Calgary-based Producer | DJ | MC: Prayer Handz has curated his own unique style and gained a loyal following in recent years.

In the studio by day, this impassioned talent pulls inspiration from the worlds of Hip Hop & Soul Music, and blends them with modern day Bass and Tech House energy. This mixing pot of influences allows each release to be predictably unpredictable; with diversity and creativity flowing throughout his catalogue. In the club or festival circuit by night, his DJ sets offer high energy sounds, fast paced flow, and some live MCing to put the cherry on top of these memorable performances.

Between original work and remixes, his production has earned releases on highly acclaimed labels such as: Mix Feed, Uprise Music, Cloverdale’s Vibrancy, InStereo, OFDM, 3000 Bass and more, with frequent appearances on Dr. Fresch’s Caller ID series. Some recent achievements have seen “Prayer” top Beatport’s Bass House charts with multiple #1 releases (Sour, So in Love, The Truth), as well as a #1 House Album on Canadian iTunes (So in Love) and a massive collab with Pineo & Loeb (Heart Thumpin’).

A crowd favourite at Future Forest 2022, he’s established a firm presence in the North American festival scene, with performances at Electric Sky, Astral Harvest, Centre of Gravity, Bamboo Bass (Costa Rica), Soundwave, and many more. This artist on the rise has also been featured as direct support on tour stops with Dr. Fresch, Ill Phil, Neon Steve, Matroda, Rumpus, and Cloverdale, and has helped to shape the Alberta club scene with his fresh, fun, and collaborative approach.

Also joining us from out-of-province: no stranger to the Halifax scene, Dekz has been a frequent performer here over the years and has helped bring headliners such as Chris Lorenzo to this side of the Atlantic, as part of Static Promotions. A familiar face in the East Coast festival scene, he’s perhaps best known for keeping Charlottetown’s nightlife bumping all year round.

Rounding out the lineup are Halifax locals Vero – a long-time contributor to the scene with heavy involvement in Lighthouse and Vibrancy Fest – and XK & AMIO, the co-founders of Fortress Events.
