Holy S**t, It’s A Free EP by Canadian rapper Sikadime is proof of what he spoke of, in both cases. The album starts immediately with “Good Times” sounding good old school in more ways than one.

”Where I’ll End Up” continues with this vibe. Again, the bass, drums and trumpet come together to create something very catching and entertaining. This is joined by the effects and rap that could compete with the greats of this genre.

In conclusion, we see the other spectrum of this diverse genre taken from soul and gospel. Unlike the electronic sound of our times, Sikadime’s latest EP is pure old school in it’s finest.”

Fearless and relentless, this nationalistic British Columbia has been at the grind for a long time, putting out more then a dozen solo albums, and many more in collaboration. Even well into his career he manages to keep his prolific tendencies, with 2017 he has already brought us several releases, each sounding sizzlingly hot. Aging like fine whiskey, with each album seeing him only getting stronger and stronger, Sikadime truly is a testament to passion and persistence.”
