Roleo: Free Flight


Solid funk jam from Roleo. Free download courtesy of Paris label Laruche Records.




SW006: Calmpound- Impulses


Sixth release on Sensing Waves comes from Calmpound out of Nelson, BC. He follows up his Wen Im Alone release from May with a peaceful yet focused collection of live compositions. The concept of Impulses circles around the ideas of concentration, patience, and intoxication. Each instrument track is a single take and Calmpound showcases his versatility by singing and playing guitar and keys in subtle fashion. It was performed, recorded, and mixed through a Zoom R-24. You can purchase it below or on iTunes.




Kline & O'shea Adams: Don't You Worry (Self Evident remix)


New video for Don't You Worry (Self Evident remix) by KlineO'Shea Adams. All the Vancouver homies stopped by the sinking ship HQ to be a part of this. Much love and respect to Which Nancy, Michael Red, Low Indigo and everyone else involved.

You can grab the tune and the rest of the rmx.ep.1 for free or by donation via the bandcamp.

Kousk: An Orienting Response EP


Kousk from the Bass Bus collective in Calgary just gave away a 3 track EP for free. The first song is called Organic Hypothesis, and it consists of several layers of beatboxing that I laid down for her. On the EP is also one of my fav songs titled The Lovers. I've played it over and over all year.

The EP is a free download or pay what you like. Much respect.




Shamik- Heart Opener


Gave away a new tune for free last week. It's called Heart Opener and samples an old Goan film song.

Grab it below. Much love.




Haida: SPLINTERS


Heard a lot of reworks and remixes of Natasha Kmeto this year for the Bass Coast remix competition, but this Haida flip of her vocal is quite interesting. Sword samples, Burial-esque mood, and other nice soundscapes. Enjoy.



Kellylee Evans: MY NAME IS


Great new video from Kellylee Evans titled My Name Is. I had the honour of jamming with her and her band to this song at the Vancouver Jazz Festival last year :)

Grab her I Remember When album.

Big love.

Do yourself a favour a grab this free compilation courtesy of Stussy and Soulection! Sounding so nice right now! Much respect to everyone involved.

We've sifted through dozens of tracks to curate the finest selection of progressive music from around the globe to bring visibility to the future sound.
