Red Bull Music Academy and Exclaim.ca are proud to bring to you, Destination Tokyo! A 17-city tour across Canada featuring Academy alumni ANGO (Montreal) and LUNICE (Montreal), both from LuckyMe Records, along with PrisonGarde (Vancouver) and Jacques Greene (Montreal).
All four artists on this bill reflect the very essence of what the academy is all about and the ever-changing landscape of independent music in Canada.
Lunice, known for his dynamic dance moves and live bass filled hip hop beats, is an artist on the rise. Fresh of release his first EP on LuckyMe Records – The Stacker Upper EP and remixes with Diplo, he is gaining notoriety around the globe as a producer to look out for.
ANGO, producer and DJ recently made waves with Nouveau Palais (a new outfit with Lunice and PrisonGarde) and not to mention, his track on Fireworks with none other than Katy B. An academy vet, ANGO has become a seasoned producer and artist.
PrisonGarde, is latest incarnation of electronic music veteran Vaughn Robert Squire (fka. Megasoid, Sixtoo). His new setup is a one-man 808-driven Live P.A performance that is currently tearing up the west coast bass music and club circuits, and well worth checking in the live environment.
Jacques Greene, 20-year old Montreal native, recently debuted on LuckyMe records to roaring reviews for his eclectic taste and touch on techno and house. Already making waves around the globe, we’re excited to see what Jacques brings to this tour

Attendees will also have an exclusive opportunity to enter a remix contest, with submissions hosted on Exclaim.ca, and the winner taking home a $1K gift certificate to Moog Audio.
