Still Standing Album Artwork

A new album from ‘Sauga’s finest, J Shiltz! Every track is pretty dope so it’s pretty hard to choose a favourite after just one listen, so I guess I’ll have to just run it again, and again, and again!  Still Standing features production by Lancescape, Rich Kidd, Junia-T, Kev Brown, Relic and more. Vocal collaborations feature Ray Robinson, pHoenix Pagliacci, Rapper Big Pooh and more.

I’m really looking forward to interviewing J Shiltz on DD Radio next Tuesday –  make sure you lock it in!!

Lancecape is no stranger when it comes to beats and has steadily been perfecting his production skills for roughly 15 years. Having produced bangers for the likes of Frank N Dank, Rapper Big Pooh, Keith Murray, AG and Cannibus he has gained ground in the global beat circuit. Being in Detroit’s Red Bull ‘Big Tune’ beat battle Lancecape was able to grab the crowds respect, finish as a semifinalist and rub shoulders with hip hop heavyweights Black Milk, Jake One, Oh No and Alchemist.

For his first single, Lancecape is releasing a bass heavy tune called ‘Napalm’ accented with grungy guitar chops and his signature dirty drums. It features fellow Monolith member, Korry Deez, who is 1/3 of the Juno nominated and BET ‘Rated Next’ hip hop group Irs. He might be best known for his deadly verse on Kardinal’s ‘Ol’ Time Killin’ that had a video directed by Mr. X which received heavy BET and international rotation. Deez is known for touring with Kardinal, GODSMACK, Declaime, Jully Black and numerous others.

Lancecape is now finally ready to release his debut album ‘Always Fresh’ on January 8, 2013 with indy lo-fi label Future Science. They appreciate all the support and hope that you will watch, download, share, listen and most of all… ENJOY!

J Shiltz really impressed me last year with the Kev Brown produced track, Louder. We fully RINSED that track on DD Radio throughout last summer, so I’m glad to see him ready to hit ’em with another one for the summer, which promises to make even more of an impact. Partnering with Rich Kidd on the beat, Shiltz goes in hard once again – peep the track.

J Shiltz is the artist behind the Stylus Award winning single “Louder” backed by underground super producer Kev Brown and featuring verses from Grimace Love of Monolith and Notlam. J Shiltz is the same artist that brought the boom bap with “It’s On” produced by Toronto’s own Junia-T and featuring verses from Spek-Won and Rishaard. Right on the heels of that release came “Gimme That Flow” Shiltz’s first solo offering with accompanied Much Vibe featured music video. The 23 year old Sauga City native is now prepping for the release his first feature length album, scheduled to drop this coming fall… The first single from this upcoming project is sure to turn heads. Mixed and mastered by Lamounde Moore for Notlam Productions, “For The Cash” is that raw no holds barred hip-hop that the city has been waiting for. Shiltz goes in alongside veteran spitter Rishaard of the Monolith crew and Frank Nitt, the Detroit native widely known for comprising one half of the rap duo Frank n Dank. Over blazing production from Rich Kidd, the three lyricists deliver their sentiments on the driving force of the modern world; cash. It should be no surprise that the lines between the raw and the conscious are truly blurred on this thought provoking hip-hop banger. Stay on the lookout for the next single from J Shiltz titled “Gimme That Flow Pt. 2” produced by Lancecape featuring Nish Raawks, Junia-T, and Wio-K.
