Rapture Dominate – Leather & Military Party [Contest]


There will be kink and fetish demonstrations all night long at Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom on Saturday, July 30, for the Rapture Dominate – Leather & Military Party heats up.  DJ Craig Gaibler and DJ Marcus Purnell will keep the dance floor alive late into the night.

Recently to Vancouver’s club scene, DJ Marcus Purnell is excited to take the stage with his tribal and vocal skills that have had dance floors hopping. His sound of rolling progressive-house and tribal rhythms can make heads turn and asses shake. No stranger to the club scene, Marcus has played at notable clubs and pride events in San Francisco, Miami, Orlando, and Honolulu.

Craig Gaibler has been passionate about music his entire life. Early in college, in the warehouse raves of Seattle, he discovered electronic music. After coming out of the closet and meeting local Seattle DJs, Craig was eager to learn the craft of mixing. Today, DJ Craig Gaibler calls San Fran home.

Craig’s philosophy around DJing centers on three distinct desires:

1) to create a journey that dares anyone to leave the dance floor

2) to play beautiful, fun, uplifting dance music

3) to introduce creative and interesting records, artists and remixes that help define his unique, luscious sound
