My special guest today is from Halifax, Nova Scotia, my guy Quake Matthews, this is his fifth appearance...
When we made this track I was listening to a lot of Roc Marciano and I noticed how sometimes he would just loop different parts of a sample and not even add drums. I went with that raw stripped down sound when we did this. QuakeIt's week two of Quake's series Myth Monday's, last week we shared Puffy 4 The Knight and today we present "Red Wine" featuring Laura Roy. Quake called The Come Up Show Radio this past Saturday from Fairview, Halifax and told us the Myth Monday series is something that was necessary since he has so many songs ready to go! Since music is so saturated and attention spans are shortened, Quake will be releasing EP's, singles, videos, throughout the year in between albums so expect more of him on The Come Up Show. If this is the first time you're checking for Quake make sure to read our interview and to definitely peep his latest album Corrado Take a listen to "Red Wine" and tell me what you think in the comment section.
Halifax producer/emcee Cam Smith just dropped the visuals to "Drift Away", off his free project Ocean Blue (which you can download here). On the self-produced "Drift Away", Smith is joined by Quake on a solid guest verse and Earl B on the chorus. Check out the visuals to "Drift Away" below.
Kayo just released the first set of visuals off his brand-new project The Escape Movement today, teaming up with The Search partner Quake Matthews for "So Gone" (produced by Chris Noxx). This release comes just days after Kayo finished several tour dates with Snoop Dogg in Western Canada. If you haven't given The Escape Movement a listen yet, be sure to check it out. For more on each artist, check out our interviews with Kayo and Quake. Check out the visuals to "So Gone" below.

Interview by: Martin Bauman If you haven't checked out Quake Matthews' album The Book of Matthew yet, do yourself a favour and download it right now. The Fairview, Nova Scotia artist is responsible for my personal favourite album of 2012 so far. After making a name in the rap battle circuit and getting a lot of attention from The Search last year with Kayo, Quake Matthews is on the cusp of becoming a dominant voice in Canadian hip-hop, having worked with Royce Da 5'9", Freeway, and Termanology already. The Come Up Show caught up with Quake Matthews last week to talk about The Book of Matthew, working with Freeway, and how he got his name, among other things. Hit the skip to check out the interview.
