Mythril, a multi-instrumentalist and visionary artist from Vancouver BC, who has been mixing and making music for over 2 decades, is known for his inspirational musical vision throughout the Pacific Northwest. Performing at many underground gatherings and international festivals, he has brought cutting edge music to dancefloors across North America. From high-powered launches to graceful landings - progressive psy & neo full-on, downtempo, breaks and dub flavour his musical journeys.

Mithril is the mythical elvish alloy - impervious, light to wield, and majikal. It was made into enchanted armour and weapons by the elves of Middle Earth when they forged friendship with the dwarves of the mountains.
