Dennis Ferrer @ Maison Mercer

Last Friday I was lucky enough to catch Dennis Ferrer‘s show at Maison Mercer in Toronto. Dennis is an icon in the underground world — some might even say he is the underground world. Whatever your opinion may be, one thing is indisputable when it comes to Dennis Ferrer: you get your money’s worth. While most DJs are in an out in a two-hour set, Dennis plays tracks for a good four hours before even breaking a sweat. And his fans are similarly tireless. It doesn’t matter if the bar closed at 2 am, they aren’t leaving until Dennis leaves — which on this night was 4:30!

Here are some video highlights of the night, and a quick chat with Dennis about his favourite underground DJs. Enjoy!

Chris Lake @ Maison – Video

Last month, EDM pioneer Chris Lake¬†blessed Ottawa, Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto with amazing performances. During his Toronto stop, I got a chance to catch up with him and see how things have been. Naturally, he wanted to talk about “Sundown” — and I was more than happy to chat about this massive anthem.

In this quick little Web exclusive video, you’ll get to hear about the origin of what is sure to become an automatic on your spring playlist. I feel like this track is just lurking around, waiting for the first sign of good weather to smile upon us. When that time comes, you’ll find me on a boat cruise, listening to “Sundown” at full blast!

And in case you haven’t already seen it, here’s the video for Chris Lake’s “Sundown.”

Finally, a quick shout out to the folks at Provoke for making things easy for bpm:tv. Be sure to catch Extravaganza Presents Dennis Ferrer at Maison in Toronto on February 10! Never miss a chance to see Dennis Ferrer! Never! More details on the show HERE.
