Five years ago, Monster Energy rounded up a select group of DJs to celebrate the format of vinyl.

With notable artists like the legendary DJ Scratch (New York), Vinyl Ritchie (Vancouver), and Mat The Alien (Vancouver Island) in tow, the 7 Inches Of Pleasure Winter Tour — dubbed as a “history lesson disguised as an epic dance party” — would become hugely successful, touring through over 20 different cities across the nation and paying tribute to those who helped vinyl to become a pillar of DJ culture.

This month, the tour makes its return to Western Canada, marking the five-year milestone with Grammy Award-winning Brooklyn producer Kenny Dope performing at two BC stops — Vancouver and Whistler. Dope will be joining DJ Scratch, Vinyl Ritchie, Mat The Alien, DJ Illo (Ottawa), and DJ Pump (Calgary) in spinning a genre-blend of everything from hip-hop and funk to punk and heavy metal while honouring the history of the sound format.
