As the sites popularity has grown, so too has the volume of e-mails and tweets I get asking me to check out a new artist. A lot of these can be dismissed after about 2 bars, and it does get frustrating when you set aside time to listen to a bunch of tracks and they all sound like they were recorded underwater on a dictaphone.
What it does do though is make it more rewarding when you do find somebody with talent. Regular readers may have noticed that Trace Motivate isn’t strictly a new discovery, but he is a rapper who is criminally under the radar. Since hearing his Put ‘Em Up High EP i’ve been keeping tabs on the Toronto spitter, and now he’s back with the next track from the LP version of the project. Fans of the EP will definitely want to spend some time with this.
