We’ve been playing these three tracks for a couple weeks now in clubs and radio shows and loved this new EP so much that we asked our good friend Moonstarr to share the backstory on his fantastic new EP out now on New Kanada Records.
Moonstarr: “Took me a couple of years before I got Adam Marshall to bite on demo beats for his New Kanada imprint. I’ve been a fan of his work since the 90s in TDOT and his label featured Canadian producers so I had to step up and get on his radar. Finally after sending a large random batch of demos he picked some surprises. Jump steady was an edit of a hip hop track I was working on last year.
Frustration creeped into the creation process so I gave up and pushed the bpms and volume till it was bumping. Never expected it to come out. Metropolitan was inspired partly by TAZZ’s deep productions on Underground Quality as well as those late night drives across one of our notorious highways. Highs and lows continues on my ILL Harmonics deep and moody themes.
All production is done in Ableton Live with some external synths (Korg Radias, Moog MG-1,Access Virus B) and lots of samples. The title is a tribute to Sikh Knowledge and the MTL beat posse he created years ago. It’s meant to be listed to loud so turn it up!”
Future Classic indeed!
