Bad Eyes Gallery Presents - RITUAL : An Electronic Dance Music Affair (Kentville, NS)

The crew behind ARRIVAL, MASSIVE, and JUICY are back, and ready to bring you the dopest funky fresh bass in your face old school party vibes on a whole other level. RITUAL is an ultra special event, and we promise to deliver the most diverse, high energy dancefloor filled action yet, featuring back to back vinyl sets by legendary Canadian DJs, BOWZER and DJ Nexus6ix.

RITUAL will take place in the smaller ballroom at Martime Express Cider Co. (same floor, end of the hall near the bathrooms) and will be more intimate, more up close and personal, more connected, with more attitude, and more reminiscent of the early underground era. We're bringing new feels, new vibes.

Soon after this, Nexus6ix joined another crew (Slipdisc), and started playing deeper sounds and more housey doings. During this time he played along side The Stickmen, Terrence parker , Christopher Lawrence, Peter Grove aka Sunkissed and Hesohi from Dubtribe.
