Toronto-based hip-hop artist, Die-Rek, has signed with Illect Recordings. He has been a staple in Canada’s underground scene, so be sure to check out his past work on bandcamp. The emcee and producer had the following to say about the signing:
There’s a lot of legacy on this label. Tunnel Rats, L.A. Symphony, Scribbling Idiots, Lojique, Phat K.A.T.S. and Deepspace 5. These are household names that will live on in the culture, and that’s the aspiration. It sets a standard for me and puts a confirmation in my heart that I’m in the right place. It’s an honor to sit at the table amongst legends and a Manager that has 20+ years in the industry. God set me up! I’m ready to grab the baton, keep it moving and take it to another level. It’s my turn!
