Art Department at Electric Pickle December 31

Although Toronto DJ-producers Jonny White and Kenny Glasgow are established scene veterans, nothing prepared them (or the world) for the tsunami wave of "Without You," their 2010 debut as Art Department. A monstrous bass-driven banger oozing with raw sex and haunting Quaalude-hazed vocals, it dominated international dance floors and DJ charts all year, eventually making it to the very top of Resident Advisor's prestigious Top 50 Tracks of 2010 poll. And now these two are slated to release their first full-length LP on Crosstown Rebels, while Jonny White keeps busy on the side, expanding his No.19 label with contributions from the likes of Jamie Jones, Osunlade, and No Regular Play. Go catch Art Department at the Pickle before the next tsunami sweeps them away.
