Je suis extrêmement fier d'avoir été sélectionné comme DJ pour les célébrations de Fierté Montréal, sur le tout premier char allégorique de la Ville de Montréal, lors du défilé du 7 août prochain! C'est un grand moment historique et définitivement l'un des évènements les plus marquants de ma carrière...
Je vous prépare tout un DJ set pour l'occasion. Venez fêter en grand nombre!
Le party continue! Venez célébrer tous les mercredis au Bar Le Stud où je tiens ma résidence RETROWAVE officiellement depuis mai: un plancher de danse qui sonne, une musique alternative-new-wave-électro dans le tapis et ma sélection de vidéos alternatifs présentées sur les TVs du bar.
Je suis comblé! Que c'est bon de danser à nouveau...
Ouvert à toustes. Et c'est gratuit!
Visitez la section DJ pour accéder aux flyers promotionnels.
Enfin l'été est arrivé et les masques sont partis! Quel timing de feu.
Je suis maintenant DJ tous les mercredis soirs de 22h à 3h au Bar Le Stud (1812 Ste-Catheriner Est). Un plancher de danse qui sonne, des TVs qui jouent des vidéos alternatifs, un vibe 80s, new-wave, électro dans le tapis! Je suis comblé. Venez danser!!!
Le lancement officiel est ce mercredi 18 mai. Visitez la section DJ pour acéder au flyer promotionnel.

15 years ago, my first album was coming out. All written, composed and produced by myself in my actual bedroom. Now, with all these years of music production behind me, I've completely reworked these songs, using the original recordings. I gave myself a challenge of 15 days to re-mix the tracks, and remastered the result. Some songs just have a much better sound while others have transformed quite a bit with the add of new synths, some changes in their structures, etc.

Sometimes it takes us years to figure out what's best for us!
I've been cultivating the idea that my singer/songwriter/producer career needed to be separated from my DJ work. That said, both of these creative outlets bring a richness to the other...so why not totally embrace them both under the same roof!?
It's definitely more effective too.
Finally, here it is! Just started to built this online home for the complete music lover in me. Soon, you'll find everything FRIGID right here.
