Hailing from avant-electronic scenes in Nanaimo, B.C. and Calgary, Dan Solo and Evangelos Typist have a way with creating dark-edged dance music unafraid of levity among the experimentation – they’ve opened for Blondes and held their own at multidisciplinary artist festivals and the Sled Island music fest, alike. Sanctum’s single, Teeth, Tongue, Lips comes courtesy of Calgary label Close to Modern, while their latest EP of polished soundcraft, Sanctums MM001, ranks among the first results of label Modern Math Recordings, co-created by Solo with Calgary’s Sergio Levels and Matt Hali. The duo’s live set weaves melodic techno and house into an expansive, cathartic, never-boring performance.
