We don’t know much about the post-punk band named Perfect Dark, but we do know they’re Toronto-based and part of a larger collective called 2000 Sound. They just dropped their debut single “Submerged”. Listen below…

In celebration of 25 years in the music industry, Hennessy Canada & 1LOVETO sat down to reminisce with legendary Toronto DJ Starting From Scratch. For years, Mark Gagnon aka SFS has kept Toronto entertained behind two turntables, whether it be in the club, on the radio, on tour with Russell Peters or at a good old fashion house party. But, many of us only know Scratch from the music he plays, and for that reason we’ve put together this interview to highlight everything from what it was like carrying crates of records to play a party, to how he got his DJ name. Press Play!

Tonight’s the official kick off of the Hennessy Artistry series with DJ Starting From Scratch along with some of Toronto’s most notable artists performing live including: Kardianl Offishall, Melanie Fiona, Choclair, Glenn Lewis and many more. Join us tonight at Tattoo (567 Queen St West) at 7pm to witness history in the making.

P. Reign – “Rich” (Official Video)

Toronto’s own P. Reign just dropped his brand new video for “Rich,” directed by Zac Facts and produced by MegaMan.

Yukon Blonde just dropped a brand new video for “I Wanna Be Your Man”, directed by Mac Boucher (the mastermind behind “Saturday Night” video).

Boucher says, the MuchFACT supported video “playfully makes fun of the male gaze and traditionalism. Satanic symbolism and the de-robing of religious uniform denounces the role of some patriarchal figurehead. The chopping of wood and digging of holes represents violent penetration compared to the rhythmic movements in the peach orchard… it’s supposed to be a video that looks beautiful, is edited with humour, and makes absolutely zero sense to the passive observer.”

Check these guys out on their Canadian tour stopping in Toronto on November 20th at Massey Hall.

As we prepare for this years Hennessy Artistry: The Art Of Blending, we wanted to take a few minutes to look back and share what made last years main event so special. Hennessy Artistry is built upon the idea of fusing different sounds, genres, instruments and artists together to create a unique mix and blend of artistry. Last year, together with Hennessy we brought together legendary hip hop producer Just Blaze and Toronto trap/edm trio Keys N Krates.

Watch what happens during soundcheck when Just Blaze and Keys N Krates are in the same room!

This year Hennessy Artistry is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Toronto’s own DJ Starting from Scratch with two special events happening on Thursday, November 19th and Friday, November 20th. Stay tuned for details…

Scouring the internet for new music has never been so easy, but yet hard at the same time. There’s some incredible talent out there, but sifting through the endless inventory of songs that take up space on the net seems to be a never ending job.

In our efforts to discover some home-grown talent, we came across local songstress and Remix Project participant Lemon, with her latest release (about 1 month ago), entitled “Your Friends” (Interlude). Press play below!

Listen to more music from Lemon HERE.

One of Toronto’s most under-rated and unheard of bands is Unbuttoned. They continue to impress us with their music, visuals, and live shows. We’ve been blogging about them since 2013 and we can’t wait for the latest EP project “Minute Lasting” to drop. If you can spare 18 minutes, sit back, relax, turn down the lights and watch this short film accompanied by the sounds of Unbuttoned.
