He incorporates live remixing into his sets and uses his technical skills to layer elements. Every record he plays has intention that aids in creating a unique narrative every set. Eduardo is also the founder of the VOODOO event series in Los Angeles and the HABITAS event series in Mexico. Eduardo Castillo just recently had his Canadian debut in March at the Love Child Social House in Toronto and will be making his return to Canada at Camp Summerdaze.

The Parallells is a French duo of Thomas and Julien de Bie who are based in the Netherlands. They come from a jazz background and both played at the Jazz Conservatory. Their sets are deep and melancholic, so it’s no wonder the two brothers are also residents of Amsterdam collective The Gardens of Babylon, Ibiza’s party Woomoon and Berlin’s event Bordel Des Arts. Their YouTube channel features episodes of creative videos where the duo plays sets in different environments, ranging from a Cancer research lab to an organic supermarket. They challenge themselves by recording soundscape samples on the H2N Zoom and incorporating those sounds into their live sets. Check out one of their videos below!
With releases on Dirtybird Records, Cocoon and Get Physical, Tim Green is a producer who pushes the boundaries between being a DJ and a live performer. With tracks like ‘Her Future Ghost’ and ‘Echo’, Green has proven himself worthy of producing film scores for movies that have yet to exist. His tracks are euphoric and progressive, embedded with raw emotion that is sure to take listeners on a journey of self-reflection. Listen to his latest album below!
There is so much more than just the music at Camp Summerdaze. It is located on a private property in Northern Ontario, secluded from the busy city life.
