Don't Postpone Joy
"The Montreal based duo Egg. Julien Roy is known for his work behind the renown artistic collective Artificiel and has releases on the Oral and PeP labels. Until recently known more as a percussionist, Guillaume Coutu-Dumont's experiences as a session musician have taken him from the International Jazz Festival of Montreal to the jazz festival of St-Louis (Senegal) and the recording of 3 albums. Together as Egg, they have successfully set themselves at the intersection of multiple influences -- guided by a distinct experimental interest, Egg craft a blend of acoustic instrumentation, tinged with the elements of dub and micro-house, which result in an insatiable amalgamation of infectious body-music. Over a year in the making, their debut full-length, Don't Postpone Joy presents a softly subversive musical universe that is both playful and carefully calibrated to open itself upon repeated listens. Egg have truly defined a signature of their own that compliments the fellow artists in their community, but justly remarks them as a force to be reckoned with in the global electronic scene."
