Mary Anne Hobbs @ Lambi

Fresh from the success of her first ever film soundtrack design for Darren Aronofsky's Oscar winning Black Swan, Mary Anne Hobbs returns to Montréal at Club Lambi on the 29th April.

"The undisputed first lady of bass" (XLR8R) can ride any motorcylce you put in front of her, but is most reknowned for breaking new electronic music on the world stage. For 14 years Hobbs worked for Britain's BBC Radio 1, hosting an influential experimental music show that drew widespread attention to dubstep, grime, bass music and other underground electronic genres. Last summer Hobbs announced that she was leaving Radio 1 to start her new position as Media Development Coordinator at Sheffield University and continues to tour her selector skills around the world.

Mary Anne Hobbs will appear with Montréal-based experimental noise makers Meat Parade & The Gulf Stream as well as Lookout's resident DJ, Rilly Guilty & DJ Lexis.

Ramadanman + Zed Bias @ Club Lambi

Lookout & Music Is My Sanctuary present:

aka Pearson Sound (UK)

Ramadanman has been at the forefront of dubstep’s avant-garde for several years now, with his Hessle Audio imprint bringing the world groundbreaking cuts from the likes of TRG, Pangaea, Untold, and a certain James Blake, while his own percussive, electrifying music has graced the likes of Soul Jazz, 2nd Drops, Apple Pips, Monkeytown, Bpitch, and more; “Void 23,” Ramadanman’s collab with Appleblim, cut across the bass, house, and techno scenes to become one of last year’s biggest underground tunes. He is also the latest artist to provide a mix for the crucial FabricLive series...

aka Maddslinky (UK)

Zed Bias, meanwhile, has been twisting up heads for over a decade; his “Neighbourhood” remains one of UK garage’s most enduring classics, and his “Dark Swing” (recorded as Maddslinky) is a touchstone of the “nu dark swing” era. Both tracks were showcased on 2000’s Sound of the Pirates, a mix that perfectly summed up the sound of UK garage at the turn of the millennium and helped pave the way for the dubstep mutations to follow. More recently, he’s been ramping up his activities again with releases and remixes on Development Music, Compost, and Hospital Records.

Check the Interview Lookout ran with Machinedrum a while back - Travis Stewart is a man of many aliases and identities.

Following his Many Faces of Machinedrum EP with LuckyMe he released another sequence of tracks caught full of his manic, stylistically fluctuating realms suspended somewhere between the club, the dusty basement hip hop studio, and the insane asylum. Check out the new release "Let It" and try to get on his level before he fogs up Club Lambi this Friday, February 11 for the LuckyMe Label Showcase:

DOWNLOAD: Cubic Zirconia Remix EP

To be fully prepared for Cubic Zirconia's live show this Friday, February 11 at Club Lambi, it'd be best to grab hold of the new EP of remixes their label LuckyMe recently made available for free online.

Frontman Nick Hook calls his group "live ethnic disco," but reworkings from club stalwarts Egyptrixx and Ikonika and left field G-Synth master Dam Funk spread and/or skewer the sound all over the dance music spectrum. The remixes come in advance of the NYC four-piece's upcoming album Follow Your Heart.

LuckyMe Showcase

LOOKOUT, LuckyMe & Dirty Gold present:

After an incredibly breakthrough 2009 that saw the massive critical and popular success of Hudson Mohawke, Rustie and Mike Slott with releases on Warp, All City and more, it seemed unlikely that Glaswegian label LuckyMe could top the level of excitement in the year to follow. However in the last year, they've expanded the label worldwide, adding several North American acts that have become some of the most talked about in the electronic music world, including Jacques Greene, Lunice, Ango, Machinedrum, and Cubic Zirconia. On February 11th, all of this monumental talent will be on display under Club Lambi's roof.

ANGO (Live)

Cubic Zirconia

Seriously, this band will destroy your club, your concernt hall, your living room. It's acid inflected pop music that hints towards a tradition of great new york loft parties and the vacious structure of punk bands like ESG and Liquid Liquid. But you know, Cubic's music is more than that. It's not trying to be anything else than Nick Hook, Tiombe Lockhart & Daud Sturdivant going in as hard as they can. I mean, what shall we call it? We have to call it something -- that's the way of music journalism. Let's go for ethnic disco.



New label mate Machinedrum will be present as well, riding off his stellar new releases on LuckyMe and on Hotflush as his new garage/future dubstep project Sepalcure. With a combination of the songwriting skills of Timbaland, the huge club sounds of Daft Punk and the crafty experimentation of Aphex Twin, Machinedrum will take us all on quite the musical ride.


Jacques Greene

Jacques Greene hails from Montreal, Canada, and you may or may not have heard some music he made under a previous guise. It doesn't really matter. His current focus is glistening house music with the perfect balance of reverence and idiosyncrasy, and an unashamed devotion to R'n'B. Releases with LuckyMe and NightSlugs have announced his arrival in the house music world in fine style, and hint at a pretty good year to come.



Lunice is just THAT dude. So cool, so easy. But at night he’s a monster making bedroom dance videos to Footcrab and Sex Intelligent (remix stoopid). It was just over a year ago that Lunice started bumping his own beats at the Turbo Crunk nights. To think that he’s since played two European tours and attended Red Bull in London, cheeeez, Dude is doing those big things already.



Joining Montreal's community of influential DJs and Producers, this R&B beat maker has just begun to do his part to help rebuild the landscape of alternative dance music in North America. Ango's music is uniquely melodic and hopeful, bringing boogie-era synth and drum sounds into context with contemporary R&B bangers, electro and bass music.
