March 2013 DFE update
Time for an update of what's going on in DFE-land. First up, the picture to the left. We're excited to announce the upcoming first single from our 4th full-length DFE album "Mission Statement" will feature Sadat X of Brand Nubian. Stay tuned!
Next up, to all our friends in Banff... get ready for the invasion of the DFE Cold Chillin' Party, coming on Thursday, April 11th to Wild Bills. After rockin' the house in Fernie, we're excited to bring this format that combines the acclaimed DFE live show with a DJ party featuring Cosm pumping out the dancefloor bangers. Joining us in Banff will be young Calgary phenom, AYE.
DJ Cosm is continuing to spark the Calgary live hip hop scene, evidenced by the ongoing Beat Street Battles West series he has organized with True Rhythm and now with the new Calgary Hip Hop Karaoke night, being held at Commonwealth Bar & Stage. The night is co-hosted, by Cosm, Apeface and Metawon. Be sure to check out the first edition on Monday March 25th.
Finally, lets get to some new music, (and 2013 will be a year where there is tons of new music). First off a brand new collaboration between DFE and Lyon, France emcee Raistlin called "The Heartbeat" that has just been released off of his new EP... peep the track below. After that, you'll see a video of Teekay flowing over a banger from German producer Rice Master Yen called "Gudrun", written, recorded and filmed all during last weekend.
YES. The long-awaited "DFE vs. DEF EP" is here!!! A free (or pay-what-you-want) EP with six fresh DFE tracks produced by Def-Chap out of Saskatoon. Guest appearances by Infinito 2017, Joanna Borromeo and DJ Reflects. Download, like, share and enjoy the EP below.
Teekay has just dropped a 5-track instrumental EP, the TKTV Beat Tape. Each track samples a theme from a classic TV show, including The Cosby Show, WKRP, The Love Boat, Star Trek and Who's The Boss. Check it out below or at teekay.bandcamp.com
Track of the Day on CBC Radio 3
Much props go out to Vish Khanna at CBC Radio 3 for featuring our song "2-Man Team" as the Track of the Day last Tuesday Feb. 22nd. Check out the feature below, which has some great commentary regarding the late Guru from Gang Starr who is mentioned and sampled in the song. You can download the Time & Space Tour mixtape on the link to the right as well- the tour just wrapped up last night in Fernie and we are pleased to say that overall it was a success!
