Tonight at Slake, the Turbo techno tactician returns to make us all dance; as Montreal’s favorite son Tiga comes to the heart of the city this time to provide an unforgettable night of raunchy rhythmic madness. Maintaining his penchant for seeing what’s next before caring about what’s trending, Tiga’s been making music for over a decade’s time that’s still just as invigorating as the first time you would hear it; and with the roll he’s been on currently with Audion (aka Matthew Dear) and his Turbo Recordings label, there’s absolutely no stopping him from making everyone get ready to get down. Joining him at Slake will be Rynecologist (BNR/Fool’s Gold), a fellow Canadian (via Toronto) who’s been making noise with his unique take on dancefloor banger etiquette. Along with the aforementioned Canadian producers will be residents Alex English and RekLES, as well as techno-oriented local Sheepshead. Tickets are sure to be snatched up fast, so check out the flyer, ticket link and a preview of what’s to come, down below.
Ginette Claudette is in her early twenties and a rising pop/r&b artist that we all should really look out for. In 2010, Ginette landed a record contract with Universal Motown Records sharing studio time and working closely with some of the music industry’s top songwriters & producers such as; Baby Face, Rico Love, Wayne Wilkins, August Rigo and more recently, gracing her talent on a remix track with Eric Bellinger. After parting ways with Universal Motown and making music independently, Ginette was able to leave her mark with the release of her first EP, “Everything’s Coming Up Roses” in 2012 and touring internationally with Far East Movement. Her new single, ”Better Love” Ft. Rico Love, off of her latest album, “Tainted Emotions” released on February 25th, is a track you’ll find all of the single ladies bumping in their car …
Jazz guitarist, Nir Felder released his debut album “Golden Age” last month on January 21st via Sony/OKeh. At a very young age, Nir Felder took up playing the guitar at 13; inspired by musicians such as Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Felder has performed all around New York City, including Radio City Music Hall and the Village Vanguard, playing alongside John Scofield, Meshell N’degeocello, George Duke, and many others. In Nir Felder’s new live video, “Lover”, which he has shared with us, it’s safe to say that he is not only technically fascinating to watch, but plays with a lot of emotion, heart, and soul.
What may have started off as a possible “accidental” track while touring, Milagres’ “Sunburn” single (that was just released via Kill Rock Stars) is far from an accidental hit. Try envisioning a sound reminiscent of Coldplay; in-flight, free and always searching for the truth–a glisten in the sun. With soaring vocals and melodic rhythms, it’s easy to identify “Sunburn” as a delicately refined track that is intricately well produced.
Violent Light will be released on February 25th, 2014.
I arrived fifteen minutes early to meet Denitia & Sene late January in Manhattan. After giving the place a quick once over, I sat at an empty bar stool. No sign of them and no missed calls. It turned out the guests of honor had been waiting for me in the back of the restaurant behind a huge velvet curtain. ”We’ve already tweeted the magazine about being stood up,” joked their manager. After a round of laughter and a handful of apologies, we got to know each other over a few drinks, some small plates, and a brief photo shoot on a rooftop across the street.
