--+ Shadowdance Productions brings a scene-driven event to Guelph

--+ We excitedly present:

--+( FOCUS )+--
--+( "An event focussed on the strength of our scene" )+--

For this two room event, we've brought in some of the finest talent we could find; putting it in a large, innovative venue. This event is truly designed for you, the mature partier looking for a creative event which will be like no other.

--+) The Main Room (+--

2 Wars & A Revolution, DAMN!
London, UK | Breaks and Such

This man is truly a force to be reckonned with in the breaks community. Known as a production pioneer, he comes to us straight from a recording gig on the 2 Wars and a Revolution label. When interviewed by Eye Magazine in Toronto last year, he was asked what beat junkies would miss if they didn't check his performances. His reply? "... some beefy breaks-infused house, some ridiculous old tracks, mixed in by force, if necessary." It doesn't get much better than this.

-+ CZECH +-
Futuristic Funk Records, DAMN!
Vancouver, CA | Funky Breaks

A Canadian legend, Czech has been around for longer than most can remember -- a staggering thirteen years. He has been the driving energy behind the infamous Soul Kitchen night on the West Coast for the past seven years. In his many travels, he has headlined alongside acts such as The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy, Orbital, Crystal Method, Rabbit in the Moon; just to name a few. This is a man who needs little introduction in our scene, so we'll let his beats speak for him.

-+ PALADIN 5.0 +-
Unknown, DAMN!
Parts Unknown | Hard and Dark

We are exceptionally pleased to bring the return of Paladin to the 519. Arriving directly at the Guelph Inter-Stellar Spaceport for this special date, the costumed alien from another world comes armed with some of the phattest, darkest, and hardest tracks to be heard this side of Alpha Centauri.

-+ SOS +-
Sounds of Sugoi, TTC, DAMN!
Toronto | Insanity Trance

The Toronto master of building up a crowd to a veritable frenzy, SOS absolutely tore the roof off last year at Spectrum. We have the privilege of bringing him back for another beat blazing set, in his own signature style.

-+ ROBB G +-
Promo Records, Eastern Bloc, PPM
Toronto | Breaks

Robb will be opening the night at this event, laying down a set which all others of the night will be measured against. His career is gaining speed, and his performances are a showcase of quality. This will be his first Guelph event, and we're proud to have the honor of bringing him here for his debut.
