Nestor Wynrush – Trinnipeg !78

Nestor Wynrush - Trinnipeg !78

CD | CHR016 2009

Six years after his debut record, Guy, I’m From Here, Nestor Wynrush raises the curtain on his newest creation, Trinnipeg !78. On this record, Wynrush (the fabulist) rides the rails from Winnipeg to Toronto, rapping bluesology and forgetting his heart on the window seat at every whistle stop. On board the train with Wynrush are some of Western Canada’s elite. Beats on the new album are provided by soso, mcenroe, Odario Williams, and DJ Kutdown with offerings from undercover upstarts Murdock and Lonnie Ce. Guest appearances by JUNO award winner and DMC Canadian champion, DJ Brace and Grand Analog round out the roster.

The songs are an ode to Canadiana in all its subtle, tragic glory. Trinnipeg!78 is a celebration of roots, agonized love and good times. At times Wynrush’s lyrics describe the painful quest for identity in a “multicultural” society — a quest to find one’s voice in a crowded room. Trinnipeg !78 – The place that he was proudly born into.

soso & DJ Kutdown – all they found was water at the bottom of the sea

The new instrumental album produced by soso and DJ Kutdown is slated for release on Hue Records, Japan. Blending their very different but complementary production styles — soso providing the melody arrangements and Kutdown providing the drum sequences — All They Found was Water at the Bottom of the Sea was created in the spirit of collaboration and friendship. The album retains the character that defined much of their earlier work and reflects their ongoing appreciation for beautiful samples and drums that smack.
