In the last 4 months, Studio710 and Kumo Promotions have paired up for a weekly livestream series called Friday Function. Friday Function is a platform for the Vancouver EDM music scene and DJ community. They have decided to create opportunities to those who have worked in the industry and have lost many opportunities.
Last week they paired up with Zillalive to bring a night filled with house music all night long. Zillalive brought some major Vancouver talent into the studio including Joopbox, Murpo, Wave Report, Myringa, Jontin and a special live performance from Vibez Dancers.
Joopbox started off the night with some real funky tunes. His set consisted of house music that had a modern touch to the 80’s inspired synth wave house. Definitely a set worth listening to get your head bopping no matter what you’re doing.
Murpo returns to the studio for her second round on Friday Function. Her high energy sets include a mix of the top tech house, bass house and house remixes. In an interview after he set she mentioned that some of her favourite DJs are Fisher and James Hype. Stylistically you can hear these influences throughout her set which brought the energy to the stream.
Inspired by her love affair with countless styles in electronic music, Wave Report demonstrates her ability to flow between the genres of edm, tech & deep house, techno, underground and future bass. Her goal of crafting a unique journey that elegantly plays with different ranges of tempo, energy and emotional highs and lows can be witnessed in her set.
The most unique out of all the sets, Myringa brings a blend of all sorts of music throughout and acid house driven set. Most notably though was his costume which matched the mysterious energy of his set. At the end he brings in some left-field wonky bass music.
A DJ born on the dance floor and grown from a love of our music and culture. Jontin’s dynamic east coast attitude and energy shines behind the decks and in his track selection. Definitely one of the highest energy sets that has come through for Friday Function.
And that’s a wrap for our Friday Function recap for the week. Stay tuned for this week’s edition of Friday Function. Make sure to let us know in the comments below who you would want to see on a Friday Function.
