Top 20 Most Wanted Totally Canadian Records (And Tape)
In light of our recent announcement of bringing Crate Diggers Record Fair to Canada, I thought I might provide some of the most wanted Canadian records on offer. I built this list by looking at the most wanted Canadian-only releases. These are defined as releases from Canada that do not share a master release with a version pressed outside Canada. I personally found this to be a really informative pile of gems worth checking out. Let us know if you have any ideas for countries you want to see featured!
I want to live inside the B-Side of this record forever. I don’t know how to write music reviews. Is this bass dubby? Is that how you kids describe these things? Dubby?
B1 – At first I wasn’t too impressed until it happened and then every hair on my body stood straight up. Goodness gracious. Play loud. The other tracks are fine too, I guess.
I can see the title track working particularly well in certain big room situations. Probably good on it’s own right, but those first two set the bar a little high. Honestly though, the more I listen to it, the more it’s sinking in on me. Don’t listen to me. Make your own decisions.
The A-Side reminds me an awful lot of The Morning After in some respects. Probably debatable, but that would be my first reaction as something to mix with. It’s really good too.
I was thinking of merging this down by master release, but I felt it was a worthwhile entry just to show how strong of a demand there is for this track.
I swear I’ve heard the A-Side track somewhere before. It feels really familiar. For a while I was living at a house that was basically the afterparty house for the scene. I’d crash around 10 and get up at 2AM just in time for load of party people to show up and play music until they crashed or left. So so much good music in those days. Maybe I heard this there. I don’t remember.
Every track on this one is a winner. I liked Sunrise Market the most. I got lost in it for awhile. It’s hard to review good music sometimes because you get pulled into the music.
This is the point in making a blog post where I listen to an entire record and can’t remember what any of it sounded like beyond “hey, that was pretty cool.”
