Calgary, AB – Calgary artists Pleuto and Fingaz just teamed up to hit us with this new single titled “Vents.” This song is a spew-off of disjointed ideas and thoughts with that classic Pleuto sound that I’ve been hailing as THE sound of Calgary.
There’s no real structure to “Vents”; Pleuto hits us with the first and third verses, while Fingaz comes in on the second and last verses. But it sounds like one big ol’ freestyle divided up into four verses. There’s no hook. Which usually I’d be mad about. But the track is called “Vents.” They’re venting on us. It wasn’t meant to have a hook. Check it out below.
Toronto, ON – Musicians like Prince, Queen, Guns N’ Roses and Michael Jackson dominated the 80s and set the bar unbelievably high for live musical performances.
As such, very few artists that represent my generation have been able to measure up to the superhuman standards that were established during the 1980s and before.
With that said, one of the few songwriting and musical performance anomalies of my generation is undoubtedly Miguel and I didn’t truly have an appreciation for his level of artistry until I saw it firsthand.
Vancouver, BC – JayKin just dropped some fire on his latest track “Social Media”. While his smooth flow fits well over the Dave Fields production JayKin enlists the help of homie Sik-k (who currently resides in Korea) to spice up the vibe. Check the track out below.

Vancouver, BC – After writing for years, 23B’s work has finally come to fruition in the form of “Catharsis.” Through music and one’s own thinking, every track takes the audience on a deep and intriguing journey. Emotional responses are triggered and songs become naturally addictive, stimulating affairs. Relationship troubles and success, financial woes, family loss, drug issues, violence, death and crime are all explored, drawing people in to gain understanding and their own personal perspective on these life events.
“Hip-hop is a constantly evolving genre of entertainment requiring a connection and involvement with fans. ‘Catharsis’ offers the listeners real occurrences, facts and daily life to make them feel like they are part of the music.”
