NEW VIDEO: Grandfather Mantis “One Hundred Years”

Grandfather Mantis presents his new video, “One Hundred Years”, a graphic account of the travesties of the last hundred years told from the perspective of an angry god.

“As Grandfather Mantis, I am an emcee who uses my love of word play and cadence as an outlet to express what I see and experience in the physical realm where I dwell.

I have a strong affinity with the classic novelists, especially the vivid imagery of the science fiction masters.

For me personally, Hip Hop is a form of expression that is more complete than either simply singing or writing, since it allows me to channel not only my thoughts but emotions into a cohesive piece of music.

I have a strong desire to continue the tradition of thought-provoking lyricism, and also a deep love for the repetitive drive of a good beat. Ultimately, its a part of my life I cannot live without.”

Grandfather Mantis has worked with Toronto artist such as St. Peter, Muneshine, DJ ZForbes and DJ Grouch.

With his live band, The Shadow Monks, he has played at many of Toronto’s premiere venues including Lee’s Palace, The SIlver Dollar, El Mocambo, and The Opera House.

In 2010, Grandfather Mantis and the Shadow Monks released their self-titled debut EP. They are currently set to enter the studio in January to record new material.

Grandfather Mantis’ music can be found in the following digital venues: – Video for “One Hundred Years” – Audio for “One Hundred Years”

NEW VIDEO: Yuri Koller “The Big Bang Theory Theme” (R&B Version)

Ty Harper | Music,Video | Friday, December 21st, 2012

Shout out to Yuri on his remix grind tho!

With this rendition, I wanted to embody the many things that this time of this specific year has to offer, which includes christmas, feel good music, astrology, and supposedly the beginning of the end of the world all rolled into one. So I decided to do my own R&B rendition of the hit TV show “The Big Bang Theory” which I sang and produced myself. I also thought to myself “how can I make a video to this?” and then as I was learning the motion graphics program “after effects” to create my own logo, I got the idea that I should just create a full on motion graphics lyrics video which takes place in space. It only makes sense right? So for the past couple weeks I’d been studying the program and researching information on the universe and this is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

NEW VIDEO: More Or Les “Big Sugar”

Ty Harper | Music,Video | Thursday, December 20th, 2012

The latest appearance since the amazingly hilarious “Rhyme O’Clock” video with the Wordburglar, Toronto rapper More Or Les gets serious with “Big Sugar”, the first video from his 2012 album “Mastication.” Drawing from the documentary of the same name, this song explores the dark history and modern power of the world’s reigning sugar cartels, and our relation to refined sugar as we continue to over-consume it in post-industrial First World nations. Filmed at the “Museum of Indulgence” exhibition at Harbourfront Centre, this video features original sugar-based art work from Montreal artist Shelley Miller —
