 New Wax reporter Tarick Glancy spoke with singer Moses Musiq, whose R&B songs are influenced by the various styles he listened to growing up in the nineties. Moses has collaborated with many local artists in the hip-hop and reggae scenes, and performed at numerous events and venues around the city.

Art of Fresh is MC D.O. (best known for setting a Guinness World Record by freestyle rapping for over 8 hours and 45 minutes) and producer Slakah The Beatchild (a Juno award-winner for contributing to Divine Brown’s 2008 Love Chronicles). Currently based in Toronto the two met in Sarnia, growing up in different eras of hip-hop, as showcased on their own solo-records. Together, their songs mix beats from Spanish, Electro, Pop, and Rap music; it’s like listening to different music with the same style of lyrics.

Music needs to do this more often to encourage people from other cultures or from another race to listen. Sometimes people don’t listen to hip-hop because of the aggressive beats and lyrics – they just can’t take it. – Juan Torres

“Alive”

This hip-hop “super-group,” hailing from Montreal, is a 9-member international (Algeria, Argentina, Chile, France, & Haiti) and multilingual crew. They really hit that ‘multilingual’ part home incorporating 2-3 languages into pretty much every song, as well as a bit of patois thrown in for good measure (no Jamaicans in the group). The amalgamation of cultures adds an interesting texture.

But Nomadic Massive sounds like a Canadian hip-hop album, which 9 times out of 10 isn’t a good thing and, unfortunately, this record sticks to the rule. The production quality is fine but the actual product does nothing for me. Lyrically it’s run-of-the-mill (at least the parts that I understand). Dare I say this might as well be background music for one of our crappy TV shows? Consider it said. – Candice B.
