Soundscape 009: Danthrax (Toronto, Canada)

Canada Canada

MusicMap’s ‘Soundscape’ series is the easiest way to keep up with local music scenes and global trends. Every few weeks we visit a different country and ask a local artist to serve up a mix of the finest sounds from that area…

Our latest Soundscape comes from Toronto, home of hip-hop artist Danthrax, aka Danny Thrax. As a producer and collaborator with a number of rap artists, most notably Tasha the Amazon and their partnership Bass & Bakery, this mix showcases the incredible buzz coming out of Toronto and the wider Canadian scene.

“There’s this wave in Toronto right now. It’s pushing us up and it’s pushing us together,” says Dan. “I’m getting to travel the world and vibe with artists in all kinds of studios and venues. And even when I’m a long way from home, I still keep seeing these artists from Toronto, or even Brampton or Montreal. And we chop it up and there’s just this unspoken shared feeling… like ‘it’s us right now’.”

“I wanted to put those friends and peers in this set. I’m honestly thrilled to capture this moment musically.”
