DJ bios:

Steve Maly:
Born and raised in the Montreal scene, Steve Maly uses hip hop roots to throw down the perfect blend of gangster house and techno.

DJ Tango has been playing for audiences in Vancouver and area, at Burning Man, and in Australia, since 2001. Parties, clubs, festivals, fundraisers…his experience is diverse. Electro house, tech house, breaks, glitch hop, tribal…his styles are varied.

A 16 year veteran of the Canadian west-coast intentional dance scene, Khan’s lush progressive sets are filled with tribal rhythms, beautiful melodies and mystical landscapes.

Performing since 1993, diem’s signature sound is “hardtribaldisco”, a blend of tribal Latin rhythms, hard funk, house beats, breaks, and layered evil disco. He’s coming all the way from Seattle!
