Premiere: Listen to Honeydripper’s “Dat Love” From Night Vision Music’s 5 Year Compilation

Edmonton-based record label and events group Night Vision Music is celebrating their five year anniversary with a collection of five new tracks from its most beloved in-house producers.

The collective nature of their approach to writing music, throwing events, and running a studio has made them stand-outs in their native Canada, and their music has reached far outside their borders. Night Vision – 5 Years features work by Nick Garcia, Dunmore Park, Adam Johan & Trevor Oslo, David Luca & Dailey, and Honeydripper, with each contributing a different flavour to the EP. The compilation seamlessly weaves together house, funk, soul, and a few surprises for an incomparably groovy collection.

“Over the last five years, we’ve thrown nearly 100 events, released 20 EPs (this is our 20th release), built our own studio, and shared countless amazing moments together. We’ve grown as people and as a family, and this collection of tunes represents the diversity of our sound and our growth as artists over the years. Night Vision is a communal effort of 13 contributors and we’re supported by an amazing community around the world that makes everything we do possible. We are so thankful for the opportunities and adventures we’ve had and we can’t wait to continue the journey in 2018 and beyond.” – Night Vision Music
