Our old friend Iggy Smalls from Ottawa runs a monthly party together with Drastik (another old friend of us here at Discobelle) called “Frenzy” where they look to book and feature up and coming artists that they feel are on the cusp of something big and that have a new interesting sound. Scion Sessions just started a Canadian chapter of events, where they also aim to push new emerging sounds and thus an alliance was formed with Frenzy to start doing minimixes with the Frenzy dj guests.

To start things off NYC producer and the man responsible for the massive track “Harlem Shake” Baauer made a mix a few weeks ago to reflect his gig with Halifax hero Ryan Hemsworth, 20 minutes of serious tunes ranging across trap, hip hop and bone rattling bass.

Also, yesterday Toronto producer and Pelican Fly member Deebs dropped this awesome mix in anticipation of his upcoming Frenzy show tomorrow Friday August 3rd.

“So, after a couple of weeks in the studio, we ended up w/ a bunch of demos and ideas about where to take our sound next. Somehow these demos landed on someone’s desk at Scion Sessions and they asked us if we could finish one of the songs! Because we’re cool guys and as you know we LoOoOove to share our music, we did it, and here’s the result! Let us know what you think.”

We get the distinct feeling that Halifax producer Ryan Hemsworth is out to destroy the competition. His bootleg edit of Frank Oceans track “Thinkin About You” is an attempt to give track “a little more oomf without destroying it” and we can only agree, Ryan brings forth a delicate and subdued beat along with warm dreamlike synths to accentuate the longing of the original track.

Ryan will release “Last Words EP”, featuring five original tracks and four remixes, on WEDIDIT August 21st.
