Grimes – Genesis

The more and more I listen to this song the more I am blown away by how good it is. While Grimes strays from Cascadia’s typical EDM material of trance and progressive, this track is a great representation of the new genre of dance music that is becoming really popular. Born and raised in Vancouver, Grimes is starting to blow up across the board – with articles in Vogue, the New York Times, and pretty much all over the web.

A musical powerhouse, she has released 4 albums in 2 years and in February begins an 8 month tour all across the US, Europe and most likely Australia. There is good reason for this sudden popularity… she is incredibly talented and is definitely an artist worth keeping an eye on in 2012.
