Kilmanjaro is a unique and emerging 4-piece from Toronto, performing the densely layered and immersive electronic compositions of Kaan Gunesberk and Ian Culley. Two drummers Luke Graves and Ryan Macdonald weave through interlocking parts to create a bed of driving rhythm that sits underneath lush synth textures and dream-like vocal melodies. Culley and Gunesberk are both active songwriters and musicians outside of Kilmanjaro, with Culley contributing songwriting efforts to Daniel Caesar’s “Get You” and Gunesberk adapting his signature vocals on Drake’s “Right Hand.”
In January 2017, they released their debut LP A Place Unknown To All You Ever Say under NYK records. The album explores a spectrum of lofty and grimy textures amongst Gunesberk’s ethereal vocals, invoking feelings of a nocturnal daydream as he reflects on the different manifestation of his personality and relationships around him.
The band's thoughts on the song:
“This song is the climax point in the album. All the feelings conveyed throughout the album come to this point of realization. There’s a lot of tension in the first half of the song. But it reaches a point where you’re freed from that prison of emotion that’s been holding you for the whole album. There’s this sense of awakening.”

Élvio Rodrigues is a composer and producer from Madeira island, now based in Lisbon, Portugal. In spite of being a player of multiple instruments, in the last couple of years, Élvio has been experimenting with piano, field recordings, and ambient soundscapes. The result is embodied in Slowburner’s debut EP - Before I Return To Dust - which was bself-released in digital and CD formats on March 14th 2017.
The EP deals with the realization that time is limited. Most of the time we’re just living life on autopilot and forget our dreams and hopes for the future. We somehow expect for things to fall into place, except things don’t always work out that way. In that sense, ‘Before I Return To Dust’ is a statement - the time to accomplish all those things we’ve always wanted is now. Time’s ticking.

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
