NEW VIDEO: Vice presents: Rich Kidd x Mac DeMarco x Kevin Drew x Tommy Kruise – “Trippin Out” (Trailer)

Ty Harper | Music | Saturday, October 11th, 2014


This past summer, we were traveling all around Canada with Mac DeMarco, Kevin Drew, Tommy Kruise, and Rich Kidd, to produce our newest series: Tripping Out. We took Mac to Dawson City, Yukon; Kevin to Banff, Alberta; Rich Kidd to Iqaluit, Nunavut; and Tommy to St. John’s, Newfoundland. In each episode, our hosts embed themselves in the arts community to meet bands, throat singers, DJs, painters, and anyone else who fits the bill of being awesome and creative in Canada to get a real sense of the local arts scene. At the end of it all, they play a show, and we were there to document the whole journey.

Check out Episode 1, featuring Mac Demarco, airing on October 15th. And thank you to our friends at Arts & Crafts, Field Trip, as well as FACTOR, for making it all happen.

NEW VIDEO: Shad (Interview w/ KUBE 93)

Ty Harper | Interviews,Music,Video | Tuesday, October 7th, 2014


One of the best writers in hip-hop, Shad, visited KUBE 93’s Sunday Night Sound Session in Seattle on 6/11/14 to speak with DJ Hyphen and J. Moore. They discussed a variety of topics, exploring what it’s like coming up in Canada making his style of music, winning the Rap Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) over his countryman Drake, and how he chooses to promote himself in the US market. He also spoke about his last album, “Flying Colours,” and his plans to take the follow up project in a new direction, before running through a lightning round of questions covering 90’s sit-coms, left handed basketball players, his favorite sneakers, and more.

Drew Howard of the “Get Home Safe” crew (with Jazz Cartier & Derek Wise) drops visuals for “Uncle Tona” off his upcoming “Drive, The Valley of Dissipation” EP.

Would love to know the background on the Tona reference tho… cuz from my vantage point it’s kinda like a BK artist doing a song called Uncle Jeru.

NEW MUSIC: Kayo “With You” (Remix)

Ty Harper | Audio,Music | Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Last month, Kayo released a free remix of the Stwo x Lido collab, ‘LOST’. The track was released on September 6ix, as a celebration of his fans on his birthday. Kayo has now decided to release another free joint for the fans, this time on October 6ix (See what’s happening here?)

Kayo offers his interpretation over yet another Stwo production, this time off his recent Instrumental EP, 92. The track is entitled ‘With You’, and is pretty self explanatory once you listen.
