I have covered Johnny Gr4ves since he was poopin himself in his diapers. So from like, when he was around 15… He is one artist I have bet on, for a long time and I shamelessly plugged this kid cos he’s the bees knees maaannn. Well guess what?! Our very own BC native has popped up on the Radio! in Victoria! 107.3 KOOL FM That’s how I came across this thing… wtf?! The radio playing something Kool!? (pun intended)
– Ok so, I am cruising down the street in my 6-4 (realistically my 87 chevrolet s15 with the bald tires) and I tune into hearing about THIS kid/young adult and Unkle Ricky the hot fiyah producer out of Vancouver, on the radio. Atta boy! Check out his single “You Too” off the Bits & Pieces EP produced by Unkle Ricky, which is out now. Don’t be a boring gussy.
Seriously. Don’t sleep on the kid. And bug the radio hosts to keep playin’ this song because we need more of THAT on the radio.

Brevner isn’t just your typical heartthrob rapper that your momma warned you about. He is also an artist who is capable of being emotionally open unlike myself. I am a walnut shell of emotions, and the world around me is an arthritic monkey with no shitty ass tools to crack it open. I like this dude. He is what I don’t have the patience to be. Relatively open about his emotional state, and dope at what he does.
I would suggest giving this a listen over some mulled wine and a photo album of your ex. If you’re my age… Most likely though, for you young hamsters, it will just be an IG lurk from an incognito window on your Google Chrome.
Be on the lookout for the Faces LP due at the end of the year.
Strap yourselves in kids, this will be a bit of a long one!
We have been posting Konrad OldMoney on here for many a moon now and have made sure to keep up to all the kooky adventures he ends up being part of. Mr. OldMoney is a well established music producer from Vancouver / LA who has been consistently redefining music genres and the role of a music producer. Just in 2017 alone, he has produced and written a number one album “Countdown” for Polish POP Superstar – Dawid Kwiatkowski, which earned an MTV Best Artist Award in Poland, he then went on to produce and release Canadian folk singer and winner of CBC Searchlight 16, Desirée Dawson’s “Wildheart” album, which is a beautiful soulful journey. Desirée’s haunting vocals shine amongst an elegant balance of live instruments and carefully chosen poetry. Did OldMoney rest on his laurels? Nope, nope he didn’t kids. He then proceeded to produce a whole whackload of music for EA Sports – Fifa 17 “The Journey” Reveal Trailer, NBA Live and UFC3.
I recently got my greasy fingers on a copy of EA Sports UFC3 and gave it a spin. Being a huge fan of UFC2, I was really curious about the differences between the two games and also pretty pleased to see a Vancouver local representing strongly on such a dope video game title. I am getting a hang of the changes in gameplay now and started betting with my friends over who is going to kick who’s ass. Needless to say I have been miserably losing and therefore I’ve been resorting to things like classic misdirection, kicking the guy with the controller and just plain screaming as loud as I can to annoy them enough to leave mid match.
So…Here is the nerdy part. I’ma break this down for yous
The gameplay is dope! The strategy component is much more prominent in this one. If you wanna win, you gotta plan. The game uses Real Player Motion Tech (according to the nerdy sources out thurr on the innanet), which just makes errthang better. Knockout Mode is my favorite because it’s none of this wrestling stuff. Stand and Bang is my style ;) The players look more real and move better, overall a great improvement on the game. But also, another huge selling feature of this game, something EA does really really well, is the Soundtrack. You can see OldMoney’s name and song amongst artists such as CARDI B, Kendrick Lamarr, Snoop Dogg, A$AP Ferg, Big Boi, Dj Khaled, Future, Yo Gotti, Foster The People, G-Eazy, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, The Killers, Dave East, Run The Jewels, Tech N9ne, Vic Mensa and the list goes on. Hats off to the Music Supervisor Ricardo Almeida and the game producer Freddy Ouano for pulling off this madness and not disappointing us fans!
Check out the Official Soundtrack Announcement HERE
Now that we are oh so learned, let’s take a gander at the single “Undefeated” shall we? The song features Korean Rap Superstar JUNOFLO, who signed with rap legend Drunken Tiger’s Label FEEL GHOOD MUSIC (OldMoney has done lots of work with their squad in the past so this must be how this collab came about). Also Seattle based rap crew Dyme Def. The verses pack a solid punch to the face. The music is heavy orchestral smack em in the face with the subs turned up to 12. Konrad OldMoney also did the UFC3 Theme music for the game which you can hear during load screens when you turn on the console or play directly from the menus. Undefeated is hype as Fuuuuuuu….. Turn up ze bass kids!!
Here is the single:
Here is the Official Soundtrack:
Y’all already know how much I love intense music. Here is a dope new number from MHD guaranteed to get you wanting to dance, even if you can’t dance. Sometimes you just gotta let your legs do some wobbles while you’re drunk and pretend you don’t look like an idiot. MHD is great music to embarass yourself to ;) If all goes well, you’ll get laid after the club.
Hey kiddos! Okay, I have a treat for you! And no it’s not a nudie photo of myself covered in coconut oil, holding a gun. I know you’d be stoked cos there is nothing hotter than a fat old hairy man doing that… But I have other news! Vancouver’s very own lil ray of sunshine, Desirée Dawson has been killing it lately with her album Wild Heart, which went on to crack millions of plays online and make ladies and gents cry. The winner of CBC’s Searchlight Competition 2016 (Desirée) has teamed up with SKIO MUSIC and Vintage Currency Music to host a remix competition of her soulful Ukulele single Wild Heart, which was originally produced by none other than hometown hero, Mr. Konrad OldMoney himself. The winner of the remix competition was WYOMI from Sweden.
Looks like the damn Swedes did it again with their pop knowledge and shocking hair. This is some really dope brooding futurebass inspired ish. There are many amazing remixes of this song in the playlist below. Vintage Currency must have gotten some serious FOMO because they got 13 of these mufuckas in here! Runners up were Iset Sankofa and the Grei Show, and Sampet. In my opinion, Hazmatt remix has a dope drop and Gabe Mabry has a really dope chord structure and a fly ass remix overall . Each remix offers something different and all these dudes did their thing… Show Desirée and the artists some support for their hard work and share the hell out of this thing ;)
Well kids, I have been on a fucking absolute bender lately. Basically, I decided to just start doing the most. My NASA application got denied however. I wanted to be the first man to take a prostitute to space! They quickly replied with “As exciting as this proposition might be for some, we are sorry Mr.Guap, the space program only launches tax paying citizens into space” I guess I will continue to try and break the Guiness world record for the most panic attacks in a 7day period. So I decided to post another Chainsmokers song because I am a fan. Guap hardly fans out,as you all know. Especially since I am a fucking egomaniac, however, sometimes it’s healthy to be like, “WOW” over someone or something other than your own penis. This SICK BOY song ( oddly enough I have this same slogan tattooed on my lower back ), feels to me like a very direct commentary on the mental health of America at the moment. Hats off to them boys. Give this a spin and stop being stoooopiiddd.
I came out of being in life retirement to post this! Vinnie is back biyatches!!!
I got 13 women “pregnet” to this. Uma is an angel.
This song is as seductive as the voice of barry white on an 1980’s answering machine. Tune in kids.
Vinnie Guizzle represent.
I don’t know about you, but I find one of the best ways to discover underground music is to follow the breadcrumbs between artists, collectives, and independent labels, and sometimes this starts with a physical place. Back in April I spent a week in Austin with some of the people that make up the underground music scene there, and I’ve been eager to share my findings since. From metaphysical meanderings and Brainfeeder-esque experiments to lo-fi easy listening and, of course, no shortage of hip hop beats, there’s an endless variety to enjoy. This post barely scratches the surface! So, without further ado, here are some choice cuts to help you get acquainted.
lungfulls has been on my radar since I first heard “finite time here”: minimal, meditative, nature-inspired, like trickling water. Wake up with the sun and let your mind wander to his latest EP, “Palo Santo.”
With lungfulls comprising one of four in Azimuth Records, it should come as no surprise that the other three are producing equally-captivating music. Check em out!
Throwback to altura’s “waiting,” since we are still waiting on that EP… I’m joking. (Sort of.) But this one I’m very excited for, because it’s altura’s meticulous attention to detail that’s behind the hold-up. Pulling influences from Lapalux and FlyLo, upcoming “Light Leaks” will experiment with outdated technology as if to create the sound equivalent for its name (“A Color Map of the Sun”, anyone? Pretty Lights earned a Grammy nomination for that ground-breaking contribution. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, go listen. Go listen right now!)
For laid-back mixes, I recommend listening through JuiceLand Radio, which posts DJ sets for JuiceLand’s record store, Exploded Records. Of course, if you’re ever in Austin, hit up JuiceLand, too, because where else can you peruse a curated selection of beats, bass & jazz while shooting back shots of wheatgrass and yerba mate?! (I mean… LA, probably. But you get the gist.)
emune heads up the ALWAYS PROPER crew with masterfully-spun lo-fi jazz & hip hop journeys to let you kick back and forget the bullshit for a while. I’ve listened to a lot of emune and I gotta say, his EP “Retaliate” is still my favourite. Lots of thought-provoking samples sprinkled throughout. Link takes you to Bandcamp where it’s free for download.
I’m gonna leave off here because this post is getting hella long and the June sun is calling to me. Butactuallyonelastthing–
Shouts out to Amarillo-based SVNSET WAVES for hosting an endless stream of experimental gold on their Soundcloud. Been on this page for daaaays.
Don’t forget to follow the artists, y’all!
Some funky dope vibey shit for you from South Korea. Not the North. I would LOVE to get a song from North Korea just to see what is going on over there… Imagine!!! like, SUPREME LEADER THEME SONG! But I digress. This shit comes from the land of tall buildings and no fuckin around.
