Jonathan Emile – Movement Music

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.

Move to Canada If Donald Trump Wins?

CDN Movement we may have some new friends locating into our country if Donald Trump wins the American Presidential Election. Many Americans are seriously thinking about leaving their country if this play out in Trump’s favor.

Rob Calabrese sees this as an opportunity to solve Cape Breton Island’s population crisis, Calabrese works at 101.9 The Giant, a pop radio station on Cape Breton Island, a rocky outcrop at the northern tip of Nova Scotia. The island’s population was about 136,000 in 2011, but that number has been steadily plummeting, in part because the island’s steel mill closed a decade and a half ago. “Our population is aging, and it’s shrinking by about 1,000 people every year,” Calabrese tells Rolling Stone. “It’s projected to do that for the next 20 years unless it can get turned around.”

By his count, there were more than 2,000 inquiries in the first three days. “I’d say about 90 percent of them are genuine inquiries about making a life in Cape Breton, and a lot of them say regardless of who wins.” Most were anxious to escape Trump, but several, he says, feared a Hillary Clinton presidency.
