Lunice (Lunice Fermin Pierre II) is a Montreal based trap producer who gained fame from taking part in the Montreal Bass scene in 2007-2008. Lunice makes up half of the production duo TNGHT, who has played many big festivals this past year. Although his music is similar to TNGHT’s, Lunice extends into many genres, from his remix of Hall & Oates’ “Out of Touch” to his appearance in the music video for Azealia Banks’ “212.” However, his main focus is trap music, in which he achieves his “versatile, energetic and positive” (LuckyMe Records) beats through reinvention of traditional music sounds with a heavy bass.

P. Morris, formerly Morri$, will soon release his first mixtape, Debut, on February 25. Moving from Kansas to LA, P. Morris is also a producer who spans several genres. In contrast to Lunice, P. Morris tends to remix pop songs and makes them appear mysterious and atmospheric with post dubstep beats. Recently, he has worked to produce Kelela’s debut mixtape last year, Cut4Me, and has remixed Katy B’s “Crying for No Reason” and even Justin Bieber’s “Hold Tight.” Listen to P. Morris’ SoundCloud here.
Sinjin Hawke also came out of the Montreal Bass scene but now resides in Barcelona. RBMA Radio describes his music as having an “innate grasp of sensual alien jams, combining all the familiar elements of half-steppin footwork, neon r&b, and instrumental rap.” Sinjin Hawke creates big sounds and is currently working on a video-only series with other various other producers called Fractal Fantasy.
