FRENZY May edition, featuring the Ottawa debut of one of Canada’s fastest rising stars & electronic music’s most promising artists: Ekali. From being the sole Canadian participant chosen for the 2014 Redbull Music Academy in Japan, to his production on Drake’s most recent record setting album, to staggering soundcloud play counts on all his work, and most recent Hypemachine topping remix of What So Not & George Maple… things just keep moving on up for the rising talent.


Undisposable is a theme party concepted by Ottawa’s own Chief Bosompra. Chief has run Undisposable in Toronto, Montreal and New York and is now bringing it back to Ottawa, on Thursday, April 23rd. Coming with him are some of Toronto’s most talented DJs. We will be grabbing visual records of this event, much the same way Chief has done with the material for his limited edition Undisposable book. These pix will be fun shots for the keeping

A huge thank you for your ongoing love over the past 3 years. Now it’s time to celebrate!! The DJs are coming prepped to throw it all down on the dance floor. It will be jammed. It will be sweaty. Reach early. Leave late. Jam time….let’s go!


Spring is springing and we wanna party and dance and PARTY! Come dance the night away while DJ Pat Johnson & PALM D’OR play all those 1990’s tracks we love to sing along too. 90’s hip hop and R&B all night!


The toxic twins; aka DJ Brains4breakfast and Philboy have been throwing the most badass party in the city for years, and it happens the second Friday of every month.  The music is a little hip hop and little glam rock and in combination it is a sweaty debaucherous dance party where bad (good and fun) decisions are the rule.  So after a long work week, Grillz Fridays are the perfect way to let off steam and start living for the weekend.  Check out the mayhem of Grillz and Glam this Friday April 10th.  Here are a few photos of Grillz friends and fam from the March edition.


Fresh is community Hip Hop show that brings in some of the arts that build this community from performers to producers to visual artists and DJs. Check it out on Thursday, April 9th.


On Thursday, April 2nd, Babylon and Girls On Top present “Sit With Us”. Come start the Easter long weekend (where no one works Friday) with a super-fun dance party to prove it’s a Girl World. We are going to make fetch happen by only playing the music of female artists, while having the most socially suicidal dance party ever.

DJ Matt Tamblyn will provide the soundtrack celebrating women in pop music: Taylor Swift, Grimes, Lana Del Rey, Sia, Banks, etc. The music will be a lot fabulous and a little evil, so ladies, do your hair big, with lots of secrets, cause “Sit With Us” will butter your muffin. You don’t need ESPN to know this party will be almost as good as all of Danny DeVito’s work. Doors at 11, $5 cover before midnight.
