plus DJ Murge’s Vinyl Voyage and The Funkee Wadd
JPOD the beat chef:
Ever since his first heartbeat JPOD has had music in his soul. His natural sense of rhythm and movement led to a genuine love for
dancing. Equipped with creative motivation and armed with technical knowledge he continues to articulate an original sound rich with flavor. To keep him dancing JPOD consistently makes music with punchy beats and bouncy basslines. But his strong commitment to music with soul has inspired incorporating such vintage sounds as funk, world, reggae, swing, blues, folk, bluegrass, latin, motown and more! With such a range of styles JPOD always takes you on a diverse journey that transforms the dance floor. What could be better than smiling and dancing?
DJ, Producer, label owner, and founder of Victoria’s first ever DJ school, Murge has navigated to notoriety in almost every aspect of the music industry. His eclectic up-tempo sets always keep the party moving, catering to all tastes across the board. If it’s funky it's in his set. He pushes fresh music and new music, seamlessly weaving what's new and hot with classic favorites and is best known for digging up surprises from the past. Murge will be bringing his "Vinyl Voyage" to the Capital Ballroom after drawing rave reviews as the "set of the weekend" at Song and Surf Festival 2018.
The Funkee Wadd:
The Funkee Wadd, born of an extraordinary man deemed Montgomery, and an angelic being by the name Of Mary-Helen, he has come to the western coast of British Columbia to bring one thing, and one thing only, Bass. With a focus on the funk and breaks, he is no stranger to elevating a dance floor with the likes of jungle, fist pumping electro, sexy jacking house, soulful bass music, the glitchiest of glitch hop and anything else that may cause a booty popping effect or head banging tendencies.
