Spliff Breaks: Ask Shambhala (2014)

During the 2014 Shambhala Music Festival, Spliff Breaks took the cameras out and spent an afternoon talking to some of the vibrant, unique and random people who make up the community that is Shambhala! We asked a few funny, quirky, creative and silly questions to find out how people REALLY feel about SMF! The outcomes and answers are hilarious indeed.

We Ask: If Shambhala was a flavor of juice, what juice flavor would that be? What’s been your most magical moment at Shambhala, past or present? Why is Shambhala important for humanity? Show us what ShambhaLove looks like!

Cameos: Longwalkshortdock, The Correspondents, SkiiTour, Mat The Alien, DJ Praiz, Willy G, the kind people of Happy Island and more.. No finger puppets were harmed in the making of this film.

Host: John Zee - Cinematography: Daniel J. Pierce and Johnny Erwin

Edited: Daniel J. Pierce - Audio: Spencer Rieu

Aileron – Flight Risk (album stream)

Aileron is a hip hop trio based out of Vancouver that consists of members Eros, Ascend, and Aesthetic Deliverance (A.D.). Aileron has been on the rise quickly in the North American hip hop scene as they recently finished a month long U.S. tour with Zion I and Sol, and will be back on the road with Zion I hitting Canadian cities as they tour across this great country of ours this coming fall. They are touring to promote the release of their new album, “Flight Risk.”

Below I have included a stream of the new album which features ¡MAYDAY! (Wrekonize & Bernz), Zumbi of Zion I and Pep Love of Hieroglyphics. Also included are guest producers Amp live (Zion I), Rob The Viking (Swollen Members) and Gianni Cash (¡MAYDAY!) with Aesthetic Deliverance handling the majority bulk of the albums production credits.

This album is a positive, fresh breathe of air when it comes to hip hop. All members tackle such topics such as personal growth and development, health and well-being and focus on delivering thought-provoking lyrics and bars over crisp and detailed production. Stream album below and download for free HERE..

You+Me – Break the Cycle

This is such a good song. Peeped this video on the late night on Much Music at the crib, and it floored me! You+Me is the collaboration between Canadian musician-singer-songwriter Dallas Green and Alecia Moore, better known as Pink. Great song about breaking the cycle of whatever you’re dealing with/hanging on/addicted to… we all deal with some shit. Beautifully put..

Yelawolf – Till It’s Gone (video)

New video for Yelawolf’s song “Till It’s Gone”.. I’m really feeling this joint but the video, meh… it’s aiight. Lots of tattoos and slow motion clips though. That’s kinda cool I guess.

Even if the video is a little luke warm, something that’s guaranteed to be scorching hot will be Yela’s live show with Rittz, Big Henry, DJ Klever and Northwest Division on Nov. 15th at Venue in Vancouver. The city is buzzing for this show already, it’s going to be mad hype! Event info: Yelawolf@Venue-Vancouver
