Vernon recently decided to venture into and promote other projects he is involved in. In early 2013 he joined up with Brian Moen, and Phil Cook to create, or rather to bring back, The Shouting Matches. In 2008, the Shouting Matches released their debut album, Mouthoil which was recently released again due to the bands newfound fame. Now they have regrouped to bring you their latest album, Grownass Man. For those who don’t know about The Shouting Matches, they have a different sound compared to what you are used to from Vernon, and Bon Iver. With strong electric guitar strumming, and Vernon’s dynamic voice, the band is more known for their blues vibe. Vernon’s wide vocal range is utilized to bring out a new, more powerful sound, and is a big must listen for all Bon Iver fans wanting more songs during their hiatus.
Enjoy listening to mesmerizing trance, bass-kicking dubstep, and eargasmic D&B? How about mixing all of those together, dropping a few extra instruments in the mix, and topping the cauldron off with a female vocalist? If you like that description, good on you; and if it doesn’t seem to catch your fancy, it’s about to.
DJ Kevin Thorpe aka Kevin Energy, who is a recipient of UK’s “Best Hard Dance DJ”, owns a record company that has released over 500 EPs, and guitarist/pianist Nick Sanett, who has played in several bands and currently is working on a solo project called “Nick 235,” have struck gold with their unique electronic project DeckaJam. Riding along the veins of popular EDM artists such as Nero, Chase & Status, and The Prodigy, this duo has the sound that can potentially take the electronic music industry by storm.
Taken from their biography on Onesheet, “DeckaJam encompasses all forms of dance music both mainstream and underground. The band aims to explore all forms of party music as part of their journey, so you can expect to hear a wide range of sounds with one thing in common – an intent to rock crowds at live parties!” And the balance is perfect – dubstep and drum & bass hits you at all the right times, while the transitions to softer, smoother, and more melodic phrases are spot on.
The duo has over sixteen years of experience in the music world, slowly earning their place in multiple genres and industries. Teamed up with other musicians such as Rhona, Jones 2.0, and Laura Bayston, DeckaJam has already spit out several sick tunes, and more is sure to follow.
DeckaJam have recently teamed up with Infectious Magazine in an effort to, much deservedly, become more well-known on a global scale.

Indie synth-pop outfit, Fitness Club Fiasco, have had a bit of a disjointed history. The band formed in Bristol, England, with Mike Harloff (vocals, guitar, synths) teaming up with Jess Underdown (vocals). They released two tracks through Something in Construction Records titled Forest City and Dialogue Dreamer, and both received coverage from NME and regular spins on BBC radio.
To continue on their journey, the expats have now returned to Canada and added new members Matt Henderson of Old English, local singer-songwriter Jess Janz, and drummer Cam Guthrie. With the new setting and additional members the band has now acquired a new sound. Holding onto their dancey rhythms, infectious pop melodies, clever, thoughtful lyrics, and a heavy helping of synths they have now grown and evolved into something more mature, more emotional, and more organic.
No song showcases this progression and rebirth better than their new single Goldmine. Self described as a brooding, slow-burning synth-pop number that builds deliberately, note-by-note, from its haunting, minimalist opening to its explosive end. Goldmine, the first single off of their upcoming full length, is available to stream below and can be downloaded for free on their Bandcamp.
You can also watch the music video for Dead Walkie which was directed by Christopher Mills (Interpol, Modest Mouse, Rush). The video was shot on location in Lyon, France. For more information check out DAVIDS‘ Facebook, Twitter and website.
