The Polaris Music Prize committee commissioned me to do a poster for one of this year’s shortlisted nominee. The album they assigned me was Shad’s Flying Colours. I’ve been a fan (and casual acquaintance) of Shad’s for a while, so it was a lot of fun to get to work on this, however challenging.
I struggled with an idea for a long time, since the posters are all silk screened, and limited to five colours – an obvious technical limitation for an album called Flying Colours – but I eventually just stopped overthinking it and went for a fun freehand vibe. Posters are available here. Read more here.
Just a few Mid Autumn Festival snaps from dinner (& a show) with Phoebe’s family.
It’s official! I’m super stoked to announce that The Forest Remixes EP will be dropping on the 20th of October, via cosmonostro! The EP features NINE remixes from amazing producers such as Swimming TV, Go Yama, J.u.D., Sarah Hiltz, Harrison, Ouska, Eli Colburn & Primat!
You can hear a snippet of Ouska’s Sparrow Eye remix in last Saturday’s Futurnostro on Rinse France, and stay tuned for more!
Broke 50K plays on my personal SoundCloud account, so I decided to liberate this tune I produced from a while back. It was initially supposed to be half of a two-track demo for Ghostly, but I could never quite turn out that second track. Thanks for all the support!

Last few hours of the Toronto leg of Ta-ku’s photojournalism world tour, post dinner & bubble tea with Elaquent. It was an honour to get to kick it with these two this weekend. Ta-ku and Elaquent are possibly the two producers, in the game today, most responsible for the way my career as a producer got started. Full set here.
More from Ta-ku’s recent visit to Toronto. Burger’s Priest, Evergreen Brickworks, Beverley School ball court. Full set here.
Finally arrived in Canada, the adidasoriginals ZX Flux! Managed to cop the first pair in the country before the store even opened!
Last stop before we hit the road, the bridge to the US for Bridge Fries & River Run watching. Full set here.
