NEW MUSIC: Submotion Orchestra “Blind Spot” (Sol X Remix)

Ty Harper | Audio,Music | Friday, May 24th, 2013



As Toronto producer Sol X prepares for his forthcoming EP Dark Lights, he has released a loose single not featured on the project called “Blind Spot (Solmix)” 

Sampling “Blind Spot” by the Submotion Orchestra, a 7-piece band from Leeds, England, Sol X has streamlined the track into a euphoric production, filled with heavy synths and warm keys. Influenced by jazz, dubstep and soul, Sol X has transitioned the original song into a refreshing cut for warm nights and dark lights.

Expect the Dark Lights EP to be released later this year.

NEWS: Manifesto Festival – Call for Visual Arts Submissions

Ty Harper | Artwork,Community,Events | Friday, May 24th, 2013


Call For Visual Arts Submissions

With changing times on the horizon so much has happened within all of us on either a individual level or as a collective whole. Whether we’ve faced personal transformations through our daily lives, or we’ve used our art as a form of expression or messaging, we’ve witness some sort of shift. Some of us may have identified with others to create collaborative change or put our efforts in areas we saw fit so we could redefine our truths and beliefs. Whatever that shift has been, we are now becoming more aware of this energy.

This year for the 7th Annual Manifesto Art Show we will explore the notions of connectedness and evolution as we present thought-provoking works from local artists as well as game-changers from across the globe.

“Everything in our world is sacred and interconnected – and we’re in the midst of an epochal shift to recognizing that truth in every realm of human endeavor.” – Stephen Dinan.

INTERVIEW: Shi Wisdom w/ NOW Magazine

rez | Interviews | Thursday, May 23rd, 2013


Shi chops it up with NOW in preparation for her performance tomorrow night. Bom bom.

The Billboard charts are full of superstars who started out writing hits for other people: Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Lady Gaga. We perceive their transition into the spotlight as a promotion, and the end goal. But Toronto neo-soul singer Shi Wisdom sees it differently. 

“For me, becoming an established writer is more of a priority than becoming a performer,” says Wisdom, born Renee Wisdom. “I will always perform and sing. But that in itself [doesn’t guarantee] longevity. It’s not easy to stay relevant in the scene for many years as a performer, whereas writing is a gift that stays with you.”

So far, she’s doing okay. As well as penning her own songs, Wisdom co-wrote Roc Nation star Rita Ora’s debut single, R.I.P., with fellow Torontonian Drake.

But it’s her rich, versatile singing – part laid-back Erykah Badu, part rolling Beyoncé trill (two artists she’s covered), part edgy je ne sais quoi in her lower register – that’s made her a sought-after headliner.

Wisdom was first an opener at The Known Unknown, a music series started five years ago in the small Bloor and Ossington club Lambadina by Tika Simone. Recognizing the need to spotlight local urban artists, Simone originally called it Intimate & Interactive and intended to perform herself before realizing her calling was showcasing others.

New MC Tru Lyrikks drops some knowledge in an early 90’s type a way. Not mad. Always dope to know that there’s under 20 MCs out there that remain pure in artform and message. With all the songs about money, drugs and b*tches out there it’s so easy to fall out of love with this whole thing. Consider this the intro.
