The END at the World Ski & Snowboard Festival (WSSF) in Whistler, BC is the ultimate ski season sendoff. Taking place in the Whistler Conference Centre on Saturday, April 18, The END is an electrifying late-night dance party featuring lightshows, sensory overloading sound and an incredible line up of DJs. This year, The END at WSSF will be headlined by AutoErotique, ETC!ETC! and Torro Torro.
Originally hailing from Toronto, Canada, AutoErotique broke into the music scene in 2009 when they caught the attention of DJ/producer/label owner, Steve Aoki. Shortly after signing with Dim Mak Records, they made their mark on the dance music world with the release of their first official single, Gladiator. AutoErotique is defined by their eclectic and innovative sound, touching on everything from electro, tometal, techno, Dutch house, indie-rock, ska and everything in between.
In 2014, AutoErotique won the Much Music Dance Video of the Year Award for their masterpiece, Asphyxiation. They followed that up with Play It Again, which hit #1 on iTunes Dance and Feedback, a collaboration with long-time friends and colleagues Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike which climbed up the Beatport Top 10 chart. Shortly after, AutoErotique released Heat with Felix Cartal and Murda Dem, a festival favourite that gained massive support from Diplo, Steve Aoki, the Chainsmokers, Dillon Francis, DJ SNAKE, Mat Zo and many more.
ETC!ETC! is a Los Angeles, California native and born and raised producer. Initially attracted to electro house music for its big bass and fast-paced BPM, ETC!ETC! shifted his focus to moombahton in early 2011, commanding the attention of top-notch tastemakers from around the globe.
His eclectic mix of audio flavours has garnered him support from EDM leaders, including Wolfgang Garner, AC Slater, Congorock, 12th Planet X, Skrillex, Mstrkrft, Bro Safari and many others.
Originating from Toronto, Canada, Torro Torro is a recognized leader in the dance music genre and has crafted a distinctive electronic sound characterized by melding the best of big room, bass, house and urban genres.
Early on, Torro Torro made waves with their chart topping remixes, most notably Go Deep, which has become a quintessential hit. Torro Torro quickly changed the perception of what a remix is, emphasizing creative sound design and composition to produce something new while reiterating the strengths of the original song.
