Mistah Exquisite

Matthew Laidlow is certainly an exquisite young man. Declaring that as the word he would use to describe himself since his high-school days, Exquisite has been biding his time writing out his material and properly orchestrating his come up. The 20 year old rapper has been taking things serious lately recently as he has dropped which I believe to be his first official mix tape “The MasterPlan”. It seem as if Exquisite is designing his own blueprint. Could he be the next Jay-z coming out of Toronto? That a good question; you can be the judge and listen to The MasterPlan yourself.

Exquisite doesn’t stop just at dropping a hot mix tape. It seems Mistsah Exquisite has established his own music group, Souled Out Entertainment, which I’m sure will have artist with the same type of go getter attitude as Mistah Exquisite himself. And not to mention some of the music videos Exquisite has done for the songs off his MasterPlan mix tape. I’ve just seen the Video for the single “Abracadabra” and in my opinion for and independent artist, the video in great; nice plot to it and proper use of props and location as well. His other videos “Dats How I Do Dat” and “Road To Gold” are of the similar category of “Abracadabra” in the sense that the videos are definitely a great reflection and even have that essence of independent artists trying to come up. They all capture the determination of up and coming artist here in the GTA and that’s what I like.

Make sure you check out Mistah Exquisites mix tape “The MasterPlan” and check out his music videos as well.

Angela & the Plaitwrights

A sweet young lady with a beautiful voice is how I would best describe Angela Abrenica. I was lucky enough to have the pleasure of meeting the young singer and right then and there I could tell that she was serious about her music. Her voice brings the presence of essence to any song that shes on. In addition to her talent in singing, Angela is a talented song writer and does a pretty good job at playing the acoustic guitar; I think its safe to say shes got what labels are looking for, but that's just my opinion. Of course there is still room for growth; I'd say the eighteen year old singer/song writer is on the right path and making sure that it is acquired. Angela's affiliation with her group "Plaitwrights" benefits her by getting her name out there as well as helping her tap in to her potential; as you can see, chemistry is embodied throughout the many songs they have together.

Have a look at Angela and her group "Plaitwrights" in the newly released song;

Local artist IQ starts with a beat and finishes with a bang and he's really living it. Representing for Toronto’s very own, music producer and rapper known as I.Q. is the look out guy of the city. From his CD, “10 Seconds”, his first single, “Late Night” featuring another Toronto based rapper “The Maze”, has been one of the most anticipated tracks in the underground scene and making its way to the spotlight. Currently in the studio and finishing up the album, he already has recorded the second single which is for sure to go viral crazy. It’s for sure to get the media buzzing with his prolific lyrics and style as well as the hard hitting beats which collaborates well together to form something none heard of in the city or really in the industry. He's got his own team and is building it carefully with promising individuals; the name Insomniac Music Group, remember that name. Toronto seems to be the motivation and starting point of the journey for I.Q. as he continues to hit the studio and create music we’ve been long waited for. Originality is the key for this young artist/producer as he continues to create. Guess we will have to wait to see what’s to come.

Have a look at IQ's single Late night featuring his affiliate the Maze, also check out his blog and twitter for up coming songs such as Marty McFly featuring The maze and Greed.
