Via Linez X Met Expectations LP
With the success from his rookie project, “The Late Bloomer EP” in 2009, Via Linez has gained significant momentum and notoriety throughout the country. VIA’s new project has arrived. The “MET EXPECTATIONS” LP. This LP has already released 3 Singles and had created a phenomenal buzz throughout the Canadian scene with the DJ’s keeping him in national rotation.

HighDEF X The HIGH End THEORY
Many trio’s and groups have weak links. Then there’s Toronto’s infamous individuals Lyve, CocoDyce and PRESS who make up the squad, HighDEF. Their Debut album “The High End Theory” is nothing short of quality music.Super-producer, LYVE has been on the forefront of the Canadian Music Scene for a sometime now. With projects under his belt such as the producer of TONA’s DIRECT DEPOSIT LP, and production credentials for TANYA MORGAN, SKYZOO, AYAH, NISH RAAWKS and LINDO P, just to name a few it’s more than obvious why LYVE is now one of Canada’s best. CHRIS AK / “CoCo Dyce”, the visual mastermind behind numerous visuals such as Jessica Kaya’s “Fake it”, Tona’s “Fast Pace”, and collaborative joint “CERTIFIED” feat. VIA LINEZ, PRESS and ELEMENT. Not to mention Dyce is one-half of the LVD (Lyve vs Dyce) Production duo so he’s has proved to be a solidified triple-threat….yes, if you’re not up on him yet, he’s a talented and recognized lyricist too. PRESS…Cool, Calm and Classic.This noterized emcee has been working on his solo LP while attaining a buzz in Toronto like no other since dropping his verse in “REAL LYVE S#IT!” feat. ADAM BOMB in 2010. Bringing forth his wordplay and savy fashion-sense topped with an impeccable showmanship showcased in this HighDEF project, PRESS is without question one of Canada’s best kept secrets.
