Gearing Up for Mat The Alien, Smalltown DJs and Outsider

On Thursday May 26th let’s get together for a little boogie down at Distrikt Nightclub with headliners Smalltown DJs and Mat the Alien with opener, local Victoria artist Outsider. This awesome party is bound to get you in the festival mood. Grab your festy family for a little pre-reunion partying, and don’t forget to stay open to new connections! With free entry before midnight, how can you go wrong? Make sure to RSVP though with our friends over at Do250 for your guest list spot before 12pm.

Smalltown DJs have been a long time favourite of mine for over 6 years and I try not to ever miss one of their Victoria shows. Have you heard their best of 2013 mix? Hands down one of my favourite sets of all time! These guys really know how to put a tight mash-up together, playing everything from house, to hip hop with a healthy dose of top 40 remixes, these guys really know how to play to the crowd.

Mat the Alien has also become a legend in Victoria; he always brings the bass, and for those of us who like to feel the music pulsate through our bodies, this guy doesn’t disappoint. Not only is he a master of the ones-and-twos, Mat’s talent transcends into the studio where he produces drum and bass and dubstep tracks, which you can find on his soundcloud page. Mat is pumped to play at this year’s Tall Tree, and has recently moved from Squamish to Vancouver Island and shares that he is “stoked to be doing a festival here!” And is especially excited for “the big sound systems, mapped visuals and vibe from the crowd…and being outside makes for an amazing weekend.” Planning on coming to both Distrikt Nightclub and Tall Tree? Don’t worry, “I always like to switch things up,” says Mat, “I don’t do the same set so both will be different. I’m also super stoked to play with my friends Smalltown at Distrikt!” Make sure to catch Mat’s set on Canada day, Friday July 1st at Tall Tree (stage and time to be announced). Check out Mat’s Mixcloud and his label Really Good Recordings for his latest tunes.
