PREMIERE: Dom Dias – (–/–/16) Throwaway EP

Posted by: noble savage on 30/12/2016 in Featured, Music


To say Dom Dias is one of the hardest working producers in Toronto is an understatement. In 2016 alone, we had the privilege of premiering and posting 10 of his projects, including some stellar originals, remixes, and EPs. On top of his musical output, Dom played some of the biggest electronic music shows in the city alongside heavyweights like Snakehips, Ookay, THUGLI, and more. 2016 has been a hell of a year for the kid, and he is closing it out by letting go of his (–/–/16) Throwaway EP. The release contains six previously unreleased original demos that Dom has been dropping throughout his sets, and vary from hiphop instrumentals to 128 BPM dancehall/baile funk-influenced electronic bangers. The best part about the drop is that it’s absolutely free. So, if you haven’t already become familiar with Dom Dias in 2016, now’s your chance to start 2017 off on the right foot. To Dom, we’d just like to say: may the new year bring you continued growth and success in both your musical and personal endeavours – we’ll be here to support as always! Stream below and get the free download via Dropbox.

PREMIERE: IO-990 – 2501 (Mixtape)

io-990 2501 mix

Toronto is home to a number of brilliant artists. The city is teeming with subterranean talent of all kinds, from visual artists to filmmakers to music producers to DJs and more. In days gone by, it was common for the mainstream masses to walk past these creative denizens without so much as noticing their existence. Pushed to the fringes, the outcast children of The 6 formed their own culture and sought out their own scene. Away from the eyes and ears of the ignorant, they built a safe place for society’s misfits to experiment with different styles, share their love for their crafts, and simultaneously raise hell with their creations. Brimming with chaotic energy, the scene grew exponentially. Finally, unable to contain itself, it exploded into view. And, as if illuminated by the floodlight of a police chopper, all eyes became focused on a culture that had been hiding in the shadows for too long.

Almost overnight, the cover was lifted off characters straight out of a Lewis Carroll nightmare. It became almost impossible to walk through the city without running into their kind at most street corners. Much can be said about their outward appearances and artistic visions, but one thing remained clear – no matter how different they seemed from the average Torontonian, they still were filled with unmistakably human spirits. Hidden among them, however, was an extremely unique being. Disguised as a human female, this entity grew up observing the artwork of the city and the people that created it. She studied piano, as many of her “peers” did, and began to explore the many different genres created by humankind. Classical music, opera, jazz, rock, metal, hiphop, grime, techno, and deep house were just some of the elements that entered her circulation and permeated into the temporal and prefrontal cortices of her adopted human brain. Her neural networks processed this data into what would soon be expressed through man-made machines and computer technology.

Under the moniker IO-990, she began to reveal her identity to the Toronto underground. While so many jockeyed for positions in the limelight, she carefully honed her sound into a creation that would captivate dance floors well beyond the boundaries of the mega-city. And it’s with that experience that she presents her latest project: 2501. A forty-five minute journey into the nuclear reactor that is IO-990’s mind, 2501 is a massive statement. It’s a warning to all of humanity that a musical movement has begun – one we can neither deny nor run from; one we’ll have to embrace as we’re engulfed in a deluge of sound and dance. We’re now entering uncharted territory, and IO-990 will be damned if we try to pass her by without taking notice.

Listen to 2501 above, take in the tracklist after the jump, and be sure to catch IO-990 as she performs at DARK ROOM this Friday, May 20th, at Rally (12 Ossington Ave, Toronto) – check out the event page for more information and to RSVP.
