Y’all know how much I love Jedi Electro. Ever since my discovery of them since the MJF, I have vowed to go see every single one of their shows in MTL, and I have. EVERY MONTH, they usually play at le S.A.T. which is close to the corner of Rene-Levesque and St. Laurent. All three shows were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Though they do recycle some of the same beats, every time it’s a different product. Their music is completely improvised, and usually every show, there is a guest player/singer and the crowd always ends up being a 6th member with our chorus like wailing. Sparklers are handed out. Superman and various other blow up objects are thrown. It’s the best deal out there for 2.5 hours of SOLID music for only $10. I said this in July and I will say it again, JEDI ELECTRO IS THE BEST GROUP RIGHT NOW IN MTL! I feel like they’re like mobile versions of Kraftwerk. Creating, innovating, and Godfathers in their own right.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

EVERY single show, I bring my camera, hoping to film a part of the show to share with you guys so you know what I mean, and hopefully the word will spread, but I never end up filming anything. i can’t seem to hold still at all to film one minute’s worth. And seeing their videos does NO JUSTICE to their live act. They truly are meant to be see live…their sound and their Force will never be able to translate on record as good as they do live. But I did find a few videos fo them…keep in mind that they are 3485890346x better live than seen in these videos! You can also check out Jedi Electro’s Vimeo!

Enjoy the videos and stay tuned for my NYE and NYD mixtapes as well as my year end lists!

Y’all all know how much I love Beast…right? I saw them way way way back when I used to live in Edmonton at the tiniest venue that is the Pawn Shop. In the review that I gave directly after the show, I said that it was one of the best shows I’ve seen ever. And you know what, after tonight, I guess I’ll have to take that back because shiiiiiiiiiiet tonight had NOTHING on the Pawn Shop show. After the jump for videos, music, and petit recap!

If you’re wondering where the past three days went in coverage, well, I took a break from the Jazz fest. It was inevitable. Plus, the past three days I only had a few shows and each of them started at 2200 and I simply didn’t feel like cycling all the way there just for one show.

What did I do in the three days?

I made myself Vietnamese salad rolls that I’ve been craving for the past few weeks.
I caught up on my Harry Potter reading.
I, along with one of my flatmates, drank a lot of vodka leftover from a camping trip.
I watched more Big Bang Theory.
And of course, I had dance parties, all the time.

Anyways, I returned to the Jazz fest tonight, and went there for JUST ONE SHOW. Because I knew it was going to be epic. More epic than going to 80s UK electronic legends, The Orb. Yes, I passed up the Orb. For who you might ask?

JEDI ELECTRO.

What seduced me to do such a thing?

Jean-Phi Goncalves. (of course, every musician and singer that participated tonight was amazing, but Goncalves was the trigger)

I won’t do a full review now because I’m still soaking it all in.

What I can tell you, is that this is EASILY in the top ten of the best shows I’ve seen this year. Trust me guys, this is saying a lot, considering I spend all my money on concerts, music, traveling, and traveling for music.

I am so happy.

Edit: I have recapped the show. It’s short and sweet! After the jump!

Beast is a group out of Montreal. You may recognize the members as one is the beautiful and textured voice of Beatrice Bonifassi and the other consists of the infectious beat maker Jean-Phi Goncalves. Separately, both have been involved in many past projects including Lauryn Hill, Jean-Pierre Ferland, Ariane Moffat, Triplets of Belleville, DJ Champion and the popular Pierre Lapointe. Together they are Betty and Jean-Phi. Together they form the musical transcendence that is Beast.

I stumbled across them serendipitously when a google search of mine went wrong. The heading was BEAST: Montreal (check!), experimental (check!), trip-hop (check check check!). Click. And then I went on a crazy dancing rampage and pursued the purchase of their self-titled album which was released late last year. It’s been spinning ever since and it is the most eclectic fusion of trip hop spoken word hip hop on experimental rock. “Ashtray” is probably the sickest trip hop song I’ve heard in a good long while. When I found out they had a stop here on their brief tour I FREAKEEED. And guess what? Their show is tonight! I’m soooo excited. I love seeing bands at their purest form–before they “make it big” which undoubtedly, Beast will.

So, I leave you with three amazing songs off of Beast which you can purchase here. I will return later and write a review of the show. It might not make sense. I will be dazed by my euphoria and my eyes will be hazed from the bass. HAZED FROM THE BASS.

EDIT: I got back from the show a while ago. My ears are still ringing, my body and mind are still adapting back to their original form, before being utterly changed and penetrated by the beats of Beast. I have a feeling this might take a while. What a toll that has been taken. I am indeed hazed from the bass.  Holy fuck.

Live show aftermath…apres le jump!
