DEADMAU5' lots of shows in a row: pt 2 tour [oct13]

evenko, Greenland and Festivalma present deadmau5 on October 13 at the Bell Centre and on October 14 at the Centre Multisport Alma.

This past spring, electronic music producer deadmau5 launched his 'lots of shows in a row' tour with a U.S. leg consisting of multiple-night sold-out runs at many key major market venues across the land, with each show offering fans performances of his new music and classics set to live production featuring the updated, custom-built Cube 2.1. Today, he is pleased to announce he will return to North America for even moar shows this October on his ‘lots of shows in a row: pt 2’ tour. Tickets go on-sale this Thursday, July 13 at

‘pt 2’ is tailored for deadmau5’s Canadian fans. The tour will make stops throughout Canada, starting on October 6 in Windsor and pass through major markets such as Toronto, Montreal, Alma, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg. He’ll also dip back into the U.S. with a stop at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado on October 20. Confirmed routing thus far follows below.

From high atop the 18-foot cube, deadmau5--who was heralded by The New Yorker as "...a crucial link in the evolution of the guitar-less rockstar..."—will perform an almost two-hour long show featuring a wide range of new material from his Billboard chart-topping dance/electronic album W:/2016ALBUM/ including "Let Go," "Cat Thruster," "Snowcone" and "2448," "Polaris" from We Are Friends Vol. 6 and classics such as "Strobe," "Ghosts N Stuff," "The Velt" and "Raise Your Weapon."

To compliment the music, the cube—central to his live performances--radiates with incredible imagery ranging from a giant mau5 rubix cube and natural landscapes to custom shadertoy panoramas and Rocket League video game scenes. A kinetic version of his previous cube with many enhancements, Cube 2.1 is larger than its predecessors. It features internal robots that push the sides of the cube--consisting of state-of-the-art LED panels--up and around while projecting brand new graphics. deadmau5's original cube made its debut at Coachella in April 2010, catapulting him to become one of the most in-demand live acts in the world.

Montreal has always been afloat with success stories of new nightlife establishments, but this one is especially worth celebrating. There is nothing out there quite like the highly-esteemed TERRASES BONSECOURS: the multi-level outdoor club situated in the heart of Old Port, with a panorama view of Vieux-Montréal, the Centre-Ville cityscape and the stunning St. Lawrence waterfront.

This Red Monday special event kicks off at 5PM on Monday, July 10th, when the Terrases Bonsecours terrace will be filled with mouth-watering cocktails and canapés as far as the eye can see, not to mention a table reserved exclusively for tasty treats. Taste Italy will be offering hungry patrons a taste of their hand-tossed, fire-roasted pizza, and Red Bull, Charton-Hobbs Quebec, Sauza Tequila and Virgin Radio Montreal have also teamed up to bring this extravagant anniversary to life.

Eight years ago Bonsecours introduced a whole new dimension to the Montreal party scene, and there’s a lot worth toasting to. Be prepared to eat and drink and dance to your heart’s delight, all the way until nightfall, to the DJ lineup of BRYAN SHIPLEY, MONTANA, VITO V, MISS SHELTON, MEKKI, PAYCE, CHRIS N, TODDY FLORES, JOJO FLORES & FRIENDS.

Space is going quickly, so reserve your spot NOW at the most lively July birthday bash the Old Port has seen in ages.



Listen up Montreal. This Thursday, June 8th, the temperature’s going to be turned way up at École Privée when their twin candles get lit to commemorate 2 years of being too cool for school!

Hosted by ROLLS ROYCE and DOM PERIGNON, Thursday’s bash is merely the kick-off for one of the city’s most high-volume festival weekends. The Grand Prix F1 races are criss-crossing with the launch of the Mural Festival, and so École Privée has used the opportunity to kill three birds with one stone and celebrate both occasions + their own birthday all at once.

On Friday the 9th, they’re back up to bat again with BAKA NOT NICE, an OVO Sound signee you might remember from Drake’s “More Life.” He’ll be joined by resident remixer PAT BOOGIE to make for one turnt up night.

To round it all off, on Saturday June 10th, they’re teaming up with Folio Montreal to bring CABANA & SENUDIZ to the classroom, plus one additional SPECIAL GUEST. Who will it be? You’ll just have to wait and see.

So swing by École Privée for their 2nd anniversary plus a very hype weekend, and let it be known that this is only of many more to come.

For Reservations/Info: 514-558-1738



To celebrate Montreal’s notorious Grand Prix weekend, which will summon jet-setters from all points of the globe as special guests into our turbo-speed party haven, SOMWHR Liquor Lounge has teamed up with Lamborghini Montreal and Dom Perignon and are putting pedal to the medal and going all out for three nights in a row.

On Thursday, June 8th, DJ GENERAL YAO and VITO V will be bringing their rhythmic abilities to the table. General Yao was inspired at an early age by the likes of DJ Jazzy Jeff and Kid Capri, going on to incorporate their stylings into his work today. Vito V is a multi-platform DJ/producer/radio host whose “Illusions of Grandeur” dropped earlier this year.

Then on Friday, June 9th, DJ CHRIS and ANDREW POLOLOS will be delivering their array of subgenre-influenced beats alongside special guest and Montreal familiar face FAFA KHAN.

Day 3 at SOMWHR will be far-out, with Souled Out Records label owner DJ Special K at the helm of the crystal clear sound system to play the best and latest hits.

All in all, one of the Old Port’s most stunning nightlife locations has the hypest of weekends planned for the annual Canadian F1. Each and every guest gets the VIP treatment with their advanced speaker setup, vast menu of cocktails, wine, beer and specialty drinks, upbeat staff and speedy entry. Located at 401 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, SOMWHR Liquor Lounge opens at 10pm each night.



For the four grandiose days of the upcoming Grand Prix weekend, Montreal joins the ranks of Monte Carlo, Barcelona and São Paulo when it evolves from its fun-loving self into an all-the-more hyped-up, extravagant and boisterous metropolis. If you’ve been scanning through the abundance of options and trying to find the optimum place to spend your weekend nights in Monty, we got you.

Picture a world where the champagne never stops flowing, the music never stops playing, the jewels never come off and the party never ends… and you’re picturing CLUB MUZIQUE, the ultimate destination for clubgoers on Montreal’s Saint-Laurent strip. Sponsored by GREY GOOSE, its Grand Prix weekend lineup is jam-packed with top-notch DJs, red carpet luxury, and the who’s-who of the international elite.

For opening night on Friday, June 9th, STEF AGOSTINO, MEKKI AND DJ DELEON will be summoning you to the dance floor with their collision of house and top 40 beats. The next night DJ INTRINITY, JERICHO and DJ KIDD will be all the way from out of the town to keep a steady rotation of hip hop and r&b all night long. Then for the final evening on Sunday, June 11, wait for AVI LARGE and DJ XCLUSIV to wrap things up Montreal style.

Named by AskMen Magazine as “one of Montreal’s finest clubs,” this statement won’t be truer than when Muzique assumes its full form for the Grand Prix weekend and becomes synonymous with splendor. From June 8th to 10th, Grey Goose and the Grand Prix are a match made in heaven that’s going to be delivered straight to the doorsteps of Blvd Saint Laurent.



This year, Sir Winston Churchill’s Pub, a staple of Rue Crescent and downtown MTL’s nightlife sphere in general, celebrates a whopping 50 years of being in business. And ontop of the hefty lineup of parties and special events they’re hosting all throughout 2017, they’re tapping into the Formula One races as another opportunity to prove what the last half-decade has established: that Sir Winston’s is the beating heart of Montreal pub life.

Starting at 9pm on Thursday, June 8th, they’re throwing an unmissable party of epic proportions to kick off the Grand Prix weekend. With one and only local DJ SWEETDROP in the house and $5 drinks starting at 10pm, this might just be the rowdiest night Crescent Street witnesses all year. Thursday’s bash will be followed by a weekend-long roster of drink and food specials and the hottest tunes 2017 has to offer, all for Grand Prix visitors and Montrealers alike to experience on Sir Winston’s ambient outdoor patio. According to their Facebook page, the SWC staff can undoubtedly ensure that “it’s going to be INSANE.”

Sir Winston’s lit lineup isn’t all that’s going down on Rue Crescent’s corner however. The CRESCENT GRAND PRIX STREET FESTIVAL is in tow and promises to be as action-packed as it’s been since it first set up shop in 1999. And this year it’s going above and beyond: for the first time ever, the festival will additionally be shutting down de Maisonneuve between Bishop Street and de la Montagne from June 8th until the 10th. The free-entry street festival is a race aficionado’s sweet dream, complete with driver appearances and opportunities to receive their autographs, racing simulators and racer displays, the infamous pit stop challenge, and a stage steered by DJs mixing music all day long.

Make sure you don’t forget to stop by and reload for fuel in the heart of the Grand Prix activities on the island, Sir Winston Churchill’s Pub and the Crescent Grand Prix Street Festival, all weekend from June 8th to 10th.



The Grand Prix Festival is arguably the biggest deal out of the innumerable festivals that descend upon the ville of Montreal all summer. That makes the upcoming revved-up automobile frenzy an ideal fit for LA VOÛTE: the newest, most innovative fixture of Montreal’s far-famed nightlife scene yet. Set up in the refurbished vaults of the ancient headquarters of the Royal Bank of Canada, this recently opened Old Port nightclub is only accessible via a 1920s elevator system, and blends modernity with history through the master’s touch of world-class interior designer Michel Prete.

Grand Prix Weekend will be yet another touchstone proving La Voûte’s status as Montreal’s #1 club, and we’re gonna tell you why.

The weekend will kick it into gear on Friday the 10th at 10PM with a trio of nightlife industry leaders from three international ports of call: Montreal, Toronto and New York City. DJ Avi Large will be representing MTL with his homegrown house beats; Manzone & Strong will be zooming in from TDOT to reverberate with their new wave 80s soundbites; and NYC’s very own DJ M.O.S. will be engaging the dance floor with his eclectic style that mixes rock, soul, disco and house. The trifecta of top-tier acts have been brought to La Voûte through a special collaboration between Perennial Events, Ink Entertainment and Perk Marketing Group, from Montreal, Toronto and New York respectively.

After a weekend of pure celebration, La Voûte will send its Formula One guests off with a bang at the GRAND PRIX CLOSING EVENT featuring ERICK MORILLO, on Sunday the 11th starting at 10PM. The Colombian-American DJ is in town, hot off his appearance at Amnesia Ibiza, to soundtrack the celebration of La Voûte’s first season in business with all of the members of Montreal’s nightclub industry family.

To grab tickets and to RSVP to La Voûte’s premier Grand Prix festivities, ring +1 (514) 679-9360 or email



Guess who’s throwing three days of lively terrace parties this upcoming weekend? It’s one of the most sought-after club spaces MTL has to offer — TERRASSES BONSECOURS, which comes complete with a 360º view of the Old Port and the gorgeous St. Lawrence River. And on the opposite side of that water, as the rumbling Grand Prix Formula One events get underway, where better to wind down and party up afterward than at the spot frequently lauded as the favourite terrace in the city?

The festivities kick off on Thursday, June 8th at 5pm with DJs FAFA KHAN and JABIG spinning late into the heat of the night. CIROC VODKA will be on deck to handout loads of giveaway prizes and their signature 3oz Ciroc Martini on special for just $15.

On Friday, June 9th, happy hour starts at 5pm once again, when TODDY FLORES, JOJO FLORES and MONTANA take to the DJ booth. Friday’s soirée is presented by SMIRNOFF VODKA, who will be unleashing a brand new signature cocktail: The Bonsecours!

That pair of fun-filled evenings will be trailed by the GRAND PRIX TIKI BRUNCH, Montreal’s most anticipated of the year. Commencing at noon with ‘Aloha!’ flower leis and Meihana Cocktails for each and every guest, this Hawaiian-style brunch will see the bistro-club adorned in tiki torches, handcrafted drink specials and tropical beats brought to you by DJ Yo-C. Patrons will feel like they’ve been transported to a Hawaiian island as they overlook the dazzling view of the Saint Lawrence and take part in the mixology Tiki cocktail demo. From 12pm-5pm on Saturday, June 10th, admission to the Grand Prix Tiki Brunch is only $50 (and includes a bonus Tiki cocktail)!

Bonsecours’ sun-kissed terrace is exactly where you want to be for this year’s edition of the Grand Prix, with the full open air experience alongside top-notch BBQ-grilled tapas, mini burgers and tartars, and some of the best sangrias in all of downtown MTL.



If you’ve thought recently that the well of clubbing innovations in MTL has run a bit dry, then you’d best think again. The lustrous brainchild of Valentin Van Beek and Nazim Tedjini, the upcoming grand opening of LA VOÛTE is about to reinvigorate the entire nightlife sphere of the city.

Beek and Tedjini, the two figureheads behind such establishments as La Champagnerie and Blvd 44, have invested in reconfiguring the historic vaults which rest below the old headquarters of the Royal Bank of Canada, and it’s just the shift in wining and dining Montreal’s Vieux-Port has been looking for.

Located in the basement of 360 Saint-Jacques, these twin chambers each house a capacity of up to 500 people. Michel Prete, the world-class designer behind Opera Club, was called in to craft the overall visual style of both rooms. La Voûte will have five large bars and one expansive dance floor. The far-reaching space encapsulates a whole 13,000 square feet, with ceilings rising up to 50 feet.

Most notably, the exquisite new nightclub contains only one point of entry: through the armoured doors that once protected the Queen’s jewelry. An elevator will transport La Voûte’s patrons to the bowels of the bank, which was has been completely preserved from the era in which it was built, between 1926 and 1928. History will blend with modernity through brick walls, daring decoration, and a state-of-the-art sound system helmed by world-famous DJs, lending the space an aura of celebration, as well as mystery and the bygone.

It is said that this is where the queen would hide her jewelry .. #lavoûte

A post shared by Nazim Tedjini (@nazimtedjini) on

“It will be unheard of in Montreal,” Van Beek told Le Journal de Montrèal. “I hope this new destination will rekindle the image of nightlife in the city and that people will have a great experience.”

La Voûte’s webpage is currently hosting a countdown to the night of May 26th, so pay close attention for a slew of announcements in the days leading up to the swinging open of those ancient doors. We’ll see you down there.



After a frigid winter of having to leave the house in our snowsuits to go partying, summer is finally upon us — and with that, the seasonal re-opening of LES TERRASSES BONSECOURS: one of the most sought-after soirée spaces MTL has to offer. Complete with a 360º view of Vieux-Montréal, downtown’s cityscape, and the gorgeous St. Lawrence River, this multi-level club-meets-bistro has been classified time and again as Metro News’ “favourite terrace” in the city.

For its 9th and most exciting season yet, Les Terrasses Bonsecours is back and better than ever. Hear this: there’s 3 floors, VIP private white-booth seating, an expanded bottle service listing and the largest bistro menu ever. Chow down on a famous mini-burger while you gaze out at the ships on the water, and when nightfall hits take it up a notch by hitting the infectious dance floor with Montreal’s hottest DJs and a glass of champagne. This Thursday, May 18th, the Official Opening will be scored by local acts Thomas H, Bryan Shipley, Chris N, Evangelos and more.

The summer could never be better than out at Les Terrasses Bonsecours, and that’s why you can’t miss the mega launch next Thursday. As soon as the clock strikes 5pm the party begins, with media attending, music pumping, and BBQ munchies galore. The best place to get a cocktail in the city, this Old Port fiesta is sure to have you coming back for more.



Thirsty at the moment? Well never fear, Montreal, because Veuve Clicquot’s Yelloweek is about to take over our city. The annual week of champagne-doused festivities continues this weekend at the Old Port’s Somwhr Liquor Lounge, followed by a matinee brunch at Blvd St-Laurent’s very own Ristorante Buonanotte to delight all your senses.

Throughout the duration of the Clicquot-sponsored spring event, MTL’s finest join forces to offer the best restaurant, bar and hotel experiences of your wildest dreams. A pop-up boutique will arise at Alton Gray in Carrefour Laval for the entire month of May. And yes, free bubbly will be pouring at several of the venues week-long.

The matinee brunch on Sunday, May 7th, boasts a thematic menu. A bite at Buonanotte never fails to impress with its Italio-style food and wine, trendy music, and good-looking clientele. Ring 514-848-0644 for bottle service and dinner restorations, and make sure to stop by to taste what Marco, the restaurant’s skilled head chef, has in store for you. But before that, stop by Somwhr Liquor Lounge on Saturday, May 6th for the one and only precursory Yellow Night.

With especially crafted menus at the likes of Auberge St-Gabriel, Jellyfish Crudo Coal, Tapas 24, Mr. Resto + Bar and Soubois, Yellowweek is only the beginning of more than a season’s worth of unique events the city will be offering all summer. But if you’re one for fine-dining like a celebrity, nothing beats Yelloweek’s dazzling eatery experience.

Last summer, Chance Bennett, the then-23-year-old rapper, released his third mixtape “Coloring Book.” It was the first album ever to chart on the Billboard 200 solely based on streams, and it was the first streaming-only album to be nominated for, and subsequently win, a Grammy. The day after he was awarded the Grammy for Best Rap Album, Chance took to Instagram to announce he was setting forth on an all-new Spring 2017 Tour—and now you all have the chance to catch it at the end of the month in Montreal at the Bell Centre.

2016 solidified Chance’s reputation as one of the preeminent rappers of today. No artist had a bigger year—he opened with a guest verse on a song by his idol, Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam,” and closed by beating him out for the most prestigious award in their field—but not before surprise-dropping a collaborative Christmas album, “Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama,” with Jeremih. Still 2017 looms even larger for Chance, with the unending hype and acclaim his new tour has been receiving, and a purported first “official” studio album in the works.

Courtesy of evenko, we’re giving away 2 free tickets to see Chance at the Bell Centre on May 25th. To participate, you must like the page, then share, like and tag the friend you’d like to bring on this post.

For the 375th anniversary of the city, Montreal is taking its gigantic yearly rave out into the open. On May 28th, Parc Jean-Drapeau is hosting a very special edition of BAL EN BLANC—Canada’s longest-running electronica festival.

In its 23rd edition, EDM titan MARTIN GARRIX is headlining the fest, straight off a sold-out tour with Justin Bieber. “His team really likes that our event isn’t limited to music, but that it’s also artistic. Garrix really wanted to be there,” said Alex K., the founder of Produkt, noting that Garrix is performing in Mexico and Las Vegas the same weekend before jetting to Montreal.

Usually held indoors at Palais des Congrès, Jean-Drapeau’s natural setting—the home of esteemed musical escapades Osheaga and Piknic Electronik—will make for an ultra-unique atmosphere to commemorate the city’s big year. “We want to be close to nature, in the woods, in the forest,” explains Alex K. “Like we have in the past, we’ll be featuring numerous artistic instillations. We aim to showcase the work of local and established artists on site.” Once night falls over the Saint Lawrence River, festival attendees will be be able to gaze out upon the shimmering Jacques-Cartier bridge and revel in world-class techno beats.

Techno’s youngest superstar, Martijn Garritsen was discovered by Tiësto in 2012 and signed a contract with Sony Music International last year. His biggest claim to fame yet has been “Animals,” the 2013 monster hit that topped charts worldwide.

Other special guests booked to light up the main stage include Israeli producer BORGORE, L.A. duo SLANDER, and Dutch DJ SAN HOLO. A sidebar program entitled “We Are Montreal” will highlight an array of local talent.

Produkt’s BAL EN BLANC (IN THE PARK) will be held on Sunday, May 28th, from 12PM—10PM. General Admission and VIP Experiences tickets are released Wednesday, April 19th at noon.



Remember the ultimate party destination that popped up just 30 minutes outside of Montreal two summers ago and swiftly became the most talked about club in all of North America? Pointe-Calumet’s Beach Club played host to the likes of Kylie Jenner, Dan Bilzerian, and several of the globe’s topnotch DJs in its first two seasons, but third time’s the charm! We’ve missed them a lot since the off season started, but never fear: Beach Club just announced the initial roster of artists who’ll be lighting up the outdoor paradise’s speakers once summer arrives in full swing, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.

First up is DANNY TENAGLIA on May 20th for the venue’s GRAND REOPENING. A New York native who pioneered the progressive house movement we know and love today, Tenaglia was first awoken by the club model of Paradise Garage, which he started to attend in ’79. His initial big break came with a remix of The Daou's "Surrender Yourself,” and on and on his story as a revolutionary talent at the helm of dancefloors worldwide has been written.

Next on deck is CARNAGE, playing all day on May 21st. The hip-hop hybrid beat-maker has made a name for himself on the festival circuit by tapping into a specific genre of party music. Enthused by hype trap breakdowns and hands-in-the-air hollers, a show put on by Carnage means a show where standing still is not an option. The sounds he throws into the air are free and untamed, impossible to define: “I really enjoy a life of whatever I feel like doing. It’s impulsive. If I need to make a rap record I make it, if I desire to create a home record I make it. If I desire to make some pretty sh*t I make some pretty sh*t, you know?”

To top off all of this opening weekend splendour, WILL SPARKS and QUINTINO will be splashing by for a day-drunk May 22nd. Named “No. 1 Australian DJ” in 2014, Will Sparks lights up the dance floor with his Melbourne bounce stylings. Quintino discovered turntables at an early age and started remixing trap hits that jumped to the #1 spot in the Netherlands, but his first real breakthrough was 2011’s “Epic.” Ever since, Quintino’s status has been growing and growing to sky-scraping heights.

Other world class acts to guide us through the summer heat include ADAM BEYER on May 27th; ARMIN VAN BUUREN on June 11th; AKON on June 25th; LIL JON on July 9th; GALLANTS on July 29th; and DIMITRI VEGAS & LIKE MIKE on August 20th. Beach Club offers tropical dance parties all summer long, along with its delicious restaurant, VIP cabanas rentals, luxury beds, wide screens and majestic live sets from the hottest in the industry. So what are you waiting for? Tickets for the season’s 3-part kick-off weekend hosted by Danny Tenaglia, Carnage, Will Sparks and Quintino can be bought right here for $45 General Admission, or $90 VIP.




Time flies. You’ll never believe it when we tell you that CLÉBARD, the immaculate St-Denis restobar, opened 4 years ago. Ever since, they’ve been offering the Plateau Mont-Royal one of the best places to dance and socialize and celebrate, whether for a luxurious cocktail or a smooth bourbon. The people over at Clébard are grateful for all the love and support they’ve received over their four years of existence, and so they’ve decided to give back to their patrons by throwing a huge birthday bash the first Friday of May.

Fridays in the city are about to be cast under a spell with the all-new weekly soirée at MIMI LA NUIT. The sophisticated restobar is located at water’s edge on atmospheric Rue St Paul in the heart of Montreal’s Old Port, and its charm has only ascended with the announcement of NIGHT MAGIC, an evening cabaret hosted by Montreal nightlife legend Perry Lee.

An array of musical sets will be performed throughout the night by live musicians including flute, violin and saxophone players.

A staple of Rue Crescent and of Montreal’s vibrant nightlife in general, SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL’S PUB is proud to announce it’s been going strong for 50 whole years. That’s half a century of memories! And to celebrate, in the fashion of their namesake, they’re hosting a hefty lineup of parties all throughout the year—and you’ve gotta be there.

On February 23rd, the first bar to ever open on Crescent Street held their hit kickoff party.

Next month, on the 20th of April, Sir Winston’s has invited all those who worked as bartenders from 1967 to 1990 to reconvene and recall the good ol’ days, with lots of laughs, food and—undoubtedly—drink. On August 24th, the second roster of alumni will be stepping foot in the workplace where they created some of their greatest memories alongside fellow alumni from 1991 to 2017.

May 25th brings about a psychedelic 60s-themed party, and later July 20th gives rise to a groove-filled 70s bash, rounded off by an 80s extravaganza on August 31st. Sir Winston’s is perpetually a summer go-to spot, for its daily happy hour specials and ambient outdoor patio.

On September 11th, they will be hosting their annual golf tournament followed by a dinner at Winnie's. Later that month, September 28th will go full-swing into nostalgia mode with a much-anticipated 90s night. On October 19th a 2000s-themed party is the perfect send-off to the 50 year rewind, and on November 30th, Sir Winston Churchill’s will crescendo with a gigantic birthday party, where all 50 candles will be blown out and another 50 years to look forward to!

Rue Crescent is in for one wild ride as it reminisces over the fantastic years that established it as the foremost spot for partying in downtown Montreal. So check out some of Sir Winston Churchill’s anniversary events, because they’re going to be the talk of the town all year long.



It all started with two childhood friends from the Dutch countryside, miles away from a nightclub of any sort. But on Saturday, April 1st, they’ll be mixing onstage for hundreds of fans, an ocean away from the hometown where they first crafted their big room sounding their minuscule home studio. At NEW CITY GAS, the one and only VICETONE will be performing their far-famed catalogue for each and every of their Montreal adherents, including “Let Me Feel,” “No Way Out,” and one of their latest releases, “I’m On Fire.”

But it’s hardly just the Dutch duo storming the rave venue that evening. Vicetone will be joined by partners-in-crime SNBRN and Madison Mars on the 1st, making for one sick triple-lineup of the most crucial acts colouring the modern EDM scenery.

Known by his pseudonym SNBRN, Kevin Andrew Chapman hails from Los Angeles and made a name for himself on the SoundCloud. A spiritual disciple of Fatboy Slim and Moby, he studied audio engineering and production before embarking on his professional journey as an artist.

On the heels of his new single “We Are The Night,” Madison Mars is proving himself as one of the rising stars of his generation. He curates an ultra-popular weekly house music playlist on Spotify, and he has his own graphic novel you can check out here.

So: Saturday, April 1st. You’ll wanna be there with your hands way up in the air. Tickets for VICETONE with special guests SNBRN and MADISON MARS can be purchased right here for only $16 GA or $36 VIP.



On Sunday, April 1st, once the sun’s gone down and the lights have flashed on at our favourite after-hours nightclub in Montreal, the all-star tech-house musician NICOLE MOUDABER will take the stage for one of her ever-popular DJ sets. There’s no better place to rave to the sounds of “the most underrated DJ” than the immeasurable setting of North America’s infamous (((STEREO))). Located in downtown MTL’s Gay Village, this nocturnal venue provides the undeniable spot to keep the night going next Saturday eve.

Born in Nigeria and one of the founders of dance music in Beirut, Moudaber’s all-inclusive early dance parties caught the eye of the media—and also the police. Her postwar “Trashy Renaissance” party drew talent from all across the globe, and took place within the vicinities of a mosque and a cathedral, intending to defy the notion of hatred and prove a new generation could rise with music as their cry for a better future. “It was a success,” she says, but the self-expression the DJ inspired in others also led to accusations of terrorism from local authorities. “It was enough to persuade me that I was wasting my time out there […] so I very much stuck to London and Europe from there onwards.”

Now Nicole Moudaber is about to touch down in Montreal for an empowering stint at (((Stereo))). She’s collaborated with the likes of Carl Cox and Adam Beyer, is listed as a Resident Advisor Top 1000 Artist, and plans on spending the late night of Sunday, April 1st, as the dark techno empress of (((Stereo))). Buy your tickets here. Nicole Moudaber is known to host some of the wildest Montreal nights, so you cannot miss it.

This weekend, my Montrealers, prepare yourselves for some monumental celebrating. We're well aware it's the rainy weekend leading up to Halloween, but you best think again if you assumed the next few days were going to be any variation of chill. Renowned for its wildly glamorous parties each and every weekend, from Les Samedis Beat the Clock to its esteemed Industry Sundays, CLUB MUZIQUE is the most popular nightclub in the city, and it wants to spend its upcoming birthday proving just why that is the case.

The immense fun all kicks off on Friday, October 21st, with the multi-hyphenate artist who was once crowned "Canada's #1 Female DJ": DJ RHIANNON. Having opened for the likes of Tiesto, Deadmau5 and Steve Aoki, Rhiannon is a self-taught wonder, having taken to early 2000s Technics 1200 turntables plus a stack of house and breakbeat records to hone her ear for sounds that draw partygoers to the dancefloor. She'll be at the turntable all night to deliver just this.

Muzique is following up with a similarly lit Saturday eve, when trailblazing GOONTRIBE will take over the club for all of October 22nd's high-flying celebration. The early conceptualizers of some of Montreal's hypest events, these promoters eventually evolved into the DJ-MC duo of Chops on the mic and Goldenchild at the turntable. Today the award-winning collaborative effort is helmed by JERICHO, CHOPS, KIDD, J-FRO, JEMZ, TRVLSALESMAN and DELEON, and all 7 will be present to mark 7 years worth of insane years Muzique has spent as the frontrunner of Blvd. Saint-Laurent.

Back to back, keep calm and carry on into Sunday, October 23, when AVI LARGE & DONALD LAUTURE will be hitting up the lavish destination. They're inviting you to celebrate the historic 7 years the club has seen, with deep house cuts and champagne flowing to the rhythm of the bass.

Finally, on October 25th — the authentic birthday of the place that's more than a building with sparkling lights and surround-sound speakers, but a place where memories are created and lifelong relationships are born — Detroit all-star producer MARC KINCHEN will be touching down in MTL to throw one of the greatest clubbing events our city's downtown has ever seen. Hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Dance charts in 1993 and '94 consecutively, Kinchen's remixes have maintained a massive presence on the house scene.

So raise a glass to 7 stellar years of laughs, drinks, and music at Muzique! Starting this weekend and lasting until Tuesday, 3781 Saint-Laurent Blvd is going to represent nightlife's success to transform one building into a haven for people looking to have fun.



This Saturday, August 20th, the intensely popular nightlife daydream that is StereoBar will be embracing a variety of dark artists for an eve-long takeover ft. the epic lineup of PAOLO ROCCO, OTIS and LESSI S., all back-to-back.

A Montreal native, Paolo Rocco knows how to get the party started. He first started gaining traction with the single “Move Body, Move Forward,” which shot its way to the top of Beatport’s Deep House chart. He’s now known for his multitude of remixes which demonstrate his stronghold on Montreal’s ever-shifting party atmosphere. He’s produced tracks like “That I Am” with Real Tone Records and “People Say,” released exclusively on Saved Records. He and Ryan Otis will be at the helm in StereoBar from 10PM until 3AM.

Last but not least, Lessi S. is a MTL-derived minimal house prodigy, with a ‘less is more’ attitude that finds manifestation in labels Get Physical Music and Bauhaus Collective.

These homebred homies will be showing StereoBar in raw moments for an unbeatable way to spend one of your last summer weekends. Snatch your tickets here for under $10.



Ready to get riled up for a wild and vicious show this upcoming Friday? Look no further than New City Gas, downtown MTL’s EDM hub. For August 19th they have none other than GRYFFIN crash-landing into Quebec to wow the raving crowds, and it’s going to be one of the most soaring shows of the summer.

Born Dan Griffith, NYC-based Gryffin has smoothly claimed his spot in the dance spotlight with his hit remixes of the likes of Maroon 5’s “Animals,” Years & Years’ “Desire” and Tove Lo’s “Talking Body.” Although his tracks have amassed upwards of 100 million streams online, he launched his musical career on the other end of the spectrum as a classically trained pianist who began to dabble in music production when he moved to the West Coast to attend the University of Southern California. Most recently, his first original work “Heading Home” ft. Josef Salvat, flew straight to #1 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart.

This Friday, August 19th, we’ll catch you at NCG for an unstoppable night on the wings of an immaculate DJ set by Gryffin. Purchase tickets here for $16 General Admission or $36 VIP/Line Bypass, and do it fast. Doors open at 10pm.



Get ready MTL, for one of the most turnt Sundays of the summer. The biggest outdoor club in North America, located in Pointe-Calumet just half an hour outside of downtown Montreal, is set to break down its barriers and transform into a party fit for Miami. Light up the Fierté weekend with some raging EDM and the sand between your toes as you throw caution to the wind and lose yourself to the sounds of DADA LIFE.

The DJ duo from Stockholm, consisting of Olle Cornéer and Stefan Engblom, take partying very seriously and are sure to make it happen like it’s nobody’s business. The electrohouse musicians first burst onto the scene in 2006 and ever since have been causing riots at clubs worldwide, including in 2012 when they played for over 100,000 fans on their North American tour and reportedly used more than 3,000 bottles of champagne and 8,000 lbs of bananas. Their performances are infamous for being like nothing else out there, which shouldn’t come as a surprise from the party musicians who broke the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest pillow fight.

One thing’s for sure: this is a Sunday at the notorious Beachclub that most certainly won’t be a day of rest. The party starts at 11AM and lasts until sundown. Tickets range from $30 General Admission to $50 VIP All-Access, and should be purchased online right here before they sell out! It’s #beachdayeveryday as we continue to celebrate away under the summer sun.



What’s that we hear? Not too exhausted from an insane Friday night at the club, and dying to keep the party going? That’s where we come in handy. This Saturday will be just as hype as the soirée the evening before, when Canadian DJ MARK ANTHONY will be making an appearance at the most nonstop after hours this side of North America — that’s right, Mark Anthony is here to play all night and into the morning at (((Stereo))).

When he was just 16, Mark started to spin hip hop and reggae tracks around the dance halls of his hometown, right here in Montreal. He was soon granted a regular position DJing Thunderdome, the legendary industrial club, and quickly became entrenched in the underground warehouse scene of Old Montreal and the Plateau. He built his enormous following headlining Montreal’s renowned Black & Blue main event in 1995, and in ’98 co-founded the nightclub (((Stereo))) itself. Now he’s back to take to the booth and reign as king of the castle he built, all during Fierté Montreal Pride week.

Tickets to this must-see all night event are $30 general admission or $25 early bird, and can either be purchased at the door or in advance right here. It’ll be a packed house for Pride, aplomb with the exact sounds (((Stereo))) was built for: textured house beats, blending shake-it percussion and savvy special effects. Mark Anthony was once awarded the title of “Best Canadian DJ,” and this night will be sure to prove why. Doors open at 2AM on the night of Saturday, August 14th, and the next-level set lasts well until next morning’s sunrise has come and past.



Brace yourselves for the upcoming Friday. I mean it. Brace yourselves. Because at StereoBar, two of MTL's most on-fire DJs will be going head-to-head to make for one whirling night at the world-class pre-afterhours exposition. Only on Friday, August 12th, Cesar Romero will be joined by Jesse Zotti. Expect deep and soaring techno vibes to carry you through the middle of your Augusts.

Cesar Romero hails originally from Santiago, Chile — playing local clubs until ranking first in a DJ competition that gave him the courage to leave his home country in search of an electronic music career elsewhere. After a successful stint in Mexico, Romero found his way to the city that finally grabbed his heart: Montreal, his current home and the domain that helped him really come into his own behind the DJ booth.

He'll be joined by Montreal resident Jesse Zotti, a prog-house wonder who's known to take the stage at StereoBar time and again. Without a doubt one of the city's rising stars, his set this Friday will accompany Cesar Romero’s high-flying dance beats with perfection.

So on Friday, August 12th, be braced for a night of dancing to some seismic August beats. Tickets to see Cesar Romero, Jesse Zotti and Johnny Messina can be purchased online right here. Doors are opened at 10pm and stay that way until 3am.

This Saturday, August 6th, the internationally renowned prelude to after-hours joint STEREO, the dark and atmospheric StereoBar, will be hosting a one-of-a-kind affair with Montreal resident dj JAY LONDON. He’ll be in the house for an unforgettable eve rife with pitch-black beats and somber sonic setlist.

The precocious electronic producer started honing his passion for music at the age of 8 when he first got his hands on a drum set. After adding a guitar and piano to that mix, London discovered house music, and the rest was history. He’s a longtime collaborator with Stereo frequenter Paolo Rocco, and although he’s played major shows in everywhere from New York to South Africa, his MTL appearances are often the most victorious. His career is just beginning, and this Saturday you’ll have the chance to catch him in his element at the one of downtown Montreal’s most esteemed venues.

So head on down to StereoBar this Saturday, August 6th for a special JAY LONDON August weekend kickoff. Doors open at 10pm and tickets may be purchased at the venue.

The twin faces behind Mile End’s Faceless Recordings, their multitude of remixes demonstrate their stronghold on Montreal’s ever-shifting party atmosphere. At the start of the summer MONITORS dropped their J’ADORE EP, featuring remixes by Droog, Silky, Stefan Z and Ominous.

So make sure to drop by StereoBar to usher in August ’16 with MONITORS and KRESSEL this Sunday, July 31st, as part of the infamous Les Beaux Dimanches series.



There won’t be a single reason to turn down on Sunday, July 31st at Beachclub Pointe-Calumet, when the force of a dance music maverick will build the day from sandy ruins. Up-close and personal, the day-drunk venue is set to be shaken to the core by one and only CARNAGE with very special guest FLOYD MAYWEATHER!

Known as Papi Gordo by fans on Twitter, hip-hop hybrid beat-maker Carnage has made a name for himself on the festival circuit by harnessing a specific genre of party music. Enthused by hype trap breakdowns and hands-in-the-air hollers, a show put on by Carnage means a show where standing still is not an option. The sounds he throws into the air are free and untamed, impossible to define: “I really enjoy a life of whatever I feel like doing. It’s impulsive. If I need to make a rap record I make it, if I desire to create a home record I make it. If I desire to make some pretty sh*t I make some pretty sh*t, you know?” He’s worked with some of the trillest in the game, including Migos, A$AP Ferg, and recently ILoveMakonnen on “I Love Tuh” and Timmy Trumpet with “PSY or DIE.”

If you want to find yourself caught in the middle of a show-stopping set by one of the industry’s genre-defying acts, and we all know you do, then turn it up all the way to Beachclub this Sunday. Grab your tickets here for between $35 General Admission or $50 VIP. Doors open at 11AM and stay that way until the sun sets on July 2016 for good.



July 2016 is inevitably coming to a close, and you know what that means? It’s time to renew yourself, start composing that summer bucket list, and revving up for a whole August’s worth of parties and celebration to assure this will be the wildest month of the summer yet. The city’s downtown nightlife circuit has a lot of exciting events planned for the summer nights that await, but as of now, the festivities have already begun.

One of the first major soirées of the year comes in the form of ERIC CLOUTIER and ADAM SOLOMON, who’ll be playing live at Stereobar this upcoming Friday, July 29th. Eric Cloutier, a Detroit-originated electronica hero a decade in the making, has gathered a passionate following over the years with his body-oriented dark house sound. Dancefloor dwellers within the confines of our favourite pre-after-hours club this Friday night will also be confronted by the massive drops of MTL resident Adam Solomon: a usual suspect at Stereobar and loads of other Montreal hotspots.

So finish off the month by heading over to Stereobar this Friday, July 29th. Eric Cloutier and Adam Solomon are a surefire duo to maximize the good times on your weekend party checklist. The music starts at 10pm and doesn’t stop until 3am. Tickets will be sold at the door.



This Saturday, July 23rd, the internationally-renowned after-hours Stereo will be hosting a one-of-a-kind affair with none other than techno mogul GUTI. He’ll be joined by MTL’s favourite bird OSTRICH and JAY LONDON for an unforgettable night rife with pitch-black beats and a somber sonic atmosphere.

Rooted in the philosophy of jazz music from his humble beginnings, for the past decade Guti has been one of the most distinct voices on the Latino American house scene. In 2010 the producer moved to Düsseldorf to target all his focus on his what would be released on the debut project that took the world by storm: “Patio de juegos,” released on Desolat.

Ostrich, the multidisciplinary Montreal-based artist, will also be in the house. Beginning as a filmmaker before developing a penchant for the city’s vibrant nightlife world, he uses his cinematic roots to build a narrative approach with his tunes and live sets. As a resident DJ at Salon Daomè and (((Stereo))), his “Art To Ashes” shook the city upon its arrival in 2014.

Third up to bat is the famed Montreal-raised Jay London, a Stereo resident who has played to enormous crowds from Canada to New York to South Africa. (((Stereo))) will be vibing with some next-level elevation all night as the this amalgamation of sounds continues to get bigger and louder.

Grab tickets to back-to-back sets from Guti x Ostrich x Jay London this Saturday at (((Stereo))) right here for between $24 — $30. Doors open at 2AM and don’t close till 10AM.



Isn’t it crazy how time flies? Now that we’ve found ourselves in the midpoint of 2016, and last Christmas is as far away as the next one is near, our very merry Saint-Denis restobar CLÉBARD is bringing us one special holiday gift. In collaboration with Grolsch, NOËL DES CAMPEURS arrives Saturday, July 23rd this year, complete with camping decor, gleaming Xmas trees, and festive rockers LES TI-GARS.

Two additional special guests this weekend include Père Noël and Montreal Dj John Lee. Clébard is one of the best places in the Plateau to dance and socialize and celebrate, whether for a luxurious cocktail or a smooth bourbon. They recently introduced a new bistro menu and dozens of cocktails. So don your Santa hat and camping gear and get ready to rock around the Christmas tree at 4557 Saint-Denis.

Entry is FREE. Check out the Facebook event here, and ring 514-903-4456 for more info.



For three straight moonlit nights in a row this weekend, get ready to get down at the newest fixture of Montreal’s exuberant downtown nightlife scene. ‘Soirée’ is the only thing on the menu this Thursday, July 21st through to Saturday the 23rd, with the grand unveiling of the prestigious nightclub RENDEZ-VOUS gracing all us Montrealers at 3565 Saint-Dominique.

Cutting-edge and gorgeous interiors, top-notch service from bartenders and bouncers alike, plus the city’s premier DJs will latch onto your attention this July and never loosen their grip. Each and every Thursday a brand new guest DJ will be making an appearance as part of Rendez-Vous’s WEEKLY REUNION parties, from hometown hero TIZI helming the speakers this Thursday evening, to the likes of STEF AGOSTINO, PHILIP WHITE, DAVID A., MIKE ROBIA, GESES, JOHN ADAMS and FAFA KHAN all backed by PATRICK CHAMPAGNE — all recurrent Montreal producers — setting the stage for the remainder of the summer.

Relishing in an open concept which allows for two main bars and VIP tables to up the sense of freedom of each wild night at RDV, Rue Saint-Dominique will surely never be the same. Launching this Thursday at 10PM and lasting three nights until 3AM, Le Rendez-Vous will simply revitalize MTL’s going-out atmosphere in all the ways it needed to be.

We’ll catch you out there at 3565 Saint-Dominique all weekend. Cover charge is 10$ or free on guestlist before 12:30am!



If your Saturday didn’t take you to the extreme this mid-July weekend, there’s only one way to sort that out. Right at Beachclub Pointe-Calumet, located just half an hour from downtown Montreal and boasting the ranking of biggest outdoor venue in North America, you’ll have the chance to lose yourself like Monday will never come. Among the #1 international DJs in the flex, all-star sisters NERVO will be landing down in MTL straight from Australia, destined to light up the beach with their lite-brite sound.

Raised in Melbourne, at age 16 twins Miriam and Olivia Nervo were taken by a modelling agency even though music was always their ultimate aim. They later veered into a songwriting career with the single “Negotiate with Love” written for Rachel Stevens, and in the same year, stepped behind the studio mics themselves to record the 2005 single “Boobjob.” In the years to follow, Nervo would go on to sign with a major Swedish label and collaborate with the renowned likes of Kesha, the Pussycat Dolls and Afrojack. The duo has grown into novices of the festival circuit, and certainly won’t be turning down the heat for their upcoming appearance in Quebec.

#Beachdayeverday continues on Saturday, July 17th, when the songwriting masterminds take the stage to play their best and latest to the ecstatic crowd you know you wanna be a part of at Beachclub Pointe-Calumet. Beginning Sunday at 11AM, tickets range from $35 General Admission to $60 VIP, and they’re going fast. Get them here!



While Montreal’s an urban scape filled with daytime festivals and park relaxation, don’t forget about its bustling nightlife. MTL electronic dance music venues are unique and unrivalled by all other North American cities, and one of the greatest of all is Rue Ottawa’s New City Gas. NCG is a temple for anyone who wants to go wild, and the DJ sets it presents are simply out of this world.

This upcoming Saturday the 16th, don’t miss your chance to catch the one and only LEE BURRIDGE Live. Ever since discovering the acid house genre over a decade ago, his illustrious career has seen him become one of the most revered DJs from England. He started pursuing his dream on the Hong Kong clubbing scene, migrated to Thailand to spin now-legendary moon parties, and before he knew it, the British mastermind was having his name printed near the top of lists in DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJ Poll, Muzik’s DJ of the Month and Mixmag’s Best Up and Coming DJ.

This weekend Lee Burridge will be joined at New City Gas by hometown luminary DRISS SKALI. Purchase tickets here for between only $16 — $36 if you wanna go wild with them this Saturday, and we know you do. Doors open at 10PM and don’t close until 3AM.



Are you ready for another night of losing yourself at the enigmatic after-hours that is Stereo? You better be! We all know you want to make the most of this high-flying July, live fast with no regrets, so there’s no better place for you than within the confines of one of MTL’s greatest party venues. Now this Saturday, for the very first time ever, all ROMAN FLÜGEL, SEBASTIAN MULLAERT and CESAR ROMERO will play under the same roof and build each other’s energies to topmost peak. It’s going to be insane.

Roman Flügel’s sets comprise over twenty years of rave music in one fresh breath of house, techno, and obscure Italo-house. He calls it acid house, but avid fans of the German producer, and there are several around the world, experience it as a feverish dance dream. He is sometimes a gentle giant at the nightclubs in Germany, letting his free-spirit course through the veins of the venue — but often also an up-and-away vision of the history of EDM all combined. His remixes of Daft Punk, Pet Shop Boys and Kylie Minogue are reasons alone to pay the admission price.

One half of the internationally-acclaimed Swedish duo MINILOGUE, Sebastian Mullaert’s range of techno, house and ambient sonic landscapes displays why he’s a producer practically born to spin at (((Stereo))). Now that Mullaert’s strayed from his Minilogue roots and begun to pursue solo work all over the world, his live performances have taken on an innovative setup: improvised jams with electronic instruments, free-spirited on the fly creations, and acoustic artists in addition to DJs.

Cesar Romero hails originally from Santiago, Chile — playing local clubs until ranking first in a DJ competition that gave him the courage to leave his home country in search of an electronic music career elsewhere. After a successful stint in Mexico, Romero found his way to the city that finally grabbed his heart: Montreal, his current home and the domain that helped him really come into his own behind the DJ booth.

On Saturday, July 16th, brace yourself for a night of losing it to three of the world’s best traveling producers all under one roof. Tickets to catch Roman Flügel, Sebastian Mullaert and Cesar Romero can be purchased online right here. Doors open at 2AM and don’t close until 10.



UPDATE: Due to weather conditions, this show has been postponed to a later date not yet announced.

On Sunday, when the sun rays will come out to play at the newly-resurrected Beachclub in Pointe-Calumet, so will all-star house musician EDX. There’s no better place to rave to the sounds of Zurich’s greatest EDM exports than in the exotic setting of North America’s biggest outdoor club space. Located just half an hour from downtown Montreal, Beachclub provides the undeniable spot to throw down at the end of your weekend.

Better known by his stage name EDX, Maurizio Colella has been in the game for the past two decades. From the initial single “I’m Not Interested” which announced his arrival on the Swiss scene, to last year’s “Missing (ft. Mingue)” or this year’s “Roadkill,” EDX has produced official remixes for the likes of Benny Benassi, Mary J. Blige and Sam Feldt, as well as helped catapult Spinnin’ Records from their humble beginnings to their current status.

Collela will be joined by Nora En Pure — who also hails from Zurich and fittingly just dropped a deep house mix entitled “On The Beach” — and one of Switzerland’s utmost dymanic and most-wanted house pros, Croatia Squad.

All three producers are about to touch down in Montreal for a powerful massage of the ear canal with their sonic journeys, with plans on spending Sunday, July 10th as big room techno masterminds of Plage de Pointe-Calumet. General admission is $15 and VIP stage access tix are $40. Buy them here and do it quickly! This is the first time EDX has taken the stage at Beachclub, but it surely won’t be the last.



UPDATE: Due to weather conditions, this show has been moved to Club Le Cinq on Saturday July 9th at 10pm. All tickets purchased will be honored at the door but season passes will not grant you access to this off-site event.

On this Saturday, July 9th, Beachclub will be struck by a tidal wave of two of the most celebrated brothers in the industry at the moment. For one serene day, VINAI will be in MTL to transfix their fans at Pointe-Calumet with their immaculate live show. The doors to paradise open at 11AM and don’t close till 8PM.

Alessandro & Andrea Vinai are Italian brothers who decided to join forces and try producing music. After a series of releases and collabs their signature style caught on, coming to be known internationally as “big room bounce music.” Their unreal smash hit “Bounce Generation” reached the top spot on Beatport less than a week from its release, and after heaps of radio support, VINAI reached the ears of listeners worldwide. When they teamed with Canadian group DVBBS to helm the track “RAVEOLOGY,” they became permanently cemented in the current house music conversation.

Gaining more strength everyday in the neuvo Italian big room wave, VINAI shows no signs of slowing down. Get your tickets to check them out at Beachclub Pointe-Calumet, this season’s hotspot decked with several terraces, cabanas pool bars, luxury beds and a full-on beach, on Saturday, July 9th right here ($20 presale — $40 VIP admission).



In an attempt to top the insane lineup of musicians hosted last month by the famed after-hours (((STEREO))), this Friday night promises to be a big one. Until all hours of the morning, TONE DEPTH and JESSE ZOTTI will be blaring their unique blends of house and techno in the heart of Montreal’s nightlife quarters.

Tone Depth hails from Montreal, reigning as a crowd favourite in the city for the transformative deep house vibes he brings to all of his sets. He’s worked with the likes of Ready Mix Records and Great Stuff Recordings, and his albums include “Taking Time [Part 1],” “Homeless” and “What We Do / Everything Is Colour.”

He’ll be joined by MTL-resident Jesse Zotti, a prog-house wonder who has been known to take to the DJ booth at (((Stereo)) time and again. Without a doubt one of the city’s rising stars, his set this Friday will accompany Tone Depth’s high-flying dance beats with perfection.

So this Friday, July 8th, be braced for a night of raving to some pretty seismic early July beats. Tickets to see Tone Depth and Jesse Zotti can be purchased right here starting noon, July 5th. Doors open at 2AM and don’t close until 10 the next morning.
