This one's to watch out for. 

Toronto-based Safakash caused a bit of a commotion with his debut 'larger-than-life' EP titled Q1. This Iranian-born Canadian used his passion for music to translate his emotions through the musicality of his sound. 

I've always felt like an outsider growing up due to my background. I was an outsider to the insider, but also an outsider to the outsiders

His latest release, which is premiering today, is his single "Give" a 6-minute slow-paced 808-style tune with a cinematic-edge to it. His passion for film is something he utilizes during the process of creating his music, blending hip hop influences with slow-paced drops and beautiful and impactful lyrics layered on top of the production, at the right time. 

Throughout the project I'm really just looking for me, in terms of sound and personality.

Inspired by the musical styles of Kanye West and Childish Gambino, Safakash entices an infectious flow of rap melodies while delivering a steady dose of that Toronto sound. Currently working on his next project Q2, Safakash plans to release chronological sets of EP and an anthology all within this year.

Listen to "Give" right here, right now:
