Arthur Oskan And Toronto’s Techno Scene

StudioFeed talks to Arthur Oskan and explores the history of Toronto’s techno scene:

A fixture of Toronto’s techno scene and one of the city’s leading live acts, Arthur Oskan’s deep and lush electronic sound has been reverberating throughout Toronto for over 20 years. It is this dedication to his craft that recently earned him Canada’s highest and most prestigious industry recognition; a Juno nomination for Best Electronic Album of the Year for his record, “A Little More Than Everything” released on Thoughtless Music.

But what does 20-years of making music look and feel like? How do you sustain that commitment to your craft and dedication to the city of Toronto when other electronic hubs like Montreal or Berlin beckon? Oskan provided StudioFeed with unparalleled access into his 20-year journey of making music in Toronto: the changes, the struggles and the long overdue recognition.

  1. Interesting how his story is essentially the same as it was for performing bands in the 60s/70s/80s. Start by playing anywhere you can. That turns into crappy gigs, and this turn into ok gigs, and eventually you start making full time money playing good shows.

  2. We’re a gaggle of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our community. Your web site provided us with valuable info to paintings on. You have done an impressive process and our entire group will probably be grateful to you.
