Avery Bremner brings beats to the Three Lions as DJ Aversive Dec. 27.

DJ Aversive brings deep beats to Nakusp

Nakusp will be treated to some serious dancing music when DJ Aversive brings her set to the Three Lions Pub.

Not long from now, on Dec. 27 to be exact, Nakusp will be treated to some serious dancing music when DJ Aversive brings her set to the Three Lions Pub. It promises to be a night of funky to deep electronic dance music, free of charge.

Aversive, aka Avery Bremner, is proficient at more than just creating soundscapes from the beats of others. At 13 she was learning about ‘90s electronica, getting a foundation in Detroit techno from her brother. By the age of 17, she started looking into producing her own music. It was at college that she got serious about it, switching from fiddle to electronic music production.

Avery took up her DJ Aversive moniker two years ago, and thanks to luck and roommates, she was fortunate enough to DJ at the W2 media cafe in Vancouver.

“I was getting pretty dope gigs right away,” said Bremner over the phone from Vancouver.

The lucky streak continued, and thanks to another serendipitous chain of connections, her music made it to Mallabel in San Francisco who approached her about recording an EP. She signed on, and since September, Bremner’s been putting five to six hours a day into production. Nakuspians can look forward to hearing some Aversive originals in the mix on Dec. 27.

Aversive’s music is an eclectic and engaging mix of sounds that runs the gamut of neuro step, glitch hop and good old house music. It’s big, and the sound will move you.

Next up after the Nakusp gig is a break for the busy musician. Bremner is off to Guatemala for a couple of months, then she’ll be regrouping her forces and taking the next steps in her musical journey. Keep your eyes peeled: you might see her at some of the electronic music festivals around B.C. this summer.
