On Saturday, July 30th, Step'D Up, Oh Snap!, and All Blown Up will have you feelin MASSIVE bass vibrations all night when the one and only ESKMO touches down in Edmonton! Along with E-Towns very own glitch hop duo the Knight Riderz and up-and-coming Future Roots bass man Elliot Mars!
Eskmo has been slaying crowds around the world and has been in the game for more than 10 years now. The last time he was here in Edmonton he absolutely murdered it and I personally coulden't wait to have him back! Now hes coming with fresh bangers and beautifully produced originals that will have you skanking hard on the Starlite Room's dancefloor!
Check out this DOPE video that will fuck your brain sideways :p
One of my personal fav's!
Peep the badmans soundcloud for more!
Can't forget about our local favorites, the Knight Riderz! Fresh off their American tour and armed with an arsenal of new bangers from their recent EP release plus a collection of unreleased tunes to get your crunk on! These guys never fail to bring the heat with their live sets and show no signs of slowing down with their unique sound and dirty, gritty basslines!
Samples' number 2 pick for Top Glitch Hop tune of all time, a little older but obviosly still a slayer!
Heres another head boppin tune you can comp for FREE on the Knight Riderz soundcloud page!
Last but not least we got more local talent to put Edmonton on the map! With a sick release on Play Me Too, Elliot Mars at the young age of 21 is ready to destroy the bass music scene with his authentic synths and face melting drops!
BANGER! 'nuff said :)

I want to spread a little love for the most talented, the most humble, and probably the nicest cat I know, Shamik. Shamik is an internationally known beatboxer and Mc, and if you have not heard or seen him perform, you are missing out! He has a new ep fresh off the press, and I want to share it with you all. Here is what Shamik had to say about, Westward Rising:
"I was flying over the Rockies back to Vancouver after a great show. At the time, I was collaborating on 3 tunes with 3 different producers. Each song was on my mind. Then I had the idea to put together a project featuring all Western Canadian artists. After a few emails that day, a bunch of talented people were on board! Our community is growing, we're all friends, and the music is doing all the talking. The purpose of this release is for you to feel the west rising. It's only fitting that Volume 1 of this series features all artists from Vancouver. Let's face it...our city is putting out some top notch sounds these days! It was a huge honor to lay down vocals on these 6 tunes, and I feel blessed to share 30 minutes of original Vancouver music!" -Shamik
