|Description:||Forward started in the summer of 2008 as platform to promote underground electronic music, filling the absence of a weekly rendez-vous for the alternative club scene. Originally thought out to be a hosting ground for drum’n’bass, jungle, breaks and dubstep, Forward grew and evolved into a night made to showcase a wide array of genres and scenes working with a variety of different crews and artists such as Loetech, Sixtoo, DZ, Datsik, Spor and Plastician, to name a few. |
Dubstep remains a central focus but Forward is also about bringing people of different musical backgrounds together to open their minds to different styles. By inviting over 75 different guest djs on the span of the last year, Forward gets people to enjoy and discover new artists.
Rhys Taylor, a nightlife legend who has been playing alongside big names of the international electronic music scene in Montreal for almost 10 years now. Holding down "Your Radio is Broken" on CKUT for the past 5 years, throwing Mix Thursdays for almost 3 years, a residency at Blue Dog, Saphir and then Blizzarts with Broken Crew and bringing breaks to Stereo are a few of his accomplishments.
David Rawalia aka Wally, a dj who has been mastering his craft since 2003 and more recently producing his own unique sounds. After promoting rave culture and sound and organizing a multitude of one-off all-nighters, he moved on to the dubstep scene taking full-part in the forward weekly as well as participating in other events such as soma and bassdrive.
Come celebrate Forward's call to one united universal nation of bass! VIVE LA BASS LIBRE!

Founder of collective Level 4 Productions in 2001, this amorphous being has contributed to Montreal's electronic music subculture since 1993 as DJ, music critic, producer, promoter and label manager. His love for the chugging repetitive nature of techno, acid house and hardcore genres remains informed by an early appreciation for hip-hop, stoner rock, jazz and psychedelia of all sorts. Equally at home behind two or three decks Sarcastic’s diversity as a DJ has allowed him to perform alongside many of his musical mentors: NYC’s Frankie Bones, Detroit ghetto-tech don DJ Assault, Stockholm’s Thomas Krome and Slobodan, London breakbeat stars Freestylers or Deekline, or minimal techno luminaries Deadbeat or Algorithm. Meanwhile Sarcastic’s productions have ranged from minimal to maximal, exploring the outer edges of the electronic music world with the gut-wrenching rave tale Keep Poppin Pills, the emotive Sunshine Blues EP for Pertin-nce, or dark, semi-listenable tracks like Heroin is a Bad Trip. Sarcastic continues to go against the grain, throwing a split fingered fastball at the institutions of authority, knowledge and convention in the ongoing quest for communal and individual expression through sound and music.
Kimazea (LIVE PA)

Described by Steve Lalla as "The Shakelton of Montreal", Kimazea's sound revolves around deep sub bass frequencies and tribal-esque rythms. Performing for the very first time at passeport, his live PA set promises to bring some refreshing sounds to the bassbins.

Another first time performance at forward for Moebius and it really is unbeleivable that we have waited so long to have him on the bill. Well known for his baging hardtek dj sets and live PAs with the NTK crew, this time, he will be bringing out his electro/breaks productions to the decks. Expect banging beats and big bouncy bass.
Hosts Wally and Rhys Taylor will be wearing nothing but strechy blue lycra for the occasion and will play a special selection of dubstep, breaks, dnb and glitch hop
