Electric Island Toronto Concludes 2016 Season with a 2 Day Showcase

EIToronto3
Torontos’ electronic music picnic and concert series, Electric Island, is set to conclude this Labor Day weekend.  For the first time since its 2013 inception, Electric Island will be spread across two days on Sept. 4th and 5th. The closing weekend will feature an array of acts from the likes of Dixon, Âme (LIVE), Get Real (Green Velvet b2b Claude Von Stroke), Loco Dice, Fatima Yamaha, Nicole Moudaber, Bicep, Guy J, and Justin Martin blending across a series of House and Techno with a splash of Electronic Pop to keep attendees on their toes.

Following the massive success from The Civic Holiday weekend in early August that drew well over 6,000 music lovers and making it one of the most memorable series to date. It is safe to say that the momentum will only carry forward into this weekend as local and international festival-goers will come to celebrate the rise of Toronto’s House & Techno scene, much thanks to the organizer’s relentless effort to push forward on this vision and making the city a bucket list destination for music travelers from around the world for many years to come.

Toronto is a dynamic metropolis with a core of soaring skyscrapers, all dwarfed by the iconic CN Tower. The city also has many green spaces, from the orderly oval of Queen’s Park to 400-acre High Park and its trails, sports facilities and zoo. Toronto is also known for their great local dining options and outdoor/indoor farmer’s market style such as the St. Lawrence Market. You can be sure we’ll be arriving there a few days early to soak up the city vibe before making our way to Queen’s Quay for the closing weekend of Electric Island 2016.

Watch the Music Video for Catz ‘n Dogz New Single

Catz n Dogs Banner

Twerking, french fries, fisherman, cheerleaders, and an equestrian team. Those are just a few things you can expect to see in the “Get It Right” official music video.

Polish duo, Catz ‘n Dogz, are at it again with another superb release on Pets Recordings. Get It Right features the soothing voice of Tanika, while sticking true to their deep garage bass lines and finely polished sounds. From groovy percussion to rich and resonate chord stabs, Get It Right is everything you’d expect from Catz ‘n Dogz.

Stepping in on remix duty is Mr. Dirtybird himself, Claude Von Stroke. With a sound and aesthetic that closely resembles Catz ‘n Dogz, Calude Von Stroke is a clear cut choice to provide his low frequency burning house remix of Get It Right, and he sure does get it right.

Check out the Get It Right official music video to see what Catz ‘n Dogz have in store for everyone.

Get It Right is currently available on Beatport, with the full-length album expected to be released on October 9th.

Dirtybird Campout with Claude Von Stroke & Friends

DB-Campout

Dirtybird label boss, Claude Von Stroke, hinted on his facebook page yesterday that a Camp out gathering is in the near future promising to showcase “All of your favorite DJs in the world”, a bold statement that’s creating a rapid buzz.

Not much has been leaked about what this camp out will entail nor where this will even take place, but speculations are hinting either somewhere in the Bay area (Headquarters) or right here in Southern California as weather could be more favorable in early October.

After seeing success on their world renowned Dirtybird BBQ, it seems the Big Bird is taking ventures beyond his own backyard and in to the wilderness. Keep an eye out for this one, a weekend camp out with Claude Von Stroke and his talented friends sounds quite enticing as one fan’s comment basically summarizes it all….”shut up and take our money”.
