Nestled in the small, mining town of Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, The Festival de Musique Émergente...

Music festivals have been straight up shaping up this summer and this particular year...

  • With Music For Dogs, Gardens & Villa show off their changing sound. Hailing from Santa Barbra, the band’s previous music has been run-of-the-mill indie-rock. Since 2011 they’ve released two albums, including 2014’s Dunes and a self-titled debut in 2011. While their previous sound has been electronic, yet warm, indie-pop, Music For Dogs highlights their new complex […]

  • Toronto’s Fort York is one of the city’s best areas for a music festival. The grounds are set lower than the surrounding neighbourhood, keeping the sound well-enclosed within the fence, while the city view set behind the stage as a backdrop — CN Tower and all — makes FY a great place to spend a summer day in.

  • Since their 2010 formation, Wild Ones have devoted themselves to a do-it-yourself mentality.

Coming from a variety of different musical backgrounds, the Wild Ones pride themselves on having a democratic system — making sure every voice (and there are […]

The grounds, lit by an intense summer sun, were decorated with all of the basic birthday decorations from balloons and party hats to cupcakes but KnK did not stop there: wandering […]

  • Last Sunday DMC Toronto Scratch DJ Competition and Ontario Regional DJ Battle took over the Rivoli in the heart of Downtown Toronto. The room mostly occupied by friends and industry specialists created a very casual environment for the battle.  First on the agenda was the Scratch competition during which a set of DJs performed a […]

  • The Acid are Ry Cuming, Steve Nalepa, and Adam Freeland, each of whom have notable music careers outside of this circle, but when they come together, the experience is unlike any other. In light of the band’s brief tour,...

  • At Lollapalooza in the press tent, shortly before playing a set of entirely new and unreleased music exclusive to the festival, the Hermitude boys sat down and talked to me. Their style, like their music, was laid back and...

  • Though their vocal cords were swollen and raw from airplane air and shouting over festival noise, the Galantis duo, Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw, bravely committed themselves to answering questions a mere hour before their set at Lollapalooza. What...

  • Andrew John Clarke is a well-known man in the dance music industry, but you probably know him as Andy C. You might remember him from the raves you went to in high school, or the raves you have been...

  • I met Gabriel Garzón-Montano in the press tent of Lollapalooza, moments after his noontime set in the blasting heat. Though, mysteriously, he was neither sweaty nor flustered by the rush of activity, sitting calmly, sipping a mineral water. His...

  • Daniel Goldstein, better known by his stage name Lane 8, is a San Fran-bred, Germany-based producer operating under the warm wing of the Anjunadeep music label. Many things about Lane 8 are epiphanies, his name for instance is a reference to...
