Recorded at Artscape Gibraltar Point (Camp Wavelength), August 20, 2016.Spek Won - E(ART)H
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.
Wavelength's ongoing alliance with Manifesto (whose festival is coming up September 9th to 18th) brought Spek Won to the Island. Backed with a full live band and Shi Wisdom on backing vox, there was a smooth, Roots-y edge to his hip-hop tracks. The sound was more head-nodding than bounce-inducing, but that fit the afternoon vibe quite perfectly.
