Ghettosocks and Relic
Hitchin’ up the trailer and heading on road, Toronto Hip Hop besties Ghettosocks and Relic are traveling the country on their Cabin Fever Tour, making stop in Saskatoon to spin some beats and drop some words at MoSoFest. Both known for rapping with class and style, Relic and Ghettosocks have collected praises an accolades while showing Canada how to party with a beat.
D-Sisive (Derek Christoff)
This hip hop artist has been pairing good words with good beats for quite some time, collecting numerous accolades and industry recognition along the way. Knowing how to spin a phrase, D-Sisive does what you practice in your bathroom mirror – rapping with class. Based out of Toronto, D-sisive has a string of singles, albums and collaborations that culminate into one major reality: This guy’s vocabulary is massive and he’s passionate about each word he says.
Kay The Aquanaut
Kay the Aquanaut is one of the most successful and hard working independent musician’s within the Canadian hip-hop genre. He has released six solo albums, one album as a member of the group Metropolis Now, and over a hundred songs in the last decade. From his previous releases ‘Spinning Blue Planet’ and ‘Nickelodeon Ethics’, Kay has been able to tour across Europe, S.E. Asia, and Canada and gain a very loyal fan base along the way.
Saskatchewan hip hop producer Ryan Stinson has self-produced yet another charming EP—the latest, “FUTURA,” released through his own label Phonographique. With his homebase in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, Stinson made a second home for himself in Vancouver to produce and record “FUTURA,” which features Juno-nominated Ghettosocks and members of Vancouver’s Henry Hudson Elementary School choir, and strongly echoes artistic influences from his surroundings on the West Coast.
Hustle takes music production and DJ-ing to a whole new level by spinning beats and blending mixes that inspire you to move, groove and give in to your party urges. Known for toying with music and sounds from a variety of genres, Hustle adds a whole new level to any night out, which is why he’s won his way all the way to the Red Bull Thre3style National finals two years in a row.
Honing her skill as an MC since 2006, this Saskatoon hip hop artist has been working hard to establish herself as a credible talent amongst the greats in the Saskatoon hip hop scene. While T-Rhyme has played a number of aboriginal community events, things are picking up for this young rapper. In December of 2013 she released her first mixtape, From Scratch, and in early 2014 scored an opportunity to share the stage with Aboriginal dance-makers A Tribe Called Red.
If you are looking to hear a sound that is as fresh as it is nostalgic, Wizards is the band you want to hear. With strong guitar riffs, this Saskatoon band pulls on influences such as Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine to create a unique take on surf rock. The success of their debut EP in 2013 lead to a split 7” with another MoSo band, The Faps, and a sophomore EP release in 2014.
The Florals are a garage rock band comprised of members from Spoils, Library Voices and a few other Regina bands. Together they form a bedrock of musical bedlam.
