One of Left Coast’s best-kept secrets, Deano is a dj/producer that has been playing shows for the past ten years. He plays eclectic sets that get the party BOUNCIN. He also happens to be
a master carver. We are stoked to have him in Vancity.

DJ Mazeguider (aka Jeet K)

When not speaking to the Senate and helping to put a stop to absurd legislation, Jeet K can be found behind the decks rockin the electro, techno and glitch hop. Jeet K has been involved in Vancity’s underground music scene as both producer and MC since the 90s and a dj for the past six years.

opening set by Patricia

Patricia played out years before, under the moniker Kriyatrix. For this set, expect something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

“The Tiger is one of the most beautiful creatures on the planet, and is feared and revered in equal measure. It features in many Asian cultures as a manifestation of courage, power, passion and royalty. The Tiger symbolizes the female Yin energy as opposed to the Yang male energy of the dragon. Ancient Chinese believe that the markings on the forehead of tigers resemble the Chinese character for “Wang”, or King. In Imperial China, where the dragon is the insignia of the emperors, the tiger is the military emblem of the highest supreme commanders of the army symbolizing fearlessness and victory. The Tiger also represents earth, while the dragon represents Heaven. The powerful and stealth prowess of the Tiger inspire the martial art movements of many Kung-Fu masters.”

Those who are skilled in combat
do not become angered.

Those who are skilled at winning
do not become afraid.

Thus, the wise win before they fight
while the ignorant fight to win.

Sun Tzu, “The Art of War
