FRIDAY AUGUST 17th 2012
SUNSET LABS PROUDLY PRESENTS!
Ooze System | Northern California
Mr. Rogers' brain is a fun place to visit, but you might not want to stay for too long lest you get stuck in the intricate, syncopated pulse that oozes from it. Mr. Rogers connects with dancefloors instantly with his totally unique style. His signature sound seeps out of every beat per minute, and latches onto your primal dance button. Mr. Rogers sounds have long captivated the West Coast underground arts community, but now the secret is out and this pioneering producer is poised to conquer the far reaches of the dance floor with his twisted, psychedelic take on bass-heavy midtempo, and glitch-ridden breaks. Following the success of multiple releases on his own label, Ooze System Recordings, and a 4 month long tour across over 40 cities in North America, Mr. Rogers has since been in the studio crafting a whole slew of new material. Mr. Rogers has been slurped up behind the console in almost every state in the U.S. and all over Canada, while his beats have bounced faces off crowds at almost every major music festival on the West Coast including Shambhala, EMRG+N+SEE, Alchemeyez, Esthetic Evolution, The Big Bounce, Priceless, Stilldream, Raindance, Astral Harvest, Symbiosis Gathering, Burning Man and many more.

Space Age, originally from Edmonton, AB grew up with a love and appreciation for all types of music and genres. Transforming this love to DJing, he developed a eclectic style fusing sexy, ethnic, and soulful sounds together combined with technical mixing. His diverse sets range from sultry bellydance and downtempo chill, to dancefloor shaking dubstep and elegant psytrance. With a little something for everyone, Space Age will always get the dancefloor moving. A pioneering member of the Techno Hippy Crew, Astral Harvest, and Vibe Tribe's official bellydance DJ, Space Age has played at some of Edmonton and Calgary's biggest shows including: Beats Antique, Dehli 2 Dublin, Bassnectar, Skream, Freq Nasty, Rusko, Caspa, Glitch Mob, Freestylers, Kush Aurora, Juakali and David Starfire.

FLORIAN :: Sunset Labs, Audio Planet | Victoria
[tech-funk, crunkstep, glitch-hop]
It was a dance party in an industrial zone of Vancouver that was Florian's introduction to electronica, and he immediately knew he wanted to get involved with the scene. Quickly thereafter he was getting involved in all sorts of events, from indoor shows to multi-day outdoor festivals including Shambhala, In:Vision, Diversity, and Entheos. When Florian was 16, he began investigating the alchemy of beats, basslines and melody -- seeking the transformative quality they hold on a dancefloor with the potential to unify each person into the interactive whole. He's studied the domains of dub, breaks, glitch, trance, and house in all it's forms with great dilligence, and now uses these modules to deliver a potent blend of sonic bliss that draws each individual into the dancefloor experience. Climbing the ranks from partier, to waste management, to harm reduction, to event planning, Florian is now a budding producer, promoter, and manager of Sunset Room - Victoria's only all hours dance venue. Stay tuned for lots more from this committed & growing addition to the BC scene!
