The track “Mingus Clap” is a nod to the late, great Charles Mingus. The prominent vocal chant is reminiscent of spiritual Jazz, over an infectious, hypnotic clap groove. The raw, textured black and white footage captures the emotional landscape of the music. Jai Nitai Lotus’ last line sums up the song with “Musically a masterpiece, feeling like I mastered peace, Peace!”
This is the first video single off Jai Nitai Lotus’ album titled “Something You Feel” dropping Nov 6th.
Song written and produced by Jai Nitai Lotus

The Come Up Show was asked to host the First Look Cypher at the 6th annual Manifesto this year. To those who don’t know the First Look Cypher consists of emcees that are up and coming in the Hip-Hop scene and making a name from themselves, it’s makes sense The Come Up Show presented this segment right? This year the cypher included emcees Casper, Ashton Martin, and Dante Leon. Each emcee got approximately 30 seconds for the first round of cypher, then got to perform their own original song for a minute, and then we ended it with a quick round of cyphers. Hosted by yours truly, J.R. and our good friend DJ Doubledown on the tables.
If you were present at the 6th annual Manifesto a couple of weeks ago you would have caught the amazing performance by Maestro Fresh Wes. All suited up in Royal Canadian Mountie Police uniform with two back up dancers it was definitely a fresh idea and entertaining to see. In this video you will see an acapella performance of Black Trudeau. Wes then switches it up to the classic Drop The Needle.
Marina Boy TV was invited to the “Who Got Next” Artist Showcase last month @ the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Toronto. It was a night of celebrating local talent and showcasing their music for some of the industries biggest names including the senior VP of Island Def Jam Records, Max Gousse.
The Leadertape No. 02 AJ Saudin. A Shane Stirling Film. The Leadertape comes from my passion for storytelling. Not of fantasy, or of mythology, but of reality and the truth of the moment. Painting a picture through the senses to bring forth a vivid connection to the people, places and things that inspire me. My medium has changed from pencil and pad, to paint and canvas to pixel and screen, but the motivation has always been the same; to capture the moment forever. The participants of ‘The Leadertape’ I believe to be leaders. Leaders of thought, art and culture. My path has crossed with these people at various points in our journey and I want to share with you their stories so that you to can cross paths with theirs. Moving Pictures. Moving Personalities.
AJ is best known as “Connor” from “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” He plays a young man with Aspergers Syndrome, a disorder within the autistic spectrum. The empathy that he brings to this role is one that carries over to his real life. The honesty, passion & kindness AJ exudes is one that hits you to your core. He’s the kind of young man I hope my 8 year old son grows up to be like; although he is quiet by nature, his sincerity is evident in his passing glances.
Just a remix I felt like doing (which is a mixture of Camp Lo’s song “Luchini” & Angie Stone’s “Lover’s Ghetto”) before the release of my upcoming free project entitled “Open Doors” with 10 new original songs.
