Summer is still sizzling and we want to celebrate after the final MarketFest of 2016!
The Flamingo Fling will see the best sounding room in town lit up with reggae, dancehall, Moombahton, bass, hip hop and more as performers Erica Dee (who will be making her official Bloom Nightclub debut!), Lorne B, and DJ Dubconscious will be trading off turntable duties all night long!
Cover is just $8 before 11pm and we will have assorted giveaways on hand from local businesses including swag from Kootenay Life, Sea Of Wolves Design, and the newest dispensary in town – The Green Room – plus we’ve also got a few bits of exclusive merch from Shambhala Music Festival to give out to the most memorable tropical-themed costume get-ups! Planned drink specials include rum drinks in young coconuts – more details to be revealed next week!
•• Erica Dee ••
“A honey laced voice with peachy summerday melodies over stick-to-your-ribs beats & sub-synth harmonies’’. The daughter of Bostonian jazz musicians, Erica Dee was saturated in music her entire childhood. Growing up on the west coast of Canada she captured her soundscape amongst an eclectic underground hip-hop and rave culture. Erica began performing with DJs and bands when her desire for understanding the full spectrum of her craft led her to study music in college alongside new pop sensation Kiesza.
Erica began DJing her live set in 2007, which lead to an invite to write and record in Los Angeles by DJ Nu Mark of Jurassic 5. In 2010 she embarked on her first Nation Wide tour with DJ Shadow and released her classic mixtape ‘Golden’, which combines 90’s R&B flavors with nu house and beat music. She has since captivated audiences from Brazil to Israel, and supported artists such as Justin Martin, Thievery Corporation & Quest Love.
2014 was a big year for Erica, Berlin inspired 6 new releases with producers Nicone, Sasha Bremer & Lars Moston on Danze, Suara & Street King records. Erica has started off 2015 working hard to complete her first solo album which will be released with BBE, as well as a new project underway with Lars Moston & Daniel Beaumann. 2015 brought new releases including colabs with Chris Lorenzo, Jason Burns, & Teeko. Erica’s live show is a refreshing experience; she’s an international soultress that’ll lead you to discover the depths of your own heart, swooning you with melody, rhythm, standout ccapella segments, and tastefully selected productions. Catch Erica Dee soon in a city near you!
