HUMAN FEEL is a statement of the universal need for personal contact, emotional connection, and acceptance across cultural, ethnic, and gender boundaries. By addressing a very personal feeling of longing in an open and positive way, Kendal Thompson has created a call to action. Paired with a stunning video directed by Dylan Mitro, the message of Human Feel is clear: No matter who you are, what you are, or where you are, love and acceptance can define us as humans if we choose it.
Hill, the brain child of Canadian songwriter/producer Brenna MacQuarrie, has very fittingly teamed up with Caitlin Cronenberg for her latest video "On Camera". The song itself is an exploration of the more taboo side of sexuality, specifically the world of BDSM, voyeurism and "power being willfully surrendered".
On Camera was produced and co-written by LNR's very own Mike Schlosser.
Who are we?
We help artists refine (or find) their voice and then we help them make sure that voice has the best possible chance of being heard. What we do is beyond music production or simple branding, it’s about being authentic. It’s about allowing an artist to be the best version of themselves. We like to thinking of it as “you-ing”.
Mike Schlosser is a Toronto based producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. His production career started in 2008 with the Curtis Santiago "Have Mercy Mixtape". Utilizing a production style that combined his love of many different genres and influences from Indie to Metal, and Folk to Hip Hop, the mixtape was downloaded over 50,000 times and generated several SXSW showcases as well as a feature artist spot in the "New Music Conference" at Cleveland's Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame.
In 2009 Mike took an assistant position with multiple Juno award winning producer and mixing engineer Timothy Abraham and assisted on recordings for Rob Szabo, Peter Katz, and Valerie Gore.
In 2014 Mike produced and mixed the album “The Vulture” for Iranian indie rock icon King Raam who Vanity Fair proclaimed “the godfather of Iranian indie rock”. In 2015 Mike was nominated for a West Coast Music Award for his work on Edmonton based electronic artist BMBSHL’s debut album “BMBSHL CMD". In 2016, Polish TV show “Must Be The Music” featured a performance of the Schlosser co-written “Shockwaves” by Anna Cyzon live to over 2 million live viewers. The song went on to win the polish based Carpathia International Song Festival.
Mike currently works out of The Hive in Toronto, Canada.

Why keep everything "in house"?
From start to finish, a polished, congruent brand for you and your music means, not re-explaining yourself to several companies, ever having a miscommunication from one source to another, an overview from start to finish of the entire process. It's ideal that the team producing your music and your team promoting the music should be working together and ensuring the music is getting to the correct audience.
