"I don't think it was that great a leap because my training as a as a player performer To be fair. I don't think i was ever very you've said so. You said yeah. I think i was ever very good or exceptional jazz specifically and classical. You know to be very good and exceptional is just you know you can memorize leave stuff. And so whether i was good at that or not doesn't really matter to me anymore but as a human person as like a year also still just like a person who hung out with friends who also had music taste and put me onto stuff and we would kind of like discover. Our musical tastes together. So yeah like you know listening to a lot of like hip hop in particular in the two thousand which i- i maintain as kind of like the wildest and i think most eclectic in a eclectic coming out of a very linear progression at that time. But i i think hip hop in the two thousands kind of occupied. That space of like anything can happen for the first time ever. Everyone sort of realize anything can happen in rap music and that would have been about the time i i got interested in in. Just what production is i didn't. I don't think i really knew what a producer was. Or what producers did but. I was fascinated by their work. So yola growing up listening to the neptune's who basically had a hit a hit on the radio every week of the year Timberland swizz beatz to a much lesser extent. But then like even a later after that like connie coming up right like all of these very distinct producers who had their own sound and you could recognize them by the work that they did in the way that they made beats no matter who was on those beat and so yeah later on. When i would eventually sort of figure out what production was how to do it how to get into it..

"What is gonna sing was thinking of pre pandemic. And now what you're going through in the shifts and that and you talking about this exploring or in finding or refining music like how do you think that's going to impact or once we get through this. How's that going to impact your music thing I don't really know that is going to impact in a way that it already. What like that that. I wasn't doing. Because i as i kind of started working on this last ep. It was sort of a a shedding of all these expectations. And and sort of rules. That you either. I place on myself arbitrarily or that. I kind of thought that the industry was placing on me. That you kind of have to fit into these boxes. Were that you kind of have to market things in very specific and try to entry ways end. Yeah so as. I worked on this record in particular it was just me being like well. What if i didn't though what would happen like what if i just made the music. I wanted to make how i wanted to make. What if i actually just committed to the ideas in the beliefs and things that i have and things that i hold to be true for myself as an artist and as a fan and lover of music. What if i did that. In the way that i made music and similarly. That's kind of what. I'm doing now in the way that i play right like i i. It's my show. it's my venue so to speak. It's my all of these things. So i don't have to think about the usual things. Okay so it's a hip hop show. So i just play that or it's a more corporate environment so i played you know more top forty stuff or whatever like i don't have to think about any of that stuff. I just get to fully. Just do what i want with the music that i believe in and and.

That's that's the thing that's kind of bite can't do anything about it. I can't do anything about it. The other thing is. I've also realized i how much i enjoy playing on on a live livestream on screen and all i think that has just very different advantages experience. It's a thing that none of us really were doing before or even if we did it was just not a thing that we ever thought about and now i just kind of has to be so you know like all making our livestreams better for those of us who were doing it. Relieves him branka. You their art. And i've come to you know really appreciate the nuances of it. I think we're losing their. I've experienced and you know. I think everyone knows that but at the same time. There's a lot of other stuff that you get with the livestream that you just don't get by playing in real spaces for one. I can also talk to everybody. Who's at the show you know. And i don't have to feel drunk people stumbling into the booth trying to make requests not gonna play not playing that song. Yeah it's great so it's it's very much just like again all the things that i talk about. You know loving being at home. I'm just hanging out. I don't have to get dressed up. I don't have to pay. Tt fair or pay for an uber to get home. I get to play whatever i want. I'm hanging out comfortable and you know if people wanna show up in. Hang out as well. They're free to do so and the only people who have to be there are people who want to be there. Episode true paulie. Just shut down our cameras. I just said that we could conserve bandwidth.

"You're listening to song. Explorer musicians take apart their songs and piece by piece. Tell the story of how they were made. My name is Rashid. You're way if you have proposed that to me before I started this process that Dan. I think you should make kind of hip hop influenced track. That's like a duet with an seventies soul singer out of being that's never gonNA work. Dense Nathan has been making records since two thousand one. He won Canada's. It is Polaris Music Prize in two thousand seven and this month. He's releasing the seven Caribou album suddenly in this episode. Dan Breaks down the song home. He talks about how he managed Haddish to get past several moments of creative uncertainty to figure out the final traffic. She's going home. She's this going. Maybe this is Dan snaith from Caribou you every day. I come down into my studio and make something. I kind of turn off the critical part of my brain. Thinks is this something it's GonNa be a Caribou track. Is this going to be something that goes on an album. I'm just having fun that every day. That's the process is to just enjoy that so that was very much the spirit in which I put this together other. I was browsing youtube when I first came across the sample. That's kind of core of this track. which is the track by Gloria? Barnes also called home home home and it's kind of a lost soul gem. I spend a lot of time in my life digging for records and dusty warehouse and flea markets and things now just as often. I'm looking for music on Youtube. And that's how I came across this track. I kind of miss that sense of stumbling across something when you're there in kind of backroom of a record could store or wherever you might find something but to be honest with you. The thing that I'm really interested in is the musical ideas and that's always just as thrilling no matter where you find.

"How many times today have you looked at your phone that is one of many themes? You're about to hear about on the new record from Aftab. Yes, we cannot say their full name on the radio. But you might also remember them because they were the hardcore band that won the Polaris music prize in two thousand nine and they're probably best known for making music. That sounds like this. Genta touto tone there from that was from their last record glass boys released four years ago. Now the band unveiled their new album dose, your dreams, and along the topics like social media and its impact on our culture. The record also brings us a really different sound for the hardcore band they love switching things out for their fans. You'll hear in this one some disco. There's some sixties pop, but like a lot of their previous albums, you'll still find a pretty hardcore punk songs in the mix. We haven't completely deserted. Who they are. They're just trying a little bit of new territory Damon Abraham Mike Hallett check and Jonah Falco they piled into the studio with Tom power. And the story might just make you think about all that social media that you're plugged into almost the moment that Damian Abraham sat down in the Q studio with Tom he admitted this record almost never saw the light of day once they finish their last album. He thought they might actually be done glass, boys. Really kind of the like and the end of the band. I thought it was like, you know, early the end of my. Need to be creative in the band. I think glass boys is ultimately a compromise. You know, Mike came to me. And he's like I want to do this crazy elaborate thing, and I'm like, I don't have any interest in doing that. I wanna do a strip down straight up hardcore record and with with eft up. It's impossible to get a straight up straightforward hardcore record. And we got glass boys, which I do like that record. I do stand by that being like if I never write another album worthy lyrics again in my life. I said everything I wanted to say on that record. You know, I think by between all our records. Mean? But like all the things that I felt I haven't said this yet. I think I said the manga last boys to be had a period at the end of that sentence. I think so. Yeah, we'll get felt like it felt like the end of a chapter in a big way. Like, I think. You know, it felt like the end of the book for me. But I definitely chapter Jonas. Tell me about the first sort of impulses to go into the studio after class, boys. The first impulse to go to the city to make those dreams. I would say that there was very little impulse to go into the studio to echo some of the things that Damian saying in a way. And to bring in what Mike was talking about glass boys being a challenge. It was kind of exhausting to get that done and get that on paper and the idea of having to go back into the studio and turn something out creatively. I feel that. There was a big void for us. It was lucky that we always have these em other projects that we can work on the zodiac series where you can sort of get ideas out of the way kind of as though you need to overcook a few things before you get what you get the recipe. Right. And and going back into does your dreams we had absolutely nothing prepares and nothing plans to the prospect of going into the studio was kind of the same as sitting at home were you? Where'd you wouldn't go into the studio at all? Damian just said, I actually I didn't have that worried. Not to try and take the rug out of what was the Daime saying about his creativity? And what he needed to say. I just always assumed that there's gonna be some project that aft- up is going to endeavour to be a part of this. And the studio really became a tool for us real conduit for songwriting became an instrument almost some somewhere between glass boys and does your dreams. So I just assumed it would be there to tell you the truth. I have no idea in what way but is inevitable. I I can't get over the range of genres on this record. I don't even really like to talk about genres that much. But I do hear like sorta disco and your dreams, it's pob. It's it's hardcore do op tendencies on this Mike was was the intention to try out different genres. Or was it just things were coming to you. And you wanted to put them out in the way, they were they were coming in your head. Like, we weren't really writing an album, we just had it was sort of like we had studio time, you're just writing music, and it wasn't until like a year later that the songs we had started to coalesce. To a fully realized thing. So I think me and just spent so much time together and everyone in the band is into so many different kinds of music, and sort of like scholars of music that we just had a lot in there. We wanted to sort of flex and just see what kind of stuff we could make. And it wasn't until a lot later that those songs started becoming. Eft up songs Daming as we kind of pointed out from talking to Michael Jonas affair, you weren't there for all of this. What was your reaction when the songs Cup brought to you kind of three stages? Jonah was there for the first stages? I got the songs demo couple. We there's there's definitely other versions of some of some of the songs, and it was one of those things where you know. Like, I forget which one it was. And I remember being in there and being like, how can I write to this also in the midst of kind of producing and hosting this wrestling TV show. So I was travelling like all the time really focused on that. And it was just so. Different. You know? And it was just so different. How different sonically I think it was different from what I wanted the band to be right? You know, and I think with trying to right? The way I write songs I was having a lot of problems. Like, it was not a productive session. I think we got a couple we've got a be side out of it. Four or five days and alerts writing we're really lazy. And I was just like what am I going to write about, you know, I wasn't writing to somebody is before the concept was kind of introduced, and we were just kind of like writing and trying different things out. And I couldn't really find it. And I remember going to Mike and being like, I don't I don't know why he doesn't really working. And then Mike came back and said, I wrote everything that I was like, you know, my natural reaction was like WalMart saying everything you wrote like all eventually write my own songs. And then you just kinda had it all figured out. You know, he had this whole kind of plan in place. And so for the first time instead of being like, well, how do I fit into your plan? I was like which is something that I think John has done a long time in the band been like how do I ate this plan in coming to fruition? And Joanie do that for me when I was writing songs with the band, certainly does it for Mike. And so that's what I decided I was going to try and do this record. Yes. And is that heard it's definitely hard. Like, I think I think it's hard to put your ego in check for for anything, you know, and especially in a band, especially being a lead singer in a band. I remember gore told me one time like townies are those like the worst namedrop thing ever. Gordon? He said to said to me one time that like elite singers where it differently. You know, like the lead singer, you have to take in all this energy, and that's positive and negative. And I think you do that night in a night out. You do that every time you write a record? And that's that's training. And you know, as a lead singer, you have to have this ego defense that's up in place. I've unending empathy for people in music that do silly things. None criminal horrible things. I should specify. But like people that do and say dumb dumb dumb thing. Because I think it's just like it does pickle your mind eventually being in in a band. I wanna talk more a little bit about the record. If you're just tuning in speaking with Damian Mike Jones from about does your dreams play a little bit from the record. Jonathan you know, that's an elusive Welsh singer called Nigel bunks how good enough. I can't wait to see you do that live. I tell you what that's easy that part's easy. I wanna take a page from.

Do what she was able to do if I would have gone that course of direction but she said, she? Was, asked to give a personal anecdote so that is. Interesting but you said at least that you weren't exactly surprised to see. Madonna in the headlines after the AMA's?

A little bit so Madonna was one of the very few representatives of the old guard of populism mentioned she's been shocking people there since eighty, four though I should say Jennifer Lopez was given the video.

Than that I should not know all of these people it'd be odd if, I did I'm? Always expecting award. Shows to, surprise me and. I'm also aware that there's a lot? Of artists, on YouTube that I don't know, about and, I think that's great I think that's exciting if, MTV is reaching out into. Those other areas I think they're doing their job tab what, did you think. Of it all I mean while I think that's true I think it's clear. They're trying to try and regain some relevancy with the younger viewers who are on over. On YouTube watching all these people these these, YouTubers have millions and millions of followers these are all the teens. That MTV wants right now if they are going to regain relevancy it's. Not with the generation after generation came up with MTV it's the younger viewership that's gonna. Refresh whatever it is that I'm TV becomes in the future but but it didn't work This was the lowest rated VM as ever what you what do you make of, that I think as. One of the writers for escort said this week. I was a show that tried to sort of be everything and ended up being nothing to. Nobody I mean here you. Had boomers wondering who tattooed post. Malone was hanging out. With Steven Tyler, who they might know whereas the teens were like I, don't know who this grandfather So if I want to say Why is? Post Malone playing with Jack Sparrow You know in in of trying to do that Masha of the celebrities on the stars that MTV usually always goes to with trying to regain relevant to in bringing. This whole new YouTube vanguard onto the scene I. Don't know that that uncomfortable Masha but the but the hard thing about measuring success in this era also is we're. Not measuring the viral video that? Came after did someone watch it, on Facebook did they watch it on Twitter like it's hard to measure the success and it's even hard to measure what. They even want this show to do anymore M. v as are. Coming up this week which is the much music video wards at least I mean how does this show like that. Stay relevant if the MTV amazing? Are struggling well if it was? Up to me you just make it very Canadian I mean that's what we want we want rain well hey of Seth You know. Seth Rogan since calibrate why can't we just think there's an opportunity to cater, to our audience they're going to keep getting smaller and I think that's what we, all need to do everyone needs to do what you've got to adjust what you measure success especially you know. For much music that's always been a a smaller slice and I think that. As long as you're catering to some. People and, again it's hard to measure because it's, going to be, watched on so many different platforms all the viral stuff that comes after what, is the success for the Canadian artists themselves to. Get the, exposure so I think it's just getting harder to measure what a success is? Anymore, tabby leave the last word to, you I mean as as youngsters. Are leaving, the tube oh my. God one hundred. Years, old, as as We're, all getting there are we gonna see these these award shows fade away how did, they stay relevant maybe the memory is is an interesting example and Lisa's point while I do think they could. Maybe have that nation going Canadian they actually haven't not I mean looking at. Their hosts that they've chosen Aquafina who. Is an, Asian American rapper actor she's having a, huge moment right, now she's in the biggest movie And even their their lineup of. Stars right now who have is I. Mean there's Halsey there is So many people that have, these big, summer hits right now And. Not, only that they also have decided to bring Chinese singer Chris woo Hoo is one of the biggest stars in. Asia and k pop has a huge global following right now so it does seem to me that somebody there has their finger on the pulse and nose sort of how to bring. All those factors, together that maybe didn't happen at the Vietnamese so you know or they're throwing spaghetti at. The wall spaghetti at the wall is always an interesting story See what sticks that's thanks for coming in thank, you Eliza Christie's in is.

"Alias PRI I'm, Tom power if you happen to be kicking around Toronto. This week if you were somewhere around southern Ontario maybe you, knew, someone, who, had tickets to this concert you might have heard a lot of people talking about Drake Aubrey, Drake Graham like even more than usual and God knows we talk about Drake a lot on this show. But this is the week that Drake brought his Aubrey in the three migos tour. Back to his hometown his tour with. The group, migos for three huge sold out shows of Scotiabank arena that's what was supposed to happen anyway the queue this panel are here to. Fill you in what actually went down at least a Christian San has gotten up super early in Vancouver. She's, the arts reporter and associate. Producer for. On the. Coast out at CBC Vancouver Lisa, has the. Coffee oh it's really doing its job I'm glad and. Tabassum Siddiqui joins me here in Toronto freelance writer she sits on the jury for the Polaris music prize I started A guest hosting Hugh she was just sitting down one destiny is is to. See a nice to see you so. Drake started, off with his this week in uncharted territory with people in Toronto who normally support him even when people are hard on them fill. Us in on the drama so our men jersey pride and joy of the six ended up postponing his. Hometown, dates of his scorpion to. Or not. Once but. Twice and this week he was, finally we're. Supposed to hit the Scotiabank arena with the Atlanta rap. Trio migos But on Monday the first of the three. Toronto shows was postponed at the, last minute so you know what promoter said was circumstances beyond their control Fans were not, told what the circumstances were but then they were pretty surprised to see. Me goes hitting the red carpet at the TV words right There is some speculation that that's where he was. Going, to be. Likely at this stage, Lisa are we are we concerned that. Drake and start angering his Canadian fans even, need to worry about it yeah come on he he may move but he's still Canadian House to apologize That's part of who he. Is if it's not a sincere apology we're all going to lose. Our minds, yeah of course I mean. I think that we to a certain extent. Get, used to postponements it is not great when you call in sick to school and your teacher sees you. At the mall so it's kind of data quivalent feels like with the awards on but yeah it better be a sincere apologies got. A lot, to make up for okay so I want to get to where he actually was in. Just a second before, we get to that I should say the people were already a little bit upset with. Draped, because this. Year he wasn't hosting, his Oviedo festival in Toronto this year But. It's a question does does Drake really oh Toronto that isn't normal for a city to feel this protective of an artist and feel so betrayed I'm not sure that our relationship with Drake can ever be classified as a normal or healthy Healthy I think there's a lot to do with Toronto the waiter on in. Themselves you, know, we we've always had a bit of this Imposter syndrome maybe or a little bit self deprecating and here Drake comes along. And he's a big champion for the city it's almost funny how he's become this. Huge cheerleader, because, Torontonians don't often do this for so So he's finally come out like there's so many, great things about the city and that's where I totally stand. Behind him where it's like you know what we don't actually talk about, ourselves that way so here's this guy. That comes along and does that for us but then died means we. Hold them up on the pedestal then whenever he's not maybe what we want him to be Got a bit disappointed but at, least Vancouver do you think we're all crazy for this yeah. I do I think you guys might need some collective therapy I mean he has to go off guys he's got a whole other well world you know that he has to, live up to so maybe you just need to like just kind of let, the umbilical cord hanging. By the way I can. Just to let you. Know I can hear my mom and my aunts and uncles sighing as I say we to represent Toronto, I just let you know I know. That now so people? Were? Speculating that Drake cancelled that Monday show so he could go to the MTV via maze but that actually wasn't what he did where did, he go, Tim so video showed up the next day that showed Drake visiting a young fan who had just said a. Heart. Transplant in an a kid saucepan. Chicago and I think it's pretty hard, after everything that happened. For fans to be too mad at him? After, that yeah. Take a listen to this clip we have here You asked me to. Come. Here I'm so happy I got. To see you.
