Update: Back from our Thanksgiving weekend in Paris North – we had a fantastic time at Salon Daomé for the High Heels Prohibited birthday jam, as you can tell from the broadcast archive .
Stay tuned for plenty more parties from WOA in MTL!
We’re back in Montreal to celebrate the birthday of our good friend, Pascale Papin, better known as Nymra!
To do so, we bring you the High Heels Prohibited birthday bash – featuring Nymra & Sofisticated, and Nature of Music!!!!
Last month, we learned of the permanent closing of one Toronto’s legendary nightclubs, everyone’s favourite Saturday spot for deep house — Footwork.
Since then, we’ve been sure to attend as many events as we can, to really soak it all in. Luckily, the DJs have been as stellar as usual, so it wasn’t too much to ask.
Lee Burridge, a Toronto-favourite, made sure to pay his homage to footy as he came down and, also much as he is known for doing, tore the place up!!
It’s pretty easy to tell when there’s a headliner worth hearing inside footwork, because, well, you probably can’t get inside footwork… and if you are, good luck gettin’ out!
This was most definitely another one of those nights.
Last month, it was announced that Hot Since 82 would be the first DJ to grace the new compilation series Little Black Book, from UK record label Moda Black.
The eagerly anticipated album, slated for release later this month, will feature new original tracks by Hot Since 82, along with some personal favourites, unreleased gems, and some dug-up classics.
We received a copy of the new single off of the album, Shadows – and we can happily report that this new track is a certified BANGER. It’s got the punchy, deep tech-house sound that Hot Since 82 has come to be known for; combining a deep bass line, techno-induced synths, and a classic house melody, which is complimented superbly by Erin Mills’ vocals.
This is definitely a track to keep an ear out for during the rest of the year.
Catch Hot Since 82 playing an extended set at Footwork Nightclub this Sunday – with local support from Jonathan Rosa!
Update: Thanks to all those that come out to Nuit Blanche and participated in the My Virtual Dream experience!
The dome was full til’ sunrise, and unfortuantely, we had to turn some potential dreamers away at the end of the event – but we thank you all for your enthusiasm and patience!
Tonight we go live from the annual Scotiabank Nuit Blanche – Toronto’s contemporary locative arts festival – featuring hundreds of interactive installations that tempt, tease, and tantalite the senses.
This year, we’ve partnered with Baycrest Hospital and the University of Toronto to broadcast the My Virtual Dream installation!!
Using BCI (brain-comuter interfaces), participants will enter a 60-foot dome, wherein their EEG brain wave data will be read and analyzed, and using the collaborative efforts of the ‘dreamers’, visual stories will be projected onto the dome!
Be sure to stop by the installation at Universtity Ave. & College St. or tune in to the live broadcast, right here on WOA, or the MVD website!
This summer, we kicked off our invasion into Montréal with a few fantastic events.
One of which was the Clockwork Beach Party; in collaboration with Party Monsters, R’Choons, Diskonnekt, and Tech House Cartel, Clock Tower Beach was transformed into a tropical paradise… the music was loud, the drinks were abound, and the sand couldn’t have felt better in between your toes as we danced to the setting of the sun, and well into the night!
Check out the WOA Edit from this great jam and be sure to join us on one of the many road trips we’ll be going on next summer to one of Canada’s best cities.
