Subhan returns after another 2 weeks , with another jam packed episode for you listeners. This show marks our annual funding drive special ! This year CKCU FM's funding drive goal is $250 000 as we aim to combat provincial legislation that has cut support to platforms and art institutions like ours. Show some love to the place that has given us and so many others a platform by donating at ckcufm.com or call-in @ 613-520-2759 💙
Also on this edition of the show I am joined by one of Ottawa's most in-demand and influential producer/engineer's , also a talented musician in his own right under the moniker GHVSTZ, the homie RIPVCTR !
Victor stopped by and we had a really compelling conversation on a myriad of topics. We start with discuss his long time passion for music, starting from picking up a guitar, to touring with bands, to taking the risk to invest in himself and his passion resulting in the creation of New Alchemy Audio. We also talk about how the GHVSTZ project came to be , and how the passing of his long time friend and collaborator pushed him to go forward with it's release, be sure to pree one of my favourite tracks off P O S T M O R T E M , "Red Pill" featuring CGB & $olist below:
We also discuss the talented producer's opinions on the current climate of music in this social media era we find ourselves all being participants on. He highlights the importance of saying "No" and the value of taking your time and achieving goals organically rather than focusing on what will garner the most attention on social media.
RIPVCTR also touches on how pushing himself and the importance of going outside your comfort zone has resulted in true progression in his pursuits. From there he reveals all the crazy stuff he has dropping the rest of the year from the newest GHVSTZ project, including us premiering "Floss", and the myriad of other collaborative efforts he has hands on with artists in the city. This was one of our fave convos yet so be sure to listen to the full interview to catch all the gems that were dropped !
