Once again curated by Cee and Tiffany Alexis, the mixtape takes you on a journey that perfectly complements the most romantic night of the year. With synth pop from UK alt R&B baritone Kwabs to trap soul from Bryson Tiller, smooth future soul from IAMNOBODI to reggae-infused rock from Joss Stone, minimal indie pop from Banks to moving slow jams from Aussie Jarryd James, thug love songs from Sean Price (RIP) to island vibes from Jonathan Emile, 'The Valentine's Day Mixtape Volume 8' has something for every taste.

On Wednesday August 15th, I finally dropped my debut music video as a solo artist. Made in conjunction with the folks at Horse Bliss, we knocked out the video for my first solo cut 'Pot Of Gold' in a few hours in Toronto, Canada, and I'm stoked how dope it came out. We hit more than 400 views in like 5 days, which was amazing. Thanks to everyone who made this happen - Dave Dunville, Josh Telfer, Notion, Tiffany Alexis, Iskander Ben Amor, Eric, Shauna, Karsten and the rest of the crew. Watch 'Pot Of Gold (Horse Bliss Exclusive)' at the Horse Bliss Vimeo page.
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.
Sigh. Once again, my bad on the extremely delayed post... This is the first 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.
