On Night 2 of our 25th Anniversary, we're getting FUNKY and bringing a heaping dose of those deep funk grooves to get feet moving, hearts pumping and bodies sweating. Headlining this deep funk mining expedition is one of the worlds foremost protectors of the Funk, the mighty FORT KNOX FIVE. A legend on both coasts, the Washington D.C.-to- B.C. implant's immense talents – both behind the decks and in the production booth – have taken him around the globe, spreading the good word of the Funk. Fort Knox Five sets are always a journey through grooves, taken from every corner of music, regardless of genre, and injected with the signature Fort Knox Five punch. A deservedly beloved act in the world of electronic music, Fort Knox Five hits non-electronic fans right in the heart too, crossing over and winning them festival appearances around the globe – including their yearly throwdown in Shambhala's legendary Fractal Forest. If you like groove in your musical diet, then Fort Knox Five is for you.

We couldn't think of anyone in our city more appropriate to hop on this Thursday night Funk Fest than Victoria's powerful, psychedelic jungle funk monster APEX BREAKS. Since their inception, Apex Breaks has been an unstoppable force on the west coast music scene, scorching dancefloors with their untameable, ultra-colourful full funk assault. It doesn't take more than a few minutes standing in front of any stage that Apex Breaks is inhabiting to feel their power and their unadulterated joy for music. Either you've seen Apex Breaks and it's time for your next does, or you haven't seen them and it's time to get initiated. Also on the bill for our funk party is the Don of Dubversified, MIRAGE (fka Blackout). Not just a master of hip-hop, breaks and G-house, Mirage is a community builder – proven by the strength of the community he's helped facilitate around his creation, Dubversified Culture. We're stoked to welcome him to our stages for the first time as he rounds out this, quite frankly, unmissable bill.

    Dance/Electronic

    Mirage's musical journey mirrors the illusionary nature of sound, bending and refracting across genres, creating an experience that captivates and transcends expectations in the realm of music production. Originally hailing from Québec, Mirage (formerly known as ‘Blackout’) began delving into the fusion of house and hip-hop on the analog grooves of vinyl in 2010. With an innate ability to craft rhythms spanning G-House, breaks, and beats, Mirage seamlessly weaves scratch routines into his bass music tracks, navigating the BPM spectrum from 87 to 175. In his latest exploration, Mirage immerses himself in the depths of 140 bpm and Deep D&B, consistently pushing the boundaries.

     

    Beyond the studio, Mirage is a community-builder in Victoria, B.C.'s music scene. The architect behind Dubversified Culture, he founded this underground community in 2017 with a mission to elevate local West Coast bass artists and forge connections across global Dubstep and House scenes. Mirage's dedication underscores his commitment to navigating the ever-evolving landscape of electronic music.
