Vancouver’s Global Syndicate host release party for new project [Photos/Review]
Vancouver, B.C. – Global Syndicate – of Black Phoenix Records – released their Raekwon-hosted mixtape From the Ashes at Venue in Vancovuer, and although it was a Wednesday night, the fans were out in droves.
R&B artist Zane Gold started the night off with a showcase which included 4 incredible dancers – including rising star Katherine Slack – clad in Black Phoenix spandex for his singles “Galaxy Destroyer” and “Like a Dime.”
LaLa and Pai, who make up the ambitious rap group Global Syndicate, performed from their new mixtape and brought up Killawatt Records pals Lamar Ashe and HeatWave for “Catalina” and “Classic,” respectively. The also performed “Put It Down,” a track which features the legendary N.O.R.E on the mixtape, as well as “Lost” featuring labelmate Zane Gold. The group has a strong following and the crowd reacted accordingly: the girls were a little rowdy and the guys made a lot of noise.
It was a fun night: a true Black Phoenix party, judging by the abundance of drunkenness and the scantness of clothing.
