Event Description

The bonds between Jamaican-rooted music and modern electronic music are evident with an even a cursory comparison between the two. There might be no one bringing Rasta culture to electronic music like the UK jungle legend CONGO NATTY. One of the most recognizable and powerful names in jungle, Congo Natty continues the Jamaican tradition of creating music about perseverance, struggle, and love in the face of injustice. With the belief that jungle is the roots reggae for this new century we find ourselves in, Congo Natty's music is fuelled by the need and pull to bring the principals of Rasta to the people. The music is unrelenting, full of righteous anger and professions of religious fervour, delivered with sweet reggae hooks, deep bass and rapid-fire drum breaks. Congo Natty sets have become the stuff of legend, uniting dancefloors with a purpose like few acts today can. Come see this titan of jungle music debut in Victoria!

Congo Natty will be joined by west coast legend in his own right. For nearly two decades, STICKYBUDS has built a reputation as one of the most storied party-rockers on this planet or any other. A favourite of festivals of all genres around the globe, his sets have delighted electronic music enthusiasts and won over new fans wherever he's gone. His unique blend of funk, drum n' bass, jungle, hip-hop, breaks, glitch-hop and whatever else groovy that grabs his ear, means there's something for almost every music fan when Stickybuds is in control. This is a man who loves Jamaican-rooted music, one of the most knowledgeable ears around and you can expect some incredible deep cuts and fresh mixes brought to you with unmatched style and energy.

Our good friend and one of the most talented DJs our city has seen in years, JENNAY BADGER will also be joining us for this Friday party as she'll kicking things off and keeping our feet moving between and after Stickybuds and Congo Natty. Growing up in the diverse, fertile musical culture that is Vancouver Island, Jennay Badger has a deep knowledge of a seemingly endless array of genres, as well as the ability and creativity to find links between those genres, blending them up however the mood demands.

Featuring visuals from DJ Kinotropy to delight your eyes while the music delights your ears.
