Vancouver flavour

It`s 6:30 am right now and for some reason I feel that I should throw some Vancity content in your direction...

FattSnak - Beer Day (Situations)

Snak The Ripper

Fatt Matt

Lenny Diko
- Get Lifted

(Calgary) f/ Jeff Spec (Vancouver) - Gamble

Moka Only - Search


Underground check

Don't you love it when you hear a track that just takes hold of you and you just zone on it? This cut from Reef The Lost Cauze's upcoming album "A Vicious Cycle" did it for me the other day.

Reef The Lost Cauze - I Wonder

It's produced by Marco Polo, one of the, if not the best Canadian producers. Actually scratch that, he's just one of the best producers out right now in my opinion. His album, "Port Authority" is sick, check that out too if you haven't already.

URP Radio... like a muhfucka!

Big show this week... interviews with Houston veteran Devin The Dude and Boston's own Big Shug. Devin's new album, "Landing Gear", dropped on the 7th of this month, and Shug will be releasing "The Otherside Of The Game" on November 4th. Check out the podcast here. Here are some cuts I've been feeling from each album:

Devin The Dude - Can't Make It Home

Big Shug - Like a Muhfucka

DJ Premier blesses Big Shug with another nasty beat. His new shit should be bangin... I'm looking forward to it.
