MAXXX (Akarien, La Kaste)
We could say about this guy from Sherbrooke that he fell in
a potion of mixes when he was young!! DJing came naturally to Maxxx. Expert
in electronic music, he quickly became known in Montreal’s electro scene.
His demos are always crafted with care and are addictive to everyone that owns
one. Basement Maxxx has been playing at more than 50 partys and in most of the
well-known clubs in Montreal. His last album “Basement Odyssey” vibrates
through the ears of those who know what good electro music is all about!
– djomni.net (Akarien, Electro Shock
Passionate about music since he was born, it’s his love
for electronic music that brought his attention on the role of the DJ and eventually
led him to the rave scene. Very busy on that side for the past three years,
he has been noticed as a resident of the Electro Shock nights and in events
organized by Akarien Productions. He also had the chance to play at Rayjunior
Productions’ Apocalypse 2005 and Evolution Radar One 8. Always evolving,
DJ Omni’s style is quite varied but the breakbeat and electro sounds stay
at the forefront while keeping influences from rock, industrial and even trance.
CRON (aka ZED AKSIS) – zedaksis.net
It’s in 1998,
at the Cream Festival, that Zed Aksis flirted with electronic music for the first
time. He fell madly in love with it and acquired turntables at the end of 2000.
He started his vinyl collections with a style that was very popular at the time,
nu-nrg music, but he soon blended it with a touch of techno-acid. But it’s
two years later, in 2002, while spending a year as resident DJ at the DJ Bar in
Sherbrooke, that he discovered the style that suited him best: trance.
Zed Aksis made his first DJ performance in Montreal at the Elevation
2002 event. In January 2004, he began composing his own trance tracks. You can
listem to them every Friday from 6pm to 7pm, and in rerun on Saturdays from
7pm to 8pm, on beatboxradio.com.
In 2005, Zed Aksis continues to broaden his horizons by diversifying
his musical style more and more. Progressive and electro sounds are now being
added to his usual melodies. His passion keeps growing and seems more mature
by VJ HOMING – vjhoming.com
VJ Homing is from
the multimedia generation. To him, image & video manipulation, web creation,
and visual creation are natural. He has done theatrical improv for more than
3 years… but it has always been behind the machines that his spontaneous creativity
has been expressed at best. Tired of only being a spectator of the electronic
music scene, he realized that the best way to participate actively in the scene
was by offering his visuals.
Style: For VJ
Homing the visuals are there to support the music. His visuals are clear, and
always synchronized to the music. And humorous at times.

Inspired by Andy Warhol’s pop art, Stancyl3’s works
are commercial, but with a sarcastic spin.
“In school, I really liked the aesthetics of serigraphy,
the colors’ flat tint, and I adapted my method to get the same results
with far less means. I fabricate stencils and spray the paint on various material.
This form of painting allows me to transform cold and lifeless
subjects into vivid ideas, or in political, environmental and religious messages…
The repeat of the same image brings a visual overloading that resonates with
the idea of surproduction and surconsumption. Texts are also important as they
convey clear and direct messages which translate into a rather subversive art.
To make my art more available, I chose to reproduce my canvases on clothing
and accessories. I created a collection of bracelets, caps, t-shirts and other
