On Friday March 10th, Monster Energy & Footwerk presented the Mountain Magic Tour featuring Justin Martin, Christian Martin & Smalltown DJ's at Sapphire. Now a yearly tradition, the Mountain Magic Tour travels around skiing the best mountains in BC & Alberta by day and performing in the Mountain towns by night. This year's tour features stops in Victoria, Golden, Revelstoke, Banff, Fernie, Kelowna, Nelson and Whistler.
The night kicked off with Footwerk head-honcho Manousos showing how well he knows his local crowd, warming things up proper in anticipation of the night to come.
Smalltown DJ's, also seasoned veterans of the west coast flavor, took the reigns from there, kicking things up a notch with an infusion of basslines & heavy grooves to the mix. Bringing a crate of their original tracks which have been released on labels such as Diplo's Mad Decent, A-Trak's Fools Gold and Main Course, Pete & Mike showed again why they've solidified themselves as staples of the Canadian Dance Music scene.
Christian & Justin, The Martin Brothers, followed things up. Widely known as part of the Dirtybird movement, these two left their signature mark upon the Sapphire dancefloor with their unique flavor of House Music, brought to life with their ambient atmosphere's, melodic vocals and bouncy basslines. Their eclectic sound which forms the combination of playful yet technical house music had the entire crowd bobbing their heads and shuffling their feet.
Footwerk's signature vibe came through full force on Friday, the foundation of comraderie in music that has been built at Footwerk shows over their time putting on shows in Kelowna extended even back to the DJ's. The Sapphire crowd was treated to a surprise jam sesh to end the night between the whole Mountain Magic squad.
