co-presented by our pals at Many Moons
MOON KING - (Toronto, ON):
Set time: 11:30pm - 1:00am
Turning (Inside Out)’ marks a continuation of Moon King’s partnership with Arbutus Records, following 2017’s breakout single ‘In & Out’. In the early 2010’s, Daniel Benjamin was a part of the flourishing electronic music scene in Montreal, performing as a touring musician with Grimes, Sean Nicholas Savage and Doldrums, all while beginning to write & produce his own music. A 2016 move to Detroit and immersion in that city’s vibrant dance music and DJ culture soon began to influence his own recordings, embracing a signature blend of underground disco and effervescent synthpop.
LEE PARADISE - (Toronto, ON):
Set time: 10:30pm - 11:30pm
After the frenetic rock of his band Hooded Fang and the psychedelic electro vibes of his project Phèdre, Canadian Daniel Lee, aka Lee Paradise, is back with a new solo album entitled The Fink (Telephone Explosion Records), a real sound journey to the heart of a world where the sun no longer shines and where humans have ceased to exist. In theory, the end of the world and funky groove don’t have much to do together. Yet, from this surprising association, Lee Paradise has erected a record from elsewhere, superimposing sophisticated electronic grooves, screaming cosmic synths and imposing bass lines.
DJ JUNO + DJ LK - (Kingston, ON):
Set time: 9:30pm - 10:30pm
To complement this evening of live dance music, local DJs Juno and LK are bringing the party with all vinyl sets featuring rare disco, house, and other gems designed to keep you moving.
