Record Label: Young Art Records
Canadian electronic music producer CRi is quickly striding forward in exciting directions, bringing the current signature Montreal sound of house synths, syncopated snares and fluid basslines into a new era. Finding success in early 2015 with the beautiful video for “Pearl”, directed by Kristof Brandl, the self-taught composer and DJ began his musical experimentations in 2012, with artists like Floating Points, Mount Kimbie, Lone and Caribou vastly influencing his early sonic adventures and leaving traces on his new work.
Coming out of the same beat scene that gave birth to indie producers Kaytranada, Jacques Greene or Lunice, Christophe Dubé is adding a crisper, sleeker and cleaner tint to the club sounds of La Belle Province. His first EP, ‘ECLIPSE’ reached the ears of several music supervisors, which had him simultaneously composing tracks and scores for commercials, films and live plays. His second EP, ‘ODA’, released in May 2014, quickly gained critical acclaim in Quebec and beyond, with favorable reviews from Thump/Noisey and Paper Magazine.
