***** Morgan Farrand ******
British Columbia native, Morgan Farrand was involved with some of the earliest BC Festivals including Summer Love. It was there that he began his affection for House Music and in the early 2000s he made a name for himself in Northern California spinning Progressive and Deep House. His style was formed by a mixture of dirty electro sounds coupled with jazzy horn and sax ensembles and with a two year stint in Southern California he added a lighter smoother sound to his repertoire, while still staying true to his electronic roots.
In 2005 he relocated to the bay Area and although he held a residency at an SF wine bar he found himself digging the dirty breakbeats that were big in the Bay Area at the time. From 2008 on, aside from a few mini tours to Tahoe and Mammoth, a long battle with Illness took him out of the game for a number of years. Now he has landed in the PDX and is back on the scene with a well-rounded style of House, Breaks, Ghetto Funk and Downtempo.
From the Black Rock Desert and Lake Tahoe Underground to the Beaches and Clubs of SB to the SF Underground, Morgan has played alongside the like of Rick Preston, Cosmic Selector, Q Burns, Lourob, Micah J (AKA DJ Switch), DJ Jamar, and many other DJ and live acts over the last 15 years.
***** The Funkdealer ******
Arriving to planet earth almost 40 years ago from a galaxy so funky most humans can't even imagine, The Funkdealer (Jason Arthurs) started off as a jazz drummer in early high school and on… but slowly morphed into the world of the dj, as the funk started ruling his life more and more he began to embrace all genres and modes of music creation, always sourcing the top cuts of funk in any given genre of music, blending funk, hiphop, electro, breaks, dub, classic rock, latin and genres that you've never even heard of, doing live mashups, remixes, and scratching. The Funkdealer has shared the stage with WC of Westside Connection, Sweat Shop Union, Mat the Alien and been the dj with local acts True Colours, Shatterproof, Groove Operator.

A night of forward thinking electronic music featuring:
Texture & Light (Powell River)
electronic dream rock
Texture & Light was formed by recovering DJ Trevor Refix as a way to explore live instrumentation, synthesis, and narrative songwriting, while avoiding the common pitfalls of dance music production. Add in Lyell Woloschuk, a hard-hitting drummer with a recording arts degree, and you have an electronic band with fuzzy guitars, hook-laden vocals, a synthesizer fetish, and a drum machine crush.
Texture & Light live shows are bumping, sweaty affairs that feature a mix of live instrumentation and intuitively interconnected hardware in lieu of boring laptops, dazzled up with a custom-synced lighting rig. Whether they are playing a festival main stage or are crammed in a coffee shop, this band goes all the way.
FirewoodPoetry (Salt Spring Island)
Trinity Forbes is a warm hearted girl with a sensitive disposition. She lives on Salt Spring Island, BC. She is told that her music sounds like its own downtempo genre “Lush electronica”. Produced entirely by herself, she performs live with loops from her tracks, a synth, live vocals and a theremin. Always sincere, she reaches deep in every song, to inspire an emotion. She cries at the beauty and loneliness felt everyday. She smiles and faces strangers with admiration and strength. Her music stings with high-hats and punches with kicks. She soothes you with vocals and drowns you with synths.
deep and bouncy tech sweetness
..."It Just Begun" for me in about 1978 when some of my friends and I figured out that if we put a reostat on the motor power line of our old crappy Realistic direct drive turntables we could actually control the pitch of the records and achieve much more extended layering of our favourite Disco and Funk records. Up until that point the most we could do was short drag mixes using our fingers and drop mixes with the records or the pause buttom of our twin tape decks. Little did we know what lay ahead... I was about 14 yrs old at the time...As things progressed into the early 80's I started breakin' and playing the early electro and hip-hop tracks to the crowds that would show up our parties and club nites....As the years went on, from the mid 80's to mid 90's I aquired full-time nitely DJ Residencies at numerous Underground Clubs,as that back then you play everynite/all nite at the Club, I started playing and loving many different stlyes of music, from hip-hop and electro to new wave and punk to industial,acid-house,new beat to house and techno. Through-out the 90's on I have the pleasure of touring as a House/Techno DJ at numerous Raves, Parties and Club nites all over the Canada, The U.S., England, and Europe. I feel blessed to now be well into my third decade of DJing and sharing the soul,
May The Funk Be With U....
