Reflektor, hailed as one of the brightest stars in Canada’s Drum & Bass scene, have been igniting the musical landscape since their formation in 2015. With an impressive discography spanning renowned labels like Shogun Audio, Symmetry Recordings, Technique Recordings, and 4NC¥ DarkMode, Reflektor has effortlessly distinguished themselves as artists with an unwavering commitment to pushing sonic boundaries.
What truly sets Reflektor apart is their innovative and original approach to music production. This fearless spirit has led to dynamic collaborations with some of North America’s finest talents, including the likes of Dave Owen and Mat the Alien, as well as the vocal powerhouses Anastasia and Leo Wood. These partnerships have resulted in a musical fusion that is nothing short of spectacular.
Reflektor’s performances are nothing short of a sonic journey, and their festival appearances at prestigious events such as Lightning in a Bottle, Shambhala, and Wicked Woods stand as a testament to their captivating stage presence. Beyond the festival circuit, the duo has left their mark with a multitude of club performances across Western Canada and the US West Coast.
What distinguishes Reflektor’s live performances is their unparalleled energy and varied selection of tracks. Their DJ sets are a whirlwind of beats and melodies, showcasing their ability to seamlessly blend a vast array of tracks that keep the audience on their toes. This, coupled with their captivating stage presence, makes Reflektor a formidable force in the world of Drum & Bass.
In a world where musical boundaries are constantly pushed, Reflektor has emerged as a shining beacon of creativity and talent. Their dedication to crafting immersive and electrifying experiences through their music ensures that their journey in the Drum & Bass realm is one that continues to captivate audiences around the globe.
Reflektor are now joining our Renegade Riddims series with their second mix. They initially joined us approximately 4 years ago, and since then, a lot has changed in terms of technology and sound. It’s great to have an update on their progress! (check out their 1st mix here)
Their new mix features music from the likes of themselves, Break, Riya & Collette Warren, BCee, Kasra, SOLAH, Rockwell, DJ Marky and loads more!

Sum up this mix in 10 words…
Lush, soulful, and melodic, a departure from Reflektor’s usual heat.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Biased, but our favourite track in the mix is our recently finished track, ‘Chugga’, which drops on Grand Theft Audio in December.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Energy! Pushing over 60 tracks in just over an hour, this one is a smooth roller coaster of vibes.
Tell us about your next EP?
We have a two track collaboration with a good friend, Twofour. They’re hard hitting, technical, and energetic. We’ll be releasing them within the next few months on Canadian based, ‘Westcove Recordings’, in support of our two friends who recently launched the label. 2024 we have multiple UK releases slated so keep your ears peeled 😉
What have you got coming up?
We’re currently in the studio working with a new vocalist on a liquid track we’re quite excited about and are continuing to push our diversity in our productions. For the remainder of the year we’ll be making multiple club appearances across Canada and beginning to plan our summer for 2024.
When was the last time you actually raved?
We’re fortunate to have the top two North American festivals planted in Western Canada with both Shambhala (BC) and Bass Coast (BC) via DJ Mag. The festival scene here is strong and drum & bass is finally starting to grab more attention and have some serious presence. So we’ve been raving all summer!
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
