Nelson DJ/turntablist Bryx returns to Vernon’s 2929 Nite Club for 13th Floor Entertainment’s second annual Thanksgivin’er party

Pass the beats for Thanksgivin’er

13th Floor presents Nelson DJ Bryx at Vernon's 2929 Nite Club for second annual Thanksgivin’er party Saturday, Oct. 12.

Deep in the West Kootenays comes one of the most skilled turntablists and party rocking DJs in the province.

Nelson’s Bryx is emerging out of the Fractal Forest of Salmo’s Shambhala Music Festival to celebrate Thanksgivin’er at Vernon’s 2929 Nite Club Saturday.

The show is part of 13th Floor Entertainment’s second annual Thanksgiving weekend party.

Bryx has been refining his craft since he first hit the decks at the age of 12.

“He has developed a style of high-energy, bass-heavy party music that consistently fills dance floors, no matter what the occasion,” said Josh Brazier, with 13th Floor. “His influences come from all styles of music — rock, hip hop, jazz — and his mind blowing scratch routines transform any genre into a party rockin’ good time.”

Determined to redefine the art of the mash-up, Bryx has become known for his strong production style, delivering a fresh mix of hip hop, breaks and bass-heavy party tunes.

Along with taking first place in the 403 Red Bull 3Style series, Bryx has played Canada’s largest electronic dance music festival, Shambhala, for the last 10 years.

Warming up the decks for Bryx will be Kelowna’s Arise, who plays a mix of jackin, house, electro, fidget, bassline, breaks, drum ‘n bass, hip hop, rock, punk and so on.

“He is one of the most underrated DJs on the scene and is notorious for leaving fans wanting more,” said Brazier.

Also opening is Vernon’s own Molokaii, aka Solomon “Solo” Kaleikini, who is no stranger to the world of bass, having played electric bass guitar for many years in a number of bands.

He also built custom bass guitars under the name kemaguitars.

“He has a huge local following and a tendency to pack the dance floor early in the evening, something that is not usually easy to do,” said Brazier.

Molokaii’s  love for the low end eventually brought him to the electronic music scene, where he has incorporated his ever evolving production techniques to create his signature sound.

He often rounds out his sets with edits and remixes and is drawn to the multi-layered musical styles of The Mars Volta, Tool and The Crystal Method.

Motivated by the Okanagan’s thriving music scene, Molokaii is a resident DJ at Kelowna’s Arcade and has played numerous times with Sentient Sound (Base Wave) at The Grateful Fed, also in Kelowna.

Tickets for Saturday’s second annual Thanksgivin’er at 2929 Nite Club are $10 in advance at the Downtown Internet Lounge, Dunas, and Margherita’s Pizza.

“Last year this event sold out, so we encourage people to purchase pre-sale tickets,” said Brazier.
