FT. MIKE BOYD & D-SISIVE
Spotty G / TempoMental / Bobby Vintage / O-Beast 

<<<<<<<<<Mike Boyd>>>>>>>>>>
Mike Boyd is an emcee and lyricist from Enfield, NS. He is also the younger brother of hip hop star, Classified and is best known for his appearances and co-writes on several 
hit tracks including, “Inner Ninja”(Certified 3 x Platinum), “3 Foot Tall” (Certified Gold), ʻFamiliar”, “Sibling Rivalry” and “Live It Up”. Over the last decade Mike Boyd has joined Classified on stage and toured around the world. As Classifiedʼs dynamic hype-man, Mike adds an undeniable energy to every live performance. His long history touring alongside Classified has allowed the brothers to develop an unparalleled chemistry, and established Mike as a force unto himself on stage.

Mike Boyd steps out from his brotherʼs shadow with the release of his album “Note The Sarcasm” on March 25th via Halflife Records/Universal. This project is full of Mikeʼs 
trademark wit, crude humor and of course, sarcasm. Produced by Classified, this 
album reaffirms Mike Boydʼs place amongst the strongest and most exciting emcees in Canada. The album includes features from Classified, Shad, Madchild, Kayo, D-Sisive 
and Naledge – the hip hop community is out in full force to support Mikeʼs solo endeavour.

When asked about his first foray into solo work since 2008ʼs “Lost In The Woods”, Mike Boyd explained, “I found myself being inspired to write my solo stuff again after the 
birth of my son Mason. I spend a lot of time in the studio anyways, but for this record I started going through some of Classifiedʼs beats that no one had picked before. We 
picked some, re-worked some of the production and songs began to take on a new life.”Key tracks include the self-deprecating introductions, “Mr. Mike” and “Small World” (ft. Madchild and D-Sisive) and the powerful “Fly Like A Butterfly”. Featuring exclusive production by Classified, “Note The Sarcasm” brings the heat both lyrically and musically.“My goal was to create good ol' fashion hip hop tracks, beats and rhymes, hopefully fans catch that vibe."

<<<<<<<<<<<D-sisive>>>>>>>>>>>>
There was a time in Derek Christoff's life when he didn't have many words. It's not that he didn't have a story. But he was stuck on the start. In the late 90s, the young MC known as D-Sisive came up quickly in the Toronto hip-hop 
community with a string of well-liked singles, but his burgeoning profile was stopped cold with the illness and death of both of his parents in a six-year span. Grief and 
depression stole his creativity and motivation for the better part of a decade, but in a moment fit for fable, his lyrical inspiration returned suddenly one day while singing along 
to the Beach Boys on the radio. It was the new start D-Sisive's story needed. And he hasn't stopped since. 

2008's The Book EP was nominated for a Juno and its single "Nobody With A Notepad" won the SOCAN ECHO Songwriting Prize. 2009's Let the Children Die was longlisted for that year's Polaris Music Prize (and would later get an elaborate send-off with a full-
band live funeral after legal issues forced it out of production). The same year, he released Jonestown as a free download. Less than a year later, we got Vaudeville, and a year after that, the Jonestown sequel, Jonestown 2: Jimmy Go Bye Bye, back and forth between his story and others'. Along the way were a series of Hijacked singles, 
with D-Sisive rapping his own words over the music of such songs as Grizzly Bear's "Two Weeks" and Sigur Ros' "Festival," an homage to just some of his comprehensive 
influences and tastes. 

November 2011 brings D-Sisive's latest, Run With the Creeps. It's a deeper dive back into himself, and with his wide-open online look at the creative process along the way, his most honest yet. The hunger, pain, humour, and scrutiny have been on display every day; he's forever brazen in ambition and as credulous as a kid. He's writing the whole thing down, sparing no detail and certainly no time. D-Sisive is a disciple of hip-hop and a Bowie devotee. His eleven-year-old imagination was captured by Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff's "Nightmare On My Street," and later, by a legendary punk spectacle as heard on Creep single "GG Allin." There's something new everyday, and so he's running, trying to keep up with himself, trying to connect with his fellow creeps. There was a time he didn't have these words; didn't know how to say 
them. So now he's making sure he doesn't miss even one.

The Rebel Spell (B.C) wsg Jon Creeden & Straight Jacket

Mon Nov 10th
Fvck You Too Presents:The Rebel Spell came together in 2002 in East Vancouver, Coast Salish Territories. We are passionate about DIY culture, community building and social change.

Jon Creeden - Jon Creeden's lung capacity could rival that of the Big Bad Wolf, except when he huffs and puffs every house comes down regardless of construction materials. With just an acoustic guitar, a restless DIY work ethic, and a voice like gravel thats been dipped in honey Creeden has been touring, recording, playing, driving, singing, screaming, drinking, dancing, crashing on couches, and winning people over relentlessly for over seven years now, and there are no sign of him slowing down. Jon Creeden plays the kind of music that makes summer feel warmer, The kind of music that keeps a house party raging until dawn. The kind of music that leaves you hoarse from singing along. His new split 7" Home with Jesse LeBourdais is out now on My Fingers My Brain Records

Straight Jacket - London based punk band.  THese guys are seriously talented.  VERY obviously inspired by The Clash, keep your eyes on this up and coming band because they are sure to make waves in the London music scene!
