The reason I like Montreal so much is because the residents mostly don't give a shit about what people think about them. It's apparent in their fashion. In their food and dietery traditions. And in their music.
Fardoche is a singular Montreal man that presents his music in the rawest of all states. A true testament to the ever established bedroom producer, "his sound is not clean as electro house nor nasty as French crunchy electro". He is the perfect sweet medium between the two extremes. Sure you may hear a faulty bleep or a slowed down boop here and there but the spirit that is bursting out of this Shwatrz eating tabernac is carried through in the warped and beautiful way he intends it too.
A few songs are crunchy and a few songs are dreamy. Just the way I like it.
So I'm playing at CiRCA again this Friday (tomorrow) If you squint you can see my name there, Fawn Big Canoe. My second time in the venue and having a bigger hand in the deal than last time, I decided to invite my friend Matt (Hatchmatik).
Chicago will be in the house that night too as we feature The Beat Freakers. Two extremely talented guys, will be destroying the turntables as usual. These guys are such purists, word has it they've JUST decided to make the leap to Serato. All the best boys.
Seeing as how I'll be playing the upstairs and seeing as how we had the room at capacity + last time, I've been combing through what seems like trillions of mp3s. Came across a tune by SymbolOne that brought me back to when I would spend hours in the record shops, my feet hurting from standing, my back aching and ears throbbing, then suddenly finding that one "OH!" record.
