With April’s showers now behind us, Toronto’s essential underground venue, CODA, is blooming with a garden of May talent. And this month, in particular, is rooted in a variety of electronic music genres.

Leading into May, CODA gives Toronto exactly what they’re asking for with The Kids Want Techno. On May 5, this city-based showcase jumps into its sixth edition with Stereo Montreal’s resident DJ, Ostrich. Grab tickets here.

The following evening on May 6, Dennis Ferrer weaves together afro-house, tech-soul, and deep electro. Founder of NYC’s mega-successful label, Objektivity, Ferrer has an ear for great vocal tracks, the result of which is a number of fiery house records. Not to mention, Ferrer will be supported by one of our personal favourite local acts – City Kid Soul, along with the notorious Richard Brooks. Grab tickets here.
