Joe Claussell DJ, producer, and founder of New York record label Spiritual Life Music returns to Toronto straight from New York's musically innovative club event "Body & SOUL"

Joe's approach to club music has impacted producers and clubs throughout world. Currently popular in progressive minded club music production is the fusion of world music with dance beats. Notably responsible for this new approach is Joe Claussell. With production and remixes for the likes of Cesaria Evora, Femi Kuti, Monday Michiru, Jephte Guillaume , Nitin Sawney , and Cassandra Wilson, his sound has imbued dance music with a more organic, ethnic feel, taking African and Latin influences on board and meshing them with elements of the Garage tradition and the true feeling of classic and contemporary house music.

Joe dares to produce and create music few have the courage to do. Music created for, by and about the soul. Explore this experimentation, in which the historical, physical, and spiritual elements guide us to a new level of awareness. It's difficult to label Joe's music as house, dance music or anything else. Its just good music. Listen...you may be surprised at how familiar this sound is, the sound of life.

Joe will be delivering pure soulful bliss to the Garage 416 dance floor revelers, his track selection is impeccable and his EQing is unrivalled. The last Spiritual Life party here in Toronto with Joe and Pevin Everett was one of last year's club highlights!

Garage 416 residents Jason Klaps, Alan Lo and Mike K of blueprint will also be rockin' the spot with their lively lovely blend of funky house vibes.

"My goal is to expose the role that music really plays in our lives." - Joe Claussell
