It may or may not be the end of the world, but Golden Delicious want to make sure you celebrate either way.
On Dec. 21 they will be hosting a Doomsday Party at the Golden Taps with special performances by Vinyl Ritchie and The Gaff.
Known for his hear religious obsession with vinyl-only sets, Scott Arkwell, a.k.a. Vinyl Ritchie, is one of Canada’s original eclectic electronic music DJs.
In the early days of Vancouver’s embryonic early 90s rave scene, he made a name for himself as an inventive mash-up artist, long before the hipsters and ableton/serato remixers started hybridizing electronica.
A consistent party rocker for more than two decades, a Shambhala fractal forest favourite, beach stage staple, and globally sought out DJ, Vinyl Ritchie is a guaranteed good time.
The Gaff, a fellow party rocker, infuses original break beats, funk, soul, afro, Latin, Brazilian, and other world flavours with modern day club, hip hop, electronic, and dance music.
The Gaff is often referred to as a DJ’s DJ, cited as a persona favourite amongst some of the world’s best DJs.
Born in Washington D.C. in 1977, Gaff was raised in Victoria and honed his skills throughout the late 90s. In 2010 his production rose to new heights, his tunes being played by world class DJs and shows around the globe, and featured on numerous mixtapes.
It was also the year he was recognized at Saskatoon’s best DJ.
He’s also had the pleasure of promoting and opening up for DJ Nu-Mark, Z-Trip, Fort Knox Five, Questlove, Scratch, and of course Vinyl Ritchie.
Doors open for the Doomsday Party at 9 p.m., tickets at the door only.
