LEGACY: THE TRIBE MAGAZINE PHOTO EXHIBIT
Witness the birth of electronic music in Canada. Rare digitized film, slides and artifacts from tribe magazine will take you deep into raves, warehouse parties and events from 1993 and beyond.
This is Mandy, who I met at a party in Toronto during the late summer of 1998, in that building where the old Gasworks used to be on Yonge Street. The image comes from a shoot we did in the studio, and it completely captures Mandy’s big smile energy. This photo would have been a cover, but I was unable to adjust the color sufficiently so it would print well on newsprint, which was the paper stock TRIBE MAGAZINE used for covers that particular year. We used another photo of Mandy on the cover instead.

An unfinished warehouse. turntables, a mixer, speakers and some carefully selected tracks, trainspotters, dust, 10 inch singles, hardness, lightness, deepness = dancing. Ken payed house and techno under his own name, and hardcore and jungle tracks under the DJ Viper moniker.
