YehMe2 Live in Toronto!

It seems fitting that YehMe2 plays his first solo Toronto show on Friday the 13th.  We've been waiting for this one for a long time, and it's not like this is the first time we've seen him live in Toronto.  Formerly one half of Flosstradamus, Josh Young tore up Fort York for a Mad Decent Block Party, The Bass Tent at Digital Dreams, and Danforth Music Hall.  YehMe2 is a project he started by challenging himself to make a beat a day, leading to his Steal This Mixtape.  This summer he embarked on a similar challenge leading to STMT2, and then came rumours of a tour.

YehMe2 recently took to Australia for a short tour, and performed in New York along side Troyboi.  The photo above comes from that show, taken by Maximilian Hontz.  There's an incredible feeling of positive energy that comes through from his music, and that is clearly amplified live.  You can get tickets to see him live on Friday, October 13th at the Velvet Underground hereClick here to check out Steal This Mixtape 2, and check the links to more YehMe2 online below!


Coming Soon: Kaiydo at the Velvet Underground

Kaiydo is definitely one of the most buzzworthy artists following SXSW.  The 19 year old made waves with the release of his track 'Fruit Punch', and it continues to rack up a seemingly endless amount of plays.  On top of the single he's got an independently released album coming later this year.  For now he's planning to embark on tour from Washington DC to Hollywood, California in April.  That tour includes a stop in Toronto on April 22nd at the Velvet Underground. 

Get tickets here and get 'Fruit Punch' on iTunes

Preview: AraabMuzik & Nadus at Velvet Underground 2/13

The NBA all star weekend is bringing countless events to the city along with it, but this one is something special.  The grand opening of The Velvet Underground is rung in with an incredible show.  AraabMuzik and Nadus are bringing their acclaimed tour to Toronto, and at a time when the city is buzzing with energy.  It seems fitting that 2 artists who continually redefine music and create new sounds would usher in a new musical venue in the city.  

AraabMuzik's 'Goon Loops' and 'King' EP's are new, cutting edge releases.  The producer utilizes an MPC in his live show like no one else can.  He's developed a name as an unpredictable force in music, blurring the lines between hip hop and electronic music with grace and confidence.  Nadus' deluxe edition of 'Broke City' brings his incredible music to the world in new, unexpected forms.  The drum free version of 'Sharpe James' is met with remixes by artists like DJ Sliink and 2 new tracks.  The sound of Newark is reaching the world through Nadus and his crew, and his live sets show without a doubt this is one of the most innovative artists out there today...

Get your tickets to see AraabMuzik and Nadus at the Velvet Underground in Toronto on February 13th.
