NEW VIDEO: Chart Attack presents: “Making A Scene – Two Visions of Music In Toronto

Ty Harper | Community,Documentary,Music,Video | Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

The folks over at Chart Attack deliver a great little perspective piece on Toronto aka T-dot aka Taurana aka The Mega aka Tha 6, featuring KJ, DJ Bambii and Devon Little.

Toronto is a city with passionate, creative people pushing their art to exciting new places. But is that always enough? For Making A Scene, Chart Attack’s new short documentary, we spoke with representatives of two musical communities making waves, and got into what it means to truly have the city on your back.

The success of Drake has brought the 6’s hip-hop scene an unprecedented level international recognition. Emerging MC Keita Juma and Devon Little, photographer behind the portrait series Toronto Rap (displaying at tonight’s Long Winter event), talk to us about the newfound sense of pride and vigour the city’s hip-hop community has found. But as DJ Bambii tells us, younger movements and nightlife, like her group of indie electro producers and DJs, are being met with resistance. Making A Scene is the beginnings of a conversation on creating true diversity, embracing culture without cues from other countries, and giving new communities a chance to build.
