Launched last year, Toronto's Foundry series of events will bring an impressive run of producers and DJs to the Canadian city for three consective weekends beginning next month. Artists like Four Tet (pictured above), Shed, Carl Craig, Shigeto, Anthony "Shake" Shakir, Cosmin TRG, DJ Harvey, and local techno hero Nautiluss are among the acts set to perform at the series' six events—spread across the Friday and Saturday of three separate weekends. Furthermore, this year's Foundry events will take over Toronto's Tower Automotive building, presenting its comprehensive range of electronic talents in the stark atmosphere of a decades-long abandoned building.
Full details of Foundry's 2014 run—which begins with Four Tet headlining on March 14 and concludes with Carl Craig closing out the night of April 5—can be found here. The event series has also produced a short teaser video for the upcoming nights, which can be watched below.

I'm not as excited about the lineup as I was last year (still good though), but the venue is way cool.

Haha the line up is fucking insane...how could you not be excited for it? I guess you are not as familiar with these artists as I am. Skudge, Shed, Efdemin, Cosmin TRG...Toronto is in for one hell of a fucking treat.

Levels is...decent...damn better than a lot of the shite dominating the charts at the moment. It sounds absolutely nothing like...a billion and one similar tracks in this big-room style. I always had a soft spot.

I didn't say I'm not excited, I was just more excited last year (Bicep, Andy Stott, Martyn, Andres, etc).
