This show was 6th in the global house chart.
As anyone who's ever caught Francesca Lombardo in live performance knows, the music that she and her comrades play can be beautifully transcendent: Gentle, loping rhythms anchor sighing synths and soothing strings, with Lombardo's near-angelic vocals adding yet more depth to the proceedings as she leads the way from behind her laptop. Her recorded work, largely released on the Crosstown Rebels label, is cut from the same cloth—and her DJ sets, though perhaps a bit more jacking, exhibit the same sort of dreamy, low-key airiness. And lucky for us—at least those of us within striking distance of Montreal's Parc Jean Drapeau—we'll have the opportunity to do just that on September 27, when Lombardo plays the long-running Piknic Electronic affair. Add it all up, and it looks like 2015 is her year to shine.
