Known for her optimism, husky vocals and Eurovision rhythmic sensibility, singer/producer Pascale Project is one of Montreal's most unique rising artists.
Pascale Project is Pascale Mercier’s solo project. Based in Montreal, she’s been active in the musical scene since 2008 and has released a few albums/EPs and played many shows across North America and Europe. You can often see her dj at local clubs in Montreal or listen to her radio show on N10.AS. Her music could be described as a mix of pop/house/lounge. The vocals are powerful and the lyrics totally sincere and full of emotions, through that she’s trying to define the concept of partying and what it means to be in love. Originally a drummer, Pascale tries to incorporate any kinds of sounds and rhythms in her music, everything she listens to is important and inspiring for her.

Bowly (also known as OJBP, DÐD, MTSP) is Olivier’s outlet for his hypnotic soul music made on machines. His love for music and sounds of almost every kind has always led him to track down the roots of whichever genre or style his exploration lead him to, study them and reinterpret them.His DJ sets are following the same ethic; trying to follow every possible path from the origin to the present of the music he plays. They are journey through times and places.
As a producer, that led him to release on labels like Berkane Sol (UK), Fur Trades (CAN), Parages Music (FR/GER), True Romance (GER), Boogie Café (UK) and Lazy Days (CAN). As a DJ it offered him the opportunity to share the stage with the likes of Anthony ‘Shake’ Shakir, DJ Qu, Fred P, D’Marc Cantu, and many more in both his adopted home country (Quebec) and his birthplace (Europe).

She studied in graphic design at Boulle and Olivier de Serres schools in Paris and has since settled in Montreal, where her practice has developed to include installation and video performance.
