FLIPSIDE AND HATIRAS – THE Tech-house Birthday Party of the Weekend

No Comments

OK Toronto party people….

This Saturday Basement will be going off with two Techhouse legend birthday boys that are ready to make you fuckin’ dance.

MC Flipside, Hatiras, Loopity Goofs, Miz Megs and Chris Vench are gearing up to play some house, techhouse and jackin’ house that will scratch that itch that’s been building up all week.

Flipside kills it wherever he goes. I wasn’t there, but I heard from a shitload of people that he rocked it at the Donald Glaude party at Amsterdam Brewery a few weeks back. I’ve seen him play here and there and I was dancing my ass off every time. Flipside will be celebrating his birthday so WATCH OUT! His set on White Label Podcast is on high rotation in my life right about now:

Hatiras, the other birthday boy, is a legend indeed. Myself, I haven’t heard him play recently that I can recall, but I remember him being my absolute favorite at my first WEMF experience in 2007. According to the facebook event he is a 2 time Juno Award winner and he is also on Toolroom Records which is my new fave UK source of awesome music.  Here is a mix of his that I stumbled across:

Loopity Goofs are very close to my heart. Gord and Scott know exactly what to play to make people dance their asses off. The excitement they bring to the decks is unfuckingreal. Ive heard them play a trillion times and I’ll hear them play a trillion more. Much love.

Miz Megs has been making a lot of noise in the Toronto tech-house scene lately. Throwing parties and playing at parties, people are starting to know her name. I don’t know if I have heard her play an entire set solo (without GCue), so Saturday night brings something else to look forward to. Didya check out her soundcloud???

Chris Vench….I’ve heard him play a few times and he definitely knows how to play to the crowd. Random after-hours parties to straight up tech-house jams, he uses his crowdtelligence to decide what to lay down. So that means this Saturday he’s going to play some serious beats because the party is going to be OFF THA CHAIN.

Come out and see Basement’s new look at a party that will be off the hook.

I’ll be there with ma bitchez.
