  • Nature is everywhere you go. Beautiful forever.......

    Producers Shakib Jakir and Eric Shans team up for this Canopy exclusive mix which highlights tracks coming on the Canopy Sounds label over the remainder of 2020.

    Shakib Jakir started his musical journey at a very young age. He grew up learning Indian classical music at the age of 4 playing harmony with his father. For years he played the bass, but his love for the melodic structures of deep house & techno drew him to produce his own crafted electronic creations. He learned production from some of his very close and talented friends, but his unique sound and production style came so naturally that he has since then taken his own path where he often blends beautiful strings, organic drums, and world sounds.

    Eric met Shakib a few years back on Soundcloud of all places when Shakib heard some of Eric's productions. He has been making music for two decades that range from ambient, to synth driven house, and electronic pop, and everywhere in between, while also running his own labels. The two have since built a lasting friendship which has since blossomed into a true production team. They've worked on many things over their time of knowing each other but now they've finally honed on a sound that truly works for both of them.

    Shakib and Eric's mix demonstrates the Canopy motif which is memorable, soul enriching music that stems from the heart's core. 3 of their tracks, "Yuhi"(Sunset), "Empyrean", and "Ardour" from their forthcoming Canopy EP "Ardour" can be heard on this exclusive mix. Their EP is set to be released in September.

  • "Silence spread across the water while songs sang from the inside..."

    Canopy Sounds welcomes our new friend, GastoM.

    GastoM started his life of music at a young age playing percussion within his school bands while growing up in Mendoza, Argentina. He then took to the guitar and piano, taking lessons from his brother. After discovering a passion for the vast world of electronic music in 2012, he embarked on a journey to become a producer at the School of Music of Buenos Aires (E.M.B.A.). Acts like Stimming, DAVI, Mark Alow, Kora, and others are among his biggest influences, which is apparent in his style of production; ebbing between Deep House, Techno and Progressive House. He is always adding in organic instrumentation and percussion, providing a unique and alive sound. Some recent releases have been showcased on labels such as The Purr and Outsider Records. We are happy to host this young and talented gentleman for this week's guest mix.

  • "While waiting for warmer days, relax and take in the present moment..."

    After his collaborative release with NODO on our VA compilation last year, Mule (ARG) returns to Canopy Sounds with a stunning mix featuring some original work alongside some of his recent favorite tunes.

    Mule is an Argentinian producer who thrives on the mellow and subtle flavors of organic house music. Frequenting collaborations with his friend NODO, his sound pallet is one of sultry summer afternoons as well as calm and cool evenings. The music revels in the simplicity of things and the beauty that exists within the smallest aspects of life. His latest productions with NODO have been released on Within Music and Mirrors Label. Stay tuned for his next releases with Loot Recordings later this month featuring a remix with fellow Canopy family member, Viktop. For now, float away with this special hour of breezy melodies.

  • "Lonely days come and go. When you need them most, call on a friend."

    Canopy Sounds returns this with our good friend, trustless.

    Few can rival this Munich based producer and DJ's tender and careful ear for introspective soundscapes that pair with soft and thunderous grooves alike. As one of the founders of the beloved Nie Wieder Schlafen label and music collective, trustless and his friends yearned for something different than the music that was around them early in 2014. While waiting for a David August performance during the wee hours of the morning, Steppi and his crew knew they could not sleep, hence the meaning of NWS (Never Sleep Again). This whimsical story would become the root for what was to become one of the most captivating and inspiring underground deep house collectives around. Since then, the ideas has moved from festival fields, to T-Shirts, Youtube and finally a juggernaut label with releases from artists including trustless himself, Quatri, Modulo, Padre, Sam Goku, Kotu, Jayden Klight, Timo Chinala, Varaz and more.

    The idea of being "trustless" evokes feelings of having your head a bit up in the clouds. It embraces uncertainty but with an excitement for what might be uncovered. The music of the NWS crew aims to create atmospheres where a distinct emotion isn't so clear. In our current global context we are all asked to embrace the unknown, however we embark on this journey together, not alone. We hope you can find some solace in this special selection of tunes from trustless...

  • "High above the mushroom fields sits a humble outpost where dreams of distant tomorrows take shape..."

    We are happy to officially introduce one of our favorite Chicago Canopy residents to our mix series this week, Kevin Watry.

    Kevin has been a deep dreamer for years now. While one of his homes lies out in Black Rock City, Watry has made Chicago his urban dusty playground. After an extended break from DJing for a few years, Kevin has been back in the saddle and played alongside acts such as Robbie Akbal, Christian Voldstad, Rodriguez Jr, Viktop and more. Had it not been for Covid-19, Watry was prepping for a special evening to play alongside the almighty Sabo. Kevin's taste ranges from downtempo world sounds, driving tribal, delicate and dreamy, to whimsical bangers. This special selection from Watry exemplifies the world he creates when behind the decks.

    This week's art contribution comes from our very own Chicago love, Alice Robinson aka Astralfay. Alice's art ranges in style and scope. From sketches and paintings and photographs, and of course her awe inspiring clothing design work - Alice is a true talent and we are honored to have her featured as a collaborator this week.
