Sensational x The Dirty Sample – The Spot Rocker

Very excited to finally be releasing the new album from Sensational, produced by our in-house producer The Dirty Sample…

Groundbreaking Brooklyn MC Sensational returns with a new album produced by veteran Calgary producer The Dirty Sample. For this unique collaborative experience, The Dirty Sample serves up a selection of his dusty, cinematic beats for Sensational’s distinct chunk o’ bliss swagger, his delivery both laidback and stylin’. The lyrics are heavy with braggadocio that revolves around his weed and drink intake, his drip, and his savvy with the ladies. Joining Sensational on The Spot Rocker are Ol’ Gorilla Bones, the latest MC alias of The Dirty Sample, and Hawd Gankstuh Rappuh MCs Wid Ghatz members Guy Albino and Flybot Van Damn dropping their first over-the-top raps in 20+ years. The Spot Rocker is an album for the musically adventurous.

AzraelRapsGood x The Dirty Sample – One Size Fits All

New single and video from AzraelRapsGood x The Dirty Sample…

On second single “One Size Fits All”, AzraelRapsGood invokes the hip hop mantra most associated with Too Short: get in where you fit in. “I’ve never blended in with the mix”, raps Azrael as he demonstrates his desire for individuality. Rather than go with the flow, he just says no to the pre-packaged, commodified way our lives (and music) are structured nowadays. Azrael’s anti fake it to make it sentiment is delivered over a chill, moody beat from The Dirty Sample, his plodding boom bap drums combined with piano, violin and bass, plus this one repeating inquisitive Scooby Doo-like “huh?” sample that is way too infectious. “One Size Fits All” proves AzraelRapsGood x The Dirty Sample might be weird, but they think you normal people are even weirder.

The accompanying video takes up a line from the song—“stuck inside feeling like an outsider”—and runs with it. Filmed in Toronto by MadMax and produced by ARGVidz, the video has the Vancouver, BC MC watching the world pass by outside while inside intercut with him wandering around on the outside. Always all alone.

The Word Is Bond reviews “Breathe”

“The backdrop is perfect for Fortunato’s introspective and positive lyrics that implore us that we all can be free from being caught in the modern-day entrapments by just taking time out to breathe and look at things from a nuanced perspective.” – The Word Is Bond

Fortunato & Sean One’s “Breathe” out now!

The first single from Fortunato & Sean One’s upcoming album, Blue Collar 2

“Breathe”, the first single from Fortunato & Sean One’s follow up to their collaboration album Blue Collar, is an ode to hip hop and the artist’s journey within it, touching on and challenging various hip hop cliches along the way. From “we’re getting paper, getting paid” to “without the money and greed we can really be free”. Fortunato’s vocals are chill and laidback over Sean One’s smooth, minimal production combining piano with boom bap drums. “Breathe” reveals itself as a mature single from a confident, experienced rap vet.
