[Audio] Chef’s Plate- “PourED Up” (Prod: Chef’s Plate)

IMG_1128 (1)

“It’s impossible to listen to this and not want to get up and dance. The energy is too infectious!!!” – LordQuest.

Coming back red hot after quite a long hiatus, Chef’s Plate finally hits us with another remix entitled “Poured Up”. Chef’s Plate consists of Junia-T, an emcee and producer from Mississaugua, and Lord Quest, a Toronto based artist and producer. This track works to fuse what people love about Rihanna‘s “Pour It Up” with adlibs from Kendrick Lamar‘s “Swimming Pools” to create a complimentary mash-up that takes advantage of both artists strengths. Rihanna’s vocals are easy on the ears (as would be expected) and mesh’s with the production almost as if they were made for eachother. Kendrick’s verse near the end is welcomed, and fits the mash up well, with a couple glitchy additions courtesy of Chef’s Plate.

Chef’s Plate is an experimental project that has hip-hop artists and the realm of future bass working to become one. Junia-T debuted his latest effort “Eye See You” last winter, while LordQuest has gained recognition through his debut “Still Shopping“, and his production credits on Talib Kweli’s “Gravitas”, and ScHoolboy Q’s “Oxymoron”.

What do you think about the spin Chef’s Plate put on two popular tunes? It isn’t easy to remix a song that’s already considered to be a hit, but do they do it justice? Let us know below.

[Interview] Big Sean talks OVO Fest and Overcoming Fear

Big Sean Interview 2015

I’m proud to present our second interview with the homie Big Sean! The first interview was four years ago in Toronto and this time around we caught up with him in London during his Canadian Tour. Big Sean speaks on the times he was full of fear and impatience coming up as an artist and why he feels the journey is just as important as the prize. Big Sean also shared his excitement of performing at this years OVO Fest and how he measures success. The interview ended off with a question if Big Sean had $100 million would he still be hungry as an artist? What do you think? Would you?
