Over the past weekend the homies from the Soulection crew were in town. As per usual, I always find myself tagging along with them and as always it's a blast. I ended up getting a text from my dude Tim North and said to meet me at the Delta Chelsea hotel downtown. I arrived with just Tim in the restaurant working on the graphics for his new single Vapours which I shot the artwork for, that will be dropping very soon. We got a text saying to head upstairs to a hotel room and when we arrive we're met by one of Soulection's executives Julio Galvez a.k.a The Whooligan and Montreal native Da-P. I was asked if I wanted to photograph Whooligan's opening act for Little Dragon at the Danforth Music Hall and obviously I said yes. We ended up at the venue later and with an all access pass, I stumbled all around the main stage and the backstage green rooms. Yukimi from Little Dragon was super cute and the rest of the band were very nice. A little later on in the night Australian super producer and photographer Ta-Ku came through and had a great conversation with him. Here are some photos from the day from start to finish.
I had the opportunity to spend a bit of time over the weekend with some members of the world wide beat movement Soulection. They made a stop in Toronto on their North American tour and made a massive impression on the fans that came to support over the weekend. The show they put on at Studio Bar on Dundas St W, was hot, sweaty and full of impressive sets from artists CRSB, Jay Prince, Joe Kay, IAMNOBODI, and ESTA. The next evening, was full of amazing music and chill vibes curated by Joe Kay during his Soulection Radio Podcast #209, hosted by Tim North & Soho House Toronto.
