The 1975

w/ Sir Sly & Bad Sun
Apr 29, 2014 

Critics have been bemused and thrilled by the Manchester four-piece and their amorphous drifts between brooding art rock, crisp electronica, dancefloor R&B, and 80s gloss pop. “I don’t think it’s confusing,” says singer Matty Healy of his band. “Feeling a lack of identity and the searching within oneself to acquire a real understanding of what you want to be, that’s something that loads of people can connect with. It’s so strange that with music people want so many rules.”

Matty has known what The 1975 is for some years now, just waiting for the right moment to unveil their stories of lust, intoxication and the unabashed grittiness of modern youth. “This record is a proper soundtrack to our formative years,” he says of their debut album, co-produced with Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Foals, The Kooks). “It’s everything that I know and every single song on the album, at some point, has been the most important thing in my life. I’ve spent my adult life working towards this album. It’s literally everything I am.”

FIGURE
with
Stylust Beats and The Upbeats

=============

DOORS 9pm - 18+ ID REQUIRED

=============

Josh Gard has had a long history in music. Just a few short years ago he donned the name Figure and began making electro house, but has since become a regular name in all realms of electronic and dance. Scoring positions among the charts may have gotten him recognition, but a hefty amount of praise has been raining down on him lately as some of the leading artists in electronic music have valued his live performance skills as some of the best in the business. 

In 2011, his Monsters of Drumstep series married his love of horror with his immense production skills to become the soundtrack for the Halloween season. Figure created his own imprint, DOOM Music to house the Monsters series which has now become an annual release. In 2013 FIGURE's monsters series became the official soundtrack to Universal Studio's Hollywood Horror Nights theme park. 

Figure recently signed with OWSLA to release "Horns of the Apocalypse". Horns of the Apocalypse showcases FIGURE'S evolving sound and take on 4/4 dance music with his lead single Eagle. War Call & Beast Mode will remind fans of FIGURE'S signature sound. The EP features DEL The Funky Homosapien (Deltron 3030, Gorillaz, Hieroglyphics) Mr Lif (Definitive Jux) & Nick Thayer (Owsla).

"The direction and influence for the production came from being on tour all of last year and a good chunk of of 2013 so far. The entire EP was written on the road but mastered at my home studio in Indiana using my Neve Racks and Abelton. I'm really looking forward to seeing my fans on tour this fall and hope they all love this release as much as I do." - FIGURE

October 2013 saw the return of FIGURE's highly acclaimed Monster's series, with the release of Monsters Volume 4. Monster's vol. 4 quickly shot up the iTunes/Beatport worldwide charts with key tracks like Are You Afraid Of The Dark ft. Lexi Norton, Living Dead & The Center of Hell ft/ Helicopter Showdown. All in all the album takes listeners on a 13 song trip through the dark world of FIGURE's monsters, and showcases another side of Josh Gard's sound design that ties the LP together with dark interludes like Symphony of the Damned & Death's Gospel. 

When he's not recording in his hometown studios in rural Indiana, Gard is touring worldwide, with packed tents at festivals like EDC, SnowGlobe, Starscape, The Bounce, Creamfields Australia, Tomorrow World, Global Dance, and Belgium's Dour. This Fall he will be on tour again across the US for the "All Black Everything Tour", a co-headline tour with his good friend Crizzly which will span 30+ dates and go from coast to coast.

THIS MAY LONG WEEKEND WITH 2 OF ARMADA MUSIC’S FINEST

ORJAN NILSEN & MARLO

with support from 
SETZIN and HEX

TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE NOW AT TICKETFLY.COM AND ALL REPS

ORJAN NILSEN
http://www.orjannilsen.com/
http://www.facebook.com/orjanmusic

Dedicated, hardworking, and energetic –three words that is probably the best attempt to briefly describe what the Norwegian hot-shot Ørjan Nilsen is about. In the last few years he has been wow’ing audiences across the planet with his take on what a 21st century DJ and producer should be about.

Ørjans work with the dutch label Armada Music started with the track “Red Woods” released in 2006 under his DJ Governor alias, and over the years Ørjan found his groove, flashing samples of his huge potential, with “La Guitarra” (2008), Lovers Lane and So Long Radio (2010). Ørjan went on to release his first artist album in 2011 titled “In My Opinion” which stormed up sales charts and catapulted Ørjan onto the watch-list of every EDM-fan around.

Even though “In My Opinion” was very successful, Ørjan showed no intention of slowing down, quickly releasing mammoth tracks like “Viking”, “Atchoo” (2011) and opening 2012 in collaboration with Armin van Buuren and the aptly titled “Belter” followed by his own “Amsterdam” and “Endymion” before finishing out the year with club-destroyers “Copperfield” and “Filthy Fandango”.

One thing is certain, there is no stopping this Norwegian prodigy, as he is on a mission, be it in the studio or in the DJ booth, Ørjan Nilsen is determined to surprise, amaze and entertain, and you would not want to miss out.

MARLO

http://www.facebook.com/marlomusic

Leaving a mark on charts, dance floors and music enthusiasts the world over, Dutch born MaRLo backs up the #1 Best Trance DJ and #2 overall DJ in Australia with no justification required. From Beatport #1’s escaping the studio to headlining some of the most sought after dance events in the world, MaRLo is influencing trance, tech trance and progressive house music like no other.

With a solid European beginning, now Australian residing MaRLo took inspiration from pioneers Mauro Picotto, Aphex Twin, Ferry Corsten and The Prodigy where the studio came before the shows and a live act was how he ignited. Driving an incredible talent in the studio he has risen to striking heights claiming top chart spots. Signed to Armin van Buuren’s Armada Music, A State of Trance Recordings proudly boast releases that have taken the world by storm, with Armin personally noting that MaRLo knows how to program the best lead sounds.

Recent anthem Boom not only took #3 on Beatport’s paramount ladder but carried its weight when Armin Van Buuren shared a moment with tens of thousands of fans awakening the “Boom dance”, going viral in just days! Just prior to Boom, The Island featuring Jano claimed #1 spot on Beatport while the Megalodon and Lightning EP’s both upheld strong spots also. Claiming top 10 glory is the anticipated mid year release from MaRLo-Always Be Around breaching the norms globally.

In the remix world, fellow artists demand the finesse of MaRLo following the success of Ferry Corsten’s Punk winning over #3 spot on Beatport while the remix of Armin Van Buuren presents Gaia’s Stellar stole away the prize at #5. Dash Berlin has too created hype around this dominating artist with his remix for Like Spinning Plates featuring Emma Hewitt while W&W too were enlightened by MaRLo’s remix of Impact.

The future holds an explosion of musical glory at the MaRLo camp where anticipated releases fused with epic spots on the world’s most incredible electronic events will take charge and wont be slowing down.

Joel Plaskett Emergency + Guests 

Friday, June 20th

Tickets $30

The Polaris Music Prize nominated Joel Plaskett is, simply, one of Canada's best, most prolific and enduring songwriters. With a discography overflowing with perfectly penned rock n' roll Canadiana and a stage presence and charisma that we might be so bold as to say calls to mind the great Jonathan Richman, it's no wonder that Plaskett has found a way to skillfully transform over his now more than twenty year musical career; from his Sloan-ape-ing come Led Zeppelin channeling days in Thrush Hermit to his more experimental turns in Neuseiland to his current stint as iconic, proudly Canadian troubadour.

 
Jun 21, 2014

St. Vincent + Guests 

Tickets $30

St. Vincent is well along her transition from a bit of an art pop oddity to a full-blown pop star. With distinctive guitar playing, highly complex arrangements and an uncanny ability to dissect the entire history of pop music and put it back together in the way it probably always should have been, not to mention a resume including dream-collaborations with David Byrne and Swans, the multi-instrumentalist Annie Erin Clark may in fact be the artist to make a 21st century alternate reality in which good music dominates the airwaves a little less science fiction.

UNIONELECTRONIC and INK are pleased to welcome back chart-topping trance duo 

W&W 

June 30th, 2014,

to headline our Canada Day Celebration at Flames Central!

After a chance meeting up back in 2007 Willem van Hanegem & Ward van der Harst came together to form W&W and they haven't looked back since. The past seven years have seen this Dutch production and DJ duo transcend the boundaries of genre and traverse the globe with their music and performances.

Fusing styles and mixing influences W&W combine the uplifting and melodic elements of trance with the raw intensity of electro and progressiveness of house to create a sound uniquely their own. Infectious, rebellious and highly energetic, their list of productions is championed by the likes of Hardwell, Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, David Guetta and more for its breadth, diversity and massive appeal to multiple audiences.

From their earlier works like the deep ‚Impact’, to the acid-rubbed 'AK-47', synth-driven 'Moscow' and floor pounding 'Shotgun', to later projects like 'Invasion', voted as official anthem for the „A State Of Trance 550” world tour, 'Lift Off', the embodiment of their multidimensional sound, 'D# Fat', their highly acclaimed collaboration with Armin van Buuren, the massive 'Jumper' with Hardwell, Beatport #1 smash 'The Code' with Ummet Ozcan (which became the most played track of Miami Music Week 2013), their chart topping remix of Armin van Buuren's 'This Is What It Feels Like' feat. Trevor Guthrie and the official AMF (Amsterdam Music Festival) anthem 'Thunder’, it's clear each of the tunes leaving the W&W studios is a sure-shot of dance floor thrill.

As DJs, currently #14 in the DJ Mag Top 100, they are also dominating dance floors and festivals the world over. 2013 featured a hugely successful Miami Music Week, a participation in the ASOT600 world tour which ended at a sold out Madison Square Garden, and other festivals such as Tomorrowland/World, Electric Zoo, Ultra, Stereosonic and an Ibiza residency at Privilege to name a few. W&W even became first ever dance music act to perform at a Major League Baseball stadium when they took over Philadelphia Phillies Citizen’s Bank Ball Park for a two-hour set. And this year, their headlining status at the world's most leading festival and clubs is about to get even bigger.

If that wasn't enough, W&W continues to prove their status as innovators and tastemakers in the scene by also curating releases for their Mainstage Music label, and their popular weekly Mainstage Podcast.

2014 will take things to even new heights as kick things into high gear with the February release of – “BIGFOOT” – and launch of their brand new Las Vegas residency at Hakkasan.
