JD Era – BARZ Volume 1 [Mixtape] #Premiere

Toronto, ON – Once tucked in the shadows of the black market, this raw commodity has seen its stock rise exponentially in the past several years, with no signs of slowing down. The highly anticipated BARZ Volume 1 mixtape from Juno-nominated rapper JD Era has been released and is available immediately for free download.

Era has been dropping tracks for 9 straight weeks in a series known as #EraFriday, leading up to the release of his first official project since 2012’s No Handouts. BARZ, mixed by DJ T.LO, was crafted with bringing back the essence of hip-hop culture in mind and living up to the original definition of what hip-hop considered a “mixtape.

With “Rice In Chinatown,” which received stunning visual support from director Machete Cortez, along with the Cameo-supported “Candy” or the RoadsArt-produced banger “That Ain’t My Style,” JD Era has given ample reasons to take in BARZ in it’s entirety. It’s cut like a 90’s classic, and set to make your speakers pop. To break it down, in this game, if you don’t have BARZ, you don’t have anything.

And as Era himself points out, BARZ is just an appetizer for bigger things to come:

BARZ is something I’m giving the fans until I drop the main course this summer! Enjoy.

His latest release has caught the attention of industry peers and executives and has sparked conversation on what the next big move will be for the independently run, Toronto-based Black Market Music Group. Era’s strong work ethic is undeniable and the consistency in the growth of the BMMG movement is sure to continue with him at the helm. The Toronto Independent Music Award winning artist has made the studio his second home, and continues to work on his official album debut.

Along with the new mixtape, Era has launched a new website at, to keep fans better informed on new developments of both his artistry and other BMMG interests.
