Hi Karate / Futuristic Funk / Czech Republic

It’s a standard formula for world domination and DJ Czech is sticking to it well.
First, control you own neighborhood, Czech’s initial step into the Canadian underground scene was introducing “Soul Kitchen” to Whistler, British Columbia, Canada’s top ski and snowboard destination. That was 1989, Whistler has grown to one of the top sports destinations in the world and Soul Kitchen is still cooking up beats, making it the longest-running club night in Western Canada.
Next, Czech infiltrated the thriving new music scene in Vancouver, BC, and his unique flavour of breaks, turntablism, and comic personality earned him legendary residencies at all of the city’s hottest nightclubs and helped establish VanCity’s reputation for up front electronic music. Meanwhile Czech had ensured himself household name status on the West Coast, particularly amongst breaks lovers.
Third step- the world. Somehow balancing his residencies with a ridiculous touring schedule Czech has been turning out prestigious clubs and massive raves every single weekend for the last 15 years. He’s carted his records throughout Europe, North America and Asia and headlined alongside premier acts such as The Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, Parliment,Orbital, Crystal Method, De La Soul ,Rabbit in the Moon, Porno for Pyros, and countless world renowned Dj’s.
And to round it off, Czech has been writing and producing his own tracks since WHEN?__, continuously building his studio and releasing music on “Futuristic Funk Records,” which he co-owns and uses to proudly showcase other Canadian talent as well as his own material.
These days Czech primarily spins Break Beats with touch of Electro but he has been known to drop all old-school 45 funk sets out of the blue and pepper them with some down-home mid tempo breaks, just to make sure you’re paying attention.
What I like most about Czech is not his unrivalled history on the scene, his numerous key accomplishments, or his worldwide appeal. I like him because sometimes when you go visit him in the club, he’ll toss on a looped record of the Joker laughing, just laughter no music, and light a cigarette and talk to you about whatever pops into his head until the dance floor starts throwing ice, glasses, and insults at him, demanding more beats. After a minute or two, usually when the audience is at a near-frenzy levels and the cigarette is getting down, Czech will thank you for dropping in, order you a drink, and get back to work.


Palletz has been hittin Vancouver Island with with serious noise since his start in late 2010, throwing down in cities all over the island at various clubs, raves, house parties, festivals and at pretty much anything calling for music and a dance crowd.

He started his musical journey at age 12 with the saxophone, and took on drumming a couple years later, playing various wind and percussion instruments as well as studying musical theory. With a musical background of 10 years and playing anything from jazz to rock to reggae to metal, you can expect nothing less when he resides on the decks mashing styles, and basslines. In 2007 he experienced his first electronic show and was instantly hooked. Not wanting to be just another bedroom DJ he immediatly started developing his unique style that can only be descirbed as filthy.

In 2010 combining forces with MrMacHimself, they make "The GoodfellaZ" They soon landed a Bi-Monthly residency at Hush Nightclub (Victoria, BC) With the high energy these boys produce you will never be able to stop grooving!

Sean Sanity

There is little we can say about Sean Sanity that describe his Perfectionist Style of Music. Ghettofunk and Breaks being a true love, but when you get this guy in the groove, the Drum n' Bass will be something you remember. Playing at a festival called "Sound Clash of the Titans" (Squamish 2011) Sean Sanity laid down 2 sets that earned him "Sets of the Weekend". That is just how good he really is. If this is the first you are hearing of Sean Sanity, it certainly won't be the last. Make sure you check him out, he definitely knows how to make the Speakers Swell.
