Skylab is proud to present…
From the far western galaxies of Canada…..
A DJ going on 14 years, Max Ulis was first inspired by the sounds of house, hip hop, and early drum and bass. With the formation of Vancouver’s Lighta! Sound and the success of New Form’s Dubforms parties headed by Malcolm Levy and Michael Red, Max gained ground as one of North America’s first dubstep DJs. Over the past two years Max has shifted his focus away from dubstep, coming full circle with his music to reintroduce elements of his first loves, house and techno.
Max’s music has been played by notable performers such as XI, Grenier, Joe Nice, Starkey, Breakage and Stereotyp and he has shared the stage with a who’s who of contemporary dance music.
To quote Resident Advisor’s Andrew Ryce, “Max Ulis’ increasingly diverse output could hardly be described with any one term, but it’s all united by an extremely spare and dry aesthetic. Stripped back, pitch black, and stark, he strikes an enviable balance meshing the dark with the dance floor.”

Special Guest VJ Carrie Gates!
Carrie Gates’ video mixing performance work uses sound-reactive processing and unusual rhythmic juxtapositions to create throbbing, psychedelic, responsive compositions that add a new dimension of interaction and intrigue to the environment. Abstract digital imagery is mixed live with hand shot, performance-art-influenced

She has been highly involved in the experimental electronic music scene and independent and artist-run organizations since the mid-1990s.

Skylab is a monthly club night in Saskatoon held at Le Rendezvous in beautiful downtown Saskatoon on the first Saturday of each month. Styles range from House & Techno, to Bass music, Breaks, DnB and some dub & glitch as well. We mix it up with our styles and try to provide something for everyone.
The nights focus on space and cosmology, the study of the universe. There will be many pictures of galaxies, nebulae, stars and many other photos from our great and ever-expanding universe. People like to wear galaxy leggings and space themed clothing.
Have fun, be safe, and don’t forget to look up.
