Yan Zombie presents: DJ Hexadecible

By Yan Zombie

Greetings music lovers. Thursday, March 28 is the launch of my monthly night at the Spiritbar — Yan Zombie Presents — focusing on quality west coast DJ/ Producers as seen on the festival stages of Bass Coast, Shambhala and Loki for a cheap cover. Our first guest Hexadecible, from Vancouver, is stopping through Nelson on his North American Spring tour. Fresh off a big mix for BBC Radio 1, 2013 looks great for Hxdb. He was nice enough to sit down to tell me a bit about what he’s got in store for the Nelson dance floor.

Yan Zombie: First off, congratulations on the tour. I’m really excited to have you at the first Yan Zombie Presents. Where has been your favourite spot to play on this tour and why?

HxdB: Thanks man! I’m super stoked to come back to Nelson and rock with you at the new night. My favourite spot so far would have to be Astro Nautico in Brooklyn at Free Candy. What an amazing place! Free Candy is a converted parking garage and is now a hip art gallery and venue. The vibes there were so on point and I got to see lots of friends in NYC. Also, getting to play with the homeboys Archie Pelago and Obey City was a treat.

YZ: Can you tell me a bit about the label you work with, Aufect? What it’s all about, and also what we can look forward to hearing in the future from your camp.

HxdB: Aufect is the baby of DJ Cure. Our aim is to promote our group of talented friends’ music. The roster is loaded with some of Canada’s best underground artists, and doesn’t focus too heavily on one particular sound or another, more letting our artists express their creativity in any way they want without boundaries.

Our man Bsmnt from Toronto is currently preparing an album for Aufect. He’s also doing 2 split EPs, one with Vlsonn and one with Ryan Wells. The Nelson/Vancouver powerhouse Philthkids are also set to drop their new massive Ordinateur LP soon, which will be precluded by the single which also features a remix from the one and only Distal! There are also EPs upcoming from Halifax’s P80, and the Ukranian powerhouse Koloah.

YZ: What’s in your ipod on the road?

HxdB: The JETS Fact mix is in heavy rotation, also the new Natiluss and Locked Groove XLR8R mixes are on point. Also, the Slowcast episodes from Max Ulis, Woodhead, Barisone, Danny Corn, The Librarian and Wax Romeo are awesome!!! Of course I also have my newest mixes loaded on there too.


This show kicks off a weekend packed with talent. Top Zombie recommendation: Wakcutt on Saturday and disco funk master Neighbour the following night. Hxdb w/ Yan Zombie is at Spiritbar on Thursday. Cover is $5.
