Darren Woodhead 

Homebreakin Records / Saunasessions.ca / Intimate Productions 

 Vancouver's Darren Woodhead is a West Coast institution. Having cut his teeth touring Western Canada and the States with punk bands, he picked up DJing from one of his band mates. He then went on to host the now legendary Sauna Sessions podcast, broadcasting live from a mobile sauna party somewhere in East Van, and hosted the hugely popular Signal Saturdays at the now defunkt Lotus Lounge. He was a mainstay at the Renegade stage at another fabled West Coast festival, Soundwave.

Fast forward to the present and Woodhead has played every big festival in Western Canada to much aplomb. Famous for marathon sets at hours no one in their right mind wants to play, Woodhead thrives playing for people who want to keep the vibe alive. Whether the crowd is in the thousands or single digits he makes sure everyone is dancing.

He has been producing in the studio as well, having some great remixes and originals on scene stalwarts Homebreakin' Records, as well as local upstart East Van Digital, and currently co-organizes the hugely popular Body Language Series in Vancouver with other local luminaries like Neighbour.

Aaron Olson

Aaron started Djing back in 1998 at various clubs in and around the Saskatoon, Canada area. His trance/techno mix-tapes garnered him Canada-wide recognition as he acquired multiple 5 star reviews in the prestigious TRIBE MAGAZINE out of Toronto. 

After scouring the country destroying dance floors, Aaron finally settled back down and dove head-first into production. His first single, SUBVERSION, was quickly snapped up by BK's label manager, SCOTT ATTRILL, and released a few months later. It landed in the Top 10 Trance charts on Trackitdown.net for 8 weeks alongside pioneers ARMIN VAN BUUREN, FERRY CORSTEN and NICK SENTIENCE.

Since then, nearly all of Aaron's releases has landed in one or more charts on BEATPORT, TRACKITDOWN or JUNODOWNLOAD. In fact, his second EP, EQUILIBRIUM, was hailed by BEATPORT as, “...one of the best packages of mixes ever to grace TRAFFIC RECORDS...” 

His releases span multiple genre's including Hard Dance, Tech-Trance, Trance, Electro and Techno which have appeared on KUNG FU WAX, NUKLEUZ, RIOT!, TRAFFIC, TECH FU, ELECTRIC SHANDY, CONTACT, GLOBAL STATE, SYSTEM and TRUESPIN RECORDS.

James (PSYCHIC TYPE)

 

 James started on his path towards Ableton domination 3 years ago after he heard Rusko's 'Pro Nails' Remix. Since then, his focus of genre has shifted from dubstep, to moombahton, to trap under 5 different aliases. Finally settling on Psychic Type in early 2013, James shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. His remixes for Hardwell's smash-hit, 'Apollo' and W&W's huge track, 'The Code' both landed in the Beatport top 100 Electro charts, cementing his place in the EDM scene. Subsequent to his pair of widely-supported bangers on Revealed Recordings, he remixed 'Revelation' by the Disco Fries, which was supported by the one-and-only Tiesto at some of the biggest festivals in the US. He has received massive support from the likes of Hardwell, Tiesto, Showtek, the Disco Fries, Excision, and Bro Safari. 2014 is set to be his year, as he is working hard on developing his own sound.
