JWalk – Get Some ft. Camm Hunter [Audio]


Toronto, ON – Toronto’s own JWalk teamed up with Camm Hunter (from Down With Webster) to drop this dope new track on us entitled “Get Some.” It’s a catchy, vibed out tune about the pursuit of booty. But JWalk and Camm aren’t boasting about scoring, or anything like that. Most joints about “getting some” come across as really entitled. You feel me? Those two dudes are just sending pleas out into the universe, and hoping that the stars align and result in some sexy time.

My fingers are crossed that some dude somewhere ends up whipping this track out at last call at the bar; and scores it big. The track was recorded and mixed by Sunny Diamonds at Diamond Factory Studios. Check out the audio below. And if you’re feeling it, keep an eye out for JWalk’s upcoming performance alongside T. Mills on Mar. 25 at the Virgin Mobile Mod Club in Toronto.

Dragon Fli Empire – Train Of Thought [Video]


Calgary, AB – It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Dragon Fli Empire. And by a minute, I mean it’s been more than a month. I was getting antsy. The Calgary-based duo (rapper Teekay and producer DJ Cosm) spent February touring Europe for their promotional Mission Statement European Tour. They just got back home to the YYC and launched some new visuals for “Train Of Thought” off Mission Statement.

The video was shot during the tour, with additional footage by DJ Suspect, DJ Stinoe, and others. Think of this as the DFE-equivalent of a postcard. They take us through their travels abroad in Paris, Poitiers, Strasbourg, Chambéry, Lyon, Brussels, Kassel, Cologne and Berlin. And all the while, we get to groove out to a string of versing that is Teekay’s own introspective “Train Of Thought.” The track’s beat is courtesy of AJV (for Double Agent Media), and cuts were done by DJ Cosm. Check it out below. And check out Mission Statement over here.
