The underlying theme of TIMEKODE X Volume 2: Montreal is ongoing police violence against people of colour, specifically the death of Abdirah-man Abdi at the hands of two Ottawa officers this past July. Memetic is also working to encourage more artists in the DJ community everywhere to speak out on the issue.
Following the international buzz of the Ottawa-focussed Volume 1, the next edition TIMEKODE's regional remix trilogy focusses on two great bands from Montreal. Freak Motif and Dark Maat'r are remixed by TK's Memetic and special MTL guest remixer, Scott C of the legendary Montreal party institution The Goods. Both songs take the listener on an unexpected journey, as they focus on the subject of state sanctioned violence by police in different ways respectively; making for a timely and thoughtful release in these troubled times. Included are alternate takes of both songs, offering four tracks with four funky perspectives on this social ill.
