Electric Wire Hustle (New Zealand, BBE Records)
Developing their own sound and twist on modern hip hop, psychedelic and soul Electric Wire Hustle’s unique sound challenges genre boundaries and preconceptions. The music of New Zealand’s EWH reaches forward while referencing key points of music’s past. Thick drums and percussion layered with synth lines, hints of the Fender Rhodes and nylon stringed guitars have your neck snapping while your ear cranes to the evocative vocals of Mara TK.
“Quite simply this is the best, most exciting R&B, soul, electronica, whatever you want to call it, record I’ve heard this year.” – Okayplayer.com
Lexis (Dj Set)
For 5 years now, the Music Is My Sanctuary site, with DJ Lexis on the decks, has been dedicated to seeking out future classics and forgotten treasures from all rhythmic horizons. The eclectic DJ, real name Alexis Charpentier, regales listeners with carefully sought-out pieces destined for the pantheon of cherished musical gems. On the menu: rhythm, rhythm, rhythm to burn, bouncing between hip hop, jazz, electronica, reggae, house, soul and funk. Sooo good!
The Goods (10th Anniversary Set!)
Celebrating 10 years as the city’s best kept secret and favourite all-out dance party, The Goods was started in August of 2002 by resident DJs Scott C and Andy Williams to provide a warm alternative to the average Montreal night out. Driven by dedicated musical selections by Scott and Andy, The Goods mandate has always been great music, whether it’s known, forgotten, or yet to be discovered, welcoming local, international DJs and live bands into the magic room at La Sala Rosa each and every month. With one musical foot planted firmly in the past, and the other steadily moving forward, guests are encouraged to embrace the always enthusiastic Goods audience with an eclectic, open format approach. Future sounds share the spotlight with funk, jazz, hip hop, Afro-latin and Brazillian offerings, cementing The Goods as the home of soulful dance-floor movements in Montreal.
