That’s right ladies & gentlemen, this Saturday is the 1st Annual BASTID’S BBQ – we’ll be illin’ & grillin’ at the fantastic Steam Whistle Brewery in the centre of downtown Toronto! We’ll be firing up the coals at 3PM and shutting it down around 10PM. 255 Bremner Boulevard. Look for all the green signs. Advance tickets are available at SoundscapesRotate ThisPlay De Record and Ransom Holding Co., or online through Paypal. Tickets will be available at the door subject to availability. Don’t be left hungry or sad, scoop one up now! Consider yourself invited…
*I’ll be playing approx 5p-6p

—————-
After eating some amazing barbecue and playing some great summer tunes alongside a listing of dope DJs, I’ll be heading to The Beachclub Festival (5000+ person outdoor party at Canada’s biggest water park with 2 stages) where I’ll be playing approx 8p-9p w/ JB Allen & Sir Lancelot before heading to Skybar. There are a lot of DJ’s on this bill and it should be another dope event.. Don’t miss out!

Following our set at Beachclub Festival, I’ll be playing the 9th annual ‘Brazilian Heat’ party at Guvernment’s Skybar Rooftop Patio. This is always a great vibe and I’ll be playing everything from brazilian funk, house, r&b, hip hop, and various dance music bangers. For list you can hit vip@sirlancelotonline.com

Halloween 2010 Recap..

This year’s Halloween Weekend was pretty crazy.. On Friday Oct 30 we were at Toronto’s biggest Halloween costume party inside Liberty Grand with over 5000 people in attendance.. The next day (Saturday, October 30) we flew to PEI for the first time (Eastern Canada) to play The Wave at University of PEI, along with our drummer – JB Allen. This party was a smash… Thus brings us to Halloween night, Sunday Oct 31. We took an evening flight back to Toronto which got me back just in time to play a set at TIME Nightclub, alongside my dude DJ Tilt. Another Halloween weekend, another series of good parties.. Videos & pics from all 3 nights below.

Quick re-cap of my last West Coast Tour (Los Angeles, California).

West Coast Tour Re-Cap [May 2010]

img_0031

On May 20 – 24, I was out in LA playing some dates in Hollywood w/ my dude Sir Lancelot. We were at Cabana Club on Thurs, Beachwood Fri, Marbella Sat, and Empire on Sunday! Big shouts out to the man DJ Mike Danger for everything as usual – he is that dude! Between the club gigs, we connected with DJ Skee at his studios, caught up with the homies at Orisue, went by Mad Lion’s studio, did some shopping and ate a lot of food.. Look out for Bridging The Gap: Toronto – LA.. It’s coming! I’ll also have a video from this tour put together soon, in the meantime here are some pics..

Costa Rica This Weekend [Fri-Mon] + Clipse Mixtape [Tues] + West Coast Canada Tour [Wed-Wed]

afiche-web2

In the next 21 hours, I need to wrap up a mixtape, pack, play a gig in Hamilton, play a party in Niagara, and then head straight to YYZ [Toronto Pearson Airport] to catch a flight to San Jose, Costa Rica via Charolette.  I need to be at the airport in Toronto for 4am on Friday morning, and it’s now 7am on Thursday morning.. I swear I’ve lost all sense of time these days. Oh well, on to the next one…

I’ll be able to get some rest when I get into Costa Rica on Friday; the hotel we’re staying at definitely looks relaxing.. The whole reason I’m there is for ‘Electro Fest’ - a huge event in San Jose which features Bands & DJs from around the world [France, Canada, Panama, Costa Rica, etc]. I’ll be DJ’ing for ‘Let’s Go To War’ and probably playing a set later on as the party goes till 8am.

I’ll get to chill out and enjoy the Country on Sunday and hopefully get to check out some beaches and rain forests.

I’ll be back in Toronto late Monday Night/Tuesday Morning, and will drop the Clipse Mixtape on Tuesday evening, before leaving for a 7 day West Coast Canada Tour on Wednesday, December 2nd..

*Edit – I’m still working on this mixtape & appreciate your patience!*

Back to work for now… Wish me luck.

..32 hours in China?

So, as some of you may or may not know, at the beginning of the month I went out to China to play a couple of parties.  It was definitely a good experience, despite being such a short trip! I was in Hong Kong & Shanghai & I’m looking forward to heading back soon, and going to more cities and spending some real time out in Asia!

My experience pretty much went as follows: I left Toronto Thursday morning, landed in Hong Kong Friday evening, checked in to the hotel/showered, went out to dinner with DJ Doze & management at M1NT Hong Kong, headed to the club, DJ’d my set 1230-3, slept a few hours, headed to HK airport, flew to Shanghai on Saturday, checked in & showered, had another amazing dinner, rocked M1NT Shanghai w/ DJ Choyce Kutz, took a 3 hour nap, had some quick breakfast on Sunday morning, then left Shanghai, flew 15 hours back to Toronto, headed home to change/shower, then drove to Niagara Falls, and DJ’d another party there at Dragonfly on Sunday Night..!

It was an experience to say the least. No time for shopping.. In fact, no time for anything – not even authentic Chinese food :( It’s all good.. I’ll be back!

Full 3 day tour video coming soon.. In the mean time here are some pics of the journey. Peace!

Hong Kong & Shanghai This Weekend!

So.. I’m making a quick mission to Asia for the weekend.. Gonna be a long few days ahead, but should be fun & I’m excited to check out the clubs in Hong Kong & Shanghai..!

Sunday afternoon I fly back to Toronto, and land back at YYZ around Midnight Sunday Night..

L.A. Tour Re-Cap!

Once again, I’ve been too busy to update the site consistently.. I’m trying my best, but when you are on the go as much as me, it’s often difficult to find a couple hours of free time to sit down and do this. No excuses though, here is the recap of my LA trip from April 24-27. Myself & my MC, Sir Lancelot flew out to rock a couple spots in Hollywood.. Pictures after the jump.
