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.
Here we have another dazzling remix from Vancouver producer 8prn (Jellyfish Recordings/Chapel Sound/Blenheim & Celtic) putting his own spin on the Outkast classic “Roses.” This piece is rhythmically enchanting with a sonically vast atmosphere and a funky energy that bursts at the chorus – bringing on a dance apocalypse.
It truly is fun.

Today is a good day; Vancouver’s own Kieran Fearing has released his debut full length, Reprieve. Inevitably, words fail to capture the essence of music, and they fall especially short in this case. Simply put, Reprieve is phenomenal.
It is beautifully haunted and inextricably tortured. It evokes a phantasm of visions from the dark depths of the mind. Comprised of vocals, piano, keyboards, and a healthy dose of electronics, the line between singer-songwriter and electronic music is walked ambiguously. Comparable to the likes of James Blake, Nicolas Jaar and Thom Yorke insofar as the adept attention to detail and sonic manipulation. A mature artist in his own right, Fearing paired up with Jonathan Scherk (of Plays:four and Flash Palace) to handle the recording and production processes. The strength and breadth of Fearing’s songwriting meets magically with Scherk’s electronic contributions to create a record that is greater than the sum of its parts. Listen to the newest single, ‘Disregard’ below:
Tr0pical Love Connection is back tonight at The Biltmore Cabaret! Joining the TLC DJs is Chapel Sound resident BOHA, doing a special DJ set. Expect lots of moombahton & baile funk. Doors at 11pm tonight after Talent Time. Remember to enter from KINGSWAY!
