ONE TO WATCH – TightMike

tightmike

Canada has always had a world-renown hip-hop scene (not that I feel Drake is doing much to improve or showcase it) but there is a chap that goes by the moniker of TightMike that is particularly clever on the production side of things and you should definitely check him out.  His track titled Diamondcutter was featured on the eclectic Japanese producer/DJ Bugseed’s latest mixtape titled In Bloom and once the lucid and warm pads coupled with the thumping swinging boom-bap beat crashed into my eardrums, I was on to his Bandcamp in a flash. His album (titled Bobbin & Weavin) can be acquired by simply clicking the picture above, all for the nominal fee of whatever-you-choose-to-pay.

Don’t sleep on this guy.  Seriously.

About Joseph Guthrie

The man who claims to have made more Transatlantic flights than Charles Lindbergh is a music-loving, video-game hoarding, literary-composing freak. When he's not fulfilling his duties as the frontman of the band Ships Down, he produces his own hip-hop beats and actively contributes to the Sampleface blog.

Some say The Auracle is not of this universe... assuming London is in a parallel dimension somewhere. You can find him on Google+ .
