[Friday.May.18 2018]: STASIS IV
Helix Music presents its fourth installment of «STASIS» featuring a personal favourite of ours: DURTYSOXXX (Funk'n Deep Records / Funk'n Deep Black) with support from ViRL (Helix Music) at City At Night. Durtysoxxx has a deep, dark and groovy sound that is sure to create one Durrrrrrty vibe. We look forward to seeing you there to join our Helix Music Community!
Stasis is a state of equilibrium or balance. Our thought process behind the nomenclature is that we want everyone to feel balanced or in a state of inner peace when they come to our events. The main goal for our events is to create a vibe and atmosphere in which people from various demographics can come together and dance in perfect harmony without any negativity or animosity. A biological ecosystem has several organisms living together and pursuing common goals such as adaptation, growth and evolution. Conversely, the organisms that are resistant to change, or are poor at adapting fail and become extinct. This is where we can draw stark parallels in our music scene. Like a biological ecosystem, we firmly believe that Ottawa’s underground scene is a musical ecosystem. It requires a concerted effort from everyone (companies and supporters), to throw quality events, support events as quality clientele and to think progressively to establish prosperity in our music ecosystem. Being vindictive and predatory is counter-productive to the potential growth of Ottawa’s underground music scene. We truly believe that great strides have been made in the city over the last few years. We Helix Music, believe we can provide another cog to the wheel of success in Ottawa’s underground music culture. This is the foundation of our company and our events alike. It is all about the love of music. Music is what we are for and we want to see positive growth from Ottawa’s underground scene as a whole.

DURTYSOXXX [FUNK'N DEEP RECORDS]
Inspired by the cutting edge sounds of underground dance music, Durtysoxxx describes his musical aesthetic as deep, dark, and driving with a side of groove. Influences include early pioneers like The Prodigy, Carl Cox, John Digweed, Crystal Method and Daft Punk, as well as some of today's most notable producers such as Pig&Dan, Luigi Madonna, Pan-Pot, Tale of Us and more.
His relentless passion for pushing the sound boundaries led to the inception of his record label, Funk'n Deep Records in 2013. Since its creation, Funk'n Deep has seen a fast rise to the top with over 40 charting tracks on the Beatport and Traxsource Top 100 in its first year. The label has seen tremendous support from industry leading DJs including Adam Beyer, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Sam Paganini, Chris Liebing, Umek and many more.
When he's not running Funk'n Deep, Durtysoxxx is keeping busy creating chart-topping techno. With releases across a number of largely popular record labels such as Phobiq, Analytic Trail, Toolroom, Transmit, Respekt, Unity Records, 1605, and Bitten to name a few, his original tracks and remixes have proven to be a mainstay on the dance floor, being supported and played by world renowned DJs such as Sam Paganini, Pig&Dan, Umek and Pan-Pot. Aside form his productions, Durtysoxxx, has showcased his own unique sound in some of the most highly acclaimed venues, conferences and festivals in the world such as Output (Brooklyn, NY), Heart (Miami, FL), Exchange (Los Angeles, CA), The Endup (San Francisco, CA), Kingdom (Austin,TX), Club Vertigo (Costa Rica), Panama (Amsterdam), Melkweg (Amsterdam), Steam (Athens), ADE, WMC, and BPM.
Not one to be limited by genres, Durtysoxxxx has also seen success as a house producer under the alias, Kactuz. His versatility and talent won him the 2014 Discovery Project and gave him the opportunity to play North America's largest music festival, Insomniac's Electric Daisy Carnival, Las Vegas, alongside dance music elites.
No matter what spectrum of electronic dance music he delves into, expect to witness an ever-growing, bold and innovative sound that stays packed with those signature heavy-hitting dark grooves guaranteed to keep the dance floor moving.
