WINNIPEG WEDNESDAY: FUNK D’VOID [JUNE 7]

funk d'void june 1 2014

FUNK D’VOID was easily the highlight of last year’s Manitoba Electronic Music Exhibition (MEME). His powerhouse set of some sort of bass and techno hybrid blew apart the outdoor stage at The Cube in downtown Winnipeg. It wouldn’t be an understatement to say that every single person who witnessed the free show left with their jaws on the floor. This was easily the best dj set I’ve ever heard/seen. Many in attendance that summer evening would echo this sentiment, including some of the PK Sound techs I spoke to after the show.

The Memetic crew is bringing him back for a show at The Pyramid Cabaret this Saturday and while the venue doesn’t sport a PK rig, it’s arguably the best sounding venue in the city. To be frank, shit’s gonna get wild.

Saturday, June 7
The Pyramid Cabaret (176 Fort Street)

Local support from NATHAN ZAHN, MIKE JASPER, and ALEXANDER KRYGSVELD.

WINNIPEG WEDNESDAY: LEGIT FRIDAYS [MAY 23]

legit fridays

Another installment of Legit:Fridays is upon us this week. The monthly is dedicated to bass music done proper and focuses its frequencies on the underground. You won’t be turned away if you’re wearing neon, but chances are if you’re PLURing out with it, you’ll likely be in the minority.

Friday, May 23 (and every 2nd last Friday of the month)
Ozzy’s (160 Osborne Street)
Tix: $5 before midnight / $10 after
Facebook event page

On the bill this month is GRUDGE, who may or may not let loose the sub bass at 100 bpm. Memetic‘s director NATHAN ZAHN is a house and techno purist so I’m curious as to what he’s going to play. CHRIS KOMUS is a wonderkid of glitch. The last time I heard him play he opened for Stickybuds and the sonics he had in his set were otherworldly. I’m also on the bill and have been building a crate for months for this show. It’s going to go something like this…

WINNIPEG WEDNESDAY: STICKYBUDS [APRIL 26]

stickybuds-winnipeg-april26-2014_WEB

So absolutely stoked to see STICKYBUDS again. The last time he was here he nearly tore the roof off. This trip should be no different, and knowing his Winnipeg show is his last stop on a massive tour, I have no doubt he’s going to give us something special.

Saturday, April 26

Tix: $15 (available here)

WINNIPEG WEDNESDAY: YURI’S NIGHT [APRIL 12]

YurisNightPoster2014 copy

Yuri’s Night is always one of my favourite events of the year. The annual event commemorates the first human spaceflight by cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on April 12, 1961 and the inaugural launch of NASA’s Space Shuttle on April 12, 1981. This year marks the 53rd anniversary of Yuri’s flight into space for which the Manitoba Museum is a proud participant in the global night of art, science, and culture of space exploration.

The dance portion of the party takes place in the museum’s Planetarium which was  upgraded dramatically last year with a Digistar 5 all-dome projector. Last year, the visuals blew my mind so once again, I’m looking forward to seeing what PIXEL PUSHER and FLAMEWAR have in store.

Saturday, April 12
The Manitoba Museum (190 Rupert Avenue)
Tix: $15 SOLD OUT (there may be some available at the door)
Facebook event page

THE SHAKE (LOTEK & MANALOGUE), NATHAN ZAHN, DAVE RAD, and JR provide the soundtrack on this rocket-ride.

Can’t speak for the others but this is one tune I’m going to play.
