Syv de Blare – Crash

Posted by: Mountain Dog on 23/02/2016 in Music, Video

Syv de Blare offers the debut single “Crash,” produced by ANGO (LuckyMe) and mixed by Gavin Bradley (Nelly Furtado, Serena Ryder). It’s a fresh take on pop with an industrial edge and her first from the upcoming EP “Passage” which features additional production from Mischa “Book” Chillak (Esthero, Brandy, Estelle).

Syv de Blare started out in Montreal as an opera, blues and jazz vocalist who also ended up on the mic at many storied club nights with Lunice, Jacques Greene, Azari and III and more. While finishing her BFA at RISD in New York, she was encouraged by childhood friend Lunice (TNGHT, LuckyMe) to start working on an original project with eclectic producer/composer ANGO that would realize itself as Syv de Blare.

Syv de Blare will also be featured on Lunice’s debut E.P. later this year.

Kat Vinter – Sooner or Later (Michael Imperial Remix)

Posted by: Mountain Dog on 16/07/2015 in Music

Islands-remixes

Michael Imperial (Toronto producer & Rare Beef co-founder) remixes Berlin-by-way-of-Australia singer Kat Vinter‘s new single “Sooner or Later”. He adds his signature touch of deep UK garage-meets-future-bass to Vinter’s auspicious vocals. Led by tonal percussions and complex vocal chops, this track is more than suitable for the club as well as the after party.

The remix is one of many on Kat Vinter’s “Islands Remix EP” released via Culvert Music on July 10th 2015.

Buy it on iTunes.

Kat Vinter – Sooner Or Later

Posted by: Mountain Dog on 25/02/2015 in Music, Video

Kat Vinter is set to release her debut EP Islands late April via Culvert Music. The EP showcases Kat’s lush vocals combined with brooding, beat driven pop music. The result is a haunting soundscape with moments of darkness and light, beauty and tension. Alongside local German beat master Hannes Buscher and Norwegian poet Laila Samuels, Kat created the layers of hip hop inspired beats, tribal drums, waves of synths and ethereal vocals that developed into Islands.

“Sooner or Later” is the first track to be released off of Islands. The video, directed by Julian Ticona Cuba and Daniel Bartels, exemplifies Kat’s dark and mysterious aesthetic that can be heard throughout the entirety of her upcoming EP. Indie Shuffle said of the track, “An undeniable talent…Kat Vinter will be a name you’re all familiar with as the year goes on.”

Like his production, live-sets flow between heavy, footwork inspired selections and dance floor motivators. The result is a fast-rising prospect with a name for vibrant, kaleidoscopic sounds that maintain dramatic tension, while deeply satisfying his disparate following.

The eleventh track of the sixteen is “Winter” brought to you by Cosella & Boki. Cosella Born Andreas Anthony Rizek, the young producer from Aurora Ontario has a fresh take on the Canadian tech and deep house scene. Owning a smooth groovy style, Cosella tracks sound like home to those who live on the White Island, Ibiza Spain. It’s hard not to like this up and comer. Having toured with acts such as Mark Knight, Pleasurekraft, Nic Fanciulli, Chris Lake, Michael Woods and many more, don’t expect Cosella to be naive to the scene. He is a young gun with some bite to his bark, both professionally, and personally. “Something that I stand by is playing something people haven’t heard before” says the passionate artist. “I want to get people moving rather than flooding them with the same stuff they hear at the club across the street.” Releasing his new single ‘Culture Move’ on Provoke and a steady independent mix show titled ‘Follow My Groove’, Cosella is on the move. Expect to hear great things from him in the new year.
