Two Electro-Heads coming together to provide you with the newest and hottest dance and bass tracks. The RAYVID duo has decided to remain anonymous, yet provides an intriguing backstory. However, this does not depict who the masked people are. One half of RAYVID grew up in an outskirt town named Woodbridge, 30 minutes from the city of Toronto. The masked phenomenon was not born into a musical family which doesn’t give us any clues to their character. Their family was an average working Canadian family like any other. This individual went to elementary school where they really enjoyed music and started exploring different styles of music. Thus how the genre was chosen. Curious at the genre “Electronic”, they scrolled through the charts and fell in love as the music flowed through their body. Making them want to dance and move around. Though this was simply a fantasy of, “How could I make a career in music with no musical background or knowledge?”. A couple of years had gone by, and the music became a legitimate career choice. So they went for it, therefore attending Harris institute. Yet he or she is still unknown. The other half of RAYVID grew up in the suburbs or Scarborough, just north of Toronto. Interestingly enough, they did not grow up in a musical family either. They learned off the sole desire of wanting to be apart of the music. Growing up with a father who pushed Classic Rock onto his kids, it was really all that was introduced. Until one evening, their older sister was in her bedroom while playing upbeat electronic music which they had never heard before. Intrigued, they asked their sister about the genre, what her favourite DJ’s are, and her favourite songs. With this, they entered the cave known as EDM and never came out. Exploring different sub-genres, studying the differences while always trying to find the best tracks of the week. After years of delving into the genre, they decided to further their knowledge of music by also attending Harris Institute. As of now, the two masked machines have geared their focus to bring you a memorable electronic experience like no other.
Anyone who personally knows The Vidos can tell you one thing with utter certainty: they’re weird. They talk almost exclusively in fragments of obscure movies. They write songs about exploding cars, exploding shoes, and Bill Clinton… exploding. They lived on a bus for over 200 days after moving from Vancouver to Toronto without a plan (or money). To some, this is stupidity. To all: this is ENTERTAINMENT. And entertain they do. With the firecracker duo of frontman/bassman Brett Douglas + mononymous guitar-god Swayzelhoff dancing up a storm as dynamo drummer Nolan Nielsen lays down groove after tasty groove, their live show has truly made this act one to watch in the world of up-and-coming Canadian music.
With the aid of producer Danny Craig (Whale and the Wolf, The Classy Chassys, Default), The Vidos harness this undeniable funk n’ roll energy into razor-sharp cuts like “Perfect Stranger” and “Criminals”, drawing comparisons to anything from Rage Against The Machine to Mother Mother to Al Green. The band has so far cracked the top 40 on the Canadian Active Rock chart twice, once in 2016 with “Car Trouble” (off the “8 Min” EP), followed by “Perfect Stranger” in 2017. Their new material, set to release over the course of 2019 + 2020, shows dashes of soul and hip-hop sensibility under layers of fuzzed-out guitars and sharp, sarcastic vocals. Their most recent release, June 2019’s “Ice Cream Dream”, features Rami Jaffee of The Wallflowers + Foo Fighters on organ + synthesizer.
