rez | Music | Wednesday, May 8th, 2013


Really dope intro to a new artist named allie. Shouts to Javid and the 185augusta artist collective for putting me on. Look for the official music video coming soon. And not “coming soon” in like a rapper kinda way. But in a music-video-release-party-May-22nd-at-185-Augusta kinda way. Peep the FB page for all the info.

185 Augusta and crew invite you to come view “CROSS MY MIND”, the first Music Video by singer-songwriter allie.

This official Video Release Party will be a one night only event. We invite you to be the first to experience and celebrate this artistic piece before it is released worldwide. 

As 185 buzzes with preparations, guests can anticipate a night filled with art, positive talks and live music performed by allie, and backed by producer 2ND SON. 

About the Artist:
With a natural propensity for mixing styles and creating an atmosphere that engulfs whoever steps into her music, allie has created a sound all her own. Her voice is imposing yet sweet, raspy and deep. Drawing inspiration from new and old genres, allie makes each song personal. Some of the subjects are simple; some are complex. She is a woman expressing her world and letting her art speak for itself. 

It is with great pride that we bring you a visual & sonic introduction to this artist’s work :

WHEN: May 22nd, 2013 | 7:30pm – 00:00

Leading up to his gig at The Big Ticket this Friday night Junia chops it up with Urbanology about what he’s been up to and all that good stuff.

Junia-T, one half of the renowned Toronto hip-hop duo Smash Brovaz, has taken on a new serious role as a producer lately and is making noise with his distinct smooth sound. The multi-talented Sauga spitter is set to headline this month’s Big Ticket, Toronto’s premier hip-hop monthly event, to show the city what he’s been working on.

YOU’VE BEEN BUSY. TELL US WHAT YOU’VE BEEN UP TO LATELY? The Smash Brovaz album release was a success. It’s still growing across the world. We’re just gearing up for new music for the rest of the year. Aside from that, me as a producer, that is my focus for this year. I’ve been blessed to have a lot of music come out this year that is produced by me. So far, Veronica Domingues’ album is coming out, which is produced all by me, it’s actually an EP. It’s called Just Chill… I’ve really been connecting with dudes on the come up and dudes that are really doing it, which is exciting, to be a part of the beginning phases of that.

WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO TAKE THE ROLE AS THE PRODUCER? I’ve always been producing. I’ve been producing since the first Smash Brovaz album came out like eight years ago. I spent so much time sharpening the performance skills, the writing skills, I was always progressively producing, but I never made myself available as a producer and I feel like I missed out on opportunities to work with some people in the past, because I didn’t really step forward with it… I went to LA and got to really play my music out there and that’s where my eyes really opened. Just seeing their reaction to my style, because I have a very distinct sound in terms of what I prefer to create. As much as there are modern trends in music, it may mildly influence where I’m at creatively, but it doesn’t take away from what my production style is. I was really happy to see people react in a positive way to what I naturally create.

NEW MUSIC: The Soul Motivators – The Soul Motivators EP

rez | Music | Tuesday, May 7th, 2013


If you didn’t already know, Toronto has a CRAZY history when it comes to Funk. George Clinton LIVED here when he basically discovered it and luminaries like Rick James called Toronto home. Anyways…the Funk lives on through 9-member collective The Soul Motivators. Here’s their debut EP.

Here to restore Toronto’s faith in funk – it’s The Soul Motivators.

Together for just over two years, these eight funk brothers – and one soul sister -have crafted a slick, hi-energy show guaranteed to get you on the dance floor. Moving crowds at festivals, theatres and clubs across Ontario and Quebec, they received airplay on national and college radio.

After unprecedented hype, their debut EP dropped in March 2013.

To kick-off another summer of rare grooves, 70s funk and authentic soul, the band host this special event not to be missed… Expect a hot n’ gritty night of familiar favourites, rarities and new exclusives – alongside some very special guests:

Opening the night is Babalao Stereo Club. Their fusion of heart-thumping beats and Latin-infused rhythms make them a stand-out band on the Toronto scene. With their 2011 album, ‘The Latin Bang Theory’, these guys proved they can get a party started!

And spinning throughout the evening is legendary Toronto DJ, Paul E. Lopes. His eclectic blend of nu-jazz, soul, funk, house and reggae will provide the perfect backdrop to this hi-octane event.

Listen to original music from the new EP, including a free download of the track Gravy Train, and get to know the Soul Motivators at:
