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.
