Artists > Backburner

Formed by frequent collaborators Fresh Kils, Uncle Fester, Dexter Doolittle, and Process in Halifax, NS at the turn of the millennium, over the years Backburner has grown to include 20+ MCs, DJs and producers across Canada, and even one in Japan. They’re a who’s who of the most prolific independent hip hop artists in the country. Named for their habit to start new projects before finishing the current ones, with projects often left to simmer on the back burner, they have managed to compile a large catalogue of releases as both solo artists and in small groups that often overlap. And when they can, the whole collective come together like a giant-size Voltron to create albums as Backburner, resulting in a mixtape, a compilation, and now three crew albums.

Canada’s Backburner Crew is a who’s who of the most prolific independent hip-hop artists in the country.
