Hot on the heals of the Lil Wayne & Young Thug “beef” Vancouver based duo Filthy Romeo add one to the fire. One of Wayne’s better tracks as his career began to decent, basically as soon as he took up skateboarding. But let’s not forget his music up to that point, like Wizzy Khalifa his prime was before his success. And compared to Young Thugs year of most features, Lil Wayne’s year of features lyrically surpassed in huge strides. Baring these things in mind, just enjoy a little revitalization of a very quashed on career. Filthy Romeo = Konrad Old Money & Unkle Ricky.

Still believed to be one of the most forward thinking in Grime from our province by this two thumb haver is, Victoria based WERK. His debut EP through MalLabel Music last year has been making it’s way onto the cloud in pieces, the latest being this dirty lil number. The EP in whole is served up on Bandcamp as a whole supper 😉
It being Victoria there’s no better time to get familiar with this valid Victorian. And what better way than a handful of his contributions to the High Noon Artist Pact.

Fuuuurq. UMM loud. Think of the last thing (could be anything) that out did itself repeatedly, over and over like 5 times. Then think of how it did what it did. Then hit play ‘Skurt Reynolds’ . ^^ Then, pull yourself up on the floor and repeat play.

Another beautiful day – a perfect opportunity to enjoy some new tunes in the sun! Today we’ve got a mix of RnB, house and future vibes. Pay attention – lots of up and comers in here!
Too bad really that Mother’s Day has past us by for another year. This would have been the best taste of future music to blast down the block as you pull into her driveway with a bundle of flowers. The volume of the music not so much being the statement, but the volume of “feels” billowing through the windows. The feels.
From: Me to you.

Through the label under is own personal oversee Parisian Kartell has released a new one. As per usual, his unusually aloof way of gently swishing his mastery of the most OG chilling tracks into your dome piece is in full effect. The single comes from what is said to be a six track EP entitled ‘Tender Games’ . #RocheMusique

Paroozing through the tube of you and through the music’s of circa 08, many an old school name came up. Including that of the beloved Basement Jaxx. Amongst the freshest of the fresh to this day. This merits mention, not just because of Vula’s soulFULL presence on the track before you now. But also by the undeniably UK House lain down by Butler & Bontan for the all together Ultra Music release.

If you’re a fan of Grimes, and other rad experimental up and comers, you should DEFINITELY hop on this young talented musician. Loving this laid back 80’s vibe. I can see big things on the horizon for this young girl. Glad this hit my inbox for sure.
“A new female singer/songwriter has popped up in the mix recently, and she goes by the name of HANA. She’s currently being mentored by Canadian songwriter/producer Grimes and her accomplice Blood Diamond and could be the next big thing. Her track “Clay,” of which her and Blood Diamonds produced, that was just released has a transparency to it, giving her voice a raw aspect that ranges all over the choral map. Check it out, and if you dig, keep an eye out for HANA in the future.”
