Album Notes
For two founding members of the Halifax-based hiphop crew Backburner, Fester and Kils sure do have their work cut out for them. Crafting soul-drenched beats and cuts for Backburner affiliates More Or Les, Jay Bizzy, Wordburglar, Toolshed and Jesse Dangerously, and balancing engineering/production duties at CBC Radio, Fester’s become a veritable army of one behind decks of all shapes and sizes. While Kils’ freelancing the industry entrenched waters of Toronto has earned him stints with SoulClap Universal and EMI Publishing, including studio work with Ali Shaheed Muhammad (of A Tribe Called Quest), Fabulous, Sizzla, and Brassmunk among others. As the Extremities, this duo brings a unique blend of jazz, soul and hiphop to the stage, combining both live recordings, gnarly VST’s, and dusty sample-laden beats. Their skills are heavily flexed on their upcoming debut record “The New Tonic: CBC Remix Sessions”, which began as a remix project for CBC Jazz Radio of the recently released “Tonic”, featuring Canadian jazz giant, Doug Riley among others. With nods from both the jazz and hiphop communities at large, The Extremities are poised for a Canadian sound system takeover. You’ve been warned…

Sound Bwoy

Wicked music
Solid Album... Happy to support independent music.

I originally heard your music on CBC radio broadcast (02/29/08). After that... I had to buy this album!!!

We need more quality music like this... I hope you guys make it to Toronto!

The New Tonic
Awsome!!! ... the marriage of Jazz and Hip Hop is the natural evolution of both...

Jesse Dangerously

the only star missing...
...is me! Fester and Kils are the very spine, the dorsal fin, the underarm of Canada's finest indie rap crew: Backburner. In addition to this fine jazzy massacre, you can find their beats and finesse on probably a couple dozen other albums, including the last two that I released! Fester did half the beats on Inter Alia, and Fresh Kils did about 55% of Verba Volant. (both also available here on CDBaby cough cough) But yo forget me, just buy this here masterpiece and know you're being well served by some innovative artists.
