The GNARCOTICS, composed of DJs Remy Stanbury and Will Snyders, have steadly climbed in popularity since they created the duo in 2008. Favoring Break beats, DnB, Glitch Hop, dub step, and the best in funky party beats, the Gnarcotics have created an image that is recognizable locally and across Canada. As fans know, the Gnarcotics continually rock a bumpin party, play amazing tunes, and shred some serious GNAR.



2:30-4:00am DEEPS

Outcast for his unintentional destruction of Atlantis 11,000 years ago Deeps has resurfaced from hiding to share his story sonically with the world.

Thousands of years in solitary training have enabled him to drop watery basslines and bottomless breaks safely raising any party to its threshold. A known expert in Dirty Speckledbelly Bass and Grimey Tailfin Bass he always produces fresh plates filled with filthy whomp filets.

Publicly promising that the tsunami force which was so destructive in the past is now under control, Deeps also guarantees a crunktastick voyage through the depths of slippery synth waves and salty cyberfunk for all who set sail with him.

Get your nets out for an abyss of dopeness when sailing the musical seas with Deeps.
