Nocturne is a grassroots collaboration of passionate local artists bringing the first HSD Sound Systems rig to Canada. With a focus on inclusive spaces and community engagement, we are striving to be a positive light in the Canadian bass music scene. Nocturne team includes Dylan Heinrichs (@krucial_dubz), Jakob Toews (@miirror__ ), and Freya Pare (@lil.stitiousmusic).
HSD Sound Systems is a rapidly rising force on the bass music scene providing some of the highest quality point-source sound for bass enthusiasts. Their work is making waves in the international market thanks to their exceptional craftsmanship and unmatched wubs.
Nocturne honours the rich heritage of dance music and ritual celebration. We support inclusivity and diversity within and without our scene. Any event we participate in should share these values. Everyone has a right to feel safe to express themselves fully through music, art, and dance. We do not tolerate hate, abuse, bigotry or violence of any kind. All our founders and staff are committed to providing safe and accessible spaces and are available to support anyone in need at any event where we are present.
Our focus is on a grassroots, community-driven approach to developing Canada's bass music culture. We prioritize bookings with events, promoters, and venues that champion the representation of marginalized artists on their stages.
Nocturne is based in the unceded territory of the Sylix, Sinixt, and Ktunaxa people.
Nocturne is accepting bookings Canada-wide now.
Nocturne is artist owned. Our members are:
Dylan Heinrichs, the talented and seasoned DJ Krucial, owner of Infinite Sounds and inexhaustible talent manager and buyer, promoter, and artist relations expert.
Jakob Toews, accomplished VJ Miirror, visual artist, and stage designer.
And Freya Paré, DJ Lil Stitious, graphic designer and deco/installation artist.
In addition to a boutique point source audio experience, we are happy to offer any of these services to your event.
