Call And Response (single) 2010
Ne Wfut Ure EP 2008



“If I ever write a book it’s going to be called, life as a picky eater” says Vice. The Vancouver born solo aritst is known for being particular about more than just food. And, since he can’t handle anything not being exactly to his liking, he simply does everything himslef. Vice is entirely self produced and for the most part he engineers his own sessions. He maintains , “ninety five percent of the time, I’m all by myself in [the studio]”

His father, a Painter and his mother, a University Proffesor, there were two constants throughout Vice’s youth, art and education. While he dabbled in several visual mediums, Vice’s love for music - and his natural ability - made sure that he ended up the recording studio. As for his education, Vice earned an honors degree in philosophy from UBC. And, unlike his college panning peers in the industry, he’ll tell you, “it was the best thing [he] ever did.”

In 2008, working as a bartender, Vice recorded a number of songs from which he chose eight and released an EP under the name Ne Wfut Ure or “New Future”. The album was a mostly self-indulgent experiment. The beats were intentionally rough and sparse. And the lryrics were often cryptic with many esoteric references and inside jokes. While the stage show met with good reviews, most people had trouble penetrating the album. Vice admits, “half the time, even I can’t figure what I was talking about...”

Learning from his mistakes (or perhaps just content to have been able to make them) Vice set out to make the album he says he knew he was capable of making; one full infectious beats, catchy hooks and intellegent but not unintelligable lyrics. Call and Respose is the first offering from the new set of recordings. It is the first in what will be a long string of singles, released at various invervals. Vice has no plans to release an album, arguing, “what’s the point, everybody just buys one-offs anyway. The upshot is that each track, as it comes out, is available with its own branding and cover art. Pretty sick if you ask me.”
