Toronto rapper-and-producer Junia T serves up some nostalgic old-skool flavoured hip hop on this new LP, featuring an eclectic mix of guests from London emcee Lil Simz to Columbia-born singer YGTUT, and was premiered on OkayPlayer,
The beats are all produced by T himself, made up of soulful instrumentation and boom-bap percussion reminiscent of J Dilla. They’re smooth and perfectly polished.
T raps on about half the tracks, leaving the mic to guest vocalists on the remaining tracks. An impressive amount of underground talent is on display here – all the guests give solid performances. Junia T especially is being slept on.
"This project is a collage of vibes reflecting all that I've been through in the past year and a half. A big thank you to the Universe for holding a brova down... Eye See You" Junia-T.

Following his 2010 release ‘Swim’, Caribou’s Dan Snaith has fallen deeper in love with the word we all know and love; thus bringing you the brand new dance-enhanced album release from our favourite Canadian musical genius.
Snaith’s latest work sees diversity at it’s best, with a cool blend of house, hip-hop, garage and a touch of vintage soul. Released 6th October, Caribou completely flips a slow sample of soul into a vocal that subtly blends into rave-ready synths with his opening track ‘Can’t Do Without You’.
Further into the album you can expect more of Snaith’s creativity, providing us with enough hip-hop samples and intricate drum patterns to secure a place within the successful electronic releases of 2014.

With enough experience to rival a small country, forty-year-old Tiga has once again produced efficient tech/electro-house for those who love to hear a love story unfold; it’s all about that girl who came up to him, asking what he’s driving. You should already know what he said.
