Range, appeal, and a massive dose of nasty, gritty bass are the three chief weapons every Dirtybird artist has in his or her quiver, but Ardalan seems to be the peak culmination of all those assets in one wieldy point. GREAZUS is the culmination of nearly 2 combined decades of experience producing music, DJing, running record labels and promoting underground shows in Vancouver. This is the shared vision of two of the city’s most renowned and prolific bass music ambassadors - HxdB & Patrik Cure.
Individually, both are accomplished music producers, having releases on some of the most respected labels in the scene like Tectonic, B.YRSLF, Brownswood, Mindset and countless others. Their solo music having been supported by legends like Gilles Peterson, Ben UFO, Machinedrum and B Traits, and having several plays on BBC Radio1, Rinse FM & NTS. Together they have combined their shared experiences and passion for music, to create
a uniquely infectious sound, paying homage to their Jungle, Drum & Bass and Hip Hop roots, while fusing elements of Juke, Footwork, Grime and House. The result in both their productions and performances has been blowing up dance floors and opening eyes to their hybrid, genre-melding sounds.
Both having performed frequently across North America and at legendary festivals like Shambhala and Bass Coast Project. Despite this project being in its relative infancy, the two have already received support from international heavyweights like Youngsta, dBridge, Sam Binga, Om Unit, Ivy Lab, Pixelord, Hyroglifics, Fixate & Random Movement.
When you think of cities that are meccas for footwork and jungle, Calgary’s not usually the first place that springs to mind, but HomeSick’s working on changing that. Shaun Lodestar has always had a taste for the energetic side of dance.
A producer since his early teens, the Calgary-based musician first developed a love for Jungle, then its more frenetic cousin Footwork.
October 2015 HomeSick was selected to be a participant at the Red Bull Music Academy hosted in Paris, France where he was mentored by some of the worlds most prestigious artists and producers in the dance music realm.
Vice Media music channel THUMP listed HomeSick as one of the ‘10 Canadian Electronic Artists to watch in 2016.’ 2014 saw the conception of the club night “PERCOLATE” originally based in Calgary, now finding homes in Toronto and Vancouver. Connecting the east, west and central regions of Canada into one cohesive hustle.
The Alberta Electronic Music Conference takes place in Edmonton from November 11-13th. Get more information about the conference by visiting our website:
