South Park gives Canada a hard time but believe it or not the Canucks are responsible for some pretty cool shit these days. I mean Jim Carrey gave us Ace Ventura (Part 1 of course), Chromeo Fancy Footwork , Wayne Gretzky was the man, Joni Mitchell never lies and Canadians even invented IMAX, go figure. Â The latest gift from up North is a Trio from Toronto that goes by the name of Young Empire; Jake Palahnuk, Robert Aaron Ellingson and Matthew Vlahovich could have started EMPT with me. Their musical vision is to marry music with the high life and anyone familiar with the Space Age knows how we feel about that.
Their production style is subtle yet energetic, simple yet captivating and most importantly it makes you want to dance. There seems to be a fearless blending of styles and genres in their music which immediately caught my ear, fresh! Though relatively unknown at the moment, you can expect these guys to catch fire soon. I think they’ve only been together since ’09 so if there’s more like this on the way there’s a bright future ahead. I have to leave for L.A. in a few hours so I’m gonna have to cut it short but throw this jam on and have your Monday feeling like a Friday with the quickness, enjoy.
