NEW VIDEO: Daniel Caeser – Won’t Live Here (Live on q)

rez | Music | Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Daniel Caeser drops in to the q studios for a live performance of “Won’t Live Here”. Also see below for a short interview:

There’s been a gradual groundswell of attention surrounding Oshawa’s Daniel Caesar, but even though the R&B singer has been touted as the next big thing to come out of Canada, Caesar isn’t letting the hype get to him. 

“I feel like once I start believing that, that will mess me up,” he admits. “I smile, nod and just try to write.” 

Caesar, who left the “lonely feeling” of the suburbs now resides in Toronto where he’s been able to build up his performing skills playing sold out shows and festival stages, promoting his critically-acclaimed 2015 EP, Pilgrim’s Paradise. “I went from a lot of restrictions to just absolute freedom when I moved out here,” he adds.

And while he has talked at length about his strict upbringing under his parents’ roof, which included attending church every week, he does credit his parents for the person he is today.

“My parents, they loved me and they had their view of how one should live their life; they had a very streamlined view of the world as good and evil,” he explains. “I’ve grown and realized that things are a little more complex than that […] But I’m thankful because I’m here because of that friction we had.”   

Canadian R&B’s next big star, Oshawa’s Daniel Caesar, performs his hauntingly captivating single, Won’t Live Here, live in studio q.

q is a magazine show that’s unpredictable in the best sense – proud to be “a wild mix of culture by way of Canada” as described by the New York Times. The Globe & Mail noted the show’s “raging popularity across a variety of platforms — podcasts, television, websites, satellite radio, terrestrial radio, and occasional live remote broadcasts.”

So Zaki is re-releasing her first album, SHO (iqra in orange) (2006), for the first time digitally and also on special edition vinyl (dope!!!) and in the process of digging up the master tracks she just happened to find this little gem. A remix of one of the songs from Sho, “Take a Stand”. Gawgeous dahling, gawgeous.

And be sure to check out the GoFundMe below…

This remix of Take a Stand by Nick Holder and Martino Lozej was recently found on a hard drive. Track written in 2006 by Zaki Ibrahim and Mike Jansen. Original song from Sho (iqra in orange)

Sho Original Artwork : Bryan Espirutu

Sho is available for the first time digitally and on special edition vinyl only through my Go Fund Me campaign www.gofundme.com/zaki2017

PS. Today I posted ‘Take a Stand’ on Soundcloud. It was one of the first songs I ever wrote (with Mike Jansen) and still gives me all the feels. This remix by Nick Holder was done a decade ago and was recently found.
Fresh Stilll.

Another one from The Come Up Show. Rochester and Chedo chop it up nice…

For this week’s interview, we have Toronto-based rapper Rochester aka Juice as our guest. Rochester has appeared on tour with A-list artists such as Kanye West, Chris Brown, and Snoop Dogg.

His debut street single “Boost” featuring Hooks (produced by Dzy, Dej Loaf, Kevin Gates, Little Simz, $ha) has reached number six on Apple Music’s “Hot in the Six” chart, following artists like Drake, Tory Lanez, and Roy Woods. Rochester has recently reconnected with Grammy Award-winning producer Boi 1da on his new single and video “Grateful.”

I talked to Rochester about how he got involved with Hip Hop, his collaboration with Boi-1da, and the challenges he faced on the road that led him to where he is now.

Each and every Wednesday we’ll be uploading a brand new interview with a guest we feel that you should know about. If you love podcasts subscribe at the options below.
