MICHIE “BAHDGYAL” MEE RETURNS TO JAMAICAN ROOTS WITH “BAHDGYAL BUBBLE”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TORONTO, ON – December 31, 2012

A legend in Canadian music returns to the spotlight for 2013 with the release of her latest single and viral video “Bahdgyal Bubble”.The Queen of Canadian Hip-Hop, Michie “Bahdgyal” Mee makes her highly anticipated return to the studio where she records her new EP Bahdgyal’s Revenge under her Indy label MBM Entertainment, and MBM Publishing Inc. This award-winning emcee known to be ahead of her time when she incorporated elements of rock, death metal and dancehall into hip-hop and rap, now embarks on yet another musical journey that will incorporate a variety of genres and turn rap and dancehall on its head.  Her journey begins in Toronto with the recording of “Bahdgyal Bubble” and takes us back to her country of birth, Jamaica where she teams up with several historic artists, and the up and comers of tomorrow.

Michie’s long list of credits include a Juno nomination for her 1992 smash hit “Jamaican Funk” and extensive touring with Public Enemy, Queen Latifah and fellow Canadian Hip-Hop artist Maestro Fresh-Wes.  She has also showcased her talents on the silver screen as an actress in both film and television, having worked with Hollywood mainstays L.L. Cool J and Eddie Griffin.  In 2012, Michie was inducted into the Stylus Spinfest Hall of Fame for her remarkable contributions to Canadian music.

 “Badgyal Bubble” is a high-energy introduction to her fans old and new of her evolution as an artist.  A perfect blend of Rap, Dancehall, and Reggae – Michie has proven that her artistry has withheld the test of time, and just as the closing lyrics command, “you never know dem haffi respect Michie!”

DARLING NICKY FOLLOWERS TO RECEIVE $5 DISCOUNT FOR 2013 NYE SPEAKEASY

SENYE_Rev1

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
12/31/12
THE SPEAKEASY NYE RETURNS

TORONTO, December 27, 2012 – In just a few days, DJ Kariz, DJ Thera-P and DJ Riccachet have teamed up with KITCH BAR to create a New Year’s Eve to remember.

Just over a year ago, DJ Kariz created THE SPEAKEASY, a party that remembered when there were no bottles, no booths, and no bs. Just a night where everyone danced, everyone had a great time, and by the end of it, everyone was family.

Last year, when he was asked to do a New Year’s Eve party, he said no. But then he realized that he could throw a SPEAKEASY. He partnered up with DJs Thera-P and Riccachet, the two bad brothers of Sweet Touch Foundation, and the SPEKEASY NYE was on. By the end of the night, the three agreed to throw an even bigger one.

Now that night has come.

Monday December 31, 2012, THE SPEAKEASY NYE returns.

As a thank you to readers and supporters of Darling Nicky, who has been of such great support to the Karizma team this year, we’re offering a special discount on tickets.

Now, at most parties, the parking costs $20.

At the SPEAKEASY, $20 is the regular price of admission. But, just enter the code “darlingnicky” when purchasing your tickets and Darling Nicky fans pay only $15.

Nope, that’s not missing a decimal or a zero. Fifteen dollars.

However, there are only 30 available.

Bring the friends.
Bring the fam.
Come on your own…by the end of the night you’ll be family to us.
Come for the music.
Stay for the rest of the year.

WHEN: New Year’s Eve
WHERE: Kitch, 229 Geary Avenue
TIME: 10 until sometime in 2013
MUSIC: Hip Hop, House, RnB, Reggae, Soca, Old School, New Jack Swing… basically, anything but fistpump.
DRESS CODE: dress to dance.
