Our friend Adham Shaikh returns to Victoria to debut the most excellent compilation Refractions – wherein the ethno electro dub labs of Kaya Project, Desert Dwellers, Drumspyder, Spoonbill, Xopianoi, Lexifer and Log(M) have been busy reworking the popular global bass release Universal Frequencies by Adham Shaikh to present fresh interpretations of psy, dub, glitch hop, tribal tech, whomp, and ambient vibes.

Big love to the ever-awesome Evan Boyd Photography for the imagery!

Spotlight on Art: Mugwort Lightboxes

When we renovated Sunset Room in October, there were a few wall spaces we just weren’t sure what we were going to do with. One in particular really called out for something special. With our “artist-in-residence” Kristin Urbanheart Grant engaged in other parts of the project, we reached out to our friend Mugwort in Vancouver to explore possibilites.

Over the coming months we sourced & purchased our two favorite ultra-hi-res Ankor Wat images and sent them to Mugwort for digital beautification! When the final art came back to us, we couldn’t get over how stunning they were. We then built 2 beautiful 4′ lightboxes and with some brilliant technical wizardry from our friends at monkeycinteractive.com they were ready to go!

Here, we just share a couple small pieces of one of the boxes – and invite you to check them out in all their glorious detail up close and personal next time you’re at Sunset Room!

LIVE Mix: The Tailor (folk rave!)

On a beautiful May 4th evening the “Raize the Hoof” Tour arrived in Victoria with Lynx, Buckman Coe – and the ever-inspiring (and equally ridiculous) The Tailor! Joining forces to raise funds & awareness for the White Crow Farm Project, these generous and committed musicians packed the dance floor for a long night of bliss. Here is The Tailor’s brilliantly woven contribution to this journey. Enjoy!

Gallery – David Starfire & Govinda

WHAT A NIGHT!! To have the pleasure of seeing David Starfire OR Govinda play a show is a unique and dance-frenzied treat. But to see them BOTH on the same bill in an intimate space like Sunset? WHOA. We knew they wouldn’t hold anything back – and neither did we! We brought in a complete additional sound system; flipped the whole room’s orientation and had everyone play from the new live stages; added superstar Kytami to the lineup.. and sold out the show of course. We might be hard pressed to top that one anytime soon… unless of course Lynx, Tarran the Tailor & Buckman Coe go on tour together anytime soon. ;)

Big props to Eye of the Mind Photography for these amazing captures!
