Victoria's Kyla LeBlanc (a.k.a. Kytami) is one of the hottest rising stars in BC. A violinistextremist who acts as a conduit between the disparate forces of classical and electronic music, bringing together fiddle perfection and hip-hop/dubstep forms, her distinct perspective has helped shape the West Coast scene for years, across all musical boundaries. Her work has appeared on albums by hip-hop legends Swollen Members and Sweatshop Union, and political punk act The Rebel Spell, as well as with acoustic punk-rock drinking band Blackie and the Triumphs. She co-founded globe-fusion act Delhi 2 Dublin in 2006, co-writing them to international recognition before leaving in 2010 to focus on her solo career, which proved to be an inspired move. In 2013 alone, she took home "Live Act of the Year" at the Vancouver Island Music Awards, and her self-titled album won "Electronic/Dance Recording of the Year" at the Western Canadian Music Awards.
All fabulous, award-winning electronic music albums leave a trail of remixes in their wake, and Kytami's 2012 self-titled album is no different. East Van Digital has collected seven of the best in one package, showcasing the work of Canada's finest party-rockers.
DJs Wood N Soo have collaborated together for over a decade, turning their predilection for hip-hop, funk, disco and reggae crate-dug sample curating into jaw-dropping 4-turntable sets on the same stage as Z-Trip, Afrika Bambaataa, Q-Bert, Stanton Warriors, and South Rakkas Crew. Wood 'n' Soo take "Stay" from a liquid chill ballad into the kind of fun and funky glitch-hop realm inhabited by Jpod.
You couldn't dream of a more suitable companion to an already spectacular album. That's why East Van Digital is here, to help realize those dreams. With someone like Kytami, dreaming comes easy.
