Cool Music Web Sites From The Realms Of Jazz, Techno-House
And World Music
1. ANTARA PRODUCTIONS RECORDS:
Papo Ross (with his Orquesta Pambiche) is one of the artists represented
with «panache» on this colourful site. ANTARA PRODUCTIONS is based in
Montreal and concerns itself with promoting the best Latino musicians and
Latino dance venues and cultural events in the metropolis. You can listen
to the artists in Shockwave sound extracts. ENGLISH-SPANISH.
2. LOST CHART RECORDS:
This beautiful site offers varied ways to discover reknowned artists from
Quebec and abroad, in the fields of jazz, progressive jazz and world
fusion. Founded by jazz composer and bandleader Sylvain Gagnon, the record
company and website constitute also a cultural meeting of minds with many
musical collaborations. You can find info about artists as diverse as the
Japanese torch singer Charito and the dynamic François Carrier Trio.
3. FIVE ONE FOUR (514) RECORDS:
Still in its beginnings, here's one of the creative outlets for Montreal
techno, house and ambient musicians and producers. The two first bands
introduced (very well indeed) are Juicebox and Pat et Thick. You can listen
to their sound climates and booms in RealAudio. FRENCH-ENGLISH.
