DONALD GLAUDE (San Diego/Seattle)
Funky Tekno Tribe DGR Eden Recordings
With over 2 decades of dance floor rocking under his belt, The Donald has become a house hold name amongst dance music lovers across the globe. One of DJ Dan‘s original inspirations, Donald so totally annihilated Footwork last year that we couldn‘t not have him back! He’ll again be digging out the classic cuts for a memorable set… and did we mention that it’s also his birthday?

Long before he became famous for his Pirate Radio Sessions, chart topping tracks with BKS and Love Inc, or the over 3 million albums he’s sold across the globe, “The Shep” was at the forefront of the Toronto rave movement. After a very long hiatus, Dogwhistle is back for one night only to take us back with the beats that made the Toronto scene what it is today.

A local favorite and constant presence at just about every rave in Toronto throughout the 90's. John E held residencies at the legendary Pleasure Force and Better Days events, as well as System, Turbo and Pure Wednesdays at Limelight. His funky breaks and house blend has absolutely blown the roof off at our last two boxing day shows.

These days Jelo can be found traveling the globe playing to thousands, or in the studio pumping out chart topping hits. Back then he'd just got his big break playing for Syrous. This boxing day, expect a set of classic funky techno and assorted dance floor stormers from this head banging madman.

In the mid 90’s Tim amassed a following so huge it led to him being THE mainstay resident at the largest raves this city ever witnessed. Now residing in Croatia, the ‘mystery’ man is back in Toronto for his annual old school set that has also now become legendary in itself. Get ready to be schooled Timoslav Patrickski style!

Definitely the rookie among this group of veterans, Robb's energetic and funky sound made it's mark on Toronto while playing for such heavy weights as Syrous, Dose and Metro in the late 90s . He'll be opening up the night with a selection of his favs from the good old days.
