2012 release recap


Hey everyone! Gearing up to ride the momentum into 2013! Here are the 5 releases I was blessed to be a part of this year:


Shamik- Westward Rising vol II

This came out in February featuring collabs with 5 great producers from Western Canada. They have all done amazing things this year on their own projects and it was honour to work with them. I beatboxed, sang, MC'd on the tunes, and most of it was wrapped this time last year. *Bandcamp purchase link*

Grasp The Erro- In The Now EP

This was a 2 tune drum and bass EP that came out in April on Bombeatz Music (label out of Florida). Grasp featured my vocals on the title track with a high energy rollin tune called Whitness as the b-side. We managed to collaborate numerous times in the past 2 years! *Beatport purchase link*

Shamik- Future Passed

This was my solo concept EP that came out in July with every tune produced by Grasp The Erro. It's about life, death, time, and space...I'm really proud of how it turned out and thankful for how much support my peers showed towards the release. *Free download*

Shamik- 121212

This came out on 121212 (my 30th bday) a few weeks ago. I was sitting on a few tunes that I produced out of layers of my voice. I've been working on a bunch of music lately, but a lot of it is not beatbox related so I wanted to put these ones out together and then move on to the next project:) My friends Cher Olvera out of Edmonton and Quest Seraphim out of Vancouver were kind enough to share their vocal gifts on the EP..and I decided to release it/ call it 121212 to celebrate the auspicious day:) I hope it continues to spread! *Free download*

Jpod & Shamik- Vibes Alive

This also just came out on Dec 26 on Swing Set Sounds (Jpod's label out of Kelowna). He produced the tune and I performed a verse encouraging people to keep their eyes to the sky:) It has 2 versions of the song, a remix from All Good Funk Alliance, the instrumentals, and an unreleased Jpod tune called Switchback. It's out exclusively on Beatport and will be out everywhere else in a couple weeks:) *Beatport purchase link*



Much love! Lots more music to come in 2013! Happy new year:)
