"A Revolution without dancing is not a Revolution worth having"
Internationally acclaimed electronic musician, and vocalist; AppleCat was raised on the West-Coast of Canada, specializing in Deep Dubstep, Fairytale Bass, Trap, and World influences. On the dancefloor, she weaves a mystic underworld vibe - stating that her intention is to " have us all come out the other side moved in some way - the kind of movement that is far beyond being solely physical."
Grime and poetic grace, with live mashup & reworks, AppleCat blends cinematic sound, with primal bass. This cosmic booty bouncing dubwitch sets bend the perception of "genre" exemplifying her unparalleled "je ne sais quoi.”
A 20+ year veteran of the Canadian west-coast intentional dance scene, Khan's sets are designed to take the dancer on a journey, with beautiful middle eastern melodies & deep bass, meandering thru mystical landscapes. He is a master of the live mix, seamlessly blending loops and layers, weaving epic soundscapes on the fly from the raw elements of his carefully selected tracks, while building the energy of the dance floor to its peak. His mission is to facilitate deep, transcendent journeys that bring dancers to a state of higher consciousness, awakening and deepening into the mystery of the dance, and to spread his conscious groove to as many souls as he can reach along the way. From peak sets to early morning transformations to glorious daytime throw-downs, Khan can bring life to any dance floor. Hailing from the Victoria on Canada's west-coast and a summer festival favorite, Khan's infectious spirit is sure to give rise to some serious magic on the dance floor and beyond.
Cicadas have prominent eyes set wide apart, short antennae, and membranous front wings. They have an exceptionally loud song, produced in most species by the rapid buckling and unbuckling of drumlike tymbals. Most cicadas are cryptic. This particular species has an affinity for dark and deep subterranean beats.
