AGO’s Waldo returns with his first track off the upcoming EP Summer Child produced by Mozaic which is dropping in June, stream the track and his latest music video for “Royal Oats” from the Tuebor project below.
Prolific up-and-comer Eau Claire brings the heat again with this nu-disco remix of Nashville songstress Cappa. The Washington, DC producer lends the vocals a summery touch with subtle piano stabs and floating synths… the perfect song for lounging poolside.
Ben Browning of Cut Copy infamy is back in our ears this morning with his new uplifting indie-pop single, ‘Friends of Mine’. Happy (not cheesy) major chords with heavy 80s influences, supported by DFA-style drums and a simple yet catchy hook. What’s not to like?
Only 3 months ago Post Malone became a name known in the rap world with only his very first track ever released achieving major success as if it was his first single for his debut album… but it’s not. The Texas raised artist brings a smooth and chill vibe to Rap gliding his way through verses which leaves you wondering if it’s rapping or singing but either way you enjoy it. It’s a refreshing sound with some familiar characteristics, the flow instantly makes you sing along even if you don’t know the words and the beat’s mostly from duo FKi makes you want to bust out the nae nae but in slow mo. Catch the rising artist at Republic June 12th with Jay Worthy of LNDN DRGS, Seth Kay and AKA Paradise DJ’s getting things started.

I caught Mike Hadreas aka Perfume Genius behind the Vogue Theatre when he was in town opening for Belle & Sebastian. He had snuck out back for a quick vape and I got him to talk about his bubbling anger, his growth as a songwriter, the fact that every article about him uses the word “sexuality“and more. Listen to our chat!
Perfume Genius “Queen” This was one of my favorite songs of last year. “Queen” is the jewel in the crown of Perfume Genius‘ triumphant third record Too Bright.
Perfume Genius “Normal Song” One of my favorite songs off his second record Put Your Back N 2 It. Mike tells me who he wrote this song for during our chat.
Perfume Genius is back in Vancouver tonight, Thursday, May 21st at the Imperial. Mike reminded me that tonight he was co-headlining for Win Butler‘s solo project. (Yes, Win Butler from Arcade Fire.) See you there! It’s going to be amazing.

Chicago has been boiling with talent since the rise of “Drill” music started by King Louie and put on the mainstream by Chief Keef, since then several young rappers have made their name known but one that has stuck out from the rest is 20 year old Brandon Dickinson aka Lil Bibby. Since his first debut mix-tape Free Crack the rapper has not stopped in his rise to success having co-signs from Drake & King Louie among several others. His latest mix-tape Free Crack 2 has moved from street gritty tracks to top notch production and mainstream features including Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, T.I., Jadakiss & Kevin Gates. With the promising sound and success he has gathered the Chiraq rapper is sure to brake free from the street level/underground sound he is known for and surely release a mainstream EP with The Book on it’s way. Lil Bibby will be making his Vancouver debut May 29th at Republic Nightclub along with Jay Worthy of LNDN DRGS, BODY~n~SOUL and AKA Paradise DJ’s getting things started, click here for more info on the event and purchase tickets here.
