What’s up, everyone?
I checked out the Scientists of Sound twice this weekend, and they put off a great show both nights despite the sparse number of attendees at both events. These guys have become one of my favourite acts to watch live in St. John’s lately. I’ve found that all the hyped up shows amount to nothing more than hype recently and I find that our little electronic music scene often opts for hype at the cost of musical brilliance. Increasingly my preferred sounds are being manufactured in Europe and these artists would obviously cost more to book because of heightened travel expenses… This led me to think, who are my favourite Canadian producers? And, to our readers in St. John’s and even else where, who are your favourite Canadian producers? Who would you like to see in St. John’s?
Here’s my short list:
Art Department- Toronto
Art Department and Seth Troxler- Living the Life
Art Department- All Mine
James Teej/My Favourite Robot- Toronto/Montreal
Alex Kaddour & Isaac Silva- Luxemburgo (James Teej Remix)
My Favourite Robot- Forest Fires
Jacques Greene- Montreal
Radiohead- Lotus Flower (Jacques Greene Remix)
Jacques Greene- Another Girl
Mix Chopin- Toronto
Junior Jack- Thrill Me (Mix Chopin Remix)
Mix Chopin- Tight
Azari & III- Toronto
Azari & III- Manic
Azari & III- Into the Night (Prince Language Remix)
and although the Scientists of Sound aren’t musch like the rest of this music they did get me thinking about this whole Canadian thing… So here’s some free music from them… WAV files at that!
