With a reputation for high-energy live shows, Sweatshop Union is a powerful antidote for vacant pop-rap. What began as a collective of Vancouver-based artists pooling resources to release an album transformed into a group that performs hip hop in its old-school form, with intelligent lyrics delivered by multiple MCs over simple-yet-inventive beats. With numerous awards and a busy tour schedule performing with groups like The Black Eyed Peas, Sweatshop Union remains driven to deliver a deeper, more meaningful sound to the masses.

DJ Timothy Wisdom is the most sought-after powerhouse behind Vancouver’s exploding intentional dance community. With appearances at some of today's largest festivals, Timothy’s music unifies, intensifies, uplifts and penetrates the senses.
