Synthposium vol. 11 Montréal Edition - Challenge 1

SCENE SURVEY:  WHICH ELECTRONIC SUB-GENRES ARE ALIVE TODAY IN MONTRÉAL?

  • Lara’s pick - liquid feeling/cinematic instrumental:  CFCF - Exercise #3 (Building)
Got to know CFCF via the Elite Gymnastics remix “Here, In Heaven 4 & 5” (which is available for download here), enjoyed the tender and frosty soundscape, looked them up and not only is he based in Montréal but he just released a stellar new EP Exercises, last week with Paper Bag Records.  Also if you dug the John Maus/Ms. 45 mashup be sure to check out CFCF/Nuits Rouges video by Alex Jones.

  • Les’ pick - garage-influenced house:  Jacques Green - Another Girl
Jacques Greene came to our attention for his remix of Kelly Rowland’s epic slowjam “Motivation”, in which he gave a dancefloor seducer a more kinetic pulse.  His sound is distinct with his R&B samples immersed in lush ambience and fluttering beats, “Another Girl” features vocal samples by Ciara, from her cover of “Deuces” by Chris Brown.
