Back in the day i use to go to the Guv (Guverment ) in Toronto to see Addy play and was never disappointed. This guy was unreal on the decks ,you never knew what was coming up next  and when Addy plays  on 4 decks look the fuck out. Addy has a very distinct sound and really knows how to hype up the crowd wether he is playing a small intimate party like this friday inside the O-Lounge or at BPM in Mexico he knows how to read a crowd which takes years of skill and commitment. Here are some of ADDY's sets along with a video of him at BPM enjoy.

Well, its been almost a year since my last blog. I’ve been busy with all kinds of adult bullshit; work, buying a house, saving up to go on vacation, blah blah blah. The important part is that I am back to writing again.

If you’ve been living under a rock for a while and are one of those people that wait until the last minute to plan your evening/always have the excuse, "Man there’s nothing going on in Hamilton. This city sucks!"  Then this blog is for you! I will be filling you in on the following events in and around the Hamilton area, so saddle up pretty boys!

Saturday January 25th the Annual FunknStyle Jam

Every year local DJ's get together to celebrate the life of our friend Jonathan Williams,otherwise know in the DJ community as FunkNstyle. This night is jam packed with great DJ's spinning the best in funky breaks and house. I have been a part of this amazing event 9 years and counting. I must say, it’s one of my favourite parties to play, let loose and catch up with all my industry friends. All proceeds from the door will be donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll come out and support this great cause.

 Up Stairs @ Ceili House

If you’re into the latest in EDM, love drinking Jagger, shaking your head and getting right down dirty on the dance floor then you need to check out Electric Saturdays with DJ Chaotic. Chaotic is not only a well-known DJ in the Hamilton area, but a great producer in the studio. You may also recognize his handle from his radio show on Gum Fm. I first met Chaotic in the summer when DJing along side him on the Allure Boat Cruise. Having been involved in the underground music scene for over 10 years, I’ve had the opportunity to meet a lot of DJ's who think their shit don;t stink. Generally, conversations with these individuals revolve entirely around them, "Hey bro, guess where I'm spinning this weekend?" This is ususally followed up by incessant ‘name dropping.’ Well, I hate to break it to ya, but guess what BRO…I truly don't give a shit. Sorry for going off topic there but my buddy Chaotic is not even close to being that type of DJ.  Instead, he is very educated in the ‘do’s and donts' of the scene (not to mention very busy in the studio producing and running his weekly events inside Ceili House in Hess Village). Check out his weekly  residency every Saturday night from 10pm - 2am. Ceili is located on George St in Hess Village.
 Heres  a link to his sound cloud page with recent mixes and productions for your enjoyment.

AM Undrgrnd - After Hours

What can I say? It’s been way too long since Hamilton has had an after hours club. Let me be the first to say “THANK F*#*ING GOD”. Back in 2008 I was one of the rotating resident DJ's alongside my friend MK DJing at the Underground. We were very fortunate to bring in not just local talent but the best in Toronto as well. This roster was stacked: Carlo Lio, Addy, Fabian Strong, Flipside, The Junkies…just to name a few. The launch of the night was a success, but slowly diminished due to lack of promotion by the club and ignorant security not admitting paying customers. Back then, the city was having a hard time allowing these type of events to take place and would do anything to stop them. Such tactics included undercover officers being sent in to scan the nightclub, among various other ‘staffing issues’ (NO COMMENT!)

Despite all this, it looks like the AM Undrgrnd has a promising future with Club 77. These weekly EDM nights take place upstairs and have become great promotion for the club downstairs as well. The man in charge of booking the talent for this night is a good friend of mine, Hugo Matos. Mr.Matos, well-known for throwing his Allure Entertainment parties, has been the most successful promoter/ DJ in the Hamilton scene for the past 4 years. There is no stopping him, he not only promotes parties, he's been booked to DJ at notable nightclubs such as, Footwork , The Guverment, O-lounge, and Pacha  New York just to name a few. This man has been fortunate enough to DJ beside some of the biggest names in the biz. Hugo is very well respected by the club industry because he puts 110% into his events at all times and is very reliable with his talent (heads up to all of you kiddies out there calling yourselves promoters and telling your DJs they are required to bring at least 40 people to play at their club. You can bite my ball sack. Take note you douchebags, Hugo is the real deal).
With the opening of AM Undrgnd, this city is finally welcoming electronic music rather than fighting it. One thing that stands out with Hugo is that he is an all encompassing supporter within the industry, he understands that there are other events in and around the area and realizes that if promoters work together as opposed to merely competing against one another, there will be more of these successful events. In which case, we all win.
I’ve yet to attend one of these parties myself, however, when I tried to make it in for Hugo's birthday the line was Massive. BUT, this tells me one thing… IT IS BUMPIN' INSIDE!
I know the sound system really well because back in the day we hired a friend of ours who was a professional sound engineer to set up the proper sound in the club, it took a while but man, Brian Cassiano worked his magic and the club was SMASHING with the dirtiest basslines  that belong in big underground clubs in Toronto. Needless to say, I know where I'm gonna be on Saturdays… Supporting our underground movement in the Hammer at AM Undrgrnd . I guess what I’m trying to say is...See ya on the dance floor ladies and gents!
