Montreal Dances Across Borders

· by Elsa Fortant

At the initiative of the local music platform Mes enceintes font défaut (MEFD) and ottoman.grüw, ten artists from Montreal’s underground electronic scene join forces to release a first compilation, the proceeds of which will be donated in full to the non-profit organization Solidarity Across Borders. Ten carefully selected tracks representative of the different styles that animated Montreal’s nightlife before COVID. That said, it’s always possible to have a good time in your living room, and that’s what CMD’s opening track, “Nanobodies of Love”, invites. Things take a European direction with Police Des Mœurs, walking on the new wave side, and there’s a Belgian aspect to the martial rhythm of “The Sound of Joy Is Enlightenment”, perfectly adapted to jumpstyle. The first part of the album, more techno-oriented, gives way to tracks closer to experimental and EBM, with a detour through the melodic Eurodance of Sprælle. Aquaventure strikes the sensitive chord of dub techno with accuracy. If the colours of the album seem cold, they nevertheless raise the temperature. The sound spectra awaken memories of rib cages rattling to the rhythm of the kick, dripping ceilings and beer-stained dancefloors. Montreal Dances Across Borders, and we dance with it.
