Bosh Flimshaw: At the tender age of 30 years old, Bosh has spent half his life spinning, clicking and nudging his way through creative mixplay, primarily of the techno, house and drum and bass variety.
On this particular evening he will be serving up a digital techno selection of heavy bangers and scalding burners sure to move your brain and buttocks in relatively equal proportion.
Efemmera: efemmera is a Toronto based DJ of the Chinese-Vietnamese diaspora and is one-third of On Earth.
