Toronto to Buffalo: FalconCrest & Twistello team up for “Disco Biscuits” (Sponsored)


Toronto, ON – “Disco Biscuits,” produced by ColJon23, has FalconCrest and Twistello bridging the Toronto and Buffalo connection. The three wordsmiths go in for a lyrical slaughterhouse. A grizzly beat, that knocks through the speakers in any situation, complete with the real grit of hip-hop lyrics, makes this one a street anthem.

Independent label High Heat Records continues its ruthless succession, with its well-machined craft of bringing back the real hip-hop culture and sound.

“Disco Biscuits” is one for the books. From Toronto to Buffalo, this will be bumping on every street corner, with a hook you cannot forget.

Dave Fields joins forces with Seth Kay for nocturnal new track “Can’t Sleep”


Vancouver, BC – Dave Fields is a rapper and producer based in Vancouver, Canada. He’s had two major projects since 2016: a full-length album titled Neck Deep and an EP titled Muses, both independently released. He’s also become one of our favourite voices emerging from the West Coast due to his unique sound.

His new single “Can’t Sleep” (featuring Seth Kay) dropped today and is a testament to the night owl lifestyle that many artists inhabit. Throughout the track the two rappers examine the various burdens that keep them awake: someone on their mind, debt, the moments from their past that can’t be changed. Stream “Can’t Sleep” below.
