SOUNDTRACKING: “Juice” Shares A Video Mixtape In Advance Of Their Waldorf Show

August 9, 2012.

by Daniel Colussi | I think it’s fair to say that, historically, hip hop hasn’t totally flourished in Vancouver, or even Canada for that matter (no offence Maastro, Moka, K-OS, et al). We just don’t make rap stars the same way that NY, LA, and ATL do. Locally, we’re still living in the shadow of the Rascalz’ killer-good Really Livin from back in ’92. But what about Juice? I’ve been impressed with all their performances that I’ve seen to date; be it in an alley-entrance hovel or a legit bar – this band is always a good time. Front lady Genesis’ dirty raps give them a naughty angle that draws the attention of boys and girls alike, and she’s not shy live. The foundation for those NSFW rhymes is an interesting combination of tight, minimal rhythms and wandering, processed guitar lines that waft in and out of sync with each other…

As their name suggests, Juice is something refreshing to take in and enjoy. Below you’ll find a Juice-curated 12 track video mix specifically prepared by the band to serve as a kind of party-starting primer to get you in the mood to catch them play the Waldorf this Saturday night…
