Recap: OUTRO SUPERIOR – TFHOUSE

[TFHOUSE at his last show of 2011. Sneaky Dees, if you were there, youuu knowwwww]

What a frickin’ year for TFHOUSE and the DSTRY team. We went from Teddy’s show at Nocturne where he performed hits from his On My Way mixtape, to Teddy opening up for MacMiller in July for like 5000 people, to Teddy opening up for Wiz Khalifa on September, then The Weeknd in London, ON, and then him closing off the year with his show OUTRO SUPERIOR at Sneaky Dee’s. What an amazing run!! I couldn’t be more proud of the fam, especially my sister Beetle Brit, aka April Management — TFHOUSE’s manager. They really did the ground work this year in order to prep themselves for what’s to come in 2012… and if my intuition is correct, it’s about to get reeeaaallll hectic.

Recap: SOUL CUSTODY Vol. 1 Album Release Party

[Lady Shabazz]

It seems like we had all been waiting for this forever! For the past year I have been seeing/hearing this group prepare for the release of their first album and to see it live on stage was beaaauuttiful! Apollo givin’ so much energy on stage that his veins look like they were about to pop outta his neck, Lady Shabazz and her gorgeous sequined lace poncho and obviously, her buttery buttery voice, and producer Unlimited’s nasty beats makin’ the jam live… it was amaaazing.

Here are the pics from the night. Hollerate!

Oh man oh man oh man oh man. I have been a HUGE fan of this woman’s work since I first saw a necklace she did for my boy Kit Knows. Her style is so distinct, simple, elegant and wicked cool. My girl Asia Clarke, affiliated with 88 Days of Fortune, has started her own¬†jewelry line under the name of Wild Moon, and is throwing her first special event, introducing the world to her unique and wonderful pieces!

SOUL CUSTODY x ALBINO ZEBRAH Double CD Release Party!

It’s Wednesday and there’s more to celebrate other than humping. My peoples SOUL CUSTODY, aka Damian, Lady Shabaz, and Apollo Creed are finally releasing their album that they’ve been working on all year. I’ve heard it multiple times, I’ve listened to them practice, and I can’t tell you enough how freaking talented these guys are. Damian’s creative and original production, Allie’s ridiculously buttery voice, Apollo’s dirty sound when he spits… really REALLY something you’ve never heard and will love, if you appreciate good music.

Recap: The FUNDAMENTALS June Edition

As per ush, if you weren’t there last Friday… I honestly don’t know what was more interesting. Mensa and Big Jacks held it down, and our special guest DJ Kariz was a treat to have on the decks! I was thoroughly smashed and enjoyed capturing the night, especially considering there were so many beautiful people there. I actually never stop surprising myself with how good these pictures turn out and how awesome everyone looks. Ya’ll make my job too easy!

DJ Stylus Awards 2011

[GoGetters Ent. VanCity in the house! Jenno and Stylus Nominee DJ CocoFresh]

This week has been insane to say the least… either way, I’ve been meaning to post these from jump, but better late than never. Monday evening marked the 2011 DJ Stylus Awards, held at Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Shouts to my girl Simone who ran a tight ship that night and hooked up the tickets for me to attend. Celebrating Canadian DJ’s and Hip Hop, it had been 3 years since I last attended this event, and maan I have to say — it has come a long way. From expanding categories to the legit sponsorships, this year’s Stylus was pretty good! I was stoked on reaching because many of my friends got nominated this year. Highlight for me, by far, had to be when Rich Kidd won Artist Mixtape of the Year. He had much respect from all the people in that room, and I couldn’t be any more proud of him for what he’s accomplished through that mixtape, and with all the artists that worked on it with him. It was a celebration nonetheless…
