J Rawls’ Polar Entertainment imprint presents “Da Call Out”, the new single from Heresy, an all-female group consisting of two-time Grammy nominee Monie Love, North Carolina rapper Carolina Dirty, Columbus OH’s Dominique Larue and MyVerse from Orlando. Produced by Mista Lawnge of Black Sheep, “Da Call Out” will appear on Heresy’s forthcoming self-titled EP.

“In a time where many music genres are suffering in an array of areas, my wish was to put together something seldom heard of in organic Hip Hop today, that being a group,” says Monie about the project. “I wanted to further push the envelope with the neglected idea of a FEMALE group. Thus the birth of Heresy.” The Heresy EP drops August 14 on Polar Entertainment.

After dropping the ethereal single “Luxury”, Montreal based emcee/singer Hua Li presents her debut project Za Zhong EP on the newly formed indie label Art No Love. The 4 track EP is completely produced by electronic producer Gloze with a solo feature from fellow Montrealien Zyhkeira .  The EP tethers between dreamy, hazy backdrops while Hua Li flips back and forth with singing and rapping about personal relationships, after party scenarios and then some. Pretty experimental but I think its worthy of your time. Just keep an open mind while bumping this.

Hit the play button, get the Ep via the link below and bare your thoughts in the comment section.

Cop the EP HERE

Celebrate with Hua Li 化力& Gloze as they launch their brand new Za Zhong EP, a 4-track trip through cloudy day party tracks, breakup anthems and coy disses.

Hua Li 化力 is the unapologetic alter-ego of Montreal-based multi-disciplinary performing artist Peggy Hogan. Hua Li’s unique vision of neo-soul, hip-hop, jazz sophistication and electronic glitz has had audiences stunned since her debut in 2012.

J’von’s playing around joints are better than your try hard joints, seriously.

J’von drops a short loosie called ‘meh its chill i guess’. At a minute and a half the MC fits more cleverly crafted bars in than many MCs can hope to fit in their entire project. Enjoy this short heater and it’s replay value as it might take a few plays through to catch all the lyrics.

Detroit beat smith Foul Mouth gives us a myriad of soul from feel good to struggle and back.

If a beat tape is only as good as it’s weakest track, Soul Louis is as sturdy as they come. The same could be said for Producers I Know in general, if they drop it pay attention. I’m going through on first listen and each track I’m declaring my favorite but for the sake of decisiveness I’ll settle on “Hello & Goodbye”. The tape produces a wide arrange of feels, one minute its the ambience of a blues club and the next you’re cracking a brew and grilling, it’s everywhere and singular simultaneously with soul samples being the mainstay. Def worth a listen and monetary support as well. Make sure to check the visual and be on the look out over on PIK bandcamp page for limited edition cassettes coming as well.
