Happy Hump Day Humans! I am super stoked to share this colossal collaboration of the Canadian hip hop word smith, Dj and visual artist, Def3 and legend producer and entertainer, Late Night Radio. Being an old school hip hop lover, this album really makes my heart happy. It’s so nice to see new hip hop hit the scene that brings you right back to the golden era and all its glory.
Danny Fernandez, the man behind the wicked words, charming face and coolest childhood you ever did hear about. From 4 -10 years of age, Def3 lived on board a hospital ship with his mother, father and brother. At age 6 he began performing in a song and dance group called Ship Kids that entertained hundreds of people in some of the world’s poorest nations where Mercy Ships offered free surgeries and medical help. In his preteen years the family travelled to 27 different countries including the Caribbean, Europe and West Africa, giving Danny a very diverse view on life. With both parents having musical backgrounds, with latin rhythm from his Chilean father and a flair for words from his mother, Def3 naturally had dreams of producing his own brand of music from a very young age. After living in East Texas for a year, the family decided to move to Regina, Saskatchewan, where Danny really began to make his mark and became a major contributor in the Saskatchewan art scene as a one of a kind MC, super sick spray paint artist, and the most dope, down to earth DJ.
This month Def3 dropped the album, Small World, which has entirely been produced by Late Night Radio, who includes Alex Medellin and Tyler Crawford Unland (drums) from Denver, Colorado. With profile production, innovative experimentation and determined dedication to the craft, Late Night Radio have been earning recognition of fans and peers of the electronic music melting pot scene. Over the years Alex has put in his time in the industry, making his way up in Texas, California and now Colorado. His success today shows not only his ability to create tasty, top-notch original tunes, but to also bring them to life on stage, promoting what he preaches -guided by the mantra “emotion over energy.”
With biography’s like these, it’s no wonder this album is so magical. Thank you Def3 for creating new hip hop that has soul and groove and to Late Night Radio for continuously breaking the boundaries in the music scene, producing fresh, new tunes and adding genres under the umbrella of the electronic scene.
Hope you enjoy!
