Canada's not really known for either their beat scene or soul blessed sounds in the music world today—and then there is Dominic Pierce. This fellow has got some serious talent and fine taste in music production. Merging together rooted styles that touch up on deep-house and jazz inspired notes, he's now teamed up with one of Calgary's most promising and exciting imprints, Close To Modern. Championing their 20th catalog, Dominic Pierce brings his EP, Elevate, that will surely have you floating across cosmic scopes of finesse sound waves.
The EP consists of 6 juiced up tracks that have an MPC geared sound any hip-hop experimentalist will absolutely love. It sizzles and warms us up in all the right ways. What's more, title track "Elevate" features the Grammy nominated singer, Muhsinah, on vocals (how's that for a seal of approval?) . Often feeling boundless, Elevate takes us on a delightful journey that absorbs listeners into his own musical bubble, and it's a nice place to be.
Officially dropping tomorrow, get a peek at Elevate with EARMILK's premiere of Dominic Pierce's track, "Envoyer". Just sit back and relax for this one, you're gonna love the ride.
