It’s been a most incredible week for me! I’ve got some great new projects in the pipeline, collaborating with some great people to marry art & commerce! Moments like this, as a career artist, are pretty rare, but everything this track was about (as I mentioned before).

An ENORMOUS thank you to everyone who came out to the release party last night! I dropped this new bootleg in my set, and it went over SO well with the crowd. Last night was just so incredible, and I was so honoured to be supported by such amazing talent as Elaquent, MALOO, JIIN, and djseansaxblog! Also, the hugest thanks to the almighty istolethesoul!
Yesterday, I did a little live-commentary listening party for The Forest via Twitter. For those of you who missed it, peep some insight into the stories and meanings behind each track, as well as some behind-the-scenes looks into the technical things that went into the tracks. Press play and read along!
EP dropped and now waiting on the launch party. As soon as you run the first track you’re in a cosmological mood. I totally fuck with that type of vibe and haven’t been listening hard enough ever since Arima Ederra’s Earth To Arima. Every detail caters towards the title itself and I love how Paul adds a bit of hip-hop flavour to the nature ambiance. Give this a listen.

I’m catching some warm and fuzzy feelings right now! The kind folks at Thump (Ziad Ramley, to be specific) had such wonderful things to say about Triumph Howl, the next single from my upcoming EP, and even premiered it! The Forest is available for pre-order now, and the EP release party will be going down at Wrongbar next Thursday!
We’ve upgraded to a bigger location! See you guys at Wrongbar! Also, we’re now partnering with HAILO to give away $20 taxi credits to anyone who buys an advance ticket! Come out, have a couple drinks, and relax because your ride is covered!
Ladies and gentlemen of the internet: It gives me great pleasure to announce my release party for The Forest, next month at the legendary Drake Underground! I’m honoured to be supported by some of the most talented producers I’ve ever had the pleasure of being friends with: Elaquent, Maloo (aka Maylee Todd), JIIN, and DJ Sean Sax, so it’s pretty much guaranteed that it’s going to be an amazing night of amazing sounds!
