Priori & Jason VoltaireCA/QC
Forging cosmic, frenetic techno and IDM creations out of the remains of the past, Priori's productions are euphoric, layered, and organic all at once, Francis Latreille crafts unique dance music that pierces the veil of musical reality and opens up open up new spaces.
Raised in Longueuil, Quebec, Latreille stumbled into techno through an accidental Kazaa download, which led to an obsession with dance music and the creation of the Francis Oak moniker. Following a residency at Montréal’s Le Bleury Bar à Vinyle, and a friendship with Patrick Holland that birthed 2016’s warmly nostalgic Jump Source project, Latreille decided to form the NAFF label alongside fellow Montréal producer Adam Feingold. 2020 sees the birth of a new sub-label on NAFF, entitled Garmo, full of trippy, propulsive techno that showcases Latreille's knack for textural sounds and proficiency for uniquely hypnotic sound.
