Breaking Barriers, a collaborative project put together by Donec and Myself (Strange 2ruth). Featuring 11 tracks, 4 dope features, and 2 DJ's to give tracks that homegrown hip hop feel.
Recording started for this project back in the late spring of 2014, when I had just met Donec while opening up a show here in Cranbrook, which he attended. We soon linked up after that and recorded the first song you here, "Lonely City"
I still remember that day very much so. At first we just vibed, talked music, life back home, life here in Canada, and of course drank a few good Canadian brews (beers)
Once we got to it and I showed him the beat, very soon after he rapped a verse he wrote previously while on his break @ work. With a little work on the hook, we soon had a finished product ready for me 2 mix.
A month passed and with a falling out of my current living situation, I was back at Moms looking for a new place to live.
Took an apartment close to the downtown region and with the release of our first collaboration, we were very eager 2 get back on my home studio 2 create more music.
Everytime we got together, whether we started from scratch or had something mapped out with a beat in mind, at the end of the day there was a dope product to be proud of. It's why I can say, on both our behalf, we couldn't be more excited 2 FINALLY share with you all ELEVEN tracks of #BREAKINGBARRIERS - #ROMPIENDOBARRERAS!!
