Snotty Nose Rez Kids
Snotty Nose Rez Kids (SNRK) are an Indigenous hip hop duo currently based out of Vancouver, BC. Proudly hailing from the Haisla Nation, SNRK creates music that pays homage to their upbringing on the Rez in Kitimaat Village while also touching upon larger themes related to Indigenous identity, politics and resistance. It’s truly rare to find music that is as insightful, intelligent, and skilled as it is fun and catchy, but SNRK deliver on every level. With a new album out in April, MCs Darren “Young D” Metz and Quinton “Yung Trybez” Nyce embody everything that is good about contemporary hip hop and throughout the culture’s history.
DJ Kookum is a Dene/Cree filmmaker and DJ based out of Vancouver, BC. Relatively new to the DJing world, DJ Kookum is already making her mark on the trap and EDM DJ scene, having performed a Juno Showcase just last March and already making a profound impact in Vancouver and beyond. Sure to light up the dance floor, we can’t wait to have her as part of this year’s RPM Showcase.
Miss Eaves is the feminist sound storm of Brooklyn based-multimedia artist Shanthony Exum. Her fierce femcee electro-pop-rap-dance-explosions celebrate confident women who aren’t afraid to love themselves and own their sexuality — all with a take-no-shit attitude that pushes back at the patriarchy, haters, and anyone else who tries to keep her down. Please welcome Miss Eaves to Guelph for the first time – you will not get another chance like this.
OBUXUM is a performative-experimental producer from Somalia, now based in Toronto. She has created a sound that is entirely her own, incorporating Jazz, Hip-Hop, Afro-dance, Dancehall/Reggae, Dub and EDM. With the release of her debut EP, “H.E.R.”, Obuxum has cemented her place as one of the most interesting and skilled beat makers in the city. Each song lives on its own, taking you on a journey you’ll never forget. Drawing upon everyday life experiences, she creates her art as a means of healing and survival.
