guillaume sez: 'The label is really promoting and following the same vision as the blog and the radio show. We have a foot in the electronic scene, a second one in a more traditional or “world” music scene, and another in the hip-hop/Dancehall scene. It’s a weird hybrid beast dancing on 3 feets! In a broader perspective though, for me personally and I believe for Benoit and JP as well, I’m drawn to this music that some labeled World 2.0, but also music that’s created by 2nd or 3rd generation immigrants. These are musicians who are truly expressing their inner cultural and musical landscape, which doesn’t make any clear distinction between what’s West and what’s not, as they grew with both (or sometimes more than two) musical worlds.'

'Beyond just using software like Ableton Live to remix tracks, a new crop of artists had begun fusing hip-hop’s and dancehall’s lyrical fire and insistent boom-bap with techno’s heavy kicks, glitchy noise, and 8-bit synths. They threw in some mad, inhuman time signatures and birthed quite a post-modern mélange of sound, culture, and technology–a sound that New Yorker music critic Sasha Frere-Jones dubbed “lazer bass” in his scene-surveying article last March.' :: '“There’s just no point in being labeled because the sound is changing all the time,” Poirier concurs. “But at the same time, it’s nice to see people paying attention and making the connections.”'
