Bytown Blog! & Ottawa Shufflers Community Presents 'Neon Nights'
If you've attended a dance music event in Canada's capital, you've likely come across a member of the Ottawa Shufflers Community (OSC). Their passion for the style of dance and endless positivity is truly contagious. You've heard the quote, "let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier," well, we couldn't think of a more fitting saying to describe these joyous individuals!
In addition to radiating sheer bliss and passing along the knowledge of cutting shapes, the flourishing community has been hard at work to make their name known. On top of frequently hosting shuffle meetups and event giveaways, OSC recently unveiled a brand-new undertaking. On Friday, June 10, 2022, the group is teaming up with Bytown Blog! (BTB) for their first official EDM Rave, christened Neon Nights!
This unexpected collaboration is a true match made in heaven! For over a year now, the 'Bytown Blog!' has been hosting local music and poetry shows that highlight the local black cultural scene. When combined with the OSC's equal love of music, we have no doubts that their upcoming event will be anything short of spectacular. To add to the excitement, the location will remain a secret until the morning of the official event.
"I wanted to try something different. After hosting 4 hip-hop showcases, I started to get interested in EDM. I’ve learned to love the music and culture. A friend invited me to join the Ottawa Shufflers Community, and I loved it! So, we decided to collab to make an event for both brands. I’m super excited and proud of this event! I can’t wait to bless the city with a great show." -Jean-Luc Ducamp, founder and organizer of Bytown Blog!
Despite the mysterious location, it has been disclosed that the venue will be located somewhere on Rideau Street. It has also been revealed that local talents Hunter Haze, Huntingdeng3r, Matfroninja, and Heavy K, will be taking the decks. These skilled musicians will be unleashing a vast array of music genres such as bass house, techno, afro-house, bass, and house. You'll especially want to get your dancing shoes ready as OSC member @shufflinsara will be teaching a special beginners' shuffling class from 11:30 p.m. to 12:15 a.m.
“I’m just so happy to see how much the Ottawa Shufflers Community has grown to the point that we’re even hosting our own event! This is just another opportunity to bring Ottawa closer together for a fun night.” -Sydney Switzer, Shuffler
Be sure to grab your tickets for this highly-anticipated 4-hour event (10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.), before it's too late. Trust us, with the promise of ideal collaboration, a stacked local lineup, professional shuffle class, and a killer neon theme, we have no doubts it will sell out...All that's left to say is, see you on the dance floor, rave babes!
