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.

Deaf Echoes

Shield; (20/20 LDN)
Copenhagen’s Shield has become a key artist in the beats scene, fusing his long history as a bass music producer, with a background as a classical percussionist. His signature sound always puts a lot of emphasis on drums and textures & often recorded by himself in his studio. While completing his Masters Degree in percussion at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, his track Horrormovie caught the attention of Ivy Lab, who after supporting it on their Rinse FM Critical Sound show, subsequently signed him to their 20/20 LDN imprint. The My Flava EP, his debut release with the label, received massive support by scene leaders such as Ivy Lab, Noisia, Alix Perez, Sub Focus, DJ Craze and Tipper.

Jon1st (Fly High Society UK)
Through his ahead of the curve track selection and technical ability, Jon1st has quickly built a reputation as a DJ’s DJ. His club sets see him effortlessly blend together influences from across the alternative electronic music spectrum, incorporating breath taking technical skills developed through his background as a World-DMC-title-winning turntablist while keeping the dance floor moving. Alongside a busy touring schedule, which has seen him recently perform across Europe, North America and Asia, Jons sets have recently caught the attention of drum and bass/half time beats supergroup Ivy Lab, who have swiftly made him a resident at their 20/20LDN club nights in London and around Europe where he has had played alongside many of the scene’s leading producers. He also holds down a monthly podcast with Liverpool based label Fly High Society and his studio mixes have been featured on established platforms such as Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel, Boiler Room, Rinse FM, Kutmah’s Sketchbook Radio, Serato’s Seratocast, Noisey, Hyponik, DJ Mag, NTS, DJsounds, Radar Radio and Foreign Beggars’ Par Excellence Radio Show. In addition, his turntablist skills have recently seen him collaborate on productions and live routines with fellow 20/20 artist Shield – a project that will develop into a live show in 2019. Jon has also previously been invited to perform official scratch refixes of Ivy Lab, Alix Perez, Om Unit, Halogenix, Moresounds, Kabuki, NameBrandSound, DJ Vadim and Sam Binga. He was also recently hand picked by Beardyman to perform in his Dream Team project, where Jon performs alongside a group of world-class musicians, improvising a new full unplanned album at every performance. He has also recently provided scratches for releases by JD Reid, Mosca (NotSoMuch), Silent Dust & Kaelin Ellis (None60) and Savvy. As a producer, he has recently released collaborative projects with Shield, EAN, Tehbis, Benny Roach and GOALS (alongside Will LV and EAN) – receiving DJ and radio support from household names like Om Unit, Gilles Peterson, Ivy Lab, Fracture, Tim Parker, Reso, Jonny Dub, Kromestar, Kabuki, BBC 6 Music, Rinse FM and NTS.
