it’s not very often and it wouldn’t be so special if it was, but every once in a while you find yourself appreciating a real beautiful moment in a cities time. where the right people in the right places have come together to make a small bit of magic happen. i feel there’s a nice change happening in vancouver where quality is starting to replace hipster irony. where promoters and djs are finding themselves having to up their game or be left behind to reign over a chongo ridden, crumbling club circuit. with enough quality programming available for people to go and see, it will naturally make the sour lemon peddlers look like the shady hucksters they are. between last month’s incredible DJ Rahaan’s debut and last night’s earth shattering Farley Jackmaster Funk performance, the night is on course to becoming one of the more exciting events to look forward to each month. Farley was the reason I wanted to learn how to dj when I saw him play in chicago 17 years ago, so having the chance to finally bring him here was a real honor. he still inspires and hasn’t lost a thing since. here is a clip of last nights Farley performance singing “I can’t turn around” and chuck roberts “my house” over top mr. fingers “beyond the clouds”. if i didn’t have proof, no one would believe me!
