HOSTS
---------
>>Ben Ferguson and Mike Bowie formed a rave organization in 1992 known as Sykosis. The most legendary of their parties took place at an infamous venue known as 23 Hop. Each event started with an array of throwback 1991 techno complimented by the new sounds of 1992 breakbeats.

>>John Angus is one of the originators of Toronto raving, given his involvement in Exodus Productions. He has since been immortalized in a book, various interviews and a forthcoming documentary.

VENUE
--------
>>The Cameron house has been a staple in the Toronto music/art scene for close to three decades. It's also the only venue still in operation that has a connection to the early days of our scene. The building was recently sold so this event will be one of the last parties prior to its closure.

In the year 1991, a small group of people from Toronto tapped into the then new "techno" sound and began putting together events in this City. What snowballed from there became one of the first and biggest scenes in North America.

If you are interested in reading the history, THIS is a great place to start. The Communic8r has put together a chronological record of how it began, including rare images and long forgotten radio sets that clearly document the birth of "Rave" in our City.

While some can argue with who, how and when the events took place, none can shutdown the impact that companies like Exodus and Sykosis, venues like 318 Richmond street, and figures like Malik X, Dr. No, Mark Oliver and Sean L (Collectively, The Booming System Collective) had in the rise of underground dance music, not to mention the countless other behind the scenes promoters, record shop owners, and of course, the supporting punters.

On Friday April 30th, Join us as we bring together some of the original founding members of underground dance music in Toronto, including our very own Marcus Visionary, dipping into his very early roots which inspired his internationally-renown DJ and producing career, and the legendary Mark Oliver, original member of the Booming System Collective and Techno Pioneer, who to this day still draws thousands on a weekly basis.

In true oldskool fashion, it is only right that the venue plays a vital role in this reunion. The Cameron House was one of the very first venues in this city to give that new sound "techno" a chance, almost 20 years ago, and we are sad to say that this night, Friday April 30th, will likely mark its last time. The Cameron House has been sold, and its future is uncertain at this point.

Join us next Friday for: Reunited - What's on your mind? Techno for all mankind!
