Due to the fantastic response from Cee's music video for 'Comin' Home', from 'The Indie Experiment Volume 1' project, The Movement Fam decided to completely remix and remaster the entire series and rerelease the three mixtapes with a new, bigger sound, thanks to Notion's amazing engineering work.

The Indie Experiment
'Comin' Home' was shot in locations around Toronto in the summer of 2012 with Dave Dunville and J Mitchel Reed. The track is lifted from Cee's 'The Indie Experiment Volume 1' mixtape, as his ode to both his homes (Melbourne and Toronto) over City & Colour's haunting gem of a tune.
Cee speaks on his feelings after selling everything he owned to move to Canada to pursue his dreams with his music. Much love to Josh Telfer, Clem Ryan, Notion and of course Tiffany Alexis for all their help with the filming of the video, and huge props to editor Andrew Howart for putting it all together.
Yeah, son. So in the span of four months, I managed to drop three volumes of my debut mixtape series and create a piece of art with both the music and the visuals that were solely conceived of by myself (of course with the help of Nosh [mixing/mastering], Josh [photography/art] and Tiff [model/support] to make it happen). I'm really proud of this shit. I've only ever been in groups since I started recording and performing 10 years ago (goddamn, time flies eh), so to go solo was a huge step for me. This third and final volume sees the culmination of the 27 songs of the series, completing The Indie Experiment. There's a bit of a mix of tunes on this one; about my girl, my city, my art, my stories, some shit talking, and some truth. I think it caps it off nicely.
Yes, bitches! Volume 2 out this. For those who ain't know, this is the second volume of a three volume series of mixtapes where I try to do something that I haven’t heard anyone else do; rap over indie rock/electro/dubstep/alternative/folk/indie songs, while leaving the original tune intact and integrating my rhymes with the theme of the tracks. It’s also my first ever solo mixtape release, so I hope y’all dig it.
My project is called 'The Indie Experiment'. Over the last couple of years, I picked up the guitar again (I've been playing on and off since I was 9) and discovered rock/indie/electro/alternative music, and it had a huge affect on me. I decided that I wanted to undertake my first ever solo project by adding my vocals to some of my favourite indie tunes, but instead of chopping the songs up like most rappers tend to do, I left the original song intact and placed my vocals around those of the artist, creating a whole new dichotomy for the song.
