Atlanta native Adam Alexander aka Demo Taped caught our attention with his first EP Heart, a cohesive 3-track project that stood out from the rest of the music being highlighted in the “ATL”. What left a strong impression from his music is the maturity his topics and sound are covering, coming from an 18 year old who opens up in a way some people will never achieve. His following tracks “Not Enough” and “Game On” were a growth that caught everyone’s attention and highlighted some touchy subjects about depression and dealing with what life throws at you and how you deal with it. We chatted with the young musician a day before his show at the Imperial opening for Wet, check out our brief interview below.
WC: How has it been supporting acts such as Nao & Wet on tour?
DT: Everyone is really nice and i’m having a good time performing, seeing people from different cities. I’ve never toured the states before so this a new experience for me.
WC: So, you’re 18 years old. How did you balance high school with your musical career?
DT: I actually finished it a year earlier than the rest of my peers and i didn’t really have to. Once the music thing started happening I kind of just set my sights on finishing school and had enough time to do this full time.
WC: We loved your first remix for Bridget Mendler, will you be doing anymore?
DT: Thank you, yeah I got a remix that i’ve been working on the road and i’m really excited. That Bridget Mendler remix was really fun to work on and it’s always fun to create something a little bit different for a song.
WC: All your previous work was by yourself then came the collaborations with Karma Kid and RKCB, how did that come about?
DT: I had been in touch with Karma Kid’s management before, I actually got to meet him before; we played a show together when I went to London and that was really cool getting to see him live where he’s from. For RKCB I went out to LA for work a little while ago, we actually went into the studio and finished the track pretty much that day. We finished the main part of the track that day which was pretty cool to get ideas flowing like that.
WC: With that being said, what would be your dream collaboration?
DT: Ohhh man, my dream collaboration would be MF Doom. I think that would be really crazy one and very fun.
WC: What are your thoughts on making/putting music out from such a rap dense scene in Atlanta?
DT: It’s weird sometimes. Atlanta is my hometown, but a lot of the people I talk to that like my music live in other places. It’s cool though. I love rap and I’ll always love Atlanta.
WC: What’s next for Demo Taped?
DT: I’m working on another EP and also on my album, really just trying to experiment as much as possible and putting in as much work as possible to creating a good solid body of work.

We’ve had our eye on Alberta based artist HERO for little over a year now and we’re glad we kept an eye on him, he’s grown with his sound and seems to have found comfort in different styles while still delivering quality content. The 5-track project VHS POP showcases a diverse electronic driven playground that proves he has much more to bring to the table than just “bangers”. Stream or purchase VHS POP below!
Vancouver duo SO LOKI continue to improve and carve their own sound with their latest single “Birthday” having all the unique elements we fell in love with in the first place. We highly suggest checking out their upcoming live shows, stream or purchase below.
Alberta based artist Hero has shown his diverse sound this year but his new track “The Juice” delivers a surprising 80’s nostalgic Pop sound and we’re highly digging it. His latest project VHSPOP EP is coming out soon, stream below.
At only 20 years of age, EDEN (real name Jonathon Ng) is making music with the emotional vulnerability of someone twice his age. He graduated High School a few years ago, but sings as though he thoroughly understands the politics of love and heartbreak.
Formerly known as The Eden Project, Ng changed his moniker in 2015 after a transition in musical styles. While this can be tricky for any emerging artist, the new alias seems to be working for him. He’s now signed with Scooter Braun, the man known for making Bieber, and has created a sound that mixes pop sensibilities with deeply poetic lyrics and dark melodic beats.
His highly anticipated EP, i think you think too much of me, is out early next month and already houses two hit singles, “sex” and “drugs”. If you wanna be transported into a world of pure sonic bliss, press play. I dare you. This kid, I mean young adult, really is future bound.
EDEN makes his Vancouver debut on September 7 at the Rio Theatre. Get your tickets here.
