In a year that has limited the performance opportunities of artists around the world, Mount Mike has been able to externalise his musical expression through a series of location-based DJ streams, broadcast from some of the most beautiful places in British Columbia.
These wonderfully produced DJ streams give us a sense that Canada is beginning to feel like a second home for Mount Mike. His productions, collaborations with like minded BC artists and recent success with a Beatport Top 10 Indie Chart also point to an artist who is feelin’ good about where he is at. So it is with great pleasure that we present his next EP on Suckmusic ‘Queen of Hearts’.
“Written during the peak of COVID lockdown here in Vancouver, I found this time period to be a blessing. Among other reasons it was a great time for me to slow down and connect with my wife and during those Spring months we built a big veggie garden together. The tracks on this release were inspired by sunny days in our backyard planting garlic and listening to Stimming’s new EP. Many of the percussion sounds in these tracks were sampled during the garden’s construction & the melodies drawn from the uncertainty of the time” – Mount Mike
