Julius Jay & Hazmat – Serenity (Prod. Ashlan Phoenix) [Audio]

Montreal, QC – Fresh vibes from Montreal’s Hazmat and Julius Jay with a bit of a classic hip-hop feel. “Serenity” was produced by Ashlan Phoenix and recorded, mixed and mastered by MICH2050. Check it out below.

Earmilk: “Julius Jay and Hazmat are two Montreal based hip-hop artists that frequently work together. Their creative lyrical structure and overall flow have worked repeatedly well together on several tracks like “Lazy Dayz” and “Too Long”. The latest release from these two musicians is a collaboration with Ashlan Phoenix: a notorious mood maker and tempo tweaker. The talent entangled throughout the lyrical verses of “Serenity” is a positive sign of authenticity.

Shawn M. – Artist [Video]

Vineland, NJ – Runaway Records artist and founder Shawn M. reached out from South Jersey with his creative new visual release coming in support of his New Religion mixtape (available on DatPiff. This is the Curtiss King-produced “Artist.” In the video, Shawn introduces his crew and they’re later depicted (with Shawn) in animated form. Just when you think the video has transitioned completely to an animated state, Shawn turns off the TV it’s projecting from and the camera view reverts back to “normal.” Overall, incredibly well put together and it really gave the video a unique twist. Looking forward to seeing more from Shawn. Check out “Artist” after the jump and make sure you take in the New Religion project in its entirety.

Cosmo – The Embassy / Thinking of You [Audio]

Toronto, ON – “New age hip-hop meets old school soul” – Check out a pair of recent releases from Toronto up-and-comer Cosmo. This is “The Embassy” and “Thinking Of You.”

Cosmo – The Embassy

Produced by Lahghost & Ahkilo

2014 was a productive and quiet year for Cosmo. Now hoping to draw in some attention with this first single from the upcoming EP, which will be released sometime during the first quarter of 2015.

Being both a very sensual based and thought provoking artist I wanted to strike up some heavy hearted emotions that I felt could bring the track to life. In other words, allowing people to see more of what I actually seen in that moment. Seductive and surreal.
