Ahead of their set for the second annual BIG Winter Classic, Calgary mainstays Lab Coast dropped a new video for their song ‘Back To Your Future’ off their 2016 release Remember the Moon. Shot by local video editor and musician Sara Hughes of Pre Nup, the video follows the shenanigans of two mischievous youths as they trespass, shoplift, and perform transit gymnastics before stumbling into a house show. Featuring many local landmarks like Cemetery Hill, Globe Cinema, and the comically outdated VHS rental section of the Inglewood Corner Store, ‘Back To Your Future’ is a melodic stroll through memory lane.

You can catch Lab Coast tonight (January 19th) at Dickens Pub. Click here to stream their latest album Remember the Moon.


Goldfish: Deep of the Night

gold

South African duo Goldfish return with their unique style of organic house music and the release of their new single, “Deep of the Night.” The song is the first single off Goldfish’s upcoming fifth album, Tipping the Scales, out this Spring.

The story of “Deep of the Night” begins where it all started for these life long musicians – the beaches nestled around Cape Town, South Africa. Dominic Peters and David Poole were driving home from late evening surf, casually listening to the radio and serendipitously stumbled across a first, and what turned out to be only – play of a new band called Diamond Thug. Dom and Dave were instantly hooked, and tracked down the band (who co-incidentally also lived in Capetown). A jam session was set up at the Goldfish studios and so, a song was born.

Just got passed this track from London-based DJ / producer, Breakplus, and you just got to hear it. It’s called “Le Train Enflamme” and it’s a slow-burning force!

Originally from Switzerland, Breakplus is one half of Thieves of Time ( = Mr. Beatnick + Breakplus). If you like what you’re hearing, check out the Breakplus 12″ on Bandcamp called Instant Bull.

“New Ferments” is the first track produced by Pittsburgh-based artist wwoman. The song is based around a series of loops and is meant to roam through a pensive atmosphere as it does.

Ol’ Dirty Barstards

It’s always good to hear some real hip hop. Especially coming out of England. British rapper/producer, L Martin, recently passed me a collaboration he’s worked on with Fonzie, RAYSH and Eklipse called “Ol’ Dirty Barstards.”

“The collaboration came about during a period where I was having a lot of late night studio sessions and collaborating with a lot of different people that I rate highly,” says L Martin. “During one of those sessions, I came across this instrumental and me and Fonzie just started barring to it instantly. It was originally supposed to be just us on the tune but once RAYSH heard it he asked if he could lay a verse down. After hearing all 3 verses, I knew Eklipse would kill the last verse and turn it into a solid display of lyrics and flows combined with that old school hip hop vibe that I love.” The result is reminiscent of Odd Future’s ‘Oldie Freestyle.’ Playful lyricism mixed with alcohol consumption.

Evan White is the Canadian DJ/producer behind Vandelux. “‘Bright Lights’ is my first original release with (my own) vocals, excited to share with you guys,” admits White. “Style is a bit of a change-up from the other stuff I have been working on. My original intention was to keep the track super mellow from start to finish but I ended up with some pretty gritty synths that I couldn’t resist working into he breakdowns.”

Born in Vancouver, Canada White has been living in Luxembourg for the past 3 years. He’s currently working on a full length collaboration album to be released sometime early this year.

Don’t Make Me Leave US

AkelloGLight

Most sources report that Akello G. Light is an international herbal tea drinker from North Carolina. Allegedly spending more than $200 at any of the organic and metaphysical stores he visits, Akello is known for creating laid-back instrumentals with esoteric lyrics that you burn incenses to and perhaps take nootropic herbal remedies.

When Akello isn’t drinking herbal tea or taking herbal remedies that you most probably can’t pronounce, he is producing some interesting hip-hop. The sound is reminiscent of Madlib or Jay Dilla, and every song tells a story. His latest single, “Don’t Make Me Leave US” explores the story of a cheating girlfriend. “What does a guy do when the woman he loves is pregnant by another man?”

Check out Akello’s latest EP Green Tea Mint 3: Herbal Remedies on bandcamp now.
