The Cocktail Hour ft. Option4

Tonight we’re bringing things back to East Vans best kept secret: The Waldorf Hotel. We’ve had some ups and downs recently Waldorf but I’m more than glad to see you getting back to your old self with tonight’s fine, fine, artists.

It’s a White Noise party motherfuckers. You know how we do. We got the usual suspects PatLok and WMNstudies but also as usual we’ve got some amazing imports and also a very special local addition to the bill. Keeping things fresh on the 45s is East Van’s own, Dunks from The Funk Hunters!

Expect the full funk attack this Friday but I’ve featured those boys plenty on the BBQ so lets talk about Option4! Hailing from Denver, Option4 is hot off a couple of wicked remixes. Like this Sammy Bananas remix (we had Sammy this summer at the Owl!)

Option4 is a dancy tech-house DJ but what I like the most about these Denver dudes is this natural gangsterness to their live mixes. Option4 and other Colorado artists like Pretty Lights and Big Gigantic seem to have this hip hop influence which makes their shows hit a bit harder. Maybe I’m just a sucker for Pharoahe Monche and Snoop samples but I’m really looking forward to him ripping up the basement of the Waldorf.

Here’s your Cocktail Hour! From Option4, in all his rap sampling glory. See you kids tonight.

The Cocktail Hour ft. Cyclist

Lets keep these summer vibes going!

This week we have Cyclist: an indi-disco dance machine, fellow Canuck, and accomplished beard grower. He’s been running a record label called MANI/PEDI since 2013 with the better looking half of  RAC, Karl Kling. Most notably, hes been pumping out some major collaborations with the likes of Goldroom and Maiko Watson but perhaps most importantly is hes playing at the Electric Owl tonight with homeboys WMNSTUDIES and Pat Lok!

Get introduced to this and I’ll cya out on the dance floor!

The Cocktail Hour ft. Pat Lok

I always get excited talking about local talent and homie Pat Lok is no exception. He and WMNSTUDIES throw some of the best regular dance parties in Vancouver. The monthly White Noise party at the Electric Owl has featured some of my favorite artists like Moon Boots and Bit Funk.

But behind it all are two of my favorite openers. I’ve seen them steal the show at places like Celebrities and The Imperial and they never fail to bring feet to the dance floor. So its time to celebrate them!

Check out this Discobelle Mix by Pat. Its full of local originals, remixes, and all around sexiness. Make sure to check out the next White Noise party too!
