Bump In The Hump Sneak Peek: Somna - My Shelter (ft. Matthew Steeper)

While it seems the majority of electronic music coming out of Canada is darker, deeper and more bass oriented there's also some strong trance tracks from the likes of Soundprank, Yang and Somna. The latter, Benjamin Leung, has become a staple on Bump In The Hump, usually used to lead off each episode with his epic, joyous soundscapes. His latest of that variety, "My Shelter" a collab with vocalist Matthew Steeper, will once again launch the hour of new Canadian electronic music. In fact the second track in tonight's episode of Bump In The Hump, while not directly from Somna, is indeed inspired by the man himself. Because I follow him on twitter I received a DM offering a free download of fellow AVA artist Memory Loss and her track "Maybe Tomorrow." Of course I couldn't turn down that offer and proceeded to find out that Memory Loss is also Canadian. I don't know what it is about Vancouver that inspires so much great trance music, but I'm glad it's a thing.

Joining Somna and Memory Loss tonight, there's another new Dom Dias bootleg, a stunner from Vincent, some hard and heavy stuff from Black Tiger Sex Machine and Exclusion, and an aptly timed remix from Jacques Greene who is set to play Velvet Underground this Saturday (details here). Finally, since Friday is a holiday there will be no episode of My Mixtape, however it'll return next week. Catch tonight's episode of Bump In The Hump live on Radio Humber from 6-7 PM EDT, here.
