Lex & Wood Bio:
Montreal boys Alessandro and Benjamin AKA Lex & Wood are a duo at the fore of city’s next generation. The rising producers have already featured on the likes of Armada Subjekt, Eton Messy and Great Stuff Recordings. We can expect more releases soon on Armada Subjekt as well as Eton Messy!
Lex & Wood diffuse a dynamite deep tech base with an irresistible and raw energy. The pair excel in blending an engrossing ensemble of heavy kick drums and lush hi-hats alongside a splash of melodic wonder.
Alessandro and Ben share the same passion for sound and a distinct artistic vision, completing each other in the ideal manner. Ben, the initial producer and previously a drummer with a taste for heavy metal, taught the skills in the studio to Alessandro. While it was the latter, a seasoned spinner, that brought the experience from behind the ones and twos.
Lex & Wood is the medium where their creativity and chemistry is put to work and the recipe is fast proving effective as support streams in from big hitters like Adrian Hour, Bob Sinclar, Danny Howard, DJ S.K.T., EDX, Eelke Kleijn, Ferreck Dawn, Illyus & Barrientos, Latmun, Marco Lys, My Digital Enemy, Nora En Pure, and many more.
— xtine bio:
From being a casual blogger and festival dancer, to working at THUMP Canada (VICE’s electronic music publication), and now to working with many of the biggest YouTube channels curating electronic music at The District, DJing is something that came naturally to xtine.
Having spent time exploring Toronto's underground scene, xtine found herself maneuvering through the city’s obscure spaces and empty studio apartments-turned venues in Chinatown. Everything from acid house and techno, hip hop, memories of nameless buildings flowed over with her to Vancouver where she embodies east and west.
As she catches waves all around the Vancouver scene, you’ll find her playing her favourite lofi//acid//deep//tech//house sounds at Selectors Records for her bi-weekly show on n10.as radio, or at Vancouver’s top underground venue: VAL, her monthly event: Deepdive, and many other vibrant events and spaces around Vancouver.
The making of xtine’s YouTube channel, bedroombliss, has authentically transformed visual expressions of what she wants you to hear. The idea of making your own, bedroombliss encompasses showcasing auric imagination and realms of creativity beyond the physical plane right from home. You can find xtine storytelling with layered sets; deep, minimal, acid, and techy lofi sounds currently filling her crate.
