THE GROOVE IS STILL IN OUR HEARTS…

We are very proud to present a music, fashion and cultural icon in Calgary for the very first time ever, to a an intimate audience of only 200 peop…le.

LADY MISS KIER (DEE-LITE)
exclusive 2hr. dj set

She’s all grown up! She survived a fire, fought to get out of a major
label deal foreseeing the digital download revolution, tours worldwide
and genuinely lifts up any crowd with her soulful pioneering sound
whether singing live on stage or spinning her diverse set.

In the early 90’s she was famous for being the singer, writer, and
producer of the NYC Tech House Funk band Deeelite. After 3 albums and
3 world tours she quit the band in 1996 and broke up a rocky
relationship with her Russian boyfriend, DJ Dmitry.

She stepped out of the spotlight, moved to Europe, and began designing
her future by learning how to engineer, produce, and DJ, all the while
traveling the world as a DJ. After a decade of travel Lady Kier
returned to her home in NYC. She finally decided she couldn’t keep
silent any longer and in 2005 she chose to SING OUT the P-funk cover
of the anti-war song entitled “I Ain’t Bulletproof” at Lady Bunny’s
Wigstock. This lead to an Australian tour opening for James Brown, and
in the past 2 years she has been touring and singing her new material
worldwide, as well as performing Deeelite classics such as “Groove is
in the Heart”, ” I just wanna hear a Goodbeat”, “Applejuice
Kissin”,”What is Love?”.

Her new material has been a smash in Argentina, Moscow, Istanbul,
Sydney and dozens of other places. She still DJs and is just about
ready to launch her – a decade in the making – new material. In her
current productions, she has collaborated with George Clinton,
Shock-G, several P-funk luminaries, among others. Why did
she wait so long? “It’s simple really. I asked to get out of a major
label contract in 1996 because I could see the digital revolution
coming. I watched as fools rush in with DRM, and subscription
policies, tryna lock it down…which is why I wanted to get away from
the major label distribution platform. In the first place. It took me
5 years to get out of the major label-recording contract with my own
masters but it was worth the wait. I am more in control now than
ever”.

FRED EVERYTHING – Om Records/ Lazy Days Recordings

http://www.om-records.com/ artists/50-fred-everything

Canadian DJ/producer Fred Everything is a key player in the world of House Music and with 12 years in the music business and over 100 productions to his credit, he shows no signs of stopping. Born in Hull and raised in Quebec City, Fred got the early bug for electronic music in High School. He formed a few bands while spending his weekends as one of the youngest in local nightclubs. In the early 90s, he started playing live in raves and clubs in Canada. He was then known as “Everything”, because his live sets could range anywhere from techno to house, ambient and even drum and bass. He even got to open up for a then up and coming, Sasha. Tired of carrying his equipment around, mainly a TR909 and a SH101, he started DJ’ing and changed his name to Fred Everything. A move to the big city of Montreal was the next obvious thing, and it wasn’t too long after that Fred found himself releasing records on some of his favorite labels and catching the attention of DJ’s and producers worldwide.

Fred recently relocated from Montreal to San Francisco where he can be found working from the infamous Moulton Studios. His new album, Lost Together is out now on Om records and includes collaborations from Roy Davis Jr, Lisa Shaw, Tortured Soul, Tim Fuller and N’Dea Davenport from The Brand New Heavies. It’s been recorded in Montreal, Vancouver, San Francisco, New York, Hollywood and Tokyo. The first single ‘Here I Am’ featuring Lisa Shaw has found its way to the number 3 on Traxsource’s top downloads and landed as Single of the week on Wasabeat.com. He’s also hard at work on his label Lazy Days who just got to their 10th release.
