Analog Dubstep = Vox, Drums, Guitar, Bass, Beat Drops and a Tambourine … and this is how we do it!
It hasn’t even been a year since we released our fan funded Dance it, Dance all record and we’re are really proud to say that we have blown by the 100,000 download mark!
100,000 Downloads is equivalent to having a Platinum Single here in Canada!
Its an amazing feeling to know that a whole bunch of people from all over the world have downloaded Dance it, Dance all to their iPods, computers and mp3 players, not to mention the lucky few who also have it on vinyl.
Dance it, Dance all is also a fan favorite at our live shows. Dubstep or better yet ANALOG dubstep performed with a Drum, Guitar, Bass and a tambourine, seems to really get you guys going! For those of you that have not had the chance to see us play yet, this is what is sounds like when we play it live!
You might remember us posting about a “Requiem for a Broken Man” remix we did for an English Producer called Goodbye Delete a couple months ago. We were pleasantly surprised when we found out that there was an official video done not for the original, but for our remix! Its really well done, has a whole bunch of BEER in it and you all know we love that!
If you like what you hear and see show ‘em some love and go LIKE their facebook page.
If you are following our activity on the web, you probably know that we are now 4 band members on stage. Since claiming first place at the “Battle of Bands” last December as a 4 man group, we are proud to announce that our band now has a bassman and a new guitarist for live performances. Luc Dallaire and Gérald Pau are now official Easton Ellises members!
In order to make this official, we needed a new band portrait so we asked photographer Charles Henri Debeur to help us make it happen. He’s not only a good friend and a reknown photographer, he’s mostly an artist who uses his camera as an instrument to make art! Here’s the new official Easton Ellises portrait.
This shot was taken on Blvd St. Laurent in Montreal, Canada on Feb 13, 2013 – You can check out more images from our photoshoot with Charles Henri Debeur here. CCheers!
Ever heard of Jamendo ? They say they are the world’s largest digital service for free music and have a Creative Commons business model. A perfect fit!
Well, a little more than 2 weeks ago, we finally took the time to upload the “Dance it, Dance all” vinyl record release to their site. Its a pretty long and painful process but, definitely worth the effort! We have moved our way to #1 Most popular Song on their platform!
In the past 15 days, on Jamendo alone Dance it, Dance all has been downloaded over 55,000 times!
For those of you that are just recently following us, the “Dance it, Dance all” Vinyl record exists only because of our amazing fans that made the crowd funding campaign a success last year. We are really proud to share our first no.1 with them! We know who you are.
For those who saw our last couple performances, you probably noticed that we are now 4 guys on stage instead of 2. That’s because the Easton Ellises are now a 4 man band. And God knows how hard it is to find the right people to join a long-time project. Fortunately, we’ve found the right ones. So, to start 2013 on a positive note, I thought it would be the perfect moment to present you the new members.
The first new member to join the band is Luke, our bass man. He often came to see us play live when we first started the band, as he was already a fan of the Easton Ellises, you can imagine that it wasn’t a hard sell to get him on board! For a long time, Simon & I wanted to replace the sequenced bass by a real one for our live shows and the difference on stage is solid with a sexier groove at a fat tone.
The 4th member to join the troops is Gerald, a long-time friend with whom we made some music years ago. Gerald is a very talented guitarist who can do things I can’t do when I sing and play guitar on stage. He does parts I can’t even do even without having to sing!
Our last show at le National confirmed that we had a winning formula…and just like Simon & I, they love music, wine & women!
A photo-shoot is scheduled mid-February for the new official band portrait. Here’s a home made teaser. To be continued…
What a challenge it is to remix one of your favorite bands songs! For those of you that have unfortunately never heard of them, Rinôçérôse is a very popular French band from Montpellier that also mixes rock with dance music. To be honest, they’re one of our biggest influence. One of their songs called “Cubicle” was featured for Apple’s iPod and iTunes music store commercial a few years ago.
They’re getting ready to release their 6th studio album and the first single is called “Angles & Demons“. Have a listen to the original. That’s the song we’ll be remixing.
On va se donner corps et âme pour faire un remix à la hauteur du band.
R-I-N-O-C-E-R-O-S-E in rock!
UPDATE: Here’s the result of that effort:
Všechno nejlepší k narozeninám
Things like this happen with our music. A fan on YouTube called KinkyClerk put together this amazing video for Ersatz – Violet and the Mutants Remix. CCheers to you Kinky Clerk, whoever you are!
Just when we thought about taking it easy for the holidays, a proposition came up that we just couldn’t refuse. The Coca-Cola company is launching a world wide campaign next year and out of the thousands and thousands of artists out there, we were selected to write a song for the campaign! We only have until January 15th to send the song. With the holiday season it won’t be an easy task…
I’ll have to bring my laptop with me to the family parties and hide behind the Christmas tree to work on the beats!

This is a completely useless post I know, but I when something special or funny happens, I just want to write about it.
It’s just that yesterday, when I looked at our Soundcloud dashboard, there was a notice in the “Lastest Activities”. written : Sofia Vergana is now following you.
Then I told myself “OMG! could she be the sexy woman strapped on a diamond choker and a strapless leather bustier in the latest Rodriguez movie Machete Kills ???” Yeah baby it is ! The sublime and gorgeous Columbian actress Sofia Vergara is a fan!
If ever you want us to perform at one of your private parties, please let us know, we’ll do it for FREE ; )
Here’s a little video of us working our way to 1st place at last weeks Battle of the Bands and performing “Dance it, Dance all” Live @ le National last Sunday. We were on fire! Can’t wait to do it again at Club Soda!
“Oh shake it up,
Crank the heat,
Give your best shot,
This room’s at your feet”
Thanks to Martin Langlois for this cool vid!
So last night was Landmark events industry showcase at le National on St-Catherine street. We had the best spot and were scheduled for 8:30pm thanks to our amazing fans who bought tickets for the event. It was the best spot indeed, because the place was packed when we hit the stage.
We delivered a solid set and got the place jumping and dancing. 6 Songs later we were done and left to watch all the other bands till 1:00 before we got the results.
19 bands all had a turn on stage yesterday, 4 of them made it to the finals and ONE BAND finished on top and beat em all!
Thanks to you, we get the best slot!
We just got the news that out of all the bands, we sold the most tickets for tomorrows LandMark Events Industry Showcase at Le National! Some of you that bought tickets to encourage us, live in other continents! Thanks for helping us out. You are the best fans in the world! For those of you that will make it to the show tomorrow, we will be on stage at prime time : 8:00 pm. We’re only doing a 30 minute set so be sure to make it on time!

Another trip out of town last Saturday, and this time the show was at the bar Le Magog in Sherbrooke. A very important gig just before LME’s Showcase competition that’s taking place at Le National this Sunday. Simon, Luc, Gé, even Mat Joly, were part of this road trip. Couldn’t have been a better way to rehearse for Sunday’s event. We played 9 songs and chose the 6 we’ll be performing for the Battle of the bands. If we don’t change anything last minute, the set should look like this:
1. Sex Like Art 2. Dance It, Dance All 3. Endorphin 4. Insomnia 5. She Dreams Of Murder 6. Liquorstore
See you Sunday!
This one is to remind the boys how good & restoring that night was after the show!
