Canada is really starting to grow an impressive group of artists, Nick Wisdom first caught my attention with his ASL Singles Club release “Snoopin” & “Beam Me Up” and now he delivers another amazing track with the recently HW&W signed Montreal artist Pomo. Nick’s 4th release “Missus Peel” is out December 10th on Jellyfish Records and includes rappers Moka Only, Solar Scenery, Jon Rogers and of course beat maker Pomo. Make sure to get it for free when it comes out, stream the track below or you can download it from the Jellyfish Records Bandcamp here.

Three Vancouver beatmakers; Ekali, The Oneiroscopist (Mountainous Collective) & VZNS collided and created a post-sad future RnBass track entitled “Minutes.” You can expect lustful energy, syncopated rhythms and luscious synths.
Stagnant Cult is a filmmaker and photographer from Oakland who asked Vancouver band Sunshine if their music could be used for a video he was working on. Sunshine agreed after previewing the racy teaser, so here’s the brand new video for “Arnprior”. I bet they totally knew the video would be this crotch-filled.
Vowing not to be outdone by their own video, Sunshine one-upped themselves with the release of another video for “The Star Spangled Rammer”. This one is pretty tame by comparison though because it only involves boners and cleaning up after you blow your wad.

In 2013, Benjamin Laub aka Grieves has had a year that would drive most men to despair. He admitted to me that at one point he seriously considered giving up rapping for good–but not for long. The Rhymesayers Entertainment rapper picked up the pieces and soldiered on.
Over a few beers in the tour van, I talked to Grieves about his horrible year, creating gangster beats, and making tracks about “not being able to get a boner“–among other things.
I know what you’re thinking. What could cause a rapper to consider giving it all up? Why don’t we hear more songs about not being able to get a boner? You’ll have to listen to the interview to get these questions answered.
Grieves “Against the Bottom” This track nearly didn’t make it on Grieves‘ 2011 record Together/Apart.
Grieves “Irreversible” ft Mr. Lif This old track is a personal favorite of Grieves. Why? Listen to our chat!

Bieber remixes, flips or edits come by the handfuls so really giving it a nice touch is quite a challenge. Local talent Spurz gives us a nice house flip to Justin’s new track “Change Me” that released just last night, stream or download the track below!

NYC based duo Gatekeeper always brings a unique approach to electronic music. Never going about the conventional path or bounded by the restraints of genre specific structure, and their latest EP Young Chronos is no exception. Their 2012 immersive LP EXO gathered influence from highly futuristic textures, acid dripping eco-systems, and HD everything and seems to be the pre-curser to YC. The finale of Exo seemed to create a tear in time-space awakening us on earth in the time of the gods. This EP is much more human using orchestral and choir samples intertwining with spastic psy-trance synths to make it feel more like an environment than a typical dance track. The EP is split in 3 dance psy/hardcore tracks and 3 cinematic interludes, all together is a medieval baroque epic. I can’t wait to see what is next for the NYC duo, here is their biblical-apocalyptic video for the first track on the EP Sword of the Gathering Clouds of Heaven by Thunderhorse Video!
80s films. Dreamy pads. Stacatto snares. These are a few of the things that Vancouver’s Kutcorners and Marvel evidently share a weakness for, as they’ve proved over the last 12 months of bootlegs. This week the duo return with a tastefully sparse rework of Ty Dolla Sign, whose carefree flow fits nicely over the subtle arrangement. Grab it free off their Soundcloud.
