Based out of Brooklyn, the prolific Canadian producer Bit Funk dropped a refresh of one of my favorite all time jams today – ATCQ’s 1nce Again (produced by the late legend J Dilla). Bright pianos over a springtime groove, get it for the low price of zero dollars.
Catch him in Vancouver at the Electric Owl March 30 alongside yours truly.

For the past couple of months Rollie has been teasing us with tweets about new music, even dropping a Grimes collaboration that blew my musical mind. It’s now been confirmed that he will drop ‘Hope in Dirt City’, the follow up to 2008’s critically acclaimed ‘Afterparty Babies’, on May 29.
Look out for collaborations with Doldrums and Buck 65, as well as a sound that departs from his latest mixtape ‘Tron Legacy’. According to a recent press release, ‘Hope in Dirt City’ is a “clearly defined and emotionally mature statement of intent” which will see Rollie bring hip-hop back to its roots. Well, I guess if anyone can do its him.
In support of the album, Cadence will be hitting up the Electric Owl on June 22. In the mean time check out two of his latest tracks “Loft Party” and “Crew Up”.

Let’s face it, January freaking blows. Pastels are out of season, dogs are dressed up in tiny little outfits for brief walks on the Seawall, and those dreaded UGGS are in full force. Before you go rediscovering your emo adolescence, I’ve got some news that is sure to blow your mind. Timbre Concerts and WinnieCooper.net present HOUSSE DE RACKET on Thursday, April 5 at the Electric Owl.
Before trading gangster tales with Dr.Dre and Snoop Dogg at Coachella, this pop-rock duo from Paris will head down to Vancouver in support of their latest release “Alesia”.

Next Friday we have a special treat from Portland, Dj Anjali and The Incredible Kid at the Electric Owl.
The two spearhead the bhangra and Bollywood scene in Portland through their Andaz night, Portland’s longest-running monthly party at 9 years and counting. They also hold a new monthly residency in Seattle and were one of the highlights of this years Sasquatch Festival where they played every night.
Also playing a Congolese Rumba and Soukous music dance band of African refugees, Okapi Muzika and Hyenas Djs (members of the group Basketball).
Advance tickets are available here.
Comprised of Amika Akaya and Austin Wedvick, these L.A producers/Dj’s have a coveted spot at Teddy’s and the Hollywood W Hotel, where they regularly spin for the celebrity gong show of young Hollywood. The Tribe plays original music and their own remixes of songs from Local Natives to Radiohead.
The Tribe of Zebras are getting blog love as “an awesome deviation from the norm” and described as “a two man army bent on world motivation…they’ll do it by partying your ass off.”
The Tales website announces ”you never know who’s going to appear in the crowd at a Tribe of Zebras show.” Which is pretty exciting, because I’m really hoping for Kevin Costner, preferably in his Waterworld wardrobe, but I think I may be alone in that.
“Tales from a Bar Stool” are self described as “Sassy true stories told by SA & WT, two champagne drinking, high heel wearing, free spirited single girls from the perch of a bar stool.”
I usually scoff and make “ya right” faces at Cosmo and other “lady mags” in the supermarket line-up, then ninja grab one and hide it under my groceries. But I can vouch that these ladies, although occupying a “cosmo-esque” genre, are talented writers and their “tales” are enthralling, and not in the “I really need to know what 101 things I need to do in bed with a sandwich and a black light to make my man happy” kind of way.
Also, dudes, take note, the “Tales from a Barstool” advice is not only female-centric, they write about their social interactions and deliver a verdict on what lessons they learned from the experience. Usually when I go to restaurants I have my head down and remain focused on my spin dip, but these ladies get table-crashed by the New Kids on the Block and learn life lessons while doing it.
Tales from a Bar Stool are encouraging their readers and Tribe of Zebra’s fans to come out to the Vancouver show and “create your own tale”…..Which I am taking as a personal challenge as the Electric owl is the perfect venue for non-spinich dip related evenings. The Owl’s brand new expansive modern space has brick walls, polished concrete floors, intimate booths, a huge dancefloor, two bars and a full kitchen serving “japanese style snacks prepared by a Vietnamese chef in an izakaya-inspired room.”
