NEW ALBUM: Es “Aspire To Inspire”

Ty Harper | Album,Audio,Music,Video | Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

First introduction to Es  via his latest album and title-track visuals.

This song is about setting realistic goals and remaining focused and following your dreams. Sometimes we set unrealistic goals for ourselves and as a result we fall short on expectation. This joint just had that type of inspirational vibe to it that gave me goosebumps. The production on this one is just phenomenal. Couldn’t believe this was all for me. LOL. A very suitable title track for the album. Dedicated to all dream chasers. Dream BIG and dream PRACTICAL. Don’t stop! Big shout out to my Essenchill Records labelmate and producer extraordinaire. Concept…Get to know this man!

Concept –

This is the 2nd single and title cut off the album of the same name… “Aspire To Inspire”. The full album is out RIGHT NOW!! on Support it !! A few dollars well spent and a welcomed addition to your music collection.

NEW ALBUM: Different Kitchen presents “This One Goes To Eleven….”

Ty Harper | Audio,Music | Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Ian Steaman curates a mix of new, unreleased and limited release material to celebrate 11 years of his Different Kitchen blog. Congrats!

Celebrating 11 years of sharing great music & culture and doing things a little differently than the average music site, long-running music blog, DIFFERENT KITCHEN ( ) finally releases the THIS ONE GOES TO ELEVEN… compilation album (the title a tongue in cheek homage to the movie, Spinal Tap) today to mark the milestone of their 11th anniversary.

THIS ONE GOES TO ELEVEN… features 11 brand new, unreleased tracks by a selection of favorite artists that have been featured on and supported by DIFFERENT KITCHEN over the past eleven years plus two extra cuts which have seen only limited release previously. Leading Canadian music magazine, EXCLAIM! will co-premiere THIS ONE GOES TO ELEVEN… at 11:11am ET with a stream of the entire album on the website at the following link:…_compilation_stream.

Artists featured on THIS ONE GOES TO ELEVEN… include acclaimed Bronx, NY-based rapper and former Battery/Jive records artist, Mickey Factz; veteran Toronto MC, King Reign; electronic soul duo from Australia, Audego recently featured on KCRW’s blog as an ‘Artist You Should Know’; 2013 Harbourfront Soundclash Music Award winner singer, Brendan Philip and the 416 Band, a brand new group project produced by 2013 Red Bull Thre3style Toronto champion and remix/production wiz, DJ M-Rock.

A mix of contemporary and classic hip-hop, electronic and urban alternative sounds, DIFFERENT KITCHEN head curator, Ian Steaman explains, “I’ve long wanted to do a compilation album of original music tied to DIFFERENT KITCHEN and, after missing our 10th Anniversary last year due to life and work issues, the 11th Anniversary concept just came to me. The album came out exactly the way I was hoping: different, creative & quality showcasing incredible artists who may or may not be getting as much shine as I think they deserve which is why I started the blog in the first place way back in 2003. Also, as a (now) Toronto-based site, I’m really happy that over half the artists featured on the album are from Canada. I hope people are as excited when they hear the album as I was putting it together.”

The release of THIS ONE GOES TO ELEVEN… was preceded by an 11-day promo campaign orchestrated by the CoolerBuzz agency during which five singles from the compilation were released. Each single was premiered with an Instagram teaser video trailer at the @iansteaman IG account followed the next day by a feature post on DIFFERENT KITCHEN premiering the full song. Promotion for the album will continue post-release with more feature posts on other songs from the album, artist interviews and the premiere on 8.12.14 of the video for Montreal rapper Jai Nitai Lotus’s “Pi (Brahma Built)” single which will be available exclusively on THIS ONE GOES TO ELEVEN… until it’s official release on his forthcoming ‘Acknowledgement’ mixtape later this month.
