'As I walked into the dollar store, with its windows full of cheap plastic toys & electronics, the middle-aged clerk immediately gives me an unimpressed glare. I ignore her and continue on, wandering up and down the crowded aisles of the claustrophobic dollar store. I play with the idea of purchasing a variety of poorly made objects before settling on a pair of knock-off Beats by Dre headphones and a bottle of metallic nail polish. As I approach the counter to purchase the items, the cashier glares at me again and without hesitation asks to search my white plastic bag. I comply, and after looking in and seeing nothing suspicious, she rings me through and I head out the door taking in a breath of fresh air.'
Même Prix 2010 is a collection of selected tracks produced and composed by Levi Bruce - a.k.a. Gucchi Babe - during the winter and spring of 2014, split between his time in Montréal and rural Ontario. The album title is both a reference and tribute to the aforementioned dollar store Bruce frequents in Plaza St. Hubert in Montréal.
Gucchi Babe is the musical project of Levi Bruce, his music flits between house, hip-hop, footwork, and other derivatives of these genres and styles.
