Bio

Vancouver Island duo Pigeon Hole first forged their name in the underground hip hop culture of the mid-2000s. From there, the drive to experiment with new forms of production saw them splinter off from rap onto the fringes of the bass music scene. True to their roots, Pigeon Hole’s sound leans heavily on nostalgic reference to their early hip hop influences. They’ve now established themselves as leaders at the forefront of Canada’s Bass music scene.

Pigeon Hole (Lee Napthine and Colin McCue) got their start as members of west coast hip hop collective Sweatshop Union. Years on the road led into the summer of 2011, where the group toured the bass music festivals, and were exposed to a new array of genres and sounds. The decision was made to cut ties with Sweatshop Union and head back into the studio to redefine themselves, excited by the many forms of electronic music they had been inspired by.

The Chimp Blood LP, on Urbnet Records, was Pigeon Hole's first dip into electronica and played to their strengths as lyricists and performers. Chimp Blood thrashes over a foundation of grimy synths, sampled and chopped over machine gun drum programming, 808s, and massive bass. It’s an epic hybrid of music that will make you feel like you can levitate. The album’s anthemic singles (“Champion” & “Higher State”) brought a refreshing voice to the rap world, and introduced a group in the infant stages of discovering their new sound.

Recently, a series of quality singles and EPs on Sleeveless Records saw Pigeon Hole pick up where they left off with their brand of broken hip hop bass tunes, along with the drum & bass sub-sect. The 2017 sticky-analog single “Headnod” and the G-funk inspired “6 AM” got international playlist support from DJs throughout the summer. Pigeon Hole further fueled momentum by touring North American festivals, highlighted by performances at Shambhala, SXSW and Burning Man’s Camp Questionmark Stage.

Pigeon Hole won’t stop there. As leaders in an emerging bass music landscape, they have secured a position as both pioneers of the past and innovators of a promising future.
