Unbuttoned
Forming in 2010, Casey MQ, Jonathan Milner, Miles Gibbons, Alexei Orechin and Kamilah Apong ventured into the depths of Casey’s basement. They made their way back out by becoming Unbuttoned, creating music that was a fresh alternative - funky sounds of R&B and Pop, supported by undertones of hip hop and electronica. Their music has challenged the tunnel vision of genre labels and highlights the beauty of crossover music.
Unbuttoned spends their time crafting their album Casey’s MQ self-made Level Me Studios. Their debut EP Electric Kingdom, released independently in North America and through P-Vine Records in Japan, received attention and guidance from both Kevin Killen (Grammy award winning engineer/producer) and the late John Carter (Capital Records). "Casey's development as a unique songwriter has been evident to me for the last six years. With his latest collaboration – the beautifully crafted "Unbuttoned - Electric Kingdom" Casey delivers a seven song EP that is magical, innovative and belies his age as a songwriter. Ones to watch", says Killen.
Unbuttoned’s movements have not gone unnoticed across the globe, receiving attention and airplay from various media outlets in Poland, Spain, and Germany, as well as CBC's Jian Ghomeshi. Unbuttoned plans to expand even more so with their upcoming sophomore release, "planes", available June 24th, 2014.

Mughal Muesli Trio
While grounded in the saxophone trio tradition of Sonny Rollins, Ornette Coleman, and Henry Threadgill, Mughal Muesli is a band that seeks to expand and transcend the associations attached to their configuration. Saxophonist Xavier Del Castillo, drummer Vicente Hansen, and bassist Mat Muntz draw on elements from early European polyphony, Hindustani classical music, and 20th/21st century microtonality to inform their unique take on the trio format. Their debut album Imperial Cereal features original compositions, deconstructed standards, and new interpretations of works by Ornette Coleman, Ivan Wyschnegradsky, and J.S. Bach.

ce qui nous traverse - & The Mighty River
The two formations from Montreal offer a dense sonic experience at the juncture of experimental music and harmonic getaways, with fugitive political breakthroughs.
A bit more than a proposition, - ce qui nous traverse - takes hold on what hangs around by a play of atmospheres, detailed wanderings. After two EPs (eponym (2013) ; "À l’écart" (2014)), the guitar duo has produced "des lignes", a first album released on Cuchabata records (Oct. 2016).
The Mighty River’s latest project is a concept album on the problem of whiteness and racialization. The band released their second album, "Horsebird", in July 2014, and are currently in the studio with their third album to be released on Acre Alley records.
