In one of the first exciting gigs of 2014, acclaimed DJ/producer Jeremy Sole headlines the Love Supreme launch party on Friday, January 24 at Ginger 62.
Hailing from Los Angeles, Jeremy hosts a show on influential radio station KCRW and co-produces groundbreaking DJ gigs (AfroFunke and TheLift).
Jeremy is on a mission to show how music is a singular universal language, and that each culture’s rhythms and melodies are no more than slang — different accents of the same mother tongue. His DJ sets, remixes and original compositions juxtapose world sounds and experimental beats into a sonic ritual — a celebration of life out loud.
Another lap around the sun, and a new milestone has begun…
Electropical’s 10th year starts Saturday, January 18 at the Backstage Lounge.

Shortest day = longest night! On Saturday, December 21, dance the night away with DJs Marc and Michael as they enter their 10th year of spinning festive beats from all curves of the globe.
It’s the winter solstice edition of Electropical. The concept is quite simple: if you have an office Christmas party that night, please go — it won’t hurt as much as you think.
Then gather your favourite co-workers and bring them down to the Backstage Lounge to bring the party to a new level of fun. We’ll serve up festive beats from all curves of the globe!
Liam MacDonald, Sacha Levin, and Yoro Noukoussi
This just in… For this Saturday’s 9th anniversary edition of Electropical, we’ll have the pleasure and the abundance of three percussionists! Sacha “Percussionista” Levin, Liam MacDonald, and long-time collaborator Yoro Noukoussi will share the stage with us.
They’ll help us celebrate nine years of urban sounds with a tropical edge. Once again, huge thanks to all our musical collaborators, the Backstage Lounge, and — most of all — our many loyal guests who have supported us for almost a decade. We couldn’t do it without you!
Electropical turns nine this month, and we’re gearing up to celebrate.
Join us on Saturday, November 16 at the Backstage Lounge and help us mark nine years of urban sounds with a tropical edge.
We’re working on a special evening for you. More details to come.
Huge thanks to all our musical collaborators, the Backstage Lounge, and — most of all — our many loyal guests who have supported us for almost a decade. We couldn’t do it without you!
We’re excited to announce that our guest percussionist for the October edition of Electropical will be Liam MacDonald.
Liam is a master player of the pandeiro (essentially the tambourine’s Brazilian cousin), and is equally in demand for his drum-set playing as well as his abilities as a multi-percussionist.
He has been working with an extremely eclectic mix of projects in Vancouver — Brazilian, Arabic, fusion — there is no music that Liam cannot play.
Electropicalistas, you’re in for a treat!
Mark your calendars now for the next edition of Electropical on Saturday, October 19 at the Backstage Lounge.
We’ll serve up scintillating sounds from the five continents to the most open-minded and diverse crowd in Vancouver.
New and classic tracks this month from Brussels, Caracas, and Dakar via NYC.
DJ Agent Mulda
Agent Mulda will be our guest DJ at Electropical this Saturday, September 21.
You’ve probably seen Agent Mulda (a.k.a. Tyler Mulder) on the decks at one of the many reggae, soca, and other Afro/Caribbean music events he’s produced in the Lower Mainland over the years. It’s his first appearance at Electropical, and we’re excited about it.
He recently returned from the Grenada Carnival, as well as stops in Trinidad & Tobago, so we’re looking forward to hearing some of the new sounds he picked up along the way.
Join us as we celebrate Vancouver’s epic summer and welcome autumn this Saturday at the Backstage Lounge.
