He’ll be dropping a whole heap of knowledge and skills alongside Mat The Alien, DJ PUMP and Dj Illo – using strictly 45s! No advance tickets for this one, $10 at the door before 11pm and $20 after – Happy Hour drink pricing is in effect until 11:30 – so come early, stay late and soak up a history lesson from one of the true masters and veterans of the craft.

No CD’s, no MP3’s, no Laptops, Just 45s & good vibes.

The 7 inch vinyl record is the preferred audio delivery device from some of the best era’s in music history. Between the years of 1950 – 1975 it was the only physical way to manufacture some of the best songs ever created, and continues to be used to capture some of the most iconic and original tracks recorded today.

•• DJ Scratch Of EPMD ••
Brooklyn, NY

For over two decades, DJ Scratch has been everyone’s favorite DJ’s favorite DJ. Acknowledged as one of the greatest DJs of all time and in 2006, he was honored in The Source Magazine as a Hip Hop Icon. Scratch is the man who provided the flamboyance to EPMD, Jay Z and P Diddy’s stage shows. Throughout the years with EPMD, Scratch drove audiences into frenzies with visual and technical routines far beyond mortal DJs. One of his most famous routines is cutting Big Daddy Kane’s “Friday the 13th Imma Play Jason” line as he emerges from beneath the turntable set wearing a hockey mask. Various DJ routines & turntable tricks created by Scratch over the past 15 years are still being duplicated by concert & Battle DJs today.

•• 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 Z-Trip and DJ Nu-Mark, also known to pull out the occasional 45 set.

•• DJ PUMP ••

Though he first gained notoriety as one of Canada’s top turntablists, grabbing both the DMC and ITF national crowns and other top DJ awards, Pump has since continued to prove that he’s about more than just impressive tricks. In fact, he effortlessly balances all of the qualities that make a world-class DJ: he’ll empower you to discover new music while helping you to remember the old, playing even the most classic joints in ways you’ve never heard before; he’ll seamlessly blend genres from hip-hop to funk, trap to soul, and disco to house in one evening without ever skipping a beat; and he’ll do it all with the same unmatched flair that has earned him the respect of his peers around the world as one of the best in the game and one of Canada’s DJ crown jewels.

•• Dj Illo ••

Music is Illo’s life – it’s almost as if he had no choice. Drawn to the bass guitar at an early age, he eventually graduated to keyboards and piano and discovering turntables at the age of 14. Years later he has easily become one of the top DJs in Canada. He is part of the 2 most established DJ crews in the country – The Eh! Team & The Stylusts – and brings a uniquely Canadian party-rocking experience to every show he plays. Well known for his original remixes and finesse when conceptualizing mixes, his skills have brought him to the best clubs in the world, and covered by the best blogs on the internet. Come see why Dj Illo has been added to every parties Eh list!!
