Djiby is a Hip-Hop/R&B Indie artist that personifies what G-R-I-N-D means. He was born in Senegal, grew up in Kuwait and moved to Canada by himself when he was only seventeen years old. He has been making music since he was fourteen. Only recently has he begun to grasp the concept of power that music has.

What is ”Crazy”?

Charlotte Violetta from MGS: ”One of my favorite songs you’ve produced so far is “Crazy”. Can you tell us what is “Crazy?”

Djiby: ”The record covers the natural , but often complicated,feeling of asking yourself if its really you who is crazy OR is it the people around you.

Charlotte Violetta from MGS: ”Another song, ”Hatred” which is produced by SeriousBeats, covers the feeling of going from being an optimist to becoming a true pessimist which eventually leads you to a self-misleading hatred. Can you tell us more about that?”

Djiby: “ I do not enjoy labels per say, but I believe we millennial have a tendency to forge a facade; an a alternate reality when confront with true pain”.

From music which Djiby has created himself, to his collaborations and features on other artist’s songs; he is an adaptable musician chameleon. He goes from backpack raps to the turn up joints and all the way to the late-night-cruises-on-ste-catherine-street-melodies all in the same song.

On the rapping part; he seems to hold his own either with the content and the flow. On the singing note, which is often where rappers often lack in skills, he also stands out.

It seems like he’s not pushing that side of his artistry enough sometimes though. The parts where he provides melodies often leave you with this feeling that he can give you more.

Also by discovering his incredible journey from Senegal all the way to Montreal. The audience could definitely learn from someone who left everything behind to live his dream, can wait to hear more of this in his music.

What makes him an artist to look out for is his ability to be introspective even on turn up beats. Trap beats usually make regular artists dumb it down to the point where beat where you only like the beat and the hook.

Artists like Djiby still find a way to command you to listen to what he has to say even though the beat makes you want to fill up your cup in the club.

 

The Power Of Music

Charlotte Violetta from MGS: ”What’s the message you’re trying to get out of your music?”

Djiby: “ My music speaks to the everyday struggle of your average person in their 20s. How do I keep a balance between being in the limelight yet remaining true to myself?

I’m not a preacher, but I want to use the lessons that I’ve learned and the experience that I’ve accumulated along the years as a compass for the audience. My job is to show my personality in my music as well as to grow with the audience.”

Malefycia Is Restoring The Feeling, One Spooky Scream At A Time

Long are the days when I was cruising down the streets on October 31st either looking for candies to devour for 3 weeks straight or even as an adult looking for a popping club where I could tell people ”My costume is ME tonight”.

The truth is, I think Malefycia restored something that I thought was buried inside me. They reminded me that not only I liked Halloween but I just couldn’t find an alternative in my adult life to spark my curiosity on one side and get the thrill going on the other.

Malefycia been around for a minute but this year they’re trying something different…I mean different.

You’re familiar with the 7 sins in the bible don’t you? You’re aware of what a haunted house is supposed to be don’t you? Well, something in their team had the genius and actually vicious idea to combine these two things who might have nothing to with each other on the outside looking in but in this new adventure/haunted house experience; it all make sense!

their show called V7CE is cross theatre performance, cross the most scary thing you’ve ever seen. The show includes different scenes and interactive plays putting on the forefront the 7 sins from the bible.

What always stand out to me when it comes to Malefycia, is there raw and authentic attention to details.

Do yourself a favor and come immerse yourself in this universe and your inner child and your thrill-seeking inner adult have some fun.

The city has been quiet fashion wise over the years and as platform that mostly talked about fashion in its inception, we’ve felt it the most over here.

There would be sparks of hope here and there but besides Festival De Mode & Design, not a lot of things really stood out.

When I heard about ”The Glitch” it’s like I knew what it was about without nothing what it was about.

I mean good branding is good branding but it was more so who’s behind the good branding this time around. I had the chance to work with Myraï Lavoie in the past and one thing I can is : there’s a method to her madness.

Every artist has an eye and that eye is shaped by our views of the world and life experiences. Myraï had an interesting life.

One where being different is actually the move. One where if you don’t fit somewhere, you don’t try to get in the mold, you bend it.

For all the lack of support or misunderstand she got in Montreal, she found a place to be creative working or being in room with the likes of Paris Hilton & P. Diddy to name a few.

What she’s learned from coming out of her shell and experiencing the world she’s about the share it with us with her own fashion called ”The Glitch” tonight.

”The Glitch” is exactly what I thought it was going to be. A standout experience and experience and something you’ve never seen before just like its creator.

We are now entering an era where we want to know more about what is going on on the other side of the world.

How people are living, their culture and what is their reality compared to ours.

Sometimes the depiction of such reality is either unfair or made to look down at somebody. Other times, filmmakers have the challenge to depict a reality in a way to uplift what other cultures are bringing to the table.
