Kash, in a few words, is like no other. Born in the Middle East in the late 80’s, he grew up in a conservative household hidden away making Hip Hop and UK Garage mixes on cassette tapes for fun, unaware that music will become a part of his life forever. After a lifetime of not knowing how many genres of music existed, far away from home, Kash first discovered underground electronic music in Montreal Canada in 2008. In 2010, he forced himself into isolation in his current hometown Vancouver BC, where his talents of transforming horizons with music were fully discovered. With a uniquely organic and philosophical approach to music, Kash’s style evolved from a Techno minimalist to breaking boundaries of electronic music without losing his deep-rooted baseline. A style that possesses the hypnotic magnitude that makes people come together in a shared flow state. An approach to performing with undeniable energy, which can be felt over more than just audible senses. A feeling that can be described as dark, yet familiar comfort. Due to his distinctively different sound of Techno K.A.S.H became one of Vancouver’s youngest headliners and promising upcoming artists. K.A.SH’s music can be described as many things, but never monotone or predictable.
Kash is also active in the music community beyond being an artist. He began his career hosting The Kinks & Kicks podcast and founding AstroChimp Music. In 2014 he became the host and resident at Sunwave BC one of Vancouver’s most raved outdoor electronic music events to date. After launching his own record label Mono Grande in 2016, K.A.S.H released his debut album “Made of Kings” (Mono Grande Records). The album was a great introduction to Kash’s production prowess, a masterpiece that took his listeners on a style-bending, and genre-defying journey. Earning him long awaiting notoriety, and worldwide acclaim. His range of tempo had blurred the lines between genres, allowing him to break through the realms of the common Techno DJ. Over time his reputation and, unique approach to music earned him one of the largest followings in Western Canada, along with the support of veteran DJ’s and those who possess an ear for true underground electronic music. Out of the studio and on the stage, is where Kash is truly in his element. Creating energy in every venue that few can parallel. His sound transcends the borders of continents and the mind.
K.A.S.H has shared the stage with outstanding artists such as Nina Kraviz, Tale Of Us, Lucy, DJ T, Erika, Sterac, Guy Gerber, Claude VonStroke, SoulClap, Tanner Ross, POPOF and many more.
Kash always looks to improve and push boundaries with his music. He has done unreleased remixes for artists such as Moby, Gregor Treshor, Josh Wink, Miss Kitten, Smash TV, Timo Mass and his wildly popular remix for Abe Duque. Affiliations with Get Physical (Berlin) – Ovum (USA) – WuSphere (Germany) and AstroChimp Music (CA).

Calgary-born Matt Dauncey aka Neighbour – co-founder of Homebreakin Records and one of Canada’s top deep house producers – combines the raw ecstasy of the early days of disco with razor-sharp futuristic production.
He toured extensively this past year, culminating in an incredible series of festival dates. Brazil’s Universo Paralello, Tribaltech 2012, and D-Edge Sao Paulo were highlights of his South American tour, while stateside he tore up Burning Man 2012 and a series of gigs in California. Back in Canada, he played nine festivals, including Shambhala, Astral Harvest, Bass Coast, Sync, Bushwacked, Kootenanny, Tall Tree Music Festival, and The Kulth. In addition to playing primarily original productions, remixes, and edits, Neighbour has been known to play live synthesizer and electric guitar alongside his legendary DJ sets, which range from no-nonsense electric funk bangers to gorgeous technicolor remixes of classic garage, disco, and house music.
Recent projects include producing and mastering an album for Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation, a new round of tunes with longtime collaborator MC Thinktank, a full length album with his band Red Light Quadrant, and a series of dubs produced for East Vancouver afrobeat band Miami Device.

Nico Stojan is a Berliner, born and raised, and very proud of his roots.
He spent his informative years growing up and exploring a new and unified Berlin in the time just after The Wall came down.
He is classically trained and learnt to play the clarinet and saxophone at a young age. Very soon he became interested in turntables, and by the age of 16 he had honed his mixing skills. More important, was his approach to the turntables. He was as committed with these as with any instrument, and quickly made a name for himself as a skilled turntabilist.
In the early stages of his career his sound was heavily influenced by his love of Jazz, Hip Hop, Soul and Funk. Around this time Nico also started producing music with a MPC60 making Hip Hop beats.
As a producer he has managed to find the perfect harmony between analog & digital, and has brought all of his influences together to create his own sound and groove. Things changed for Nico when he became a resident at the infamous Bar25. Here he morphed his sound into more electronic grooves and incorporated sounds from different genres creating colourful and melodic sets. 2015 saw him release his debut album ‘Twisted Manners’ – described as ‘a piece of work that is both textured in flavour and rich in motive, Nico tells stories in sound that are both electronic in nature and human in touch.’
In 2016 he started the label Ouïe (French for hearing) with long-term friend and producing partner Acid Pauli. This was created as a platform for both to release their own unique sounds and also showcase their friend’s musical talents. Nico is just as likely to be found playing epic sunrise sets at Burning Man – where another one of his projects was born with Holmar, playing under their moniker of ‘Lovestruckk’, as he is hypnotising the white isle of Ibiza
or indeed producing mesmerising tracks over a cup of green tea in his Berlin studio.
Looking forward, expect to see Nico everywhere around the world, exploring creative ways to showcase his sounds and vision of music, whilst always promoting sustainability and eco-friendly vibes.
