Blueprint - Jason Klaps, Alan Lo, Mike K. (l to r)

Officially formed in 1996, the Blueprint DJ collective began with a series of parties to promote their brand of funky and innovative underground music. The collective consists of three DJs: Jason Klaps, Mike K, and Alan Lo who subscribe to this musical vision of non-conformity. Since the inception of Blueprint, their sound has traveled to their various residencies throughout the Toronto music scene where they attempt to unleash the raw and emotional power of music on the masses. With the creation of the internationally respected party Garage416, the trio has graced the decks with some of house music’s greatest DJ icons and musical visionaries. Playing with DJs like "Little Louie" Vega, Joe Claussell, Tony Humphries, François K., the Basement Boys, Mateo & Matos, and many others the Blueprint crew have had a chance to jam with the world’s best DJs. Other projects have led to playing with such musical innovators as Justin Harris (Music For Freaks), Gilles Peterson, S.O.U.L., DJ Spinna, A Guy Called Gerald and more. While not on the turntables, the Blueprint crew is actively working to progress their next challenge – production. With an early co-production with Paul Jacobs A.K.A. SoulGrabber on the respected label Aquarius Recordings the future release of their musical vision is imminent.

Rietstap’s Armorial Général

In Rietstap’s Armorial Général vinden we een familiewapen terug van de familie Claps en van de familie Fortis de Claps.  Er kan tot op heden met deze wapenschilden geen enkel verband gelegd worden met onze familie Klaps. Een foto van het wapenschild Claps zal later nog gepubliceerd worden.

The Rietstap’s Armorial Général is a monumental work, containing descriptions, or blazons, of the coats-of-arms of over 130,000 European families, alphabetically arranged and accurately described. It was compiled in the late 19th century by Johan Baptiste Rietstap from the Netherlands. In addition to a full description of the arms, many entries identify the nationality of the arms bearer, his title, and the date the title was conferred. Although far from complete and not free from errors, the Armorial is over all reliable.

Sous un ciel noir, sillonné d'éclairs, un château de deux tours, adextré d'un avant-mur d'argent, derrière lequel s'élève une rangée de peupliers de sinople, le tout soutenu d'une terrasse au naturel.

Fortis de Claps
D'azur, au lion d'or, adextré d'une palme du même.
