[Interview] Uncle Fester talks “Re:Fresh,” digging for records, and Backburner

Interview by: Martin Bauman

Even if you haven’t heard the name Uncle Fester before, chances are you’ve probably heard one of his records. As one half of The Extremities (along with Fresh Kils), he’s been responsible for some of the most impressive hip-hop coming out of Canada in the past five years – take a listen to The Mint Condition and see for yourself. In addition to his work with Kils, Uncle Fester has been putting in a ton of work with fellow Nova Scotian Ambition, as well as with his extensive Backburner crew. Most recently, he’s back behind the boards alongside Fresh Kils for The Extremities’ latest release, Re:Fresh, an 11-track album featuring official remixes of songs from the likes of Skyzoo, Rich Kidd, D-Sisive, and a whole bunch of other emcees. The Come Up Show caught up with Uncle Fester to discuss Re:Fresh, digging for records, Backburner, and much more.

[Video] Elli Ingram – “Poetic Justice” (Dir: Harry Cauty)

Elli Ingram - Poetic Justice

To be honest with you, I hate listening to covers because they’re not often better than the original. I mean, haven’t you stumbled upon a remix only to find yourself disappointed? Elli Ingram, a songwriter and singer from Brighton, adds her own spin to Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice” and it’s nothing less than perfection. Her soothing vocals are in-sync with the production by Felix Joesph & Rudi Redz and it makes you feel like she should have been on the original track alongside Kendrick. Her EP, SOBER, is dropping later this month and based off this, it’s obvious that it’s worth the wait. Take a look at the smooth visuals to this cover, directed by Harry Cauty.
