Music at Night 050 with special guest Ryan Lamont (Monday September 22)

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.

Music at Night 046 with special guest Christian Cambas! (Monday April 28)

Scene-defying player. The original sinner. Christian Cambas is one of the few things that Greece can still be proud to flaunt to the outside world.

From being a Top100 DJ when it actually mattered, to topping Beatport charts, Christian has carved his own path through countless peaks and troughs of this industry. When name dropped now, he is mostly associated with the groundbreaking 1605 label, led by Slovenian Techno overlord Umek.

It’s not all about maintaining that studio tan though. From the days of the San Francisco Love Parade to tours of the Americas, and from countless WMC’s to European sweatboxes, Christian has grown wings of steel and the miles keep clocking.

His discography reads like a who’s-who of trendy (sic) labels. From Toolroom and Great Stuff, to his debut on Bedrock at a year that time forgot, it is quality that’s synonymous with his name and why he doesn’t pump out cookie-cutter tracks by the minute.

Also working behind the shadowy scenes, Christian is also involved in Press & Play which also acts as home to his own label, Sabotage.

Music at Night 041 with special guests Casualties Of Sound (Monday October 28)

Unlettered. One word to describe those who would be ignorant to say that this is just another Toronto-based DJ duo.

Rest in peace, Ronald Gourlay & Alan Guzman. Remembered as those who lived for nothing but the music; addicts who inevitably lost their lives to the dark pressuring timbres of everything house. Multiplying adrenaline levels for the individuals who boast an acquired taste for bass, dishing out an eclectic tonal beat down of sui-generis repertoire.

One simply cannot anticipate what to expect from from this act gig by gig due to the sheer consistency of satisfying curve-balls that are tossed into every set. Combining Ronald’s Toronto roots with Alan’s LA/Toronto upbringing on the scene, the product of their performance is unlike anything you have ever heard before.

Their intent is to pummel you with aggressive tonal force, beaming sheer contentment as they lacerate dance floors with their hard hitting rhythms and sounds of groove so that they can fulfill their only motive – to make their audience Casualties Of Sound as well.
