Music at Night 062 with special guest EricB (Monday February 22)

Eric has been an avid electronic music lover and DJ enthusiast since he was 15 years old. Despite not growing up with any classical music or instrument training, he has always had a passion for mixing. Early experiments with Fruity Loops and Mixmeister helped him to learn the bare bones basics of putting music together, before exposure to the Toronto nightlife later on in his mid-twenties stoked the fire for taking the steps to becoming a DJ.

After a short stint working as a promoter for Toronto’s Footwork nightclub, he fell in love with the techno and tech-house sounds and artists the club had become all too familiar for. Purchasing his first piece of equipment in 2013, Eric quickly began practicing and crafting his technique. Mostly known for playing at private parties (with a few brief stops at locales such as Lil’y Lounge, The Stirling Room and Harlem Underground), he now aims to expand further into the club community with his unique take on techno and tech house.

Eric remains an active and driven participant in the community, having launched a small local promotions and events company in 2014 under the moniker of Ongaku Entertainment. Since then, the company has worked with a number of artists including Bart Skils, D-Unity, Weska and Guyus Grey. The fledgling promotions outfit is currently focused on supporting new, local talent while expanding an ever growing roster of DJs in 2016.

Currently residing in Hamilton after moving from Toronto in late 2015, Eric hopes to extend his reach not only throughout the GTA, but also to his newfound local community that is maturing at a very fast pace.

Music at Night 059 with special guest Ryan Lamont (Monday October 26)

Like many artists of his generation, the origin of Ryan Lamont’s style as a DJ and producer can be traced back to his exposure to the creatively fertile ground that was the Toronto warehouse party and rave scene of the mid to late 1990s. Incredibly moved by his first encounters with the culture and deeply inspired by the creative possibilities of electronic music in general, it wasn’t long before Ryan found himself behind decks dabbling with the sounds of progressive trance,U.K Hard House and Breaks. Within a few short years, however Ryan’s style made of notable shift, gradually becoming more influenced by Toronto, Ontario’s flourishing, yet relatively unknown, Techno scene and maturing into the unique and driving sound he is most commonly known for today. His sly mixing and intuitive approach to track selection started generating a powerful response from dance floors, and it wasn’t long before the serious gurus started to take notice. At the ripe young age of 21 he got his first major break DJing for Dose productions, and from there things only seemed to go up. By 2001 Ryan was already being booked at several highly esteemed clubs in Toronto such as Turbo and System SoundBar, and became a veritable household name in Ontario’s techno community, occupying several establishments such as legendary venues as Space, D2, Felicity’s and The Purple Room. Soon enough he took on the world, playing at several premier events in Greece, Ukraine, England, Germany and the United States.
