VIBRATE at Copper Owl
We're very excited to have our first guest Nathan Jonson joining the Vibrate crew at Copper Owl for a night of quirky techno, spicy electro and whatever the heck else we feel like playing. VIBRATE aims to create a comfortable and safe space to enjoy electronic music, a place to share new music and explore new sounds, and a chance for up and coming DJs to rinse their tunes. All are welcome.
Tickets -- $10 at the door

Following a decade of producing and DJing as Hrdvsion, Nathan Jonson steps out under his birth name to mark a new stage in his career.
When you have explored as many styles as Hrdvsion did - everything from beatless, ambient tracks to rugged club cuts or pop bootlegs - there isn’t so much new ground to break. The switch of alias isn’t about doing something different but just about being open, honest and direct.
That said, with time Jonson’s need to challenge the norm has eased and his boundlessly experimental streak has become more focused. His impressive discography, spread across labels such as Wagon Repair, Balkan Recordings, Rinse and International Deejay Gigolo, hints at a producer who has valued diversity above all. His records have long been turned to by DJs right across the board, always guaranteeing them a striking and unusual sound. Now, without the pressure to surprise and re-invent, Jonson can go deeper into his craft and pinpoint what it is that linked his output over the years.
Big Body is a long time Victoria DJ spinning house, techno, electro, 140, 160, you name it. Evolving from the feistier days of electro bangers, Big Body's sound has matured into a more European take on techno and house. Constantly digging through new music, Ian's most excited to use VIBRATE as a venue to share his newest tunes and turn them up loud.
Jesse is making his debut at VIBRATE. One half of Victoria's Voyages.fm, Jesse's driven by a tribal, melodic and psychedelic sound. We can't wait to hear what he's got.
