Vancouver Producer's Forum December Edition

thursday, dec 9 / 7pm-10pm / w2 - 151 west cordova

these things at becoming a nice little bit of community for vancouver electronic-based music producers, dj's and the like. here's the full run down from ATMA..

Once again the producer's Forum is free as W2 has graciously offered to host this event as well as sponsor our costs so we can keep these events available to everyone and anyone. A BIG thank you to Michael Red, Irwin Oostindie and Will Stacy for their amazing contributions in the order of the venue and soundsystem as well as the other various equipment we get to use for these events.


this edition's presenters are..


Dialectic is a musician and producer from England, where he developed his eclectic musical influences (ranging from Jazz through Northern Soul, Reggae, Ska, Dub, Blues, Funk, Acid House, Hip House, Drum & Bass and Techno), in the clubs, festivals and raves of the 80's and 90's. His music combines the euphoric melancholy of first generation Detroit Techno with the driving, modulating basslines of Acid House and the atmospherics of Ambient Dub. Dialectic's performance background began with DJing, although he quickly found making his own music, using a combination of guitar, effects, sampling and synthesiser programming provided a more satisfying outlet for personal expression. He has released a number of albums on his own record label, Dialectic Productions. As well as performing live and recording his own music, Dialectic holds a Masters degree in Audio Production from the University of Westminster, and has taught professional courses in engineering, production and recording.
