Smileswithteeth is the dream pop project of Los Angeles born-and-bred, Montreal-based musician Gabriel Gutierrez. Blending propulsive drums and ethereal textures, he makes genuinely happy music that doesn’t pander or pretend.

For the month of May, he’ll be hosting the Montreal Sessions alongside vocalist Lillian King over at CKUT, bringing you live performances, exclusive premieres from his forthcoming remix EP, and wholesome good times. Tuesdays 3 - 5pm

Oonga hosts If You Got Ears for June 2016

Eli Levinson aka Oonga is a producer/DJ Montreal who creates house/techno dubstep and tropical music. He has worked with Vox Sambou, Alquimia Verbal and AraLune and with the Mundial Festival. He will be exploring different strains of music from around the world. As a producer who has traveled far in search of interesting music to engage with, and through his work at Mundial Montreal, Oonga has been exposed to a huge variety of really weird music, that he wants to share with CKUT’s open-minded listeners. Expect an adventure deep into the esoteric funkalicious heartbeats of the world - Every Wed in June noon - 2pm.

Suoni Per Il Popolo hosts the Montreal Sessions June 2016

Suoni Per Il Popolo Montreal’s Festival of liberated music takes over Montreal Sessions for the Month of June. Expect an aural programme guide to all the festival has to offer. As the programme states “the musicians and artists we are presenting this year test boundaries, question the status quo, deliver alternate vision of reality and send us to new and bold understands and celebrations of the sublime in the world around us.” The Suoni Sessions will feature artists performing at the festival and give us the breakdown of workshops, exhibitions and delights of Suoni. Tune in every Tuesday 3p - 5pm or catch it on the archives
