5 Must See Artists @ NXNE Port Lands

5. Caveboy: Saturday 3 pm, Canal Stage

 Kicking off our list of essential performances at NXNE Port Lands is  Montreal's Caveboy.  They've been in the studio working on the follow up to last year's single 'Superbia'.  We caught their show last summer at Osheaga, and loved it.  Based on that experience, and the possibility of hearing some of that new music they've been working on, we just can't miss Caveboy at NXNE.

 

4. River Tiber: Sunday 6 pm Skyline Stage

This week River Tiber is performing in Spain at the Sonar Festival, and returns home to Toronto to help bring the Port Lands festival to a glorious close on Sunday.  River Tiber is one of the most buzzed about names in music these days, and for good reason.  He's released music with Daniel Caesar, Pusha T, and fellow Port Lands performer Kaytranada.  The album Indigo was released last year, and it's way too good to pass up the chance to hear some of those songs live on a sunny Toronto Sunday.

3. Kaytranada: Saturday 9:30 pm, Skyline Stage

Kaytranada was added to the Port Lands lineup when Tyler the Creator cancelled his performance.  The album 99.9% is still in heavy rotation, and based on his set at Manifesto last summer this is one headline show that cannot be missed.  There's simply no one else who dj's or makes music like Kaytranada, and that unique style and sound is what brings together such a lively, energetic crowd at his shows. 

2. Cold Specks: Friday 6:20 pm, Canal Stage

Last year following Schoolboy Q's headline show at NXNE Port Lands, Cold Specks put on a stunning show at Lee's Palace.  With the new single 'Wild Card' released just today, we're excited to hear the evolution of one of the finest voices in music one year later.  It seems a fitting next step that Cold Specks would taking the stage at the large scale NXNE event.  If 'Wild Card' is the first in a new collection of music, this show could be a chance to hear more...

1. Sleigh Bells: 7:50 pm Skyline Stage

Flashback to 2014 and Sleigh Bells was stealing the show at NXNE with a Wednesday night show at Tattoo, and an appearance at Yonge/Dundas Square the following night.  They were touring in support of the album Bitter Rivals and this time around it's the incredible album Jessica Rabbit.  The duo of Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller have been unstoppable since 2010's Treats was released, and their live show is not to be taken lightly.  This show is an opportunity to see Sleigh Bells live that should not be passed up.

River Tiber ft. Pusha T: 'Illusions'

Red Bull Sound Select has done it again.  They've put River Tiber and Pusha T together in the studio.  If that's not a unique enough collaboration for you, they also had the incredible producers Kaytranada and Doc McKinney on the track as well.  The resulting song is a unique electronic soul masterpiece.  No single artist could cook this up on their own, and the reality about 'Illusions' is that it's a prime example of the inspiring effect that Red Bull's programs have on the creative community.

UPDATE!  Check out 'Gravity' with Kaytranada!

River Tiber: 'Let You Go'

River Tiber is back with a new EP this month.  'When The Time Is Right' is due out September 16th, and the conflicted love song 'Let You Go' is the first single from the EP to surface.  The Toronto artist only wants you when he's let you go, and the smooth vocals over the slightly broken feeling beat make for a very unique listening experience.  We're very excited to hear the full EP when it's released.
