Hailed by The Globe and Mail as “the right kind of band for this decade,” Arkells are widely considered one of the most passionate, exuberant and in-demand live bands working today. As radio mainstays, sports-sync shoe-ins and curious students of culture, Arkells have remained ever present – building awareness and personal community experiences around their live shows and new music at every turn. The most emblematic example of this being The Rally, Arkells' hometown concert that was hailed as one of the biggest headline shows in the country, and is slated to return in June 2022. Arkells continue to unleash new music and tour dates as the band and their fans return to live in-person festivities. Their hotly anticipated new album BLINK ONCE is out now, with recently teased BLINK TWICE companion album due later this year.

The Beat Escape

A dark-hued electronic pop duo with a strong new wave feel the Beat Escape is the work of Montreal-based musicians Addy Weitzman and Patrick A. Boivin. The two friends bonded in a university video class crafting abstract psychedelic imagery, then later cut their teeth DJ’ing sets around Montreal and writing music together. Weitzman previously found success as part of Footprintz, another Montreal electronic act with a like-minded aesthetic. When that project began to slow down, he and Boivin pooled their equipment into a studio space together and began recording as the Beat Escape. Signing with the Bella Union label, they released their debut EP in 2016. They spent the following year in their studio crafting their debut LP, which was then sent to Finland to be mixed by DJ/producer Jori Hulkkonen. Life Is Short the Answer’s Long was released in April 2018 ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi.

The Bloody Beetroots

Producer Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, mastermind of the Bloody Beetroots was inspired by a lifelong love of comic books and punk rock. The visceral sound of Bloody Beetroots has featured prominently in TV shows and video games, and powered dozens of remixes, for artists including Chemical Brothers, Depeche Mode, The Refused, Peaches, and Britney Spears. The Bloody Beetroots discography features a string of successful EPs—including collaborations with Sir Paul McCartney, Perry Farrell,and guitar legend Peter Frampton—and two full length albums (2009's Roborama and 2013's Hide). Parties and festivals around the world have thrilled to different incarnations of the Bloody Beetroots' incendiary live show. As he celebrates the tenth anniversary of Bloody Beetroots with a reinvigorated attitude and his best music yet, he's quick to reiterate that this is only the latest chapter in a story that's still unfolding. "As long as I'm vertical, I've got to keep evolving."

Chuck Berry

Chuck Berry is known the world over as the Father of Rock and Roll, and rightly so. It was he who married country music to the blues, wrote poetic lyrics that lit the imagination, sang them over motorvatin’ rhythms and played clarion riffs that established the guitar as rock and roll’s iconic instrument.

With indelible hits such as “Johnny B. Goode,” “Maybelline,” “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Sweet Little Sixteen,” and so many others, Berry’s music became the lingua franca of rock and roll. Somewhere in the world right now, it’s pouring out of a radio and someone is playing it onstage.

The Contortionist

The Contortionist represents fearlessness in musical expression, designed to please artist as much as audience. This band makes progressive metal music, anchored in the heavy sounds that first drew the individual players to the stage, yet unmoored by convention or expectation.
On Clairvoyant, the band’s distinctive fingerprints remain, even as their atmospheric flourishes broaden to encompass ever-richer textures and mine the beauty of simplicity.
The Contortionist integrates seemingly disparate worlds to create their own sound, with a focus on tone, vibe, color, and atmosphere.

The band’s first two records, Exoplanet (2010) and Intrinsic (2012), are monstrously heavy, though no less ambitious than their newer and more expansive creative declarations.

The character of The Contortionist’s sound expanded greatly with Language, the 2014 monolithic album that introduced the band’s current lineup of vocalist Michael Lessard, keyboardist Eric Guenther, and bassist Jordan Eberhardt alongside co-founding members Cameron Maynard (guitar) and brothers Robby Baca (guitar) and Joey Baca (drums). Clairvoyant, which reunited the band with producer Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me), takes the best elements of The Contortionist’s past and reshapes them as the band follows their individual creative muses toward the future.

Cyril Hahn

Originally from Bern, Switzerland, Cyril was known for his signature remix work of Solange, Jessie Ware, Haim, Sigur Rós and the ever-popular Destiny’s Child remix of ‘Say My Name’ and three EPs on the UK imprint PMR Records/Virgin. As a performer, he has toured music festivals including Bestival, Osheaga, Falls Festival, Roskilde and Fuji Rock Festival. He’s contributed scores for various film projects, produced music for other artists and released an LP on the London based underground label Coastal Haze under his alias Pool Boy. His recent official remixes include R&B Legend Maxwell (Shame), young Canadian pop-star Johnny Orlando (What If), and recently a collaborative release with Little Boots.

Dark Horses

DARK HORSES are a psychedelic rock group from Brighton, England, with outposts in London and the Italian city of Bologna.

Drawing influence from the likes of The Velvet Underground, CAN and Gang Of Four, their current lineup is Lisa Elle (vocals), Bobby Waterson (synth/guitar), Steve Ingham (drums), David Wheeldon (guitar), Anastasia Zio (bass) and Ali Tollervey (camera). They also work closely with a diverse group of visual artists, who add a sharp edge to their shadowy, atmospheric music.

Their first two albums – Black Music and Hail Lucid State – were both produced by Death In Vegas’ Richard Fearless, and received widespread critical acclaim, leading to tours with Sigur Rós, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Dandy Warhols.

Their pandemic-delayed third album, produced by Bob Earland (Radiophonic Workshop, Roots Manuva) is due for release later in 2022.

David Strickland

As one of the most successful Indigenous audio engineers in North America, David Strickland has a Grammy award, JUNO awards, and platinum selling records under his belt. From Method Man to Drake to The Clipse, Glenn Lewis and Sade, David has worked behind the boards with some of the most celebrated artists in hip hop and R&B over the past 25 years. Bridging the gap for Indigenous artists in North America is inherently important to David. As a role model for First Nation’s Youth, David combines traditional and cultural teachings in his work and is committed to raising awareness on major social issues. David talks more about this passion in the VICE documentary First Out Here, a documentary about the rise of Indigenous hip hop artists in Canada. Through his storied career, David Strickland has persevered through many challenges to reach the top of the Canadian music industry and he is excited to share this story of his forthcoming album The Spirit of Hip Hop. Citing similarities between hip hop’s foundation and the Indigenous story in North America, David strives to showcase these connections by creating a unique blend of traditional Indigenous sounds and mainstream rap rhythms. David equates the four elements of Hip Hop with Indigenous expression – DJ is the Drummer; MC is the Storyteller; B-boys are the Dancers; Graffiti Artists are the SandPainter / Petrogliph artists.

Guest Singer

Artist // Producer

Guest Singer is the brainchild of Doncaster-based Jake Cope and co-writer France Lahmar. Live, the duo are joined by electro cohorts Max Hodkingson (keys & sampler) and Paul Burdett (Guitar).  Musically they compose dark party songs; anti-motivational anthems for the post-truth generation.  A Lynch-esque murkiness inhabits their world. They dexterously peel back the façade of the every day to reveal the eerie in the intimately familiar.  Taut pop hooks, glitchy bass lines, new wave guitar stabs and electronic dance are soaked in the combustible elegance of Cope’s delivery.  In this they fall in-line with retro-modern contemporaries like Nation of Language, W.H Lung and Working Men’s Club-following in the lineage of LCD Soundsystem and Animal Collective’s art-rock sensibilities.

Watch Live video for “The Event”


Prolific Toronto-bred producer and musical polymath Harrison is the man behind a catalog of projects with a cult following that belies his age. Barely into his twenties and still demoing ideas in his bedroom, Harrison developed an aesthetic signature influenced by Samurai Champloo, J Dilla, Nujabes, Nintendo and Parliament, evidenced on his JUNO-nominated debut album Checkpoint Titanium (2016). Graduating from sample-based production to full-fledged composition and instrumental arrangement in subsequent years, Harrison returned with Apricity (2018), which FADER dubbed “his best album yet, ”while KEXP applauded “a vibrant record that places him nicely alongside Ryan Hemsworth, Sango, Kaytranada and Onra”. Previous singles “Around You” and “Like When We Were Kids” channel his signature buttery sound, along with the TOBi-featured single “Outta This World” showcasing one of many hook-heavy features on Harrison’s forthcoming album.

High On Fire

Formed by Pike and Kensel in 1998, High on Fire started attracting attention in the metal underground, first with the 1999 High on Fire demo, and then a year later on the debut album The Art of Self Defense, which was released on Man’s Ruin Records. Listeners were drawn to the trio’s unique take on modern metal, which stripped everything down to a sludgy sound that felt brutish and artful at the same time. After signing to Relapse Records, High on Fire let loose the celebrated Surrounded By Thieves on May 28, 2002. While the LP exhibited more musical dexterity than the debut, 2005’s Blessed Black Wings was a display of astonishing growth. The band joined forces with recording genius Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies, Big Black) to create the scorching third album. Tracks like “Devilution” and “Cometh Down Hessian” catapulted High on Fire into the mainstream metal consciousness, the fanbase growing even more thanks to relentless touring at home and abroad. Matz joined the band as bassist in 2006, and the band’s forward momentum continued on the fourth album Death is This Communion a year later. High on Fire’s fifth album, 2010’s Snakes For the Divine, boldly featured a cleaner sound, thanks to producer Greg Fidelman, who had previously worked with Johnny Cash, Metallica, and U2. Which leads us to Electric Messiah, the best and most diverse of the band’s three albums with Ballou. There’s more speed than ever before but the dynamics of Electric Messiah hold the listener riveted.


This is music so driven anyone can embrace it.

This is something to remind you of music’s ability to shake you up, get you off your ass, and… well, frankly, to punish. And yet, while you’re taking Huoratron’s beat-battering, you find yourself smiling. It’s a cathartic musical assault. There’ll be blood, sweat and tears, but at the end of it all you’ll feel like a better person.

Finally, someone who doesn’t think his vision needs to be watered down for people to get it. People do get it. But how does Huoratron get both hardcore punks and hipsters to line up for hugs after soul purging gigs? Sure, they’re won over by his zero tolerance to compromise, but there’s more. The man behind the moniker, Aku Raski, has a multitude of forces working within him. On one hand he is an intuitive artist and composer, an alchemist of the esoteric art of sound. On the other hand he is a scientist, who crafts sounds and beats with the care of a 17th century violin maker. And he is also a performer — a bearded showman who moshes his way into the hearts of his audiences.

Huoratron was formed as a dogmatic underground art concept: he took limited technology – Nintendo Gameboys – and forced the gadgets to spit out a distorted wall of sound like no one had done before. The equipment has evolved in a logical progression with the music ever since, and has helped lead to Huoratron’s debut album, Cryptocracy. It serves up refined dynamics of aggression, its nuances adding to the impact. And, like it’s been from the beginning, the music is defined by a fearless attitude, a disrespect of the rules and a dedication to the cause.

With Huoratron you get the whole package. One man executing one vision with total control of his medium. And the secret ingredient? It has to come from the disarming charm and presence of the man behind it all. He makes it all human.

Jonathan Nelson

Jonathan Nelson is free from fear. He is brave and he is bold as a father, husband, brother, son of a preacher, minister, worship leader and artist/producer.

The multiple Stellar Award winner and Dove Award-nominated artist’s calling for music and passion to serve, has expanded over the years. Inspired by mentor and friend Donald Lawrence to develop his sound further and push the boundaries of gospel music, Jonathan’s gift made room for him. The Baltimore native, with family roots steeped in ministry, strongly stands on the foundation that that journey is to be embraced and enjoyed. “There is something to learn each and every day. If you don’t enjoy it, you will have missed the moments that you should have enjoyed. I live in the day. Tomorrow will take care of itself. I am enjoying the journey through faith and the inspiration of music. Here, I encourage myself as I encourage others.”

It is through Jonathan’s own lens of openness, honesty, and acceptance without fear that he was able to access the vision for his future, but it took a small nudge from a friend in faith in order for him to pinpoint exactly what to call it. That nudge led Jonathan to embrace the forthcoming shift in his life that was revealed to him in prayer. Acknowledging this next place was “a great place of trusting, belief, great faith with no fear,” Jonathan was on his next journey and assignment in life and in music.

Jonathan is clear what he desires for listeners to receive. “I pray people to be healed of whatever is ailing them. I want them to be empowered (to seek Him for themselves), to be encouraged (in whatever situation they are in) and be inspired (to believe).” As the husband of over twenty years to Christina and father to his son and daughter, Jonathan Nelson desires to deliver a legacy of music and ministry that cross generations. In providing ministry through song, the foundation for the future will be anchored in faith. And Jonathan wouldn’t have it any other way.

Later that same year he released the single “SUPERNOVAS”, co-produced by MSTRKRFT. Since the release of the track, it’s received critical acclaim with Complex saying it’s “ a tailfeather-shaking slab of disco-pop.” Now, in 2021 k-os is bringing a little slice of power-pop heaven, with his take on The Cars classic, “Just What I Needed”.

Kalie Shorr

According to The New York Times, Kalie Shorr’s debut album – Open Book – was the #7 Best Album of 2019 alongside Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande. Along with a list of other accolades, Variety called Open Book “2019’s best freshman country effort.”

Shorr burst onto the Nashville music scene in 2016 with her self-penned hit “Fight Like A Girl” and shortly after, the Portland, Maine singer-songwriter became a SiriusXM “Highway Find.” She was named a “CMT Next Women of Country,” “The New Nashville” by Teen Vogue and a “Top 10 Country Artists To Watch In 2018” by the Huffington Post.

She made her Grand Ole Opry debut in 2018 and has gone on to play it 17 times. From her work with the all-female, singer-songwriter collective Song Suffragettes, Shorr has been featured on PBS NewsHour, NPR’s “Morning Edition” and “On Point” as well as in ELLE Magazine.

She rang in 2020 performing for over 200,000 people at Nashville’s New Year’s Eve show with Keith Urban, Stevie Nicks, Jason Isbell and more. With wide praise for her debut album coming from NPR, People, Rolling Stone and more, Shorr’s 2020 lit up with The Guardian and The Tennessean calling her an artist to watch. She is the most recent signee to tmwrk records who will be releasing the expanded album Open Book: Unabridged later this year.

Loving is the collaboration of David Parry and brothers, Lucas and Jesse Henderson. The band came together several years ago as a result of their shared summers working in the capitalist ruins of western Canada’s forests. The seven tracks that came to form Loving’s eponymous debut EP were written and recorded between Victoria and Toronto in the winter of 2015. The collection of lo-fi psychedelic folk songs found success online and the band amassed an organic fanbase. Thus inspired to continue the project, Jesse and David decamped to Gabriola Island in the spring of 2017 to begin work on new material. There, they set up a recording studio in Jesse and Lucas’ late grandmother’s seaside home and demoed the songs that would form the backbone of If I Am Only My Thoughts. Released on January 31st, 2020 on Last Gang Records, If I Am Only My Thoughts is Loving’s first full-length album. With lyrics written by both Jesse and Lucas, the lush, homespun collection of songs was recorded, mixed, and mastered by David in his basement studio in Victoria. If I Am Only My Thoughts offers listeners a space to ruminate on life’s uncertainties and acknowledge the often strange journey of being alive.

Milo Greene

Milo Greene are a collective of Los Angeles based singer-songwriters. After gaining momentum touring with the The Civil Wars, they released their debut self-titled album in 2012, featuring the single "1957". The band became known for their signature walls of vocal harmonies, nostalgic lyrics, and haunting soundscapes. In the years that followed they toured internationally, featuring stops at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, as well as performances on Letterman, Leno, and Conan. Their sophomore LP, "Control" was released in 2015, followed by their "Never Ender EP" in early 2017. They recently finished their third studio album in Nashville with Bill Reynolds, which will be released by Nettwerk Music Group September 7th, 2018. Singles "Be Good to Me" and "Move" out now ahead of the LP.

Nikki Yanofsky

On Nikki Yanofsky’s latest album Turn Down The Sound, the Montreal-based artist comes full circle on an ambition she’s been angling towards for years: perfecting the ability to believe in and act on her own creative intuition. Guided by the knowledge that the best of the best at their craft are never done learning, Yanofsky’s ambitions have shifted. On Turn Down The Sound, she likens herself to the idiom of an outlier in a field of invariability, and has given herself the room and permission to sculpt an updated vision for her sound. Turn Down The Sound finds Yanofsky tailoring a new self-made coat, where the impact of an esteemed group of mentors has resulted in the tenacity and aptitude to try on an amalgamation of genres, and find each one fit exceptionally well. Inspired by the desire to make ageless, timeless music, the unmistakable dynamism of her voice is the anchor of an album that’s both intricately crafted and wildly curious. The album enthusiastically rejects a single stylistic pillar. Throughout the album, she blends the confidence of bright 80s funk, with the rapt attention to detail of silky 90s R&B (“Bubbles,” “Nerve,” Turn Down Sound”). Elsewhere, lush, kaleidoscopic melodies nod to the height of ultra sleek sophisti-pop (“Sunshine,” ”Throwing Stones,” “Loner”).

Polyenso’s music is rooted in an intangible balance. Creating the band’s genre-defying sound requires a keen ability to recognize and capture the spark that comes from combining disparate elements, and over the course of two LPs (2013’s One Big Particular Loop, and 2016’s Pure In The Plastic), they’ve managed to walk a fine line between boundless experimentation and unabashed pop hooks. Now on their new EP, Year Of The Dog, Polyenso looks for that balance in increasingly unstable times.
The St. Petersburg, Florida-based three piece -- vocalist/keyboardist Brennan Taulbee, multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Alex Schultz, and drummer Denny Agosto -- started playing together almost 10 years ago in earlier projects that would evolve into Polyenso. This willingness to learn, explore, and adapt is essential to the band’s sound: a detailed blend of styles that incorporates organic instrumentation, glitchy electronics, hip hop beats, lush synths, and more—often all within the same song. Schultz elaborates, “Every time we set out to create a song it has to be something that feels true to ourselves. It can’t lean too far towards our experimental side, or too far towards our more pop structured side. It’s about trying to find what’s genuine for us.”

Ra Charm

Songwriter, producer and one quarter of the all-star Grammy-Award winning team The Stereotypes, is always at the forefront of the next big thing in R&B and hip-hop.

Blige’s “Good Love,” Fifth Harmony’s “Deliver,” and Lil Yachty’s “Better,” among many others. Ra Charm’s latest production can be heard on “Too Loud (feat. Nef the Pharoah)”, as performed by G-Eazy. Most recently, Ra and The Stereotypes have produced tracks for Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak’s Silk Sonic project, called “After Last Night,” a track from Audrey Nuna and Niki “Clocked Out” on the recent Marvel Soundtrack for Shang-Chi, as well as big tracks for Victoria Monet “Coastin’” and Shensea featuring Tyga “Target.”

Ryan Playground

Genevieve Ryan Martel (aka RYAN Playground) was raised by two classical musicians in Montreal. At age 5 she received her first drum kit and by 11 she was creating her own compositions with her guitar and drums. By the time she was a teenager, Genevieve was experimenting with FL studio and electronic music.
RYAN Playground is a project born out of playtime - the meeting of a seasoned musician in touch with the wide-eyed exuberance and angsty emotions that come with being a teenager. In her music, RYAN harkens back the days when she was growing up in the suburbs listening to pop punk.

The Standstills

Rock ‘n’ roll duo, The Standstills, have built a reputation for transcendent anthem-making with an earnestly steadfast formula: gigantic hooks, unapologetically hypnotic grooves, and infectious unabashedly cool riffs. The ethos could not be more evident than on the band’s latest single release, Pretty Little Broken Thing, which drops today via MNRK Music Group.

“Pretty Little Broken Thing is a punk rock love story about two people living on the edge, teetering towards a very dangerous life, who for better or worse, realize their only hope is to rely on one another in order to survive their tango through a world of sin and depravity,” says Jonny Fox (vocals/guitar).

Produced by Neil Sanderson, from Three Days Grace, and mixed by two-time GRAMMY Award-winner, Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Papa Roach, Daughtry), Pretty Little Broken Thing blends immediately accessible choruses with magnetic layers of depth revealed in repeated listens.

Thompson Egbo Egbo

Hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Thompson Egbo-Egbo is a pianist with a gift for memorable but harmonically complex compositions that have at their core a deep, abiding groove. In 2018, Egbo-Egbo issued ‘A New Standard’ for eOne, which sought to redefine the concept of the jazz standard, and included original takes on Radiohead, Bob Dylan and Laura Mvula tunes. The album was recorded in a trio format, with Randall Hall on bass and Jeff Halischuk on drums, marking a departure from the solo playing for which Egbo-Egbo had become known. ‘A New Standard’ was well received by critics and audiences alike, with Canadian Beats magazine calling it ‘a brilliant display of creativity, keen diversity and expert arranging.’ The end of the year saw the inclusion of the album on JazzFM’s Music Director’s Top 20 of 2018, landing at #6, among records by Kamasi Washington and John Scofield. For ‘The Offering’, Egbo-Egbo has returned to the trio format. If ‘A New Standard’ sought to change the conversation, ‘The Offering’ seeks to create a new dialogue about what we expect from a ‘jazz’ trio. Many of the tracks on ‘The Offering’ were written on stage, and put to tape after they’d been fleshed out live. This adds a presence and muscular tone to the album. The recording process itself was an attempt to capture the essence of the trio live - the element that has been attracting an ever growing audience to the trio’s concerts.

Todd Dulaney

Gospel/worship artist Todd Dulaney is noted for his smooth classic soul delivery and contemporary arranging and songwriting styles. After singing backup for Smokie Norful and others, he released his debut album, Pulling Me Through, in 2013. He went on to top the Billboard gospel albums chart with both 2016’s A Worshipper’s Heart and 2018’s Your Great Name. Dulaney’s fifth full-length, Anthems & Glory, relied heavily on scripture for its message.

Born and raised in Maywood, Illinois, and singing from a young age, Dulaney spent much of his youth aspiring to a career in baseball, eventually playing for Wabash Valley College in Mount Carmel, Illinois. From college, he was drafted by MLB’s New York Mets in 2002 and spent five (non-consecutive) years playing professional minor-league baseball. During that span, he continued to devote energies to ministry and singing. He ultimately accepted an invitation to tour with Grammy-winning gospel artist Smokie Norful as a backup singer, and built a performance résumé working with other artists including but not limited to Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin, and Michelle Williams.

Tre Mission

At first, rapper/producer Tre Mission was drawn to grime because of the genre’s dirty name, but the U.K.-based sound quickly became central to his music, along with grime’s later outgrowth, dubstep. Even if dubstep was a U.K. creation, he preferred the louder, boomier style popular in the U.S., the land to the south of where Mission was born and raised, in Toronto, Canada, by a Trinidadian mother and Jamaican father. Bob Marley was his earliest influence, as the reggae legend’s music filled the house, then hip-hop came into Tre’s life, which led to him discovering the subgenre of grime via Dizzee Rascal’s music. In 2010 he issued his first grime-based freestyles and tracks, including “Hold Up,” which caught the ear of BBC DJ Tim Westwood. His EP The Practice Mission arrived in 2011, then in 2013 he issued his debut mixtape, Malmaison. In 2014 he signed with the Ninja Tune label, which released his debut album, Stigmata, that same year.


Portland producer Trox has been coming with heat for longer than people realize. Even if you’re just finding out about him, this west coast beat-maker has been working for quite some time. Armed with a seemingly endless supply of bangers, Trox has inserted himself into the upper echelon of active hip hop producers.

While Trox has been instrumental in putting Portland hip hop on the map, he’s also produced for some of the biggest names in rap including 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, and YBN Cordae. In 2017, Trox joined forces with Detroit rapper Ty Farris and released Room 39, a hard-hitting full-length record including appearances by Royce Da 5’9, Kid Vishis, and Rapper Big Pooh.

Trox has shown his ability to provide a backdrop for all sorts of MC’s, as well as letting them stand alone. His soundscapes appear on Spotify playlists such as “Gold Instrumental Beats,” “Focus Flow,” and “Chill Instrumental Beats.” In 2018, Trox released Black Gloves, an instrumental album that could easily be the soundtrack to your favorite noir flick.

Through it all Trox has never been afraid to stand alongside, and learn, from some of the greatest in the game. That’s led to appearing in a video for DJ and music production software company Serato and participating in 2018’s Beat Society event. Most recently, Trox was summoned by Dreamville (J Cole’s label) to help work on their Revenge Of The Dreamers III compilation album. Rest assured, more is on the way.

We Are Enfant Terrible

Passionate about electronic objects, bizarre fashion and twisted guitar riffs, the group We are Enfant Terrible, created at the end of 2008, is an exalted masculine feminine trio. Their first album, released in April 2011 on Last Gang, a Chromeo, Metric and Crystal Castles label, allowed them to travel the globe, from Toronto to Shanghai, from Austin to Moscow, from Carhaix to Roubaix. From punk squats to opening acts for famous artists (Peaches, the Ting Tings, Vitalic), We are Enfant Terrible has earned a solid reputation both live and in the studio. Of them, Aurélie Sfez of France Inter will say: 'The group offers us music as clear as it is dirty, as festive as it is gloomy, video game sounds, cracra saturations, a sexy and filtered voice. They are young and wild, filled with joy and sadness. It's the energy of despair, the day after a party when you don't quite know who or what bed you ended up in. They are like a good betaine citrate, effervescent against hangovers. Their songs are a reflection of their childhood spent playing Pacman or Super Mario, the dark and heady scent of a society of human-machines. They are the heirs to the clubs and music of New Order. It's the ambiguity of cute sounds, worked and cheap at the same time. A sexuality that emerges from their simpering."

The Wild!

The Wild! still believe in rock n’ roll and after one listen, so will you. The rabblerousing foursome from the Great White North are a perfect mixture of the sound and swagger of rock n’ roll, the passion and heart of the blues, and the smell of punk rock. A trilogy of white-hot slabs of sex, drugs, and unbridled all out riffage have made The Wild! the undisputed champs of shit-kicking truth. Still Believe in Rock N’ Roll is the Canadian quartet’s third LP with A-list producer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Van Halen), a massive champion of the band from the start. In just a handful of years, The Wild! cracked the Active Rock and iTunes Rock Charts, while logging significant road miles, touring with the likes of Airbourne, Steel Panther, Buckcherry, Godsmack, Korn, Rise Against, Wolfmother, and others. They’ve played major festivals like Carolina Rebellion, Welcome To Rockville, Wacken Open Air, Sweden Rock, and many more. The commitment to perfecting the live show is what elevates the never-say-die songwriting and attitude powering GxDxWxB (2015), Wild At Heart (2017), and most especially, album three. To paraphrase Pure Grain Audio, this band’s sound is what you get when you lock the Delta Blues in a van with little more than bourbon, cheap cigarettes, and classic rock cassettes. The Wild! are lifers on the highway paved by AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses, ZZ Top, Motörhead, Cheap Trick, and every blues-based pioneer with heart, authenticity, and a deep commitment to what they do.

The Wild Reeds

The Wild Reeds are a band led by women, and that matters. Not a sister band, not a girl group, but a band fronted by three women, all talented singers, songwriters, and multi-instrumentalists in their own right: Kinsey Lee, Mackenzie Howe, and Sharon Silva, with drummer Nick Jones and bass player Nick Phakpiseth providing the Los Angeles-based band’s rhythmic foundation. Like a harmony at its euphoric best, the leads’ powerful – and powerfully distinct – voices merge to form a sound that can only be The Wild Reeds. On their third LP, Cheers, the band comes together to create an ode to the joys and pains of camaraderie.
“Pretty Little Broken Thing is a punk rock love story about two people living on the edge, teetering towards a very dangerous life, who for better or worse, realize their only hope is to rely on one another in order to survive their tango through a world of sin and depravity,” says Jonny Fox (vocals/guitar).
