Recorded at BIG on Bloor Festival – St. Clarens Stage, July 23, 2016.

Prince Nifty - unknown

Shutting down Bloor from Dufferin to Lansdowne, BIG on Bloor landed in the midst of a heatwave that made an afternoon tour down the middle of the street feel like a field trip to the surface of the sun. Things were more tolerable under the leafy trees at St. Clarens, where one of the day's stages was quite excellently curated by Justin from Holy Oak. Hewing towards funky and r'n'b sounds, this felt like a mini-block party within the larger event. Working in his "dancefloor" mode, Matt Smith reminded the crowd at the outset that they needn't feel obliged to watch him as he bent, crimped and spliced his beats. With the day's last stretch of harsh sunshine pressing down like a blanket, the dance crew on hand looked as if they decided it was time to sweat to keep from melting.
