Matthew Good: GUNS OF CAROLINA


I've been a long time fan of Matthew Good dating way back to his first album, Last of the Ghetto Astronauts, with MGB. Seen him several times in Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary, and Vancouver. Here's a new song/ video from his new Arrows of Desire album. Enjoy.

Vivek Shraya feat Shamik: WATER RUNS DRY


My brother, Vivek Shraya, has been working on a Babyface cover album to pay tribute to one of the best R&B songwriters and producers of the 90's.

Below is the third single which I beatboxed on, and it's Water Runs Dry originally done by Boyz II Men.



--Babyface was one of the first artists I was exposed to who could do everything. He is a writer, a producer and a performer. But what I was most compelled by were Babyface’s songs—songs he wrote and/or produced. His songs are dense with melody and sincerity. Void of contemporary irony and over-production, they are all heart, even sonically, right from the beginning, right from the first bars of “Breathe Again” or “Take a Bow.” There is truly no song like a Babyface song.--

Om Unit + Jinadu: THE SILENCE


Lovely new tune from Om Unit. His full length LP titled Threads is out on Civil Music on Oct 28!!



--Threads is the debut album from London producer Om Unit, to be released on 28th October 2013 via Civil Music. While this is a debut full length for Om Unit, real name Jim Coles, it is in fact the producer's fourth studio album, following from work in the 2000s under the name 2tall. Having reset the clock on his artistic output in 2010, Coles has spent the past three years refining a unique sound as Om Unit via collaborations with Machinedrum on Planet Mu, releases on Goldie's Metalheadz, dBridge's Exit Records and Civil Music, his own Cosmic Bridge label and the short-lived Phillip D. Kick alias that fleshed out the links between Chicago's footwork, jungle and slow/fast. The confluence of all this work takes full flight on Threads.--
