Drake took over the hip-hop charts, Justin Bieber took over the pop charts (and the world), and Canada’s new era of pop culture domination has begun. If you’re placing bets on the next big artist to emerge from The Great White North, it’d be a smart move to put a few Canadian dollars on Ryan Hemsworth.
Hemsworth hails from Halifax, and he’s a young beatmaker and electronic music producer. He’s prolific with both his remixes and his original songs, and he possesses a style that seems to be in high demand these days from rappers and other producers alike: chilled-out, slow-motion and spacy beats with glitchy percussion. He also loans out beats to MCs.
Hemsworth recently released a music video for his song entitled “Colour & Movement.” The video wasas directed by Yoni Lappin, and features some psychedelic images of girls walking around and smoking cigarettes. Check it out below.
