Soldiers of the Underground and Area709 Present
ALLIANCE
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada


Alliance is the official welcome of area709 of Calgary to the Vancouver scene; with the organization being a beautiful reflection of Vancity’s Soldiers of the Underground. On this night, join us for a journey through uncompromising and unforgettable progressive music.


ABOUT SOLDIERS OF THE UNDERGROUND
Concieved by Phoenix Olivia originally as an events organization in Vancouver, Soldiers of the Underground soon represented all the individuals in the underground dance culture that had a true love for the scene and supported it, and now has evolved into a record label, Soldiers of the Underground Records. Last year, under the label, Phoenix Olivia released compilation "Passion" which featured West Coast producers like Noah Pred, Jacob Cino, Osiris Indriya and Damon Shea. For more information about the Soldiers of the Underground, please visit www.soldiermusic.ca.


ABOUT AREA709
Vaguely originating in 2001 from an apartment complex in downtown Calgary, Area709 was truly born from a collaboration between Wes Straub, Darvin Knorr and Jay Michael, along with a small, experimental website that allowed djs to post mixes and dj news, to push their talents out further. Fast forward to 2007 and Area709 has become a major organization in North America with a talented and growing roster of djs and producers from Canada down to Mexico. In the past three years, the group has thrown various events large and small in Calgary and is now pursuing opportunities in cities like Vancouver. The Area709 website--the core of Area709's existence--will be launching it's second version on April 15th, 2007 and is positioned to be one of premier electronica sites in the world; accompanied by an online radio station that is now broadcasting globally. To experience all that is Area709, please visit www.area709.com and subscribe to be a part of this rapidly growing community.


DJS





Phoenix Olivia
(Soldiers of the Underground, Area709)
Progressive House
PhoenixOlivia.com ))) | www.area709.com


Besides being the mastermind behind Soldiers of the Underground, Phoenix has played countless shows and every major nightclub in Vancouver. She has played in Central, Eastern and Western Canada, and some of the West Coast United States. Dubbed the Progressive Queen of Vancouver, Phoenix has made a noticable mark in the dance movement of the North American West Coast. Apart from being a skillful dj, Phoenix is one of the hardest working event promoters in Vancouver. Under her production company Soldiers of the Underground, Phoenix has showcased artists such as San Fransisco's Bluetech, Adham Shaikh, Noah Pred, Kevin Shiu, Cary Chang, and Seattle's Osiris Indriya. In January 2005 Phoenix officially launched her own record label Soldiers of the Underground Records and released its first compilation PASSION, featuring tracks from West Coast artists/producers such as Jacob Cino, Noah Pred and Damon Shea. With her extraordinary stage presence and cutting edge track selection she electrifies the dancefloor without fail. Her style is often compared to Sasha and James Holden with it's dark, hypnotic flow of deep dark chugging progressive and progressive breaks. Phoenix Olivia is currently in her studio working on her debut album. Her vision for this year is to produce more and expose her music to Europe and Asia, while continuing to throw events that showcase the best of the Progressive Movement.





Wes Straub
(Area709, Pure.Prog | Red Light Sessions)
Deep Trance
Area709


Wes has developed into one of Alberta's brightest up and coming progressive djs. Besides playing various events in Calgary and holding down his extremely successful monthly Pure.Prog residency at the Amsterdam Rhino (in Calgary), he has also fostered an international following through online radio and with subsequent bookings in Ibiza, Mexico and at Shambhala in 2006. Wes's sound has grown from early trance influences into a rich and diverse blend of deep progressive trance; often difficult to categorize and unique in the way it's mixed. Wes is also the original founder of Area709, a collective of ambitious djs, producers and artists from around North America, using the web to push themselves further. This group has rapidly become a household name synonymous with high quality progressive music.





Jay Michael
(Area709/Entheogenetic/Tribal Harmonix)
Progressive Psytrance
Area709 | www.entheogenetic.com | www.tribalharmonix.org


Area709's Jay Michael has fast become one of BC's most booked and sought after progressive psychedelic djs, as methodical track selection and ecstatic stage presence have made him a crowd favorite weekend after weekend in the West Coast underground tribal dance scene. As a label dj for Entheogenetic Records he has bookings at music festivals all
over western Canada and the United States including a pime time slot
saturday night on the Portal stage at this years Shambhala music festival.





Darvin Knorr aka Nokturnal
(Area709/Zenon Records)
Progressive Psytrance
Area709 | www.zenonrecords.com


One half of the accomplished duo Sons of Aurora and a label DJ for Zenon Records and a partner in the Area709 machine, Darvin has rocked many major events in Canada and the Western US including Shambhala, Burningman, Seattle's Oracle Gathering and a yearly appearance at Alberta's Motion Notion, where as a part of the Sons of Aurora was voted the most popular act to see. His mixes can also be heard online on many radio stations worldwide. Darvin's sound is very diverse with the ability to cover all genres from breaks and downtempo to progressive and psytrance and within any venue, intelligent, haunting and driving beats are his trademark. Recently Darvin under his psytrance moniker Nokturnal, was signed on as a label DJ for Zenon Records, an Australian psytrance label.





Rusty Ezard
(Area709)
Melodic Psytrance
Area709


A true veteran, Rusty started dj’ing in Toronto over 10 years ago playing psytrance, holding down the very successful bi-weekly residency aptly titled Audio Enforcement for over two years. Moving to Alberta in 2002, Rusty quickly found a home with Area709 and has since played many events in and around Calgary as well as the Motion Notion festival for three years running. With a likeness towards the Nano records psytrance label, Rusty's brand of psytrance is nothing short of intense and pounding accented with melodic elements.





Khan
(Beheshto)
Tribal Progressive
B E H E S H E T O - M A I N


Using his love of music to inspire and feed the flames of consciousness in the dance community, Khan is on a constant journey of growth and discovery, doing his small part to help as many souls as possible on their journey to higher realms. Inspired by progressive music pioneers John Digweed and James Holden, he has been exploring a range of musical flavors over the past 7 years, ranging from progressive house to hard trance. His sets take dancers on a journey through mythic landscapes, richly textured with deep, dark grooves, tribal rhythms, and lush, beautiful progressive tracks. Hailing from the beautiful city of Vancouver on Canada's West Coast, a veteran of the outdoor festival and rave scene, Khan's infectious spirit is sure to give rise to some serious magic on the dance floor and beyond.

An invasion it will be!! This night's going to be pretty wicked. A great variety of progressive house/trance and progressive psytrance.

As far as us Calgary guys go (since a lot of you probably haven't heard of us), look for Darvin to bring some dark ripping prog psy, Rusty to get a little more pounding and melodic, then myself switching things up and finishing it off with some beautiful deep trance.

You already know the Van crew is going to bring it!

Looking forward to next weekend!

We are really looking forward to coming out West next weekend, and I know Jay Michael is pretty excited to have his new sound rig at this event. I've pulled out some killer unreleased material from Zenon Records to unleash on everyone, oh yeah.... =)
