THUMP - History of EDM in Canada Video

It's called a digital dreams video but it's more about the scene and history here in Toronto.

Thanks for posting that video.
It makes me smile to think of the wonderful times had by so many people back in the late 90's and early 00's when I was still parting in Ontario.

I am happy to see that all the work that promoters did back then has developed into a sustainable industry. I can't imagine that many promoters when they started throwing parties thought that they will develop a career out of it.

One thing missing: where is the shit with all the more hippy-ish promoters who throw parties in different places for smaller crowds?

This is a history of "the club" - not all electronic music in the area...

That was hardly a history of Toronto's electronic music scene.

It was a video CV for those who have a stake in Digital Dreams.

Not that I take any issue with that. Quite the contrary. People - especially the younger generation of party-goers - should know the talent, intelligence and experience behind Toronto's festivals, which may on the surface look like corporate cash grabs.

I'm with Praktik, I'd love to see more videos from the different corners of the scene. I'd love to see some footage from the older OM Festivals.

I have no doubt that Ryan loves the music that he promotes, but he's always been a businessperson, first and foremost - anyone who ever played a Destiny Friday and didn't get paid at the end of the night can attest to that. ;)

Had not seen this before. Good watch.
Reminds me a bit of those RA real scene mini-docs.

At the end, mentioning how things got quiet in the early 2000's while everyone was learning to make music- or find their sounds / voices what ever.. seems pretty right to me. Toronto is exploding right now with talent.

chris pronovost has swag for weeks. the fact that he isn't living on a boat in monaco or someplace like that is one of the worlds great injustices haha

I didn't even know Toronto had that many good looking people
Beer commercials always have attractive models that they've hired. Heineken is no exception.


I enjoyed watching that. I'd totally forgotten about Wintergalactic. Industry I remember vividly.

well shot for sure. not some much on history though. if you want a history on edm in toronto you've got to go further back than industry. nice that matt & kenny are getting props though. out of all the toronto djs kenny has always been one of my faves. we actually go way back to even before he started spinning.
