Mr. A is a Front runner in the Independent Rap scene

Independent hip-hop is the backbone to the genre. Many artists who rap, create beats, and produce go unnoticed even though the musicians are progressing the music for the big name artists. I stumbled across an artist who’s a perfect example of this statement. Marvinnik Appaihene-Afriyie, a.k.a. Mr. A, is a young, Toronto-based rapper who personality andContinue reading “Mr. A is a Front runner in the Independent Rap scene”

Dallas Sutherland makes a comeback for folk

With folk music making a big comeback, it’s only fitting to include somebody who sets the genre apart. As a Canadian (Sorry to break the news), I take pride in my musicians.

James Blake tops his debut with Overgrown

I have a dark secret. Back in 2011, I skipped out on James Blake’s debut LP, James Blake, because of skepticism.

Autre Ne Veut – Anxiety Review

R&B is one of the most popular genres of music so far in the 21st century. Everything released from 2000-2004 that was on top 40 seemed to fall into the “Rhythm & Blues’ category. Like rap music, it’s largely connected with the African-American demographic and reigned up until recently as an ‘anti-hipster’ genre. If you claimedContinue reading “Autre Ne Veut – Anxiety Review”
