Happy Canada Day! (Richie Hawtin vs. Deadmau5)
Eh! Yes, three days before America’s 4th of July celebrations, your friendly neighbor to the north celebrates the enactment of the British North America Act (1867), which created the country of Canada. In addition to inventing the walkie-talkie, the egg carton, the sport of lacrosse, and the instant replay (not to mention snow mobiles and snow blowers), my country has also fostered some of the greatest dance music artists working today. So for you Americans who are not falling down drunk on beer and filling yourselves with poutine, enjoy this mix from minimal techno pioneer Richie Hawtin & big-stage dominator Deadmau5 from last year’s SXSW. Happy Canada Day!
