This week’s Remix Rainbow featured artist is one of the most fascinatingly prolific musicians out there. I first met Motëm years ago at a basement punk show and since then have become a true fan. This is the kind of artist who is always focused on the next sound and the next song, and has released countless albums, EPs, and singles that range from electro funk to hip hop to his latest obsession, the Scandinavian sub-genre Skweee. In partnership with designer (and fellow Hamilton resident) Errol Richardson, he’s created dozens of wildly inventive music videos, in addition to maintaining his own imprint and blog, known as the Gebbz Steelo Boutique.
The song I’ve chosen to remix was featured on his latest release, Tales From The Cryptid, and is called “True Douglas”. And what is a “True Douglas”, exactly? It’s what I want to be and what Motëm has always been. Take a listen and come check him out for yourself at our NXNE Showcase at Wrongbar June 18th.
