Vital Radio 182 – Hour 2: Dj Ups & Kukoo Wasp

| October 4th, 2012 | 1 Comment »

Dj Ups and Kukoo Wasps are brothers from the UK who produced and Dj-ed in London England during the boom of the initial rave scene in 1990.

 

After a 13 year break, the guys returned with groundbreaking new albums from Obviously High and The Moog, and EPs from Kukoo Wasp, DJ Ups and Thundermental.

 

A refreshing mixture of nu-skool, progressive breaks, old-skool, deep house, and prog house. In June 2006, WXM Music relocated to Toronto, Canada and evolved into Liquid Stairs.

 

The boys once again hit the decks on the 2012 Liquid Stairs and Vital Radio boatcruise  and showed Toronto what funky house really means.

The 2nd Annual Pier Pressure Boat Cruise – July 17, 2010

| July 21st, 2010 | 1 Comment »

Well it’s Wednesday, and I feel like I’ve finally recovered from this past weekend’s Vital Events / Liquid Stairs boat cruise. We had a great boat run by a really professional crew, and the best crowd we could have asked for. I’ve tried by best to gather pics from everyone that was taking them but I know I’ve missed TONS – so if you’ve got more let me know and I’ll post them up here with the rest.

I honestly can’t identify my standout party moments because the whole thing was so freaking awesome…  that and I had at least 5 beers in the first two hours I was on board. But what I will say is an immense thank you to everyone who partied on the boat with us, and to Andrew Wright (aka DJ Ups) for organizing the cruise. I’m already looking forward to next year.

Drop us a line and let us know your stories from the cruise!

Oh, and something else… How does everyone feel about a rooftop pool party sometime in the near future? Yes/Yes? Let us know ;)

Liberated @ Libra Lounge – May 9, 2010

| May 12th, 2010 | No Comments »

Definitely not the busiest night we’ve seen at Libra Lounge but, by the beard of zeus, was the vibe ever amazing when I showed up. Had to attend an engagement party for two of my good friends so we rolled-in around 12:30 when DJ Ups was wrapping up. The boys had things WELL under control.

One of my favorite things about our lovely Toronto residency is the consistently electric vibe that takes hold of you as soon as you enter the venue. More of the same in a few weeks – I’ll be back at Libra on Saturday, May 29th alongside the always stellar Aren DeJong and your Vital Radio host, DJ Endgame.

I think our camera man was having entirely too much fun to take photos anyhow ;)
