HQ Chill Stage 2010 Line-Up



Anyone remember “Experiment” or “Poo” ? Well the larger than life, living legend known as Czech, brings on the funky downbeat vibe to add yet another dimension to the aural delights of the Soundwave experience. Kick back and chillax to the sounds of the Master Bater!


Pleasure Frequency

Pleasure Frequency

Over the past ten years, Pleasure Frequency has been a staple in the Vancouver electronic music and Live PA scene. Performing shows, organizing communities (Black Hole Club) as well as promoting popular events and club nights. His collaborative hard techno projects are superseded only by his fearsome solo downtempo performances. His music has been described as "layers of soundscape that cushion the tummy-thumping slow-booming bass drum." and "A slow motion explosion that is both intense and relaxing all at once, like getting a foot massage after hours and hours of dancing." Part minimal, part groovy, a little crunchy, very melodic and always chill. Now residing in Victoria, the island life is having a wonderfully profound influence on his music.



The Hobbyist

The Hobbyist

Experimenting with various styles, The Hobbyist (aka Jason Filipchuk) a Vancouver based electronic musician, stays away from recycled samples or prescribed beats that fit into set genres. His music delights the mind with complex and refreshing soundscapes while keeping the rhythmic ebbs, flows and pulses of dance music.

The Hobbyist draws on his love for the singer- songwriters that he grew up with such as John Prine and Towns Van Zandt and injects that sense of storytelling and craft into his electronic pieces; often incorporating audio recordings of friends, family and unsuspecting strangers.

After spending years recording and touring with electronic and industrial bands, Jason has spent the last year in his studio preparing for his first solo-album release and summer tour of Western Canada. The Hobbyist's Live PA sets are a sight to behold and hear, mixing a glut of gear into deftly orchestrated layers of sound.


Pari Kishi

Pari Kishi

Pan Ambient Cascadia/TKG/Decibel Festival

Born in Bristol, Parinaz Kishi fell in love with the DJ scene whilst growing up in Hong Kong. Now based in Vancouver, her sound is rooted in old school Jungle, Drum’n’Bass, Electro, Ambient and Breaks which is delivered with a passionate energy.

Parinaz Kishi has rocked venues in Hong Kong and Vancouver and finds that her Bass playing "keeps the groove true, and at one with the energy of the dance floor."

However it's spinning Ambient music that allows Kishi to complete the circle, because "to be whole we need the space to chill."




is a music project with sincere intention. The music has been created for the sake of sound vibration and heart. The industrial melodies and beats are mixed with strong, soft female vocals creating a balance between hard and sweet without residing in the middle.

remixes self produced tracks, and sings live, resulting in connection between the electronic music and ones own breath and sound.  


DJ Field

DJ Field

Field aka DJ Field remains on his quest to unearth the freshest sonic vistas from around the world. Inspired by the hybrid musical evolution of electronic, ambient, dub, ethno & lounge, Field is best known to unite modern cross-cultural musical boundaries, introducing to the listeners a new breed of indigenous digital organic music.

Timbrejacks (Steve Intrinsic & Randal D)


tim·bre (pron. tamber)
The combination of qualities of a sound that distinguishes it from other sounds of the same pitch and volume.
Lumberjacks work with lumber. Timbrejacks work with timbres… The duo of Steve Intrinsic and Randal D have been playing records for well over a decade, having been influenced by the deeper end of the spectrum, starting on vinyl way back in the 90s in their hometown, Ottawa. They frequently perform together in Vancouver, playing a vast diaspora of music genres, all of which share a common thread of depth and positive energetic resonance. Performing Friday in the dark for a 2 hour set and again on either Saturday or Sunday for an epic 4 hour journey of chill beach vibes, you'll want to make sure and stop by and cool out with this dynamic pair! | |


SteamBoat Fattie

Steamboat Fattie

Steamboat Fattie's true identity is Mark Brennan, who became known and loved for his off-the-hook after-hours parties in Vancouver back in the day.

Although notorious now as a funky party rockin' dancefloor motivator, Mark's first forays into mixing were with downtempo; weaving long, eclectic Sunday chillout sets. This Soundwave at HQ, he revisits his mellow side.

Come lay yourself out on the lawn, burn one down, and get your chill on to a soundtrack of spaced-out dub, trippy soul, and tasty, seaside grooves.
