Between what isn’t said, what can’t be said, and what we don’t know how to say… Staasia Daniels says it all. Her Unheard Volumes speaks to us in the instinctual and often-difficult language of emotions that she seems to effortless converse in; caressing and stimulating our hearts through valleys of vulnerability up unto the peaks of heat in lust and love – and all that is in between. Staasia’s bare-all honesty is raw and refreshing, summing up many of our true feelings without the false pretenses that we often put up: for others, and for ourselves. Just pure feels and energy, straight from your ears to your heart – delivered only Staasia Daniels can.
Staasia Daniels is falling back somewhere this fall, but clearly not in the music department. The bass-heavy bop of a ballad produced by Xpress aka DJXP and SLWJMZ marks the beginning of a new era: Unheard Volumes, an upcoming collection of vulnerable tales of love and other situationships that can only be told by Staasia Daniels, with her magical capacity to express what we often repress in our Neptunian depths.
No, not the show, silly – we don’t condone pirating.
The kaleidoscope of a video was directed by duo Fatty Soprano & Shutterr and features dynamic dancers and fashionable features including Toronto’s Azonto King Prempz, Karo Jasper, Michelle Asiamah, and more. Styling was done by CREEPS and watch out for a cameo by their very own Cynthia.
Kawhi may have left Toronto but EverythingOShauN is still repping the city hard with a new single following “Making the Band (Diddy)“. In usual fashion, the hip-hop artist and his producer Xpress aka DJXP delights us with a new sound that still manages to pleasantly surprise us with the reaches of their versatility.
A hearty guitar loop envelopes OShauN’s catchy hooks in what can only be described as a folk-trap phenomenon. Press play on “Load MGMT” now and enjoy this moment; have fun with it.
Our very own Lowry rapper EverythingOShauN is grinding hard with a new single from a fourth-coming project. Over a chill-bass production by frequent collaborator Xpress aka DJXP and SLWJMZ, OShauN is making plans and bands like Diddy on Making the Band, with his by-any-means-necessary attitude.
Making the Band (Diddy) is available everywhere; check out EverythingOShauN.com for all the streaming/purchasing options.
The Universe gives, and the Universe takes.
It’s alive and breathing, much like us; with us, a symbiosis of energy and intention.
What we put out we can expect a return, but what it may be, should not be our concern.
Staasia Daniels – scribe of sentiments in musical form – liberates a pulsating 6-track project

containing her strength and vulnerabilities, desires and capabilities…
“I’m just tired of overthinking… overthinking ruins the flow of things,” she introduces
as she presents her offering into the Universe and concedes:
Whatever Happens, Happens.

One of Staasia Daniels‘ most popular songs – Peanut Butter – and arguably one of the most representative of her quirky food-loving sensual self, has finally received a much-requested video treatment. Directed and krafted by Ashley Iris Gill (@craftedbyaig), we are thrilled with not just a music video, but a whole mini-sitcom to make up for the long wait. Treat yourself to some raw chicken, crunchy nuts, and The Real Taste of Jamaica and make sure to spread the love after by sharing it with all your friends who eat.
EverythingOShauN is in a Polaroid-perfect montage, riding around the north-side’s suburbs in a vintage vehicle with his stripped-down bride (@purplexolive), as he contemplates the delicate balance between settling down in a relationship and wanting to ball like The Raptors’ point guard Lowry. The imagery in the Fatty Soprano & Shutterr directed video features contrasting elements that effectively tell the dilemma between childhood dreams and adulthood realities: the shirt & tie with the varsity jacket, the purity and tradition of a wedding dress versus the freeing and liberating panties & bra, and essentially the right side up and the upside down; all taking place in an unsettling setting of strange nostalgia mixed with ever-too-real reality. The reflective track’s producer, Xpress aka DJXP, also makes an appearance. Catch more deep waves and feels off EverythingOShauN’s latest album, Everything Over Everything Else.
EverythingOShauN unveils his third project “Everything Over Everything Else”, taking us to yet another level on his elevator ride to the top with his producer Xpress aka DJXP. A departure from his previous moody EP “Almost Everything”, we emerge here with more confidence, growth, and punch. While keeping that distinctly cold Canadian sound and repping with mentions like Lowry and a feature from fellow Toronto rapper Clairmont the Second, OShauN also takes it out the window with international flair on tracks like Al Jazeera and Mañana.
