Fortunato – Flatline

Toronto MC Fortunato has released the new video “Flatline” off his album Unseen Armada. Directed by Del Reze for Streetscape Sounds and produced by Beaatz of the award winning group City Natives.

This video is dedicated to Krawn Godly who died this past Sunday. Fortunato began rapping with Krawn in high school in the same group which later became Angerville alongside Ill Da Shystee (R.I.P.) and Conscious Thought. Fortunato explains “I dropped a song all about making the most of life before it’s too late. Next thing you know a friend I grew up rapping with dies and the message, as contrived as it may be, becomes so much more profound”.

M-Bomb – A Story No One Told

27e606b70c2e60db73391f446d9f1067

 

MIXTAPE RELEASE: M-BOMB – A STORY NO ONE TOLD

In a sea of hip-hop artists chasing the latest trends, M-Bomb is a breath of fresh air. More concerned with storytelling than braggadocio, the 22-year-old emcee has always embraced and admired music’s ability to forge a deep connection with the listener. It should come as no surprise that among his biggest influences are Shad, Classified, and Common.

Originally from Waterloo, ON, M-Bomb (otherwise known as Martin Bauman) began rapping at the age of 15, after hearing Mos Def and Talib Kweli’s Black Star and Common’s “I Used To Love H.E.R.” As a teenager, he honed his craft at talent shows and coffee houses, all while releasing a number of unofficial albums: 2009’s That’s Life and Baker’s Dozen, and 2011’s Revelation/Revolution. For the past three years, M-Bomb has been working towards his first official mixtape release, A Story No One Told.

A Story No One Told is a 10-track narrative originally inspired by Shad’s song of the same name and the idea that the greatest story never told is our own. “When asked about our lives and accomplishments, we’re often quick to downplay our experiences as commonplace and nothing special,” says M-Bomb. “The truth is, within each of us lies an incredible story waiting to be told. With this release, my aim is to tell my story, in the hope of inspiring others to take notice of their own.” A Story No One Told tells stories of hope, fear, love, regret, and optimism – often within the same breath.

Appropriately for such an introspective project, the mixtape is mostly feature-free, with the exception of an appearance by rising Oakville, ON emcee/producer A-Fos (who also mixed the project) on “Boom/Get Out The Way.” Production-wise, M-Bomb does double-duty on “How The Story Begins” and “While You Were Sleeping,” with the remainder of the mixtape sampling from a number of the most influential producers and artists in the Waterloo emcee’s lifetime.

Along with the release, M-Bomb has teamed up with a number of talented visual artist friends to create exclusive, one-of-a-kind pieces of art for each song. The ten pieces will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to Unity Charity.

Philly Moves – Fuxwitchu

ph_fux

Hailing from the Nation’s Capital and now based in Toronto, Canada, Philly Moves is an independent MC/Producer hip-hop duo. One of the country’s top emerging acts, they have performed almost 200 times across North America, sharing the stage with both emerging and established acts from both sides of the border.

Using both sample based and original production methods, producer Rockwell crafts complex soundscapes that straddle the line between organic and experimental perfectly, providing a rich canvas for MC Tragic’s compelling songwriting and charismatic flow. Live, their set is high energy and heavy on intimacy; Rockwell switching back and forth seamlessly from live beat making on the MPC to playing acoustic guitar and crooning while Tragic controls the crowd with a commanding stage presence. Truly a collaborative effort, Philly Moves distinctive style combines the tastes and experiences of both men, their personal and artistic chemistry evident both on stage and on wax.

Philly Moves has spent almost a full year working on an entirely new project. “Olga”, a more mature look and sound for the pair, is available now through URBNET both digitally and on vinyl. Look out for them coming through your city this fall and stay tuned for their next music video!
