Toronto-based artists Kevin McPhee, Nautiluss, Gingy and Bruce Trail share a new EP on 3024.
Fresh from a WNCL record and a remix for A1 Bassline & Bobby Champs, Kevin McPhee delivers the acid-tinged ‘Version 5’, Turbo Recordings‘ and Hemlock affiliate Nautiluss (pictured) offers up the smooth ‘Zero Gravity’, there’s typically stripped-down techno from Gingy, and an impressive down moment from newcomer Bruce Trail.
3024 label boss Martyn explains:
Over the last year I’ve traveled to Canada frequently for gigs and got to know the small but healthy electronic music scene there. Cities like Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto have brought forth many established artists over the past few years, such as Egyptrixx, Azari & III, Basic Soul Unit, Jacques Greene, Lunice and Sixtoo, but 2012 has seen a new breed of no-nonsense house and techno producers come up via labels like Turbo Recordings and Naked Lunch.
This “Dovercourt EP” features four very talented producers: Kevin McPhee, Nautiluss, Gingy and fresh face Bruce Trail. Their tracks are a dedication to their hometown of Toronto. Being removed from the house/techno epicentres of Berlin and London, these four are much less interested in what’s fashionable or trendy, and more in bringing us straight to the point, no frails jacking house music. I’ve been playing these four extensively in my DJ sets, and I hope you will too. So out to Toronto, this one’s for you!
