Breakfast At Floyd’s: SkiiTour on Tour 2016
The first time I ever saw SkiiTour was at a local club in Victoria, British Columbia and I had no idea what I was in for. I found out pretty quickly that I wasn’t up to par on the dress code as I looked around the room and saw brightly dressed dancers in ’80s ski attire. How unfortunate for me because I love costumes!
These guys really know how to bring the bass; from funky house to speed garage and drum and bass, you can find all of my favorite types of music played during one of SkiiTour’s sets. Another bonus? If you check out their SoundCloud you’ll find some super chill tracks complete with Chet Faker remixes, sexy female vocals and hip-hop beats. My current favorite is Chairlift Chillin Vol 7.
In 2015, SkiiTour became legendary after they packed the Amphitheater for the third straight year at Shambhala Music Festival. Snow machines emitted white flakes over the crowd as they danced and bounced in the sandy pit. On stage, half-naked dancers covered themselves in white paint while others swung gracefully from the sky. Even snowballs were thrown from backstage into the audience to cool off festival attendees. After this unreal performance, I knew I had to meet them in person.
After a show at Sugar Nightclub in Victoria, BC – put on by Reliable Productions – I was lucky enough to meet up with Dave and Tim of SkiiTour for some brunch and hair of a dog. We laughed, discussed controversial issues, and shared our deepest and darkest secrets (sort of). Check out my interview with these two fine lads below.
