Big Gigantic – All Of Me (Feat. Logic & Rozes)

Big Gigantic are basically what got me into the funk/electronic hybrid genre to begin with. Rocking a solid setup of saxophone, electronics and live drums, the duo have been dominating the North American festi scene and other cornerstone venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre for years now, carving their niche into a scene of blown out progressive house producers and the like.

Their unique and positive vibe is another aspect of the BG family that sets them apart. Boasting a large audience of community oriented music-lovers, the duo promote togetherness and enjoyment through live music and friendship. I find this very interesting as most electronic music scenes are very exclusive and almost alienating, in a way.

The new single features one of my favourite MC’s Logic. The title of the single is All of Me, and I highly recommend checking it out – slightly more of a chill vibe than their most recent releases, the new joint touches base on some RnB / HipHop vibes with bars-o-plenty, absolutely worth the 5-second click over to their Soundcloud page to check it out!

Daft Punk – Doing It Right (k?d Remix)

K?d is one of those cross disciplined artists who I look up to for multiple reasons. Not only does he make some of the catchiest rhythms in electronic music that I’ve stumbled upon in recent discovery sessions. Aside from producing this music, he’s also an amazing illustrator, as showcased in the graphic identity of this project. A must see effort, all in all.

Going in on the infectiously memorable Daft Punk classic, Doin It Right, K?D puts a spin somewhere in between Porter Robinson and Wheathin – the tune is begging to be fucked with by all.

Cavalier is one of those producers that do whatever the fuck they want, don’t follow trends in festival circuits and pop meta, but most importantly, consistently amaze and impress their dedicated fans with unique and boundary pushing beats that always leave room for discussion.

With pop sensibilities over-riding underground hip-hop undertones, this young producer has already made waves in the electronic and hip-hop communities alike. I’m very excited to see where his career takes him.


TuesDaze: A Playlist

Tuesday, yet again. After another classic weekend of debauchery, our minds are torn as to whether we should keep the energy going, or take some time to chill out. Music seems to be the only thing that can serve both my need for tranquility but also the fuel to carry on. I’ve compiled a short list of tracks that will help to ease the pain of existence (jk).

As always, feel free to tweet us out if you have any tracks that deserve our attention!


Filthy – Eagle Child

This completely original single was written, produced and performed by Eagle Child (finches&sparrows) of Vancouver, BC. Eagle Child is Christian W. Abt, a Cree/Canadian Producer that hails from Maskwacis, Alberta.

For an even better listening experience, it helps to know the story behind this piece. Eagle Child describes the track as being about a hardcore partier who involuntarily becomes enlightened during a drug trip, forcing him to see himself and the reality around him for what it really is, “filthy”. He goes into a downward spiral of depression, eventually seeking help (illustrated in the rap verses), within which he is critically analyzing himself and the reasoning behind his seemingly thoughtless behavior. He comes to terms with it in the end, accepting that him being a mindless sensation seeker and the filth all around him is just how he is inevitably going to live out — “it doesn’t matter if we matter… we like it filthy.”

Keep an eye on Eagle Child’s Soundcloud to stay up-to-date on future releases and his upcoming album, “Unhealthy”.

Steph’s Picks

Natasha Kmeto – Prideless (Ryan Wells Remix)

Local fav Ryan Well’s released this killer remix of Natasha Kmeto’s Prideless as part of the Bass Coast Remix Contest. It is by far my favourite entry so far and a track that has been on repeat on my iPod.

Moon Boots – C.Y.S.

French Express artist Moon Boots has been consistently putting out quality tracks over the past few years and his latest is no exception. CYS is a dreamy number that gives me that floaty, carefree feeling when i’m listening. It’s definitely putting me in the mood for summer with its light, fluffy and feel good vibes.

Droog Guest Mix for John Digweed

I’ve been really diggin’ this mix from Droog for the past month or so. Lately I just can’t seem to get enough of the deep, dark vibes. This mix has accompanied me on my journey to work and has helped set the mood for a long night of serving.

Nick’s Picks

Often us bloggers, like DJ’s I’m sure as well, find ourselves on a constant hunt for what’s fresh and new. Lately I’ve been taking a step back however, and peeking into the past library’s of newly discovered artists. Thanks to the many local groups such as IntimateUnderGYou Plus OneGinger62 & Timbre bringing through amazing international talent, I’ve discovered some of my current favourite tracks from DJ TennisTom TragoNora En Pure & Kygo all featured below. 

Metronomy – She Wants (Tennis Edit)

Mimi’s Picks


Seattle’s Kid Smpl delivers a ream worth of intricate, textured layers of contemplative sadness through all his tracks, “Ja” being no exception. Heady, corrosive, yet managing to maintain elegance, ‘noise’ has never been more beautiful. Be sure to visit SKMB on May 11 to catch our interview with Kid Smpl and to stream his EP, Silo Tear.

Montreal’s trio, Seoul, offers crisp, ethereal, salt-of-the-earth freshness, neutralizing any toxicity your ears may have suffered from all that shitty top 40s we’re all subjected to while waiting in line at the store.

Tits and ass, lights and bling – this is your quintessential getting-ready-for-summer-parties tune. Atlanta’s A.ware (from hip hop duo Mach Five) spells the equation of house + rap = parting legs in sundresses.

Sound Strider – Intrepid Travels EP

Who doesn’t want to rave it up at a 30 000 person Freetekno party at a refurbished castle in the Loire Valley? If ‘reconnecting with your transcendental roots’ sounds like one hell of a fun time to you, then perhaps one of Sound Strider’s French techno festivals is in order. Until then, you’ll have to settle for this glitchy, IDM-influenced EP which was inspired by the psychedelic culture depicted in Tom Wolfe’s The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test. Stream it here on Soundcloud, and you can download for free or by donation as well.

Find Sound Strider on Bandcamp and Twitter.

Michael Red – Sunday Morning Shambhala 2012 Living Room mix


For my first post with FutureClassics, here is a mix as appropriate for pre-raving as a post-party wind down. This Shambhala 2012 mix from Vancouver veteran Michael Red is a mellow and relaxing favorite I find myself listening to again and again – for any lovers of the annual BC music fest, it’s sure to bring up fond memories of the beach stage and greeting the hazy morning sunrise, but it’s equally as good for a chilled-out evening at home by yourself. Includes such well-known faves as James Blake and Frank Ocean, as well as an Andy Dixon remix of the soulful vocals of Vancouver’s own Evy Jane. Queue it up and drift away into dreamland.
