He's finally returning to the Okanagan!
Please join us in welcoming the don Deekline to The Habitat on March 16th 2018.
A hero of the underground from the days of his Platinum-selling UK anthem I Don’t Smoke Da Reefer, Deekline oversees a range of Hot Cakes imprints (Hot Cakes, Sludge, Jungle Cakes and the legendary Rat Records) all of which work tirelessly to
propel street level artists into the forefront of the electronic music scene. Deekline is that rare figure in dance music, the seminal producer who balances the cutting edge and the mainstream with effortless flair. Head of the London to
Brighton-spanning Hot Cakes collective of producers, promoters and DJs.
This bass music icon recently released new album Bounce ‘n’ Shake with studio partner in crime Ed Solo, an eclectic tour de force sent down with the kind of assurance one might expect from DJs who have sent bodies flying round the room at club venues across the globe for more than a decade On a live tip, the Hot Cakes parties have achieved the rare feat of blowing up clubs on both sides of the Atlantic, in Miami, Spain and London. He’s also known to put on a rump-shaking boat party or two on the river Thames. This year Deekline has headlined stages at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Nostock and is heading to Breakfast Perth, Austarlia in December 2015. In the studio, Deekline is a bonafide musical shapeshifter, his impressive diversity having seen him rework the likes of Armand Van Helden, Old Dirty Bastard and The Prodigy and the Freestylers. Deekline recently mixed the massive TV advertised New York State Release This Is Bass 2015. He currently manages his own labels Hotcakes, Gutter Gutter, Jungle Cakes championing some of 2015’s biggest bass hits including Its Good To Have The Feeling and Pass Me The Rizla ft. General Levy and Tippa Irie. With support from Annie Mac, Toddla T, MistahJam, Zeds Dead & Skrillex.
Fittingly for a producer whose Hot Cakes brand has become a byword for bassbin-shaking bravado, this is one artist who’s cooking up a storm right now.
Ben Fox Music is a purveyor of deep, infectious dance floor grooves. As an active member of his local community in mountainous Nelson BC, he is no stranger to the peaks and valleys of a small town with a big music scene. His journey as a producer, turntablist, DJ, and MC began in 2002, but his love for music started many beats before that. His deep connection with hip-hop and dance music has born a mixed spectrum sound that will transport your mind, body and soul to a sonic paradise - a world of pure primal rhythmic indulgence. Ben avoids being chained to any single music chapter and this nourishes a shape-shifting book of creativity. Current productions include conscious Hip Hop, House, mid-tempo Bass Music and DnB interweaved with intricate synth work, brooding bass lines, vivid backdrops and a tasteful dose of vocal hook.
Ben has been prolific on stage and in the studio, landing two tracks on the Hypeddit top 20 and an impressive #1 on the Beatport top 100 for Glitch Hop to close 2017. His pedigree includes performing at Shambalaha Music Festival and he has opened for some of the biggest names in the industry such as Method Man, Flux Pavilion and Mix Master Mike to name a few.
When experiencing Ben Fox, expect fully loaded sets that pull on everything from relic psychedelics to pioneering spacetime-shifting vibrations. Strap on a Foxtail, hang on to the walls or each other, while The Fox huffs and puffs and blows the house down.
