Monster Energy's all-vinyl 7 Inches of Pleasure Tour returns to Calgary

Dec 19 2017, 11:09 am

The vinyl revival is as real as ever, with retailers like HMV and Amazon reporting turntables and record players as their best 2015 holiday sellers.

For the fourth year in a row, Monster Energy has assembled five of North America’s finest vinyl crusaders to pack up their crates and in the road to spread good sounds to party people across the country for yet another edition of the 7 Inches of Pleasure Tour.

Four of Canada’s top DJs — Mat The Alien (Whistler), Vinyl Ritchie (Vancouver), DJ Pump (Calgary), and DJ Illo (Ottawa) — will be joined on this pilgrimage by none other than the legendary DJ Scratch from famed hip hop group EPMD.

They’ll be bringing decades of party-rocking experience on a ten-city tour of Canada’s West, seamlessly blending genres from hip hop and R&B, to funk and soul, to electronic and dubstep, to punk and even heavy metal for our listening and dancing pleasure.

From long-time vinyl lovers to new recruits in the vinyl revival, the Monster Energy 7 Inches of Pleasure Tour is sure to satisfy.
