Bare Selection announces its first release with Toronto MC and producer, Tre Mission. The instrumental EP, Bare Selection 001, aims to bridge the UK and Toronto music scenes, merging EDM from both regions on this record. Bare Selection is the brainchild of Tre’s longtime collaborator, DJ/engineer/producer Freeza Chin, along with DJ/curator JAYEMKAYEM.
Freeza has almost 10 years experience as a sound engineer—getting his start at Toronto’s historic Phase One working with The Black Eyed Peas, Rich Homie Quan, The Weeknd and Shawn Mendes, among others; he is now the owner/operator of his own studio, Genesis Sound, located in Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood. JAYEMKAYEM has a background in digital marketing, event production and promotion, and took up music full-time three years ago.
“We have different skill sets that compliment each other, it just made sense to launch the label together,” JAYEMKAYEM says, “Freeza will be shaping the sound of the label overall, getting artists on board for releases and doing all the mixing and mastering. And I’ll be managing the other aspects of the label including marketing, branding, events, partnerships and more.”
Bare Selection 001 will release on November 12 on all digital streaming and purchasing platforms. JAYEMKAYEM will be performing at Happy Ending Fridays at Fortune Sound Club on Nov. 23. RSVP HERE!
