•• I M U R ••
Vancouver, BC

I M U R (I am you are), is an East Vancouver duo with a hybrid sound influenced by 90’s hip-hop/r&b, experimental electronic, soul, and progressive-pop. The duo consists of producer Mikey J Blige on live beat composition and electric guitar, and singer-songwriter Jenny Lea on keys, vocals, and looping.

Since releasing their debut EP “Slow Dive” last August, which garnered much acclaim from the Vancouver underground scene, and recently landed them #5 in Spotify’s Global Viral Top 50 charts, they were immediately noticed by industry professionals, gaining a significant amount of blog and radio attention.

No strangers to hard work, since the duo’s conception in July 2015, they have played Shambhala Music Festival, headlined and sold out some of Vancouver’s top venues, as well as performing in the Kootenays, and the Okanagan. In December they began a “Single-A-Month” campaign until their debut LP “Little Death” is released this summer. They are currently booked for a summer tour across BC & Alberta, including festivals such asWorld Ski and Snowboard Festival – WSSF, 4/20 Vancouver, Astral Harvest Music & Arts Festival, Center of Gravity, Hiatus Music Festival, andRIFFLANDIA FESTIVAL!

•• Simple Machines ••
Vancouver, BC

SIMPLE MACHINES is Vancouver based multi-instrumentalist and electronic producer Amine Bouzaher. Like the harmonogram depicted in his logo, Simple Machines’ performances begin with a single sonic strand. Live-looped guitar, violin, bass and keyboard are combined with sultry, hip-hop influenced beats to create performable arrangements that would otherwise be impossible without a full ensemble.

From the humble origins of a violin, a classical guitar and a loop pedal, Simple Machines has honed his live execution and aesthetic. Drawing on diverse influences, including IDM and hip hop artists like Bonobo, Fourtet and JDilla as well as live-loop artists like Bink Beats and French Kiwi Juice, Simple Machines fuses live instrumental performance with downtempo, electronic production.
