Piu Piu, a term coined here in Montréal, is the experimental hip-hop movement that has garnered much notice in these past couple of months. Although the heart of everything beats is centered in Los Angeles, the composition of Francophones, zestful culture, and a generally desirable environment for hubs of artists to hibernate and get crafty breeds an interesting cluster of remarkable producers coming out of Montréal. Presented by Artbeat Montreal, they introduce the Piu Piu Documentary - a broadcast about this emerging community with appearances from artists like Poirier, Sarah Linhares, KenLo Craqnuques, Kaytradamus, and many more. An exclusive album has also been made available comprising of nothing but the best piu in and around town, cop this right here!
The official launch will take place on June 8 at Cabaret Underworld. It includes All City Records special guest Onra, as well as over 10 artists presenting live sets. For more information, click here.
