Let’s Get Jucy! May 2017

CALGARY – Apologies for last month’s lack of a column to all of you who were distraught and suddenly felt an unexplainable void in your life in the wake of its absence. Here’s hoping we can just move forward and start to put the pieces back together. Here is the next column and it’s gonna be not only May, but also really lit. Maybe have a flame retardant blanket handy.

Starting things off with a high-tempo bang, Electric Disco present Temple of Boom featuring drum and bass legends Ed Rush & Optical, Friction and an exciting new jack on the scene Voltage. Gotta love these big triple bookings! Yet another testament to the overall excellence of Calgary’s D’N’B scene. #blessed

May 11 you can catch Addison Groove at Habitat. This artist was formerly known as Headhunter, one of the pioneers of the sound. Under the new’ish moniker, he plays the sounds that influenced him later in his dubstep days like Chicago juke and acid house. Booty bouncin’ shit, is all you really need to know.

The following day you can catch L.A.’s Wuki, representing Diplo’s Mad Decent records and will be spinning club-friendly breaks, house and booty bass for your dancing pleasure.

Two of traps biggest juggernauts ATLiens and UZ will be rumbling through the Hifi Club on May 13.

Also on the 13, over at Commonwealth, is NYC’s Princess Nokia: a rising star in the new school of R&B and hip-hop. A great chance to check out some fresh and exciting new talent and simultaneously turn the fuck up.

On May 21 at Hiifi, Stööki Sound brings their fresh take on bass music back to Calgary, this time partnering up with another of UK’s best Joker. The former is credited with creating the tripped-out, ecstasy inducing “purple” sound of dubstep and, if I’m not mistaken, the last two time he was scheduled to play here, he was forced to cancel due to Visa issues. Fingers crossed for this time ‘round!

Closing out the month is the return of Versions, a family friendly dance party that brings the sounds of underground techno into the sunny skies of Broken City’s lovely patio. “Curated for good vibes only,” says organizer of the now four-year-old event Isis Graham, A.K.A. Esette, who will be playing alongside some of the city’s veterans and newcomers alike.

Keep on dancin’ my glittery amigos! Catch me in June, how bow dah?
