"Montag's Electronic Spring Mix"

It's spring time at last!

A season change means a music change, and that's why I put together great sunny exclusive tracks by artists from across the country such as sexy Donzelle, and dreamy Zachary Gray, plus exclusive new tracks from electronic music masters Junior Boys and Hexes and Ohs.

I hope you enjoy some of the podcast's freshly released tracks and that they'll feel like sunshine to your ears, just like a boost of sonic vitamin D. We very much needed it, didn't we? Hibernation time is over: we can now press play, sing along and feel the heat going up up up. - CBC Radio 3

"St. John’s electronic music boom?"

It seems a mess of new, local electronic music has emerged—possibly from the depths of Mom and Dad’s basement.
At least five or six projects have popped up on Myspace in the last year or so—ranging from the quirky Nintendo nostalgia of Kraid to the disjointed abrasiveness of Buried in Alaska.
Not only are more acts surfacing, but some of these musicians are planning on getting out more. Nick Jackson of Everythings Automatic says he wants to collaborate with other musicians in the city and play live as well. He’s also releasing an album this summer.
“I’m really glad to see more electronic music pop up here. Especially since a lot of the stuff I’ve heard is really great,” he says. “All the people I’ve talked to with their own projects seem to have a really great attitude about music and the scene in St. John’s.”
Singer songwriter Adam Baxter makes electronic music as a side project. Tic Tac Tony Danza is a sloppy techno affair, but it’s self-aware and likeable. He says he only posted his mp3s for fun.
“Tic Tac Tony Danza is something I did while I was in NS in 2006,” he says. “I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could write and record an EP using only my keyboard and a drum machine.”
“I had no confidence in it,” he says. “I don’t know anything about techno!”
His latest song, “Cunt,” featuring the cries of his cat Otis, has received over 70 plays in just the last few weeks.

Everything's Automatic is an electronic/emotronic music project founded in the beginning of 2008 by Nick Jackson. After taking a long-term break from playing with a couple of groups in St. John’s, Nick took his korg synthesizer, an old laptop computer and began writing. Since then, Nick has been writing, recording and experimenting with sound and electronic music. Everything's Automatic has received airtime on CBC Radio programs and was featured on ECMA Radio in 2009. The song "two" was featured on 'Sound Art? Sounds Eclectic', a showcase of sound art and electronic music in Atlantic Canada.

At this time, Nick was living in Halifax, NS studying audio engineering and collaborating with many musicians in the area. He began a project with a good friend, Donovan Parsons; also from Newfoundland. Nick and Donovan wrote and recorded music together under the alias District, but the electronic and experimental noise project was short lived. The two went in other creative directions with other collaborative projects and are still actively writing music together. Donovan has even contributed to music by Everything’s Automatic under the alias ‘spaceman’.

In the last year Nick has returned to St. John’s. Everything’s Automatic has released two EPs online, and in recent months has been working with the folks at remix86 and Yung Dumb. Yung Dumb is a collection of DJs and electronic musicians, performing two to four times per month. Yung Dumb plan to continue to hold shows and other functions in months to come and are planning on putting together a tour for later in 2011.

Currently, Everything's Automatic continues to perform with Yung Dumb; these performances include but are not limited to a mashup of original songs, samples and loops. Everything’s Automatic is working on new material and hopes to release a full-length record later this year. All music by Everything’s Automatic is currently free to listen to or download where available.
