CANNES FILM FESTIVAL TRIP & ANOTHER MUSIC TIP!

Last week my manager Colin and I hung out at the Cannes Film Festival for a couple of award ceremonies. By night we checked out some rad parties! While we were out there, I was featured in a documentary film for the French channel Arte called Super Heros. We even managed to fit in a studio shoot with the amazingly talented Patrizio Di Renzo.

Then, the week before that, I was in Moscow, guest-appearing at the Soho Lounge, and after that, the Moscow International Tattoo Convention, promoted by Club Arena. The coolest part of my Moscow trip has got to be hands-down the after-party at Rolling Stone Bar. There I DJ’d with my new bros VJ Chuck of MTV Russia and Artem Gnus of Billboard Russia. These guys are stone-cold cool! Spinning wickedly eclectic tracks! …but yeah, they loved my set of stuff, featuring Keny Arkana and others… This is my love; sharing art internationally, and that’s exactly where I wanna be.

Now that I’m back in Montreal, I wanna share a band with you guys; The Unsettlers, an incredible eleven-piece based out in Montreal (think Tom Waits meets The Pogues). They’re quite a contrast to my previous recommendation, Keny Arkana, but they really know how to entertain the crowd with their insanely original material. Be sure to check these guys out! They deserve the attention.

Just so you know, I’m looking through and listening to all the music you’ve been sending in. Thanks for all your recommendations – I’ve had emails from people in Pittsburgh, Chicago, even Germany and the UK! I’m still accepting submissions (email This email address is being protected from spambots.
