Have you ever really liked someone but had no idea if they even give a damn? Take that feeling, add a dose of 70’s funk, a give ‘em attitude, and try playing “Do You Wanna?”
by Christopher Smith
The inevitable collaboration as SIF (Daniel Kelly) and SKAE (Lane Dorsey) began with a blueprint of friendship. Growing up only one street apart, they became fast friends from an early age, and each went off to find their own success in the arts – SIF starred on Degrassi: The Next Generation, while SKAE became a sought-after portrait photographer, capturing the likes of Johnny Reid, Ria Mae, and more.
After reconnecting in the summer of 2016, the boys realized they both had an intense passion for music – different skills, but the same taste in energetic beats that were anything but cookie-cutter. They started collaborating on a few tracks, blending SIF’s sharp hip-hop lyrics with SKAE’s genre-bending production. “It was just another fun way to create art” they tell us.
The result is a series of songs full of movement and energy, with memorable hooks you might hear on the radio but slick lyrics that you definitely won’t!
