More accompanying visuals for NY emcee Mad Dukez’s collaborative EP with producer Fresh Kils.

DTR proudly presents Mad Dukez and Fresh Kils – hot off their globe trotting Repeat Offenders Tour – in the appropriately timed visual for their latest single, World Wide. Take a journey with Dukez and Kils to Vienna, Amsterdam, Prague, Paris and even a little bit of Texas as they rock crowds the globe over.

Editor Tim Cielinski asked Mad Dukez and Fresh Kils how it felt to play so many stages all over the planet:

Dukez: “Being on tour in both Europe and across the United States was an experience of a lifetime. All of the people we met were extremely respectful to us and our music. It was an amazing feeling because we were able to tell that they cared about us. We felt welcomed, we gained a ton of new fans and supporters of our music.”

Kils: “The video is essentially us manifesting our destiny, taking our art to the world. Even though we conceived that song while we were in the studio back in America, we were sure that it was gonna take us somewhere, and the video is a real testament to that.”

INTERVIEW: Junia-T (w/ IXclusive)

Ty Harper | Interviews,Music | Friday, October 3rd, 2014

Junia-T 789

Nice one!

Hailing from the very #outchea suburb known as Mississauga, Ontario, Junia-T has been a mainstay in the pre-Drake Toronto hip-hop scene as a rapper and producer. Sonically, this mad scientist uses his wits to carve a lane that’s more of a riff on Toronto’s past rather than conforming to the turnt-up anthems of his contemporaries. Having recently collaborated with artists across the pond like Little Simz, Junia-T is becoming an international name while still staying close to his roots by working with Toronto pioneers Rich Kidd and Slakah the Beatchild. Without a doubt, Junia-T is working 24/7 to keep the soul in the Six. We caught up with him at Toronto’s infamous Yonge-Dundas Square for a blunt and a history lesson.

IX: Alright man, let’s start this up! What is the first album [of somebody else’s music] that changed your life? What did it do to change you?

I would say it was the first Black Star album. Like at the time, I was still young, just writing about whatever, you know what I mean? ‘Cus I just liked to rap, I didn’t really put two and two together as far as like expressing my life into music, you know what I mean? So I was rapping a whole bunch of shit I wasn’t living until I heard that album. And that album kind of gave me the confidence to rap about my life ‘cus I was younger at the time, I was in high school. And at my school, we had like a big cypher all the time, you know what I mean? And I was like one of the LONE dudes that’s bumping like J-Live, Cannibal Ox, like Def Jux and all that stuff, you know what I mean? And everybody else is bumping like the brand new [DJ] Kay Slay mixtape, Fabolous, like Red Cafe, you know what I mean? So it was good, that was the album that allowed me to be that underground rapper and still feel superior to whatever their opinions were, you know what I mean? [sparks blunt]

IX: As a producer and a beatmaker, what is your process…

Security guard: You can’t smoke that here, man.

Ahh really?! Let’s go for a walk.

Security guard: Yea, you guys can go for a walk, go across the street, come back, no problem. You just can’t smoke on the Square. Thanks guys!

IX: Thank you! Thank you for not being the cops!

I don’t even sweat it, I smoke always. Smoking that loud! 

IX: So as a producer, beatmaker, do you try to use more like hardware or software, like what’s your shit? What kind of programs do you use?

I’d say it starts with software. I started with Fruity Loops back in my high school days. That was the first thing that we could get our hands on so I rocked with that for a couple of years. Then I just felt the importance of needing to learn how to use gear, you know what I mean? So I bought an [Akai] MPC1000 so I ran with that for a bit, it was cool, but I still prefer software. Fruity Loops, Ableton, my laptop and a controller, you know what I mean? Like it’s all in my bag right now, I travel with all that shit. [I make a lot of] sample-based stuff, I play a lot of stuff plus I got like musicians at my access so whenever I have a sample of some sort that I want redone…

NEW MUSIC: KEMI “Usher Raymond” (Prod. KEMI)

Ty Harper | Audio,Music | Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

New name, new sounds, new EP!

KEMI, the artist/producer formerly known as KemiKAL, unveils the first single leading up to the release of his forthcoming EP (Title TBA). The self-produced project is to be one of his most critical creations yet.

The song “Usher Raymond” touches on how artists allow the thoughts and opinions of the industry – as well as the critics – to force them into limiting “boxes” and expectations. KEMI’s experiences in the game have shown him that the only true path to success is one he creates on his own –one that he paved and will continue to trek.

Keep an eye out for KEMI as he “Ushers in this new era”.
