Alain Jackinsky - 20:00 • 23:00
Alberta native Alain Jackinsky has been living in Montréal for more than 15 years. Over the years, he’s acquired a solid reputation among his peers, who instantly recognized the quality of his mixing techniques and the value of his contributions in the recording studio. Alain is really passionate about house music, and his energy in the DJ booth often explodes into renditions of sparkling-hot sound textures that favour the multilayered rhythms of vocal, tribal, progressive and tech house. Alain’s current influences derive from the likes of today’s international key figures in the house music scene. But make no mistake, Alain has always succeeded in setting himself apart with his sulphuric style and sharp musical inspiration.
Chus & Ceballos - 17:00 • 20:00
Chus & Ceballos are without a doubt Spain’s most solid and professional DJs/producers. Hailed worldwide for their excellent production work, including official remixes for Madonna and other world-renowned artists, they display a remarkable versatility that allows them to play anywhere, from the smallest club to the largest festival. Their marathon DJ sets capture their genuine Iberican character, their style harmoniously blending house and techno. Throughout the past decade, they have been the pioneers and creators of the underground movement known as the “Iberican sound.” The result has been the prologue to an important saga for the artists and producers who have chosen tribal as their way of life.
Marina - 13:00 • 17:00
Born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario and now living in Montréal, her passion for DJing came to life in 2014 with her premiere at Flirt 2, put on by Eve Productions. This propelled her to play at Toastr: World Pride Edition, Drama Queen (Velvet and Peopl Nightclub), B.Y.O.L. 2015 Edition, Montréal Pride’s 2015 parade for Armada RFC, Club Unity Montréal, Play Montréal and, most recently, Circus Afterhours, in March 2016. Marina had the opportunity to provide music for several private parties and also has regular gig at Club de tennis Île des Sœurs benefiting the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Québec. Listen for her sexy vocals and and techno-tribal beats — they’ll keep you on the dance floor!
