White Rabbit: FLiM (Maetta | Thailand), Rick Laplante, Cole Huyssen
@City At Night
222 Slater St
Tickets · CA$19.44 - CA$

Ottawa's best dance music DJs every Saturday inside City At Night.
Check out our spin on happy hour = #HoppyHour! From 9pm to 10pm, we offer $4 beer & bar rail, and 1/2 price cover on most events!

We're excited to host the White Rabbit debut of one of Thailand's best DJ exports to Canada, playing a rare tech-house set:

FLiM (Maetta | Mainframe Artists)

Hailing from Thailand’s southern region, Flim has for the past twenty-five years been passionately contributing to the global techno scene, bringing his high-energy performances and abstract energetic productions to dance-floors throughout the world.
Trained originally as a rock drummer, Flim became attracted to the tribal sounds of techno early on, and could soon be found deejaying in venues throughout the infamous southern islands of Koh-Samui and Koh-Panghan. His infectious and energetic performances proved addictive, leading to residencies at Thailand’s world-renowned Full Moon, Black Moon, and Half Moon parties!
After relocating to the epicenter of electronic music in Canada – Toronto, he founded Blackmoon Productions, quickly making his name synonymous with Canada’s free tekno scene thanks to his memorable squat parties and deep talent for keeping dance-floors moving. Before long, Flim was gracing premier electronic clubs such as Montreal’s Circus, and Toronto’s Circa, as well as top tier Canadian festivals such as WEMF, and the Eclipse Festival.
In the studio, Flim was also building an international fan base. Quietly perfecting his production technique, he joined the roster of Henry Cullen & Pattrix’s stripped down UK label Mutate to Survive, for the release of his first EP, Killing It. Setting the tone for what has become a signature cross-genre brand of techno, the EP mixed the best sounds of minimal, tribal and hard-groove together into a fresh sound not to be missed whether played in the club or on the home stereo. A year later, Flim continued with the release of the EP, New Planet, again on Mutate to Survive. Quickly gaining traction in the international electronic community, New Planet was featured in France’s renowned music magazine Tsugi, it appeared on French artists The Hacker’s Top 10 Chart, and cracked Beatport’s Top 50 globally. Building on this success, Flim teamed up with Toronto’s Jane Void to produce the unusual sounding minimal floor grinder, Press My Button. Featuring Void’s distorted vocals, the track originally aired on French national radio Oui FM, and has since been hitting dance-floors worldwide.
Behind the decks, Flim has become renowned for bringing the energy, charisma and sound that only a seasoned producer and deejay can. From dark vibes and slamming beats, to rolling climaxes and funky grooves, Flim perfectly blends his original production tracks with other ground breaking techno, making his international performances a must see event that will keep people talking long after the music has stopped.

White Rabbit honcho Rick Laplante is on opening duties for our headliner. Our featured #HoppyHour DJ is also making his White Rabbit Ottawa debut: Cole Huyssen!

Lake Street Drive | Ottawa Jazz Festival
@Confederation Park
Laurier Ave. W

Ottawa Jazz Festival presents: Lake Street Dive
Thursday, June 27 | Main Stage, Confederation Park | 8:30pm

Purchase online:
Since forming in 2004, Lake Street Dive have matched their sophisticated musicianship with a fearless refusal to limit their sound. As shown on their most recent full-length album, 2021‘s critically acclaimed Obviously, the Boston-bred band also possess a keen talent for combining sociopolitical commentary with immediately catchy pop gems. With their current lineup comprised of founding members Rachael Price (vocals), Bridget Kearney (bass), and Michael Calabrese (drums) — as well as keyboardist/vocalist Akie Bermiss and touring guitarist James Cornelison — Lake Street Dive continue to create joyously soulful rock & roll with equal parts ingenuity, intelligence, and irresistible abandon.
Although a certain spirited eclecticism has defined Lake Street Dive since their earliest days, the band‘s four original members (including former guitarist/trumpet player Michael “McDuck” Olson) first crossed paths while studying jazz at Boston‘s New England Conservatory of Music. Their full-length debut In This Episode… arrived in 2007, followed by three more independently released and rapturously received albums. As the band‘s energetic live show continued to earn them a devoted following, Lake Street Dive made their Nonesuch Records debut with Side Pony: a 2016 effort that instantly shot to No. 1 on three Billboard charts and later landed on Paste‘s 50 Best Albums of 2016 list.
The following year, the group experienced a new infusion of creative energy with the addition of Bermiss (previously their touring keyboardist), who has since begun sharing writing and arrangement duties. Arriving in 2018, Lake Street Dive‘s self-produced sixth album Free Yourself Up debuted in the top ten on the Billboard 200 and spent seven-and-a-half months on the non-commercial radio charts, with the smoldering hit single “Good Kisser” holding steady in the top five at Americana radio for over a month.
In recent years, Lake Street Dive have brought even more boldness to their kaleidoscopic sound while deliberately expanding their songcraft. To that end, Obviously finds the band examining such complex matters as gender inequality (on “Being a Woman”) and the monumental challenges faced by younger generations (on “Making Do”), shaping each track with a profound intentionality and ineffable mastery of melody and groove — a process Price refers to as “putting these messages into three and a half minute snippets, dropping whatever truth we can and hoping it‘s the type of thing that people want to ruminate on.” Made with producer Mike Elizondo (Fiona Apple, Mary J. Blige), the result is an endlessly illuminating body of work that‘s earned praise from the likes of Rolling Stone (who noted that “[a]t a moment when pop strives for lo-fi, solitary-world intimacy, the jazz-pop-whatever band refuse to think small”).
Last fall, to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their first covers EP, Lake Street Dive released Fun Machine: The Sequel, a 6-track EP of cover songs produced by Robin MacMillan and recorded at Figure 8 Recording in Brooklyn and Lucy‘s Meat Market in Los Angeles. This new collection of songs reveals what makes the group so unique and their curations so special. Lake Street Dive don‘t just inhabit these interpretations; they knock the walls down, re-finish the floors, and on some of them add a new room or two — it‘s a way to both acknowledge their inspirations while also advancing their own musical foundation, inspiring a new generation of fans along the way. And as always, it‘s their signature combination of immaculate musicianship, exceptional, inventive chops, and free-wheeling, playful sense of fun and originality leading the way.
Over the years, they‘ve captivated massive audiences at such esteemed festivals as Newport Folk Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and Toronto Jazz Festival, in addition to headlining tours all across the globe and sharing stages with acts like Brandi Carlile and Sheryl Crow. And through their fierce commitment to constantly elevating their artistry, Lake Street Dive have ultimately emerged as one of the most compelling voices in alternative music today, both reliably sublime and thrilling unpredictable.

Winnipeg is a major party town, Trevor. I took a contract to bring the crowds back to a club there years back. It was impossible to put dent in all the invitations to events in that town. They just love to party, man!!!! I know you will have a boss time, my friend!!!!!!!! I miss that town!

African Man so dope, will you find another AfroTechno blend so spectacular? Nope. Takes you to tha continent mentally while putting your heels to work physically. Comes from above to lift you up spiritually. Blaze Farmer & Wolf Village serve up a Tony Allen Trifecta
