“Futurewife first made tremors with techno and hip-hop before creating the ultra funky disco and house sounds that he’s known for today. Siphoned melodies and chords from the exotica of 60’s-70’s funk left an indelible impression on his work. He has released on labels such as Immersed Audio, Mortar & Pestle, Viva Recordings, and Audaz.”


Just announced:

KALIBO (Phase Out – Vancouver)

“80s sounds filtered through a fresh modern aesthetic. Tracks that light up smiles on the dance floor, with an energy and rhythm that’s irresistibly moving. Breezy tropic vibes blended with a twist of European flair and the expanse of the ethereal.
That’s what Kalibo is all about.”


Subverted visuals & audio oddities from Resident DJ

From his early success introducing Vancouver’s gay nightlife to then-burgeoning electroclash and nu-disco movements, to headlining club nights across North America, TAFFI LOUIS has a unique reputation for defying simple categorization and reaching further. Drawing equal inspiration from vintage sounds and modern, he explores audience connections through a range of the unexpected, familiar, or forgotten, mixed in a contemporary context. His edits and reworks have won support from the likes of techno/electro icon The HACKER, GEMINI BROTHERS, ITALO BRUTALO, Brooklyn modern disco ensemble MIDNIGHT MAGIC, & more.

BUT WTF IS “TRUCKERDISCO”?!

Maybe not “disco” as you know it: Italo-disco, nu-disco, forgotten & future favourites…from Giorgio Moroder to James Murphy.

Audio oddities, rare grooves, and subverted visuals.

ECLECTIC. INCLUSIVE. AFFORDABLE.

It’s for guys, grrls, hipsters, homos, str8s, folks of all bearish persuasions, killer mustaches, mustache riders, muff drivers, disco dancers, sweet romancers -maybe even you, too!


TRUCKERDISCO Classic Men's Black 100% cotton t-shirts will be available!  Save when you reserve yours with your ticket order!

“Disco is now no longer thought of in terms of celebrities snorting coke at Studio 54 or superficial dance-pop songs, instead it is working-class whites, African-Americans and Latinos dancing together defiantly; it is the foregrounding of female sexuality, and a liberated celebration of the body; it is gay men creating spaces for themselves and demanding recognition.”

– In Defence Of Escapism by Benjamin Conway (2015)
