Beloved Guyanese-born, Winnipeg-raised, and Toronto-based artist and host of CBC Radio 2’s Afterdark Odario debuts a bumpin’ new track today titled “Low Light (In This Space)” from his upcoming solo EP Good Morning, Hunter slated for release this May via Do Right Music.
The tracks features Vancouver gospel singer Dawn Pemberton.
Ottawa has a burgeoning rap and hip-hop scene.
With acts like Night Lovell, City Fidelia, Black Iri$h and Hevve that are local613 favourites.
Somehow I haven’t heard of Spitten Image but seeing the music video for Iconic, there is a scene from his Babylon Nightclub performance.
It is good to represent an Ottawa hotspot venue.
2020 might be an interesting year for Clayton Barry Hawkins.
Check out the music video.
Really like the debut album by O70 Shake called Modus Vivendi.
Mix of emo rap, Alternative hip hop and ambient pop
Modus Vivendi opens the next phase of 070 Shake’s journey.
The album brings her reflective style to the spotlight with boundary-pushing creativity and pure emotional honesty as her compass.
“I just really go with how I feel in the moment, and then that’s where the writing comes from.
It’s like an ongoing disperse of words when I feel something.”
In a world obsessed with consumption, Shake is a much-needed breath of fresh air, more than ready to make her impact felt through music.
“I want it to make a change in the world. The agenda is bigger than just music.”

Talk about an epic song for 2019!
Previously posted Wettworker back in November.
About the song:
‘I Carry the Fire’ is the new single from Wettworker’s upcoming album The Legend of the Thugeater.
Musically speaking, it appears as an incredible incursion within different genres, irrefutably displaying Wettworker’s mastering of different sounds.
Through a music crescendo that arises from a Pink Floydish atmosphere and falls drastically into an 80s-inspired Beastie Boys world, with sporadic intrusion into the best hardcore rhythms, it might appear as a daring experimentation.
While this could be somehow true, it doesn’t exhaust the inner complexity and depth of this “almost-16-minute-long” piece.
The song literally breaks its formula closer to the 8th minute, mutating firstly into some kind of ballad and then into a beautiful and intense rock segment led by the voice and the guitar of Christine Flynn, to whom the entire song is dedicated.
‘I Carry the Fire’ is a tough parabola through different stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
A tribute track to celebrate the life of a great singer and guitar player, a narration about suicide, and the physical and emotional void that it left.
We get lost in a sort of cathartic rage; a liberating vortex that will leave us heartily exhausted and bodily free.
This is Wettworker at his most raw and vulnerable, and it is a tribute to one of his biggest inspirations and best friends. Truly, a heartfelt track that’s putting everything out there.
Have a listen to the song.
Today, Vancouver artist Wettworker released the single called Trill Cosby
Taken from the upcoming album The Legend of the Thugeater which is TBA.
Trill Cosby introduces you into its world through sampled sounds that remind that of waves, its dark atmosphere will haunt you with its 80’s West Coast hip-hop reminisces.
Have a listen and look at the music video.
