WED JAN 2ND • TIKI BAR inside WALDORF HOTEL • 1489 EAST HASTINGS
This week I've got a very special guest all the way from Calgary, Bass Lion, of the Dub at the Pub Crew.
This Wednesday we continue our new weekly night in The Tiki Bar, inside the famous Waldorf Hotel. Each Wednesday, you'll hear reggae & dancehall records, as chosen by a rotating cast of Vancouver's finest selectors on the vintage analog sound system that the Tiki Bar has become famous for. Music will start at 9pm, through 'til 2am, no cover.
•••> BASS LION (Calgary, Dub At The Pub)
DJ Bass-Lion is Co-founder and resident of Calgary’s longest running reggae night; “Dub at the Pub.”
Selecting for over 15 years, DJ Bass Lion has shared the stage with artists such as Mad Professor, Top Cat, Sister Nancy, Sly & Robbie, Demolition Man, Jacky Murda, Echo Minott, R Cola, and Marcus Visionary amongst many more. These experiences have given DJ Bass Lion a unique artistic flare well worth seeing. Bass Lion is known for his eclectic style but he’s guaranteed to bring the heavy bass and the sweet reggae vibes.
•••> DJ DUBCONSCIOUS (Shambhala Music Festival, Dubslingers)
Dubconscious has come to represent both the east & the western coast of Canada. Born & raised in the Toronto area, he attended University in Victoria before spending 2 years in Nelson BC, snowboarding in the winters & working for the talent department at Shambhala Music Festival - where he has become a resident of the Living Room Beach Stage over the past 3 years.
Having settled in East Vancouver roughly a year ago, this seasoned selector brings a whole new flavor to the table – heavy basslines mashed up with a roots reggae infusion, funky bashment vibes, future jams, classic hip hop & trip hop, with a dash of turntablism.
He looks forward to sharing his vast collection of reggae & dancehall vinyl with you all each Wednesday inside the Waldorf Hotel, be sure to get a preview by downloading one of his reggae mixes from the soundcloud.
