The classic RnB revival gets a boost later this month with Toronto band YUKA‘s fourth release – their first on vinyl – called From the Ancients. For Yuka, the RnB/soul sound is anything but a trend. “Everyone in the band likes that kind of music,” says guitarist James Tayor. “The sound of that music is […]

It may come as a surprise to find that Stereo Dynamite Sessions, Vol. 1, just released in Canada on October 16, 2015, is the debut solo album from Simone Denny. After all, we’ve been hearing her voice tearing up the dance floor for years. The five-time Juno Award winner is the former lead singer of […]

I’m personally a huge fan of Abel Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd and a lot of the music he’s produced in the last two years. The extremely poignant tracks he releases focus on relishing in drug culture and the accompanying decadence of that lifestyle or as he says, “xo til we overdose”. With his album Kiss Land set […]

When this track came out in February, it seemed like this was a Weeknd song with Juicy J featured. XO takes up a majority of the track talking about the haze of one of his many drug-induced, cloud dancing nights. Juicy’s forthcoming album Stay Trippy – if it follows more of this kind of sound – is […]

Okay, right off the bat, let’s get this clear – this isn’t Kanye West’s new album. Compilation album that he’s the Exec. Producer on for the G.O.O.D label- that’s what this is. Whew, thank you & spread that knowledge please. Now, throughout the summer, Yeezy and his crew have been releasing some solid music. Between […]
