Cut chemists Kaytranada and River Tiber may be from Montreal and Toronto, respectively, but it was a love for Brazilian music that bonded the up-and-coming Canadian producers.
In The Junction, a new animated video series from the Red Bull Music Academy, the 2016 Polaris Prize winner and the forlorn pop producer recall their introduction to music and how getting sushi on a snowy Montreal night led to their collaboration. The short video was directed by Montreal-based animator Hamish Lambert.
The Red Bull Music Academy was launched in 1998, and each year features a workshop for selected participants, culminating in live events and festivals. This year RBMA touches down in Montreal from Sept. 24 to Oct. 28. Visit their website for more information.
