> Session 3: Gayance (September 30 to October 14, 2021)
Gayance is a creole word for joyfulness. Since Aïsha Vertus is always unapologetic, it was the perfect name for her musical project that would also celebrate her Haitian roots. Born and raised in Montreal, the DJ with eclectic musical tastes has been tearing down venues in Paris, Amsterdam, Brooklyn, Marrakech, Berlin and more. She made her debut at n10as, The Lot Radio, Kiosk Radio, Rinse FM France and Radio-Canada.
> Session 2: Eve Parker Finley (June 15 to June 29, 2021)
Eve Parker Finley is a noted Montreal multi-instrumentalist, comedian, and upcoming Indie Pop Superstar. Braiding a dense and deliberate web of string arrangements and classical naturalism into a former raver’s penchant for programmed beats and four on the floor grooves, Finley has been a mainstay in the Montreal independent scene for nearly a decade.
> Session 1: Lunice (April 19 to May 3, 2021)
Born and raised in the city of Montreal, internationally renowned artist, producer and DJ, Lunice is a disciple of Hip Hop. Experimenting with electro synth sounds layered over pounding bass and drums, he soon developed a sonic aesthetic that kept the spirit of rap music while remaining as potent on the dancefloor as anything else.
