Scouring the cloud for exciting new talent yields some of the best listening. Australian talent is the pay dirt. Having had the good fortune of an introduction to Heizen, a strong newcomer to every possible Tech variation has been tremendous. The name will be one appearing with much more frequency in the coming year, this is yet another mix / artist FC is proud to present to you early on.

One of Q-Tips more timeless works. The drums is Kohlenberg. Stint has been roaming around the scene / production game for number of years at this point, 2014 is being called out as his breakthrough year. The music game could use another Vancouver connect all up on it. This remix is offered as only a 48 hour download, kind of a tease if your a sleeper.
‘After Midnight‘ had three players, Ekali (who has had mention already today), vocalist VZNS, and The Oneiroscopist, who will no longer be known by this name. A short week ago the change was made in moniker to Jade Statues. To kick things off in a more memorable way than a mere status update, Jade Statues offers a new flip.
Vancouver’s own Ekali has carved out a deep corner of the prolific for himself. Mix after mix after mix for great names with even greater tracks. This creative immersion has only been further deepened with the announcement of a Said The Whale Remixes EP, all tracks of which are by, you guessed it, Said The Whale band member Ekali. ‘Safe To Say’ is surely just the tip of the iceberg. Full release available April 22nd.
Fresh from the 1080p Collection of Vancouver BC is a free house feeler ahead of the ‘Club Amniotics’ release, by MCFERRDOG. Expect the release out on cassette and digitally April 22nd.
Liven up your Sunday with Lenny K and the Vancouverite turned Montrealer + half of Potato Head People. The download is on the free.
Foals singer turned solo producer on the remix, originally premiered on Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1. The man has lead quite an interesting career, with not just indie rock, but also a handful of TV appearances. There is no official Soundcloud in place for the project but there may yet be more announcements to come on the solo endeavour.

Cross genre pollination goes so far, when it’s done right obviously, but also when it’s equal parts experimental / playful. Paces ‘Can’t Touch Me’ for instance. Trace amounts of Trap, Juke, Tropical, and Female Vocalist are all present. The result being one that DIE HIGH RECORDS out of Perth is no doubt proud to be representing.
REALLY wish this could be shared as a freebie to you all. Italian produced Carnival anthem if you will, that’s received support from the likes of Fatboy Slim, Bob Sinclar and even Nervo. Release is set on the fifteenth of this month exclusively on Beatport by d:vision. So, you know, watch for that.
How about a Dilla Style beat to chill down to this fine eve? How about one from yet another Vancouver producer? One you may not have heard of just yet. T Λ I L S is the moniker of one Miles Prower. He’s only two uploads for you to get to know him through, but I think you’ll get along just fine. He’s got all the socials so you can show some love through a follow or two.
From Boston and DJ Homewrecker comes a new label, The MOB. A new bass music collective of course slated for numerous big moves. Stel Leo kicks the labels releases off with a Chop & Screw loaded with some very Blunt Sinatra x Trap horns for an all in all well rounded slow time jam.
#MixMonday is taken to it’s 30th volume with Vancouver Deep House all stars, Howl Sound. You may have seen them at Bass Coast 2013, Some Kind Of Music Party, or just in passing on the street. Just make a note of the next time your paths cross because the only way for this duo to go is up. They’ve honed a sound of their own that many an underground lover can lock and get lost into.
