Beats From The Streets originally started in 2007 as a monthly podcast for Vinylslut.ca, a Calgary based website showcasing a variety of electronic music. The show ran for 40 episodes and was well received locally and internationally. BFTS supported the Calgary scene by featuring a multitude of local DJs.
Beats From The Streets then evolved from a podcast into a series of parties at various Calgary nightclubs. The BFTS DJs have also had the pleasure of opening up for such international DJs as Horse Meat Disco, Eddie C, Lady Miss Kier, Fred Everything, Colette, Halo, Kruse & Nuremburg, Ben Watt, Jazzy Eyewear, Bryan Jones, Hipp-e and many more.
BFTS is firmly rooted in house music but branches out into other genres such as broken beats and disco. The focus of BFTS has always been a dedicated passion for quality underground electronic music. Catch BFTS live on DE RADIO (Vancouver) on the first Thursday of each month from 6:30-8:30PM mountain time. Thanks for listening.
