Bear Mountain

Hailing from Vancouver BC, Bear Mountain's music is both rhythmic and soulful. The band self recorded, produced, and mixed their debut album, XO, which was released by Last Gang Records in 2013. In recent news, they'll be performing at Adelaide Hall in Toronto on December 10th, 2015. Get your tickets here, and check out some photos below of them performing live – photographed by Alex Viau, co-founder of Daily News Project.


Conversion of an Old School Building to a New Apartment

Ons Dorp is a school building that got converted into different apartments. This particular one was designed for a family of five. The teacher’s lounge got remodelled into the bedrooms and the classroom into the living space. Due to its high ceilings, it was possible to create maisonettes, which lead for the whole family to be together, but still remain with a bit of privacy. It meant that in the living area, the Standard Studio could combine all five elements; kitchen, living room, dining room, play area for the children and work space into one. Storage is of essence when designing for a family with three young children, therefore as a result furniture pieces were created under the stair cases that not only allowed for the children to put their toys, but also as a play and sitting area. Concrete floors and steel staircases kept the characteristics of the school but when combined with plywood, it resulted in a bright and warm interior. For more photos of the space, check out Standard Studio.

No Love

We first launched Daily News Project back in February of 2014 with a collection titled No Love, featuring collaborations with New York based design duo Dee and Ricky, as well as local illustrator Adrian Forrow. Below is a photo we recently developed from a roll of film that was taken in a Toronto-based studio while we were shooting the posters Adrian designed for us.

Matoma - The Wave feat. Madcon

We traveled to London, Ontario last weekend to hang with the homies Alex and Drew, known as The Chainsmokers, who are currently on their Friend Zone Tour across North America. It was nice to see those guys again, after spending some time with them at Veld this past summer. Since we couldn't make their show in Toronto at Sound Academy the night before, we decided to jump in the Jeep on Sunday afternoon and make the trip two hours west of the city. We arrived to the London Music Hall early evening and had the great opportunity of hanging with Matoma, Norwegian DJ and record producer, who is touring with the duo. There were nothing but positive vibes in the bus and throughout the whole night with that crew. Today, Matoma dropped his first ever album called Hakuna Matoma, and in his own words, "it will grow with you over time." Check out one of our favourites below, and visit his Soundcloud for more.


We recently connected with Paris-based photographer Jared Leopard, who we thought would be a great edition to our photo series project, after coming across his Instagram. The series is titled "Sequence," and can be defined as an ordered collection of objects in which repetitions are allowed. This series took four days and a four hour road trip to shoot, followed by another month of editing, and stitching photos together as they were almost all shot with a tilt shift lens. Check out the preview below, and select any image to view the series in full.
