Don’t forget… Mount Kimbie are at Fortune Sound Club June 13th. This show is going to be amazing, i’ve been waiting for a long time to see these guys. First time I heard them was through Jamie XX’s mix for Benji B a while ago, check that out here. We’ve also got Holy Other opening along with Vinyl Williams. I highly suggest checking this show out, get tickets at Red Cat Records, Zulu Records, Beat Street Records, High or online HERE. Click the pic above for more info on the event and check out the new video for their single “Made To Stray” from their upcoming album “Cold Spring Fault Less Youth”.

Groundislava put on a good show at the Waldorf (RIP) a long time ago and now we’ve got him back at Fortune opening for oOoOO. I had never heard of this cat but once I hit his Soundcloud up I was blown away. The first track “Stay Here” ft ML had a lovely but dark vibe that kept me listening. His LP “WIthout Your Love” comes out June 24th on Nighjt Feelings, check out Lava’s soundcloud here. You can get tickets at Red Cat Records, Zulu Records, Beat Street Records, online HERE OR hit me up on FB, Twitter or whatever else for hardcopies.
One of my personal favorite collabs in the rap game last year was Richy & Dom’s “It Ain’t Really Nuthin“and now we’ve got Boo Bonic featuring OPM’s chief once again. This joint really did it for me, too good. Keep an eye out for Bonic’s project coming out soon.
275 Klan Be The Set taking over the Boiler Room. BUMBUMBUM!!!!!
We are starting up a new media wave party “Esc,Cntrl,Shift” bringing you the best the interwebzzz has to offer. Our very first show we have the leader of this new “Sea-Punk” wave, Jerome LOL. This young cat has been known for his old school Web 1.0 style in his videos and music. I first heard about him through his work as LOL Boys and the amazing song “Changes”. After his recognition on the internet lots of other artists starting coming out with the similar style and image with even Rihanna copying the style on her Saturday Night Live appearance. We’ve got our very own local DJ dorks that will get errybody started. WoBangs & DJ#Basedg0th (TLC), the homies Killing Time and Fortune fam member Blondtron! Get tickets at Zulu Records, Red Cat Records, Beatstreet Records, Highlife or online HERE.
shit b soundin like grey tapes now…
I’ve been addicted to MORRI$ for quite some time now and once I found out about the Bear Club I had to listen to the rest of the team. They all something to deliver but stay similar with the heavy bass use, I wouldn’t quite call this “Trap”. Him & Richman are a type of bass music I can’t quite label… I like that about them. It’s soft & chill yet with thumpin’ bass, check out the great music video above for “Affairs”.
We are officially in May and Vancouver has a hand full of great shows coming up but thee one that i’m looking forward to this month is Kaytranada. This Montreal cat will be opening for Kastle at our very own Fortune Sound Club and i’m sure it’s going to be one to remember. Kastle played a show at Fortune not too long ago and it was a great show, this time it’s going to be even better. We’ve got locals 8prn & Blue Version getting things started. Click the pic above for more info on event and get tickets at Zulu Records, Red Cat Records, Highlife, Beat Street Records or online here. Check out the awesome set he laid down at LA’s Boiler Room, it’ll defs get you in the mood.
