Pushing the tempo on the guest mix series, bringing the west coast vibes to the east, comes one of the most talented, diverse and engaged local BC artists Pascal Mezano, aka Commoddity
. After laying down two sets at BOTH Luminosity Project
on Vancouver Island and Motion Notion Festival
in Golden BC, Commoddity
generously (and promptly) threw together a well-thought out mixtape, touching on a large but thematic range of deep, dark, sexy, melodic, ethereal sounds, spanning back to 2011, showcasing some of the best in half-time 170BPM bass music and drum & bass. Affiliated with the multi-artist audio/visual collective Connecting Circles
, C.C since 2010 has aimed to "showcase new waves of audio and visual enjoyment created to inspire."
Recorded on the mossy island of Saltspring BC, Commoddity's intriguing live set blends & showcases as well a couple tunes from our Canadian festival homie and Montreal native Alex Goopsteppa
, who also laid it down this summer at both Luminosity Gathering
and The Grove
at Shambhala Music Festival
near Salmo, BC.
