1986, Peter and Tyrone were playing at local hotspots
like the Surf Club and Cassanovas. But it wasn't long until they
met up with their soon-to-be partner - Shams, and played
their first afterhours together at 110 Spadina. This success was
soon followed by many dance-until-dawn parties at such infamous
venues as 1087, Abel, 215 Victoria, and 318 Richmond. Having played
host to such visionaries as Robert Owens, Ten City,
Frankie Knuckles and Tony Humphries, the trio were
fast becoming innovators in the underground house scene. By 1991,
the stage was set for the opening of the legendary "Thundergroove
Sundays" at the Oz, which introduced some of the greatest
international talent for the first time in Toronto. People like
DJ Disciple, Roger Sanchez, David Morales,
Cajmere and Todd Terry all were hosted by residents
Peter, Tyrone and Shams. In 1993, Shams started "Jinxx Records",
and soon after Peter and Tyrone launched "83 West Records".
With all this success the trio soon parted ways with Peter and
Tyrone busy in the recording studio and DJ'ing the European club
circuit (including Ministry of Sound, Hard Times, Bar Rumba, Satellite
and The Hub), and Shams focusing on his label which has released
music by Jacksoul, Ivana Santilli, DJ Sneak,
M1, Kenny Glasgow and others. It is a great honour
to bring them back together for one night to commemorate their
legendary contribution to the Toronto house scene.
Also rockin' the spot will be Blueprint and Moreno!
