Ego Trip Presents Blond:ish, Haywyre, Lonely Boy, + More
Let’s play a game... Truth or Dare? Choose wisely because this isn’t just any Valentine’s affair. Ego Trip’s been away, planning, dreaming and designing a night that excites the playful soul, where insecurities fade, and flirtatious self-expression brings us together. On Saturday, February 11th, we invite you to join us at Spin Nightclub for Leather & Lace II: A Truth or Dare Affair.
In typical Ego Trip fashion, we will be curating a seductive night of music, art and craft vendors sure to arouse and stimulate the senses. Lose yourself as electro-piano mastermind HAYWYRE turns up the heat with his charismatic and experimental dance anthems. Then fall in lust to the ever-sultry and satisfying rhythmic beats of rising house duo BLOND:ISH. Add to that the sexy house stylings of Lonely Boy and a tempting lineup of local house and bass support and you’ll find yourself immersed in a sensorial dream playing a game of Truth or Dare.
There will be two rooms of fun, sexy sounds going ‘til 4:30am, plus art, performances, and local craft vendors. Dress to excite in naughty, yet nice leather and lace, and make the whole place your Valentine!
* We invite everyone to come as you are, but of course we welcome leather & lace *

-- BLOND:ISH --
As members of the notorious Kompakt family, Anstascia and Vivie-Ann have carved out a niche thanks to their original sound and outrageous, fun-loving attitude.
In the beginning there was no plan, just a chance meeting at WMC in 2007 which resulted in a bond, setting off a natural chain of events. From promoting & DJing at their own midweek mangle and Cherry nightclub in Montreal, aptly entitled ‘BLOND:ISH’, it wasn’t long until in 2010 they decided to pack up and ship out of Canada. Landing first in London, the influential city provided the perfect location for their musical endeavours, which manifested itself in several key moments over the following years; from an old friend connecting them to the Kompakt family.
A slew of original productions and gigs all over the world helped to reinforce their undying love for music and demonstrated that, where words fail, BLOND:ISH's music speaks. One of their ultimate experiences taking place at Burning Man where for the last 4 years, they could share their ideologies with like minded people. Remixes for several high-profile artists showcased their ability to put a sly electronic BLOND:ISH spin on a myriad of styles. Electronic music legends Depeche Mode among the many recipients of their unique talents.
-- HAYWYRE --
Haywyre is a project that synthesizes two musical genres, that of contemporary electronic, along with the more established traditions of classical and jazz. It has been building and maintaining momentum since its creator, Martin Vogt, began releasing works under this moniker in 2009.
Vogt’s primary tool for composition is piano improvisation; it provides the foundation for his work and the core of his musical identity. Having spent endless hours in the studio — and upwards of fourteen years studying piano performance — Martin has honed his craft into the professional sound it is known for today, characterized by exciting, progressive tracks which are crafted with unique composition and seamless design.
In 2014, Martin made major leaps with his highly acclaimed “Two Fold, Pt.1” LP, followed subsequently by a modern rendition of “Smooth Criminal” which immediately achieved viral popularity, and succeeded in astounding music critics across the board. After earning the admiration and respect of some of the biggest acts in the industry, Haywyre went on to tour the nation with the likes of Zedd, Gramatik and Mat Zo.
Haywyre continues his mission to provide his listeners with music that not only presents variety and originality, but also carries the essence of a narrative. As one of the most promising young talents on the label Monstercat, Haywyre is bound to impress the world with his instrumental dexterity and production capabilities.
-- LONELY BOY --
Funk conductor, eclectic savant, and master of good vibes: this is Lonely Boy. His talents are omnidirectional, spanning a Master’s Degree in Jazz Studies, television commercials, bike building, sausage making, ice dancing, and tour gigs on every continent (except Antarctica).
Under his new alias, veteran DJ/Producer Joshua Heath has released a diverse palette of cracking tunes on a wide array of labels including Winding Road, Culprit, Desert Hearts, Future Boogie, Armada Deep, Kitsune and Bunny Tiger.
This lonely robot cares not about what genre is cool, what sub-genre is hip, what sub-sub-genre requires jorts and stashes. Deep, dirty, dreamy or Disco, he is programmed with one objective: to send you to outer space on a rainbow made of Oprah's tears.
