“Mangling the listener’s preconceptions” OKAYPLAYER
“A great album” URB
“One of the years finer discoveries” NOW
Not only have they shared the stage with DJ greats such as Kid Koala and D-Styles at Low End Theory, they’ve performed alongside RJD2 and Vast Aire in TO, and right now they’re working to bring their brand of turntablism to the performance THEATRE at Toronto’s internationally acclaimed Fringe Festival! DJ’s Eric and Cheldon also run Off Centre DJ School in Toronto: yep, it’s their day job to teach kids how to spin. Their latest release “Scatterpopia” features both original and sampled material, as well as a collaboration with Ninja Tune’s Ghislain Poirier.
Magnolius are two emcees from Toronto who have definitely created their own sub-genre of hip hop. It’s not quite nerd rap, backpacker or “caveman” hip hop, but you might (very loosely) compare it to artists such as Listener or Aesop Rock, laced with jazz, funk and rock instrumentation. Their live performances are always tightly constructed, and together with iNSiDEaMiND will provide an innovative show that you’ve never seen, nor heard. Some true gems from the Northern underground! They’ve also toured Brazil, Japan and parts of Europe with friends from PPF House Leo37.”
