Listen to this 3 hour opening set from DJ Charles! (Bijou Nightclub, Nov 16th)

DJ Charles recently completed a 3 hour opening set for the Chris Schweizer event last week at Bijou and he was good enough to upload the entire thing to Soundcloud:

It was a fun night with a solid crowd showing up for the young up and coming DJ from Argentina. It was the first time I've been to Bijou and found it be a nice intimate venue, a perfect size for OTS Prod event. 

Tonight there are 3 great events to choose from in Ottawa

For the Electro/Progressive House fans there will be Dzeko & Torres at the Mansion Nightclub with DJ Cristangelo opening. Dzeko & Torress have been recently featured on Dancing Astronaut for one of their latest releases 'Hey!' which was also played during Steve Aoki's BBC 1 Essential Mix:

6 days ago they recently released an hour mix on Soundcloud:

You can sign up for reduced guestlist on Want Tickets.


Trance fans will have a very tough decision to make tonight as there are two solid options available. The first one hardly needs any introduction as Cosmic Gate are considered Trance legends and are returning to Ottawa for the first time since their last gig a year ago. DNA Presents are kicking off their 1 year anniversary celebration with Cosmic Gate at Barrymore's.


Christian Schweizer is a name that might not be known to some but he is one of the rising stars in the Trance world hailing from Argentina. He has been a personal favourite of mine because he has produced some great trance tracks that can destroy any dance floor. If you are looking to see a young up and coming Trance producer/DJ that takes you beyond the uplifting Trance style that you are used to then Chris Schweizer at Bijou Nightclub  is your best bet for Friday night. DJ Charles will also be playing an extended warm up set from midnight to 3:00 am!

Listen to his latest hit 'Believe', which was recently featured on an ASOT broadcast. It is currently #10 in the Beatport Trance charts:


There is a third option for those more adventurous and ready to party Friday night: You can pick between Dzeko & Torres or Cosmic Gate for the first event and then head over to Bijou Nightclub for some after hours with Chris Schweizer!

The Bijou night is running late tonight with Chris Schweizer playing from 3:00 am until 5:00 am which gives you a rare opportunity to actually see two full events in Ottawa. Why not? I dare you to.


Tonight there will be 3 events that will be sure to cater to any EDM fan

Tonight will be a huge night in Ottawa as there will be 3 separate events that should please almost any EDM fan:

Tommy Trash at Mansion Nightclub (Only $30 tickets remain):

Tommy Trash currently holds the number #1 spot on the Beatport 100 for 'Reload' made with Sebastian Ingrosso, need I say more? If you want to read a recent review on one of his performances in Texas, check out what YourEDM said. He loved every minute.

Project Offset at Bijou Nightclub, $12 at the door:

Project Offset have been a resident of Montreal's Circus Afterhours for some time now and have developed a style that I would consider similar to the stable of artists from Markus Schulz' Coldharbour Record label. To hear what I'm talking about check out their latest Crowd Control Podcast:

Seven Lions is the latest artist to be signed to Skrillex' OWSLA label and is poised to become one of the next big DJs/Producers in the industry. He still holds the number 1 position on the Beatport Dubstep charts and with his upcoming Seven Lions EP + Skrillex consistent Twitter love - he has the potential to rise even higher. To read more about this rising star, check out my write up about Seven Lions I had written last week.

Tonight is a big big night in Ottawa with some heavy hitters in the locale ready to give us all some memorable shows.
