Hi out there. There will be a series of posts coming up on Montreal based artists, sounds like there are lots of good things happening up there. Let’s start with this guy, Sinjin Hawke and his bootleg of a Brandy tune.


DD Hello Sinjin, really feelin’ your laidback, sexy grooves. How are you today?

SH Thanks, doing good. Yourself?

DD Staying motivated. How you like Montreal? What’s the electronic community like?

SH Montreal is a city that always has something new and interesting going on, and has so many small niches to explore. This past year we’ve really seen the electronic community come to fruition: all the producers and DJ’s are coming together to collaborate, and share sounds. I’ve never seen anything like it and I’m so grateful to be a part of it.

DD wowwww I must visit. If you could make an environment with your music, what would it look like?

SH I’d like to able to portray a concise picture of my musical environment but to be honest, it changes every day. For instance, one day I might feel like making a sparkley underwater sounding song while another day I might feel like making a hood anthem. It all depends on what mood I am in and what I’ve been listening to at the time.

DD What mood are you in right now?

SH I feel like vogueing.

DD Haha cover that mouth! What’s been the best show you’ve played so far?

SH They’ve all been so great in so many different ways…I wouldn’t be able to pick a favorite. That said, I do remember having a blast with DJ Rashad about a month ago (vimeo ‘lukewarmgirls’ for footage) That guy is so inspiring to be around, and we ended up spending the week together messing about.

DD For the rest of 2011, what do you have planned for Sinjin Hawke?

SH Quitting my job and moving to Barcelona in June, gonna lock myself in a room for a year and see what I come up with.

DD Damnnnn, Barcelona! I hope you reach some new depths out there with your music. Any last words for the readers?





Go forth and be odd,
