Broken treefort is my friend Mark who I met through Max, and lives in toronto. Aka Louis Percival, Aka Onakabazien. Mark also plays in a band with Max (slim twig) called Plastic Factory, other members include Carl Didur, and Anthony (actual water). Be sure to look out for their name. This band has all the exciting best new blood of toronto on their roster.
But I want to talk more about Mark's work as broken treefort:
Mark has successfully blended break beats and other drumming styles that originate from adolescent years (like so many of us growing up listening to hip hop), along with other genres one embarks on discovering later on in adulthood. The result is a very unique voice and sound that does not sound like anything else. He has a vault of recordings that spans over a decade and have not released them. More people need to hear this music. Check out some of his tracks here:
