What the The Coost crew are listening to right now….
Vancouver label 1080p are laughing at us from the end of the rainbow. So far in 2015 they’ve spat out 16 (count ’em!) solid gold releases and show no signs of letting up. Along with fellow Vancouver label Mood Hut, these selectors are setting trends and turning heads with a slow-spun house groove that is at once stripped back and new-age. Project Pablo (Patrick Holland) slots into the catalogue nicely.
After growing up on the West Coast of Canada, Holland recently packed his bags and headed for the cheaper rents of Montréal, where I Want to Believe came together. As told to Inverted Audio, “the cost of living is almost halved in Montréal in comparison to Vancouver. I knew I could move here and focus on music without the distraction of money worries. There are a lot of folks that came here for a similar reason, making for a pleasant transition.” We say Vancouver’s loss is Montréal’s gain.
Project Pablo tracks seem heavily influenced by cityscapes and climate: somewhat grey and gloomy, yet infused with jazzy splashes of sun and a spacey urge to party. In other words, they fit right in to my hometown of Melbourne this winter.
