•• Ocea Sasa ••

Hailing from the pristine beaches and forests of the Sunshine Coast near Vancouver, Ocea was raised at music festivals all over coastal BC. Gaining momentum at the age of 19, she began honing her taste in sound and culture in Nelson BC, nestled away in the Kootenay Mountains. The last few years she’s been living there and has made appearances at Shambhala Music Festival, Kamp Fest, The Field Gathering, and many other large, and small scale events. Her love for the culture of music and art has taken her into events coordination with the Field Gathering and other events. Ocea’s style ranges far. With an eclectic background of sound, you could hear her playing almost any genre from gypsy, to ambient, to deep bass, to G house, to everything remixed. Ocea stands up for individuality and authenticity on all fronts and lets those factors shine through her sound. A true up-and-comer to the BC Bass Music movement.

•• Jason Whyte ••
Sunshine Coast, BC

Jason got his start DJing and VJing in 1995 in Vancouver BC. Having grown up in the 80s, his tastes were geared toward the mid synth-pop vibes of the early electro movement. Once the 90s broke out with House music, there was no looking back and this has been his genre of choice ever since. Loving diversity in all music, he’s found the many sub genres of house music have kept his sets lively – spanning the deep, tech, jazzy and funky 4/4 beats in his infectious live sets. A yearly residency at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival (7 years long and 9 nights per year) opened up the opportunity for him to explore the mid-tempo, jazz and trip hop genres. His experience includes residencies at the Source, the famous Lotus Club, 11 years at Soundwave Music Festival, 10 years as a DJ /VJ withtheShambhala Music Festival, a residency at The World afterhours, and finally a vast number of VJ residencies at pretty much every nightclub and underground venue in Vancouver. He has hosted countless events in on the west coast and has acted as mentor and promotor for many an upcoming DJ, including his daughter, Ocea Sasa.

•• DJ Colin Hargreaves ••

Colin Hargreaves has been cultivating his sound over the last twenty five years. Hailing from Ottawa, Colin has also held residencies in Edmonton and Vancouver before locating in the Kootenays in 2013. Colin hosts ‘The House Grind Radio Show’ 2-hr mix at DERADIO.ca every month.
