Through their mutual love of House Music and their fascination with its roots, emerging producer Ashton Adams and world-renowned DJ / artist 4KORNERS have come to be collectively known as 401 WST, named after the provincial highway that connects their home towns of Cambridge and Toronto respectively.
Citing the origins of House Music as their inspiration, 401 WST has a deep love for the unique, innovative, and most of all, pure nature of the music and the Black DJ / producers who started it all. Being shut out of the mainstream due to racism, classism & homophobia, the forefathers created their own spaces and sounds, birthing an entire movement in the process. It was about the people, the music and how it made you feel. This is the energy that 401 WST are conductors of. By fusing the essence of what was with the technology of what is, they are making real House Music for all who come to lose themselves in it. 401 WST is here to take it back!
Their 2020 three song debut EP "OUR HOUSE" was well received internationally, garnering press coverage in North and South America, Europe and Asia as well as solid playlist support on Spotify and Apple Music. 401 WST is currently gearing up for the release of their follow-up project "OUR HOUSE II" due November 2021.
