Release after release, we’ve had the pleasure of reveling in the incredibly flavorful sounds of Canada’s emerging producer, Flavours. Harboring a sound that is hard to formulate into a verbal description, Flavours’s musical style brings a whole new listening experience to electronic music consumers. In his latest musical creation, Flavours tackles Adina Howard’s ‘Freak Like Me’ and flips it into a galvanizing mid-tempo groove, vibrating eardrums with bouncy percussion, seductive vocal clips, atmospheric sounds, and an overflowing dose of funk-laden passages. As always, Flavours has tossed up this release for free, and if it leaves you craving more, be sure to snag up his ‘Juice EP‘ if you missed it.

Can’t swing every day of SnowBall this year? No worries. Single day tickets have been released in conjunction with the recent announcement of the daily set times. General admission passes are starting at $50 but will go up in price in one week, on the 28th of February.

Earlier in the month they were kind enough to sit down with us to discuss a host of topics ranging from their recent collaborations and age restrictions at shows, to their thoughts on instruments’ role in the future of electronic music and Star Wars that they live through vicariously.
