Cascading beats, gorgeous, honeyed vocals, ambient drone and precocious ukulele shredding make up Stefana Fratila’s stunning musical repertoire. In live settings, she loops and layers improvised vocals over pulsating dance beats and textures of binaural beats. The Romanian-born, Canadian-based musician has performed at DIY and underground venues around the world. Her most recent release, "tristă cu frică" comes out on July 1st via Genero, a new independent female-fronted record label and sound collective.

With her abstracted tropical samples, intergalactic synth ripples and cut-up childlike voices, Montreal electronic producer Phoebé Guillemot, alias Ramzi, slow cooks her hazy, warped worldbeat. The key to Guillemot’s blissed-out musical constellation is to align disparate elements of African and Southeast Asian pop, free jazz, simmering dub and exotic creole snippets. Her warm rehabilitation of many ambient sounds accentuates the music’s spiritual undercurrent – electronic music in curious communion with the cosmos.Ambient / Electro | Montreal
