  • 8.3 | Best New Music -PITCHFORK

    "If they had a Mercury prize in the States, this would be on the shortlist" -THE GUARDIAN

    "...bass ripples soothingly, sun-warped synths flicker out and make your hair stand on end, drones hum and shiver, and drums chatter like teeth... Hundred Waters' members make music to burrow deep into to obsess over." -NPR

    "Hundred Waters’s own art-rock is rhapsodic and mercurial: pointillistic or gauzy, meditative or dramatic, near-jazzy or quasi-classical, a percussion workout or a rock processional." -NEW YORK TIMES

  • Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches.

    Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!

  • Forming in 2010, Casey MQ, Jonathan Milner, Miles Gibbons, Alexei Orechin and Kamilah Apong ventured into the depths of Casey’s basement. They made their way back out by becoming Unbuttoned, creating music that was a fresh alternative - funky sounds of R&B and Pop, supported by undertones of hip hop and electronica. Their music has challenged the tunnel vision of genre labels and highlights the beauty of crossover music.

    Unbuttoned spends their time crafting their album Casey’s MQ self-made Level Me Studios. Their debut EP Electric Kingdom, released independently in North America and through P-Vine Records in Japan, received attention and guidance from both Kevin Killen (Grammy award winning engineer/producer) and the late John Carter (Capital Records). "Casey's development as a unique songwriter has been evident to me for the last six years. With his latest collaboration – the beautifully crafted "Unbuttoned - Electric Kingdom" Casey delivers a seven song EP that is magical, innovative and belies his age as a songwriter. Ones to watch”, says Killen.

    Unbuttoned’s movements have not gone unnoticed across the globe, receiving attention and airplay from various media outlets in Poland, Spain, and Germany, as well as CBC's Jian Ghomeshi. Unbuttoned plans to expand even more so with their upcoming sophomore release, “planes”, available June 24th, 2014.
