Stream Du Tonc’s Remix of Muneshine’s ‘Full Throttle’ for Free

Muneshine had this to say about Du Tonc‘s remix of his track ‘Full Throttle’ in a statement; “Du Tonc’s ‘Darkness’ was a really big song for me. I came across it on Soundcloud when I was first starting to explore making music that wasn’t at least somewhat related to hip hop. I’ve always been a fan of disco, nu-disco and dance music in-general, but there was something special about that track that really grabbed me and continues to stick with me. When ‘Full Throttle’ was mixed and mastered and it came time to consider artists to remix it, Du Tonc was top-of-mind. They found a way to maintain some of it’s original energy, but really shot it deep into outer space as well. I’m so grateful they were down to work together with us on this project, they crushed it!

Lowest of the Low Share Lyric Video for ‘Powerlines’

Veteran Toronto indie rockers Lowest of the Low have shared the lyric video for ‘Powerlines’ from fourth album Do the Right Now, out on September 8 via Pheromone Records.

“‘Powerlines’ is a song about my experiences writing the first Low album, Shakespeare My Butt. I had recently broken up with a long time partner and moved into a punk rock squat with some crazy characters I called friends. Every day I walked through the city with a notebook and drank in bars and went to galleries and shows and hung out in my little bohemian circle of anarchists, punks and poets. I became the protagonist in the movie of my life and the city was a cinematic sidekick and factored into the lyrics like a companion,” frontman Ron Hawkins said in a statement.

The vid is a collaboration with photographer Tom Ryaboi, a pioneer in the art of roof topping. The video reflects Hawkins’ changing relationship with his hometown of Toronto over the years.
