DJ TIGRESS (Victoria) facebook.com/djtigresssoundcloud.com/djtigress
TigRess got her first taste of playing live when she stepped up to play a New Year's party in Kelowna in 2013. Playing alongside 5 accomplished DJ's, she quickly showed her natural prowess with her flavourful taste in music selection. As the dance floor filled up it was clear this tiger had earned her stripes. She was hungry for more and sunk in her teeth, securing a regular club night in Kelowna before moving to Victoria in 2014. Since that time, she’s been refining her craft while playing shows in Vancouver and Victoria. She also held a resident DJ slot on Funky Beatz Radio in the UK for 3 months. A fierce music lover, she brings contagious energy and joy with her when she’s lighting up a dance floor. TigRess is always on the hunt for that new sound and brings you the best of house, bass, jackin, funk, ghetto funk, hip hop and dance.
SPILLY WILLY (Victoria)
He's on a life-long musical odyssey, and all he wants to do is bring you along. A lifetime of festivals and shows has given Spilly Willy a deep passion for dancing and music curation. Usually found tearing up dance floors, it was a bush-rave in 2006 where he decided playing dance music was his true calling - since then he’s been DJing any chance he can get. From disco to house, glitch to psy, downtempo, funk, and even pop... if it’s got flow, melody, and bass: he’s on it.
