What is a Listening Party?

Our listening party series is a monthly gathering where we come together in a casual setting to listen to music which has been submitted by local artists leading up to the event. Each event we gain knowledge from a keynote speaker on a range of topics relevant to pushing the music scene forward in Vancouver. These events are informal affairs, not simply for producers, but anyone who enjoys and appreciates local music.

What Is Groundwerk?

Groundwerk Vancouver is a group of electronic music enthusiasts passionate about showcasing local arts and nurturing community. Our goal is to host events that serve as a hub for our community to grow by encouraging creativity, sharing knowledge, creating mentorships and fostering new connections between both newcomers and veterans in Vancouver’s music scene.

Emerging from his own distinct corner of the West Coast electronic music scene, Random Rab offers a powerful and unique contribution to sonic exploration. Often referred to as “The Master of Emotion” his music is patently beautiful and melodic. With diverse influences ranging from trip-hop, classical and Arabic to bass driven compositions, his songs are considered anthemic and timeless. As a multi-instrumentalist and singer, his tracks are organic, uplifting and stand on their own as a distinct genre. Listeners of all types of music can find something they can relate to in his sound. He has toured extensively across North America, including tours with Bassnectar, Shpongle, Emancipator, Beats Antique, and has headlined dozens of festivals across the U.S. and internationally.

Timely selections, diversity in tempos, subtle to vast, variance in styles and shades from utter darkness to blindingly light is what makes Matsya’s sets unique and tastefully unpredictable. From atmospheric ambience to current dance beats and sound design, Matsya’s refined palette does not go unnoticed.
For over a decade now, he has been involved from the ground up with festivals and events where he has been playing Dj sets for yearly meetings. Shambhala Music Festival, Bass Coast, The Field, Luminosity Gathering, Diversity Festival, Motion Notion and more have witnessed his eclectic musical journeys. Matsya is also an event curator and promoter with noticeable events such as Aurora Sensoralis, Living Spheres, Inflorescence, Mythodical and Silhouette. Originally from Québec, Matsya now lives on Salt Spring Island, DJS, facilitates contact improvisation dance and dwells in the gardens.

Firewood Poetry
Firewood Poetry is a blend of Electronica and the open sea. It is the combination of a lonely day and the warmth of a fire. It is soft, and sharp. It will cut your scars and make them deeper, but kiss you tenderly as you bleed.

“Trinity Firewood has smooth, tasteful groove with deep journey, full lyrics sung with sweet class and true heart.” – Ganga Giri

“Hauntingly beautiful, dreamy downtemp. Part of a new wave of ambient artists pushing the boundaries of spoken word, looping, and electronics. Firewood Poetry is lush.” adham shaikh

A Nightmare On Hastings

Damp NightlifeFemme Fatale & High Etiquette invite you to the darkest corners of East Van, for a dance that may be your last..

Introducing the heroine of everything Deep, Dark & Dangerous

Khiva [Vancouver] – Deep, Dark & Dangerous

Honouring a deep longing to convey a passion that arises from somewhere far beneath a visible reality, Khiva attempts to bring the deep rooted to the surface. Finding her true love within sonic sculpture, and nurturing a propensity toward the emotionally fuelled and often dramatic, dubstep and bass driven 140-centric styles offer a natural focal point, but in no way a limit, for her musical exports.
