Vancity’s New Amsterdam Cafe headlines Hot Boy Thursday with anticipated local lineup


Vancouver, BC – Next Thursday, May 26th, some Vancouver talent is set to come together for a showcase at the New Amsterdam Cafe in downtown Vancity. Ninetyfour just released his debut project (which got it’s own rad review) and is worth coming out for just to witness his set.

Combined with the forces of Heatwave, Checkmate & Concise, Raeliss, Aktu El Shabazz, and Noah Dacosta – it’s guaranteed to be an evening of rad music with some of your fav local artists. We’ve stepped up alongside colleagues at DIPT to sponsor, so come downtown to drop us a line and show your support for the local scene. Capacity will be limited, so this is fair warning that you should get there earlier to make sure you get your free pack of rollies with entrance.

Toronto’s SNDWRx makes international strides in ‘audio marketing’ industry


Toronto, ON – We’ve got an interesting update from our man Didier Tovel who we originally introduced to our viewers as C4ENT. You might remember his project The C4 Experiment (hosted by Christopher Walken) which spawned some gems like “Heroes” by Saukrates featuring Choclair.

He’s now part of SNDWRx, an audio collective “composed of internationally award winning creatives, recording artists, sound designers, producers, music supervisors, engineers and talent directors who all specialize in bringing ideas to life.” Artists looking for a home to record their next project will want to take note since SNDWRx – located in Toronto’s historical Kensington Market – offers full service facilities for sound recording, mixing mastering and more. So far they’ve worked with huge brands like Adidas and McDonald’s and have plenty of other projects in the works. We linked up with C4 briefly to get a statement for a better idea of how the collective works:

This year, we opened our Kensington Market studio at 250 Augusta Ave. and have since done work for many brands such as Adidas, Land Rover, Honda, McDonald’s and more. On our website, you can even make your own beat using your laptop keyboard.

Immerze teams up with The Stunt Man for “96 Civic”


Vancouver, BC – Vancouver rapper (by way of Toronto) Immerze recently linked up with Grammy nominated engineer The Stunt Man for this new release titled “96 Civic” off the forthcoming Before I Go mixtape.

“96 Civic” is an old school inspired jam about one of Immerze’s first cars: the ’96 Honda Civic. Everyone in the rap game is thirsting for a Benz or a Ferrari or something. But realistically, most guys on the come-up in the rap game ARE actually still behind the wheel in a hoopty. That’s just how it is. So instead of flexing off about the car he doesn’t actually own, Immerze tells us about the car he used to own. And the end result is one of the most relatable real songs I’ve heard in a minute. Check it out.

ScHoolboy Q announced as the headliner for Friday night at NXNE Port Lands


Toronto, ON – The annual NXNE music festival goes down in Toronto this year from June 13 through June 19. And we’re super stoked because ScHoolboy Q was recently announced as the headlining act for Friday night (June 17) at NXNE’s new Port Lands festival venue.

The evening has a ridiculously stacked hip-hop and R&B line-up that includes Ghostface Killah, Shamir, Mick Jenkins, and Toronto’s own Tasha the Amazon and Daniel Caesar.

For the record – I was blessed enough to be in attendance at ScHoolboy’s first ever show in Canada at Pemberton Music Festival a few years ago. And to this day, that was one of my favourite live shows of all time. Guy moves the crowd like none other.

And the fact that he’s performing on a bill with an OG like Ghostface, and a bunch of the illest new wave urban artists like Mick and Daniel is so legendary. This is a night for the hip-hop heads. And if you’re into indie music as well, Saturday’s line up features Father John Misty, Mother Mother, Dan Mangan, The Zolas, Devin Cuddy Band, and more. Weekend passes are available for $79.50 each, or $149 for VIP.
