The track quickly dives us into a special universe with a nagging production that gradually elevates, carried by the voice of Lia and the arrangements made by Le Vasco, before pulling us along in a whirlwind strewed by dreamy breaks.

After several months dedicated to the label’s releases, Nowadays Records doesn’t forget the tradition and is back with the NWDS x MTL Tape (Vol. 7), a new compilation, the first made in this way.

Invited in Montreal for the MEG Festival and later for the French Beat in July and September 2016, the Nowadays crew met and fell in love with the local vibe, musical scene, and lots of its ambassadors.
From those meetings and collaborations were born friendships, and the idea to pay a tribute to this rising scene. Through this compilation, Nowadays Records takes its will to bring its sound crushes to light and promote the talents of today and tomorrow a step further.

Except for the collaboration between Le Vasco, Lia and Robert Robert, the NWDS x MTL Tape is only made of Montreal’s artists invited for the occasion, whether they’ve been born and raised there or adopted by the city.
Carried by the richness and the diversity of the Montreal music scene, this compilation reflects the eclecticism and the talent of the local artists. You’ll find this unique sound characterizing the city, considered as one of the beatmaking capitals in the world.

There are many differents stories about beatmaking told there, from the electro pop (Ryan Playground, Thomas White, Robert Robert x Lia x Le Vasco, Matou x Tom Lemann, Frame), to the rough beatmkaking made in the pure tradition of the city (Ragers, DeusGod, Dr MaD, Charles Cozy, Jamvvis and Tibe) and the rap, whether it is in Canadian French (Alaclair Ensemble), in English (Planet Giza x Lou Phelps), or a unique and clever mix of the two (Dead Obies, Knlo x Snail Kid x Toast Dawg).

Above the will to present and share its love for the Montreal in this opus made of X tracks from which X are exclusives; Nowadays Records also announces new projects and new collaborations through this project.

As usual, the label also puts the light on a young promising visual artist, in the person of Teo Zamudio (also from Montreal), who’s illustration reminds us of the symbols and the atmosphere of this city.
