Smol (2017)

Calgary, AB

Smol makes tranquil bass music that’s as punchy as it is patient. Sampling lush melodies and recontextualizing them with thudding beats, Smol’s music feels like an antidote to overstimulation. Still, Smol has a good track for the floor—he recently opened for the mighty Joker and Stööki Sound at the Hifi Club, the same venue he’ll be playing for Sled Island.
