Local Toronto Producer Shft just released a new banger in collaboration with skeezer titled "feelssoreal". We previously posted his remix of Justin Timberlake. Here's what he had to say about it: Initially we we're moved to try and make the original more of a club tune. Something kinda bmore, something kinda jersey, but with our own industrial flair to it. This is what we came up with. Grabbed the vibe, chopped up pieces we liked that worked to get that club feel out of it and just added our...

Halsey (aka Ashley Nicolette Frangipane), the new considered pop star who doesn't necessarily make pop music, just dropped the very-anticipated music video for her hit "New Americana." The song, which is seen as an anthem describing today's youth with unfortunately cheesy lyrics, is featured, along with her very first single "Ghost," on her debut LP, Badlands, which was released last month. Halsey, who just ditched her signature blue hair for some blond ambition style (...

The latest release from Australian resident SUIIX (pronounced Soo-ie), has got us daydreaming. Her single "Alright" is nothing short of feel-good music for those with good imagination. Taken from her forthcoming debut EP, the track embodies a similar sense of nostalgia with its psychedelic dream-pop textures and intricate use of instrumentation in this laidback and rose-water-soaked, vocal layered follow up to her very popular 2014 release "Hi".

Currently on tour in Europe, Dralms shares a new video for the album's title track, directed by singer Christopher Smith himself. Much like his curated instagram account, he approaches video making with an eye for clean-lined minimalistic modern art and sparse iconography.

Les Passagers is a Montreal synth-pop band that got picked out of thousands of applicants for a once in a lifetime opportunity. They got the chance to visit Los Angeles and record two tracks at the iconic Sunset Studios in part of The Converse Rubber Tracks Pop-Up program. I was lucky enough to get the chance to follow Andréanne, Nicolas, Antoine, Francois-Pierre and Keven on their journey in the studio. The Converse Rubber Tracks Pop-Up program was born out of the brand’s desire to give back...

You might recognize his name from being on the production credits for Heartstreet's track "Not Around" which we covered when it first came out.
