G JONES & BLEEP BLOOPTURN UP FOR TOYS PRESENTED BY UBK
In just the last year, 21-year-old Santa Cruz producer G Jones has captivated young audiences across North America with his playful and expansive take on broken beat dance music. His live show weaves an ever expanding catalog of heavy knocking hip hop beats, cross-genre experiments, and expansive melodic riffs in a way that illuminates and drives the dance floor. With his irreverent attitude toward unimaginative EDM, this young producer pushes the envelope and blurs the lines between musical styles while maintaining a meticulous balance of minimal space and heavy bass. His latest release Eyes (available on Robox Neotech) is an audacious energy enhancer comprised of premium West Coast bass music, a swift collection of cross-genre experiments and dubbed-out sub bass monsters designed for the dance floor. This playful EP illustrates the artist's signature reverb style with bulbous basslines, pulverized vocals and unexpected adulterations of spaced-out sounds.
G Jones has recently garnered attention from several highly acclaimed producers, with his beats appearing in mixes by Pretty Lights, Zeds Dead and DJ Shadow on BBC's "Diplo and Friends" program. Touring heavily in Europe and hitting U.S. festivals from Coachella to Symbiosis Gathering this Summer, G Jones generates music dosed with an undeniable sense of freedom and fun.
With diverse roots in everything from hip-hop to orchestral music, he is always pushing the envelope with his productions. His style spans from off the wall 808 blaps, purple, maxamilism, juke, grime and crosses boundaries into what some would consider as mutated club music.With support from artists such as DJ Shadow, Freq Nasty, Starkey, Kode9, Boyz Noize, Doshy, Stagga, DNAE Beats/Patrick Sexx, chrissy murderbot, G Jones, Akkachar, Mat the Alien, and many many more. Bleep Bloop's music has is being played out on most of our continents except for antarctica (maybe) and continues to spread across the globe and out into the black holes and stardust.Bass dipped in liquid question marks and rolled in lazers. Swans Reflecting Elephants. This is the noise your face makes when it drips off.

10 at 10A HIP HOP SHOWCASE OF BEATS AND RHYMES
At its root, 10 at 10 is a monthly hip-hop music showcase where 10 artists perform 10 minute sets starting at 10 PM. However, in the 3 years since its inception it has become the leading platform for building the hip-hop community in Calgary through Events, Promotion and Philanthropy. Their motto is #letsBuild, and that's exactly what they aim to do.
HIP-HOP KARAOKEHOSTED BY GSD, RUBIX & ILL MOVEMENTS
We're going to be doing it up big once a month with hosts RUBIX, GSD and ILL MOVEMENTS.
The format for HHK is straightforward, and designed to create a positive environment for guests and performers alike. Starting at 10 pm, we run 'sets' of 4-5 people every 15-20 minutes with the DJ spinning in between to keep things poppin off. We want this to be an inclusive and un-intimidating event, that embraces more than the usual freestyle backpacker open mic type cats. We hope to get lots of these proper emcees out, but more importantly draw all the closet hip hop heads out to share that track they kill in the shower every morning. So rally your crew, get your shit together and come to a unique and super bumpin party.
Email HHK@commonwealthbar.ca for more info or to sign up.
