Drake vs. Kanye + all the rap shows and dance parties fit to print (and even some that aren't, because that guy should be in jail, maybe).
Trap, electro-soul, jazz, DIY DJing and more Montreal parties this weekend.
Montreal honours the memory of J Dilla on his birthday with a party hosted by Toast Dawg and Éphiks, with Dilla's brother Illa J and friends Sev Dee, Dr. MaD and DJ Manzo
The Montreal producer is making waves on the local beat scene with dreamy, downtempo, spiritual funk.
