Tove Lo is prepping the release of her debut LP Queen of the Clouds. The album follows the hit song “Habits (Stay High)” and her latest single “Not On Drugs”.

Charli XCX is practically a pop veteran after only a brief time in the spotlight thanks to her ever changing (but still cohesive) discography that’s gone from the dark electro pop of “You’re the One”, to the Tumblr-esque mashup of sounds featured on her debut LP True Romance, her turn as a hook girl on the inescapable “Fancy”… not to mention writing “I Love It” and her own summer hit “Boom Clap”.

Isaac Viner knows a thing or two about cocktails. As a seasoned veteran of Toronto’s craft cocktail scene, Isaac moved back to his hometown of Ottawa and became the Executive Bar Manager at Fresco’s guest room. Each week you can find Isaac at Fresco’s guestroom slinging his barrel aged Negroni’s and all kinds of other creative drinks to keep you tipsy and talking.
