Last Friday evening I had the pleasure of being invited out to one of the largest and most prestigious clubs in Vancouver, club Five Sixty, for a top european DJ’s return to our great city. A masterful house artist from Berlin, Germany, Chopstick has produced and remixed for the likes of Madonna, Britney Spears, LL Cool J, Xzibit and many more, and on a warm August Friday evening, Vancouver had the chance to welcome him back. Although born and raised in Germany, Chopstick had spent some time living here in Vancouver, and so when the You+One management team had the chance to invite him back to the west coast, it’s no wonder he took them up.

Although he is known in European electronic circles for his expertise in artist development, A&R, and label management, his chill and grooving original deep-house/techno beats can easily sell out some of the largest clubs in countries such as Brazil and Germany. While not quite as renown in North America as he is back home, his incredible sound and skill alone attracted a decent sized crowd to the dance floor, and certainly had people that were walking by the club itching to get in.

The party was thrown by one of Vancouver’s hottest up-and-coming event and artist management groups, You+One, headlined by the one and only Mr. Siavash Ashrafinia (or to those of you who have frequented the electronic music scene in Vancouver for some time, DJ Siavash A.K.A. King XL).

Apart from tearing up the night at Five Sixty with Chopstick, You+One has thrown some of the hottest parties in town, such as the Miami White boat cruise party, Vancouver’s only yearly impromptu beach party- Those Dirty Beaches, the We <3 Canada, Canada Day boat cruise (these guys like boats!), and is now going to be co-hosting a regular Saturday night at Fortune Sound Club, home of the incredible DJ Rob Rizk. Hit up their Facebook page for more info, and stay tuned for more of the hottest names in electronic music coming to town- with Siavash behind the ‘tables, you know it’s going to be a real party!
