Stickybuds, a break-beat, reggae funk DJ and producer from Kelowna, B.C. will be in Charlottetown on Sept. 30th at Hunter’s Ale House.
Fresh off a tour around Europe performing in the UK, Italy, Bosnia, Germany and Israel, Stickybuds said he is excited for his East Coast tour.
“I’ve been to Halifax three or four times, Sydney and St. John’s. Those are the only east coast spots, but it will be nice to get to P.E.I.”
Dan Gallant said he was thrilled when he heard Stickybuds was coming to Hunter’s Ale House.
“I was pretty amazed to see someone with that kind of talent and national recognition coming to the island as the scene is so small here.”
This will give the electronic scene on P.E.I. more strength, said Gallant.
“We can all expect a great set from him. He’s a talented producer and DJ and he knows how to work a crowd.”
Dexter Shea, aka Dekz, and Landon Harris, aka Lando, saw this as a perfect opportunity to help bring attention to the island’s electronic scene.
Shea and Harris have put in lots of work to bring acts to the Maritimes for people interested in the electro movement, which includes Future Funk and the High Tide Music Festival in West Point, P.E.I.
Shea has just released his first original track, Right Here, an upbeat G-house track designed to get the dance floor jamming.
Stickybuds’ work mixing and producing music has landed him a resident position at Shambhala Music Festival in Salmo, B.C., since 2005.
He will perform live in Charlottetown along with locals Dekz and Foggyswoggle at Hunter’s Ale House this Wednesday, starting at 11p.m. Advance tickets are $10 each. They will be more at the door.
