Deep House is like smooth shiny silk lightly draped over your naked body, then slowly pulled down around your body from your head to your feet caressing your every curve. You feel the silk slither, and its delicate slide, as it undresses you exposing every spectrum of yourself.
Spectrum is a new house music event series that will drop Friday August 12 at Toika in Toronto with headliner house music Godfather Gene King. Spectrum is put on by Dangerous Beats which is spearheaded by event producer and DJ JamaL. He created this event for the sole purpose of showcasing Toronto’s continuum of talent and vast genres under the EDM umbrella. Opening night will feature the sounds of deep house, house and tech-house.
Gene King is a Toronto OG and anyone who loves this scene needs to experience and culture themselves on him. His career started in 1982 in Montreal; by 1987 he relocated to Toronto where he played steady gigs at well-known nightclubs, to smaller, more intimate venues and private events. King has an awesome discography consisting of 15 labels, one of which is his own imprint: Shines Records. You can check his sounds on i-liveradio.com.
JamaL is no stranger to event producing and DJing. He’s played crowds from the well-versed Montreal House music scene to Pride Toronto and Toronto’s eclectic scene. His mission is to produce events those who visit his dancefloor will enjoy, to create a positive vibe, and to support great talent — JamaL always aims high, and Spectrum is sure to deliver.
