Performing and creating music under the title ‘Sievi’, Zach Howie, is an electronic musician from Calgary AB, Canada who creates downtempo and electronica with a natural organic and human feel. With his first music release as a solo musician, the debut EP titled ‘Rebirth’, released on Jan 20th of 2018. An integral part of Sievi’s sound is the use of organic samples that are meticulously recorded from all over Canada’s boundless and captivating environments which are repurposed into percussive and melodic sounds that can be heard through out ‘Rebirth’. Sievi is a blend of the digitized modern world and the natural living environment that surrounds it. All instruments, recordings and mixing on ‘Rebirth’ with the exception to the acoustic drums (Performed by Joel Jeschke) were performed and done by Sievi (Zach Howie).
Some artist Sievi sounds similar to are: Tycho, Battles, Bonobo, Sigur Ros and Bjork.
Selci (sell-see) is the diversely talented Canadian ambient-pop musician. She was born in Winnipeg and currently resides in Calgary. She is a true artist, skilled and passionate towards various mediums including music, dance and writing. Her grasp on experimenting with sound and aesthetics is astute and innovative. She curates her pastel and surreal infused music videos that pair impossibly well with her sound. Selci is a classically trained musician having studied opera, electronica and contemporary music. She has a hauntingly powerful voice that completely transports listeners into her tapestry of sound.
Hailing from BC’s sunny interior, this shining gem of the Okanagan has been bringing the beats to the people since before she was old enough to drive. As the boss lady behind the wheel of Geminate Productions, she’s taken many a raver on many a musical journey throughout the years. Those who have attended Bushwacked Music Festival or any of her other carefully curated events will remember her for epic sunrise sets that never fail to serve up that organic bassy goodness with her signature gangster touch.
These days you can find her just east of the Rockies, sharing decks and throwing parties with noted Calgary bass crew Sub Chakra. She’s holding down a residency and curating nights with New Wave at The Hifi Club and is also a co-host of The Mix Up every Friday night on CJSW 90.9FM. When she’s not behind the decks, she spends her time swapping party planning tips and lending a hand to some of the best curators of Western Canada’s deep soundscape culture.
