Zach Taylor – Set It Off [Audio]

Calgary, AB – We just got in some fresh new audio from one of Calgary’s up-and-coming young MCs. And by young; I mean that this dude is only 16 years old. Everybody, meet Zach Taylor. He recently dropped his latest single entitled “Set It Off.” Zach’s an interesting cat – he’s pretty outspoken regarding his struggles with depression and anxiety. Yet he’s seemingly found a release for himself within his music; that is, rapping and producing. He does both.

This joint puts Zach all out on the table for us. And he goes all out. His flow is still developing. But he’s definitely setting it off. And I’m stoked to see what else he has in store for us. The beat was done by Epistrabeats. The track was written by Zach, and mixed by Zach and Transit. Cop a free download of it over here. And check it below.

Stankowski – Right Now ft. Marvin Divine [Audio]

Calgary, AB – Calgary’s young stunner on the come-up – Stankowski – just dropped the first single off his forthcoming debut mixtape (due out this summer). This joint is titled “Right Now.” And it was produced by Bamfibeats.

So here’s the deal: Stankowski is only 17 years old. I have huge respect for the young cats putting themselves into the game. His flow is still maturing. But he’s got this infectious happy-go-lucky vibe going for him. He compares it to the Gym Class Heroes. I feel that. And peppy vibes aside, this track is actually really hungry. Happy hungry. I mean listen to that Marvin Divine hook: “I gotta get it right now/ Gotta get it right now.” Also some solid word-play going on here. Like when Stankowski’s all like, “Gettin’ green/ Like CeeLo” (because – you know – CeeLo Green). Or when he compares himself to John Stamos. Pure gold. Check it below.
