D-Sisive, a prolific Canadian rapper, best known for his Juno Award-nominated EP The Book, his hit single "Nobody With A Notepad" (for which D-Sisive and collaborator Muneshine won SOCAN's fourth annual ECHO Songwriting Prize) and his 2009 Polaris Music Prize-nominated album Let the Children Die (which was launched by the success of "Nobody With A Notepad").

D-Sisive first emerged in the late 1990s with a number of independent singles which were popular in the Toronto hip hop scene, but took a six-year break from performing and writing due to a battle with depression following his mother's death in 2001 and father's death in 2007. The death of his mother inspired him to release the EP J.A.C., named after her, while D-Sisive's response to losing his parents is heavily documented on releases such as The Book and Let the Children Die. Despite this absence, his talents were showcased on DJ Format's popular 2005 album If You Can't Join 'Em... Beat 'Em, and D-Sisive performed alongside fellow Canadian rapper Abdominal in the music video for DJ Format's hit single '3 Feet Deep'. Further, a collection of recordings from the early period of D-Sisive's career has been released on a widely available bootleg entitled Yesterday. The Mixtape.

D-Sisive's bout of writer's block came to an end when he was unexpectedly inspired by lyrics spontaneously coming to him while singing along to The Beach Boys' "Wouldn't It Be Nice" on the radio — lyrics that became his breakthrough hit, "Brian Wilson". He signed to URBNET Records, which released The Book on June 3, 2008 and Let the Children Die on May 3, 2009. Later that year, D-Sisive took part in an interactive documentary series called City Sonic. The series, which featured 20 Toronto artists, had him reflecting on Planet Mars, an underground hip-hop showcase that changed his life. D-Sisive capped off his SOCAN award win and closed 2009 with a free album entitled Jonestown.

2010 saw the release of another album, Vaudeville, as well as numerous singles, including a song inspired by the documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil and a music video entitled 'First Winter' for The C4 Experiment hosted by Christopher Walken. D-Sisive also began working with rapper Buck 65 for an upcoming collaborative album entitled The Ricardo Christoff Apparatus. In early 2011, D-Sisive continued his Hijacked series with a single entitled 'If I Live To See Tomorrow', based on a song by Sigur Rós. The release of a new album, Jonestown 2: Jimmy Go Bye Bye, scheduled for free distribution online in late 2010, has been pushed back to later in 2011.

PR: The Latest Devo Spice Update

From Devo Spice:

Hey everyone,

Look!  Things!


I have officially given up on video.  At least for now.  My wimpy 10 year old computer just can’t handle it.  I can’t practically hear it coughing and wheezing every time I add a transition to a video.  So to save it the three days of rendering and converting formats, and try to preserve what little is left of my sanity in the process, I have relaunched The Insider as a traditional audio podcast.

The first episode, episode 18, because really, all podcasts should start at episode 18, is available now here.

This episode features the brutal tale of a Christmas cookie massacre, a bit more talking about my recent release Half-Assed Rapper, and a new song that I recorded for Mur Lafferty’s podcast I Should Be Writing.  If you’re one of those podcast-savvy people you can subscribe to the podcast feed here:

If you’re a member of the Spice Rack you get an EVEN LONGER episode of the podcast with exclusive content and early mixes and secret plans that will probably never happen because the forces of the universe are working against me.  Spice Rack subscribers can subscribe to the podcast feed here:

This month Spice Rack subscribers hear some additional plans for my new album, hear about the secret project code-named Pizza Time, and get an early, really rough mix of the song I’m submitting to the new Weird Al tribute album.

We finally have a venue and some proper information.  Here.

Friday, February 18th
Anthony’s Micro Pub
225 N. 2nd St.
Harrisburg, PA  17101

Admission is free.  21 and over.

9:00 - Trapstarz
9:30 - Rukus
10:00 - Devo Spice
10:30 - Riddles
11:00 - AnonymousCulture
11:30 - LIL’ T
12:00 - L.V.

Every year The Great Luke Ski puts together a colossal set of live music to sell to raise money for MarsCon's comedy music programming and then doesn’t shut up about it for 3 months, so I have to mention it here. This year's compilation is a 3 CD set, nearly 4 hours of music.

Included on this set are I'm On It and Platform Wars along with Vampires Suck by Odd Austin, and The Bible, An Audio Book and Dumb Fanfic Awards by Cirque du So What?  The 3-CD fund raiser album is just $10 in MP3 format, or $30 if you want the physical CDs as well. Some other packages available also include tickets on Party Rob's Party Bus. For the full range of packages available visit MarsConDementia.com.

MarsCon 2011 will once again be host to a ton of great comedy music featuring musical guest of honor Worm Quartet!  Plus Cirque du So What, Devo Spice, Insane Ian, Nuclear Bubble Wrap, Possible Oscar, Power Salad, Steve Goodie, Soggy Potato Chips, The Great Luke Ski, Toyboat, TV's Kyle, and more!

Admission to MarsCon is $45 if you pre-order through the end of January. After that admission is $60 at the door, so get your order in now and save a few bucks.  More information can be found at MarsCon.org.

That’s all folks.  Take care.
