Event description


The first Home Town Getdown was such a rockin' success, we're doing it again! As with all Sublime events, we're keeping it funky and classy with good vibes all around. We're super stoked to welcome DJs Primitive and John Glassey to the lineup. These superstar locals are both true veterans and will no doubt bring their distinct, polished style to the decks. Also featuring resident Sublime DJs Dodd and Rowan who never fail to rock the dance floor from start to finish.

We're keepin' it real and throwin' it back. No frills, no fuss...this one is all about the music, the dance and the oh so sweet vibes.
Doors at 7pm. Music ends at 1am.

Party People Sound Solutions

Music is a force of convergence, of balance and acceptance. Tensions are alleviated by the pulsing mob on a dancefloor. This has led Primitive to hone his own craft while mentoring up and coming DJ’s, running a DJ school and coaching local talent- pushing a culture of musicality and celebration.

Primitive is a man who likes to sleep late. Pushing DJ, festival and rave culture in the sea to sky (Victoria- Vancouver- Squamish- Whistler) has always been his focus, but now it is clearly a career and life path. Music gets him out of bed, keeps him up late, feeds his family, his soul.

Connecting years ago with heavyweight DJ and PK Victoria owner, DJ ANGER, the two now run Party People Sound Solutions- providing opportunity for DJ’s to get payed to play, promoting the culture and the craft. The partnership has opened the door for the pair to manage The Valley Stage at Tall Tree Music Festival- booking, programming and managing 4 days of music for what has become one of Vancouver Island’s favourite festivals.

Primitive's soundsystem sets feature Techno, House, Bass and Acid sounds, but he'll always throw curveballs to keep the set interesting and a dance floor locked.

“There is nothing primitive about my sound or technique, it is about what happens when we gather and dance- When we hear the call of our soul, we look towards the ancient, the primitive”.



Sublime Events

Co-producer of Sublime Events, Rowan has been evolving his dancefloor expression over the last couple years. He is currently grooving to high vibed, heart lifting, soul filled dance music. HIs DJ sets explore deep house, techno and many sub-genres in between. Always tied together with some organic instruments, vocals laced with soul and sophistication, Rowan's mixing and programming create engaging and ecstatic performances whenever he plays.



Returning Saturn

The existence of Dodd has long been questioned by those who've not been on his dancefloor -- but those who've been there are fast and thorough believers. From his humble beginnings as a dancefloor observer Dodd carefully catalogued the sounds and reactions of the people in order to pinpoint the perfect palette of progressive sounds: blending trancey, glitchy, dubby and techy tidbits into memorable dancefloor journeys that transcend sonic expectations. With these dancefloor commandments Dodd has been rocking crowds consistently in Victoria, as well as becoming a mainstay of the Entheos Conference and Festival. Whether you're a believer or not, with the speakers as his chorus, you will be moved by the voice of Dodd...
