SNORK: The musical voyage of Dominic Martin alias Snork started in the early nineties when he was 13 years old. At that time he started experiencing trumpet and drum in various rock bands. At the beginning of the year 2000, Dominic made a major change in his musical orientation by going into electronic music. Snork is the nickname he adopted for his producing projects, and the pseudonym Kataleptic for his performances as a DJ. He has made many public appearances in ambient, IDM and hardcore.
He quit djing in 2001 to work on his snork projet to eventually perform his compositions live. He has been concentrating in different musical spectrums that range from techno to break to minimal ETC. The Montreal public has seen him perform at various events such as Piknic Electronik, Soma and FFW. His first EP Coccinelle was released on the label Pertin-nce and his first album, Bedroom Works, varying from downtempo to experimental is available on iTunes as of March 2009.
During the summer of 2009 Snork joined the collective Noerg, and continues to produce new varieties of techno and down tempo with touches of break and IDM.

DIALECT: Straight out of the northern lands of Deux-Montagnes...
Initially influenced by hip hop acts such as KRS One, Native Tongues, Gangstarr, Jeru the Damaja., He began to pursue a Hip Hop scratch dj status in 97. With the newer generation of "Shit-Hop" emerging from numerous Hip Hop labels, he became frustrated, fed up, and discontinued purchasing Hip Hop vinyls altogether.
Still producing Hip Hop instrumentals, and working with local MC's, Dave Dialect was still unsatisfied with the current "scene" until his first visit to the afterhours. An easy convert to the Break Beat sound, Dialect blends the precision skills of turntablism with an ear for the underground electronic music community. Dialect can be heard spinnin' "Erectro, Real Skool Breaks, Dirty Disco, Drug-Step, Bassline Whore-House, Fist Funk" and more.
DESTRO : Longtime Montreal techno DJ Destro is also a partner in Noisefloor Productions, helping to organize banging techno-friendly parties at Stereobar, Salon Daome and the Tour Levis recently. Though steeped in hard techno, with the advent of digital technology Destro's DJ sets have been given over to exploring the more minimal sounds of the present and future.
