[Friday.April.20. 2018]: STASIS III
Helix Music presents our third installment of "STASIS" featuring one of our all time favourite duo's DRUNKEN KONG（OFFICIAL）(Tronic/Terminal M/Transit/Session Womb). The evening will be kicked off with support from our newest resident MEI at City At Night.
Stasis is a state of equilibrium or balance. Our thought process behind the nomenclature is that we want everyone to feel balanced or in a state of inner peace when they come to our events. The main goal for our events is to create a vibe and atmosphere in which people from various demographics can come together and dance in perfect harmony without any negativity or animosity. A biological ecosystem has several organisms living together and pursuing common goals such as adaptation, growth and evolution. Conversely, the organisms that are resistant to change, or are poor at adapting fail and become extinct. This is where we can draw stark parallels in our music scene. Like a biological ecosystem, we firmly believe that Ottawa’s underground scene is a musical ecosystem. It requires a concerted effort from everyone (companies and supporters), to throw quality events, support events as quality clientele and to think progressively to establish prosperity in our music ecosystem. Being vindictive and predatory is counter-productive to the potential growth of Ottawa’s underground music scene. We truly believe that great strides have been made in the city over the last few years. We Helix Music, believe we can provide another cog to the wheel of success in Ottawa’s underground music culture. This is the foundation of our company and our events alike. It is all about the love of music. Music is what we are for and we want to see positive growth from Ottawa’s underground scene as a whole. STASIS: Find Your Balance
