In 2007, Bear Witness considered himself a bit of a loner. He kinda thought of himself as a one man wolf pack. Then in 2008 he met DJ NDN and he knew right then that NDN was one of his own and his wolf pack, it grew by one. So then there was two of them in the wolf pack. Bear was the first in the wolf pack and NDN joined in later. And 18 months ago, when the guys met DJ Shub, Bear thought to himself, "wait a second, could it be?" And then Bear knew for sure that they just added one more guy to their wolf pack.

Afro-Latin Dub meets West Coast bass, World Hood, the self titled debut album from World Hood Music is a peaceful revolution in itself, uncrowded by the usual suspects. The group’s first release plays like a breakbeat fairytale with distinct Afro-beat, Cumbia, and Hip Hop chapters. If Portishead and Too Short ran into Chico Mann at the corner store at 2 a.m. World Hood music is what would commence shortly after.

A voice of the present day telling a story from centuries ago, Samian lays down his poetry with the soul of a warrior. Through his music, Samian retraces the story of aboriginal people for whom he claims respect and recognition. His albums : Face à soi-même in 2007 and Face à la Musique in 2009, were acclaimed by audiences and the press. Over the past years, Samian collaborated with artists as Florent Vollant, Anodajay and Loco Locass. Among other things, he performed at the Vancouver Olympic Games, in Finland, France, China, and Indonesia.
