We're also super excited to welcome AZARI & III, producers of our 2 favourite dancefloor killers of 2009
AZARI & III (I'm a Cliche, Permanent Vacation, Automatt)
AZARI & III, pronounced "a-zar-ee and third", is the clandestine collaboration between Toronto based producers Dinamo Azari and Alixander III. Taken form over the winter of 08/09, the duo have garnered love and praise from the people and the press, and continue to make seductive and challenging musical artifacts sure to stand the test of time.
With a sound both futuristic and reminiscent, bold tracks like HUNGRY FOR THE POWER and the brazen RECKLESS (WITH YOUR LOVE) have made their way onto the top of the taste maker's charts and into the sets of many renowned DJs, but they are not just an underground hit machine. Other material wanders into uncharted territory with eerie analog manipulations and constantly evolving soundscapes, sure to lure you in and lead you into some dark alleys of the mind.
With an EP and Single separately debuting in Sept/Oct and live appearances scheduled worldwide for Fall/Winter 09, Azari & III also have a full length album set for release in Spring 2010, and are busy DJing, remixing other artists and producing new material.
Hungry For The Power EP available September 09 on I'm A Cliché , Reckless (With Your Love) Single available November 09 on Permanent Vacation
We'll also have an opening set by MEMBERSONLY DJs (Montreal)
