VIA LINEZ – The High Expectations Mixtape

December 16, 2011

After a full week of being under the death grip of the flu, one of the best things to do is to dig into the aural goodies waiting for me – and this is one of them.  Via Linez has had me hooked since I first heard Full Time Squares. On his upcoming mixtape, High Expectations, Linez lays the foundation for a Christmas treat for hip hop heads everywhere – his album, Met Expectations.  On the upcoming LP, he partners with some of the best, and most respected hip hop producers in the city – including Tone Mason, Big Sproxx, Lyve, Royce Birth, Scam & Big Tweeze.

Fresh off of Headlining the sold-out 2nd Annual Canadian BeatBox Championship, Two of Toronto, Canada’s highly anticipated household Hip-Hop brands simultaneously release their respective LP’s but first give us a taste with a collaborative project; “The High Expectations Mixtape” (T.H.E. Mixtape) in conjunction with their Full Length LP’s. 

Re-acquaint yourself with Via Linez and HighDEF.

Via Linez X Met Expectations LP

With the success from his rookie project, “The Late Bloomer EP” in 2009, Via Linez has gained significant momentum and notoriety throughout the country. VIA’s new project has arrived. The “MET EXPECTATIONS” LP. This LP has already released 3 Singles and had created a phenomenal buzz throughout the Canadian scene with the DJ’s keeping him in national rotation. With powerhouse production from the likes of LYVE(HighDEF,Skyzoo,Ayah), BIG SPROXX (Supergoup -Freedom Writers), ROYCE BIRTH (Juno nominated producer), TONE MASON (Grammy nominated – DRAKE, JAY-Z etc), Legendary Toronto producer SCAM (Dan-e-o, Concrete Mob) and BIG TWEEZE (of F.A.T THURSDAY), the album has more than enough heat to meet and exceed the expectations many have.

Speaking of LYVE – peep this project:


Many trio’s and groups have weak links. Then there’s Toronto’s infamous individuals Lyve, CocoDyce and PRESS who make up the squad, HighDEF. Their Debut album “The High End Theory” is nothing short of quality music.Super-producer, LYVE has been on the forefront of the Canadian Music Scene for a sometime now. With projects under his belt such as the producer of TONA’s DIRECT DEPOSIT LP, and production credentials for TANYA MORGAN, SKYZOO, AYAH, NISH RAAWKS and LINDO P, just to name a few it’s more than obvious why LYVE is now one of Canada’s best. CHRIS AK / “CoCo Dyce”, the visual mastermind behind numerous visuals such as Jessica Kaya’s “Fake it”, Tona’s “Fast Pace”, and collaborative joint “CERTIFIED” feat. VIA LINEZ, PRESS and ELEMENT. Not to mention Dyce is one-half of the LVD (Lyve vs Dyce) Production duo so he’s has proved to be a solidified triple-threat….yes, if you’re not up on him yet, he’s a talented and recognized lyricist too.   PRESS…Cool, Calm and Classic.This noterized emcee has been working on his solo LP while attaining a buzz in Toronto like no other since dropping his verse in “REAL LYVE S#IT!” feat. ADAM BOMB in 2010.  Bringing forth his wordplay and savy fashion-sense topped with an impeccable showmanship showcased in this HighDEF project, PRESS is without question one of Canada’s best kept secrets.

Keep up with Via Linez
