|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.
Celebrate Canada day with Canadian djs from coast to coast!

Combining the latest in computerized gadgetry with traditional DJ paraphernalia, not only does Wreck slay the dance, but also get the chin stroking heads to shout in unanimous approval. Also a uniquely talented photographer, Wreck is also holding the title of official Suave photographer as well, using his precision approach to music and applying it into a carefully constructed visual style that is quickly becoming the new definition of audio-visual suaveness.

Construct has been invading subwoofers and bass bins for 3 years now. A co-founder of the phenomenal BreakBeat Elite crew, Construct cut his teeth with all sorts of broken beats. A strong love of Jungle has developed and evolved into a passion and drive for Dubstep and all bass driven beats. As host of Broken Science radio on CKDU, Construct is always looking for new immerging styles of broken beats. Not one to stick only to one genre of music, Construct constantly blurs the lines between Breaks, Dubstep, Electro and Club Bangers for a high energy dance floor set or an aggressive Drum’n’Bass and Jungle throw down.
It has been almost two years since we have had the chance to welcome SourUltraFast to the decks of Forward. Since then, he has joined the ranks of Risk as bassman and tech-head... Although he has great implication in this dubstep ensemble, SourUltraFast hasn't put aside his original love, Drum'n'bass. Expect some hard hitting neurofunk and extremely tight mixing!
Wally and Rhys are sorry to all the fans who expected them to show up in nothing but blue lycra last week... they were all out at the all blue lycra suits store... They'll make up for it this week with fresh banging beats!
