Event description


~ Resonate ~

In Spring, we return to the foundation of drum & bass. We are honored to welcome back the breakbeat pioneer, Paradox, for a live PA set and mental excavation session. Rolling out the night we have Toronto’s finest, Gremlinz, on set to expand minds & make his Resonate debut along with the man like Kian Asamoah. Exploring the finest of mental gems in the DC drum & bass scene, this month is definitely another session for the heads.

With a prolific career spanning over 20 years, he has consistently gifted the scene with its most treasured cuts and breaks, delivered with sublime musicality. Across both 'Paradox' and 'Alaksa' aliases, he has built a strong core following from DJs and fans alike, with new records deservedly high in demand; regular output, but never faltering in quality. From early releases on Reinforced & Good Looking, to more recently with Metalheadz & Samurai, his own labels have gained increasing prestige, with a superb back catalogue across Paradox Music, Arctic Music (for Alaska) and Esoteric Music (alongside Nucleus). His esteemed 'Paradox - Live' performances ensure for a unique experience, with ultimate freedom to showcase his music in a truly 'live' set, featuring a sampler, synthesizer and a 16-channel analogue mixer. Heading into the end of the year, Paradox maintains the pressure with releases on Arctic and Esoteric in November and plenty more to follow in the coming months.


Toronto's Gremlinz has been carving a path of his own within Drum & Bass for over a decade, staying true to the core elements of the music and never wavering from his sound, regardless of whatever the passing trends around him might have been. His signature sound remains rooted equally in Reinforced/Metalheadz/Bluenote era Jungle as it is in Renegade Hardware’s early 2000s moodiness, bookended by equal parts Dub and Techno and tied together with an ever-present B Boy edge.

Following his debut on Metalheadz MDZ04 LP, Gremlinz has had excursions on many respected labels, and with each release, the accolades have poured in. His style is multi-faceted, allowing him to drop both pulsating, breakbeat-heavy B-Boy affairs to the more understated, minimal, dub-heavy tunes seemingly at will. His production style has been well received on both sides of the pond, and landed him a spot on Loxy & Ink's HORSEMEN collective, aligning him with a superb stable of producers.

Production aside, Gremlinz is also known for his prowess as a DJ with his own unique style. Dubbed “The Story Teller” by Keaton of the Usual Suspects, Gremlinz’ talents behind the decks have taken him all across Europe, North America and as far as Japan where he has graced legendary venues such as The End Club, Cable, Brixton Mass & many more… Gremlinz is also a cohost on Toronto’s longest running Drum & bass radio show, The Prophecy on 89.5FM CIUT radio.
