CDN Movement this is an artist worth taking intrest in, following the success of his debut album ‘The Lover/Fighter Document LP‘, The Montreal native Jonathan Emile is back with the newest visual from the project, ‘Movement Music‘.
Directed and shot by King Richard, the video sees Jonathan explore and embrace two major segments of the 20th Century; a poignant reminder of the plight of the African diaspora in North America (through the Civil Rights movement until the present day) and the Cuban revolutionaries fighting to free their country from their oppressive government.
Focusing on the light and the dark sides of both himself and history, the juxtaposition of the modern day black man in America with the Latin American revolutionary in the basement make for a powerful statement. This is such an impressive concept that you rarely see in today music indusrty, True Canadian Movement we Salute!
Watch the video via YouTube below.
‘The Lover/Fighter Document LP‘ features guest appearances from the likes of Buckshot, Murs and Kendrick Lamar, with production courtesy of Aphyliated, Lo-Go, MIYEKOW and Jonathan himself.
CDN You can now purchase ‘The Lover/Fighter Document LP’ on iTunes and Bandcamp, and stream on Spotify. Trust me when I say it’s a Movement you should consider taking in.
CDN Movement hailing from Vancouver, BC Kenny Gourmet just releases a very smooth new studio album ‘Tilde’ on Uptown Paradise Records. It is available on all major streaming sites and a free download on Bandcamp. ‘Tilde or ~’ is the sound of a young artist with a polished sound. “I wanted to make a dark vibe rap album with Coldplay guitars,” he says.
‘~’ is a lifestyle rap album built from a mosaic of real life experiences from heartbreaks to late night adventures with the boys. It features guest verses from Brevner and Uptown Paradise affiliates, A and 3AM. Gourmet worked with a handful of producers from the Pacific Northwest; N.D.T., Brian Do, Jan Betsayda, dotken and Kaoboy, crafting the defining album of his young career. Kenny assisted on production by laying down electric guitar lines on each track. ‘Tilde’ was mastered by Grammy-nominated engineer, Greg “The Stuntman” Mindorff.
