NEW VIDEO: Xolisa “A Beautiful Mind” (Performance Video)

Ty Harper | Audio,Music,Video | Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

Nice.

On December 4th, 2013, Toronto emcee and producer, Xolisa, dropped her debut-self produced EP entitled, “A Beautiful Mind”.

Fast forward to the present day, as the Canadian native is preparing to bring to her city her first solo show on April 10th, named after the EP’s last track, “A Beautiful Moment”, the emcee drops the first set of visuals to accompany the project.

As a collaboration project with Urban Evolution Entertainment’s, “YYZ Hilightz”, as a part of their “Innovators of Culture” March series, Xolisa brings to us an up close and extremely personal a cappella performance of the EP’s first single,“A Beautiful Mind”, which stands as a powerful introduction to the song’s official music video, which also drops in April (shot, directed and edited by Erik Flowchild).

Be sure to watch the full YYZ Hilightz, “Up Close-History Makers” interview with Xolisa and Jemelle Williams, as she opens up and speaks on the process behind the EP’s creation as well as her personal growth and identity as an artist.

NEW MUSIC: Shaun Boothe – I Don’t Like To (Lost Verse)

rez | Music | Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

Boothe digs in the crates and discovers a verse circa 2008 that was supposed to be part of a now-never-released-remix to Shad’s now-Megacity-Classic “I Don’t Like To”. Noice.

The homie Shad reached out to jump on a remix to his single ‘I Don’t Like To’ off his 2nd album back in ’08. I think there were other artists who were supposed to be on it too. Never came together tho. Digging thru old hard drives I came across the verse I sent him. Produced by Mantis. Still love this beat!

NEW MUSIC: Pluto – Jessica EP

rez | Music | Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

Jessica-EP-Cover

Intro to a new singer named Pluto. Don’t quite understand why the Soundcloud only has snippets (below) when there’s also a free download of the complete songs via the website. Anyways…”Heart Speak” is sounding kinda proper right about now.

p.s. Dude’s only 19.

The melodic sound of Pluto’s first single entitled ‘Heart Speak” is simply a tale of emotional expression that may only be felt deep within the heart. This ‘life to pen” (real-time story) new age rhythm & blues song showcases the feelings of curiosity, excitement, passion and romance with a pinch of uncertainty.

Which are common feelings when becoming romantically involved with another person, thus revealing what goes on during the courting process form a males perspective.
