Quick Hitters:: Wordburglar & The Dirty Sample

It's Tuesday, I'm back from a 4 day weekend, and as the Ack mentioned earlier today, the record pool here on the hill is a little shallow. So what to post? Well after enjoying The Les Kils EP from Backburner crew members More Or Les & Fresh Kils last week, I thought I'd pass along some more Backburner news, this time from Haligonian and king of the humorous one-liner: Wordburglar.

It seems SJ is heading out on the road for a series of shows across the Eastern portion of Canada. There will be plenty of Backburner representation accompanying him, with Jesse Dangerously, Toolshed & Fresh Kils also playing each show, and they'll be joined by special guests at each show. Pretty solid chance to see some quality Canadian hip hop live and in person, so check the dates below and check them out in your town.

MP3:: Wordburglar - End Smartly (The Dirty Sample Remix)

Now that I've posted two songs from the album, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Beauty & Poison from Calgary producer The Dirty Sample. As a teaser for a new remix album he's releasing later on this summer, TDS has teamed up with the good folks at Hand'Solo to give away a completely different remix album featuring plenty of Canadian talent:

A new remix album is on deck for Hand’Solo Records, with Calgary, Alberta producer The Dirty Sample remixing a great selection of songs from rappers in Canada, the U.S., the U.K. and Japan. In order to celebrate the upcoming (summer) release of Joshua’s Dreamixes, Hand’Solo Records and The Dirty Sample (through his Work Turkey label and production company) is offering up this little promo album, Beauty & Poison, as a free download. It features 18 remixes that are 100% completely different from those found on Joshua’s Dreamixes. Download it now. You won’t be disappointed!

It is indeed good stuff, both the jazzy Wordburlgar jam above and the More Or Les song I posted with the Les Kils review sound great, and check out the songs below - Going Out On A Highnote is a fantastic Canadian posse cut with a prototypical posse cut beat. So no need to delay, go ahead and get your free copy of Beauty & Poison.

MP3:: Toolshed - Wookie Boots (Dirty Sample Remix)

MP3::Addvice - Going Out On A High Note f. Cadence Weapon, Touch, Stray, Chris Plus & Chazmo (Dirty Sample Remix)
