The Montreal artist and NAFF label cofounder moves through some of the most forward-thinking sounds in electronic music.
Francis Latreille, AKA Priori, keeps busy. Aside from running NAFF, one of the most exciting labels right now, he has released on Greek label Echovolt, Canada’s ASL Singles Club and Pacific Rhythm; collaborated with fellow Canadian artists like Project Pablo, RAMZi, Ex-Terrestrial and Gene Tellem; and is working on his debut album. His work reflects his interest in science fiction and his critical outlook on reckless technological progress. This style of sonic inspiration is reflected in his Choice Mix — an hour of music featuring a wide array of electronic sounds, from legends like Haruomi Hosono, local heroes like Ciel and frequent collaborator Ex-Terrestrial.
