High Tech Soul: The documentary is told primarily via anecdotal, often humorous interviews with dozens of artists new and old -- including Richie Hawtin, Eddie Fowlkes, the Electrifying Mojo, Kenny Larkin, Jeff Mills, Stacey Pullen, and of course, the much-celebrated Belleville Three (Atkins, May and Saunderson) -- as well as promoters and proponents who helped techno cement its visibility
Circa : As a testament to the unique collaborative nature of Circa, Kidrobot creator Paul Budnitz has designed an exclusive Kidrobot Room on the third floor of the space. A world’s first, the bar and lounge area will feature the colourful world of Kidrobot, including signature creations such as Dunny and Munny, and Frank Kozik’s Smorkin’ Labbit character.
Location: 126 John Street, Toronto, ON -
New York Magazine article.
The space formerly known as Lucid (126 John) certainly has its history. It’s a huge space that’s hard to fill. Thankfully, New York nightclub legend Peter Gatien - best known for running the notorious Limelight and The Tunnel in the ‘90s, which served as the backdrop for the film Party Monster starring Macaulay Culkin as killer club kid Michael Alig, Seth Green as James St. James and Dylan McDermott as Gatien. A Canadian citizen, Gatien was deported from America two years ago, after countless police raids on his clubs and charges of evading $1.3 million in taxes. Gatien served 45 days in prison before his deportation to Canada. Gatien has stepped in to pump some life into the 53,000 sq. ft. space. With a tentative opening in late May, “Circa” will feature a live music and DJ space, mixing with art, film, fashion and interactive high-tech design. Still, Gatien will have his hands full (as did Lucid owners), but is soldiering ahead full-force, re-tooling some of his niche effects – a washroom bar, interactive performance art, superstar DJ acts – to lure the masses back.
