(February 27, 2012 - Toronto, ON) – After a 5-year whirlwind of tours through 11 countries, shared stages with some of contemporary music’s great talents, and a personal life that has held its share of highs and lows, Taiwanese-Canadian emcee/producer/turntablist LEO37 has finally emerged with his brand new EP, FANFARE. Produced entirely by Toronto-based multi-instrumentalist, John Poon, this record, though brief, demonstrates a LEO37 who, lyrically, has never sounded more comfortable or confident. Marrying poignant, vivid lyrics and a highly stylized sense of cadence with a sonic mélange of analog and digital textures, this duo, during a time when everything has been done before has somehow created something altogether fresh.
Intentionally featuring a limited cast of guests (Lillian Chan/Vocals – You & The Nite and Tim Shia/Drums – Fire Dance, Footwork & Fanfare) and album art from award-winning animator/illustrator, Howie Shia, FANFARE is available now!
Better in darkness Yes, I do shine in stardust and hardluck and subtle hints of twilight I’m finite Amidst the mist I might find infinite bliss where I lie Wrapped in blanket statements to keep my heat in tact And ignore the unsure in order to keep my seat in fact Not quite a thrown but I’m saving up all my dough And jewel by jewel I will rule in the moon But soon the dusk is crushed again I’m bust again and dammit back in my room My kingdom come and go and back again And then I do my best to conceive the eve forever consume
But as day begins I tend to lay within my bedding Letting pressures compress my head and all I’m dreading Responsibility fills Killing chances of resting But I take to grinding when I wake to finding your….
Face in the Mornin’ Wake up the world cause it belongs to me
I’ll shout until the whole world hears me I’ll shout until there’s nothing but the wind Then rest in our bed with the rest to begin
