DJ Kidd (Casey Gunning) has grown up listening to all types of music thanks to his musical family of drummers, songwriters and guitarists. He’s been rocking clubs and parties for over 10 years in Montreal. In 2000 he started one of the most talked about club nights in Canada, Tokyo Sundays. It’s been voted best club night in Montreal and has been a consistent success for the last 7 years in Montreal. Maxim magazine has given massive acclaim to Tokyo Sundays as one of the best club nights in North America.

Kidd has opened for artists such as Sean Paul, Questlove from The Roots, DJ Numark, and Jin. He likes to mix it up with reggae, hip-hop, funk, disco, classic house, old school, and anything else that rocks the crowd. You can catch him holding down a strictly dancehall party on one night and rip up a funk jam on the next. He is known for his versatility and is credited as one of the most adaptable party rockers in Canada.


The Goontribe has been a staple within Montreals night-life scene and have been attracting party goers to some of the best and most memorable celebrations ever hosted in the city. This coming Friday night, Shine Nightclub is excited to feature two of their headlining members for a clubbing event that is beyond comparison.

Join DJ Goldenchild and DJ Kidd; crowd movers whose reputation precedes them, and feel the one-of-a-kind enthusiasm, versatility and energy that have them high in demand not just locally, but internationally as well. This is your remedy for boredom, and the best way to put the stressful work week behind you!

With such unquestionable talent in the DJ booth this Friday night, you clearly cant afford to miss out on this event, so call your friends, set the date and get on the list today!

DJ AREMS | | |
Born and raised in Vancouver DJ Arems started off as a battle DJ at the age of 15 but soon got into party rocking and made his club debut at the age of 18 in Victoria under the eye of Vancouver Island legend Degree One. Always a fan of Funk, R&B, Soul and True School Hip Hop, Arems soon became addicted to Reggae and Dancehall which heavily influenced his style of play and changed his musical repertoire. In 2002 he helped form the Faction Sound Crew out of Vancouver. The Team (DJs Tanner, Akshun, Arems and Hype Man Trigga) set their sights on destroying dance floors at any club they played, as well a releasing a flurry of mixtapes along the way. In 2008, Arems was voted Vancouver's Top DJ for his DJ skills and club rocking abilities by Canada’s Top DJ Awards – the Stylus DJ Awards.

U-TERN | |
Garnering universal respect from peers is not common for DJs-cum-producers. U-Tern somehow managed it, and a reputation is steadily building for this humble Vancouverite. Spreading his obvious infatuation for all things music through his blog and weekly radio show, U-Tern is one of those individuals whose passion and drive are enviable. All that is secondary though: immaculate, charming disco-funk tracks are the standout here. U-Tern’s use of real instruments and his exceptional production chops translate into truly authentic pieces of music striking that balance between nostalgia and the 21st century.

Facebook Event:

U-Tern "Body Work: Volume 1"
It's been over a year since I released this mix and all the CD's are gone, so I figured I'd share it with those of you that didn't get a copy. It's a 60 track mix of various Boogie, Disco, Electro and other funky oldschool tracks with plenty of edits, blends, sound FX and vocal dubs.

DJ PUMP "Sevonte Swang"
his is a mix i put together that features some of my personal favorite tracks from the early 80’s club/dance era. You may call it funk, boogie, disco or whatever you prefer. It’s good music for your listening pleasure. Enjoy :)

Good things happen when tight knit friends with a deep love of music decide to join forces. After practicing and honing their skills as bedroom DJs, Arems, Tanner and Akshun soon found themselves playing in lounges, DMC battles and smaller clubs around the way. All three DJs got involved in college radio as well and by the time they met in Vancouver it did not take long for a bond to form. The Faction Sound Crew was formed in 2001 by Dj's Arems, Akshun & Tanner and was joined by hypeman MC Trigga in 2006. Residencies at some of Vancouver's bigger night clubs soon popped up and the crew began working on Mixtapes and Radio Production.

Four years later The Faction found themselves opening for world class DJs and urban artists all over British Columbia. Their mixtapes soon caught the attention of a wider audience across Canada and began spreading around the globe. Currently the Faction has released 15 mixtapes in group and solo projects with a diverse range of musical styles including Club Bangers, Underground Hip Hop, R&B, Dancehall, B-More and Electro. In 2007 the Faction was nationally recognized at the Stylus Awards with a nomination for best mixtape. 2008 brought 3 more Stylus DJ award nominations including Best Mixtape, Best Canadian Reggae DJ, and Favourite Vancouver DJ which was won by DJ Arems.

As of late the world has come calling. In 2007 the Faction embarked on an Asian tour playing in the mega clubs of Shanghai, Taiwan and Hong Kong as well as doing many dates all over Canada. 2008 found the Faction touring in Europe and also included 2 National tours playing at some of Canada's largest mega clubs including multiple dates at the Guverment in Toronto (rated one of the top 5 clubs in North America).

Locally The Faction has been holding down residences at Vancouver's hot spots for unheard of lengths of time with over 6 years at the Plaza club, and 7 years at Whistler's Savage Beagle. Their infamous industry night at Balthazar, Sunday Night Soundsystem ran for 5 years and established Sundays as a big night to party in Vancouver. The Faction Sound Crew has played in every club in Vancouver and can be currently found DJing six nights a week at, Shine, Richards on Richards, Tonic, The Plaza and at Whistler's Savage Beagle. If you've found an insane party you've most likely found where the Faction is playing.

Emerging from Canada’s fashion capitol: Montreal; DJ New Money is well suited when it comes to the creativity he brings to the city’s nightlife. Relatively new to the DJ scene, New Money has positioned himself at the top and has quickly captured the attention of industry leaders across the nation.

Drawing his influences from such icons as: DJ Premier, Diplo, & fellow Canadians: Team Canada DJ’s; New Money embodies passion, energy, youth and originality.

With a style like no other, New Money welds high energy breaks with calculated mixes of club hits and party starters. Whatever the party, New Money is able to gratify the crowd without compromising his creativity.

Having already done numerous nation wide tours and holding down the hottest night in Montreal at the Bluedog every Thursday, New Money shows no sign of slowing his momentum. With various mixtape projects, online radio shows, and international appearances, New Money will be a household name when it comes to entertainment.
