One of the main reasons for this website is to see local artists grow and succeed in their craft, we first shared Pomo‘s work because Kaytranada gave us a taste of his first songs after the first couple of times he played in Vancouver. Since then Pomo has signed with HW&W along with great label mates like Kaytranada, Stwo, Sweater Beats, Ta-Ku among several others. If you didn’t know Pomo is short for Port Moody which is where he’s from, now he’s located in Montreal where it seems to be the Canadian beat music mecca. David Pimentel aka Pomo draws from several different genres and influences bending elements of Hip-Hop, Electronic and Funk into his own solid sound that stands on it’s own. For Pomo’s recent release of his debut EP The Other Day he’s back in his home town and having the release party at Fortune Sound Club this Friday! Not only are we getting Pomo but New York’s Saint Pepsi will be co-headlining as well along with locals Sadgirl, Kalibo & Cam Jennings.
