Canadians Buck-N-Nice release “EMAG” video, the title track off their sophomore album release available now for digital streaming and purchase.   Wordsmith SawBuck and producer DJ So Nice, take listeners on a compelling journey exposing ongoing challenges and deceptions of the music industry.

Buck-N-Nice had this to reveal about their own integrity involving the industry, “We don’t focus on creating that next club hit or keeping up with the latest trends, and this follows suit. “It’s purposeful that our music reflects life experiences, the community that we’re surrounded by, and the general influences that have shaped us into artists and people.”

The continual flow of metaphors used by SawBuck capture the catch 22 artists experience, while DJ So Nice heightens the emotion with an arrangement of combative, yet classic Hip Hop beats.  Video directed and produced by Patrick Lozinski.

The record is three minutes of self-realization that’s inviting for listeners all around the world. Flies describes “New Gods” further below.

“The track represents a breakthrough moment in the sense that I felt super inspired again after a long period of feeling frustrated with my own process. Collaboration felt like a good way to fix this… and it did! Oscar had just released one of his debut tracks ‘Give Back What You Stole From Me’ and I remember hearing it on Gilles Peterson’s show and it really caught my ear because it sounded fresh and I hadn’t heard anything like it. I hit him up and we did a session. I also wanted to have a verse in there so hit up Jay – I’ve been a fan of his work for a while. Everything came together very naturally. The tune is essentially about reaching equilibrium in your own life… fresh starts and bettering yourself – so all things considered it felt pretty poignant and really resonated with me.”
