This month, we’re paying tribute to the Great White North – clubs, festivals, artists, producers, DJs and the stories behind them all make up the pages of DJ Mag NA July, fronted by the bass-heavy duo Zeds Dead from page 21. Their Deadbeats label has been a labor of love, while their genre-fluid remixes, albums and live shows have seen them continue to dominate the bass music landscape across North America. We’ve got an in-depth chat with breakout house star Jayda G (p62), EDM-pop crossover duo Loud Luxury (p32), ‘post-club’ Grammy winners Bob Moses (p49) and dynamic and adventurous DJ and producer Ciel (p44). We’re also championing Canada’s rising stars SkiiTour, Adventure Club and Dabin while Montréal’s Kannibalen is this month’s Vital Label. We also tell the storied history of Vancouver institution Celebrities and give our own reccs for your summer in the North.
Outside the Canadian border, Adam Beyer talks balance in Ibiza, Volvox outlines her safe space mantra, we take a visual look back at EDC Las Vegas and we ask: ‘Is ageism the last acceptable discrimination?’ We’ve also got the latest news, reviews and tech insight, from page 108.
See you next month…
