Dream Jefferson are a Toronto duo who deal in the illicit street art they callÂ “Canadian-Electro-Party-Rap.” If that sounds like the worst ever then you need to slow your roll and take that one word at a time. Aw fuck it, no time for reading when jams like this are pumping through my headphones, making me want to mount this office desk and raise the damn roof! Producer and lyricist Corboe lays down the sick/slick beats while he and Owel Five spit hook-heavy rhymes about everything from “luminescence” to For Who The Bell Tolls. This is not your younger cousin’s party-rap, this is Dream Jefferson and as far as I am concerned they’ve wiped the slate clean, if only to rest their beers on it while they rock our business.
Take these two tracks as a taste of their vibe and range and once you haveÂ acclimatedÂ to party-rap transcendance then take in the rest of their debut EP, Sasquatch Bury Their Dead. It is being offered a free download so don’t waste any time on that. All 7 tracks pop and swerve with the tightest hip-hop swagger I’ve heard all year. The opening tracks begins with a sample of some stuffy guy saying “you best putÂ seat-beltsÂ on your ears, cause I’m gonna take them for the ride of their lives.” While that is certainly a bold statement, it’s not far from the truth.
