Friday March 15th, Helix Music and City At Night present “STASIS” featuring Pig&Dan (Dan Solo).
PIG&DAN: (Elevate, Drumcode, Fryhide)
The formation of Pig&Dan may have been an unusual one, but was no doubt fate. The two crossed paths on a flight to Mallorca back in 1999, when Dan was a resident DJ at Ministry of Sound and touring globally, and Igor was deep in the world of illegal underground raves whilst producing music under the name Tropic 39. By that stage the two had gone through a number of strong formative years surrounded by music. Growing up, Dan was exposed to some of the most influential musicians of the time. His father was regarded as one of the greatest Saxophone players in the world, working with legends including Marvin Gaye, Phil Collins and Ray Charles. It was the perfect environment for the young boy to spark an ear for melody and grooves. Having worked with great success as a sound engineer in his teens and early 20s, Dan founded his own group ‘Intense’ alongside one of his oldest friends. The group, while playing at raves all over the UK and producing innovative new music remained confined to Britain, until they launched Logical Progression Level 3 at Brixton Academy. With a live recording of their new album, they became an underground hit and were signed to Sony Japan, taking them on tour globally. Igor, by the age of 16, after a visit back to Mallorca for a summer vacation where he first experienced nightlife, regularly went out at every opportunity he had. When he finished school and moved to University in London, all his money went to growing his record collection and he would spend hours mixing at his house instead of studying. Every moment he could spare would be spent in some of London’s landmark clubs, such as The Cross, Ministry Of Sound and Club UK, which all played a huge part in Igor’s progression into the world of electronic music

STASIS; Find your Balance.
Stasis is a state of equilibrium or balance. Our thought process behind the nomenclature is that we want everyone to feel balanced or in a state of inner peace when they come to our events. The main goal for our events is to create a vibe and atmosphere in which people from various demographics can come together and dance in perfect harmony without any negativity or animosity. A biological ecosystem has several organisms living together and pursuing common goals such as adaptation, growth and evolution. Conversely, the organisms that are resistant to change, or are poor at adapting fail and become extinct. This is where we can draw stark parallels in our music scene. Like a biological ecosystem, we firmly believe that Ottawa’s underground scene is a musical ecosystem. It requires a concerted effort from everyone (companies and supporters), to throw quality events, support events as quality clientele and to think progressively to establish prosperity in our music ecosystem. Being vindictive and predatory is counter-productive to the potential growth of Ottawa’s underground music scene. We truly believe that great strides have been made in the city over the last few years. We Helix Music, believe we can provide another cog to the wheel of success in Ottawa’s underground music culture. This is the foundation of our company and our events alike. It is all about the love of music. Music is what we are for and we want to see positive growth from Ottawa’s underground scene as a whole.
