“If it were possible to make her a new word in the Urban Dictionary, Amber Long would be defined as such: Amber Long adj: driven, persistent, dreaming. (1) To do something that would inspire someone. (2) To go big or go home. (3) to revitalize…” – Indie Seen, Echo Weekly Magazine
In a relatively short time, Long’s career smashed into over-drive, including 6 Sonic Boom Awards for CKMS Radio 100.3 FM, 2 nominations at the Toronto Independent Music Awards, and performances that have scaled across North America – as far as New York City, Boston, Chicago and now, this year, Miami. She has four, full length albums under her belt, as well as being an established Beatport/Traxsource/Juno Download artist.
Currently Amber collaborates on a regular basis with International Producers, as well as local Producers from Toronto. She releases her own style of music and is available for vocal and remixing opportunities.
Amber adds DJ to her extensive resume, constantly honing her craft. She plays regularly throughout the Toronto area, showcasing her own productions, as well as those with whom she works.
Driven to weave style into sound, Toronto-based electronic music producers Guyvr and Mason Bach have united as Gridmode to deliver an all out assault on the dancefloor, by exploiting the latest computer music technologies and delivering them with an ear-to-the-ground mentality. Always consistent in their approach yet full of surprises, Gridmode invites their listeners to engage in a co-creative exploration of sound that never strays from an uncompromising dedication to their art.
While deeply rooted and educated in the craft of live music performance, Gridmode has transplanted core elements from studio production directly to the live stage, pushing and perfecting technical boundaries in real-time. This talented duo flawlessly combine the most current selections from the minimal, tech-house and techno genres with grace and highly discriminating taste.
Although audiences unanimously agree on their intuitive musical sense and applaud the almost rocket science behind their rhythms and compositions, Gridmode sources only the purest of dancefloor pursuits which results in an experience which must be witnessed first-hand to fully embrace.
