drum’n’bass party invasion in Montreal

There is a new kid in town and it wants to play. But watch out it is dangerous and uses weapons such as dubstep, techstep, breakbeat and drum’n’bass. Invasion is still a small event series, but attracts quite some people already, although it started quite recently in the second half of this year (2011). It mainly featured names such as LIVING STONE, REALITY and Montreal based producer duo ELOI! & HEIGHTS, all Canadian mostly from Montreal. Home made dance music served to you in Mica Lounge.

During my time in Montreal, I went to this party series a couple of times and as far as I heard, the drum’n’bass/dubstep scene is quite competitive. There are several parties the Invasion crew has to compete with, such as the Junglist&Teknoit night on Tuesday at the passport or the Bassdrive party in the Belmont on Wednesdays.
Edit: for the Belmont see also this post.
Next to illegal raves and other special events happening all over the city. But its special spot on a Friday night might give it the chance to become a big thing. At least that is what I hope, because the atmosphere of the party and the club is really nice. I could see skaters, hipsters, dubheads and all kinds of ravers at the party, having fun without bumping into each other. Even a raver in a wheelchair, showing off wicked “dancing” tricks could not be hold back, despite the small stairs at the entrance to the dance floor.

So if you feel like stepping or need some wobbles, check out this new party series!

  1. Le Belmont: pumping electricity into your body | The Artichoke - November 28, 2011

    […] Le Belmont is one of those clubs that you might have heard of although you are not a local from Montreal. In fact it has quite a global known name, which is for example represented in the fact that such artists like Tech N9ne already played there. The nightclub presents active clubbers with a broad variety of music and events, however I of course want to highlight its electronic music oriented evenings. In fact le Belmont has a very good dubstep and drum’n'bass night on Wednesdays, which I already mentioned here. […]
