DEREK BENJAMIN FT.HALFNAKEDPICTURES - IT'S THE NIGHT

Check out my brand new single title "It's The Night" featuring HalfNakedPictures.

Available on all major platforms now!

Roger and myself started working together years ago, around 2010.  I recorded his debut mixtape and shortly after I made the beat for It's The Night.  Roger immediately felt inspired by the beat and wrote the hook.  After working on the track for a while I think we both realized how epic this could turn out.  The track was never 100% completed, and it just never materialized.  Over the last year or so my plan to put together a producer EP made me go through some old material when I realized that "It's The Night" would be a perfect fit.  Roger and I reconnected and decided that it was time to put it out!  Here it is:

GCE's Eric Taylor release debut album 'Dreams In Colour'

A little over a year ago, my pal and colleague Scott Ord connected me with Eric Taylor. I was lucky enough to fly out to Saskatoon and record Eric's debut album "Dreams In Colour", Which released today! It was a huge learning experience and the first real test after graduating Nimbus School of Recording & Media. We got to work in a great local studio Full Color Music & Recording with S.J. Kardash Helping me engineer the record. We were blessed to have Shawn F Cole on the mixing and Brock McFarlane CPS mastering master it for us.  Stream the album on all major platforms or pick up your digital copy here:

Peter Takis releases new single titled "Villains" Ft. Cassie Dasilva

Along the way, I've been finding some mega talented individuals, Cassie Dasilva being one of them.  We met back in 2013 when we both attended Nimbus.  We became friends and started working on music together.  I immediately believed that Cassie would make it far, and soon.  Two years after graduation, here we are just after finishing her debut album together.  After spreading word of her talent back home, local celeb and entrepreneur Peter Takis, enlisted Cassie for his latest radio single "Villains" which is a surefire hit.  You can request it on Virgin 103.1, Energy 106 and Rhythm 104.7 to start, and you can hear the new single here:
