It's time to check the freezing temperatures at the door and heat the hell up with The Experiment, a multi-act party experience at both The Marquee and The Seahorse on Friday night. Presented by Birchwood Entertainment, The Experiment promises a two-storey full-sensory experience from visual art installations by Wasako AV to appearances from Halifax Circus members, with the city's best body-moving music.

The Experiment has covered all the basses with performances by Halifax reggae-poppers Dub Kartel and full-band EDM party stars Neon Dreams, who will be complemented by chill-wavers Glory Glory and lo-fi rocker Harley Alexander. The Experiment will also feature dance sets by Bleu Nuit and The Jam's DJ T-Woo, DJ Loukas Stilldrunk and DJ Okay TK and local lion DJ Goldilocks (Cat Abreu).

"The show is sounding crazy, isn't it?" says Abreu, a co-founder of the all-female DJ collective Ladies' Beverage Room. "I like to put together sets that will get into your hips and groove you." Abreu, who opened for LE1F last year and performed at The Halifax Pop Explosion, has crafted a special playlist of her self-described "pelvic floor jams" for The Experiment. "My sets are composed of a lot of different kinds of music with a solid backbone of house and hip hop," she says, adding that she prowls blogs, playlists, Soundclouds and Tumblrs in search of the hottest beats.

"I like to create inclusive, welcoming and raucous spaces. Meaty bass and female swagger always catch my ear, but generally it's flow and surprise that gets me going," she says. "I want people to move so I'll play what people want to move to." Here's your chance to get sweaty. You can thank DJ Goldilocks later.
