YOU PLUS ONE
House and Techno Music Label
You Plus One is Siavash's brain child. Conceived from the idea to unite and promote our Northwest electronic music scene, You Plus One emerged originally as a successful attempt to keep the house and techno scene alive locally in Vancouver, Canada. Since 2011, it has carved a name for itself by throwing legendary events for music lovers, jump-starting many careers in the industry, lending + creating the sound and image for different venues, supporting and mentoring local artists, and building connections with the greater international community. It has now evolved into a music label that has already garnished support from top industry professionals even in its infancy. YPO's goal is to guide talent, expose new people to the beautiful, artistic, and underground world of house and techno, and ultimately help represent Canada within the global underground scene.
