, APEX, Lotus Nightclub, and in cities like Calgary, Seattle, Dallas while sharing stages with the biggest and best but it's just secondary to what you need to know. Few DJs work harder to make you dance. This DJ knows to get your ass shaking and keep the party going all night! His sound traverses funk'd up house rhythms, G-house samples and garage bass lines. Having played more than 500 shows on Vancouver island, Christoph's performances have been the highlight of many. So come get your butts wigglin!More Event Details
