Anomalie is the live electronic project of Nicolas Dupuis, a classically trained and highly versatile keyboardist and producer based in Montreal, QC.
After the release of his style defining project Metropole in June 2017, Anomalie will release the highly anticipated follow-up, Metropole Part II, in May 2018, completing the EP series inspired by his hometown of Montreal. Each song on both EPs alludes to a specific location in Montreal that’s meaningful to Nico and the city’s budding music scene.
While Anomalie is an independent artist, his music has grown to international recognition and has set the stage to tour internationally with ‘Anomalie Live,’ his 4-piece band bringing his productions to life on stage with energy-driven arrangements and original interpretations of his produced music.
His independent success is a result of both acclaim from international music blogs and the reach of his self-made viral videos showcasing Metropole’s music and his own keyboard skills. The videos have reached close to 6M views and earned praise and attention from notable musicians such as Charlie Puth, Austin Mahone, Thundercat, Electro Deluxe, Lido, Big Wild, Big Gigantic, and more.
For Dupuis, music has been in his blood since an early age, leading to more than 17 years of experience studying classical and jazz piano performance. This led him to become the first person to be awarded the Yannick Nézet-Séguin (Philadelphia Orchestra, Orchestre Métropolitain, Rotterdams Philharmonisch) excellence grant in 2012. Anomalie also has been a guest instructor at Berklee School of Music in Boston and the Nexus Institute.

EDMsauce – “Anomalie is bringing something brilliantly new to the table in the world of electronic music…He incorporates sounds of soul and jazz seamlessly into captivating and pensive arrangements of percussion. The flow of his work are truly second to none, and his style is refined with each additional release.”
Indie Shuffle – “Anomalie ushers in that ‘New Space’ to lend pomp and circumstance to the new times.”
ThisSongIsSick – “There’s something about the Montreal-based artist’s music that hits you just right…His lush sound design and ear for melody is the perfect match for his insane piano skills, making for a one-of-a-kind sound that we can’t get enough of…If Mozart was a producer, he would be Anomalie.”
YourEDM – “Anomalie effortlessly blends elements of trap, hip hop, funk, jazz and classical music to create gorgeous works of art.”

Arbutus started as a personal project, born out of the warehouse art space “Lab Synthese” I co-founded in Montreal in 2007. While living there, I’d record my friends – the same people who were also playing the parties we hosted. Work was obsessive and demanding but, with the help of our friends, Arbutus grew beyond those walls.
As a label and management company we continue to work with many of the same artists with whom we shared our genesis. This is because we believe in the artists that we sign, and are committed to working on their careers long term. This commitment is unwavering, regardless of an artist’s current popularity, wherever they may be in their path of development.
We understand that, while the release of records is a creative and collaborative process, the art is that of the artist’s and we will always work in service of that – ensuring that the artist’s vision and desires are communicated to the fullest extent possible.
We treat those that we work with as family. We believe that all people should be treated equally and that everyone should have access to the experience of good music, whether it’s in the form of creation or appreciation.
We remember that definitions are fluid, as we work with a wide spectrum of artists across many genres, allowing space to innovate and continually recalibrate across a variety of projects. We are also involved with n10.as online radio and the Sounds Of Beaubien Ouest SOBO imprint, both collaborative projects.
