DZ Deathrays "Dollar Chills (Cadence Weapon Remix)"
Aussie garage duo DZ Deathrays get the Cadence Weapon remix treatment turning "Dollar Chills" into a beat-heavy track that blends minimal synths with heavily altered vocals. Sorta like those jive rhythm trax breakdancing records from the ‘80s crossed with nu shooz.


Liars drop "Brats (Cadence Weapon Remix)"

Cadence Weapon has stepped in to remix Liars "Brats" turning the track into a hip hop monster that even includes him dropping a verse above deep bass drops.

The remix is one of three that will be released on the upcoming "Brats" single, due out on 12" and digital download October 16 from Mute.

The former touringmate of Liars will embark on the “Hope In Dirt City” tour this fall. Check out the dates here.

CADENCE WEAPON ANNOUNCES HOPE IN DIRT CITY TOUR

Having already toured with Liars and Japandroids on sold out tours this year Cadence Weapon is taking his exhilarating live show to fans across North America this fall in a headlining tour for his acclaimed album, Hope In Dirt City, out now on Upper Class.

Rollie Pemberton's live show is a hypercharged, utterly captivating performance. Cadence Weapon's influences, while rooted in hip-hop, push traditional genre boundaries by incorporating elements of IDM, soul, disco and old school rap. The compositional complexity of his music combined with Pemberton's intelligent, thought-provoking lyrical prowess translates into one of the most memorable live shows around.

Cadence Weapon Shortlisted for Polaris Music Prize

Cadence Weapon Hope In Dirt City honoured on the Polaris Music Prize Shortlist

The 2012 Polaris Short List was announced yesterday (July 17) at The Drake Hotel in Toronto, ON.

Polaris Founder and Executive Director Steve Jordan was pretty excited about the List.

"Our jury is showing an ever growing passion and dedication to reviewing, discussing and advocating their selections. This has resulted in a Short List of records that are musically focused, intense and in some cases highly personal. The process of selecting a winner should prove to be an invigorating challenge for our Grand Jury."

The 200+ writers, editors, producers and media figures who make up the Polaris Music Prize jury pool chose the Short List by submitting ballots listing their Top 5 albums from the previously announced Long List of 40 eligible albums.

It's on to the big show, the Polaris Gala, being held in Toronto on September 24, where a Grand Jury made up of 11 Polaris jurors will be sequestered Papal conclave-style until they decide which one of the 10 Short List albums will be declared the best Canadian album of 2012.

The full Gala event, including live performances from a number of the artists, will be webcast at MuchMusic.com. Additionally, a one-hour Gala highlight show will be broadcast on Much Sept. 29 at 10 p.m. 

 View the shortlist here.
