The veteran Montreal producer has debuted on the LA label, and has a release due on ASL Singles Club as well.
Prison Garde has a cassette out on 100% Silk.
Occultsystem is Canadian producer Robert Squire's first release on the LA label, and also marks a major return to music after moving to Montreal to open a barber shop. The one-time hip-hop producer formerly known as Sixtoo (and one member of Megasoid) has lived all around Canada, and he established the Prison Garde moniker while in Vancouver around 2011 as an outlet for house and boogie-influenced hardware jams. The imprint calls the tape "ten of his starkest greyscale technoid skeletons" made using "a TR-909, Moog Minitaur, Juno-60, Tetra synthesizer, 3630 Compressor, some pedals, and a mixing desk." Montrealer Ango and Vancouverites Ace Decade and Kevin Eames also contributed to the release, which is out digitally today. You can stream "Black Grey Modulator" below.
Vancouver label ASL Singles Club also has an EP in the works from Squire, this time a five-tracker called Forts which is due out in late June.
