With the sound of rain, humid chords and vintage breaks, few tracks represent Vancouver like Flørist’s “Marine Drive.” It propelled its producer, Logan Sturrock, to the upper echelons of the city’s thriving scene, even though he was an important fixture there for years before that. As a DJ and a punter, Sturrock was a steady presence at the start of Vancouver’s afterhours boom. As a designer, he created the signature look—playful text and muted colours inspired by old rave artwork—of Mood Hut’s flyers. The charming aesthetic soon spread across the city and has since been imitated by promoters from Melbourne to London.
Thanks to “Marine Drive,” a record on World Building and a cheeky edit of “Show Me Love” on Pacific Rhythm, Sturrock is a well-known producer, but he’s also a respected and versatile DJ. He can combine feel-good disco and classic house, or he can go full-bore techno, throwing down trippy records you’ve never heard. His RA podcast is somewhere in between. Comprising tunes new and old—including tracks from Pet Shop Boys, obscure ’90s deep house and cuts from Laurent Garnier, Sterac and Aaron Carl—it’s a rough-and-tumble ride with the spontaneity of a peak-time club set.
