  • DJ NaNa believes that the art of Turntablism is a science. The same precision and dedication scientists put into research and experiments, is what NaNa is known for putting into his own artform. His influences range from the common (Wu Tang Clan, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z). to the not so obvious (Zamfir, Portishead, Lamb, Fleetwood Mac), and everything else in between. A true music connoisseur, his knowledge of diverse genres of music is almost as impressive as his knack for combining them.

  • FOXTROTT is the vibrant musical project of MH Delorme – a self-taught singer, songwriter and beatmaking force from Montreal. With her debut EP Shields, she landed on the indie-pop scene with an emotionally arresting three-track offering, and has since paved a smooth road as a bona fide talent to watch.

    Hailing from an extended musical family, this third-generation Montrealer has cultivated a lifelong relationship with music that dates back to piano and violin lessons as a child, but her personal discovery of hip hop, reggae, and electronic music led her to pursue production, playing a large part in shaping her musical DNA and crafting a unique sound with all these elements.

    With a songwriting and production style that is at once soothing and very direct, FOXTROTT shows a deft hand for warm melodies, beefy bass lines and layered percussions- striking the perfect balance between courage and vulnerability. Her rich sound, full of emotional textures and introspective rhythms, is imbued with an unmistakably cinematic feel- the result of a professional background in sound engineering and film scoring. FOXTROTT’s powerful pop compositions draw us in with their disarming lyrical honesty and melodies, her vocals shifting from darkness to the light without a stutter.

  • 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!
