Can’t exactly put my finger on why, but I’m a huge fan of this new Twin Peaks video for Heavy D. It’s a pretty killer track, which also features D-Sisive, Timbuktu & DJ Grouch, but this video certainly completes the package. It might be the crisp, black & white, Eraserhead-inspired visuals, or maybe it’s just [...]
Well it seems I’ve arrived at Monday’s end without posting my tradition Old School Hip Hop jam (well, I’d traditionally been doing multi-song OSM posts for years, but for various reasons I’ve recently switched this to one old school jam per Monday. Here’s to new traditions!), but D-Sisive’s going to save my bacon this time around.
D recently got word of his 3rd Juno nomination, for Jonestown 2, along with Classified, Drake, Kardinal, and Swollen Members. Well as you might expect, this called for a celebration, and D celebrated in the studio creating a couple tracks with Muneshine behind the boards. One of those songs is a hijacking of Naughty By Nature’s Ghetto Bastard. Why, you ask? Simple: “Ghetto Bastard is one of my favourite songs of all time. Naughty By Nature is one of my favourite groups.” Works for me.

I don’t write about compilations much on the hill, but when I do, I prefer they be from Urbnet. Ha, I just most interesting-man-in-the-world’d you, and you didn’t see it coming, so well done me, very current reference there for sure. But seriously, I’ve said this before and I’ll keep on saying it, if you’re [...]
Urbnet is a label I’ve always had a lot of time for. This is due to the fact they’ve always tried to fight the good fight as far as hip hop and progressive electronic/urban type music is concerned. As an example, earlier this year I posted on Emay and mentioned that I thought he [...]
Video Hits is back! It’s been a few weeks since we’ve hit you off with our Thursday dose of hot Canadian video content, but on the bright side, the downtime has allowed for us to amass a stack of great vids to choose from. As it turns out, a number of those videos are from [...]
Dance sucka! D-Sisive’s latest hijacking ganks some Deadmua5 sounds to make the club jump.

Good news: D-Sisive has finally made it. Well, this isn’t entirely true, as he makes perfectly clear on his latest record, the rather amazing Jonestown 2: Jimmy Go Bye Bye, he has yet to garner the kind of mainstream accolades he feels his body of work warrants (especially in the US of A), and he’s [...]
I have to say, I do enjoy having a guess at the meaning behind things like songs & album titles, even though I am rarely correct. If I were to hazard a guess at the intent behind Vancouver hip hop collective Sweatshop Union naming their new EP The Bill Murray EP it would be some [...]
Larger Then Life is a new 8 song EP from Toronto (via Saskatoon) MC Muneshine (aka Rob Bakker) that features production from Dutch producers Vinyl Frontiers. It’s also damn good and likely the best Canadian hip hop release so far this year. I’ve definitely been a fan of Muneshine’s work over the last few [...]
We mentioned the CBC Radio 3 Searchlight Contest, which is looking for Canada’s best music website, a couple weeks ago, but yesterday they cut it down to the top 30, and we very pleased to see that we made the cut. Things are getting serious now, some pretty high-profile & high-quality sites have been eliminated, [...]
