Napoleon Skywalker

Napoleon Skywalker are a Calgary based Electro-Acoustic, Experimental, Dance-Party duo who will make it incredibly hard for you to stand still. 

Biographies that are written in the “third person” when you know it’s some dude sitting in the basement trying to make himself sound awesome, are weird. My name is Carson and my partner in crime is Jordie. We are two dudes who grew up together playing music in Calgary, AB. I am obsessed with all things drums and went on after high school to try and learn stuff at Berklee College of Music and Drumtech in the UK. What I should have done is bought an MPC, locked myself in the basement and saved a ton of money. Jordie started out on drums but after he realized that I was better in absolutely every way, he moved over to the best instrument of all, the computer!  Now he can steal grooves from James Brown, call them his own and nobody even gets upset. Except me. Thus, Napoleon Skywalker was born. I play drums because that’s the one thing I’m good at (ping pong too actually) and Jordie absolutely slays Ableton using live looping, sampling and some live analog synth magic. We play dance music and we make people dance. We also use dance music to lead people down some pretty interesting rabbit holes where we just get really weird and experimental for a bit before snapping it back to the party before anyone realized what happened. We love life and we love to part
