Knowa Knowone is a Bay Area turntablist/producer and co-owner of the record label Street Ritual. He is considered one of the founders of “Glitch Hop”. Fans know Knowa as someone who vibes off of his crowd’s energy, directly connecting to his audience, raising them to a euphoric and ecstatic state. His live sets are funky, fun and have every single person on the dancefloor. Hailing from North Carolina, Knowa began his professional career as a DJ, producer and promoter over a decade ago, cutting his teeth at raves and drum and bass events from New York to Miami. His first Hip Hop crew was recognized by The Zulu Nation, and the roots and values of HipHop are still a strong influence on his music.
Knowa Knowone has performed with artists such as Noisia, Freq Nasty, Random Rab, and Mimosa, playing shows around the globe and festivals including Symbiosis Gathering, Burning Man, The Boom Festival (Portugal), and Electric Picnic (Ireland), Shambhala Festival. Knowa was recently featured on the Transnational Dubstep Compilation, released by Generation Bass and Six Degrees Records. Knowa has collaborated with the artists such as Ill.Gates, David Starfire and Souleye. Knowa’s release with Sleepyhead as Knowsleep, released in 2008 put Knowa on the map as one of the pioneers for glitch hop and dubstep in the US. Knowa has been releasing music on San Francisco’s premiere dubstep and glitch powerhouse label Muti Music for the last three years, and his production has been highly revered. His past releases “Free Energy”, “Noble Savage”, and “Sound Paintings” have shown his ability to move effortlessly between Dubstep, Glitch Hop, and Experimental Hip Hop. Knowa’s music combines traditional midtempo and breakbeat with deep bass, glitchy sounds, ethnic rhythms, and psychedelia to create a sound that stands out as uniquely Knowa Knowone.

Fritz The Cat

Soundcloud

AKA Jesse Fritz is one of the co-founders of Perception Events. As an event artist, Jesse has booked numerous, international and up and coming performers from all over the world. Constantly keeping his ear to the ground for the next dope sound, it is his intent to bring these sounds to Vancouver.

Jesse has always told himself that he belongs on the dance floor or behind the scenes of dance culture. But aside from producing events, and always being the last to leave the floor, Jesse has had an addiction to searching out dope new sounds. After building up a collection, he feel it’s only right to share this music with those who might not ever hear otherwise.

You can expect to hear music you’ve probably never heard before everytime Fritz steps up to the decks. Never limiting himself to a specific genre, Fritz finds the good in all genre’s of dance music. As an event programmer he tailors his sets based on set time, the vibe of the show, and who he is playing before and after.
