On Friday I went to check out the Mutek tour, I really enjoyed myself for once in what seems like a long time. I was planning on taking some pictures thinking that there would be some good visuals to capture but i guess to get the whole package I’d have to experience Mutek in Montreal. Apparently over 50% of the attendees are people traveling to attend so there really is something special about it! No complains though really. danksoul and nrmls wlcm put together a fun night.
The major east coast Canadian cities have good communities for electronic music. I think that’s why in the world of Canadian electronic music, most of the good stuff comes from Toronto, Montreal, Quebec, etc. I Was reading a local paper – Vue Weekly, which did an article on mutek. It mentioned basically how eastern Canada is more receptive to electronic music but that maybe people abroad are becoming reinterested in dance music.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Inkwell are from Vancouver, but I guess they are apart of the exception to be honest I didn’t pay much attention to them at first when I picked up the ‘Rain Or Shine‘ EP, but after seeing them live and learning about their story more i instantly felt a stronger connection with them. What sets Inkwell apart for me is their chemistry doing live PA, it’s really brilliant. Look out for releases from Inkwell on Archipel and Wagon Repair.
