[Feature] Don’t Sleep On Me: Tech Rymes

Photo credit to BRMNFOTO The Come Up Show is excited to announce a new series starting this September: each Monday, we'll be featuring a new artist under our "Don't Sleep On Me" banner. The aim is to shine the spotlight on artists making moves who we feel deserve more attention than they're getting. In short, it's the essence of what we as a blog have always striven to provide: a bridge between good music and eager listeners. With that said, we're proud to present the first artist in our series: Tech Rymes. Hit the skip to read our full debut feature. Name: Oluwatobi Ajibolade Hometown: Brampton, ON Influences: Nas, Kool G Rap, Jay-Z, Cam'ron, Kanye West, Drake, J. Cole, Pusha T Sounds Like: Hip-hop fused with electronica. "It's a mix [...] One of the artists I really like is Imogen Heap. She's a singer, and she makes her instruments out of anything around her: a clicking sound, the snap of a finger, the crackle of fire. I just try to be as versatile as I can, and that's what's important to me." Latest Release: Flawed & Strong (August 2013) Must-Listen Tracks: "Flawed" and "Keep Frontin"

[Audio] Canadian Winter ft. Haolin Munk & Sara London – “Choose One” (Prod: Ka$hkaval)

Canadian Winter just dropped this brand new single, "Choose One", off The Snowball Effect LP. Fellow Hamiltonian Ka$hkaval handles the jazzy production on this one, as Haolin Munk provides live instrumentation, and Sara London takes part in the interspersed dialogue. As frontman Kobi Annobil describes it, "Choose One" is an "ode to (a lack of) patience in relationships." If you haven't heard of Canadian Winter before, make sure to go back and check out their Original 6 EP (and my personal favourite track, "Get The Show On The Road"). Stream and download "Choose One" below.

[EP] P.R – “Moment In Time”

Australian producer P.R recently released Moment In Time, a really dope seven-track EP featuring appearances from the likes of Blu, Skyzoo, Substantial and Cise Starr. This is the first time we've ever shared anything by P.R - and the first time I've ever taken his music in - so allow me to provide you with a little background on him. Born Pedram Rouzbehani, the Sydney-based producer admits he draws his influence from the likes of DJ Premier, J Dilla, 9th Wonder, Kanye West, Alchemist, and - perhaps most notably, in my opinion - Nujabes. That influence shows on Moment In Time, even in P.R's choice of guest artists: it's worth noting that both Substantial and Cise Starr have collaborated numerous times with the late Japanese producer. P.R is best known for fusing jazz, soul, and funk into a style that he describes as "feel good music," and with that in mind, it's only right that we feature him here on The Come Up Show. Personal favourites off the EP are "Set The Scene" (side note: it's not often that Skyzoo gets outrapped, but I think Substantial had the better verse here), "Long Walk", "Next Destination", and "Missing Years".

[Mixtape] Lil Wayne – Dedication 5

Ever since I listened to No Ceilings, I knew I was going to be a Lil Wayne fan for life. There's just something about his charisma and presence on a track that sets him apart from any other rapper on the planet. Yeah, I know, he wasn't nominated for any awards or didn't perform this year but I think that just gives you another reason to listen to Dedication 5. He even tweeted himself that he's going to work harder for the fans and after hearing Dedication 5, honestly, I feel that the 2008 Lil Wayne is back. To truly appreciate Lil Wayne, you have to listen to his bars because that's what he's known for. I still think he's one of the wittiest rappers out there but hey, take a listen and prove me wrong.
