Five-time Juno Award winner Exco Levi presents the highly anticipated project “Black Creek Mix”. This full length Mixtape comes 4 years after his last album “Narrative” and numerous single releases in between.
In what has been a hard year for all creative, Exco was no stranger to challenges. During the pandemic Exco has focused his efforts on developing new skills such as production, while working with new burgeoning artists across Ontario such as some of the artists and producers on this project. He has also been coping with the loss of his long-time manager and friend Denise Jones (Jones and Jones Production) who passed away after a long illness in December 2020. These moments have redirected his attention around what brings him joy and quickens his passion for music.
The result of the challenges is the “Black Creek Mix”, which is a smorgasbord of new rhythms and vocal stylings. On this project you will hear Exco’s production skills which were enhanced by his studies with Abstract Learning and his collaboration with young beat makers.
Overall the project gives us a more evolved artist who is intimately engaged with each note of the project and the message of each track. Exco also dabbles in some love ballads like “Tek It Easy” and more up-tempo rhythms than is customary for his style. Expect audiences to be thrilled with this artistic evolution.
The Black Creek Mix will have its launch party August 28th 2021. It will be a hybrid event with in-person industry-based audience members and a global audience engaged through the simulcast provided by ILove SoundClash and set for YouTube and Twitch.
The event will have performances by Exco’s musical colleagues such as Tiffanie Malvo, Krytixx who is one of the up and coming artists he guides, Eyesus, Tristan 5 Star and more. Hosts for the evening will be DJ Wiz of VIBE105 FM and Danae Peart former CEO of VX3Exchange and VIBE105, with music provided by some of the top sound systems and selectors in Canada; namely Firekid Steenie, Journey Sound, King Clepto, Black Reaction and more. This will be a power-packed high energy event with all Covid19 safety protocols observed.
Black Creek Mix is available now for pre-order on all platforms.
