Toronto's prodigal son of Drum & Bass returns to his home turf for one explosive night. Since being handpicked by Andy C to sign exclusively to Ram Records in 2012, Rene has been on a whirlwind adventure of nonstop touring and releasing his now signature take on Drum & Bass at break neck speed.
His lighting fast rise to the top was solidified when his track «The Calling» feat Ivy Mairi entered into the top 40 UK Dance chart following a coveted placement on BBC Radio 1's A playlist. A crowning achievement for Rene and the genre as a whole, especially given the tracks uncompromising underground feel.
Rene is currently deep into production of his third full length album slated for release on the legendary imprint, with a grip of high profile remixes for Diplo, DJ Fresh and Craig David as well as an arsenal of track testing dubplates in his sets all causing a frenzy on the internet. Alongside balancing a heavy touring schedule that sees him appearing main stage this year at some of the worlds premier festivals including Exit Festival, Imagination, Let It Roll, Glastonbury, EDC and Download. Continuing the momentum after being hand picked by Liam Howlett to serve as the supporting DJ for The Prodigy on their sold out 2015 arena tour.
2017 has also seen Rene gracing the cover of Future Music Magazine with a four page article and an hour and a half video tutorial about the production process and concept behind Richter Scale. The first piece of music ever to be registered on the Richter Scale by a Seismologist that was premiered last summer on the main stage of Digital Dreams Festival in Toronto.
On May 26th Rene LaVice and Friends makes an exclusive 2017 appearance at a brand new venue, The Sound X Change, located in the heart of China town. This time, RLV&F returns with a fresh line up of some of the hottest producers and DJs in the Toronto Drum and Bass scene, for a night hosted by MC Caddy Cad, a legend in the Canadian scene and integral voice of the city.
