Well, it’s finally time to tell you about a project we’ve been involved in for a couple months now. We are helping put together a documentary on the on the very inspiring beat scene we have in Montreal these days. It’s called “PIU PIU: Exploring the Montreal Beat Scene” A project led by two MIMS collaborators: Philippe Sawicki and Aisha Vertus but done with the collaboration of a lot of people in the Montreal music scene, people like Sevdee, Scott C, Poirier, Maxime Robin, the Alaiz crew to name a few.
It’s a short documentary that will take a look at some of the key players in the Montreal scene. Sadly, we didn’t have enough time to feature absolutely everyone but I guess that will be for Volume 2. We don’t have the pretention of being able to tell the whole story, we simply want to provide a snapshot of a scene we all love! The launch of the project will be on June 8th as we combine forces with the good folks at ARTBEAT MONTREAL to do a big throwdown with over 10 live performances and a very special guest! Our good friend ONRA! (Event Link)
So… until then, we have the perfect treat for you. A free compilation featuring 16 tracks of mostly unreleased tracks from Kenlo, Kaytradamus, Maxime Robin, Dr. MaD, and so on…
June 8th @ Cabaret Underworld
