From Montreal’s Igloofest, to the gone-but-never-forgotten Brrrrr Winter Music Festival in Toronto, Canadians are incredibly fortunate to host a plenitude of outdoor-winter events throughout the years. Though winter is close to being over and the inaugural start to festival season approaches, Snowbombing Canada is here to remind everyone that there’s never a wrong time to party in the snow.

Fusing the worlds of winter-sports and dance music into a winter-wonderland for four days and nights, Snowbombing Canada takes place from April 5–9 amidst Sun Peaks Valley; one of the hidden treasures of Canada’s West coast. With success in booking distinguished and complementary dance/hip-hop headliners, last year’s event saw Kaskade and Ludacris close out the event.

As the 2018 edition nears, fan-favorite duo ODESZA and hip-hop queen Cardi B are set to headline the “Forest Stage”, appropriately located in between the panoramic views of snow-capped mountains and towering trees. Boasting a plethora of additional acts like Black Tiger Sex Machine, Gorgon City and Troyboi, Snowbombing has curated a detailed lineup that suits the festival’s exuberant vibe.

Snowboarders and skiers are treated to the best of both worlds; shredding during the day and dancing at night. Activities like ‘Alpine Yoga’, ‘The Snowlympics’ and some cheeky ‘Chair Life Speed Dating’ add unique attributes that turn guests from attendees, into Snowbombing veterans.

TroyBoi reworks Billie Eilish’s ‘my boy’ into astonishing trap-laden ‘MyBoi’

TroyBoi

Billie Eilish left an indelible mark on pop music in 2017 and proved to be a fervent artist whose haunting, harmony-filled ballads diminish any and all suspected innocence. Despite her young age, Eilish’s immensely talented and brimming with fervent passion. After the release of her debut album, don’t smile at me, mid-2017, she’s already seen an official remix for “COPYCAT” from the vastly-ascending indie-pop duo, Sofi Tukker, and now, London’s trap auteur TroyBoi has taken on “my boy.”

With vocals as sultry and dulcetly-delivered as Eilish’s, it’s small wonder TroyBoi was able to create a compelling rework. Though as much as Eilish’s vocals are compelling, TroyBoi’s tempo modifications candidly elevate “my boy” to the tempestuous “MyBoi.” With chopped vocals, intricate hi-hats, substantial kicks, and bass-laden flair, TroyBoi sees Eilish’s “my boy” and raises it to anthemic trap heights.

TroyBoi – Flamez (Alexander Lewis Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

When TroyBoi‘s “Flamez” came out last August, fans were instantly drawn in by the infectious, heavy horns in the introduction. Though the track tapers off into a more trap-based tune as it progresses, the horns serve as an iconic lead-in to the Left is Right song.

Months later, trombone guru Alexander Lewis has honed in on the horn part of “Flamez.” He’s remixed the track into a horn-centric anthem, booming with both bass and intoxicating, brassy stabs. With a slight key change and a shift in focus, Lewis has given “Flamez” a praise-worthy reworking.
