Just Browsing: Free stuff on Soundcloud ... Part Four: Adventure Club

Christian Srigley and Leighton James are Adventure Club, a Montreal-based electronic/dubstep production duo clearly intent on making their music as accessible and as widely available as possible by using sites like Soundcloud.
Indeed, Adventure Club’s own Soundcloud page expresses the following philosophy … “sharing is caring. Feel free to download, and share our music if you like it. Pass it on, paying for music is the worst” …

Primarily dubstep in nature, but with a crispy euphoric dancefloor slant, Adventure Club is at its best when recasting the work of other artists, but from all accounts the duo are equally at home producing their own stuff, and several of the freely available files are issued purely under the Adventure Club moniker.

But it is the remix work that appeals most, and highlights of Adventure Club’s relatively prolific output to date include its reworking of fellow Canadian band Metric’s ‘Collect Call’, the slightly bent transformation given to the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s otherwise ordinary ‘Wait’ (clip below), and my own personal fave Adventure Club moment – the heavy stepper bottom end added to Irish folkie James Vincent McMorrow’s ‘We Don’t Eat’ (clip below).

Formed in early 2011, Adventure Club already has something fast approaching 200,000 Facebook followers, so they’re hardly an unknown quantity, or even particularly low profile, and they probably don’t really need the likes of me to help give them additional exposure but in years to come Srigley and James are going to be huge, I’m already quite sure of it … make sure you can say you were there right at the start.
