DJs Timothy Wisdom (pictured in story below ) and Slynk (above) transmit in the funky wavelength of the electronica spectrum. They team up for a Friday night show at Traverse to kick off a busy Revelstoke weekend coinciding with the arrival of the many entourages here for the Freeride World Tour stop in Revelstoke.

Prepare your booty bones, this Friday, March 7 Traverse night club has the pleasure of hosting not one but two ghetto funk phenomenons – Timothy Wisdom and Slynk.

A night of breaks, hip-hop, glitch-hop, drum and bass, dub step and more all under funk’s roof. Ghetto funk is a cross pollination of made for grooving contemporary genres. If you feel like getting smooth AND crunchy this weekend then this is a bite of funky butter you don’t want to miss.

Known as ‘the voice of ghetto funk,’ M.C Timothy Wisdom is a multi-talented DJ uniquely blending MCing, singing, turntablism and heart pumping hyping ability. Headlining many well-known festivals including Bass Coast, Shambhala, Burning Man and Vancouver international Folk Festival he is “at the forefront of west coast bass music.”

Number one is his ability to hype a crowd to the next level of party consciousness. A true storyteller and artist his sets always leave room for spontaneous content and a vibe that never ceases to be stoked.

Hailing from Brisbane, Vancouver-based DJ Slynk is a man of jolly mash-ups (combining samples of songs and electronic music) of funky breaks, classic hip-hop and wicked turntable ways. The current product of his life-long love affair with music including several classical instruments. Gaining much respect for his “rare and rhythmically savvy grooves” he caught the attention of the international bass music scene as one of “Australia’s leading funky breakbeat DJs and producers.” After throwing down freakaliciously uplifting sets at Shambhala, Bass Coast and many other west coast bass festivals he is becoming a household name for break junkies in western Canada.

“Basically, my only rule is to only make and play music that makes you smile and for me that usually means funky.” Get ready to have your cheeks worked by this sweetie slinger, his top-shelf breaks and a bit of humour will bring on the burn.

Preview Slynk, Wisdom and their epic collaborations on SoundCloud, they even have some free downloads on Facebook to promote their show. I found Dance with you especially delicious.

So folks, sip your drinks to the side of the dance floor because you’re going to need all your fingers, toes and square feet to get down to these boys good and proper. Tickets are available at Society Snow and Skate for $10 and at the door for $15, doors open at 9 p.m. and the show starts at 10 p.m.
