// SOUND //

TOBIAS.DJ 
(Whistler/Montreal)
Hailing from the West Coast technoculture, tobias has DJ'ed warehouse raves
to logging road occupations, art galleries to festivals, from Montreal to
Amsterdam, Barcelona to Berlin. From dubhouse to deep techno, electro to
minimal, tobias plays with a unique sonic signature crafted from over 15
years of DJing hedonist gatherings worldwide. Now in Whistler, tobias has
introduced a minimalist sound to Diversity Festival, WinterPRIDE and Bass
Coast Project. His DJ mixes can be found at [http://controltochaos.ca] &

DJ REVISE 
(Vancouver / re:create records)
A collage artist and sculptor in a former life, electronic music artist
Revise melds and shapes different genres and sound sources into his own art
form. Imagine if Amon Tobin and Prefuse 73 got together to remix Boards of
Canada, with DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist looking on as producers. Palettes to
Burn, his debut album, showcases the variety of colours and concepts of this
meticulous producer and DJ. Revise returns once again to W2 Perel Gallery
for the second Hot Type action in a row. http://www.myspace.com/djrevise
