Rich Terfry (Buck 65) is a Canadian hip hop artist, MC and turntablist. Currently, he is host of a show on CBC Radio 2 called Drive. He does a fantastic job playing a diverse arrangement of Canadian music. I have heard from a number of music enthusiasts that he is one of their favorites. I concur.
The xx are a group of 20 year olds from London. Their sound bridges modern R&B with minimalist electronica and hushed vocals. Rumor has it they recorded their astronomical debut, conveniently titled “xx”, in a storage room at the back of their record label. The band met at Elliott School, whose alumni boasts such influentials as Hot Chip, Four Tet, & Burial. With a back story like that it’s no surprised they’re poised to be the next big thing. The record is out now in the UK and drop October 20th in North America.
