Electric Island 2016: Civic Holiday By Creators’ Lounge staff Satomi Mitani(Torocal Girls / トロカル女子)

The sunshine beating down on the ground
It was on Sunday in the middle of the long weekend.
The people are totally relieved from works, school, or every other chains
Which bind them to usual, routine daily life
And embarked into the ship which lead them to Toronto Islands,
the place where the best, happiest, event happened.

Just few minutes walking brought us to the paradise
with dance, music, and also drinks.

It was the event “Electric Island” marking its fourth season this year
By the people who love summer,
For the people who love summer
Who’re trying to make the most of this beautiful and fugacious season.

Toronto, Israel, Brazil, Berlin.
From all over the globes Conspicuous, well- known DJs gathered as well as VJs.
People were enchanted by their sounds and lights
Which made them dance freely with their slightly drunk bodies.

The electrical tech music performance in nature
These things seemed controversy at first, but surprisingly, they matched well and interwove harmonized patterns.

The night was falling in the island after a while.
The more it got darker, the more people heated up around the stage.

“Never finish” is never possible.
After the summer passes, the long, severe, cold winter will come here.
So, this is the time to enjoy ourselves as long as our soul let us do.

The sky full stars were covering the island
The heats of the carnival never calmed down
After all, the home ward bound ship carried
Not just the people ,but also the music and dance
To the next place in the mid night downtown.




照りつける太陽
8月のLong weekendも佳境を迎える日曜の午後
仕事、勉強、あらゆるしがらみから解放された人々は
ダウンタウンの喧騒から逃れ、船に乗り込み、
会場となるトロントアイランドへいざ向かっていた

島に着き、公園を少し歩いて開けた場所にたどり着くとそこは
音楽、ダンス、それからお酒
夏の三大拍子が勢ぞろいした最高で最幸の楽園

「Electric Island」
今年で4年目を迎えたこのイベント
短いトロントの夏を最大限に楽しもうとする
夏好きによる、夏好きのための最大のイベント

トロント、イスラエル、ブラジル、ベルリン
世界各国から集結したDJアーティストたちが操るクラブミュージックに
MJによる映像パフォーマンスも合わさった。
音と光の魔術に操られた観客たちはみな
酔いに火照った体を思い思いに動かし
リズムに合わせてダンスをする

自然の中で演出される、エレクトリカル・パフォーマンス。
相容れないような二者が交わり
そこには至妙な化学反応が起こっていた

やがて日没、次第に辺りは宵闇に包まれる
それに反比例するかのように
ステージの盛り上がりは一層熱気を増していく

永遠なんて存在しない
この夏も過ぎ、じきトロントには厳しい冬がやってくる
だから、そう
この夏、この瞬間を
心が、魂が許す限り楽しもう

トロントアイランドを覆う満点の星空の下で
カーニバルは鎮まらず
音楽とダンスは船に乗せられ
ダウンタウン、次の会場へと運ばれていく

Toronto’s favourite summer concert + picnic series conquered rainy weather warnings as the sun bucked up and came out for another brilliant instalment of Electric Island this past Canada Day. The music brought impeccable vibes to the island as a sea of red and white manifested across the grass, in celebration of Canada’s birthday. Honey Dijon’s heavy drops and building basslines swelled the crowd as people danced with beaming smiles. Apollonia played a fresh, unique set with building synth leads which compelled the audience, while maintaining impeccable flow between all three members. Tale Of Us delivered a beautiful techno symphony and Marcel Dettmann b2b Ben Klock brought Berghain techno to the island to close out the day.

Next up, The Civic Holiday long weekends rounds up a nice concoction of deep grooves and permitting techno from all around the world. Toronto native and No.19 co-founder Nitin makes his annual appearance this Civic Holiday delivering his unique deep tech. Berlin’s bright and wacky techno duo Andhim make their Electric Island debut- and you do NOT want to miss this. Israeli techno visionary Guy Gerber and Rumors lead-man, returns for another magical music experience on Toronto’s Island. Brazil’s most refined electronic music producer Gui Boratto also experiences his first Electric Island, and is without a doubt the most anticipated artist to play this summer. Lastly, one of electronic music’s most notable players for unleashing musical nostalgia and infinite beauty, Berlin’s own Paul Kalkbrenner plays a live set.
