Being a working DeeJay has its perks. One being first hand on music and upcoming artists. Well most of the work is done by myself while seeking out new sounds and artists, but I also get 10-20 emails a day from around the world with new music from signed artists and unsigned. I got to be honest: most of the unsigned music is either from a copy cat artist, too much auto-tune, really bad audio quality, and or but not limited to your next door neighbor and his at home studio aka really bad news. Step ya game up playa. If you put in the effort to craft and find your sound, it will pay off. Trust.

One of those emails contained a song titled “move tha crowd”. At first I left it alone for about a week on my desk top. I was hoping it was something I can create into a party break for the club. The name of the song being a hint. Well it wasn’t but after listening to it twice, once for the production and the second time for the lyrics, I thought it was dope! I added it to the hip hop play list and started playing it at gigs. After listening to it a couple more times then a couple (haha), I wanted to research the artist, WEB. From there I linked to Web’s myspace page which contained more songs. Found he was part of a crew called The Central Soul. Searched for mixtapes and listened to some songs from the uploads on datpiff.com. This dude was nice! No joke. And that comes from someone who listen’s to everything that he finds with a music sound. Web and “Move Tha Crowd” was on my mental list of top unsigned artists I’ve heard from Canada. Yes Canada. Vancouver to be exact. This was around the same time I only knew Drake from the acting gig on Degrassi. He was the kid on the wheel chair with issues at school with girls he broke hearts of and his dad at home. I think. Well it was the only time I could bond with my little sister. I digress.

In Move Tha Crowd Web was talking about everything I was thinking about. Stupid copy cat rappers, hip hop being claimed dead, growing up on hip hop and so on. The lyrics were on point. Flow reminded me of an adaptation from devoted fan to artist. Direct to the point lines parked on a crazy production. The track went from my gig play list to my personal play list, easy. And I’ve had to make copies for buddies riding with me, and those asking for copies at the club or parties. Bottom line: track wasn’t what I expected from a Canadian, American Indian, Unsigned Artist.

I added some small effects to the song but kept it intact. Take a listen an comment.
