TJ Hooker – Live @ Open Studios Feb 11th 2012 (Peter Van Hoesen Show)

TJ Hooker - Live at Open Studios


We are Speechless! what a night!
You had to be there for Peter Van Hoesen… his orders! ;)
but you can still enjoy this capture of TJ Hooker’s amazing set at the close of that magical night in the big concrete box. This recording, like the night itself, is a deep journey through space and time… Ethereal sounds from the mists of time, future and ancient, raw primal rhythms connecting us to each other and the mystery and beauty of the universe… or you know… making us dance!

listen, and be transported.

(Thanks to Tom, for the music and for sharing this recording)

For those who experienced the amazing sounds of DVS1 last year (Subversive room at the W2 moving party) and couldn’t get enough… and for those who just heard about it and felt the pangs of regret…

Subversive is very pleased to announce the return of one very busy DVS1 to our fair city! March 24, 2012 @ Open Studios! Do NOT miss the return of what LWE described as “an unrelenting… treat for a city that doesn’t usually get this kind of rising star techno experience.”

Zak aka DVS1 (devious one) is one of the most prominent figures in the Midwest /US dance music landscape today. A local favorite since the mid nineties…DVS1 continues to move dancefloors with a combination of deep musical knowledge, unparallelled enthusiasm, and a vinyl collection of more than 10,000 records.

Zak’s deep roots and his bold and uncompromising nature have won him great respect as a passionate defender and promoter (HUSH) of quality music. Zak began DJing in New York in the early nineties, focusing on the acid sounds of that time. After relocating to Minneapolis in the mid 90′s his style evolved, like that of techno itself, into something more complex, something deeper and more rhythmic. Today DVS1′s schedule takes him across planet earth. We are very very happy to have him stop in our corner again!

Some of Vancouver finest underground DJ’s are rounding out the night playing their Tribute to TJ Hooker…
Scott W., Austin Phillips, and MITIM.
