  • 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!

Go ape with The Monkey Bunch on Febru-Hairy 1st, 8th, 16th (Family Day) and 22nd at the Drake Underground.

  • SINKANE
    It’s soul music! And truly universal; uniting rhythm and styles from our world over to help you move, relate and be, Sinkane’s Mean Love rolls like an emotional, existential history of the artist. Co-produced with long-time Sinkane collaborator and childhood friend Greg Lofaro, Ahmed Gallab has created an altogether unique compound of sound, stylistically nostalgic and ultramodern at the same time. From Gallab’s childhood in Sudan there is a Pan-African influence of popular Sudanese music and haqibah, as well as distinct horn and synth arrangements more common to East Africa. This background merges with the lessons learned from Ahmed‘s stints with obsessive craftsmen such as Caribou, Yeasayerand Of Montreal, and especially the monumental task he underwent as musical director of‘ATOMIC BOMB! The Music of William Onyeabor.’ Gallab excavated and arranged a treasure trove of lost classics from the West African synth-pioneer to put together a now legendary series of performances. Alongside his band-mates in Sinkane (jaytram on drums, Ish Montgomery on bass, Jonny Lam on guitar), he also brought on guests Damon Albarn, David Byrne, The Lijadu Sisters, Money Mark and members of Hot Chip,LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture, and Blood Orange.

    Ben Stevenson's release "Dirty Laundry" was nominated for "R&B/Soul Recording of the Year" for The JUNO Awards 2015.

    Music has the power to create that feeling of collective experience. You feel the pain, the joy, or just delight in it. You feel it in your guts. My greatest passion is performing and my goal is to stay connected with the music and relay that to people. A shared experience, a multitude of reactions to the same thing, surrendering to something beyond us. When people can be in a studio and do this it’s true collaboration. This is the most inspiring, beautiful creative experience. Working with incredible people like Boi-1da, Vinylz, Nathan “Happy” Perez (Multi-Platinum and Grammy-Nominated super-producer), or August Rigo ego is laid aside, allowing both the natural intuition to be our guide and the inspiration to shine through. These moments have led to my upcoming debut EP release “Dirty Laundry”, a tale of dealing with and overcoming personal struggle that I believe are relatable to all people. To sum it up, Music is so challenging that I feel any project I do will only be a reflection of the state of “becoming” that I feel I will always be in. I can only hope that people connect with both the lyrics and the sounds. Words by: Ben Stevenson
