[Audio] Adria Kain- “Higher”


Adria Kain gives us a taste of what goes on in the depths of her mind with “Higher”. She speaks nostalgically on her experiences growing up in the suburbs of Burlington, ON. to moving into the city of Toronto, realizing that none of these places are really where she wants to be. Facing challenges and hard times along the way, Kain keeps us uplifted by reassuring us that regardless of what she goes through, her determination to succeed and make it higher is never ending. The song also keeps the mood high with its uptempo, rhythmic & trap like sounds. You can expect this song and more on Adria’s highly anticipated album entitled “Island In My Mind”, set to release later this fall.

Manifesto’s ongoing goal is to help support and develop well-rounded young artists in Toronto, and arm them with the tools to succeed. With this vision in mind, Manifesto developed a 4 class curriculum, entitled The Mentor Class Series, carried out over this past November, December & January. The classes took place in the basement of Manifesto’s office at 37 Bulwer St, and were a resounding success. Each class was moderated by David “Click” Cox, and included expert panelists like Illangelo, Rich Kidd, Skratch Bastid, Gaurav Sawhney, Katrina Lopes, Cameron Wright, and many more… From there we invited young artists who attended the classes to record at Dream House Studios and this month we will be showcasing some of the work recorded.

This music would not be possible without the support of Dave Plowman, Calvin Hartwick & Adrien Gough at Dream House Studios & ArtsVest.

[Video] Amniat-”Never Know” (Dir. B.Kelly)


Amniat is back with his latest video, “Never Know.” The B.Kelly directed video follows Amniat through some serious soul searching as he spills his thoughts out to a growing audience. The Nick Rio produced instrumental brings that knock, and Amniat does it justice by delivering some next level word play. Each track this dude puts out leaves me guessing, “How he can top that?” My questions are always answered by a product that is fresh and innovative; the kid can spit! Be sure to check,”Never Know,” and leave your comments below.

[Audio] Jeezy feat. Kendrick Lamar- “Holly Ghost remix” (Prod. Don Cannon)


Jeezy links up with Kendrick Lamar for the remix to, “Holly Ghost.” I mean, what can I say that you don’t already know. Jeezy and Kendrick on the same track isn’t even fair to the rest of the hip hop game. Jeezy already came correct the first time around, and Kendricks guest verse on the remix to “Holly Ghost,” turns this track up to a whole different level.

[Video] Kirsten Olivia ft. Kayo- “Stay Away” (Dir: The Russian)

Kirsten Olivia Stay

This fluorescent, fierce and sexy video shows us Kirsten has all the right moves, and a voice that is sure to get people talking.

If you are a regular visitor to The Come Up Show, then you know we’ve supported our brother Kayo Guevarra from time G! This time around Kayo and Yogidaproducer present the lovely Kirsten Olivia. Her debut EP T.H.A.N. (The Here And Now), was released in July and we’re excited to world premiere her new video Stay Away from the project. This video was directed by The Russian for Independent Muscle Productions, who have been steadily supplying our independent Canadian talent with the highest quality videos and features rapper Kayo and production from Yogidaproducer. 

[Interview + Podcast] Freddie Joachim talks digging for records, keys to happiness, and advice for new artists

Interview by: Martin Bauman

Few contemporary producers have mastered the art of smooth, jazz-based hip-hop more than Freddie Joachim. The San Diego producer/deejay has mellow to a tee, which is only fitting considering he helps run the independent label Mellow Orange. Joachim has earned respect from all corners — collaborating with the likes of Aloe Blacc, Blu, and Joey Bada$$, and gaining co-signs from everyone from Slum Village to Phonte — including here in Canada, where he’s forged a friendship with fellow producer Muneshine and earned props from Slakah the Beatchild. After releasing Fiberglass Kisses in 2012, Joachim is working on his latest album, set for release sometime next year. We caught up with him to talk about crate digging, keys to happiness, advice for new artists, and much more.
