PTR's Next Stop

Public Transit Recordings just released a free compilation celebrating their 10 years running....and it's GREAT! I am not just saying this because I am friends with label-mates Moonstarr and LAL, but also because this is a Canadian compilation, and a fantastically diverse one at that! This 15 track collection has a variety of hip-hop, soul, and cool electronica to satisfy any music enthusiast.

If you click on the download link below, it will take you to the PTR site where you simply have to give them your email address for their mailing list, and in exchange they give you this awesome compilation for free! Check out the album, and don't forget to drop a "thanks for the free tunes" to the friendly folks at PTR... And tell 'em Mista D sent ya!

You Have A Choice.

This is a new single that was just released by a group of Canadian artists who have joined together to record a song sponsored by Avaaz, titled “You Have a Choice,” to mobilize and inspire Canadians to stop a Harper majority from devastating our climate by voting strategically where we live for the candidate most likely to defeat the Conservative candidate.

The Canadian artists who rallied together for this effort, besides myself, include: K-OS, Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies, Ben Kowalewicz of Billy Talent, Adam Gontier of Three Days Grace, Sarah Harmer, Hawksley Workman, Jason Collett of Broken Social Scene, Ian Lefeuvre of The Hundreds and Thousands, and the Arts Offstage Choir under the direction of David Reed.

You can hear me singing along with Benny Talent in the first half of the bridge, and backing up K-OS on the first chorus, and then again on my own during a part of the last chorus.

Check out the song, and help us save the planet!
