World-class DJ at Bud’s Bar and Lounge

Invermere will once again play host to a world-class DJ next month.

Invermere will once again play host to a world-class DJ next month, as British DJ Featurecast graces the stage at Bud’s Bar and Lounge on Thursday, December 6.

“He’s not as flamboyant… he does a lot of scratching and sample dropping,” said Marc Lefebvre of Love Give’r Events. “He seems like a nice figure up there; he’s just a good wholesome guy who likes to drop songs.”

Hailing from Southampton U.K., Featurecast (aka Lee Mintram) has played some of the biggest music festivals in the world.

He’s performed at Canada’s Shambhala Festival, Germany’s Fusion Festival, Serbia’s Summer 3p Festival and the UK’s Bestival, and toured the USA, Australia, Brazil, Canada and all over Europe.

His first single, Composing Blind was released in 2000, and since then Featurecast has released better than 16 singles and Ep’s culminating in 2012’s full-length album Run for Cover.

“A lot of his music is feel good and well intentioned,” Lefebvre said. “He has some remixes that have some love in them.”

For Featurecast’s performance at Bud’s, tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door, and are available at Bud’s and at Syndicate Boardshop.

Lefebvre said he wanted to bring another DJ to Invermere after the outstanding success of Krafty Kuts, who played Bud’s in September, and said he hopes Invermere will welcome Featurecast with the same

enthusiasm.

“People are seeing the worldliness of it all,” Lefebvre said. “These guys get to go around the world and play the clubs, the best clubs in the best cities, and we’re just so lucky to have these guys touring in our area and actually caring about playing in small towns. We need to show these guys that we love them too.”
