NEW VIDEO: Zaki Ibrahim “Moving Bodies” (Directed by Ebrahim Hajee)

Ty Harper | Music,Video | Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

Directed by Ebrahim Hajee.

New Zaki visuals as we await her upcoming project.

Music by Zaki Ibrahim and Maramza
Words and Concept by Heather Thompson and Zaki Ibrahim

The EP is a spiral body of music that tells a love story of twin stars. It was inspired by the key-stone song, ‘Binary’, from the full length record. The story manifested from a writing collaboration between Zaki and Heather Thompson (aka Lady Venom) and a bank of beat compositions from Maramza in South Africa. The collaboration subsequently occurred on two continents, as Casey MQ, another beat maker, composer & writer from Brampton, Canada was pulled into the fold. I decided to release this film on the full moon August 7th…as a small, subtle celebration of abundance and realness..The song is about a dance of twin stars, as if they were fish…spiral in the wake of each others’ lateral lines..pores open, our skin is sound… The binary star system moves in the same dance.

The video itself is a one take. Filmed in Cape Town on the M1 at midnight.. Myself and Ebrahim Hajee decided to do this thing.

Thanks for watching.

NEW MUSIC: NINETYFOUR – Run It Up

rez | Music | Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

ScreenHunter_275 Aug. 07 15.29

Some new new out of Vancity. Dude’s Scarborough-born tho!

NINETYFOUR releases the third track off of his Spree Boy Series titled “Run It Up”

Mixed & Mastered by Araz Namavar.

Born in Scarborough, Ontario and coming from Jamaican and West Indian backgrounds, Tevin Douglas- known as ninetyfour – was influenced by the heavy rhythmic reggae, dancehall and R&B from his upbringing. Drawing comparisons to fellow Greater Toronto Area success stories Roy Wood$, PartyNextDoor and Tory Lanez – as well as US upstarts Bryson Tiller, 24hrs & Ye Ali – the burgeoning crooner remains true to the influences of his upbringing while adding in his own absorbing appeal to the modern slow jam. With his debut project It’s Yours, beign featured on Complex, Noisey, Montreality, Boi-1da.net and Hip Hop Canada, as well as his single “Off That” peaking at #23 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 chart in the short time since it’s release in December, the future is bright for ninetyfour.

INTERVIEW: Merna w/ The Come Up Show

rez | Interviews | Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

ScreenHunter_275 Aug. 07 17.17

Description says it all!

My special guest is Palestinian born and Toronto-based singer/songwriter Merna (formerly known as Ayah). I’ve been a fan of her music for a long time, which is why when she released a new record, Sans, I had to have her on the podcast to talk about the project and her journey in music.

Merna talked about the decisions she made on how she’s approaching her music, why it’s not about ego anymore-it’s just about sharing. The distinction she has made separating music as a business and music as a form of expression. We went back to her origins and she takes us through her upbringing, what it was like moving between Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Seattle, Toronto and how that shaped her. Merna also takes us through the timeline of her career, what it was like to work with DJ Jazzy Jeff, how she approaches fear and so much more.

Without further ado, Merna on The Come Up Show Podcast.

Each and every Wednesday we’ll be uploading a brand new interview with a guest we feel that you should know about. If you love podcasts subscribe at the options below.
