FRIDAY DECEMBER 9TH WeSC & HAPPY ENDING FRIDAYS PRESENT…

And in the Livestock it’s Vacation with Relly Rels, Crillz, Brkn & A-Shae

SMALLTOWN DJS: The Canadian duo’s uncanny ability to make crowds feel like schoolkids at recess stems naturally from their focus on maximizing fun for themselves.

‘We’re just out to consistently have the best time possible,’ says Pete Emes, who shares space behind the decks with partner Mike Grimes. This fun maximization philosophy is the unifying force behind the Smalltown’s genre-warping club sets, which tend to cover vast musical territory but never veer from the good times vibe.

In their focus on music as a means of letting loose and having fun, Smalltown DJs are like the KISS of dance music. Actually, KISS are too theatrical. They’re more like AC/DC. Meets Raffi. At a waterslide park. With a lot (a LOT) of beer.

The Smalltown story goes like this. Emes and Grimes met in the late nineties and discovered a shared interest in funky breaks and baggy pants. Emes at the time was moonlighting as a deejay while working full-time as a geologist for an oil company. Grimes, a former snowboarding prodigy (he’s on the inside cover of the very first Transworld Snowboard mag) was toiling in a skate/show shop. Joined by a love of imposing their musical tastes on others, the two started playing records out together.

Before long they had launched Hai Karate, a weekly Thursday smash-up that’s still going strong. Now in its tenth year, Hai Karate is a free-for-all dance party that borrows a little from each of the scenes that shaped the Smalltown sound – community hall punk rock, block party hip-hop and early nineties rave.

The long-running night is now hosted at HiFi Club, the Calgary nightspot that the Smalltowners opened with a partner in 2005. The HiFi is but one part of the indie empire that Emes and Grimes have built in their homeland. They also own a record label (Bigfoot), a record store (Phonics) and a clothing store (Giant 45).

The way the deejay thing is going, it’s hard to grasp how they have time for anything else. Aside from weekly residencies at HiFi and EyeCandy Soundlounge in Las Vegas, Smalltown DJs have showcased at SXSW in Austin, toured Canada with Brooklyn’s The Rub, played Thievery Corporation’s club in Mexico several times, performed at a bunch of festivals including Lollapalooza and Shambhala, and toured Europe on a swing that included a gig at Fabric in London. That was just 2008.

Equally at home playing intimate private jams or massive festivals, Smalltown DJs have have hosted and played alongside a huge array of talent, including Afrika Bambaataa, Dj Assault, Jeru the Damaja, Diplo, Tommie Sunshine, Spankrock, Chromeo, The Rub DJs, A-Trak, XXXchange, Low Budget, James Lavelle, Z-Trip, Fort Knox Five, and more.

On the production side, the duo has released several blends, remixes and re-edits that have been getting play all over the world. Recently they teamed up with Wax Romeo to create Smalltown Romeo, a new production supergroup focused on making fun dance music with a sense of humour. Not surprisingly, Smalltown Romeo’s production style resembles the squad’s approach to deejaying – polymorphous, party-focused and pretension-free.

BONJAY: In cities and suburbs around the world, the next generation of young musicians are emerging. Inspired by the underground music of the last 30 years, they are unencumbered by the restrictions of style and attitude that traditionally divided genres. Cities that once tried to emulate New York or London are coming to the forefront, newly confident in their local blends. The youth are coming into their own, cheering the home team, celebrating wherever they can stay out late and telling their stories with cracked software and cheap guitars. To praise the metropolises of the world for their diversity seems quaint – it doesn’t seem worthy of self-congratulation if it’s all you’ve ever known.

Into this environment arrives Bonjay. Drawing their name from spice island slang for “Good God!”, Bonjay were born in a basement at Ottawa’s legendary Disorganised parties. What began as a simple crowd pleasing party lark has developed into a serious commitment to songwriting and production, including remixes for labels like Mad Decent, Ninjatune and Ghetto Arc (XL Recordings).

With Alanna on the mic and Pho on beats & effects, their live performance is a high-energy sound system of bass and soul. Dancehall innovation, indie sentiments, and R&B hooks – these are the sounds booming out from the jeeps, towers and headphones of young Toronto, and Bonjay makes them their own.
