If you haven’t come across John B in one of his many musical guises over the past decade, where have you been? This British super-producer has gone on to become one of the most eclectic and unique individuals working within electronic music today. Consistently escaping categorization, John’s genre-defying catalog spans the worlds of Electro, PunkRock, Trance and Drum & Bass, and a few other spaces across the bpm spectrum.

Establishing his own stable of labels (Beta Recordings, Tangent, Chihuahua and Nu_Electro) to reflect his diverse tastes from liquid funk to Latin, provided the perfect platform for John’s groundbreaking sonic experimentation to develop. From his studio and label HQ in Maidenhead, UK, John has since made major waves within the wider world of dance music. Having picked up on John’s early forays into trance production, Perfecto label boss and DJ superstar Paul Oakenfold commissioned tracks which ended up alongside the likes of Madonna and Justin Timberlake on the epic “Great Wall” compilation. John has also long worn his love of 80s electronica on his sleeve, way before the fashionistas jumped on the bandwagon. He’s been busy signing hot new electro-influenced tracks for his most recent label venture, Nu Electro & has had support from electrohouse scene favourites such as Larry Tee, Mark Moore & Tommie Sunshine.

John B has managed to secure himself a truly global following, largely thanks to the power of the Internet and a whole host of exciting & original music. It has to be said that John B was definitely one of the first electronic artists to truly acknowledge and make good use of the Internet’s marketing power: http://www.john-b.com includes everything from his very own personal blog style diary to exclusive upfront audio, videoblogs and outrageous tour photos & make-up/glamour shots. John B’s last promo mix was downloaded in excess of 150,000 times. It’s also important to notice John’s B’s use of the MySpace phenomenon, John B was way ahead of the crowd on this one too! John B’s profile has been viewed nearly 2,000,000 times. Be sure to listen to John B’s ‘Stalking You On MySpace’ for the full story! http://www.myspace.com/johnbbeta.



Shiftee - 2009 World DMC Champion - NYC ( Dub step, DNB )
http://djshiftee.com/

Late in 2010 we brought dj Shiftee to the Island and I can honestly say that he was one of the most amazing dj's I have ever seen. If you are into mad turntable bass music trickery you will not want to miss his return to Victoria.

New York City’s Shiftee has translated his intuitive math geek mentality into far-reaching success on the turntables, electrifying crowds from NYC to London to Hong Kong. With a degree from Harvard, 2 unique DMC World Champion titles, an NYU professorship, and an ongoing international tour schedule, this overachiever can only be positioned for greatness. Who says you can’t do it all?

On Sept. 12, 2009, DJ Shiftee represented the USA in the 2009 DMC World DJ Finals. He took the title, was automatically inducted into the DMC DJ Hall of Fame and brought the fabled gold Technics turntables back to NYC! This new title places his name along side over 20+ legendary DMC World Champs including Craze, A-Trak, Cash Money, Rock Steady DJs (Apollo, Mix Master Mike & Q-Bert), Plus One of Jack Beats, and the late Grand Master Roc Raida
titles and awards: …2009 DMC WORLD CHAMPION, 2007 DMC Supremacy WORLD CHAMPION, 2008 IDA/ITF Finals WORLD VICE CHAMPION, 2009 DMC USA CHAMPION, 2007 DMC Supremacy USA CHAMPION, 2009 DMC EAST COAST CHAMPION, 2004 Guitar Center NY/NJ CHAMPION, 2003 DMC Regional NYC CHAMPION, 2003 ITF Regional EAST COAST CHAMPION


Spilly G's - Whitebird / Bombstrikes - BC

The spilly g's a.k.a Cole Magnusson ( Dj Generic ) and Steve Robertson ( Neon Steve ) are two of the Island's most talented and successful dj's. Playing a diverse mix of just about everything you can expect top notch beats from the minute the doors swing open.
