The candour in Gordi's songs is matched by a vocal tone that is at once fractured and brimming with richness. Combining vintage vocal layering and earthy guitar textures with delicate modern electronic production, Gordi's sonic palette is one she can call her own.
Jackson Phillips, creating music under the moniker Day Wave, has become one of the most buzzworthy and refreshing artists to burst onto the DIY scene. A departure from his synth-heavy work as one half of electro-pop duo Carousel, Day Wave crafts dreamy, lo-fi, guitar-driven indie-pop that is already turning heads.

As a founding member of the Turntable Monkz, and a certified world champion (2003 DMC World Champion), DJ Dopey (born Jon Ryan Santiago) took the opportunity to tour the world a few times over sharing stages with artists such as Eminem, Hedley, Slum Village, Nelly Furtado, Kardinal Offishall, Dragonette, Steve Aoki and DJ’d for Dead Celebrity Status. He continues his globetrotting by carrying out his seasoned successes as a key group member of Notes to Self, a rap crew from Toronto. Dopey’s found time to be an integral part of their creative process, spending much of his free time off tour in the studio with Notes writing and recording, contributing a few years’ worth of hard work and successfully releasing two albums. As one of Canada’s premiere DJ talents, Dopey was also an integral part of the Gemini Award winning TV show MTV Live.
In his 10 years as a DJ/Turntablist, Dopey has accomplished a great deal; he has “battled” his way to the top, he’s performed alongside the world’s best DJ’s and musicians, and has now taken to the studio portion of being an artist where he now perfects his recorded arts. Dopey is now poised to help present the world to Notes to Self, a rap group that will finally help realize his first official recorded contribution as a commercial release on their debut full-length. DJ Dopey is a rare and humbled talent that will continue to push the limits, not just as a DJ but as a recording artist as well.
Joining Dopey on June 10 is Michael Henry, better known as DJ Marvel, is a renowned DJ, producer and live remixer.
