Myles Jeh (ft. Taija New) – Addendum
Addendum, produced by Epik Beats, is a track where naysayers, copycats, and fake people are addressed.

Toronto’s self-proclaimed DISCO QUEEN is on the scene with a groovy new single!
Keegan used this song to apply for Factor Canada’s Artist Development grant – which she was awarded in 2020 – but they decided to wait on the release so that they could produce a big-budget music video worthy of the track.
Between the balloons, streamers, roller skates and custom built disco lip couch (designed and constructed by Chambers), the video is bursting with roller disco prom vibes – the perfect backdrop for a song that aims to inform on just how sexy consent can be. They shot the video at Pursuit OCR in Toronto; an indoor fitness centre for adults (how very appropriate). The LED lights, fire pole, and trike track were transformed into stages where Keegan and her roller girls, Stuntaz & Michka Moon, could strut their stuff.

[New Video] Fokis & Drive-By – The Switch Up
‘The Switch Up’ featuring German emcee Drive-by, produced by Franz Branntwein is the 1st single from the upcoming ‘Seasons Change, People Too: The Experiment’ project by Fokis.
‘The Switch Up’ is a creative concept that has American emcee Fokis, rapping in German and German emcee Drive-by, rapping in English. “I’ve been touring Germany since 2018 and have connected with the people really well and in the process I also learned a few basic words in German. One day I thought to myself, what if I wrote a verse and had a German rapper say it, and a German rapper wrote a verse for me, to say… so I reached out to my boy Drive-By with the idea and he was all in. It took him 20 minutes to record what I wrote for him and took me 8 hours to record what he wrote for me, but we got it done and had fun doing it.” – Fokis

With a soulfully smooth feature from Alice D, the track’s video accompaniment is an aesthetic transportation back to 1970’s Britain, complete with the era’s signature trends and fashions of offensively gaudy wallpaper and bright sweater vests.
