Come dance your pants off for a good cause! Youth Unleashing Power is Canada’s first and only national symposium created by and for HIV / HCV positive youth. All funds raised from this event support travel costs for positive youth to attend the symposium. Over the past year and a half, #PODO has raised roughly $2500!!

For more information about the symposium and how you can help, check out http://www.youthunleashingpower.ca or chat with Piotr + Sarah at the event!

PANTS OFF DANCE OFF is a body+ event and is inspired by and in homage to the No Pants No Problem (http://jessicawhitbread.com/project/no-pants-no-problem/ ) parties that are held in support of women with HIV and have grown to international fame.

For our 4th Edition, we are bringing you a headliner we fell in love with at BassCoast and just had to share with you! ♥

GHOSTWHIP (Philthtrax, Nelson BC)

As half owner / operator of Philthtrax Records this artist’s sole mission is to revamp booty music for today’s dance floors without losing the raw appeal of the 90’s.

Turntable sets consist of classic ghetto house and a new breed of booty of which he is an integral part of of. His own tracks are a modern take on Detroit’s ghettotech sound; prominent four-on-the-floor drum patterns, bubbly percussion and a healthy dose of R&B.

DJ TigRess (Victoria)

TigRess got her first taste of playing live when she stepped up to play a New Year's party in Kelowna in 2013. Playing alongside 5 accomplished DJ's, she quickly showed her natural prowess with her flavourful taste in music selection. As the dance floor filled up it was clear this tiger had earned her stripes. She was hungry for more and sunk in her teeth, securing a regular club night in Kelowna before moving to Victoria in 2014. Since that time, she’s been refining her craft while playing shows in Vancouver and private parties in Victoria. She also held a resident DJ slot on Funky Beatz Radio in the UK for 3 months. A fierce music lover, she brings contagious energy and joy with her when she’s lighting up a dance floor. TigRess is always on the hunt for that new sound and brings you the best of house, bass, tech-House and techno with a touch of Sass.

SPILLY WILLY (Victoria)

He's on a life-long musical odyssey, and all he wants to do is bring you along. A lifetime of festivals and shows has given Spilly Willy a deep passion for dancing and music curation. Usually found tearing up dance floors, it was a bush-rave in 2006 where he decided playing dance music was his true calling - since then he’s been DJing any chance he can get. From disco to house, glitch to psy, downtempo, funk, and even pop... if it’s got flow, melody, and bass: he’s on it.
