Harrison: Mustang feat. Talvi
The highly-touted young T.O. beatmaker delivers another winner with this sensual cut and compelling video.

Harrison - Mustang feat. Talvi (Last Gang): The 22-year-old Toronto-based producer made a splash with his debut full-length album, Checkpoint Titanium, one that garnered rave reviews and a 2017 Juno nomination in the Electronic Album of the Year category.
Subsequent tracks have confirmed his potential as an imaginative beatsmaker, and this new offering, taken from the album Apricity, is no exception.
There's a languid and sensual feel to the cut, augmented by Talvi's ethereal vocals and the dreamy video clip, directed by Jon Riera. This video was supported by the MVP Project, a joint initiative of RBCxMusic and the Prism Prize (administered by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television). At just 2.06, you'll wish the track and clip were a mite longer.
In a label press release, Harrison describes the making of the video as “a breeze, as I’ve worked with Jon before. I’m a little camera shy so it was nice having Talvi there, we were using the second half of Mustang, which is all her singing.”
It has been a big year for Harrison. Following the release of Apricity, he was nominated for two prestigious national awards; a CIMA Award (Canadian Independent Music Association) for the album’s marketing campaign, and 2019 Prism Prize for the video for Your Girl (feat. Ralph). Your Girl was nominated for a 2019 UK MVA under Best Pop Video – newcomer.
Harrison has been busy in the studio working on new material, collaborating with Toronto artists, including production on Sean Leon’s new album and with TOBi on his single, Beige.
