Birmingham’s Low Steppa is one of the staple figures of the resurgent UK bass/garage sound that is so ubiquitous right now. Today he dropped Sometimes, a piano-laden two step groove with a classic soul diva sample. Cop it for free and get to struttin.

3 months ago the UK’s Karma Kid gave us an amazing house tune that got airplay almost everywhere, even Maths Time Joy did an amazing remix for it on XLR8R but now we get “Armeria’s Full Of Happiness Edit”. This version of the song besides Math Time’s remix is absolutely perfect, it’ll get you by these hot summer days without a problem. Stream or download the track below!

Since his Kyogi remix Honest has released quality music keeping that garage vibe hes known for, with 2 EP’s under his belt the Texas based producer has expanded to different genre territory and included house into his style. His most recent release is for STRFKR’s single “While I’m Alive” Remix Contest, while the already catchy song Honest gives it his compliments that just take the song somewhere nice and different. If you’re in the Vancouver area STRFKR is coming to Fortune Sound Club July 25th, get tickets at Red Cat Records, Zulu Records or online here. Stream or download the track below and make sure to keep an eye on this cat, follow him on Facebook or Twitter.

British producer Lone is back in the cut. Typically known for his eerie melodies layered over druggy soundscapes, the Nottingham native goes for a decidedly relevant garage flow on his newest release. Synth brass forever.

To experience a performance from Vancouver-based alternative/indie outfit Philoceraptor is to know them.
The first time I caught them live, front man (?) Justin Penney partied his way off a stool and broke some vital bones in his body, prompting tears (allegedly) and an internet apology – this was preceded by an exquisite rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody, acapella, by fellow vocalist Steve Mann. Not to be outdone, human abacus/drummer Phil Jette held the trio together with the stoic responsibility of mayonnaise in a classic BLT.
May Long Weekend is fast approaching us, and what better way to spend your guilt-free Sunday night than at Fortune Sound Club with two rising musical stars.
After a mesmerizing show at Fortune Sound Club last January, electronic-artist Kastle will be returning to Vancouver with Montreal-based sensation Kaytranada on May 19. Kastle’s forward-thinking music results from his long-time love of hip-hop and R&B, fused with the magnetizing effect that garage, house, dubstep and bass-heavy music has had on him. Kastle’s unique fusions will fit nicely with Kaytranada’s modern take on the luscious sounds of 90′s r/b.
This night will also feature performances by local acts 8PRN and Blue Version. While early bird tickets are sold-out, advanced tickets can still be purchased online or in-person at Zulu, Red Cat, Highlife, and Beatstreet recrods.
For a chance to win a pair of tickets, email winnieguestlist(@)gmail.com with your name by Friday, May 17th at 5:00pm. You must be attending the Facebook event page and ‘like‘ Winnie Cooper on Facebook to qualify. 19+ only. Please Use “Long Weekend Contest” as the subject line.
