Legendary DJ Performs the 2012 Edmonton Pride Show

At each Pure Pride show our goal is to create a magical atmosphere and life lasting memories. We strive to be uniquely “Pure Pride”. This is done by  very carefully selecting the musical talent, performers and the entire cast and crew.

For the Edmonton Pure Pride Show we are very proud to have International DJ/Producer Stephan Grondin (Montreal) headlining our main stage arena in 2012. Stephan’s bouncy house beats, funky bass lines, driven by strong Diva vocals will be sure to have everybody dancing all night long.

Stephan is continually invited to headline large-scale events where he manages to move the masses until they are thoroughly satisfied. He has played at 8 consecutive Black&Blue events in Montreal, 3 consecutive Altitude (Gay Ski Week) events in Whistler and has proven to be THE reason for many truly fabulous Pride weekend celebrations!

Not only enjoyed by thousands of club and party goers however, Stephan is revered by his peers in music, DJs, record labels and artists alike. He has produced many of his own tracks including the Muchmusic Video awards nominated “Wake Up” and the incredibly popular track “Enjoy” which was created in his livingroom. He has breathed new life into numerous songs and has twice found his remixes at the top of the US Billboard charts, for Malina’s “By Your Side” and Barry Harris’ “Dive in the pool”. Several high profile record labels including HiBias, Tommy Boy and Arista records have commissioned his work and he has worked with such artists as Sunny Boyz, Lara Fabien, Isabelle Boulay, Lulu, Sky and many others. In the past few months his remixes of “I Try” performed by Made By Monkeys,“Love Me Right by Stacy Burket and Luv 2 Luv by Suzanne Palmer has been released on Peter Rauhofer’s label *69 Records, Also on Twisted Records his mix of “This Beat Is” by Superchumbo was released on a special 12”. Stephan is currently in the studio hard at work on a couple of fantastic new tracks, U Know I Love It by Superchumbo for the US Label Twisted Records, “Wanna Rock U” an original track to be release in collaboration with Midnight Society, ”Freedom” on En-Soul Records and Somebody by Midnight Society.

By consistently delivering unparalleled nights of musical memories Stephan has built himself a very loyal following of fans around the globe, securing himself residencies at Fly in Toronto, Splash , WORK in New York Parking in Montreal and at the world-renowned club, Stereo. Now, with the help of a small team of friends, Stephan is working to bring his creativity, sweet melodies and pulsing beats to anyone in search of orgasmic nights of dancing and audio pleasure.

Alyson Calagna (Miami) @ Pure Pride in Edmonton

DJ Alyson Calagna’s dancefloor is where faith and fable; gods and goddesses; and discovery and desire meet in a new truthology of sound.

The outernational DJ is the pioneer behind the sound of “Omtronica,” mixing sexual, sensual and spiritual rhythms with tones of empowerment and ecstasy.  From beats of shared consciousness to the tribal ballet of contemporary longings, Calagna’s unique blend of organic sound, poetic wisdom and modern pulses combine to bring the listener to center of their conscience and the heart of the dancefloor.

With an international list of appearances – across the United States and in Brazil, Mexico, Montreal and beyond – Calagna has perfected a sound that is globally influenced and instantly recognizable.  Her music has appeared on NBC’s Trauma and MTV’s Cribs, she has had releases on major dance labels such as Nervous, Stereo Productions, Intenso and Star69. She has also headlined some of the world’s biggest dance and circuit events and regularly plays to sold out crowds at some of the largest venues around the world including Pacha, Space, Crobar, The Government and more. Critics have lauded her for discovering an unmistakable “sound of her own,” and she has garnered a dedicated following in nearly every corner of the world.

Calagna’s forthcoming album, “Omtronica: Music for the Seeker,” marks the debut release of her new, Eastern-influenced sound.  Part yoga retreat – and part South Beach heat – “Omtronica” reinvents the dance experience as a soulful labyrinth winding toward awakening, revelation and power.

By creating a world both personal and external – of both breathing and breathlessness – Calagna, and those tuned into her, become lamas of the mind . . . the mantra . . . the mat . . . and the floor.
