JERK

Bambii’s JERK is a global dance music favourite and more

Three short years ago Bambii decided to throw a DIY party called JERK, which marked her unprecedented descent on the electronic and global dance music scenes. Since that time industry peeps and audiences alike have applauded her for her skills, charisma and diversifying the dance floor. VICE recently hailed her “the best DJ you don’t know about” indicating that if you haven’t seen her live, “you're missing out on some of the best, musically diverse DJ sets in the city.” But no need for collective FoMO, her growing following has been able to catch her heating things up in the BOILER ROOM (the foremost live streaming underground music event), co-facilitating DJ mentorship workshops for young women and touring a bunch of the major music festivals with the Smirnoff Sound Collective.

Although embraced and celebrated in mainstream spaces, Bambii insists on staying close to her roots. In addition to being an inspirational success story—carving out space in an industry that with very little gender representation and resisting attempts to be confined in narrow genre boxes, Bambii has remained a powerful voice connected to community. Given the public spike of racial tragedy and unrest both in Canada and the U.S., Bambii will be donating partial proceeds from this years’ JERK party to the Alton Sterling Family Scholarship, Philando Castile Go Fund Me and Black Lives Matter T.O.

Guest DJs: Birthday Boy and Young Teesh
