About a half an hour before my interview with Edmonton indie pop singer-songwriter Calvin Love, I got a text. Calvin needed a hook up. (Later, he’d confide that this was his first time asking an interviewer for some assistance.)
Which song did Calvin write while on the toilet? How does he escape the everyday routine? Which Calvin Love song is a love story involving a robot? And most importantly: Did I hook Calvin up? You’ll have to listen to find out!
Tracks played on the show…
1) Calvin Love, Super Future (2015) “I Wanna Know” (mp3)
2) Calvin Love, Super Future (2015) “Automaton”
3) Calvin Love, Super Future (2015) “Daydream”

Edmonton’s Hood Joplin caught our attention a while back with simple beat ideas that had the potential to grow, now she releases #75FFA1 EP on Drama Hands and we’re happy we kept an eye on her. The 5-track EP ranges in bass driven sounds plus a local feature from So Loki’s Sam Lucia. Stream below!
Vancouver’s Sam Lucia teams up with Edmonton’s Hood Joplin on the creative and definitely interesting two track EP DETOUR, on “Flippin The Pages” both artists go back and forth flowing over a very eclectic beat produced by Sam. “Influx” has Sam flowing over a bouncy beat produced by Joplin, this is a great progressive project that definitely stands on it’s own. Don’t miss out on Sam Lucia performing at Winnie Cooper & Friends THIS FRIDAY at Fortune Sound Club, click here for more info on the event and stream the EP below!
Ghibli, real name Thomas Michael, is a young Edmontonian who produces music to curb his creative ADHD. And while I sympathize with his inability to sit still for prolonged periods of time, I’m thankful that he’s turned his overactive personality into something I can dance to
I liken Ghibli to a master puzzle maker, as he takes samples from various youtube clips to create one cohesive unit. His new EP “Rare Pleasures” is composed of ten musical gems that will either reinforce your love for electronic-dance music or make you reconsider the genre altogether. This bb is going places, for reals.
You can download “Rare Pleasures” here.

Ghibli aka Thomas Michael is an emerging artist from Edmonton.
I first heard about him through the Oh No! Yoko guys (He remixed their track, Go Alien) and have since been very impressed by his music.
Being someone born in the 80’s that grew up on French House / The French Touch it’s always amazing to see younger artist make something fresh and new that was clearly influenced by music that may of come out when they were 8 years old.
Expect big things from this guy. He was also recently featured on Teen Daze’s latest Cultus Vibes: Together compilation with some other great artists / Teen Daze pals.
This track is a Winnie exclusive and is just in time for champagne popping New Years celebrations.
From the highly rec’d free Cultus Vibes: Together compilation
