After just over a year of running a weekly Thursday night at Calgary's most respected underground nightclub, The Hifi, our team has decided to retire the concept and start fresh. Between us all, we've ran countless DJ residencies in almost every club in Calgary since 1999. We know that this type of project takes tremendous effort and what we found was that, a big project like this was taking away the focus on our label, our families and what we love most, the music. But don't fret, we will do more cool events in the future! Look out.
