2010 Records had plans for several live shows this year. Those plans have changed in the wake of the pandemic, so 2010 is hopping on the livestream bandwagon. Reality Reflections was conceptualized to showcase some of Canada’s coolest and most unique DIY, electronic-based bedroom producers in one virtual concert series. The first edition will feature The Golden Age of Wrestling, Blue Odeur, Daffodil, Charlie D and a DJ set afterparty from Liam Hill all from their very own homes.
This livestream event, hosted by 2010 Records founder Charlie Darragh, is something he’d had in mind prior to the pandemic because the convenience and limitless reach of the internet is inarguable. An online show eliminates the fees of booking venues and artists can perform from their homes in Montreal, Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary—anywhere with wi-fi, really. Audio quality is another advantage. Bedroom producers make music on their computers, in their homes with synths and VST instruments; because the audio will be routed through their computers, the sound of the performance will be practically on par with the final master.
Of course, nothing is as interactive and immersive as a real-life live show. But as technology improves, the bedroom performance will become more and more advanced, and 2010 Records wants to start now.
This is the first of many. As 2010 Records’ roster grows and more and more Canadian artists step out onto the scene they plan to keep hosting these events to better showcase these emerging musicians.
Reality Reflections goes live 7PM PST May 15th on 2010 Records YouTube channel. RSVP here
