DJs Hunnicutt and Co-op come from Winnipeg, where I spent 7 or 8 of my formative years. Hunnicutt was in Farm Fresh way back when, and later joined forces with several Pegtown instrumentalists to form possibly the greatest group in history, The Hummers, who have never toured beyond the 'Toba as far as I know, but if they did, they'd be huge.
Both DJs are heavily involved in Peanuts n' Corn label/crew, responsible for much of the hip-hop/mashup madness in Western Canada
NYC's Chazology has their new '98 Dodge Neon Mixtape, which has just put Peg City on the map for mixtape blogosphere action. You can read more about it, and get the original mixtape links here.
In Toronto news...Huge credit to More Proof generalissimo Johnny Hockin for holdin' it down at SPIN Gallery last Friday. Uffie and Feadz skipped out on the show, but you brought the heat...keep that shizzle up.
Also, featured on the show yesterday was Swearwords, part of the More Proof crew, who's making some mad remixes these days.
