Brazil in Ottawa

One of the most exciting acts in electronic music right now, we are very excited to bring The Twelves, from Brazil.

"Best Reason to Shut Up and Dance: The Twelves
Their sexy house-inspired jam “Works for Me” landed this Brazilian electronic duo on our 9 Unknown Bands to Watch at SXSW list. At Rusty Spurs, the Twelves earned their SXSW stripes with an airtight, playful DJ mix of old school hip-hop (Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock’s failsafe “It Takes Two”), iconic house (Daft Punk’s Homework-era grooves), and present-day indie rock remixes (Black Kids’ “I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You” really brought the house down). But it’s more than just two dudes and some records: They’re adding keyboard flourishes and drum machine loops to every track, making the already admired hits their own. -- Peter Gaston (Spin Magazine)"

One the bill as well are RhythmWORKS favourites, StrayOtic

This electro-funk duo are quickly becoming one of Ottawa's hottest live acts. Bringing engaging stage presence along with a trunk full of talent, let the Stray-O-tic chant begin

The Latest Artists
A multi-talented collaborative duo, this couple have been involved in multiple artistic projects in Ottawa, often at the same time. Having recently toured across Canada and the U.S., they will provide VJ/DJ duties

Pleasure craft last night was a blast. Pics coming soon
