On a weekly basis, we’ll select eight new submissions and feature them on our homepage for at least a 24 hour period.

Trak – Faded Frequencies

Toronto recording artist and songwriter Trak, originally from Egypt, recently dropped a 7-track EP called Faded Frequencies. The Yohann Mercy-produced “Hold Up” was the first single released off the album, and focuses on Track’s aspirations and strong will to succeed in the music industry. It’s been featured on various notable playlists including Spotify’s Northern Bars and Shisha Lounge.

“Trak is a true lyricist at heart capitalizing on his love for different music genres and cultures to mesh and fuse between them. Trak is known for utilizing multiple flows with his abrasive honest tone, never allowing for a boring moment.”

The high energy “Hold Up” (and the rest of the Faded Frequencies project) can be found on Apple Music, Spotify, and other digital outlets.

Snotty Nose Rez Kids – I Can’t Remember My Name

Featuring Shanks Sioux

Snotty Nose Rez Kids return with their first release since being shortlisted by Polaris for their album, The Average Savage. “I Can’t Remember My Name” comes in support of the group’s next release, TRAPLINE, which is set to drop on Friday, May 10.

“Snotty Nose Rez Kids bring an aggressive and assertive energy that imitates the way society portrays Indigenous people and POC across Turtle Island. Their ancestors were stereotyped as savages, and they are often looked down on as the ‘pissed off generation’ who haven’t ‘gotten over’ what colonization has done to their lands and people. Through stylish delivery, Snotty Nose Rez Kids assert themselves as the father 7th Generation and let the world know they aren’t changing for anyone. The future is theirs.

Along with the new album, the group’s TRAPLINE Tour kicks off in London, UK this coming Wednesday, May 8, and will reach Canada on Tuesday, May 21 with a show inside Calgary’s Commonwealth Bar & Stage. You can find tickets on SnottyNoseRezKids.com.

“I Can’t Remember My Name,” featuring Shanks Sioux, was directed by Ben Knechtel You can find the single on Apple Music, Spotify and other digital outlets.

Valintino – Income

Featuring KG (of ScrapGang)

Toronto up-and-comer Valintino recently dropped new visuals in support of his B.Young-produced single “Income” featuring KG of ScrapGang.

The video was powered by Shotby.Prince, and features additional cameos by SD The Grinch and Swiftonthebeat.

“Income” is available on Spotify, Apple Music and various other digital streaming platforms.

The new release follows Valintino’s S the Ghost-assisted “Wish You Well” single which dropped back in March, and his Nene (BabyBoy) EP which came out in January.


B1GJuice – Chandeliers

Brampton singer-songwriter B1GJuice recently dropped new visuals in support of his Dawm-produced single, “Chandeliers.”

Co-directed by B1GJuice and Samureye Films—and shot in Brampton, Burlington and Toronto—the video portrays the journey from rags to riches through a collage of intriguing cinematic snapshots.

“Written by B1GJuice and produced by Dawm, ‘Chandeliers,’ with an eerie bass-drum line and menacing vocal performance, the starkly arranged single is the perfect introduction to the world of B1GJuice.”

B1GJuice describes the song as a declaration of independence. He states, “Everyone has an idea or vision for your future when they see your potential, but no one has the ability to experience the pain you endured to get to that point. Make your own path; Create your own vision. Only then, will you truly reach success.”

Noah Maze – Team / Lost in the Maze

Ottawa recording artist and songwriter Noah Maze recently teamed up with director Tristan Rehwald to visualize his “Lost in the Maze” single. The video was released in support of his Thug Love EP which dropped back in March.

The video was posted to YouTube on the same day as Thug Love dropped with the following message:/p>

“Sometimes you have to go through the dark to see the light. Some people call it ‘life,’ I call it a ‘Maze.’ Some people fight to make it out, some people feel stuck and keep searching for a way out. Some people lose faith when they take the wrong route. When all along you had the skeleton key. You have to have faith in yourself and believe in yourself and you will find you always had a way. You always had the key you just had to make a change. You have to make a choice and when you do. You will be able to unlock the doors and live the aMAZEing life…”

The ADIUM-produced “Lost In The Maze” and Thug Love EP are available on Apple Music, Spotify, and other digital streaming outlets via Amazeing Music Group.

Noah is continuing to promote Thug Love, but has also just released a new track separate from the EP called “Team.” You can find that embedded below along with the “Lost in the Maze” video.

Bizarre (aka Rufus) – I Wish I Was High

Bizarre (aka Rufus) of D12 recently teamed up with Vancouver producer Strazdine for a new single off his forthcoming self-titled album (Rufus) dropping later this year. “I Wish I Was High” was followed by “Dab and Get High” which dropped on 4/20.

Along with working with Bizarre, Strazdine’s credits also include names and brands like PUMA, Trailer Park Boys and some recent work with DJ Oreo, to name a few.

Rufus will be Biz’s first solo studio album since Friday Night at St. Andrews was released back in May 2010. Since then he’s dropped a bunch of mixtapes including Pill God and Tweek Sity 2, as well as a ton of collaborations including the recent “Detroit 2 Memphis” with KingPin Skinny Pimp and Mexiveli.

You can check out the 97PK-directed video for I Wish I Was High” below. The single is available on Apple Music, Spotify, and other digital streaming platforms.

Myles Castello – Way Off

Scarborough recording artist and recent Warner Music signee Myles Castello dropped a lyric video on Friday for his new single, “Way Off.”

His sound has a measured subtlety to it. “I’m big on the pockets of songs, where the flows are,” explains Myles. “I have to have a certain pocket to groove to.”

“Way Off” is an ode woven around a near-universal young lovers quarrel, with listening payoff presented on a refrain built over a knocking drum beat. His eye towards weaving stories from his own experience, marred by catchy, danceable melodies and an obvious student of highly-executed pop combine in Myles Castello, making his mark in 2019.

You can find the single on Apple Music, Spotify, and other digital streaming platforms.
