CTRL ROOM is a cultural incubator with a focus on cultivating DJ’ing and Electronic Music Arts. Based out of The Junction in West Toronto, CTRL ROOM has, since it’s conception, hosted over 800 local DJs, producers and live musicians (both emerging and established). Offering them the opportunity to further raise their profile and hone their skills through community and artist-fellowship, CTRL ROOM helps emerging talent to bridge the gap from a local to global musical presence and following.

So much more than a networking/ community hub, this fully-equipped studio space (rigged for 4K-video streaming and podcast production) is the ultimate platform for artists to showcase their skills and refine their musical practice. Whether new to ‘the local scene’ or a long-time veteran of the global electronic music community, everyone plays their part in keeping music culture alive in the CTRL ROOM.

As part of our annual charity fundraiser, we’ve teamed up with some of the fiercest talent around to bring you Marathon4 – Charity of Sistering, local women’s outreach, November 10, at CTRL ROOM studio.

Like the electronic music equivalent of a long-distance charity marathon, artists and enthusiasts will participate in a 42-hour long session of continuous performances and dancing to raise funds (in equal parts) for the continued operations of CTRL ROOM and

Sistering: a local women’s organization that offers practical and emotional support through programs which enable them to take greater control over their lives.

This event will be live broadcasted here @ http://ctrlroom.ca/, so for those of you who can’t join us in person, please tune in online, comment on all your favourite performances, and donate what you can to support the continued operations of these two honourable organizations.
