Born and raised on grunge, punk, and hardstyle beats, Steve pushes the boundaries of what 130 beats per minute can do to a dance floor. Dark, driving, progressive bass lines are key to his performances and productions and are reflective of his many influences in the prog tech and techno scene.

As the year went on, top local DJ’s took notice and with their help he got his first show in September 2000 and had also expanded his record collection to include such styles as House, Electro, Techno, Trance, Breaks & pretty much everything in between. He quickly rose up in the ranks and had become a local favorite due to his skills and how he handled himself on stage.

J.A.DJ is a MUST SEE and he will have your event goers patting you on the back for booking him.
Canadian born in Edmonton, Alberta and raised in the prairie city of Winnipeg, Ninjette is a heavy hitter in the Western Canadian bass music scene. Currently residing in a city of rain forest, mountains and ocean; Vancouver, British Columbia. As a youth she spent most of her spare time studying classical music theory and training as a
vocalist in several reputable choirs as well as solo festival vocal competitions. She has always put music first, even as a child.
As a teenager she discovered the electronic dance music scene and never looked back. Staying involved in most of the major EDM club nights throughout the city of Winnipeg over the course of several years, she used her drive and ambition to become a leader in the underground afterhours scene as an event promoter. Being surrounded by talented DJs and producers, and putting her classical music career on the side to accommodate her new found love for electronic music, the next step that only made sense was to get behind the decks and spin up a storm. Observing her local influences as well as international artists to develop her ninja skills, she launched her blossoming DJ career and spread her love of mixing and music across the country. Rocking out the electro, bassline and fidget house sounds.
In 2009 she found her new place in Western Canada and dove head first into the bass heavy drum genres and incorporating live vocals into her performances. She later developed and maintained a solid festival circuit, gracing stages such as SYNCfest, The Groove, Motion Notion, Connect, Mad Hatter and Sexy Sounds and sharing stages with reputable artists including Aphrodite, Dirtyphonics, Bare Noise, Ill Gates, Sticky Buds and many others. This Miss is a force to be reckoned with. She presently holds a position as Talent and Operations Manager of Sexy Sounds Music Festival, responsible for booking the largest entirely female DJ and performer line up that Canada has ever seen.
Although the Canadian scene has been full of opportunity for her, let that not be the end all be all. February 2012 began her Central American tour, offering further exposure all across Costa Rica and Panama. Kicking off the summer season with a bang, DnB Girls of Canada presented the 2012 Bass Belle Western Canada tour featuring Ninjette, Crystal Fresh, Jams, Mittz and Isis Graham.
Stay tuned for Ninjette in a city or music festival near you. Behind the decks her passion and energy inspires the dancer that lurks within us all with the grimiest high energy beats guaranteed to burn a hole in your shoes.

<sarcasm>oh, the rain is back? oh no! that sucks so bad, I miss the sun, oh man! I hate the rain!</sarcasm>
Why hate on the rain so much, people who live here? The rain is important and this Sunday, if you slog through it, you can witness a Sunday Service dedicated to the appreciation of the rain and rain related topics.
Taz VanRassel will perform his infamous “Rhianna Medley Rain Dance” Boylesque number (everyone in the audience will given a squirt bottle)
Kevin Lee will show everyone how to make home made galoshes out of old galoshes!
Emmett Hall will force everyone to do that soundscape that sounds like a rainstorm that you probably had to do in elementary school music class. You know, the one where everyone sits in a circle and starts by patting on the floor and then it builds to clapping? It’s super tedious and super boring.
Caitlin Howden will show a power point presentation on famous parades that have been rained on and the effects thereof.
and special guest Mark Chavez will woefully stare out the window and think longingly of his home state of New Mexico and wonder:
WILL THE FUCKING RAIN EVER STOP???*
This sunday, 9pm, 53 W. Broadway
