On SOMETHING SOMETHING TAPE, ascending Toronto soul musician and beatmaker Young Clancy captures a vital moment along the city’s ever-thrilling artistic course. Gathering 12 of the most distinctive voices in the city’s thriving independent R&B and hip-hop scenes, Young Clancy settled in over the pandemic lockdown “to create around the times, rather than for the times,” he says, distilling a unique and tangible perspective on “The New Toronto Sound,” a version that truly vibrates on the deep, unifying heartbeat coursing through its artistic community.

The result is an infinite 18 minutes of intuitive and emotionally far-ranging music, including the weeping psychedelic soul of M.I.BLUE‘s “BLUE’S INTRO.”
