DJ Stingray is one of the most... electrifying DJs in electro, where even just watching him throw down is exciting.

Forth invites one of our most cherished legends back to Toronto for a second round of sonic take downs and party rocking frequencies.
“We need radio stations, we need videos, we need to write songs. We need to do everything these big guys are doing without compromising our sound and our aesthetic. We have to be willing to invest in ourselves. And stop treating ourselves as the step-children of the music industries. And let's get out there and push our efforts, our sounds, our concepts out there.”

In 20 years, Sherard Ingram, better known as DJ Stingray, has solidified himself as an electro pioneer and a mainstay on the underground DJ circuit. His sets are packed to the brim with floor bumping electro and face melting techno experiments. He’s relentless with working the mixer, and his quick cuts will leave you in awe of his unique mixing style that harkens back to his roots in Detroit. We had him down in 2017, and we are just as excited to bring him back to smash in the new year.

Toronto’s City Dance Corporation will be dishing out raw off-the-cuff moments with his improvised live techno. By relying on pure instincts from the body, these vulnerable live performances bind dance music cliches with utter chaos. Expect a construction and destruction of tracks fashioned in the present moment, and then tossed into the heat of the night.
► Boy Pussy - https://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/boypussy
Boy Pussy is a staple of Toronto's queer underground and an artful mixer of hard techno and classic house often heard at transgressive queer parties such as Pornothèque and Blood Sweat & Queers. They also run an independent record label Wet Trax, launched to represent Toronto's queer dance music microcosm and beyond. We’re ecstatic to have them close it out by cranking the dance-floor into a sweaty, hot, mess.
► Kehdo & Dr. Blowfin Jr
If you’ve been entrenched in the underground dance music scene in Toronto, these two really need no introduction. Kehdo & Dr. Blowfin Jr. have been indispensible figures, having their hands in the cherished Techno Tuesday at the Embassy, and now massaging their own heated left field line ups across the city as On Earth. Their sets before the headliner will surely be the on switch for the rest of the night.
TYVYT|IYTYI will be opening the floor with his knack of chugging synths and contorted bass lines. His music has been released on the likes of Vivod and Pinkman records, and it’s a perfect match for the dark grinding spaces of the dance floor where the paranoid and the sequestered find a common ground.
