October 5th, 2014 > post-rock

Envious Of The Colour Red

post-rock is a combination of post-punk, progressive rock, ambient, dub, kraut rock, jazz, electronic music, space rock, free and experimental music. it’s what happens when your rock band has been playing a long time, gotten really good, listened to lots of amazing music, gotten bored of the main stream and drifted off into unknown territory.

Back To The Freezer

Freezer was one of the first chill out / trip hop / electronic listening music / ambient drum’n'bass nights in Montreal. these are some of the records i was playing back then, alongside fellow residents Wig (now Ghostbeard) and Andrew Interchill. i’ve just added 20 years experience and an extra turntable to the mix. oh yeah, this is also the 4th anniversary mix for this site, thanks for listening.
