Introducing pi2pi— an offshoot that focuses on the beautiful wonders of the b2b experience.
First up we have Ura b2b exfoliant. Along with the b2b both artists with interview each other in the pipipi style
Introduce yourself… Hometown? Where do you reside?
Ura- im ura – born in vancouver, currently living in montreal
Exfoliant- Salut Salut – Devon here. I am a photographer slash artist – Regretably not at the same time most of the time. I’ve mostly just been a lustful visitor to the music scene. I play out sometimes (depending on who rarely lets me…) I’ve had a radio show on n10.as for around 3 years. I grew up in the countryside with a cow field as my front lawn. Living in Montreal right now – maybe not for too long but I highly doubt a major shift in any plates anytime soon.
Let’s play a pipipi game– 1 DJ gives the other a situation the other DJ responds back track form.
Exfoliant: if you were lying in a canoe – mist rolling towards you (think SR canoe expeditions)
Ura: do you know the perfect song to listen to when you walk home in the rain?
Exfoliant: The return journey of a road trip right as you pull up back home
Ura: last time you cried?
Exfoliant: Think canned tuna (URA won’t stand for Rio Mare)
Ura: one question you would like to ask God?
Exfoliant: Your birth
Play at the same time!
pipipi: Wow, that was sick.
What do y’all wish to see in the future for the dance community?
Exfoliant- Montreal… I hate to disappoint anybody that has been pushing things here. But there’s been a hard decline of available DIY spaces that can be available and sustained to push interesting artists instead of solely breaking the cost envelope. I’m hoping after all of this there will be some extreme urge to push and find new venues (myself included). Get Montreal running with enough spaces that people won’t necessarily ~need~ to move way.
Link to a club or diy space that needs help during this time.–
Ura- montreal doesn’t have any good clubs or diy spaces at the moment, the only good raves in montreal are the greenhouse parties. shoutout greenhouse crew
Exfoliant- I feel if anybody in Montreal seeing this might be pissed but… there’s not much. There have been groups and people that have truly kept the city alive. Some of these groups and individuals have hosted the best dance experiences for me…
