Avarice 'Here I Go' (Av vrs BCC)


So Sorry! Can't believe I slept on posting this. One of my favorite MC's out right now. His flow reminds me listening to Dexter Gordon quick but swung back on the beat and so slick while always innovative.

Lyrics Born - Hott People



This is such an awesome song I think is totally underrated. LB kicks some incredible flows and the beat on this is really well produced, I love the 80's vibe going on. He is one of the few rappers who can really say just about anything in a rap and make it cool. This whole thing just puts a big smile on mah face every time I hear it , hope it does the same for you.

Mister Luke O'Hearn feat DJ A.I. 'Might'



This my fam Mister Luke O'Hearn. He did up this rad vid for a song we did a while back, 'Might'. The production is pretty cool for a homemade webcam video and I'm super stoked I now have a way to hand sign my DJ name. Much props.

Mr. A. 2 Tha V. 'Avarice'

This is really one of my favorite MC's out right now. Have a listen. Avarice has a ever changing flow which falls so nicely under the back beat with swing phrasing reminiscent of Dexter Gordon. Besides just raw lyrical skill Avarice also has the ability to evoke strong imagery and conscious thoughts. Stay on the look out for this dude you won't be disappointed. Someone bringing the real hip-hop back.

Naeem Oba-The Symbolism Mixtape

I realized a short while after starting this blog that I would have to post this and do a little review. This is really one of the wonders of myspace. I found this guy on a comment of one of my good musical friends. I decided to go to his page and check him out. His bio was one of the first things that got my attention. The tracks in his player sounded good and I noticed he had a mixtape available though Datpiff. I love getting new music and have got close to 100 mixtapes in the last year. So I grabbed a copy, like 17 tracks whoa! First time I rocked it in my iPod I was blown away. This dude has something to say and it's actually worth listening to. Tracks like 'Shoot Your TV' bring me back to hip-hop with a worth while message. Don't get me wrong though Naeem doesn't make every track super serious but does keep the Symbolism theme running. 'Sway' is definitely not message infused song but it has a great beat and catchy hook making it one of my fav's from this mix. So anyway don't just take my word for it here's the link. Go grab a copy and find out for yourself. If your feeling it go and shoot my man some feedback.

New CD from Ill Lyrics 'Island Life'

Well it's finally available for digital sale. 'Island Life' is the second release from Ill Lyrics. This is an awesome CD. Positive message in the songs, some great local MC's like Midnight, Evo Freez and Curtis C. The sound is a great hip-hop vibe mixed with a bit of modern electronica. I did just over half the production on this so I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. Have a listen through the tracks here, thanks.



Peace

Billy Slade - Where You At!?

Word up. I got tipped onto this guy Billy Slade www.billyslade.com





He asked me to do a review of his new video. So I agreed and here we are.





I was kind of surprised with how cool this vid was. The whole thing is pretty high quality, in my opinion. I found the the animal picture theme amusing as well as Billy's raps. Sort of reminds me of a few Kosha Dillz songs with not taking things to seriously. The song itself is a bit repetitive with the same horn line the whole way though. The video really helps give some more action to the song. All in all, I thought it was great and would definitely recommend it to friends. Some come have a listen a judge for yourself. Check out more of Billy Slade at http://billyslade.bandcamp.com/track/chapstick where he is offering a new single (Chapstick) for free.

Thanks for reading

Dr. Lachaven

Dr. Lachaven. 
A young beat maker and emcee from Gabriola Island. Tha Dr crafts chilling beats and spits energetic flows. His style is sort of dark minimalist, chopped samples over tight breaks, every track evokes it's own mood. I recently enlisted him to do an EP with me, the first time I have ever rapped on anybody's beats other than my own. The project is called 'Stand Alone Complex' sort of dedication to the 'Ghost In The Shell' anime. Look for the release around the end Oct. or early Nov. well hopefully at least. 
In the meantime give the tunes a listen .

Perfect Blue EP From Atari Blitzkrieg

Well it was a day earlier than expected but it's here. The 'Perfect Blue' Ep from Atari Blitzkrieg. This project is a dedication to famed anime director Satoshi Kon, who passed away last month. The EP features production from myself (Dj A.I.), Moka Only, magOwl, Jazz Spastiks, Digital Fiend and Dr Quandry. Atari brings his expected mind bending lyrical prowess and evokes some amazing imagery. Atari set's up the vibe really well right from the start. 'An Evening In Tokyo' Featuring Fuca Chan (produced by 'magOwl')has an airy floating feeling which sort of reminds me of a dream state from 'Paprika'. The brain melting blur continues through the seven tracks and finishes off on the note it started on. 'The Days Of Future Past' (produced by Dr. Quandry) is a perfect ending to a perfect EP. Go grab yourself a copy, have a listen and hit me up on www.iamsubstance.com with some feedback.
