RBMA | Destination Tokyo
Full confession: No one at Dialogue Inc is Canadian. So we feel we have some sliver of an excuse for why we've never heard of the talented gentlemen that are taking part in the Red Bull Music Academy's Destination Tokyo tour. That said, upon exploring their music further, we're a little disappointed in ourselves for not having discovered them sooner. Repping for the West Coast Canadian scene Lunice, Prison Garde, Ango and Jacques Greene are all making some deep groovers inspired by classic techno, nudisco, house and Soulja Boy. And now they're traversing the great white North playing a string of dates to help raise awareness for the Tokyo edition of Red Bull Music Academy (in October) and spread their good music in the process.
Even though it's a strictly Canadian tour, it's a great example of the type of thing the Academy is all about: spreading future music in a positive environment. It's about really letting these guys stretch out, do what they're good at and help get them exposure at the same time.
It's something we highly encourage all you producers, DJs and musicians out there to get involved in.
