NEW VIDEO: The Real Freqs present “The New North” – Shad “Flawless” (Prod. Frank Dukes)

The Freqs let off the first cut from their upcoming “The New North” project:

This is the first release from our album, . We gathered some of Toronto’s (and London’s in this case) finest to put together this compilation.

Flawless features Shad with production from Frank Dukes. This joint incites visions of action, James Bond type ish, or some anime type joints. So it was fitting to add some anime visuals to this song, from the classic Ninja Scroll.  Frank Dukes had this to say about this song:

After learning I would be working with Shad, I knew I wanted to bring him into a different zone than what people were accustomed to or might expect from him thus far. I gave him a rugged, aggressive beat that he absolutely bodied, which kind of led to the title of the song.

Yeah, we all bugged when we heard him on this. Shouts to Dj Dopey for the cuts.
