NEW ALBUM: Jaff – About Time

Ty Harper | Album | Friday, November 18th, 2011

New artist Jaff drops his debut tape/album About Time. Here’s more info. Tracklist under the hood.

Jaff’s an emcee from Toronto who’s been working hard and meticulously to perfect his craft. He just dropped his long awaited debut album appropriately titled “About Time” on 11/11/11. A solid project that feels like it was a life time in the making and carefully crafted. Jaff displays a diverse collection of tracks that range from conscious commentary to party joints, to something for the ladies and cuts with vicious lyricism that any hip hop head is sure to appreciate. Accompanying Jaff on “About Time” are the likes of Rez Raida, ELMNT, Mike Dara, Jae Ari, J’Rose, and B&M. With production from SoS, Hi-Rock, Muneshine, and Brandon Niles. Check it out, it’s About Time.

NEW ALBUM: Drake "Take Care" (Deluxe Edition)

Ty Harper | Album,Music | Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Feels kinda weird writing up this whole spiel for “Take Care” considering most have already heard the whole album, but it’s important to point out a couple of things. Firstly, the kid has once again upped the CanCon ante, this time with all but one song not featuring local production from either 40, 1da, T-Minus, The Weeknd, Illangelo, Doc, Chantal Kreviazuk or Drake himself. Secondly “Take Care” is clearly an ALBUM: well thought out, programmed and conceived, from beginning to end – a rarity nowadays in this the personal-playlist/iTunes era. Finally, it’s just good to see kids still lining up outside HMV for an album they could’ve easily picked up online or later today. Clearly that feeling that comes with physically wanting to get your hands on a brand new album hasn’t completely died… yet. So the idea that one more generation of kids have just experienced a feeling many of us religiously looked forward to – or even took for granted – is worth highlighting and relishing, even vicariously. That the album, artist and producers responsible for this moment are homegrown is just the icing on the cake.

Congrats to Drake and his team for making Toronto history one mo’ gin.

NEW ALBUM: D-Sisive "Run With The Creeps"

Ty Harper | Album,Audio | Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

D-Sisive drops another highly impressive full-length offering and I can’t lie – I’ve kinda felt like this dude is getting super overlooked in more ‘traditional’ hip-hop circles within the city. I mean, to each his own – but I just feel it’s kind of weird that what this dude’s been putting out since ’08 hasn’t gotten more ‘true-school’ acknowledgment. Especially considering that he’s a product/student/member of the very era we hail as the last vestige of the golden age. Anyways congrats to D-Sisive and his team for dropping another dope release.

And now, a word from the man himself:

it’s 11:38pm. in 22 minutes i’ll be releasing my 6th album. run with the creeps.

i’m refusing to use capital letters.

the only lights in my apartment come from my television. last week’s episode of dragon’s den. on mute.

i don’t feel the same way i’ve felt on my previous release eves. over excited? jaded? tired? low expectations? i can’t figure it out. i know i’m proud of this album. that’s all that matters, i suppose.

today my label informed me theres has been a lot of pre-orders. i’ve never been one to sell a lot of albums. the news made me happy. my vancouver show was packed. my shows are rarely. things definitely seem to be picking up. i’m happy.

and now the favour. i hope you don’t mind me asking one of you. not a difficult one. if you choose not to, i understand. this album has had minimal to zero promotion. this is usually the case. something i’m used to. this time around i need your help. nothing fancy. if you feel up for it, please mention the release in a facebook status. or a tweet. or pass the bandcamp/iTunes link on to a friend. or two. and if you like the music, come visit me when i’m in your town. if you choose to grant me this favour, your effort officially makes us posse members. a band. creeps!

iTunes:
http://itunes.apple.com/album/run-with-the-creeps/id477770506

Bandcamp:
http://urbnet.bandcamp.com/album/run-with-the-creeps

if you tweet, please include the hashtag #Creeps

does this request seem desperate? maybe. what’s the worst that can happen? you refuse. i’ve been through worse! 😉 your help will not go unnoticed and will be greatly appreciated. keep the train moving forward.

will this album match drake’s sales? absolutely not. will it change my life? hopefully. but not drastically. it’s going to take a lot more and i have a lot more in me.

5 minutes till release!

if you’ll excuse me, i must tupperware tomorrow’s lunch. work at 9!

hope you enjoy Run With The Creeps.

Derek
@dsisive

ps. i’d like to thank everyone involved in creating this album. and i’d like to thank everyone i make music for. hope to meet you all.

P.S. Celebrate the album release November 18th @ The Rivoli (332 Queen St. West).

NEW MUSIC: Jenna Garcia – Get Well Soon (Free Download for 10 Days)

Ty Harper | Album | Friday, November 11th, 2011

That girl Jenna Garcia (formerly known as Jenna G) returns with Get Well Soon. Nice to have you back Jenna! For those that need the reminder, Jenna did her thing out here like 2004-2006’ish (including giving Drizzy his first cameo verse and video appearance in this) and then kinda disappeared for a minute from the spotlight. She’s been busy writing and grinding with some heavyweights south of the border for the past couple years so it’s nice to see a next project come to light.

Features include JRDN, Kat and one of my all time least favorite artists, Karl Wolf.

DIRECTIONS: ADMINISTER TO HEART

DOSAGE: LISTEN DAILY….

THIS IS DEDICATED TO THOSE WHO OPEN THEIR HEARTS TO LOVE,

WITHOUT QUESTION, DOUBT, OR FEAR…..

AND EVEN THOUGH IT MIGHT HURT OR CAUSE YOU PAIN SOMETIMES,

LOVE IS STILL ALWAYS THE REMEDY…..

I HOPE YOU GET WELL SOON,

LOVE, JENNA GARCIA

(TO ALL OF MY PRODUCERS, ENGINEERS, FRIENDS, & EVERYONE WHO SHARED THEIR UNDENIABLE TALENT WITH ME ON THIS PROJECT, I LOVE YOU ALL,
