Thursday, March 29 / 2018
***EASTER HOLIDAY WEEKEND***
@ Marquee Stage, Calgary
Dub FX is the epitome of independent music.
In 2006, Melbourne born Benjamin Stanford set off to Europe with a simple plan; live in a van, travel the world and street perform. Fast forward, Dub FX has sold over a hundred thousand records, rocked major festivals all over the world, racked up 150+ million youtube views and organically acquired 600,000 Facebook fans. All completely independently.
“My plan was never to blow up, just to travel and get inspired.”
After endless street performances all over the world, people captured his art form on their phones and posted them all over social media, resulting in viral videos that catapulted dub fx into a brand new type of success that didn’t yet exist. The videos capture his original live looping style perfectly giving the audience an understanding of the layers that make up the eclectic one-person show.
“I like to mix all genres together jazz, reggae, hip-hop, samba, drum n bass, dubstep. whatever I’m feeling at the moment, that’s the beauty of my setup.”
Imagine you’re walking to work; you hear what sounds like a track from a CD played out of a Soundsystem. Instead, it’s one person making all the sounds from just his voice, an FX pedal and a loop machine. Lyrically Dub FX is as real as it gets, consciously projecting positivity and self-empowerment through his music. Exactly what a street corner needs.
“I decided long ago that I want to be remembered for adding value to the world and I can do this through inspiring people with conscious lyrical content, regardless of how unpopular that may be”
Dub FX independently released his 3rd studio album ‘Thinking Clear’ in late 2016 through his label CONVOY in partnership with Germany label Membran. Recorded in his very own Treetop Studios, his innovative blend of genres with environmental scenery creates a holistic experience that inspires through transcendent electronic and acoustic elements.
July 2017 Dub FX goes back to his roots for his latest single, ‘Listening’. A raw dub & reggae influenced vibe that sees him draw from his original influencers. The ‘Listening’ lyric video can be viewed here:https://www.youtube.com/
Dub has also produced an eight-track album of original music and poetry for his partner Sahida. Her music speaks of her travels, self-empowerment, positivity and social justice. Listen to the album here:http://radi.al/RadiantStar

ABOUT DJ BL3ND
Few electronic artists can match the stage presence and energy of DJ BL3ND. In the short time he’s pursued his career, the Los Angeles native has created one of the most loyal followings of any DJ. With a staggering 360 million YouTube views, 1 million YouTube subscribers, and more than 4 million Facebook followers, DJ BL3ND has won legions of superfans (known as BL3NDERS) across the globe with his exuberant viral videos and electrifying live sets.
DJ BL3ND’s road to success was not easy. With the steady creation of crazy videos and high energy mixes, he built a career out of nothing into an internationally acclaimed DJ act by gathering a global fanbase of BL3NDERS. In 2009, he was catapulted into the public eye with his Club Mix YouTube video where he donned his signature mask. The video racked up over 80 million hits and DJ BL3ND was born. Within 3 years, he was playing clubs and festivals around the US (including Electric Zoo, Spring Awakening and Electric Adventure) and in the process, creating one of the most engaging live shows of any touring artist. There’s a certain energy to his performances that you don’t get with a normal DJ. Whether it’s for a club of 300 people or a festival of 20,000, DJ BL3ND never fails to electrify audiences with his high-octane mixing and passionate crowd interaction.
Over the years, his success has been documented by everyone from Billboard, to SoundCloud, to DJ Mag. He’s the record-holder on Billboard’s Uncharted Chart, holding the top spot for 62 weeks and remaining in the charts for a total of 103 weeks; and he was named SoundCloud ‘Artist of the Year.’ He won his hard-earned place in the prestigious DJ Mag Top 100 in 2013, coming in at #91, and in 2014, jumped to #78 on the chart, solidifying his position as one of the world’s top performers.
In 2014, DJ BL3ND stormed the international touring circuit, taking his show outside of the US for the first time officially since Tomorrowland in 2013 and playing some of the biggest festivals around the world. Now, in 2015, DJ BL3ND looks to continue his international momentum, venturing across the globe to showcase his one of a kind live performances to audiences in new countries. While he continues to deliver some of the craziest live performances and music around, his recently established label Loko Sound serves as a home for both his music and up-and-coming artists from around the world.
With a combination of thrilling stage presence, hard work and a genre-bending musical selection, DJ BL3ND is truly a unique sensation. Summing up his reputation in his own words, he says: “My best gig? That happens in a lot of places. From Texas to New York, and now from Europe to Canada and Asia, every night I play I want to make it the best gig that I’ve ever played. I try to make every night as unforgettable for my fans as I can.”
