Premiere: CGB talks the growing impacts of substance use on new track “Drugs”

Vancouver, BC – They say that you can get the most accurate perspectives of an overall society by looking at it’s music, and rap has proven to consistently be the most successful means of increasing overall understanding. Ottawa/Vancouver emcee, CGB recently reached out to us about premiering his newest track “Drugs” that specifically speaks on a subject that is prevalent and sits close to home for many in our society.

Besides bringing a variety of intellectual bars, CGB was able to elaborate on this track and explain:

“With over 400 opioid related deaths in the first half of the year alone, it gets hard to not worry about the outcome of our loved ones who are struggling with drug addiction. These feelings are much stronger for those in British Colombia, the home to some of the worst illicit drug use in North America. With numbers rising higher and higher, more and more incidents in Vancouver over the past few months are being linked to the deadly drug fentanyl. This past April, BC’s chief health officer declared a public health emergency.”

We talked with Missouri R&B talent Trey Forever about his commendable new EP 92 Forever

Vancouver, BC – The trapsoul movement is well and alive, and it’s currently revived the R&B community with a new surge of momentum of support for the genre. Bryson Tiller may have been the first to put a warranted spotlight on the combination of heavy bass tones and slowed down, breathy croons. But, there are actually a couple other artists who are making their own unique sounds for the sub-genre. If you search for it on Soundcloud you might just stumble upon a gem like we think we have.

We had a chance to connect with Missouri artist, Trey Forever about the recent release of his EP 92 Forever. Maybe you’re one of the few people who isn’t a fan of Tiller. But on this particular project, it’s tracks like “Drunk Conscious” that implore us to request you to hold your reservations until you take a listen. Trey brings his own unique songwriting skills that make this project a cut above the average. Stream the project, and check out our introduction to the singer below.

“This EP, to me, means the start of something beautiful and promising. This project was an introduction of me as a man, artist, and talent.” – Trey Forever

Trevor Mills features Kitsilano Secondary students in new visuals for “More Than a Moment”

Vancouver, BCOriginally published September 6, 2016Trevor Mills has become a key figure in the local community for mental health advocacy as well as an established MC.

It was only a few months ago that we caught up with him to discuss his successful EP, Evidence of a Struggle, which further helped to increase the dialogue on the issue, as well as the notable project. Trevor is back with his latest release, and the emcee let us premiere the latest visuals off the EP for “More Than A Moment.”

Commonly known for his work with youth in the Vancouver community, the video fittingly features bars and appearances from a few of his former students from Kitsilano Secondary: Simon New, Eva Stulberg & Emma Jones. Production for this track was impressively handled by other former student, Max Maier, making the track a truly organic accomplishment. Accompanied by haunting backdrops of extending forests and foggy haze, the result of the collaboration is a compelling example of connectivity through music. We’ve always supported his projects, and “More Than A Moment” is another example of how he’s utilized his platform to evoke positive change. Check out the track below.

We caught up with Seth Dyer to talk about his new track “Faas”

Toronto, ON – Toronto artist Seth Dyer recently released a new self-produced single titled “Faas”.

“Faas” is a shot fired at anyone getting too faas, and getting caught up in other people’s business. The track itself was inspired by a conversation Seth overheard that was all gossip. So Seth decided to pen this track to remind us all to first focus on ourselves before getting caught up in judging others and their situations.

But it’s more than that. This song is also a reminder to refocus your energy. The effort you put into talking smack about others is much better channelled into something productive. Instead of getting caught up in gossip and shade, Seth stays in his own lane; writing songs, producing beats, and doing what only Seth Dyer can do. That’s how moves get made. Check out “Faas” below, and peep our Q&A with Seth after the jump.
