Via ATF!

I just spoke to Oliver and yes, this is the one. Wait until you see the whole album’s packaging, it’ll make sense. Also, the tracklisting will be published very soon. How soon? Don’t ask 🙂 – but I must say that it is looking very promising though. Thank Me Later drops on Tuesday June 15th 2010.

That is all. – hustleGRL

NEWS: D-Sisive Announces June 15th Release Of Vaudeville!

Ty Harper | Album,Artwork,Music,News | Friday, April 30th, 2010


From Urbnet Records:

Only an artist as adventurous and prolific as D-Sisive could create an album as exciting as Vaudeville. And only an album like Vaudeville could attract an internationally celebrated troubadour like Ron Sexsmith to make his first appearance on a hip-hop album.

Step right up ladies and gentlemen… and welcome to the crazy world of D-Sisive’s Vaudeville.

D-Sisive is a one man music machine cruising to the hum of his own engine. After last year’s triumphant return to the hip-hop limelight with both his Polaris Prize nominated gem Let The Children Die, and his second classic full length of 2009, the acclaimed Jonestown, one would think the accomplished Toronto MC would be content to rest on his ever-expanding laurels. Not D-Sisive. The enigmatic one is back – and this time taking things to an entirely new level with the epic Vaudeville.

Produced in tandem with Andrew ‘Fresh Kils’ Kilgour and featuring a surprise cameo from legendary Canadian songsmith, Ron Sexsmith, Vaudeville is filled with incredible hip hop tracks, and slight of hand tricks. Smoke and mirror gags mixed with punch lines, and intense stories. An album that showcases the wide variety of influences and themes which only an enigmatic master of ceremonies (or possibly snake oil salesman?) like D-Sisive could pull off.

Vaudeville is definitely new territory for me,” D-Sisive says. “It was extremely challenging. The last thing I wanted to create was a replica of my previous releases. My mind doesn’t operate the same anymore. I’m happier, older and have tapped into my inner love for the music of Michael Buble. You can’t listen to ‘Haven’t Met You Yet’ then write songs for the end credits of Celebrity Rehab.”

A happy D-Sisive? Well, as happy as song titles like “Percocet” “The Night My Baby Died” and “The Riot Song” allow him to be. It’s no secret that D-Sisve has long looked outside of the confines of traditional hip-hop to find inspiration and this go-round is no different. But D-Sisive and Ron Sexsmith? Together on the same track? No one saw that coming. “Working with Ron Sexsmith was incredible,” D-Sisive explains. “Very surreal. I’ve been harassing him for years to get on a song with me. Thank god restraining orders expire.”

And despite his prolific nature, it seems unlikely we’ll ever know everything that motivates D-Sisive. Still through all the smoke and mirrors, the tricks and the treats, it’s a love of rocking the microphone unlike few others today that sustains D-Sisive’s enduring appeal.

Vaudeville. The name itself conjures up images of past glories, shiny suits and fast talk, half-remembered from days long gone by. Sometimes it seems hip hop may go the way of Vaudeville, a fallen empire rendered irrelevant by the cruelties of time. MC D-Sisive however, b-boy to the bone, refuses to go down without a fight. Streets, backstage, city parks, it doesn’t matter…

Urbanology Spring 2010

For Immediate Release

Urbanology Magazine’s New Issue Highlights One of Canada’s
Most Sought-After Producers, Boi-1Da

Toronto, ON – Urbanology releases its latest issue this week with one of Canada’s most sought-after producers gracing the cover. After producing the Grammy-nominated single “Best I Ever Had” by Drake and the star-studded “Forever” featuring Kanye West, Lil Wayne Eminem and the aforementioned Drake, all of Matthew ‘Boi-1Da’ Samuels’ hard work is beginning to pay off.

His first feature in Urbanology was when he was only 17, five years ago, after being crowned champion of the Battle of the Beatmakers competition. This producer battle was an annual event sponsored by Urbanology, where the hottest producers in the city would come out and try to take the top spot. Boi-1Da went on to consecutively win this producers battle three more times, before taking the role of a judge.

After sitting down with Boi-1Da for the cover story, it was clear that despite his rapid growth to success, he still remains humble. He is a positive symbol in Canadian hip-hop and continually reiterates the message of always going after dreams and never giving up hope, the theme of this issue.

Also included in this issue is a feature on Bite TV’s Rhyming Chef, world champion beatboxer Scott Jackson and an in-depth feature on corporate Canada’s move to using the urban voice in marketing campaigns. Plus read all about how, after finding a new home in Canada, Death Row Records seems to have a chance at a resurrection
