[Video] OB O’Brien – “Hamilton” (Dir: Figvrati Films)

Ok, so remember that random bearded guy in the green shirt that appeared all throughout Drake’s HYFR video? Well turns out he isn’t just one of the lucky guests that got invited to Drizzy’s re-Barmitzvah. I didn’t have high expectations before pressing play on this one, but OB quickly proved me wrong. The self-produced track “Hamilton” pays homage to his hometown with some dope footage by the people at Figvrati Films. OB’s sound has a cool vibe to it and he’s obviously hanging around the right people to further his career as an artist. OB O’Brien runs his own record label called Funny Colour Money and has written and produced for artists such as Big Sean, Ace Hood, Saukrates, JD Era and others. Check the video to “Hamilton” and feel free to download below.

Quake just dropped the visuals for “Set You Free”, off his newly released and highly recommended album The Book of Matthew. “Set You Free” is produced by Tone Mason. This was one of my favourites from the album, so it’s great to see the accompanying video. If you haven’t checked this album out yet, seriously, download it right now. It’s that good. Check out the video below.

[Mixtape] Dave Raps – “AKA Dave Ruffin”

It’s been over a year since Dave Raps has given us a new project, so AKA Dave Ruffin has definitely been something to look forward to. I’m feeling Dave’s laidback flow and tight lyricism, as well as the dope production throughout the mixtape. You can tell a lot of hard work was put into this one, so support the man and download below.

I PUT MY HEART INTO RECORDING EVERY LAST SONG ON THIS PROJECT, AND IN EVERY CITY I RECORDED IN I FELT LIKE I LEFT A PIECE OF ME BEHIND. THIS SHIT IS SOMETHING SPECIAL TO ME, AND I HOPE EVERY ONE WHO LISTENS CAN FEEL ME ON SOME KIND OF LEVEL. THANXXX IN ADVANCE TO EVERY SOUL THAT TELLS ANOTHER SOUL ABOUT MY MUSIC IN ANY SHAPE OR FORM, I DO THIS 4 YA’LL.

- RUFFIN

[Audio] Ayah and Slakah The Beatchild- “Keep Up” (Prod. Slakah The Beatchild)

What a pleasant surprise this was to wake up to; Slakah The Beatchild collaborated with Toronto songstress Ayah to bring us their latest song Keep Up. A nine minute and twenty eight second pleasure for our ears, this isn’t the same R&B/Soul music we have come to expect from Slakah and Ayah, Keep Up has an old school garage sound and just a few lyrics like “catch me if you can” sprinkled throughout the song. I love it and I’m curious to know what you think. Check out the song below on bandcamp and if you like support by purchasing it.

When we can, we love giving music away for free simply for the pure love and desire to spread real music, uninfluenced by a label, industry or pop culture, but if you like this one, please purchase it, thank you.
