Artist: M.A BEAT!
Recorded at Artscape Gibraltar Point (Camp Wavelength), August 19, 2016.M.A BEAT! - Morocco
Following and expanding on the template of last year's successful festival, Wavelength returned to the island with a meticulously-executed event that included an exciting range of music and a beach full of art beside festival headliner Lake Ontario. It also managed to be a stress-reducing rather than a stress-inducing time — rather like a weekend at the cottage, even if the city was just out of view.
This crew from France were making their first Canadian foray and, as such, were something of an unknown quality as they lead off the festival. But their mix of sample-based experimental grooves, dual percussion, proggy keyboards and a hint of bass clarinet was a tasty mix, propelling itself with forward momentum but presenting lotsa tasty textures along the way.
