Jay Tripwire [POKER FLAT/BASS CULTURE] and
Vernon Douglas [DEEPEN SOUND/CAPACIDY]
Always sitting slightly off-centre, Jay Tripwire is an artist that walks the line as industry staple and ever changing innovator, releasing one standout release after another.
His signature fusion of deep Detroit textures and intricate rhythms has led a career spanning two decades, with over 200 releases and four full length albums.
He remains one of the most prolific artists around, with 18 EPâ€™s and a whole host of remixes having dropped during 2010, for labels including Tonality, Pokerflat, 1Trax, Baker Street, Deep Data, SOCO Audio and System.
Most recently heâ€™s completed a compilation mix for Steve Bugâ€™s respected label Pokerflat â€“â€˜Shaping Elements Vol.8â€™ which features a blend of deep house ranging from Detroit inspired textures to modern European house and tech house fusions, blurring genrefication. This follows releases on the label under his 8Channels name - a project that melds basic channel, soul and dub into a new hybrid soundscape of techno, deep house and dub.
The moniker also appears on other highly regarded labels such as Ransom Note, Conya, NRK, Cinematic and Hallucination.
Whilst the term â€˜legendaryâ€™ is often bandied about with little thought, in Jayâ€™s case we could say just that - his personal arsenal of re-edits and comfort in arranging extended DJ sets lasting eight hours or more certainly demonstrates a talent that deviates from standard fare.
Jay also still supports,buys and plays vinyl, and actively seeks out records to play at gigs, when Tripwire is on the decks he plays a vinyl CD set that contains no laptop djing.
Jayâ€™s work has been featured on numerous compilations, notably from Cocoon, Fabric, Renaissance, Journeys by DJ, Ultra & Bedrock, and is supported by a diverse spectrum of dance culture from house luminaries such as Doc Martin and Kerri Chandler to techno legends Steve Bug and Laurent Garnier. And now with anticipated releases and remixes imminent, the Tripwire production wheel is still very much in motion, and on its way to a turntable near you.
Herbie Hancock once said, â€œMusic happens to be an art form that transcends languageâ€, and house music DJ ad producer, Vernon Douglas, has definitely made Vancouverâ€™s strong electronic dance music community his canvas.
Beginning with an insatiable thirst for finding new music as a child, Vernon was led to the sounds of hip hop, industrial music, early house, Detroit techno and the Warp records sound from the UK. It wasnâ€™t until he experienced the local club culture, that he became fascinated with mixing continuous grooves, which would start his DJ career and long standing love affair with the house music sound, influenced by the DJ styles of Tyler Stadius, Robert Shea, Jeno, Doc Martin, and Chez Damier.
In his 20 years as a DJ, Vernon Douglas has played at numerous raves, afterhours, and clubs throughout the city of Vancouver, which led to shows across Canada, through the Northwest US, and down to the Cayman Islands. His 7+ year residency at the legendary club night, Deepen at the Lotus Sound Lounge was a platform to showcase top international names in house music, playing alongside local masters of the craft. Vernon has played with the industryâ€™s prominent talents including, Tyler Stadius, Jay Tripwire, Terry Francis, Asad Rizvi, Dave Mothersole, Evil Eddie Richards, Noah Pred, Mark Ambrose, Juan Atkins, Swayzak and many more. He has also been featured as the headlining act at renowned BC outdoor music festival, Shambala.
His multi-dimensional DJ sets, stretch from stripped down techno, to jacking acid, Chicago funk, in the groove deep house, and the occasional classic thrown in for good measure. His tracks all have one thing in common: They bear a lineage back to Jack himself. A futuristic dance party, energized with funk, soul and emotion that is sure to move the mind as much as the ass.
In addition to countless DJ mixes, his productions have been featured on OM records, Tim Fullerâ€™s â€œThe Slightest Touchâ€ album by Bombay Records, and on his own Deepen Discs label.
Currently, Vernon Douglas can be found back in the studio, producing under the moniker CapAcidy exclusively for Deepen Sound records. With his obscure synths, vintage drum machines and state of the art grooves, this DJ, promoter, producer and label exec will continue to be a leading force in dance music.

Back in the late 90's, early 2000's, he owned Bassix, a well known Vancouver-based record store, so its to be expected that his record collection would be extensive. He is credited for bringing house music to Vancouver, with countless parties, and timeless mixed tapes. He helped launch SONAR back in 1997, Vancouver's first club dedicated to electronic music, where the club was soon voted one of "Ministry of Sound's" top 20 nightclubs in the world.
