Blast off into outer space with us as we ascend to Bloom Nightclub for something a little bit different. DJ Joaqamole is a beast with the dancy pants beats while Rippel holds down the turntablism and hosting duties, adding an ill hip hop flare to the night. All the while, Dave Ronald sews it all together with his greasy freestyle guitar licks! $5 before 11pm, $8 after, with Happy Hour drink specials in effect until 11:30pm!

•• Joaqamole ••

Joaqamole has been mashing up the beats as Ymir’s resident DJ since 1999. His commitment to a happy dance floor vibe coupled with good crowd connection encourages an interactive and energetic experience.

Joaq draws on many genres in his mixes including hip hop, funk, house, soul, bass, glitch, chill and more. He consistently produces a crowd appropriate vibe with smooth clean transitions to keep your body moving.

Recently he has been focusing on blurring the line between live and electronic music. This is manifesting in the form of collaborations with live musicians, as well as MCs and fellow DJs alike.

The night at Bloom will be one such collaboration. Dj Rippel’s turntablist and MC skills will highlight Joaq’s mixes while Dave Ronald’s sweet guitar riffs will add depth and that live jam element. It will be a night of creative improvisation not to be missed.

•• Dj Rippel ••

Rip has been on the hip hop scene since the early 90s, writing/producing/breakin/scratchin/smokin and creating/hosting the local hip hop night since 1997 and the original/1st Shambhala Music Festival; hip hop host/DJ/emcee while bouncing from club ta club, with well over 1500 live shows!
