LuckyMe x Lookout

Montreal is a great city.

As evidenced by the amount of appreciation I try to show for my city on Avenge The Virgins, I truly love my hometown. Not only do we have an ungodly amount of fantastic musical talent, an open-minded meshing of scenes and decent venues, we also have dope parties. Pretty much any weekend in Montreal, you're guaranteed to find at least one really good event going on, somewhere.

One of the rising stars in the Montreal's promotion agency scene, Lookout Presents, play a big part in bringing great talent to our shores. Their track record is pretty decent, too. In the past year, the artists they've brought to Montreal include Hudson Mohawke, Mount Kimbie, Samiyam, Kingdom, Dam Funk, Delorean, Aloe Blacc, South Rakkas Crew, Yacht, and many more.

Therefore, when Seb of Lookout (also of Night Trackin) hit us up to help promote the LuckyMe showcase coming to Montreal this Friday, I couldn't resist. I've only ever met the dude once, for like 5 minutes, so I won't claim that Lookout is ATV fam, but we're always willing to put on for our city and help out.

Scottish label LuckyMe, founded by experimental hip-hop genius Hudson Mohawke, has put out some really great releases this year, and they've definitely shown a lot of love to Montreal as of late. Kudos to them for being ahead of the curve and realizing that this city is one of the epicenters of forward thinking electronic music.

This friday's line-up is really quite ridiculous. This amount of sexy r&b, rap and futuristic bass music in one room will definitely cause a few casualties. The walls will drip with sweat, children will be conceived on the dancefloor, and you may even spontaneously combust in a moment of pure bliss.

Lookout even provided neat little pre-written blurbs, which makes my job so much bloody easier. However, I've also included a song by each artist as well as links to their soundclouds/facebook & twitter pages. If you enjoy what you hear, check them out on these different platforms and show them some love.

On the menu this evening...

Cubic Zirconia
Panteros666- X Lova (Cubic Zirconia remix)

Seriously, this band will destroy your club, your concert hall, your living room. It's acid inflected pop music that hints towards a tradition of great new york loft parties and the vacious structure of punk bands like ESG and Liquid Liquid. But you know, Cubic's music is more than that. It's not trying to be anything else than Nick Hook, Tiombe Lockhart & Daud Sturdivant going in as hard as they can. I mean, what shall we call it? We have to call it something -- that's the way of music journalism. Let's go for ethnic disco.


Jesse Boykins III- Chanel (Machinedrum remix)

New label mate Machinedrum will be present as well, riding off his stellar new releases on LuckyMe and on Hotflush as his new garage/future dubstep project Sepalcure. With a combination of the songwriting skills of Timbaland, the huge club sounds of Daft Punk and the crafty experimentation of Aphex Twin, Machinedrum will take us all on quite the musical ride.


Jacques Greene
Cassie- Must be Love (Jacques Greene's Marriage Proposal mix)

Jacques Greene hails from Montreal, Canada, and you may or may not have heard some music he made under a previous guise. It doesn't really matter. His current focus is glistening house music with the perfect balance of reverence and idiosyncrasy, and an unashamed devotion to R'n'B. Releases with LuckyMe and NightSlugs have announced his arrival in the house music world in fine style, and hint at a pretty good year to come.


Lunice- Freaky

Lunice is just THAT dude. So cool, so easy. But at night he’s a monster making bedroom dance videos to Footcrab and Sex Intelligent (remix stoopid). It was just over a year ago that Lunice started bumping his own beats at the Turbo Crunk nights. To think that he’s since played two European tours and attended Red Bull in London, cheeeez, Dude is doing those big things already.


Ango ft Katy B- Fireworks

Joining Montreal's community of influential DJs and Producers, this R&B beat maker has just begun to do his part to help rebuild the landscape of alternative dance music in North America. Ango's music is uniquely melodic and hopeful, bringing boogie-era synth and drum sounds into context with contemporary R&B bangers, electro and bass music.


Well, that pretty much covers it. Dig it.
