You’re definitely at the Wrongbar when it’s TIFF weekend in Toronto and the party you’re attending has no red carpet, no paparazzi, yet boasts an impeccably dressed crowd. Ed Banger Records and co. rolled into Toronto on September 11th for a “Hockey Squad” party at Wrongbar. Taking advantage of the 4a.m. last call, the line-up of DJs was long and impressive.

Starting the night was local DJ, Rynecologist and by 12:30 a.m. even with the rain, the line extended past Wrongbar with people vying to get in. Oh, and the price of upwards of $30 to get in wasn’t an abating factor either.

Next up was Toddla T and on his track “Where Mi Key Deh?” posted on MySpace it finishes with the line that describes him best: DJ from Sheffield that plays dance and rhythms. Toddla T’s rapid “digital dancehall” had everyone on the small dancefloor with people pushing through on the steps.

As we eagerly wait for Justice’s new release, we are treated to the rest of the Ed Banger elite. Ed Banger Records, founded by Pedro Winter, aka Busy P, has signed some of the most successful French DJs in the last several years. Sporting a winter hat with “Canada” on it, Busy P was joined by DJ Mehdi and SebastiAn for the travelling party and DJ sets.

The love affair with the French DJs in Toronto extended into Sunday night when they played a surprise DJ set at The Roosevelt Room for the exclusive afterparty for the Romain Gavras (director for Justice’s “Stress” and most recently M.I.A.’s “Born Free” music videos) film Notre Jour Viendre.
