Ninetynine & Dominic Pierce: Close To Modern

Ninetynine is a Canadian producer originally from Calgary but now based in Vancouver. He makes music that he describes as Nightmare House/Electro and I agree, he produces dark, heavy and scary breed of electro/house. But don't take it from me, his tracks have been supported, remixed and played out in sets by some of the founders and champions of heavy and scary electro/house like The Proxy, Q.G., Les Petits Pilous, and Mashed Paper Klub. Want some music? Grab some huge tracks from 99 down below and swing by his soundcloud to hear more.

Dominic Pierce is another talented Canadian originally from Calgary and based in Van. & Calgary. Dominic lists his major influences as Cassius, Daft Punk and Basement Jaxx which you can definitely feel through his music. He produces a unique, original and awesome mixture of House and French Touch with a whole lot more. With much support coming from talented French Touchers like The Phantoms Revenge, Dominic clearly got skills.
