Footprintz Parc Jean-Drapeau, Montreal, QC June 4
Having had the crowd warmed up expertly by Pezzner's opening DJ set, the audience at Piknic Electronik was instantly charmed by Footprintz's Hot Chip-meets-Fujiya & Miyagi brand of summery synth pop. Although probably unknown to most of the audience, Footprintz clearly had a few fans in attendance going by the cheers for their recent single "Utopia." In a dance- and instrumental-oriented festival such as MUTEK, the delicate playfulness of the Montreal duo's sound was somewhat of a palate cleanser. Great bass lines, sweet vocals and an accessible '80s synth sound got the crowd assembled on the grass dancing in no time.
