Driven to pursue music and the saxophone from the age of 12, Austin has been playing, composing, performing and producing music for 15 years. In 2008 his curiosity led him to explore DJing. By pursuing this interest, he has now been in the Vancouver scene for almost half a decade. Through this journey he has come to passionately love the sound of Techno and has found himself in the Subversive crew, who have worked diligently to help develop an open-minded Techno community within Vancouver by bringing artists from around the globe. Austin's sound has matured through a wide variety of musical influences. From years of Jazz, Afro-beat, Reggae, World and Dub, his ear turned electronic. IDM, Trip-hop, Breakcore, Down Tempo, Drum & Bass, House and Techno. His ears have definitely found another warm, cozy and happy home. Most recently he has been drawn to warm and spacey pads, to dreamy and psychedelic melodies, to deep and grounding bass, and to tribal and industrial broken beats. In addition to DJing, he's also found himself the Saxophonist in the Jay Tripwire Live Ensemble, who've had notable and well received performances in the last 2 Vancouver Jazz Festivals'. Because of this, Austin has recently collaborated with the band's leader and patiently awaits for 2 upcoming remixes to be released on Vinyl.
I've had the chance to share the stage with these amazing artists: Jay Tripwire, DVS1, Luke Hess, Francis Harris (Adultnapper), Peter Van Hoesen, Mike Parker, Julius Papp, Jay Haze, 8Channels and Slow Hands
REMEMBER: SPREAD THE LOVE! <3
Kyle is Technobear. Born and raised on the West Coast, his passion for making music was ignited when he went to his first outdoor party back in 2000. The music had transformed his life and he had found his calling. In 2004 he learned to play starting with house then move to psytrance. Since the beginning of 2011 his focus has shifted to techno, tech/house and minimal. He plays dark, hard, funky tracks that keep the dance floor moving with his signature blend of thick, rich, crunchy basslines with sweet rhythms and crazy build-ups.
Norman Wells started mixing in underground raves and clubs under different aliases in his hometown of Montreal back in 2002. You can count on his rich dance floor experience to deliver the merchandise. Over the course of his 12+ years career, he has played everything from goa, UK hard house, breaks, euro trance and progressive trance. Now calling Vancouver home, he's settled for crunchy, dark techno as his main outlet. His influences include, but are not limited to: John Digweed, UMEK, Kraftwerk, Tiga and Adam Beyer
