|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, Da......tsik, 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.
When we learnd that RUM'n'ASS nights at Vinyl didn't work out, we wanted to show two hard working Montrealers that even though their night brought some competition to bass culture on Thursday nights, Forward supports Rum'n'ass and we are a big bassy family. They did have something real special lined-up for this Thursday so while they're at it, they thought they'd host it at forward!

We thought we'd add one more name to the line-up just to make sure to have a mix of style that incorporates all bass-based music. Funky falz loves wobles (and we're not reffering to the dj from ottawa here but acctual lfo->filter cutoff) so expect a bouncy, energetic mix of music wether it be 4x4, at 95 bpm or half-step at 140 bpm.
