Substation + HIFI Every Thursday Starting June 9!
Well, the news has broke! Substation will be taking over HIFI Club in Calgary every Thursday starting June 9th, 2016. I am humbled and excited to have this opportunity to have a weekly residency in Calgary again for the first time since 2008. The whole crew is extremely honoured to have been invited to take the place of Hai Karate, which had a 17 year run, made famous via the Small Town DJS and it's early days at The Night Gallery. 17 years is prolific, not many things in this business last that long. Hai Karate acted as a portal to funky music; the launching pad for funky breaks, trip hop, rare groove, disco, nu-disco, boogie, trap, and all of the incarnations of bass music in the late 00's. I know this is a very coveted spot to be in and I will do my best to make it as special as possible.
Our concept is simple; to first showcase Canadian talent that we stand behind as well as open the door for collaborations between the other like minded labels, crews and arts collectives in other cities and ports. Sprinkle that with a few imported guests here and there and you have a magic combination. We are kicking off the night with a Substation fam jam and then steadily rotated programming all summer. Let's bring it back to a place where we did this for the right reasons; for the music and for the fun. Super excited! Hope you will join us on the 9th.
We put together a new mix of 100% Substation release materials from the past, present and future to celebrate this momentous occasion. Listen below:
