Showcases the best in hip hop to house, broken beat to soul and dancefloor jazz. Fresh from the success of 'On the Right Track ', label head honcho John Kong decided the time was right to properly showcase Toronto to the worldwide audience. Giving you a sneak preview of upcoming albums are tracks from hiphop giant DJ Serious, deep electrofunk artist Kaje, and the three-times-dope hiphop threat Circle Research crew. Also featured are debut tracks from newcomer 'AfroKraut' vocalist and musician Shawn Hewitt, and up-andcoming hiphopfunkjazz outfit The Quartertones. The comp is rounded out by some familiar tunes that are still too nice from Toronto's house godfather Nick Holder, brokenjazz duo Moonstarr and John Kong, hiphop dynamos Brassmunk, and soulful electrofreak Hand Polished. Exclusive tracks by the soulful multi-talented Ivana Santilli, the dancefloor afrojazz BAW Collective, Brazilian shuffled house duo Augusta, electrohouse artist Basic Soul Unit, and the Rhodes-blessed Jason Kenemy.'
