The alien has been here with Stylust Beats, with The Gaff, with the Monster Energy 7″ Tour, and even tagged with DJ Dubconscious to open for Sam Binga – but never to perform a solo headlining set. On this night we’ve also got the Lazy Syrup Orchestra, featuring Dunks from The Funk Hunters, warming it up for Mat – plus local disc jock phenom Rafferty Funksmith taking you in for the first hour. First 50 tickets are just $15, available at The Falls Music Lounge now.


•• Mat The Alien ••

Since the age of 14 Mat has been mixing, scratching and making mixes – beats, spanning many genres and styles but always having one thing in common – heavy beats and bass lines that appeal to a wide variety of crowds.

He is now an official Monster Energy DJ and can be found performing at some of their top sporting events events alongside and often jamming with DJs like DJ Z Trip and DJ Nu-Mark, also pulling out the occasional 45 set.

•• Lazy Syrup Orchestra ••

The Lazy Syrup Orchestra is headed up by founding member of The Funk Hunters, Duncan Smith. Dunks is a versatile DJ, VJ, & MC. Known for an eclectic sound, his styles include hip-hop, house, funk, D&B, downtempo, disco and boogie. He has toured internationally and played hundreds of festival over the past 6 years and worked alongside legendary artists such as Chali 2na of Jurassic 5 & Michael Franti and Spearhead.

•• Rafferty Funksmith ••

• Awarded the title of Best DJ in the 2013 Kootenay Music Awards & in 2015, Artist Of The Year •

Rafferty Funksmith is what you might call a “party-rocker extraordinaire.” A self-taught vinyl disc jockey and vinyl archivist, he’s been collecting records for almost 20 years.

His legendary marathon sets have been known to last for 8 hours or more, taking dancers on a journey through tasteful selections of funk, disco, hip hop, reggae, r&b, and soul. The music he plays has an uncommon level of sophistication and diversity, while maintaining a sweat-drenched atmosphere of groovy dance get-down.
