Nicolas Dupuis is never far from home. As Anomalie, the shape-shifting production project he unveiled in 2016, Dupuis has channeled his musical upbringing (his mother, a piano teacher; his father, a host on Radio-Canada), formal schooling, and stage-seasoned chops into two companion EPs — Metropole and Metropole II — the Chromeo collaboration Bend the Rules, and a series of singles lighting a pathway to his upcoming long-form debut, Galerie.

The Metropole series, released in 2017 and 2018, was the story of a city — Dupuis’ native Montreal, where he still resides — visiting familiar landmarks, cosmopolitan rhythms, and well-worn streets. By early 2020, Dupuis’ love letters to home had taken him around the world and back, powering two sold-out tours spanning North America (Red Rocks Music Festival, Montreal Jazz Festival, Electric Forest), Europe, and Asia — plus, a social audience now into the millions, and earned endorsements from contemporaries like Charlie Puth, Snarky Puppy and others. On-stage, Dupuis honed an astute balance of electronic production, progressive jazz harmonics, and hip-hop rhythms with a four-piece group, reinventing genres known for their slippery, expansive definitions.

falcxne is the brainchild of Mississauga producer-turned-artist Estevan Falcone. Earning his laurels as a jazz piano session player, he took the SoundCloud scene by storm in 2014 when his first ever release won a feature on Australian producer Ta-ku’s magnum opus, ‘Drive Slow, Homie’.

falcxne has since gone on to release 6 full-lengths and a slew of singles, all of which have garnered international attention and editorial playlisting. Most notable is his ‘Timbits’ series, dedicated to the late J Dilla, which celebrates its 10 year anniversary this year. His expansive list of collaborators includes The Kount, Ta-ku, Blu, Flamingosis, Robotaki and many more.
