Scratch-master extraordinaire. Jack of genres. UK bass maestro and party-rocking legend JIMI NEEDLES makes his return to Victoria! The last time the Ghetto Funk impresario touched down in Victoria, he made his Canadian debut as part of Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest XIX where he set Lucky Bar on fire with an unforgettable set that had us all dripping with sweat by the end. In the time he's been away, his reputation as a world-class DJ and producer has only grown, with festival appearances and headline gigs all around Europe. Every Jimi Needles show is a journey through groove – drum 'n' bass, hip-hop, future funk, disco, reggae, breaks – and we can't wait to see what he brings to Victoria for his triumphant return!

We are also stoked to welcome our friend BOUSADA back to the Rubber Boot for this throw down. One of our city's most engaging performers, BOUSADA always brings the rhythms to get you movin' and to make you feel. His deep rivers of groove sway and wind in ways that make your waist do the same thing. For this Saturday night, the BOUSADA family will be taking the stage a trio for even more of that musical community that BOUSADA fosters wherever he sets up and gets down. And kicking things off for the evening is one of the city's freshest drum 'n' bass acts, Frequency and Fever, who'll be starting things off with a blast of dnb featuring synths, live mixing and live drums for a extra blast of energy to get things started!

  • JIMI NEEDLES

    JIMI NEEDLES

    Funky Breaks

    The original turntable trickster and funk maestro, the award-winning Jimi Needles is the London party-starter DJ of choice. Jimi's musical origins are routed in hip hop, soul, funk and disco but brings to the turntables a fusion of pin-point scratching, breaks & bass music. His cut-n-paste antics leave virtually no genre untouched creating the ultimate live soundtrack whilst always showing recognition to old school and retro classics.

    He’s best known for his intricate genre-spanning party mixtapes, deck-defying festival sets and his array of varied bootlegs & original productions on labels such as Rocstar, Bombstrikes, Respect Music & Jungle Strikes. 2015 saw Jimi take on huge stages at Glastonbury, Shambala and Blissfields as a solo artist, and an extensive tour with his soul band Ephemerals (Jalapeño Records). He's previously toured Australia, Europe & Russia, whilst holding down residencies and his own club nights within London.
  • BOUSADA

    BOUSADA

    Dub

    BOUSADA is a one-of-a-kind live electronic music collective based out of Victoria, BC. Combining elements of hip hop, jazz, RnB and electronica, the live show is high-energy, high vibe and guaranteed to get people dancing. Fronted by the masterful looper Graeme Bousada (Vox/keys), the show is built upon his live loops which he builds on the fly with a midi keyboard and a drum pad. Unlike most producers, his use of pre-recorded tracks is incredibly sparse, preferring the spontaneity and challenge of building all of the music from the ground up. A longtime singer-songwriter and incredible showman, his thoughtful lyrics and raw enthusiasm are infectious and create a vibe that totally enraptures audiences. Transitioning smoothly from song to song, Graeme performs sets of all original music as if he were a DJ, perfectly walking the line between the two musical worlds.

    Although BOUSADA was started as a solo endeavor, Graeme soon teamed up with Mikey Viperteeth (saxophone/MC), a trained jazz musician and swaglord, to push the project to the next-level. The dynamic between Viperteeth and BOUSADA is impressive, combining Graeme’s masterful live looping with Viperteeth’s skillful playing and MCing. Although fully capable of rocking the party themselves, the duo regularly invite other musicians to sit in with them, meaning BOUSADA can swell from a duo to a megalithic dance party machine of 10 members at times. The rotating cast of friends and musicians that join them are affectionately known as The Bousada Family, a musical collective and group of friends that feature many of Victoria’s top musicians. As a result, BOUSADA’s shows are constantly evolving, incredibly dynamic and always vibing. 
  • FREQUENCY & FEVER

    FREQUENCY & FEVER

    Drum 'n' Bass

    Consisting of internationally recognized drum n' bass drummer Ydna Murd and Canadian born producer Guata08, Frequency and Fever are Vancouver Island's freshest bass duo mixing live drum and electronic beats.
