One last night with friends before heading for warmer shores… After months of talking about it, the next adventure is finally here. Leaving over a decade and a half in Calgary, my wife Sarah and I are moving to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. A new life awaits, but the friends and memories from this current one will be always be cherished. This city has given us a chance to build relationships and share special moments with many incredible people. You all know who you are, and we will miss you dearly.
So this is it, one last night. Come down and share in one more special moment. The venue is Habitat, a club that over the years has provided me with many opportunities to be involved in Calgary’s vibrant music scene as a DJ, producer and fan of quality music.
Three stubborn flag-bearers for proper progressive music are on the bill. Headlining is a long-time friend and fantastic dj/producer I truly look up to, Darin Epsilon from LA - and he'll be celebrating his birthday with us! Rounding out the night is local dj Joey Grochmal, whom many witnessed do something very special during the last dj competition, and lastly myself - playing what might be my last gig in Calgary for years to come.
Thank you to Cary and the rest of the Habitat team for supporting the vision for this night and making it happen.

"America's no1 progressive artist" - Change Underground
"North America's leading figure in pure Progressive House" - Clubbing9ine.com
"Darin has grown to become a forerunner of the progressive and tech house scene." - Less Than 3

"Darin Epsilon is King of Progressive House Music" - USL Magazine
Internationally acclaimed DJ, producer, radio host, and label owner Darin Epsilon is often referred to as a leader of the Progressive & Tech House scene. His Perspectives radio show and podcast, along with his frequent guest appearances on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio allow him to reach tens of thousands of listeners on a regular basis. His SoundCloud page alone has over 1 MILLION total plays and receives a whopping 10,000 plays per week. He launched his record label Perspectives Digital in November 2010 as an extension of the brand, further solidifying his influence and presence within the global dance community. To top it all, he was named one of the winners in John Digweed & Beatport's DJ Competition during the summer of 2011.
As a gifted student of music from an early age, former record shop employee, and former director of a college radio station, Darin draws inspiration from his nearly encyclopedic knowledge and genuine appreciation of electronic music. He cites a variety of important influences in the past decade, from the early Leftfield and Future Sound of London albums, to the iconic Global Underground compilation series, to the sweeping sounds of Paul Oakenfold circa 1999, to Sasha & Digweed's mind-blowing Delta Heavy tour in 2002.
To date, Darin has released music on many of the industry's most respected labels including Renaissance, Sudbeat, Hope Recordings, Perfecto, Armada, and Black Hole. His productions have entered Beatport's Top 100 charts numerous times and are featured in the compilations of Nick Warren, Hernan Cattaneo, Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Paul Oakenfold, and Max Graham, among many others.
If you have ever been in the audience to catch one of his live sets, it becomes almost immediately apparent that he is proficiently skilled as a DJ as well. His frequent flyer miles seem almost continually on the rise with regular tours around the world. He has electrified audiences across the United States, as well as headlined shows in Argentina, Kenya, Russia, UK, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Bulgaria, Colombia, Peru, Dominican Republic, and Costa Rica.
Over the years, he has shared the spotlight with many of dance music's superstars including Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, John Digweed, Sasha, James Zabiela, Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz, Ferry Corsten, BT, Sander Kleinenberg, Fedde Le Grand, John Graham (Quivver), Josh Gabriel (Gabriel & Dresden), Jody Wisternoff (Way Out West), Dirty South, Morgan Page, and countless others. He has also been invited to perform at North America's biggest festivals including the White Wonderland, Nocturnal Wonderland, and the Ultra Music Festival.
However, it would be foolish to say that his achievements have been purely confined to the club setting. Global brands such as MTV, American DJ, American Audio, Elation Professional, and Global Truss have all called upon him to provide the soundtrack to their videos. His music can also be found in the films Ecstasy and Slip Cue, placing him in a small category of producers that have ever made it onto the big screen.
With hard work, passion, pure dedication to his art, and support from the industry's most revered names, this Chicago native turned LA transplant aims to prove that this is only the beginning to a long and promising career.
