Amber Long & Robert Mason (Modern Agenda Showcase)
9:30 pm to 2:30 am
Institution, Back 2 House and Memetic co-present:
Amber Long (Modern Agenda, Toronto)
Long’s svelte, edgy techno sound is uniquely hers. Progressive. Melodic. Dark. The accomplished Canadian DJ/vocalist runs Toronto-based label Modern Agenda, as well as sublabels, Modern Architect and Honey Drops. Her lyrics and voice are well-known in the underground electronic music community. As a DJ, Amber is passionate and animated - she tears up dance floors around the world. On a personal note, we had the opportunity to meet Amber last year in Amsterdam at the Modern Agenda boat party. Words that come to mind: gracious, warm, friendly and quick-to-smile. Don’t miss seeing her here in Winnipeg. We certainly can’t wait!
Robert Mason (Modern Agenda, Toronto)
DJ/Producer Robert Mason is a classically trained violinist. His strong grounding in music theory and composition shines through in his fantastic progressive house and techno productions. His experimentation in analog electronics and computer-aided music production has led to releases on a variety of globally renowned record labels. When not busy in studio, Robert runs Modern Agenda, along with Amber Long.Robert’s international collaborations in production have taken him around the world to perform. We met Robert Mason last year on vacation: super nice guy, always smiling, with a sharp sense of humour. His comfort level behind the decks will be immediately apparent to the lucky, elated dancers in front of him!
