THREAT FROM OUTER SPACE - Inspired from an X-Files episode in which Scully tells Mulder about a Reagan speech; “The only thing that can unite mankind is a threat from outer space,” this hard working multi-ethnic (Chinese and Muslim) band from Richmond, B.C. create music for critical thinkers & fans of live music. Influenced by Hip Hop, Dub, Funk, Jazz, House and Drum’n’Bass, the band's unique & original hip hop style is best described as "Bomb Beat", which is beats characterized by quick funk breaks and tight changes and funky jazz-infused beats. TFOS deliver live music mixed with deadly freestyles and written rhymes that wage a balance between political commentary and comic book fury.

GREENTaRA brings a fresh brand of soul-funk-jazz-reggae fusion to the world stage. Laced with kickin' vocals, bangin' bass, and consciously delicious lyrics, their new CD "GLOBAL BABY" is a collection of full-bodied songs, incorporating horns, keys, strings, scratching and an unending array of rhythmic elements that leave no groove unturned. Reminiscent of '70s soul but lavishly updated with a stylistically modern hip hop and R&B feel, their music can't help but have a wide appeal. GreenTaRA combines vocal charm and tight musicianship with solid songwriting and powerful messages for a guaranteed good time.

OR-GAN'IK - Get ready for the Organik Revolution, four brothers from Vancouver, BC who create mind blowing clever & pure soulful music. Blending hip-hop & R&B sounds and styles with pop-rock songwriting sensibilities, Organik have taken the music of classic acts like Sly Stone, Dr. Dre, Jimi Hendrix and Run DMC, tossed it into a blender, and created a sexy stylish fresh sound. Their high-energy live performances continually wow audiences and have them on their feet, with their bodies grooving with primal urgency and infectious party vibes. Organik will blow you away. The Organik Revolution has arrived!
