To celebrate the launch of their new singles-based label, The Confidence Emperors released a new single and video from hip-hop group Grand Analog. Entitled “Let Disco (Muneshine Remix)”, the video and single premiered today on Exclaim! The Jason Cipparrone directed video for the single “Let Disco” by Grand Analog was remixed by acclaimed mix engineer Muneshine, who has collaborated with Pete Rock, Sean Price, DJ Spinna, and more. “Let Disco allows you to dance during heartbreak,” says Grand Analog frontman Odario Williams. “Muneshine’s remix brought hope and sunshine to a track I wrote about breaking up.” You can watch the video here.
Toronto based digital singles, EPs and remixes label The Confidence Emperors officially launched today. With a global reach and a strong, identifiable aesthetic, it’s designed to be a fresh approach to artist development and a platform for music discovery. The content will be presented online in a gallery style through a process of curation and collaboration. The imprint represents change through creation, and will feature tracks and remixes from some of Canada’s greatest talent such as hip-hop mainstays Grand Analog, emerging synth duo Pyramid Tropic, JUNO-award nominee Will Whitwham (The Wilderness of Manitoba) and producer/multi-instrumentalist Matthew Fudge (Grand Analog/Alphacub). The label’s upcoming releases include tracks from Chemical Dreams, Martha and the Muffins, and Ghost Caravan, among others.
“I’ve always believed that great artists should be able to encapsulate everything they do into a three-and-a-half-minute single,” states Graham Stairs, founder of The Confidence Emperors and Popguru Sound & Vision. “The Confidence Emperors is not only going to be a digital singles/EPs/remixes label, but also a discovery platform that curates and channels that excitement into its releases. The artists I work with are prolific and have their own studios. So, now they have an outlet for their creative urges!”
The Confidence Emperors will be hosting a Launch Party during Canadian Music Week at the Monarch Tavern on Friday, May 6th at 9PM. See below for the full lineup and set times. To RSVP, visit the event page here.
