Jviden has us feeling like “Dopamine” on his newest release


Brampton, ON – Brampton’s wave continues as Jviden returns with his latest single “Dopamine”. The track features additional vocals from newly budding songstress MAUJ, as well as production from dF(by now you probably recognize him for his credits with K. Forest and other rising talents from central Canada).

All three artists have had a particularly strong start to 2016 with their own individual solid releases. Following our last interview with Jviden on his debut project, Pure, the release of “Dopamine” is the perfect followup.

Stream “Dopamine” below, and look out for more from Jviden in 2017.

Atlanta-based artist Quie speaks about self-producing his debut album, Darkside


Atlanta, GA – Coming through our speakers from Georgia, Atlanta artist Quie has been quietly working away for most of 2016 on his debut album, Darkside. The project dropped on Soundcloud last week, and we recently had the opportunity to get the low-down from Quie on the motivation and inspiration for the album.

Composed of 6 tracks, the project is fully original in its’ approach to the genre, with a variety of atmospheric vibes. The dark instrumentals, and blurry musical definitions help the tracks comfortably seep into the ears of his listeners. Whether he’s smoothly crooning the high notes of “Numb” or bringing a stronger energy on “X Piles”, the arrangement of tracks will appeal to a wide audience.

Check out our conversation on Darkside below, and stream the album.

Los Angeles artist Tate Tucker talks about keeping things on the “Low”


Los Angeles, CA – Earlier this month Los Angeles artist Tate Tucker dropped “Low” (produced by KJ and Garrett Lodge) as his first single release of the year.

Following up to his previously released “HCIBM”, Tate uses “Low” to look at the more skeptical side of his relations with females. While “HCIBM” was the super idealistic love song we all wanted to hear, “Low” serves as the dark, realistic love song that we actually need to hear.

Backed by KJ and Garrett Lodge’s organ-backed booty bounce beat, Tate kicks off 2017 with a heavy reality check. Up until this point, Tate’s been pretty happy-go-lucky. Now he’s diversifying and switching up the vibe on us. Check out “Low” below, and scope our Q&A with Tate after the jump.

Super Saiyan Triz: Brampton newcomer B-Tra!n talks about his new release


Brampton, ON – 17-year-old Brampton newcomer B-Tra!n (of the Trail$ide crew) just released a new record titled “Super Saiyan Triz”.

Drawing the Dragon Ball Z comparison, B-Tra!n uses this record to tap into his alter ego “Super Saiyan” persona.

B-Tra!n is still honing in on his flow, and the record’s still a little rough. But the track bangs, and I’m stoked so to see what else B-Tra!n has cooking up in the future. Check out the record below, and scope our Q&A with B-Tra!n after the jump.

Do What The Bass Says: Del Bel & Clairmont The Second just want you to dance


Toronto, ON – Over the weekend Toronto pop-noir group Del Bel teamed up with Clairmont The Second for this new collaborative record titled “Do What The Bass Says.”

“Do What The Bass Says” is a sultry, booty bounce track about movement and dance. It’s a record to listen to when you want to move your body and explore motion without any inhibition. “When working on this song, I was thinking about frequencies and physicality and movement and the body – how music moves through our bodies, and how our minds and bodies respond,” says Del Bel artist Lisa Conway.

ONEHUNNIT: Trayvon Palmer discusses his latest release, featuring Lex Marcello & JRD


Kitchener, ON – TriCity artist Trayvon Palmer recently teamed up with his Avont Inc label mates Lex Marcello and JRD for this new joint titled “ONEHUNNIT” (produced by Maximillian Beats).

“ONEHUNNIT” is a record about the importance of keeping things genuine and real. While we’ve been inundated with the whole “keep it 100” motto lately, Trayvon says that “ONEHUNNIT” is a track for all of us everyday people keeping things genuine in our own respective lives.

The track started off as a rough beat played at the beginning of a studio session. Trayvon decided to hop on the beat. And shortly afterwards, Lex Marcello and JRD laced their own verses. The track was entirely made in-house, with all production and verses courtesy of the Avont Inc fam. Check out the track below, and scope our Q&A with Trayvon after the jump.
