Event description

Description

Let's celebrate the release of Mecha Maiko's new album Let's! with ORO records, the newly founded Toronto-based label by MSTRKRFT.

Tonight we dance, for tomorrow we vote.

Performances by:

Mecha Maiko
Super special Let's! DJ set featuring cuts from the new album. 90s vocal dance vibes, Japanese synthpop and leftfield offerings that are still quite danceable. We think Yellow Magic Orchestra would approve.

Jessiquoi
Her first Toronto appearance! Hailing from from Australia and now based in Switzerland, Jessiquoi is a house producer/rapper/singer/multi-talented neon demon. To see her live is to be blessed.

WeTurnToRed
Three words: live analog techno. From the flower-adorned booth at Promise Cherry Beach, to the basement clubs of India, she's played them all.

Butr the butcher serves the freshest old-school electro, techno, idm and italo cuts. In addition to his solo project, he's a member of the hard-hitting electro act BLACK_ and Good & Butr, both of which have several releases on ORO. He'll slice you nice.

About Let's!
Text by Christian XI

Mecha Maiko is back to blow you away with her most dance-oriented record to date. For Let’s! she has drawn inspiration from her favourite upbeat 90s dance and freestyle jams to create a sound that is uniquely hers. Aimed at a more DJ-friendly approach, these tracks will find a happy home on the dance floor. Mecha Maiko has taken a stylized, deliberate approach to the writing process with hardware accompaniments that expand on the stylistic framework laid out in Okiya, released earlier this year. This record draws on the anxiety felt in a late-stage capitalist society and seeks to agitate that uncomfortable energy within us to shake us from our collective paralysis of shock. Inspiring, uplifting and motivating, these songs are unmistakably laser-lit dirges of the dystopia.

Anyone who has been following her trajectory will be thrilled to hear some familiar sounds as this record gives recognition to Mecha Maiko’s hidden gems to be found on Unloved and Unreleased, reinvented and enhanced alongside a slew of new sonic explorations ranging from techno-tinged power jams to delicate calls to
introspection. Her single ‘Phones’ is currently available and serves as an indication that this record is a strong entry in Mecha Maiko’s discography.
