Apologies for the delay in posting the podcast. I was suffering from Party Fever and I was dancing in my bed, head spinning like a white-label on a 1200.
Nothing shockingly new to report this week, except for more introspection in local press, this time from Now Magazine, for Toronto's new directions in the sound of dance music. You'd be happy to note that almost all of the artists mentioned in the article have been getting frequent rotation here on ESB, an for good reason. Some folks are already hitting up the comments section, criticizing the article for missing out on the "real" arists of the future, knocking the listed producers for their "unoriginality" and "trendiness". Judge at your peril. These artists, whether you dig their sound/scene or not, are an accurate representation of those who have been getting attention beyond Toronto, for their current repertoire of singles and remixes (bootleg or not). All Ben Boles is trying to say is: here are the producers who are getting respect and comeuppance, and this is what they think of Toronto's scene as a whole.
