"All the sweat, dirt and sexiness real funk deserves to have." - Motherfunk

Where tropical monsoons meet the cobbled streets of Northern hemispherical cities… from Londontown to Gastown… AMALIA MAMALIA was conjured where opposites collide… First introduced to the funk world by Dam-Funk in 2011. ‘The First Lady of Modern Funk” (KPFK Radio Los Angeles)… Her debut “Art Slave” and involvement with Opolopo’s “Voltage Controlled Feelings” on Tokyo Dawn Records had her circulating the globe from SF’s Sweater Funk to Kyoto Jazz Massive’s Room… Best known for her work with such music visionaries as Onra, Reggie B, Atjazz, Domu, AD Bourke, Blaktroniks, Portformat, Boddhi Satva, B.Bravo & Afronaut of Bugz in the Attic.. A force of nature… Breathe in AMALIA.


Bles-sed got her start collecting and spinning vinyl in Vancouver back in 2002 and quickly became one of the pre-eminent R&B, hip-hop, funk/soul DJs in city. Since then, she's criss-crossed the country bringing her sound across Canada and now makes Montreal her home.

Over the span of her career she’s been blessed to share the stage with notable artists such as Estelle, Raphael Saadiq, Slum Village, Tony! Toni! Toné! SWV, Ginuwine, Prince Paul, Skeme Richards, Stretch Armstrong, Cosmo Baker, Vinroc, Starting From Scratch and Maseo of De La Soul. Since moving to Montreal, she was invited to share her love of boogie and funk on Walla-P's Voyage Funktastique radio show and rocked the crowd at the renowned Chocolate Jungle 90’s parties. Most recently she brought the Cuffin’ All Thangs R&B Party to Montreal.


Residing in Toronto, Canada, this East Coast native is a heavy hitter on the DJ scene. Her credentials read like a laundry list of formal accomplishments. The former manager of Canada’s number-one record store, Beatstreet Records, and former host and creative director of Vancouver-based Grounded TV; the promoter and founder of Jane Blaze Productions; formerly known as DJ She, battling as Canada’s first female DJ to compete in the worldwide Red Bull Thre3Style competition.

She has been chalked up alongside some of the world’s most credible DJs and artists, including Stretch Armstrong, Cut Chemist, DJ Ayers, Kool DJ Red Alert, Queen Latifah, Lauryn Hill, Sharon Jones and Montell Jordan, while her corporate client list is a mile long with brands like Armani, H&M, Artizia, Nike and Red Bull.

Hitting all the crucial erogenous zones from funk to disco and soul to hip-hop, Jane Blaze crosses the genres of West Coast and Chicago House to create her own brand of mid-tempo madness. She spins driving, dense mixes that capture your attention from the first beat.


Se'lah (Say-La) Genesis is a Canadian Poet, singer, emcee, creator and curator currently residing in Montreal, Quebec via Toronto, Ontario.

She coins her musical sound and style as Urban Universal.

It’s a mixture of hip-Hop, R&B, and freestyle with experimental sounds, drawing on a long list of musical influences from KRS ONE to Bjork. The list is long and varied.

“I am an Urban Universal artist. I do not like to categorize my genre to be truthful. But Urban Universal means I bring my core love of hip-hop and R&B and mix it with whatever I am feeling when I create. What comes out is dope and that’s all you need to know!

I’m an experience. A feeling. My style, my personality, my art, my music, is not a genre. It just is. Follow my journey and enjoy the colourful, thought provoking ride. Feel me”
