Tonight, Puerto Rico-born Robbie Rivera (aka the “Juicy Man”) comes to This is London to spin his juicy beats with Manzone & Strong. Otherwise we think Toronto will probably be resting up for the next evening.
This Saturday is filled with genuinely difficult choices for the breakbeat-inclined weekend warrior. One on hand, Burning Man favourite FreQ Nasty’s Toronto stop at Footwork for Activate Promotions’ Think:IN:Breakbeat is going to be the dirtiest, nastiest breakbeats this town has seen since Bassnectar came in November. Another playa DJ and Toronto local, The Phat Conductor, will also be kicking out his characteristically funky beats. $20, 19+.
On the other hand, Kings of the Jungle II at the Docks will feature some of the biggest UK jungle headliners we’ve seen in a long time: Brockie, Benny Page, Serial Killaz, MC Navigator and Demolition Man will help us rinse it out proper, kept in check of course by the Docks’ new island-based sound monitor. Perhaps even more exciting is the return of San Francisco’s No Left Turn in the Nocturnal Commissions room, bringing his unique style of west coast hardcore to this decidedly north coast massive. $30 advance, all ages.
