Poetic Animated Short Film Series Dreams in Vantablack Premieres on CBC Gem September 29th

On September 29th, Dreams in Vantablack, the anticipated poetic anthology of 12 animated short films featuring Black youth poets from across Ontario premieres on CBC Gem. This incredibly unique collection of wordsmiths (Akil Elijah, Furqan Mohamed, Jennifer Kasiama, Jesse June-Jack, Ivy Black, Eva Anthony, Aaliyah Aden, Laura Baptiste, Cameron James, Egypt Morgan, Libin Ahmed, Chris Markland) reach within to make sense of a world that has often silenced them, revealing their truths on bullying, mental health, cultural identity, racism and more. Told through a wide and diverse array of animation styles, the series brings to life poems that teeter between disaster and a dream, and as the animated poems unravel, viewers get a birds eye view of the beautiful, complex and inspiring dreams of these wildly talented young writers. 

Directed and created by former world poetry slam champion Ian Keteku , Dreams in Vantablack offers up an intentional and rarefied view on Black youth culture as seen through the lens of a multiplicity of African-Canadian voices who represent a new generation of poets and creatives who insist that their voices be heard and their fresh perspectives be considered. “This project brings together two of my passions; poetry and animation. Developed in a UK lab, the colour Vantablack is the darkest shade of black, so dark that when painted on an object it disappears into shadows; much like the voices of many Black youth living in Canada.

Apple Music Announces Mr JazziQ As The Latest Isgubhu Cover Star

Apple Music today announced prolific Amapiano producer and DJ, Mr JazziQ (real name Tumelo Manyoni) as the next Isgubhu cover star.

With the release of his highly-anticipated debut album ALL YOU NEED IS PIANO (2022), available to stream on Apple Music in Spatial Audio, Mr JazziQ reinforces his status as one of the most prominent pillars of Amapiano.

Introduced to the innovative sounds of Oskido and Black Coffee by his father and his uncle, Mr JazziQ was a seasoned DJ and producer by his late teens, joining forces with Josiah De Disciple in 2017 to start the Amapiano DJ duo, JazziDisciples, and in doing so, popularising the genre. But it was his solo venture that saw Mr JazziQ carve out his own Amapiano-rooted path, releasing his debut album Party With The English (2021) as an acknowledgement of the genre’s explosion on an international scale. 

To celebrate his feature, Mr JazziQ has also created an exclusive Isgubhu playlist for Apple Music, showcasing African sounds that have influenced him over the course of his career. “This is a selection of all the flavours I like from the African sound. It also has some sentimental experience for me. All these different sounds contribute a lot to my music personally and it’s been so motivating to be part of the music curation to bring all happiness to the people,” he tells Apple Music.

Taking over Isgubhu By… for this month is deep house DJ and producer, DJ Buhle. After winning the prestigious accolade of Best Female DJ at the DMASA Awards in 2019 and being identified as one of the Top 10 deep house DJs on the continent, DJ Bhule continues her domination of South African’s club culture, collaborating with venues across Johannesburg to curate memorable musical moments. 

Rolling Loud Toronto Announces Set Times, Reveals Merch for This Weekend’s Inaugural Show

Wherever Rolling Loud goes, whether Portugal, New York, L.A., or its hometown of Miami, fireworks follow. The world’s biggest hip-hop festival continues its world tour this weekend with Rolling Loud Toronto, the first Rolling Loud on Canadian soil. Today, the festival announces set times for the extravaganza, its eclectic and uniformly excellent lineup presenting fans with difficult choices throughout the event’s three days. With headliners Future, WizKid, and Dave closing out each night in spectacular fashion, Rolling Loud Toronto makes its debut September 9th-11th, 2022 at Ontario Place, a gorgeous space on the shores of Lake Ontario that overlooks the famous Toronto skyline.

Along with the set times, Rolling Loud Toronto reveals new merch for the festival, inspired by Toronto’s cultural diversity, bustling rap scene, and by the festival’s location near the CN Tower and Rogers Centre baseball stadium. Rolling Loud revealed a composite image of the merch, along with styles modeled by Pressa, on Instagram. Rolling Loud Toronto Merch is available on site at the festival and at Rolling Loud’s online merch store.

For its first Canadian festival, Rolling Loud curated its most diverse and wide-ranging North American bill to date. Beyond the headliners, Rolling Loud Toronto brings American rap stars and Rolling Loud regulars like Lil Uzi Vert, Migos, Roddy Ricch, Trippie Redd, Lil Yachty, and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, alongside Canadian rap titans like NAV, Belly, and Pressa, and UK top men including Skepta, Central Cee, and AJ Tracey. Like all Rolling Loud festivals, the upcoming event prominently features some of the hottest rising names in rap, like Lil Tecca,  BIA, Ski Mask The Slump God, and many more.

Rolling Loud Toronto continues a massive year for Rolling Loud. Rolling Loud hosted its flagship Rolling Loud Miami festival in July, gathering the culture for one of the most exciting events of the year, featuring headlining performances from Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, and Future, plus special appearances from Ye and Travis Scott. Two weeks after hitting Toronto for the first time, Rolling Loud returns to hip-hop’s hometown with the third Rolling Loud New York, headlined by Nicki Minaj, A$AP Rocky, and Future. Earlier this summer, Rolling Loud hosted its first European festivals: Rolling Loud Portugal (July 6-8th, 2022) and WOO HAH! Fest in the Netherlands (July 1st-3rd).

Led by its founders Matt Zingler and Tariq Cherif, Rolling Loud is on a mission to lead the vanguard of live music experiences in hip-hop and beyond. Stay tuned for many more announcements about the brand’s various ventures.

Rolling Loud Announces California Dates at Hollywood Park (SoFi Stadium), March 3-5, 2023 in Inglewood

Packed with thrilling performances and unforgettable moments across its global array of events, Rolling Loud is rap music’s biggest stage. Rolling Loud announces its return to the West Coast with Rolling Loud California on March 3-5, 2023. The upcoming festival is the first Rolling Loud in Los Angeles since 2019, and is the first-ever music festival at the 300-acre Hollywood Park, which will be hosted on the grounds adjacent to SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA. Fans can register HERE to get notified shortly before tickets go on sale, and can purchase Inglewood-themed Rolling Loud merch at the Rolling Loud shop. Festival lineup and ticket information to be announced soon.

“Rolling Loud is deeply honored to be the first-ever music festival to take place at the incredible Hollywood Park,” say Rolling Loud co-Founders and co-CEOs Matt Zingler & Tariq Cherif. “We’re pumped to return to L.A. and make our debut in Inglewood, such an important neighborhood in rap history. Rolling Loud California 2023 will be an event worthy of its historic location, celebrating the undeniable influence of the West Coast on hip-hop and featuring some of the hottest rappers in the game. Stay tuned for our biggest and best California festival yet!”

Following up 2021’s Rolling Loud California in San Bernardino, Rolling Loud California 2023 makes a triumphant return to South Central Los Angeles. One of rap music’s most historic neighborhoods, South Central L.A. helped define the sound of the genre, and developed an untold number of rap icons. Inglewood itself played a major role in hip-hop history, earning shout outs from Dr. Dre on “California Love” and “The Next Episode,” producing West Coast legends like Mack 10 and Shade Sheist, and contemporary stars like Omarion, D Smoke, SiR, and many others. Rolling Loud California aims to celebrate the rich history of West Coast hip-hop–paying tribute to its icons and highlighting its current and up-and-coming stars–while bringing some of the genre’s biggest names from all regions to shut it down at Hollywood Park.

“As the world’s largest hip-hop festival, Rolling Loud will bring fans from around the globe to our Inglewood community,” said Jason Gannon, managing director, SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park. “Hollywood Park’s 300-acres lends itself to hosting a variety of large-scale events. With Rolling Loud as our first music festival, we will further showcase Hollywood Park as a global stage and multifaceted entertainment destination.”

Yesterday, Rolling Loud debuted the Rolling Loud California 2021 Aftermovie, an expertly-crafted and curated video that shows what makes the festival special. Highlights from the Aftermovie include performances by J. Cole, Kid Cudi, Trippie Redd and many more, plus a memorable guest spot from Ye during Future’s festival-closing set.

Led by its founders Matt Zingler and Tariq Cherif, Rolling Loud is on a mission to lead the vanguard of live music experiences in hip-hop and beyond. Stay tuned for many more announcements.

Before Rolling Loud returns to L.A., the biggest live brand in rap takes the show on the road for more concerts in 2022, including the inaugural Rolling Loud Toronto on September 9th-11th with headliners Future, WizKid, and Dave, and just two weeks later, the fest comes back to rap’s birthplace for Rolling Loud New York 2022, its third New York festival, headlined by Nicki MinajA$AP Rocky, and Future, on September 23rd-25th. Rolling Loud hosted its flagship Rolling Loud Miami festival in July, gathering the culture for one of the most exciting events of the year, featuring headlining performances from Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, and Future, plus special appearances from Ye and Travis Scott.
