Sleepwreck is the sound of cyborgs dancing around a ritual bonfire. As primal as it is forward reaching, as organic as it is technological, this is Music which defies genre categorization. After a move to Vancouver and months of work in the studio he emerges with a new EP which takes his sound to the next level. With the addition of live tribal percussion to his stage show to accompany the new material, this summer sees Sleepwreck set to lay it down for real at festivals and events across Western Canada.
Mario Lepage, otherwise known as “The Master of the Loops”, innovates and crafts a musical universe of his own. The Fransaskois singer-songwriter has opened for some of Eastern Canada’s biggest francophone acts including Ariane Moffatt, Karkwa (Polaris prize winner), Radio Radio and Les Hay Babies. Lepage will be representing Western Canada at the Festival International de la chanson this fall – an annual international songwriting competition and festival held in Granby, Québec. Whether he performs as a solo act or with his psychedelic band, the multi-instrumentalist hones an energetic performance that blends catchy melodies, deep synths, dreamy lyricism as well as phat rhythm and bass.
Isoscellator has spent years honing the craft of synaesthetic light and music integration. This quantum-cosmic mad scientist has been taking events in Saskatoon to the next level since 2011, and now he steps it up once again with a custom designed, real-time sound responsive lighting display. Suffice it to say: This is gonna be awesome!
