LISTEN | CRi Releases A Mini-EP Titled "Me And My Friends"
CRi quickly made his mark on the Montreal electronic scene by offering a singular sound influenced by house synths, syncopated snares and a futuristic bassline. Self-taught, the artist managed to make a name for himself. We even featured him during his beginnings on our Podcast series, not knowing how big he would get.
With his mini-EP release titled Me And My Friends, producer CRi brings us back to the times of two-sided vinyl format, whith the lead single on the A-side and, on the B-side, a title dear to the artist.
A splendid work which depicts the artist’s encounter with singer Sophia Bel, and ultimately the beginning of a friendship built around cigarette breaks and seemingly neverevending studio sessions. The B-side, Friends In Secrets, opens the door to an alternate, nocturnal universe where we let ourselves be submerged by an uncontrollable and invading melancholy.
Together, these two titles are the echo of a persistent dilemma for this Montreal-born artist; to become locked in the riches of loneliness or to succumb to the constant need to be in contact with others. No matter the answer, this Junos-nominated artist is once again beyond convincing, the “CRi” becomes a euphemism as his vibrant music actually screams aloud.
Me And My Friends, the new two-song EP by Canadian producer CRi is now available on all digital platforms.
