Clayjay – Ride feat. TOBi

#NewMusic from San Francisco, USA x Toronto, Canada

Clayjay is a DJ/Producer from San Francisco, US. TOBi is a rapper from Toronto, Canada. Despite them being from different sides of the border, they’re the best of friends and have been touring together. They’ve just released a new track ‘Ride’.

The production from Clayjay is full and beefy at the bottom end. TOBi’s delivery is laid back but still crisp and on point. What a team!

Daphni – Hey Drum [Quellequs Takeover]

#NewMusic from Dundas, Canada x London, England

Day four of the Quellequs takeover on Dash ‘n’ Verve and what a treat we have today. Dan Snaith a.k.a Caribou a.k.a Daphni dropped the surreal tribal beat meets dance floor break epic ‘Hey Drum’ earlier this year.

We remember catching Caribou live with Quellequs a few years back at The Warehouse Project. This kid has some moves, ask him to show you some time.

Quellequs has one more pick for us this week, so make sure you return in a couple of days for that. To listen to all his picks and previous contributions to Dash ‘n’ Verve click your little left mouse button thing here.

Daphni ‘Hey Drum’ is out now on Jiaolong.

olive b – no(w)here

#NewMusic from Toronto, Canada

Toronto based “singer, songwriter, freestyler” olive b has presented a pretty sweet debut mixtape; ‘no(w)here’ for our aural pleasure. Vocally the tracks range from heavily effected (see ‘stay the night’) to naked exposure, as felt on ‘for you’. Each different style showcases olive b’s versatility as an artist. Sonically you’ll travel through a night of psychedelic swirls on ‘journey’ then later find yourself gliding on the atmospheric mellow wave of ‘photographs’.

olive b ‘no(w)here’ is out now.

Spotted on House of Lords.
