Known as Kanye West's Chicago protegé, Kid Sister started MC'ing at electro-duo Flosstradamus' infamous monthly parties back in 2005. Her endlessly quotable lines, flamboyantly party-driven charisma, and pioneering electro-rap sound soon gained her a national profile and spawned legions of imitators. She was signed by Montreal native A-Trak to his Fool’s Gold label and together they released her first single, "Pro Nails," featuring a cameo from Kanye himself. Her first album Ultraviolet featured work from such acclaimed producers as XXXChange, Sinden, and Rusko. The last few years have seen Kid Sister hitting the road relentlessly and perfecting her international blend of hip hop credibility and flamboyant party-rocking.

This young lyricist from Harlem, NYC was discovered by XL Recordings and signed onto their label alongside Vampire Weekend, The White Stripes, Adele and M.I.A. Now prepping her debut album, Azealia is working on fresh ways to craft her own sound and let people see what all the buzz about Miss Banks is about.

Igloofest 2011 Preview

A common rebuttal by those fatigued and jealous of Montrealer's constant evangelizing on the vibrancy and community of their home is the assertion that the island goes dead during the brutal winter months. If that's truly how the rest of the world sees the city, consider Igloofest Montreal's extended middle finger, an outdoors electronic music fest that shows a joie de vivre in subzero temperatures most cities couldn't manage in perfect conditions. With too many acts to count packed into the fest's three weekends, here's our guide to what's worth seeing.

Week 1

Thursday, Jan. 13:

Start the fest off easy and pace it right by checking out Rilly Guilty at the Virgin Mobile Igloo at 8.

Saturday, Jan. 15:

Saturday night definitely has the heaviest concentration of Montreal's own sons and daughters and it's probably the night we're most excited about. For a constant stream of Montreal's best artists, start the night at the Main Stage to catch the Night Trackin DJs' 6:30 set, then head over to the Igloo for SHAYdakiss & A-Rock's set at 8, before sprinting back to the Main Stage at 9 for Lunice's epic swagfest.

Egyptrixx

Week 2

Thursday, Jan. 20:

The smart move is to sharpen your elbows and mob the Main Stage for all the night's best shows. Kid Sister, Terror Danjah, and Eskmo will definitely be worth staking out some valuable territory.

Friday, Jan. 21:

One of Igloofest's absolute-can't-miss-shows is Toronto native and Night Slugs warrior Egyptrixx. Do whatever you can to be front and center at his 8:00 Main Stage set.

Saturday, Jan. 22:

The shows at Igloofest don't run too late, but MTL native Hatchmatik's 10:00 Igloo set ought to capture the late night loft aesthetic to a T.

Ikonika

Week 3

Thursday, Jan. 27:

The safe bet for a great show is to stake out the Main Stage all night for Jordan Dare and the legend Carl Craig. Those more daring, or perhaps desperate for a change of scenery, might take a chance on venturing to Robyn's 10:00 show at Metropolis. Either way, there are no losers at Igloofest.

Friday, Jan. 28:

Let it never be said that fest isn't going out swinging. Once again, stake out the Main Stage all night for climactic sets by Ikonika and MTL's natural born riddim killer, Poirier. Miss any part of the night at your own peril.
