The Hifi Club & Substation are proud to present: Moon Boots w/ Sonny Chiba & Rusty Meeks
Moon Boots entered the world in the mid-1980s via Cape Canaveral. After years of service as the preferred footwear of celebrity astronauts (notably Tom Hanks), Moon Boots came to life during a classified experiment aboard the International Space Station. Little is known of what actually transpired aboard the shuttle, but in short, Moon Boots became a sentient creature, equipped with reason, intuition, and groove. Before long, he grew tired of working for the space-military-industrial complex and found solace in the soothing sounds of underground disco and R&B boogie records. He knew it was only of matter of time before he was hung up like so many boots before him. He abandoned the program and used his savings to build a studio in an unnamed location, where he is currently working.

The Hifi Club is proud to present: Djemba Djemba & GANZ
Tickets are available online and at Luke's Drug Mart, Grass Roots Kensington & Sloth Records
Djemba Djemba is music born from a state of permanent contradiction, held together by one underlying and adaptive principle: rhythm. Experimenting with polyrhythms, 90’s FM synths, and the all-important 808 Kick, Djemba Djemba crafts a sound that is both intelligent and brain numbing.
It’s easy to detect the influence of UK Bass music currently dominating clubs, yet at the same time feel altogether new, and in stride with the response taking place in New York, Chicago, Boston, and his home in Los Angeles.
With releases on Mad Decent, his own imprint Rabbit Records, and Beat Team Supreme, Djemba’s music has been supported by the likes of Diplo, The Gaslamp Killer, Rusko, Baauer, Obey City, Major Lazer, Paul Devro, and BBC Radio 1. With exciting collaborations in the works with some of the biggest names in EDM, and his finger on the pulse of the latest dance music via his co-club night The Melt, Djemba Djemba certainly has a few surprises on the horizon.”
GANZ: Despite being only 24, Dutchman Jordy Saämena has already achieved and accomplished many things. As a child he first became conscious of the wider musical world when listening to hip hop, old soul and garage and soon began drumming. It was a desire to create the full song, not just the bottom end, that turned Jordy onto production. Now, eight or so years later, he has switched with great skill and style between a number of different genres.
In 2012 the musician and producer began studying Electronic Music at The Conservatory in Haarlem and soon became infatuated with bass. This is no surprise given Jordy’s Moluccan heritage, a culture that is known for laying down exciting rhythms on traditional local drum, the Tifa.
It was at this moment that he dreamt up new moniker GANZ (also known as GANZ GVNZ, IAMGANZ or GANZEE) and began crafting the creations we hear today. This music he makes, inspired by peers like Rustie and Hudson Mohawke, is a melange of beats and bass, R&B smoothness with hip hop rhythms and so far has been released on labels like Terrorhythm Recordings, Bmkltsch Rcrds, Saturate! Records and HW&W.

The Hifi Club is proud to present: Gorgon City w/ Smalltown Djs, Ivan Rankic & Yung Sioux
Two men, one mission: Gorgon City strut with a salubrious yet sordid sound. Polished, powerful and party-minded, it’s already caught the ears of tastemakers as disparate as Diplo, DJ T and Terry Farley. Heavy hip-swinging rhythms meet butt-shaking bass, their sweet, sassy metropolitan mayhem celebrates the very best aspects of the mid-tempo melting pot that makes girls wriggle and boys giggle from San Antonio to San Francisco.
Inspired by the endless groove possibilities when house, garage and bass music go toe-to-toe, Gorgon City’s distinctive sound is a logical development of the duo’s individual work as Foamo and RackNRuin. Both respected and renowned for their electrifying bottom-end workouts, it’s a platform for the North London producers to fuse the deeper, sexier sounds they’ve been excited by for years but not yet had the opportunity to explore.
You can thank their strict diet of jungle, house, grime, hip-hop and garage while growing up. You can thank the many messy sessions they’ve spent DJing on the White Isle. You can thank the fluidity the pair vibe with when together in the studio. Either way, this exciting new project is the sum of their many influences, inspirations and ideas; and right now they’ve only just scratched the surface.
The Hifi Club is proud to present: Jesse Rose
Jesse Rose was raised on Motown soul, jazz and eighties funk in London, moving to Bristol to begin throwing club nights with old friend Jamie Anderson at the beginning of the nineties.

The Hifi Club is proud to present: Walshy Fire
Highly renowned and respected throughout the Caribbean music universe as a double-threat MC and selector for Miami’s Grammy winning Black Chiney Sound System, Walshy is the master of ceremonies for genre-bending dancehall carnival, Major Lazer, touring alongside Diplo &The Jillionaire. Originally from Jamaica, Walshy had the #1 show in Miami radio for ten years running.
As an MC he toured for 8 years with the trailblazing Black Chiney sound system cited as a significant influence on the evolution of Major Lazer with its “mash ups” that blended hip hop or R&B rhythms with reggae artist vocal tracks. Mix tapes that Black Chiney sound developed were the trainingground for Walshy to become a sought-after remix producer and advocate for some of music’s lesser known artists, giving them a platform to be introduced to a wider audience.
He’s released dozens of innovative mix compilations, remixes of songs and single-artist mixes for artists like Chronixx whose Walshy Fire Presents: Start A Fire mix has surpassed 1 million plays. Since 2012 Walshy has toured with Major Lazer performing on some of the world’s most prestigious stages and contributing on the production of the most recent two Major Lazer albums: FREE THE UNIVERSE and PEACE IS THE MISSION. Maintaining a vigorous schedule as a solo DJ when not on tour or in production with Major Lazer, Walshy originated the concept “Future Dancehall” with its roots in Jamaica’s sound system culture and the touchstone for the Walshy Fire Presents record label.
When it comes down to all the hype, his name says it all. He is Worthy. With an in-depth knowledge of production, mixing, and performance, Worthy has the insight to play for his audience, cultivating intense positive energy on the dance floor. From salty aired islands to dark club basements, over the past 10 years, Worthy has paid reverence to the traditional form of classic house while tripping off the mark and sinking into the euphoric less-charted territories of booty-clapping bass. As Carl Cox said, "The Worthy sound has always been powerful, rocking, funky, bass-driven music at its best, and for me this is the new wave in house music." He establishes an energetic dance floor camaraderie that makes even the most skeptic hater’s booty shake.
The Hifi Club & Smalltown Djs are proud to present: My People feat: Ardalan, Smalltown Djs & Sacha Robotti
My People is a place for friends to gather and enjoy good company while appreciating the best new sounds.
We're excited to welcome Ardalan from San Francisco's Dirtybird Crew.
Range, appeal and a massive dose of nasty, gritty bass are the three chief weapons every Dirtybird artist has in his quiver, but Ardalan seems to be the peak culmination of all those assets in one wieldy point. This young archer has had the incomprehensible luck to fall into crew with his idols, be reared by their best and given some of their most guarded musical secrets, then hoisted to a platform to blare his prodigious beats from places where most creators can only dream of being.
Born in Tehran, Iran, Ardalan Noghre-Kar possesses a peculiar, fresh perspective on music genesis without even trying. His mixes, remixes and dubs are known for their sass, energy and wickedly wry samples that snap like a wet towel to the face, but his original tracks are where his efforts shine, like those released with Justin Martin-“Mr. Spock,” a 2010 party anthem charted by Diplo and Jesse Rose, and “Lezgo,” charted by Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boyz Noise)-and those soon-to-be-released on his own EP with Dirtybird. It's no wonder he's been given the nod by everyone from Papa Dirtybird himself (Claude Von Stroke) and A-Trak to those who are charting his remixes, like Maya Jane Coles, Audiojack, and Riva Starr, the last of whom he has an upcoming remix for to be released on Snatch.
The greatest strength in Ardy's music is his ability to whip out hits that work equally well from the dankest basements to the most opulent dancefloors; sounds that satisfy those with diverse tastes who can unite under his single agenda of having a good time.
Always pushing new boundaries, always traveling through time and space, The Clap is on a mission to change the world one dance floor at a time. Dr. Funkenstein has taught us well: free your mind, and your ass will follow.
