Justin Timberlake’s “SoulMate” will be your new Summer Jam

Surprise, surpriiiise. It didn’t take too long for Justin Timberlake to come back to his old roots. Following Man of the Woods, JT dropped “SoulMate” yesterday (Monday, July 2nd) taking us back to that old school sound we all adore.

The song starts with a very bold “summer starts now” from Timberlake over a very low bouncing rhythmic keyboard. The song’s constant similar rhythm sets the mood for a very relaxing and chill summer ambiance.

This song follows the other successful summer jams that the singer has dropped throughout his career. To name a few, “Can’t Stop The Feeling” and “Summer Love” have also been named songs of the summer in their respective year so it wouldn’t be a shock to see this song receiving the same title.

The song was produced written by Nineteen85 (who also helped creating “Hotline Bling” and “One Dance” by Drake) Timberlake, along with Lechas Young, James Fauntleroy, Jagged Edge’s Brian Brandon Casey and Gary Smith. 

Listen to the song below:

I saw The Doobie Brothers for a second time and IT WAS EVERYTHING

I mean, I didn’t drink or got high – although I’m pretty sure that I got a buzz from the second hand smoke that was circulating through the Budweiser Stage’s field.

Dirty Rick releases first EP ‘Post-Candid’

After almost a year of performing live covers in small venues across downtown Toronto, local band Dirty Rick announced the release of their first EP Post Candid a week ago.

The band consists of Allan Cocunato, Chris Barrett, Christoph Neuland and frontman David Koffman.

The EP is a hard rocking album led by the very energetic “Oh No (Yeah)” and a more bluesy “Haunt”.  Koffman opened up about the genres that influenced the four pieces. “Blues is king. It takes music to its roots, and gives us a common skeleton by which we then throw on our other personal flavours, such as punk/hard rock and psychedelic.”

The announcement of their EP was made through a Facebook post along with a link to their release party happening tonight.

“People can expect to dance the whole show,” he said. “We bring lots of energy and love to connect with the crowd, especially now since people have started to learn our lyrics and sing along.”

The party starts at 9 pm at the Hard Luck Bar in Toronto. If you wanna get more familiar with the band, listen to Post Candid on Spotify!
