We’re quite excited for Vancouver producer James Deen and his recent success, since hosting him at Winnie Cooper & Friends he has received several shows, coverage from big blogs and an overall love from the city. His latest offering “An Unwritten Love Letter To Summer Roberts” really shows his production only getting better yet still having the unique sound we all fell in love with from this young producer. Help out James with voting for his project on storyhive.com which would back up a music video for his last track “huskydoggetsheadmassagemp3” and catch him at his I Appreciate U EP release party on the 30th at 303 Columbia.

Brand new original material from 21 year old Vancouver producer, On Planets.

Los Angeles singer/songwriter Chelsea Lankes follows up last month’s hit single “Down For Whatever” with “Too Young To Fall In Love,” a cover of one of Mötley Crüe’s forgotten cuts. Lankes explains the inspiration behind her tribute: “I’ve always been a fan of the 80s and hair metal. So many lyrics and melodies, dressed up a little differently, can still become great pop songs.”
