BACKGROUND
Over the spring and summer of 2017 marine debris and driftage items were recovered from the remote wilderness of Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands and residing waterways. During this time hundreds of volunteers and sponsors contributed to large scale cleanup operations to remove marine debris and drfitage along the West and East coasts of Vancouver Island. Loads of debris have been transported to our new debris in-take centre located in South Vancouver. To date we have had over 8 B-Trains of material enter our grounds and have been sorting debris throughout the summer. We are estimating that by the end of the collection season we will have collected over 500 supersacks (1 cubic yard each) of materials with additional loose itmes which consist of tires, barels, pallets, hundreds of buoys, over 150 cubic yards of mixed foam, and unidentified objects. 

It is estimated that about 1/3 of the material collected from the West coast of Vancouver Island is from the devastating tragedy of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. This earthquake was registered at a magnitude of 9.0 (Mw) and reported 15,894 deaths. It is with care and respect that we help to recollect this drfitage and return some of these items back to the Japanese people. We thank the Japanese people for their previous financial gift which allowed this work to gain great momentum in British Columbia over the previous years.

It has been our upmost priority to arrange after life solutions for this debris to the best of our ability. In 2015, we were able to purchase our first plastic to fuel machine to begin converting various plastic resin codes back into a usable fuel. 

*** We will again have our demonstration plastic to fuel machine running as an example of sustainable end of life solutions to a lot of this plastic debris.*** Come watch bottle caps turn back into a light crude oil***

Current partners, allies and contributors to Canada's first marine debris upcycle centre for the 2017 season: Updates coming soon!

The generous financial gift given by the Japanese Ministry of Environment and the BC Ministry of Environment helped launch this project in 2016.

With recent releases on Selador, Noir, Suara, Hive Audio, Tulipa and Sudbeat, Dave Seaman, one of true the legends of electronic house music, is on a creative roll in 2016. A globally respected DJ for over 25 years, he’s played in over 80 countries around the world and remains an exceptional artist who is always looking to the future. His label together with Steve Parry, Selador Recordings has been one of the most exciting labels around since its inception 3 years ago, releasing many different colours of house and techno and in this current world of limited shelf life, ever-diminishing attention spans and fast-moving, here-today-gone-tomorrow disposable club culture, it is the mark of true talent and dedication that Dave Seaman is still on everyone’s radar.

Justin’s pensive nature is ubiquitous with his productions and DJ Sets. His music is both technical and engaging, nerdy and seamless. He was a dancer of House long before he was a DJ, giving him an intuitive knack for reading a crowd, feeling the right groove for the right moment, and weaving emotions throughout a set. To experience Justin Massei’s music is to lose yourself within a labyrinth of his own twisted lens of introspection. He’s still lost and searching, but he’s ok with that…

To those who still may not know all that much on Dan, we’ll help you out from under that rock. As you can tell from just a bit of the praise from musical icons DJ Dan has received, our West Coast bred friend has been around the block a few times (and turning heads all the while). Music has been forever entrenched in Dan’s life, having garnered a superior record collection at the age of 8 that would give Amoeba Records a run for its money. Starting his professional musical career with some smaller clubs in Seattle and then Los Angeles, DJ Dan had a rise to recognition in the dance music community that could be considered meteoric. Forming the Funky Techno Tribe in 1993, DJ Dan fused together breakbeat, house, dub, and techno to create a sound that later was fittingly crowned, “West Coast House”. And with renowned tracks like “Needle Damage”, and remixes for everyone from Depeche Mode to Duck Sauce, Dan’s production prowess is undeniable. The journey that Dan’s talents have taken him on could go on for pages and pages. He has played alongside the likes of fellow legends from Carl Cox to John Digweed with a mission of making club goers unable to fight the urge to dance the night away.

And it’s not just party goers and fellow DJ’s who bow down to Dan, the press have drooled over his music. DJ Mag named DJ Dan the #1 House DJ in 2006 while Urb Magazine named him “America’s Favorite DJ” and “America’s Hardest Working DJ” while he was also DJ Time’s ‘America’s Best DJ’ 2014 Top Ten Finalist. The media has never been more accurate. But one of the proudest moments could be said when THUMP warned partygoers to ‘never fuck with DJ Dan’ much like one unfateful attdendant did this year in Baltimore to which Dan had the most powerful of responses.

Dan’s widely renowned Los Angeles based label Instereo Recordings,has further etched his name into dance music’s core. With TJR, Phunk Investigation, Wolfgang Gartner, DJ PP, DJ Sneak, Hatiras, and DJ Dan being amongst the many artists featured on the Instereo Recordings, the label is hard to ignore in the industry. Dan also has releases on Toolroom, Pacha Recordings, Ultra, Guesthouse, Work, XL Recordings, Magnetic, Rising, and many others. 

“Dan is a pivotal ingredient to live DJing and production, a real teacher to all."-DJ Sneak

"The thing I love about Dan is that he's always had a funky spirit and he always pushes the elements of music."-Carl Cox
