Big welcome home to the homie Lunice, who's just coming off a whirlwind of European and Australian dates that followed our Pop Montreal show with Araabmbuzik in September. We caught up with Lunice before his set to rap about his new EP, One Hunned, his collabo with Ango and Prison Garde: Nouveau Palais, and whats next for the local producer turned globetrotter.
Lunice catches a couple days at home before heading out on a final tour of 2011, across the U.S. & Canada in November. Hats off to Montreal's finest young son. Get it! One Hunned.
Current darling of blogs and bootie-shakers alike, Azaelia Banks is on a one way ticket to the top right now. We caught up with her after she wowed the crowd with rapid fire raps at our Pop Montreal 2011 show. Away from the stage it's clear that beneath her exuberant persona lies a remarkably humble and self-effacing character for someone so talented.

He may only be 22 years-old but Araabmuzik is already heading up a new breed of producers boldly reshaping the boundaries of hip-hop and its influences. Originally from Providence, Rhode Island, Abraham Orellana developed a rabid following through a series of online videos showcasing his impossibly nimble touch on an MPC drum machine. He was signed by DukeDaGod to Diplomat Records and flourished as the label’s “secret weapon”, crafting hits and hood classics alike for Cam’ron, Juelz Santana and Jim Jones, culminating with his role producing Dipset’s triumphant reunion song, “Salute.” His debut album Electronic Dream, an explosive take on the pristine textures of dance music, has been met with glowing reviews and his live performances are already a thing of developing legend. Beyond the insane MPC calisthenics, it’s his instinct for genre-shattering bombast that makes Araabmuzik one of the only producers alive with the ability to dominate a crowd by himself.
Born and raised in Montreal, this b-boy turned producer is one of our local treasures gone global. Lunice’s infamous live shows toy with the entire concept of what performing electronic music can be. The term 'DJ set' doesn’t nearly do it justice; with his exuberantly charismatic stage persona, his shows become immersive experiences for everyone involved. Since collaborating with Diplo on a remix of Deerhunter's “Helicopter,” Lunice has been getting more involved with the Major Lazer producer’s Mad Decent label family, playing across the U.S. at their notorious annual Block Party, as well as a raucous show at MoMA’s P.S.1 Warm-Up party. His latest EP, titled One Hunned, just dropped on LuckyMe.

The heat in the streetz brought by Dipset's reunion can largely be attributed to beats made by Dipset super-producer Araab Muzik. Since the Dominican/Guatemalan producer met Dipset's chief of A&R, Duke Da God in 2006, he has been racking up hood classics, lacing The Dips with “We All Up in Here,” “Ric Flair,” “Pop Off,” and “I Used Get It In Ohio.” None of the songs the Rhode Island native has produced means more to New York than “Salute,” which features Cam’ron, Jim Jones, and Juelz Santana together again.
Production, yes. DIPSET. Even more insane is how he murders the MPC live. Araab uniquely samples sounds from trance, metal, opera, & classical genres, forming an energy that can't be captured by the countless YouTube videos showcasing his "finger-banging" ability.
Montreal's proudest young son is another super-producer who's YouTube legacy ain't nothing to f-with. Lunice has been destined for the main stage since the early days of Turbo Crunk, Montreal's premier bass night. After collaborating with Diplo, Lunice released the 'Stacker Upper EP' on Scottish label LuckyMe, turning heads in North American, Europe, and beyond. This just in: Lunice just announced a new EP forthcoming on the label. Yes!

Lunice Fermin Pierre II has taken over the asylum! In little over a year, he's taken hold of the electronic beats scene across Canada and the US, and set ears and heads ablaze with his mixture of beats, bass, and splintered electronica. Taking cues from Warp, Bangladesh, Dilla, and Ed Banger, Lunice knows exactly how to craft a recipe that makes dance floors bump and bass bins thump. With remixes forthcoming on Big Dada, Young Turks and a solo EP on LuckyMe, Lunice will be conducting the sound of clubland for a long time to come.
Check out one of his RBMA Radio mixes and an interview below!
Hey Lunice, can you tell us a little about yourself?
I'm 22, from Montreal, Quebec and I love rap music.
Congrats on the release of the Stacker Upper EP on LuckyMe Records. What made you want to release this EP?
Thanks! Releasing my first solo EP was one of my biggest goals since day one. I've always had the idea of releasing an EP. I felt that I wouldn't work on it until I feel that I'm ready and that the sound I'm experimenting on at that moment would make sense for a release. Now my next goal is to release another record!
You are so energetic on stage, not to mention your fancy footwork in LunicexLAZERSWORDS Gucci Sweatshirt . Do you feel live producers / DJs should look to become performers on stage?
Not really. Producers & DJs should do whatever seems to fit for their set. I never intended to "perform" on stage, it just sort of happened after numerous alcoholic drinks and me going in front wildin' out with the crowd and having the time of my life, haha. I guess since I used to be a full-time B-Boy/dancer, I was naturally able to do cool moves which to me seemed like "whatever, I'm drunk" dancing, but to people it seemed like "whoa cool moves!". I'm used to performing infront of crowds at breakdance shows,so I've gotten used to sending a certain type of energy to the crowd and having them respond back in the same way.
Check out the remainder of the interview over at Red Bull.

LOOKOUT & Red Bull Music Academy Present:
Tuesday, March 8th
LE BELMONT, 4483 St. Laurent
It's application time! In support of this years Academy, alumni Ango (Montreal) and Lunice (Montreal), both from LuckyMe Records, will be co-heading the Red Bull Music Academy Canadian Tour Destination Tokyo (co-presented by Exclaim.ca), featuring PrisonGarde (Vancouver) and Nautiluss (Toronto). Preceding each show is an intimate look at the Academy and its application process through essions hosted by mymanhenri. Attendees will also have an exclusive opportunity to enter a remix contest, with submissions hosted on Exclaim.ca, and the winner taking home a $1K gift certificate to Moog Audio. No Academy day would be complete without a proper party, which starts at 10pm right after the workshop.
Prison Garde is the latest incarnation of electronic music monolith Vaughn Robert Squire. A man of many monikers and creative outlets, with a well celebrated history that spans multiple eras and genres of music (as Megasoid, Sixtoo,Villain Accelerate and S&N to name a few projects), Prison Garde spends his nights these days pumping out deep twerked warehouse music of all tempos.
Formerly of Thunderheist, Nautiluss has refocused and reloaded his plan of attack, providing dark, diabolical tracks somewhere between house, techno, and evil space disco. The perfect soundtrack for a flight over international waters.
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 released a debut EP on LuckyMe, played two European tours, and attended the Red Bull Music Academy 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.
Tickets are $8 and will be available online and at the following locations:
MOOG Audio - 3828 St-Laurent
Off The Hook - 1021 Ste Catherine Ouest
Atom Heart - 364, Rue Sherbrooke Est
