Hifi Happenings 5.16.13 - 5.19.13
Lads & Lasses,
It’s a long Weekend! May Long weekend! Where the hell did that come from? It’s mid-May already, really? Let’s just play hooky from work on Friday and make this weekend a serious time! It might rain all weekend apparently though, so you might as well stay in town and come dancing right? RIGHT? RIGHT.
∞∞THURSDAY∞∞ We’ve got DJ PUMP returning from his brief stint as a back-up dancer on Sisqo’s latest tour. Ivan Rankic & Dirty Leroy Brown will be backing up Pump tonight! Whatever you do please don’t hum “thong song” in Pump’s ear, he will instantly break into a cold sweat and fall victim to the heebie-jeebies.
∞∞FRIDAY∞∞ It’s officially here, May Long Weekend! We’ve got superstar DJ Heebz aka Brynn Aoki joining the Night Circus crew this week. He jammed with us last week and we had to bring him back. You might know Heebz, he Djs at Commonwealth every Saturday night. A-Mac is also back from the bush, that guys always in the bush. TGIF y’all.
∞∞SATURDAY∞∞ This one is big! KASTLE’s 1st-ever LIVE set in Calgary! This guy is a festival heavyweight. He’s playing at Shambhala this year as well as pretty much every other major festival. We were sent a link of his live set and it was REALLY freaking good! We’ve also got Montreal’s hottest producer KAYTRANADA on the bill! Local heartthrobs Mr. Geography & Gnarcotics opening things up! This is a big one, definitely worth not going camping for;)
∞∞SUNDAY∞∞ Long weekend Sundays are always the best! Sunday Skool gets all the shine it deserves, and DJ RICE always steps it up a couple notches. He’ll have super-percussionist Burnis rippin up the drums with him on Sunday night. Come party on Sunday, just cuz you can!
The HIfi Club – Equally distributing the vibe since 2005.
Hifi hapenings 5.9.13 - 5.12.13
This is the summer of Calgary! So much fun outdoor stuff going on! Can’t wait to jump on my bike and start this thing off with a bang. Sled Island, Mad Decent Block Party, Commonwealth Patio, Broken City Patio, Ship Patio, & the always-comforting dance floor at your favorite watering hole, The Hifi Club.
∞∞THURSDAY∞∞ DJ Apt One may not be a household name in Western Canada, but in the PHILLY/NYC/DC/BMORE region this guy is an icon. He was one of the founding fathers of Moombahton and his edits are revered as some of the best in the game. He has numerous different production aliases such as RCMP (his disco outfit), and he is the head honcho at Young Robots Records. We’re really pumped to bring this guy to Calgary for the 1st time. Smalltown DJs & Ivan Rankic in the mix too!!
∞∞FRIDAY∞∞ We’ve got THE GAFF in town on Friday night. This guy is your favorite DJ’s favorite DJ. Seriously. His “Soul Sisters Stand Up” mix with Skratch Bastid last year was classic and his 45 sets with Vinyl Ritchie are always off the chains. Hosting this one will be Wax Romeo & A-Mac.
--We’re open at 8 on Friday for the IA Legacy fashion show. This is the release of the IA Co clothing line. It’s a big step for Calgary, come check it out!
∞∞SATURDAY∞∞ Vice Magazine is hosting a party in every major city across the country called Downtown Sound. They film a day with the biggest local act from that city having beers & dinner, followed by a show at night. There’s nobody bigger than the DUDES in Calgary, and there’s no bigger up-and-comers than the Mandates. So naturally, come party with those guys on Saturday. This is a unique event to Calgary and it’s FREE! Make sure you RSVP though, that is the only way in.http://rsvp.vice.com/htc/
∞∞SUNDAY∞∞ Sunday Skool is turning 17 at the end of May. I remember that ripe age of 17, a whole world ahead, so many big dreams. Well, Rice has finally seen his baby grow up to be the classiest kid in it’s class. A true pioneer in Calgary’s music scene, since like FOREVER!

Hifi Happenings 4.25.13 - 4.28.13
We are gearing up for a really BIG summer in Calgary! It may be the best one of all time. If you have any plans to go away this summer, I would cancel them immediately and sit in front of your computer. This week we just announced the Mad Decent Block party in Calgary! That one is going to be insane, early bird tickets are already sold out! Next week, Sled Island announces their full line-up, along with the Hifi X Sled block party in East Village! Aaand we can’t forget the Alley Party with Theatre Junction later in the summer! As I said earlier, cancel any and all plans you may have had. N-O-W!
∞∞THURSDAY∞∞ Tonight we welcome BBC Radio 1’s B.TRAITS to Hifi! This lady helped put Canada on the map. From her humble beginnings in Nelson, BC to getting noticed by SHY FX & the Digital Soundboy camp, to becoming the 1st Digital Soundgirl. She now hosts a radio show on BBC 1 and is a tastemaker worldwide! The only time she seems to be in North America is to play major festivals, so we are beyond giddy to have her at Hifi tonight w/ SMALLTOWN DJs!
∞∞FRIDAY∞∞ Fun will be had in copious doses on Friday night with the loving likes of DJ REECE, A MAC, & WAX ROMEO. Speaking of copious doses, you can expect to have a copious doses on great tunes, smiles, libations & vibrations. You will not however get copious doses of negativity, foul odors, attitude or frowns (unless you spend the majority of the night with Mandeep).
∞∞SATURDAY∞∞ Really excited to have PRINCE CLUB play their first Calgary show at Hifi on Saturday night! If you are into the Disclosure/Bondax sound, these guys will really please you! Their super-refined garage/house sound is intoxicating and their sets are rumored to be top notch. These guys are real up-and-comers in the genre and are on their way to the moon! Montreal in the house on Saturday, I love that city!
∞∞SUNDAY∞∞ DJ Rice is gearing up for his big 17-year Anniversary on May 26th! We’re really excited for that one! Rice’s little guy is getting so old. Can’t wait to celebrate with you all in May! Until then, please buy a gift suitable for a 17 year old. Yes, vehicles are allowed.
