NEW MUSIC: JR Mint – Keep It Playa feat. Boogz Boogetz

rez | Music | Wednesday, August 21st, 2013


Another nice new joint from Minty. Push for his new project sounding nice so far…

Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Mats Anderson, aka “Minty,” has spent the last several years honing his craft and developing an enthusiastic global fan-base. Minty is definitely making his mark as an up-and-coming artist to watch. Proving his dedication to his craft, Minty established his own recording studio, Belvia Sound, which has quickly become one of the more respected studios in Toronto. Artists such as Drake, P Reign, Raekwon, Sean Price, Slaughterhouse, French Montana, Waka Flocka, Kardinal Official and Travis Porter have all recorded at Mint’s Belvia Sound.

Introduced to the hip-hop world as the winner of the 2007 Mic 4 Your Life Battle hosted by Mad Linx of BET, Minty has since released four projects in the last four years: Magnificent Road, ’09; Red, White & Green, ’10; and Canadian Mint, ’11, which was his most well-received release to date includes features and production from artists including Smoke DZA, Freck Billionaire, Emilio Rojas, MoSS, and MPhazes.

His mixtape, The Vacation, was released in 2012. Minty has also opened up for acts including Young Money, The Roots, Jay Electronica, Smoke DZA, Down with Webster, Black Thought and BIG K.R.I.T. Taking his career to the next level, Minty has now teamed up with Cinematic Music Group A&R Gully on his newest project, “The Golden Ticket,” which is set to drop Fall 2013, and includes production from Chase N Cashe, Arthur McArthur, Wondagurl, Rich Kidd, Showboiz and more.


NEW VIDEO: Eklipz – Here We Go Again (Round & Round)

rez | Video | Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Some nostalgic reflective newness from the homie Eklipz (from the mighty Crown A’ Thornz crew).

Just checking through Facebook and I clicked on an instrumental track by 1988 a producer from around the way, and I was really liking the vibe of the track so I started writing right away, brought the joint over to my Lil Bro EJ Grant of the Bosquiat Clique and did a quick recording, and shot a video for it with the help of my Sunz. I put a little more chops into the edits in post and messed around with griming up the footage, all shot with the Canon 5D and edited in Final Cut Pro 7 and After effect CS5. Truly we have no excuses for not pushing the artistic envelope and putting more content into the realm. Mostly everyone has a cell phone with cameras and video and a program on their phone to be able to cut something together. Hip Hop was created out of basic elements and is now a global phenomenon, Chose your tools and build something of Merit.

NEW MUSIC: Adria Kain “Identity EP”

Ty Harper | Album,Audio,Music | Monday, August 19th, 2013


Adria Kain drops her second EP “Identity” - and picking up on the sickness of the first one, it’s a solid follow up argument for anyone not already paying attention to this new artist, to start…. with the quickness.

Its Beautiful…

Having the ability to identify what certain things within existence of your own life mean to you. I’ve become advertent towards the situations that kept me away for so long. I took the time to write out these stories and sing pictures into the minds & ears of the listening world. These tender moments that lay still within my mind, these songs I let spill out of my soul to make sublime recordings, are my way of releasing all of these vast yet simple thoughts. Some may say they’re just feelings…. I call it my IDENTITY.

Love, Kain.

NEW VIDEO: Chloe Charles “Break The Balance”

Ty Harper | Music,Video | Monday, August 19th, 2013

1st introduction to Chloe Charles – a singer, writer and guitarist that’s been making waves for a minute but just happened on our radar more recently thanks to mentions from mans like Wan, ladies like Tika, and a random follow from Charles herself on my twitter account. This is her latest video, and title track to her latest album, but definitely hit her at to get on board with her movement if you haven’t already been on it.


NEW VIDEO: Wayna “I Don’t Wanna Wait” (Directed by Chris Muir)

Ty Harper | Audio,Music,Video | Monday, August 19th, 2013

Directed by Chris Muir.

Yes, yes, I’m well aware that Wayna isn’t Canadian, but the video’s director, producer (Addis Embiyalow and Kate Fraser), editor (La Pointe), and I’m pretty sure many of its cast and crew ( Nabil Shash, whatup Z!) are from Toronto, and it looks like it’s shot in Regent Park (??)…. aaand it helps that it’s a dope record!

Shot in Toronto by acclaimed director Chris Muir, the video for “I Don’t Wanna Wait” tells the story of an all-girl baseball team, who faces the challenge of a rival squad and creates a lasting, triumphant memory. The team, also called “the Expats” hail from various parts of the world — girls, bravely playing an iconic American sport and lending theirs to the conventional image of being American.

“I Don’t Wanna Wait” is the new single from Grammy-nominated, Ethiopian singer/songwriter, Wayna. A sonic blend of Bob Marley, Motown, and golden-era Hip Hop, the song is about embracing life and not living on the sidelines. Produced by German beat maker, FARHOT (also known for his work with Nneka), “I Don’t Wanna Wait” is featured on Wayna’s highly-anticipated EP, “the Expats,” named after the diverse group of international musicians and producers who worked on the project. “the Expats” will be released this Fall 2013.
