You guys had Antix and Fiord recently
also Neil Quigley last year and also Jim Rivers no?
I wish all of them would have played in MTL as well.
Also, did 16 Bit Lolitas play in Toronto? And what about Guy J? He was here a few months ago.
From a real progressive house fan's perspective (IMO), the next few DJs that need to be brought here are Nick Warren (been too long), Eelke Kleijn (tried to work something out but not enough time), and Cid Inc (the guy destroys clubs). Looking farther ahead maybe Manuel Sofia, Ian O'Donovan, Yamil Colucci, Lank and Deepfunk. I'm also hoping Henry Saiz comes back soon (did he play in Toronto?).
Antix and Fiord was a rare treat but I heard those nights were sub-par at best and that only half of the duo showed which is unfortunate. Not sure about Lolitas but I know they most prominently played on boat cruises. Guy J touched down in Montreal but he did not make his way over to Toronto. Henry Saiz has not played in Toronto before either. Neil Quigley and Jim Rivers played here recently but I would not classify them in the Progressive genre at all. Regardless, if we can't get big names like Warren and Cattaneo into Toronto then we need to shoot for the smaller guys who don't cost an arm, leg and a pint of blood.
Yamil Colucci, Lank, Cid Inc and Dousk would be a monster night.
If someone like Hernan has not played in Toronto since '09 then it is clear that Toronto is missing promoters in the Prog department (he was JUST here for B&B and was a big reason many people went to it). I know Shankar and affiliates are the reason why people like Antix and Fiord came into town. I really wish Symphonix would get booked since I know Shankar books talent that are more into the Prog Psy and Full-on sounds.
At the end of the day I know there is a large enough fan base to support the aforementioned artists. Whether or not people are going to make a killing off of these guys or not is another story. Promoters should be putting these events on for themselves and for the music.
