Event Details

NoLoveNorthern is proud to announce its second show, and its first in Halifax: Don’t Sweat The Technique, which will take place at Gus’ Pub on July 11.

Billed as an epic night of hip-hop (Don’t Sweat The Technique is an allusion to Eric B. & Rakim’s classic and highly influential 1992 album), the concert will feature Ghettosocks, Uncle Fester, C Stone-Léon & French, and Bad Friends.

Founded by Jayden Duplessis (aka JayTheKidd), NoLoveNorthern is a burgeoning record label, talent management agency, and live concert promoter dedicated to showcasing the best in hip-hop talent. The company’s inaugural event was a sold-out show at Glasgow Square Theatre in New Glasgow, NS. After a two-year hiatus, during which Duplessis graduated from NSCC’s Music Business program, NoLoveNorthern is back and eager to make a mark in Halifax’s hip-hop scene.

Ghettosocks, a Juno-nominated hip-hop artist and member of the Backburner collective, has opened for Nas, Afrika Bambaataa, and GZA and performed globally. DJ Uncle Fester, an OG of the Canadian hip-hop scene, has worked with Ali Shaheed Muhammad from the legendary group A Tribe Called Quest and arranged and mixed tracks for producer ChanHays’ album Here.

C Stone-Léon and French are two rising rappers/producers based in Halifax who have previously gained recognition from Ghostface Killah and Redman. They are intent on shaking up the local scene as innovative, fresh voices. Bad Friends, a record producer and DJ, has accumulated over half a million streams across music platforms and is signed to One Seven Music, distributed by Sony Music.
