I’m so happy for the success Soulection has seen in the past year. Pushing the L.A. beat scene to new and exciting places, this music collective, co-led by Joe Kay, has quickly become one of my favourite internet radio shows ever. They’re on every Saturday at 1 p.m. EST on the KBeach radio stream, and you can listen to past episodes on their Mixcloud.
Get familiar with these guys, they’re putting out some of the most interesting music in the world right now, and I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for 2013.
My friend BriskinTheHouse just put a new music video out for his song “ViolettSmoke.” I posted about his tape Searching for Staoriiwhen he dropped it, and I can’t emphasize how well he reps Toronto. Seriously check it. Impressive visuals, and some wonderful camerawork by the man SoTeeOh.
So beat man Elaquent rolled through Toronto last week to promote his new project, Parallel. If you don’t know about eQ, kill yourselfhe’s a Guelph-based producer working in the realm of “cloud-hop”, with loopy, weird time-signatures, and knockin’ drum kicks colouring his music. Like crayon marks outside the lines of a picture book, his music waves in and out the conventional. Hope your imagination has the required capacity for this stuff, it’s left of left field. Just saying.
"White Dress" by Kanye West, off The Man With the Iron Fists OST.
Can’t wait to see RZA's directorial debut. Also, I would love to “direct” a music video like this. It's basically a weekend of chilling around the world with models and taking pictures. Yeah, I think I could do that for a living. DanTheMan said he had a day to throw it together. Whenever you wanna call that’d be great, Mr. West!
