Tech N9ne creates proper Caribou Lou’s on Spliff Breaks

Here at Spliff Breaks we recently decided to create a shorter and more condensed, step by step instructional video of our segment with Tech N9ne, where he shows us how to create a proper Caribou Lou cocktail.

Caribou Lou is a drink which Tech N9ne coined back in 1995 and was made famous in his song “Caribou Lou”, which is an ode to his signature beverage. This drink can now be found in restaurants, clubs, bars and house parties all over the world. This video also features plenty of new live-performance footage from Tech N9ne’s sold-out show at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, BC.

You can also watch our full length, in-depth interview with Tech N9ne here..

Yogi ft. Pusha T – “Burial” X “Burial” [Moody Good RMX]

This joint is nasty.. “Burial” is a dirty, dark, menacing trap instrumental that Pusha T has no problem handling. The rapper delivers a clean and threatening flow to round out the heavy dance vibes established by YOGI, solidifying this one as a go-to club monster.

Stream the original and the Moody Good rmx below and hit up the soundcloud link to purchase Yogi’s “Burial” EP.

Spliff Breaks premiers the new video by A-Ro The Naut from Vancouver Hip-Hop outfit Elekwent Folk.

Fatty Down & Jenny Lea – Chasing The Sun (Remix)

Fatty Down and Jenny Lea recently collaborated on the song “Chasing The Sun” which is the first single from Fatty’s upcoming album Chameleon. I really enjoy the acoustic, folk feel that this hip hop track provides. I feel both artists were definitely in their comfort zone’s on this joint and that they both vibed well of each other. The hook catches me instantly and has me easily singing along by the second verse. Chasing The Sun really has me looking forward to Fatty’s new album and to hearing what the whole project will come across like.

Aileron – Dreams Never Stop (feat. Zumbi of Zion I)

Spliff Breaks is hyped to exclusively premier the new video from Aileron (Vancouver) for their song “Dreams Never Stop” featuring Zumbi from Zion I (Oakland, Cali). Aileron (consisting of Eros, Aesthetic Deliverance & Ascend) recently wrapped up their second tour in one year as they joined Zion I on both the “Masters Of The Ceremony Tour” (Zion I, Sol, Aileron) and the “Coastin’ Canadian Tour” (Zion I, Aileron). Below is a summary of the experience and the video from Aileron themselves.

“Being apart of these 2 tours was truly an honour. We have been listening to Zion I since we learned what hip hop was. We consider them one of our biggest inspirational influences as musicians. To be able to spend a month and a half with them was a massive learning experience for us that we will carry in the back of our minds the rest of the way. Nothing but respect.” ~ Ascend.

“Dreams Never Stop” can be found off Aileron’s new album Flight Risk. Stream/DL “Flight Risk” here…

HHVtv presents: Hennessy Artistry x Keys N Krates (Live @Fortune)

The boys over at hiphopvancouver.com really out did themselves on this one.. damn, they killed it! Back on Nov 22nd, Hennessy Artistry came to Fortune Sound in Vancouver and held a special show featuring Canadian electronic sensations Keyz N Krates and American DJ/Producer Just Blaze. This was a two part concert series with one show held in Toronto and the other in Vancouver. This was the first time that the Hennessy Artistry series had come to Canada.

The theme for the event was ‘The Art of Blending’ . Keyz n Krates kicked the show off with an intro that transitioned into a remix of Meek Mill’s Flexin’. From there they dug into some of their old material before treating everyone with songs from their September release the ‘Every Night EP’. Just Blaze started things of with Jay-Z’s PSA and proceeded to run through a mix of his hits combined with other rap anthems.

Produced, Directed & Edited by David Dalley & Kevin Wong
