JP - Sketch Book (Cassette)
His beat production ventures started in 2008, but it was in 2011 that he truly delved into experimental beat projects.
His beat tapes found a home with Spring Break Tapes, thanks to friend Joe McKay, where five tapes were released. A visual artist in his own right, he created all the cover artwork for this release and has contributed to the artwork for various Broken Social Scene releases, including notable ones like "You Forgot It In People" “Bee Hives” and "Forgiveness Rock Record."
"Sketchbook," JP's latest endeavor, serves as a sonic documentation of his beat-making journey. Channeling artists like Daedelus, Teebs, Deonwho and Flying Lotus, this short record is absolutely epic. The record is being released on limited Yellow cassette and a very limited Square Double 7-inch Lathe cut version that not only has 2 extra songs but also features collaborations with legends Lil Jaz (DMC champion) and Joshua Winstead (Metric), adding depth to the release and embodying some of our favorite moments.
Inspired by a dynamic roster of artists like Yussef Dayes, Harold Budd, and Hiroshi Yoshimura and visual artists like Mercedes Helnwein, Tim Hawkinson, and Joe Matt. JP's creative energy extends beyond music; he has also graced screens as an actor, starring in the movie "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," the TV show "Our Hero," and even an episode of "Monk."
His multifaceted career paints a portrait of an artist whose resonance echoes far beyond the drum kit. "Sketchbook" is poised to be a resonant chapter in JP's artistic journey, a testament to his evolution as a beat maker and collaborator in Toronto's vibrant musical landscape.
