Ontario native Alex Flemming, aka Black Atlass, first burst onto the scene about 11 months ago with his masterpiece The Black Atlass EP. Featuring 6 songs spanning roughly 18 minutes, Flemming displays his production versatility with a mix of sample heavy bangers and synth laid piano wails that will upset you when you learn he’s most likely younger than you. That’s right, the EP was released when he was just 17. Take a listen (and then download) the whole EP below.
I took a quick trip to Paris this past weekend and stumbled upon Le Salon (Atelier Galerie). Located next door to Ed Banger Records (the labels of Justice and SebAstian, among others), Le Salon (Atelier Galerie) is the studio/gallery of Thomas Winter, brother of Pedro Winter/Busy P- French dj, producer, Ed Banger Records owner and former Daft Punk manager. An instagram photo posted by Ed Banger Records promoting a new exhibit drew us into the Parisian studio. On display at the intimate gallery was MałgośKa’s photo exhibit entitled “Absences…” in collaboration with LISA SAYS. The work, with an air of eeriness, showcased photographs of objects in low light. I enjoyed the exhibit and was lucky to catch up with the talented young artist Malgoska during the opening night of her showing.
