Over the holidays, we've been fortunate enough to explore areas of Quebec, which we normally wouldn't venture, and it's been a great experience thus far. There is an small town on the south shore just east of Montréal called Boucherville, which has an impressive number of older victorian'esque style houses and small streets. There is a coffee shop/bistro/boutique in a small square called Saint Laurent Café Boutique which houses a small, cozy yet very spacious space with high ceilings and a wood burning fire place. I left the house with a dead camera battery which wasn't the best but managed to fire of some shots before it died.
It's always a blast hanging with Rashid St. James, and this occasion was no different. Nightmare In The Afterhour is a new project Rashid's been working on and soon to release. We had a meeting months ago at SoHo regarding the album and the direction he wanted to take the album aesthetically and how he envisioned the visuals and we came to a common ground. We "snuck" into an abandoned factory in the west end of Toronto and was blown away by the crazy amount of space we had available to us with 6 or 7 floors of emptiness, each with it's own look and feel. We wanted to try a bunch of different looks while we were there, some worked and some didn't but overall everything went pretty damn good. You can check out some of Rashid's music below.
