UN
This track was recorded live by Kara Keith and Jen Reimer in their Montreal studio in the dead of winter 2015. It is a party jam that is never played the same way twice. Canadian experimental electronic music duo UN was formed in Montreal in 2011. They make live techno with analogue instruments, vocal looping techniques and various hardware to create a raw, industrial, cold wave sound. Kara Keith's repetitive motifs dance together like colourful kaleidoscopes and are undulated by Jen Reimer's constant driving bass drum. With hypnosis as their guiding force they have created trance music while in a trance and dance music while dancing.

TG are currently working on a full length record with hopes of a late summer/autumn release. The duo consists of Aunt Gleam(synthesizers, drum programming, voice) and Angel Marie (synthesizers, voice). "Cold to the touch, sharp as razor wire...In search of a subject....object of desire." "Everything drenched in 80’s pastiche but with the colorfulness of the gleaming neon-colors that stream through sonically. Include this into a pop-oriented and energetic sound which could have those of us least interested in dancing, swinging around our hands as if we’re the swines of the night. A sound which is in no need of change and which only heeds to the hedonism of the night." -via Repartiseraren.

Opale
In opal fields, you have to pierce through layers of rock to discover a gem. Opale’s first album, L'incandescent, holds a single direction throughout the 35 minute duration and is graciously supported with a band of cold and melancholic analog keyboards and soft, haunting voices. Nowhere to go and nothing to feel is the single story sung in English, French, and Spanish. Through cities of light and the waking of lost spirits, Opale will take you on a trip that may be your last.

La Chatte
The three-headed musical creature La Chatte was born in 2003 in Paris, formed by Stéphane Argillet aka Stereovoid, Vava Dudu and Nicolas Jorio. After releasing a first self-produced “pink” album in 2004, they focused on their live performance, criss crossing all over Europe. They released two album with Tsunami Addiction, “Bastet” (2011) and “Crash Ocean” (2013). The sound of La Chatte was shaped on stage through numerous improvised live sessions, incidental mix of techniques and accidental connivances. Most of their songs, even when put on their records, still evolve, change form, lose their intention or die as natural living creatures. Aquatic guitar inspirations, extreme expressionist singing and crystalline electronics geometries lead La Chatte along winding, deliquescent and wild music paths

Heather Celeste Hansen
More recently on the web, Heather also goes by the Moniker of Bruyere. She experiments with bringing the Wide headroom and Stereo into Minimal wave, Synth wave, and electro vintage mono genres from the 80s, emphasizing enhanced textures of percussion. Her "ether wobbling" between unsettled ambient and cold-wave goes head to head with emaciated electronic and synthetic melody, making a topography of convoluted rythm language. Currently producing Dark techno, Detroit, Minimal wave and Deep Minimal Ambient House Heather currently resides in New England US, though originally from the West Coast, where she is intending to return. Her next release "Modern Death" is due to be released later 2015.
