Music at Night 099 with special guests Daniel Burton and Ryan McDonald (Monday January 27)

Ryan McDonald is no stranger to electronic music, starting as an avid enthusiast of everything electronica since the early nineties, these days Ryan is quickly becoming a front runner in the Toronto House Music community. Having grown up in Toronto (Canada), Ryan was surrounded by one of the most culturally inspiring cities in the world, and has had significant influences in all parts of the musical art-form. Originally a break dancer, and having studied piano at an early age, Ryan is no stranger to the power of musical influence and you can really see it in his programming. Ryan has held numerous residencies and has performed at many different clubs with some of Toronto’s top DJ’s across Toronto, including some of the current hottest spots such as ; Coda, One Loft, Nest, The Government Night Club, Cobra, Revival, Tryst, Wildflower, Ghost Bar (Niagara Falls) as well as many more. He also has done international stints down in Cancun Mexico (Ultra Lounge) and The Domincan Republic (Mangu, Onnos – Santo Domingo and Cabarete), With his sights set on the future, only expect bigger and better things from Ryan in 2020.

First and foremost an enthusiast to all that is house, Dan is one of Toronto’s most promising up and coming DJ’s. Raised in Toronto, he was immediately immersed into a diverse, and very individualistic culture. When he was 8 years old he was given his first musical instrument, the bass guitar, and immediately knew he was going to be doing something with music in his future. By his mid teens he had continued to grow and grasp new concepts into music, and studied music theory both in and out of the classroom environment, developing a deep love of complex rhythms and nuances, and specifically gained interest in jazz and punk rock. One should take notice at his ability to pursue and make ideas become reality- 50 Shades of Red, a punk rock quintet influenced heavily by bands such as the Distillers, Bad Religion, Anti Flag, and bands not found in mainstream culture, (Dan’s First band) ended up being one his most successful ventures, playing all of Toronto’s hottest rock clubs including The Big Bop, The Docks, Koolhaus just to name a few- by the ripe age of 16. In such a performer was born, and Dan has been playing live shows ever since, whether as a bass player, or DJ in the Toronto club circuit.

With his integral blends of techno and tech house influences, Dan knows how to work a crowd. Having worked the Toronto bar/ lounge circuit, Dan is eager and ready to move on to the bigger stage. Being in close environments with DJ’s Nathan Barato, Cam Maxwell, George William, El Duran, Paranoid Jack, Tim Patrick, Iron Mike, Anthony D’Amico, Julien Loreto, Chris Fresque, Rob Lamberti, Maddy Frizzell, Luis Sastre and others – just to name a few- he has quickly progressed in the electronic music community.

Dan is not a rookie in the music industry, he works as a full time producer and Recording Engineer, as well as a touring musician, he knows what to do on the decks, how to work a crowd and to get them excited.

This ex- Audio Creep had a fantastic year in 2009-2010, having done interviews on Scenester radio, and played all over Toronto… including Guvernment, Film lounge, Lily Lounge, LOL lounge, opened for Steve Lawler on New years at Circa 2010, as well as played WMC 2010 w/ international artists Subfractal, Erphun + More. Ready to continue moving forward, look for Dan and his upcoming releases and events!

Music at Night 097 with special guest Subfractal (Monday November 25)

In an age of short attention spans and constant media bombardment, Subfractal have unquestionably cemented their position as powerful techno tastemakers. A burgeoning electronic music scene and a common love of techno brought together Fahad Ahmad and Syed Raza back in ’06 where they met in Toronto, Canada. After collaborating on a handful of projects, the musical chemistry between the duo became evident, and Subfractal was born.

Since then, their brand of brooding, driving, beautifully dark techno has been propelling them up the ranks of the electronic music scene. Their music has reached international audiences through releases on well-respected labels such as Harthouse, Excentric Muzik, Brood Audio, Sleaze Records, Respekt Recordings, Frequenza, Bosphorus Underground CODE, Piso Records, Klimaks, Airbus, Teggno and Inminimax to name a few.

With support from industry heavyweights like Umek, Adam Beyer, Chris Liebing, Speedy J, Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Spektre, Fergie, Erphun, Hernan Cattaneo, Phunk Investigation and so many more, it’s no surprise that Subfractal’s releases routinely appear in the upper echelons of countless worldwide electronic music rankings. Back in 2009, their remix of Larry Power’s ‘Milk’ spent over six weeks in the highly coveted #1 spot on Beatport Minimal. Since then, their releases have seen success in the Top 100 Techno charts on several occasions and expect more to come.

Acclaimed performances at the Winter Music Conference, Detroit Electronic Movement Festival and many clubs around the world including the legendary Tresor in Berlin, have seen Subfractal rip dancefloors apart with their showcases of their booming underground music. Fahad and Syed currently operate out of Toronto and New York City respectively, and continue to demonstrate their versatility. They’re constantly remixing talented artists across various sub-genres of electronic music, and throwing events to showcase the best talent from across the globe. Expectations are flying high for this talented duo and with a plethora of marquee releases and live shows on the way, they’re most definitely up for the challenge.

Supported & Plays:
Adam Beyer, Chris Liebing, Speedy J, Umek, Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Phil Kieran, Noir, Ahmet Sendil, Format:B, Wehbba, Manuel De La Mare, Miniminds, Richard Dinsdale, Erphun, Cari Lekebusch, Patrick Lindsey, Andrew Technique, Eddie Halliwell, Anderson Noise, Tomy DeClerque, Nihil Young, Carlo Lio, Mario Miranda, Alex Young, D-Unity, Eelke kleijn, Desyn Maseilo, Angy Kore, Chus & Ceballos, Roger Sanchez, Marcus Schossow, Alex Dolby among many others.

Mike Conradi began his DJ career in early 1999 and since then has played at countless clubs and events across Ontario Canada alongside some of the biggest names in electronic music. These include numerous main stage performances at the World Electronic Music Festival (WEMF) and at many of Toronto’s legendary venues such as Footwork, Circa, Sound Academy, System Soundbar and more. Over the last 17 years Mike has become well known for his technical mixing and energetic style behind the decks as well as his signature techno/house sound.

Mike is also one half of the DJ/Production duo known as REX MANNING with Christian Poulsen aka Fear The Priest.

The Time Has Come

Friends, the time has come.

I have decided that episode 100 of Music at Night will be my last. I remember the day I got accepted as a resident on DI.FM just about ten years ago. I was overjoyed and excited that I was able to bring my mixes to the world on the planets best dance music website.

Its been quite the journey to watch Digitally Imported grow into the powerhouse that it is now and an honor to share the airwaves with the best djs and producers on the planet. Thank you to everyone at DI.FM and Johan for all their hard work.

If you haven’t already, subscribe to DI.FM Premium. It helps keep the site up and they deserve your support.

Thank you to all the djs and producers that agreed to be guests on my show. I did my best to showcase Canadian talent. You have all been an absolute joy to have on and the show wouldn’t exist without every single one of you.

To the people that tuned in, it was all done for you. Thank you for the messages and words of encouragement. I hope the mixes made you groove.

The next 6 months will be a throwback to the early days of the show. The guests are all close friends and ones that were there since the beginning. The final Music at Night will be a two hour mix of my all time favorite techno tracks during the past 10 years.

Ill still be making the odd mix on my mixcloud ( account but the chances of them being techno mixes are slim. The site will still be up, the past shows will slowly be uploaded to mix cloud but you can still get them free on the music at night website ( and if you are a premium DI.FM user you should still be able to access the back catalog there as well.

Thank you for listening

Brennen Kovic
