All winter we look forward to the twice-a-summer happening when our friends and favorite DJs get together in the sunshine and have an afternoon BBQ on the roof of one of Montreal's established clubs. The one and only Mike Silver, more prolifically known as CFCF, is one of the amazing folks that we've been blessed to have as a part of this annual ritual for the last three years now. This set was recorded live at the BBQ on June 9, 2012 and is a renewed testament to how special and ffun this tradition has become.

Dance Party at Pop Montreal.
On Thursday, September 22, in association with Pop Montreal, Red Bull & Nudie Jeans, LOOKOUT proudly presents a gloriously stacked dance party.
The evening begins with our friends from the Evening Standard nights at The Drake Hotel, who have graciously procured a prime trinity of classic dance music selectors, including residents MEMBERSONLY, and Montreal comrads CFCF, and Seb Diamond.
The main course is an American-sized serving of New York disco and house whipped up to a froth by the ordained apostles of seminal NYC label DFA Records. The vivid yet vulnerable charisma of Kim Ann Foxman (Hercules & Love Affair) sparks magnificently against the stoic restraint of disco maestro Prince Language, the evening all the while glistening and churning along with the support of prodigal label magnate Charles Damga (UNO) and Montreal’s own Hardest Working Man on Clark Street, Guilty. This evening flows from 9-3 A.M. and we recommend not missing a single second.

Two of Canada's up and coming electronic producers unite from the far ends of the Great White North in the name of two words: CHOP and SCREW. On October 1st at Il Motore, BABE RAINBOW (Warp Records, Vancouver) and CFCF (Paper Bag/Acephale/RVNG, Montreal) will slow things down to a glacial, sensual pace for the haziest party at Pop Montreal. Though they may not have much in common stylistically, the former of the dubby, dark warehouse glitch-hop, and the latter of the balearic, melancholic house and pop, these two knob-twiddlers will come together in tribute to a great forefather: DJ SCREW. Rap, r&b, pop, rock, you name it--nothing will escape the syrup slow sensation. 11:30 to 3 N' the Mornin.
The Fader posted our local hero and Cloud9 resident's new remix track today. This is one for your darker moments, but lets not forget Mike will make your toes twinkle, in the club. Make sure to check out Fader's review, and get the track (link below).
Every Thursday in the (side)room at Tokyo.
Its all about good music. Not club music. Good Music. Rock and dance music. Brought to you by residents Jonn Webb ( the owner of Montreal gems Korova, Blizzarts, and Sparrow ) + CFCF.
CFCF /// http://myspace.com/cfcf
CFCF aka Mike Silver is a local montreal producer whos making it big. get his new album "Continent" out now on Paper Bag Records and definitely listen to his music on his MySpace. He also is a fun DJ, playing good music at sweaty rock shows, Green Room, and heaven.
Its spacious, its lovely, its dancey, its simple...AND its free if you RSVP - firstname.lastname@example.org
Putting on CFCF’s debut album, Continent, I’m aurally transported to a decadent and deluded era when the DeLorean was still in production, Michael Jackson was still black, and about 75% of New Yorkers had a monthly coke habit expensive enough to pay for my entire 4-year college tuition. The Montreal DJ/ remix-er has created an electro album infused with a rhythmic spirit reminiscent of early 80’s disco and house music, while layering it with hazy motifs. The album opens stoically with “Raining Patterns”, a dreamy track layered with catchy synth lines, cascading piano, and a pumping dance beat that reminds me of early M83. The character of the first song resembles that of the rest of the album in that the sound washes over the listener, who can’t help but drift in and out of a trance-like state. My personal favorite off of the album is “Invitation to Love,” which embodies the sounds of neon lights at night, exuding atmospheric chords, luscious bass lines, and decadent handclaps. I recommend bumping this shit while prowling the city at night. While the songs may not necessarily be very radio friendly (7 of the 13 tracks clock in at over 6 minutes), the album, for me, as a whole, captures a pervading sentiment among youth that epically cheesy synths are not a fad of the past, but the way of the future. The album dropped October 27 on Paper Bag Records, so go out and get it now and don't forget to drop by Cloud9, the sideroom special at Tokyo Thursdays to peep this dude's live DJ steez...its radical.
Note on the night: Great Concert but bummer in the summer.
Although they wanted to party, Health had to jet canada quick after the show because the RCMP was after them for turning right on red on the island of montreal. Next time.
Hope you're ready for another bangin' Sundae at the Dog. This week's Banana Split is bringing the heat with DJ sets from the demented musical minds of HEALTH and CFCF
HEALTH have been getting mad love on blogs all across the world ever since Crystal Castles dropped one of the catchiest remixes in recent times of their song "Crimewave" and are only melting more faces on their sophmore album Get Color. Thankfully, HEALTH show no sign of slowing down and are adding fuel to dance-floors everywhere with stunning songs like "Die Slow" and "Before Tigers". The remixes take already danceable songs and bring them to new hip-shaking heights with poppy touches added by the likes of CFCF. HEALTH are coming to Blue Dog after their show on Sunday at La Sala Rossa to party and bullshit and will be deftly spinning bangers through the night.
