The biggest weekly party on St Laurent is kicking off 2011 with #BANGURZ. A truly all-star cast of Montreal's incredible producers is poised to show you what the future is all about.
Lunice is is poised to bring his infectious hybrid of hyphy/turbo-crunk/jerk/boom-bap to a much, much wider audience. Between an upcoming tour with fellow MTLien Jacques Greene, a collaboration with Diplo, and the imminent release of his "Stacker Upper" EP on LuckyMe, Lunice is keeping himself busy.
A star to watch in the lazer bass galaxy. As half of the Mofomatronix DJ outfit, Montreal’s Philippe Aubin-Dionne was a fixture behind the decks at early Turbo Crunk parties, alongside Megasoid. As Hovatron, he went solo and evolved from DJ to producer/musician, fusing epic synths with beats to bomb the dancefloor. After a pair of mixtapes and a digital EP, Hovatron made his way to wax this year on his debut single “Gold Star Radiation,” backed by “Let's Get Wet.”

The season's are changing and autumn is upon us, which means POP Montreal is sweeping through the city to keep us all busy with seemingly endless sensory stimulation. To celebrate the occasion, Grahamzilla, former producer for Thunderheist (RIP), will be gracing the turntables at Tokyo Bar with a funky set filled with bangers on Thursday, September 30, 2010. To sample this beat doctor's steez, check out his "summer's almost gone mix." The mix is an ode to the yesterdays of beaches, bbq's, and bronze bodies. The tracklist is below...

Tokyo Thursday Winter '10 Mixtape by Truspin.
Truspin is Montreal's hardest working DJ. He holds down the weekly madness in the mainroom at Tokyo Thursdays (AND Fridays) as well as his own night, Le Spank at Blue Dog Motel, Saturdays. He's unquestionably one of the most talented, experienced, and versatile DJs in Montreal. Truspin dropped this mix just in time to give us a clip of his tastemaking ability before competing in this years Red Bull 3style competition this friday at Telus Theatre. This mix is just how we like it, electronic, dancy, but tasteful. Perfect pre-gaming music. There is no hard electro. No sirens. No brain wrenching distortion. Just blissfull sounds. Thanks for a perfect set of tasteful electro-pop!

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 - email@example.com
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.
