My sis L’oqenz never ceases to amaze, teach and transform.  Okayplayer has just featured a project she produced (under her production alias NON aka niteowlnaps), based on the Downtown81 Soundtrack starring Jean-Michel Basquiat.


The Basquiat inspired artwork attached is a 3.5 x 3.5ft painting created by a young, talented and brilliant artist named, Felipe Velasquez.  Peep the audio below and follow her on Twitter at @NiteOwlNaps :


It’s been a long time since I got to put it down in the club with one of my fav DJs (and all-around good people), DJ Channel Nine. On Saturday April 25th at The Parkdale Drink, he and DJ Tabs are making room for me in the DJ booth, and I for one can’t wait! This one is definitely for the grown and sexy. The club is consistently rammed with people wanting to have a good time, so with Spring officially in the air, it just may be the weekend to take the party to the streets. Come through!

Some New audio edibles from the duo of Junia-T and Lord Quest, known as ‘Chef’s Plate’. Junia-T has been on my list of fav Toronto MCs for a minute, and Lord Quest is just plain dope, so the two of them together is a recipe for goodness. Peep the official blurb down below, but make sure you take time to check out their Souncloud page, download and enjoy… 

TORONTO – After a long hiatus, Chef’s Plate is finally back with another remix, “Poured Up”. Mix and mastered in Quest’s kitchen, the track fuses Rihanna’s “Pour It Up” with adlibs from Kendrick’s Swimming Pools. Stream/download the track above.

“It’s impossible to listen to this and not want to get up and dance. The energy is too infectious!!!” said LordQuest.
