BILINGUAL SINGER-SONGWRITER TO PERFORM ALONGSIDE ALESSIA CARA, SERENA RYDER, WALK OFF THE EARTH AND MORE! 

NOMINATED FOR TWO 2017 BREAKOUT WEST AWARDS: FRANCOPHONE ARTIST OF THE YEAR AND WORLD MUSIC ARTIST OF THE YEAR

 

Toronto, ON – June 26, 2017 – Celebrate this Canada Day on Parliament Hill with Kelly Bado! The bilingual singer-songwriter will hit the Parliament Hill Stage at 8:30pm to celebrate Canada’s 150th along with Alessia Cara, Serena Ryder, Walk Off The Earth, and others, and will perform a medley with Kinnie Starr and Jean Cormier. 

Kelly Bado takes listeners on a beautiful journey with her songs. Discovering her musical and artistic passions at a young age, Kelly performed in local choirs in her native Côte d’Ivoire.  In 2007, Kelly ventured to Canada, where her love of music continued to flourish.

In early 2016, Kelly was one of three artists chosen by Manitoba Music to journey to Los Angeles to showcase for a selected group of music industry heavyweights.  LA-based Canadians, singer-songwriter producer, Andy Stochansky, and entertainment lawyer, Lisa Whynot, fell immediately in love with Kelly’s soulful voice and invited her to spend an afternoon in the studio with Stochansky and fellow LA-based Canadian, Grammy award winning songwriter-producer, Brian West.  The four have spent the last year developing Kelly’s unique talent and writing and recording songs for a new project, while Kelly continues to promote her French language EP, Entre Deux – a French and Spanish-language album with a mixture of sweetness and rhythm.

The EP has led to nominations for two awards at the 2017 Breakout West Awards: Francophone Artist of the Year and World Music Artist of the Year. Kelly will also be performing at the Awards’ Kick Off Concert on September 14th at the Myer Horowitz Theatre.  With lyrics inspired by love, hope and social equality, and a sound that marries pop with R&B/Soul, one cannot help but get swept away into Kelly’s magical voice!

Bade Records returns this June with ‘USER EP’ from UK-based BinaryFunction.

BADE011 Artwork (1).jpg

Veteran producer BinaryFunction has been honing his craft since the mid-90s. He has delivered an expertly produced three-track EP consisting of exquisite acid techno that draws upon his 90s influences.

He kicks off the release with ‘ACKF1N’, a breakbeat acid banger sure to send any dance floor alight. C0ntr0l follows, a deep hypnotic track with harsh industrial tones and fidgety percussion, perfect for bringing out those ‘eyes closed’ moments of the night. ‘C0NF1GERR0R’ is a raw acid jam with high resonance stabs and free moving bells, skilfully executed to create a tense track to round off the EP.

BinaryFunction’s ‘USER’ EP will be out on 5th June 2017.

Untitled.png

Two unknown producers could win the opportunity of a lifetime thanks to Scorpio Music, one of France’s biggest independent electronic music imprints.

https://wavo.me/scorpiomusic/a-r-talent-search-competition

The label that brought Love Symbol (Prince), the Village People, Martin Garrix, Hardwell and Deorro to France announces today a huge new international A&R drive to discover new, unsigned talent – and it could be you!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcYHJ3hXFAQ

Win, and you’ll have automatic access to a mammoth platform that will distribute your music to millions of fans worldwide – a move that could prove one of the biggest breaks in your career.

The brief from Scorpio is about as wide as it gets, the only stipulation being tracks must be between 120-135BPM. Other than that, it’s up to you what genre, what style and what production you use.

To enter, simply upload your track to https://wavo.me/scorpiomusic/a-r-talent-search-competition before May 12th, then share with fans and friends alike. The 10 most popular singles in terms of SoundCloud listens by the end of May will then go through to be judged by Scorpio Music’s A&R team in Paris.

First prize in the competition includes a two-single release contract on all digital stores and streaming platforms, global PR campaign from Scorpio Music’s official publicist Get In!, and song upload to the Scorpio Music YouTube channel with over 1 million subscribers. The runner up will receive the exact same prize but for a solo single release.

Over the space of 4 decades Scorpio Music has proven time and again to have their ear bang on the big money. It should come as no surprise to observers that their well-oiled A&R department is finally shifting its attention to larger waters flexing its significant muscle outside of France.

Full competition terms and conditions can be found at https://wavo.me/terms-of-service. Entrants must be over 18-years-old, or between 13-18-years-old with parental consent.

Josh Butler releases second volume of his ‘Heroes of House’ series

ORIGINS002-cover-web.jpg

UK house maestro Josh Butler delivers the second instalment of his three-part ‘Heroes of House’ series. Collaborating with renowned producer Todd Terry and house hero Darius Syrossian, the project continues to explore and celebrate both current and legendary figures in the house music scene that have inspired and defined a generation. The release is out now on Josh’s new label project ORIGINS RCRDS and is available via all digital retailers.

LISTEN: HEROES OF HOUSE VOL.2

Kicking off the second volume is Josh’s collaboration with house master Todd Terry. The track ‘Rock the House’, reignites flavours from the golden days of house music, exerting an upbeat and meandering rhythm through astute placement of percussion and rolling bass. The track’s infectious groove is then fortified by the top line melody, a mix of chopped vocal cuts and synth stabs.

Josh Butler ­ ‘Todd Terry is the remix king of our generation. One of my earliest memories of hearing house music is Todd’s remix of Everything But The Girl ­ ‘Missing’. It’s been an amazing journey from this memory to now producing music with him. Darius has also been a big part of my journey and he has supported me from an early stage in my career. I’m now very proud to have both of these heroes as a part of my own label.’

BUY: HEROES OF HOUSE VOL.2

Having formed an early bond over their track ‘Bass Play’, it was inevitable that Josh and Darius would reunite to produce another class record. ‘Ohm’s Law,’ the second track on the EP is introduced with a classic house groove, wholesome kick and the kind of signature sub bass groove that Josh is known for. As the acid line creeps in, modulated with reverb and delay, the track transitions into a heightened drop compiling all the elements and sealing the groove.

Both tracks on the EP demonstrate a distinct and influential style that is rooted deeply in the history of house and reinforces the strength and message in Josh’s ‘Heroes of House’ project; to bring different eras together to create something new and refreshing yet undoubtedly nostalgic.

Stay tuned to the ORIGINS RCRDS socials for all upcoming news regarding releases and event announcements.
