• About Kodak To Graph •
Allured by the pulsing incantations of cassette grain & VHS blips, live instrumentation and other found sound, Kodak To Graph’s Michael Maleki (22) delicately floats listeners through blooming clouds of synth-washes, haunting reverberations, and propulsive rhythms. Maleki’s candle-waxed R&B & flower-trailed soundscapes weave together the nostalgic tones and colors reminiscent of a quiet childhood with the urban bounce and rhythmic disposition of the more modern spirit.

147 East Pender Street. Vancouver
Doors 9pm / 19+

Young Fathers are DEAD. Or, rather, DEAD is Young Fathers. Their first full-length album, released in February, 2014, on Anticon and Big Dada has been given the kind of critical appraisal normally held hidden in the filing cabinets of dusty music journos and only brought out, along with the bottle of fine blended whisky for those special occasions, those special rock occasions. You know the kind, when a credible bunch of guitar, bass and drum twenty-somethings from some northern town in the UK or from Indianapolis USA put something together in the studio that reaches out and reminds everyone that modern life isn’t rubbish. Which is a weird reaction for a group who sit in some non-categorisable space between genres ancient and modern, who take hiphop and pop and dip it in a tie-dye mix of Ronnettes and krautrock and ragga and dub and post-punk and afropsych… and make something, something, something.

• About Matt Pond PA •

It’s a complicated quest, trying to pin down all the different sides that make up Matt Pond PA, but they wouldn’t have it any other way. They have always defied conventional descriptions; perhaps the only way to make sense of it all is to bring the band’s past and future together as one, to let them meet and shake hands.

That’s precisely what they’ve spent the last year chasing. The 10 Year Anniversary Tour of Emblems allowed fans old and new to experience the entire critically acclaimed album from start to end. But it wasn’t just about homage. The tour coincided with a successful Pledge campaign to support the making of their new album, The State of Gold. The new album has the same Matt Pond PA feel that fans know and love, but there’s also an exciting level of experimentation—new sounds and compositions that take things to a different, wilder place.

The upcoming year will follow the same path as the last. The band is planning a 10 Year Anniversary Tour in support of another one of their most beloved albums, Several Arrows Later, as well as releasing The State of Gold to the masses.

The man behind it all, Matt Pond, continues to defy the labels placed on him. Ever-restless and searching, no matter where he is writing from, the music holds one commonality across every album and song—it’s all an effort to communicate. Both in the lyrics and arrangements he creates there is a desire to connect the cognitive harmonies that exist between everyone.

There isn’t a person alive who can escape stumbling over a tree root every now and then. But Matt Pond continues to believe, in music and in people. He knows that accompaniment is key, and in many ways, is the core of what he does. His name on the marquee shouldn’t overshadow the likes of Chris Hansen, Tierney Tough or Shawn Alpay, the band’s current core. And names from the past deserve homage as well, like Jim Hostetter, Eve Miller, Mike Kennedy, Brian Pearl, Dan Crowell, Steven Jewett, Josh Kramer, Dan Ford and so many more. These people have participated in different configurations over the life of the band, but they are still vital to maintaining Matt Pond PA’s place as one of the most unique and prolific bands that exist today.

Madjester

https://soundcloud.com/madjester

I began mixing in 2006, shortly after attending Goa Gil in Chile. After a year on the decks I was able to start playing live, doing various shows in Chile, including the first Monte Mapu festival. From there I have played in Squamish, BC at Alluvium, a prime slot at Vancouver’s Halloween in 2012, Dark Love in Guatemala and rocked it at Monte Mapu again in 2013.

My style ranges from funky Dark Psytrance to HighTech and then Psycore. Bigger, Better, Crazier, Faster! Go all the way, fire up your neurons, break in your stomping legs and get ready to enjoy, The Mad Jester Is Here!

Smiley Mike

https://soundcloud.com/dj-smiley-mike

Dj Smiley Mike was the name given to me by the late 90s underground trance scene in and around Vancouver. By the time I started to DJ in ’94, I had already been frequenting Vancouver’s underground warehouse parties for a few years. Just as it was back then, I have a fierce passion for EDM and especially trance.

In the mid-to-late 90s I became involved with a group loosely known as The Spirit Circle, DJing at various underground parties and outdoor gatherings, many of which were set up in the forests around Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton. My musical taste covered a broad range of trance, but my favourite style is still that middle ground where driving hard, acid-lined trance meets with epic breakdowns and builds.

Goa Pete

https://www.facebook.com/djgoapete

Dj Goa Pete is originally from India, currently based in Vancouver, Canada. Pete is a label Dj for Alchemy Records and promoter for “Goa Trance Mission”, where he organizes indoor parties in Vancouver and an outdoor festival “KARMA”, which is essentially a Goa & Progressive trance dance gathering held in Vancouver, Canada.

Pete visited Goa for the first time in 1989, this became a yearly ritual for him. Visiting Goa for many seasons and hanging out at the Goa parties eventually changed his life completely. His passion for music grew with him and he embarked upon a quest, eventually moving to Goa with his equipment and taking up a guest house on the beaches of Goa and making parties.

In 2001, Pete moved from Goa to Vancouver, hence he became famous as “Goa Pete”. With blissed and relaxed energy on stage, Pete has captivated party goers with his track selection. His sets are very uplifting that have no limits or boundaries delivering pure trance experiences to the dance floors, elevating there consciousness to a state of unity. Enjoy the beautiful art of sonic alchemy.

Glideform

https://www.facebook.com/GlideForm

British Columbia serves home to three nineteen year olds; an inspiring, trance-influenced electro house trio, known to the world as GlideForm. Made up of melodic house producer, Harris McDonald, rising prodigy Caydin Sitinjak and trance-mega, Devin Belanger, the trio began producing in late 2011, with a dream for the world to hear their music. Over 2 years later, still strong, GlideForm has just begun the streak of things to come. In late 2012, GlideForm received a deal with Soviet Recordings for their tracks, Lights Go Out & Cancun. Few months down the road, they would also receive a deal from Big Finale Recordings for their track, Reborn; however, things would only just begin to change soon.In mid-2013, Ordinance Records found GlideForm, and the rest would be glorious from there. GlideForm would suit up with their release, Fake ID, alongside Vancouver brother, Aesthetik. This release gained support from Big Fishs Ryan Enzed & more. Shortly hereafter, GlideForm would be picked up on Finale Management, the new booking & management agency from Atlanta, Georgia & Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, soaring bookings and deals for GlideForm, and Harris & Devin individually for the rest of their future. Whats expected for GlideForm in the upcoming months? New huge releases, amazing shows, & so much more. Keep on the look out!

soundcloud.com/sneijder | twitter.com/sneijdermusic

Tipped in DJ mag by John O’Callaghan, ”Im tipping this guy to be massive” and praised by trance legend Paul van Dyk ”An extremely exciting talent” Sneijder has not disappointed. Traveling the world on a regular basis and featuring on the same lineups as the worlds best, it didn’t take the Irish DJ/Producer long to become one of the most talked about prospects on the scene. Now a regular fixture on all the top name playlists, Sneijder continues to go from strength to strength. Gaining heavy support his sound global.

Known for his trademark sound, a fusion of uplifting and tech trance, Sneijder is fast becoming one of the most in demand artists in the trance scene. Already notching up an impressive 4 Beatport top tens and featuring on countless compilation albums such as ‘Armin van Buuren – A State Of Trance 2013? ‘John O’Callaghans Subculture’ ‘Gatecrasher Anthems Mixed by Paul van Dyk’ ‘ATB In The Mix’ ‘The Official ASOT550 CD’ & more. Completing a series of chart topping remixes for Armin van Buuren, John O’Callaghan, Solarstone, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Betsie Larkin & Andain, has put the Sneijder name firmly amongst the worlds trance elite. Playing all over the globe each week to thousands of fans in countries such as Australia, Argentina, UK, Scotland, Ireland, Egypt, Poland. Spain, USA, Mexico, Canada & featuring at the worlds largest trance event, ASOT600 Den Bosch, Holland.

It all started as a 13year old bedroom DJ, playing Dutch hardcore and travelling to Holland on a regular basis to buy exclusive records. It was while on these trips his passion for dance music grew and became an obsession. Over the years his sound progressed and moved into more psy/hard trance around 1996 and then in 1999 he fell in love with uplifting trance. Playing at various clubs and events in Ireland for some years and also being nominated for ‘Best New DJ’ in the ‘N.Ireland Dance Music Awards’, Sneijder’s passion for music was clear from the start.

Spending some time as a club DJ, it wasn’t until 2009 that Sneijder decided to learn the art of music production; it was a decision that would change things forever. After only 4 months producing he made his debut track ‘The Phuture’ which received support from Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, John O’Callaghan, Eddie Halliwell & more .. Later that year Sneijder completed his first uplifting trance track ‘Away From Here’, it was quickly snapped up by Paul van Dyk’s Vandit imprint and was one of the most talked about tracks of the year, and has featured on no less than 15 major compilations to date. Soon after a string of hits followed, which put his name firmly amongst the A-Listers of trance. Over the last few years Sneijder has built up an impressive back catalogue of tracks and remixes on labels such as Armada, Black Hole, Subculture, Kearnage, Spinnin, FSOE, Vandit and also features in every major DJ’s record box’s and radioshow’s on a weekly basis.

With an ever growing loyal online fan base Sneijder showcases his music to his fans via his monthly radioshow ‘Distant World’, aired on Afterhours.FM & his monthly podcast, titled ‘The Sneijder Podcast’ available via iTunes. Both portals keep his fans and followers up to date with all his recorded sets, exclusive studio material and music which is currently featuring in his live performances.

Sneijder plays a blend of uplifting & tech trance and has been described by many as an extremely versatile dj who can play across the board, this shines through in both his dj sets and in his studio productions. If you haven’t heard the Sneijder sound yet, it won’t be long until you do !

The Solid Stone project started back in early 2010, behind it the Canadian producer started to make his mark. His very first releases were already supported by likes of Above and Beyond, Markus Schulz to name a few. After he was settled in with his own sound, it became clear that Solid Stone would be a name to look out for in the near future.

Having almost all of his recent productions championed by Armin Van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Max Graham and pretty much all of the Trance elite, Solid Stone is making some real waves over the past year, showing how promising he really is and looks set for a huge future!
