Toronto’s FinestSaturday, May 15th, 2010
If you’ve been in Toronto for the past years, you’ve probably noticed that the city has some serious electronic talent.
Part of that talent includes some of the city’s finest music blogs:
Salacious Sound posts some great party tracks on a very regular basis, and they’re often the first place I read about tours coming to Toronto. A recent post they wrote stakes the claim that Toronto might just be the Remix Capital of the World, and I think the might just be right.
Here’s a couple of choice tracks from Toronto artists they posted recently:
Autoerotique - Gladiator (Torro Torro Remix)
Barletta - Panther (Torro Torro’s SalaciousSound Remix)
As a bonus, their History of Electro series kicked off the other day, and promises to be a great series of posts.
Pugged Not Thugged is a blog that I’ve only been reading for a few weeks now, but I already like it a lot, especially the fact that there were the first place I heard the O-God Ducksauce remix:
Ducksauce - Barbara Streisand (O-God Remix)
ElectroTO is like a shrine to the city’s finest electro. In their “What’s Good Wednesday,” posts the blog’s writers Trackson and The Vamp give everyone a good heads up on the city’s best parties. The image at the top of this post comes from them (thanks, guys), and is one of the better redesigns of the Jay’s logo that I’ve ever seen. Close seconds are the one where the Blue Jay looks like an uzi and one I’ve seen of the Blue Jay wearing headphones.
A recent fave from ElectroTO:
Jesse Rose - Where Were You Last Night
Plus, ElectroTO has some wicked t-shirts available for sale.
Torontette has been blogging her little heart out for the past couple of months and while her tunes of choice aren’t always the pumping electro I prefer, she’s still got a feel for the city.
I especially like the Van Schie tracks she had up recently:
Matt Van Schie - Saturday Night (GLOVES Remix)
Finally, this blog post is dedicated to the memory of The Curb Crawlers - the first music blog I started reading (single tear rolling down my cheek) and despite having folded up shop, still one of the internet’s finest pieces of HTML and CSS.
