Bastard Jazz presents tasty 7″ coming from two talents from up North, Toronto’s freewheeling producer/DJ Birthday Boy and Canadian songstress Trish (plus songwriter and backup vocalist Joe Law) who link up for a lesson in positive vibrations and soulful, R&B-infused future grooves. “Magic” toys with a mellow bassline and warm guitar loop from Tom Misch while “Chance To Go Far” is a Kaytra-esque hip-hop number with big drums and hook that will stay with you all day. Taken from their Joseph EP, also out Jan 19th on Bastard Jazz.
Birthday Boy is a music producer and DJ renowned for his eclectic and inventive musical sense, shown in both his productions and live sets. Drawing from jazz, house, hip-hop and funk, Birthday Boy has cultivated a dynamic sound that ebbs and flows across genres, never fitting squarely into a single category. First establishing himself with a string of up-tempo remixes and genre-bending originals, Birthday Boy has earned the praise of outlets such as Pitchfork, the FADER, Hypebeast, and many more outlets through collaborations with fellow Toronto artists Allie and Drew Howard.
As he continues to impress audiences on stages at WayHome and SXSW, Birthday Boy also has his hand in several upcoming projects from rising Canadian and International artists all while continuing to prep his debut album.
