Published Jul 12, 2012As part of Exclaim! and AUX's ongoing Scion Sessions, we will be touching down at shows and festivals all over the country, bringing you interviews and exclusive, intimate performances from artists like Badbadnotgood, Austra, Prince Rama and more.
This time out, we have an edition with Toronto's Torro Torro, who before taking the stage at their increasingly popular monthly SLOWED night in Toronto took time to discuss their love of vinyl and detail their latest seven-inch, the limited-run "Blue Blouse." An original moombahton staple of their set, the release is backed with a remix of Wax Motif & Neoteric's "Go Deep," with 77 copies and available exclusively at SLOWED through the Scion Sessions.
But if you can't make it to SLOWED, fear not: you can also win a copy of the seven-inch here at Exclaim!. At that location, you can also stream both tracks from the release.
In addition to Torro Torro's Scion Session, in the second video below we explore the never-ending work ethic of Bro Safari -- also of Evol Intent and Ludachrist -- via the disparate aspects of the EDM community being brought together by the "Bros Gone Wild Tour."
Also in that clip, Baauer, part of NYC's Trouble & Bass collective, explains his self-described tag of "hip-hop born from the internet," where he finds his samples and how the internet affects the final product.
Check out the interviews and then follow us to other Sessions at the dates below. For a shot at guestlist, and the beat on Scion Sessions music projects, visit ScionSessions.ca and Facebook.com/ScionSessions.
