About


Bad Dagger

Disco. Metal. House. These three words form the mission statement adopted by the dance powerhouse experience that is Bad Dagger. Bursting onto the scene in 2012, Bad Dagger began with Cameron Reel (music production, synths and bass guitar) and Eddie Roodvoets (drums, samples, and triggers). This duo stunned and entertained audiences with there unique brand of Disco/Metal/House or Electrosexymetal, as their style has been called. Extremely danceable, this act has a tendency to switch gears without warning. This makes it possible to touch on a wide array of genres in each set. Bad Dagger makes use of this versatility with relentless passion and energy.

In the fall of 2016, Brice Jones (guitar) was added to the lineup. Without knowing how a guitar player would fit in with their style, Cameron and Eddie were immediately floored by the element that Brice brings to the music. Brice’s instincts and artistic taste were spot on right away, adding a crucial ands melodic balance to the band. Although they have similar influences in music, each member has a unique taste and sensibility. This helps add to the evolution of the unique brand of music they have developed.

Check out what’s been happening w/ The New Deal- AGE OF DISCOVERY

February 7th, 2020

Live Electronic Innovators Back with New Drummer, Album, Tour Dates

February 7th 2020 – With over 1400 legendary late nights, sold-out clubs and triumphant festivals under their belts, The New Deal have returned with a passion in 2020 with ‘TND3’ – the third incarnation of the renowned live electronica trio: Jamie Shields (keyboards), Dan Kurtz (bass), and drummer Davide Di Renzo.

Their new album Age of Discovery is the second volume in “The Asylum Sessions” – an album series named after Dan’s studio where the band spent fifteen months jamming and recording with Davide in preparation for TND 3.0. Click HERE to listen to the new album.

“We decided to share this music with the people that we felt would most enjoy it – our fans. The energy and sound on these tracks are raw but we feel that these cuts best represent our creative spirit during the time leading up to and following our first TND3 shows in June, 2019.

Our writing process and the progression of writing new music starts with improvisational jams in the studio. We then work out the melodies and the new songs are then rehearsed, played live, and hand selected for new albums.

Most of these jams were mixed live and in the moment by MSG so there was no turning back for any of us; what we created in the moment is what ended up as the finished product. It’s that spontaneous energy that jumps out from these improvisational experiments and it’s what makes “The Asylum Sessions” series so special to us as artists and musicians.” explains keyboardist Jamie Shields.

The New Deal first began in Toronto in 1999, quickly gaining support from Toronto’s underground club scene as pioneers in electronica, recreating the DJ experience with live, improvised music. Soon the band brought their interpretation of Electro House, Trance, Breakbeat and Drum & Bass to the US where they were embraced by the crowds at NYC’s Wetlands Preserve and cultivated a loyal following in the American jam scene.

After twelve years of touring, The New Deal took a hiatus in 2011; Dan spent much of the next few years touring the world with Electropop band Dragonette. When The New Deal returned to stages in 2014 they brought on board a new drummer in Dragonette’s Joel Stouffer. For three years, Dan, Jamie, and Joel enjoyed another successful round of touring and recording, and in 2017 Joel amicably parted ways to pursue other musical interests.

In 2018, The New Deal welcomed drummer extraordinaire Davide Di Renzo into the fold. After several months of shedding in the studio, the band played their first live shows with Davide in June 2019, and their first new album Phoenix in September 2019 . Now with the release of Age of Discovery, the band continues their long anticipated return to the touring and festival circuit.

“One difference in Volume Two is the inclusion of the TND favourites “Home” and “Deep Sun”, two tracks released on previous TND albums. The recording you hear on “Age Of Discovery” is actually Davide’s first time playing those songs. We listened once or twice to some old versions and then decided to just wade in and see what would happen if we tried to play them. I was astounded by Davide’s approach. He took the songs in directions that I had never dreamed of and when the session was over I walked into the control room, mixed a copy of that jam and added it to the album!” – Jamie Shields

theNEWDEAL is back
Toronto-based live electronic trio returns with
new drummer Davide Di Renzo

With over 1400 legendary late nights, sold-out clubs and triumphant festivals under their belts, theNEWDEAL returns with a passion in 2019 with ‘TND3’ – the third incarnation of the renowned live electronica trio: Jamie Shields (keyboards), Dan Kurtz (bass), and new drummer Davide Di Renzo.

The band’s evolution through three drummers has now brought theNEWDEAL closer to its original direction. “With Davide, it’s a bit like ‘coming back home’, as he was the drummer that inspired our original direction back in 1998 when the three of us played an impromptu gig together in Guelph, Ontario. Each of the band’s drummers has brought something unique to theNEWDEAL, and with Davide we’re reaching back to move forward with the organic-infused improvisation that has long-inspired a big part of theNEWDEAL sound,” explains keyboardist Jamie Shields.

theNEWDEAL first began in Toronto in 1999, quickly gaining support from Toronto’s underground club scene as pioneers in electronica, recreating the DJ experience with live, improvised music. Soon the band brought their interpretation of Electro House, Trance, Breakbeat and Drum & Bass to the US, where they were embraced by the crowds at NYC’s Wetlands Preserve and cultivated a loyal following in the American jam scene.

For three years, Dan, Jamie, and Joel enjoyed another successful round of touring and recording, and in 2017 Joel amicably parted ways to pursue other musical interests.

In 2018, theNEWDEAL welcomed drummer extraordinaire Davide Di Renzo into the fold. After several months of shedding in the studio, the band released the first taste of new music in March 2019 with “Halo Drive”, an epic 16-minute live improvised studio jam – recorded and mixed in the moment without any overdubs. The band plans to release more of these live studio improvisations as 2019 continues – plus a long anticipated return to the touring and festival circuit.

About


Future Joy

Future Joy is an invigorating and refreshing addition to EDM. Debuting their first album, frontman Zach Simms performs on the saxophone, dj’ing with Frederic Park on the drums; Future Joy is a stellar fusion of Electronic Music with a taste of Sax and Soul! Straight out of the Milehigh City, Future Joy covers an array of sub genres in electronic dance music from dubstep to house to glitch hop to vaporwave. “The possibilities are limitless, and that’s something Future Joy proves in their debut self-titled album. A reflection of the Denver electronic scene today, Future Joy is a collaborative piece that pulls from many genres to create a sound that’s recognizable yet fresh. Iconic electronic music drops are met with some of the sexiest saxophone serenades your ears will ever hear. The boys are on a serious mission to get you laid.” (303 Magazine). Future Joy is the party you want to attend.

Even though Future Joy is a brand spanking new band, Simms and Park are no strangers to performance, having shared the stage with George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Melvin Seals (Grateful Dead), Mickey Avalon, Boombox, Champagne Drip, and The Motet.

Through synchronicity Simms and Park met in the Colorado Music Scene and have been best friends ever since, essentially brothers. Working tirelessly to create this tasteful, soulful album, “Future Joy”, is here to hydrate your thirsty ear holes.
