[Video] Dhamiri- “With It” (Dir. Kamil Boguski)

dhamiri
Toronto’s local music scene has been heating up lately, especially with UK born recording artist Dhamiri releasing the visual for his track “With It” produced by ZAGOR. Dhamiri hits us with some machine gun flow and aims to satisfy listeners with his confident bars and in your face attitude. Representing Loudica Music Group, Dhamiri is an artist that places focus on his ability to forge rhythmic tracks that blend an international sound with the dark vibes that are often associated with Toronto. Dhamiri also has a plethora of experiences that have shaped him into the artist he is today, from his youngest years in the middle-eastern territory known as Kuwait, to the growth of his new life in the city.

“With It” starts off with some dark production courtesy of ZAGOR, before Dhamiri jumps in red hot right off the bat with his fiery bars. The entire track revolves around Dhamiri’s ability to keep the listener intrigued with his machine gun flow that never stops. The visuals themselves represent a more polished look at Dhamiri as he captures some Toronto imagery brought to us by Kamil Boguski.

Dhamiri is capturing the attention of fans in his birth place of the UK, and Toronto’s rapidly growing music scene. After his debut project “Pay Up” was released this past February, we’re itching to hear what Dhamiri is cooking up next. What do you think of “With It”? Let us know in the comments section.

[Audio] Devontée – “Keeping 6″ [Prod: Devontée]

Devonteekeep6

Toronto’s own rising rapper and producer Devontée is back again with another solid track “Keeping 6″. Proudly representing his crew WOE (Working On Excellence), Devontée has been living up to his motto and has been relentlessly working on his upcoming mixtape District Vibe, which is set to be released later the year.

Self produced, the beat starts with an underlying affected vocal that builds up to a rhythmic drop. As the drum fills end,  the leader of the WOEs enters with his first verse. Bass heavy with glossy tubular bell loop, and spurts of high hats, the instrumentals is as catchy as the chorus. Lyrically, Devontée is simply documenting his life and experiences. Creating his entire music catalogue, network, company, and team all by himself,  he is truly genuine when rapping about his ambitions and goals.

A hundred percent real with it and gaining more and more momentum everyday, Devontée is the total package and is becoming serious competition for other Toronto artists. Like what you hear and want to support Devontée and the WOE movement? Feel free to comment in the section below.

[Audio] C Dot Castro ft. Earlly Mac- “One Too” (Prod. Jae Faive)

Get acquainted with C Dot Castro, a dope emcee straight out of Gaithersburg, Maryland and his newest record “One Too” featuring Earlly Mac. Produced by frequent collaborator Jae Faive, Castro aims for a head bopping track on this one, in addition to the bar fest that the two have no problem throwing down.

C Dot Castro has been in the game for quite some time and is one of the founding members of The RattPack, consisting of his long time friends Big Lenbo, and Logic. Logic is also an emcee from Gaithersburg signed to Def Jam Records, as well as being part of Visionary Music Group, who is fresh off his debut album release Under Pressure. Castro has been releasing solo cuts of tracks for years before dropping his long awaited debut mixtape “DOT” (Don’t Over Think) about 4 months ago, which enjoyed much success, especially for a debut.

The track starts out with some of the digitally inspired production that starts the head bopping before Castro seamlessly slides in and brings the track to a whole new level. Castro really brings the heat on this one, starting off his verse with pure bars and doesn’t let up until the track hits the end. His signature sound at this point would be his non-stop lyrical bars, unstoppable flow, and ability to hit the machine gun style rap without fail in which he exhibits all three and one point or another during the impressive track. Next up is Earlly Mac, his style compliments the feel of the song really well, and is seemingly the perfect fit for the feature. His bars shouldn’t be ignored either, as he brings some more fire to an already hot song. In terms of the production, Jae Faive brings it nicely, creating a beat that doesn’t take too much focus away from the artists, while still incorporating some appreciated elements, such as glitchy samples, that come together to complete the package.

Castro has been jumping on a bunch of tracks lately, most recently on the song “Call of Duty” with Arizona based rapper Futuristic just two weeks ago. Since C Dot Castro’s debut mixtape “DOT”, you can bet he’s been writing and recording for his next full release which will drop at some point in the future. Personally, I’m a big fan of C Dot Castro, and think he can do quite a bit for the rap game, he offers a refreshing take on what he releases and is easily differentiated from the rest based on his talent, flow, lyrical prowess, and confidence. Keep it up Castro, because we can’t wait to hear what you come out with next.
