May Long Weekend is fast approaching us, and what better way to spend your guilt-free Sunday night than at Fortune Sound Club with two rising musical stars.
After a mesmerizing show at Fortune Sound Club last January, electronic-artist Kastle will be returning to Vancouver with Montreal-based sensation Kaytranada on May 19. Kastle’s forward-thinking music results from his long-time love of hip-hop and R&B, fused with the magnetizing effect that garage, house, dubstep and bass-heavy music has had on him. Kastle’s unique fusions will fit nicely with Kaytranada’s modern take on the luscious sounds of 90′s r/b.
This night will also feature performances by local acts 8PRN and Blue Version. While early bird tickets are sold-out, advanced tickets can still be purchased online or in-person at Zulu, Red Cat, Highlife, and Beatstreet recrods.
For a chance to win a pair of tickets, email winnieguestlist(@)gmail.com with your name by Friday, May 17th at 5:00pm. You must be attending the Facebook event page and ‘like‘ Winnie Cooper on Facebook to qualify. 19+ only. Please Use “Long Weekend Contest” as the subject line.
LA producers OKIDOG team up with Manhattan based beat-maker Lashington to bring us this dynamic future garage remix of Ray J’s classic hit One Wish. Filled with deep bass, melodic synth stabs, organic percussive sounds and intricate vocal work the latest tune from OKI & LASH is a perfect listen on repeat, in the mix, or on the dance-floor.

Are production teams the new boy bands? Storming their way from DJ secret weapon to every relevant music outlet on the internet to the #2 spot on the UK Singles chart, it seems dismissive of the Lawrence brothers’ already impressive portfolio to label them so… but every revolution needs a name.
The teen wunderkinds are bringing their live show to the West Coast for Sasquatch. And stop calling it postdubstep.

Since bursting onto the scene last year, East Londoners Waze & Odyssey have quickly become a go-to for DJs from Istanbul to Ibiza. Their shuffly, 90s-sounding grooves evocative of 4am warehouse raves have found their way into the crates of BBC Radio One jocks such as Pete Tong, Skream and Benga, and Annie Mac. One of my all-time memories behind the turntables was getting to drop this to a very enthused Peaches’ dance crew in Barcelona last July.
With acts such as Disclosure and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs bringing back classic garage and house influences into the public consciousness, this duo is poised to continue pacing the field.
