Beats Without Borders is celebrating it's 7th anniversary by presenting 2 shows on back to back nights with 2 of our favorite International artists!!!
Part 2 of the Celebration takes place on Friday Oct. 21st with very special guests from the magical land down under, our good friends... Oka!
They hypnotized us with their signature Electro-Organic sound at their sold out Biltmore show last Fall, and we are thrilled to welcome them back for a return engagement as part of our 7th Anniversary Celebration!
We certainly have had A LOT of requests to get them back.
BWB resident Nils will get the ball rolling by playing the first set of the night.
DJ Soo, one of Vancouvers most versatile and reliable DJ's, will take over from there and is sure to get the dance floor simmering before turning things over to up and coming Vancouver Funk sensations... The Funk Hunters! who are sure to bring things to a full boil!
In just a few short years, The Funk Hunters have built an international following, releasing music on labels around the globe and showcasing their signature high-energy DJ sets at some of the world's most popular music festivals and clubs.
The duo (Dunks & The Outlier) first teamed up because of a mutual love for "Hunting" good music, and today this passion still rings true as they continue to champion the simple but often lost idea that the music itself comes first, regardless of attachments to era or genre.
The Funk Hunters create original sets never replicated. It's not uncommon to find this duo headlining an all bass music festival one night and then performing a funk, soul, or boogie set the next. They have toured across Canada multiple times, played to crowds of thousands at renowned festivals such as Shambhala Music Festival and have been invited to share the stage with musical pioneers like Z-Trip, RJD2, Cut Chemist, and most recently De La Soul.
In 2010, they completed their first month-long international tour, playing shows across the country of Brazil.
We're stoked to have them sharing their talents for the first time at a Beats Without Borders event.
VJ Electrabelle will once again be creating the Visual Environment for this event.
Tickets cost $16 + s/c in advance and more at the door.
