In case you missed it, Electric Youth released their newest just over a week ago. The duo from Ontario continuously hit all the right chords with me. This time they hooked me with Bronwyn’s sultry vocals and Austin’s ‘in your face’ electric-pop backdrop. Right Back To You is a jam everyone should have in their library. Stay tuned for news on maybe an upcoming album? I’m speculating but they have enough tracks to put something together on an album. For those interested, follow any real news here.

I’m not quite sure when this next track dropped, but Fare Soldi’s new remix to Duck Sauce’s Barbara Streisand is dope. I have been listening to it non-stop this past week. Soldi packs in a pretty aggressive re-work that takes to the original pretty well. For those who don’t know who these guys are, you should click here for more previews. They’re sick.
Fare Soldi is partying in Italy this coming month. Click here for those dates.
If you have not been introduced to them already… let me proudly introduce Meridene. They are an indie-pop foursome based out of Wisconsin who have been steadily working to increase their following after their debut album released in 2008 entitled You’re Not Pretty, Youre Worse.
The guitar rifts in our featured song Parade of Fools is something else and is off the sophomore full-length album Something Like Blood. Catchy, electric, and defiant, it’s one of those tracks that will hook you instantaneously.
If you were one of the thousands that enjoyed Two Door Cinema Club’s What You Know then you will surely like what follows below.
In a few hours, Thunderheist will be throwing down at the University of Ottawa’s Arts concert for 101 week. The show is free so get your ass to campus. Show starts at 7 PM.
In other news, unpacking the house is going pretty slow, and unpacking all the new music I have is going even slower. I haven’t had the chance to get to much, so for now enjoy these. They’re top notch.
A-Trak kicked off the 10,000 lb Hamburger Tour in Tampa Bay yesterday. He is arguably one of the busiest producer’s this year already releasing two remix albums, Infinity+1 and Fabricative 45.

Hello to everyone in Ottawa! I hope everyone is having a great day because I’m about to make it better. MSTRKRFT are coming to Ottawa June 30 to bring in Canada Day. DJ Kid SL, the Ottawa Red Bull 3Style Champion opens. Show is at the Lago Supper Club (Dow’s Lake Pavillion, 1001 Queen Elizabeth Dr. 10 PM – 3AM ,19+). Tickets can be found at NORML clothing and online at wantickets.com. Poster’s are rapidly hitting the city therefore news is spreading and tickets won’t be available for long- get ’em early.
Here’s a little gem from Alan Braxe and Fred Falke to get you feeling the party.
Jaimie Fanatic dropped El Musicae a lil while ago and ever since Discodust picked it up I’ve been all about it. This track is excellent and features Netherlands producer Jesse Voorn. The result of this Electro/House sound is phenomenal and definitely worth the couple second dl. Fanatic has recently joined the Mad Decent team who already has giant names like Diplo, Crookers and Major Lazer alongside. Together they should put together some great shows for the future so keep close tabs on them.
Rightly corrected, Thunderheist is one of Canada’s emerging gem’s! Straight out of our own backyard the tag team Thunderheist – front woman Isis and soundsmith Grahm Zilla – have never been hotter. Isis representing Toronto, and Grahm- Montreal are currently on a North American tour with stops in Osaka and Tokyo before headlining the newly announced Exclaim!’s 17th Anniversary Tour with tour dates listed below!
Thunderheist produce a form of electrorap that seem to have roots in hip hop, disco, and funk, all while defining a new and unique sound which is swallowing up the locals. “Jerk It” and “Suenos Duelcos” exploded onto the scene hard last year. This year is expected to be even bigger. If you get a chance seriously think about hitting any of the upcoming shows, and as for the Ottawa locals: mark April 10th on the calendar!
