Canadian artist Colin Munroe made a huge splash with his remix of Kanyes “Flashing Lights”. Last week we were fortunate enough to get a preview track off his new mixtape “Colin Munroe is the Unsung Hero” which is now ready to be released in conjunction with OnSmash.

This mixtape offers a glimpse into the world of this young talent whose highly anticipated debut album “Don’t Think Less of Me” drops in early 2009 on Universal Motown. Colin fuses aspects of rock, pop, hip-hop and electronic music, demonstrating his talent as both a musician and a producer. Done in collaboration with Sickamore & The Famous Firm and crafted over a two-month period in Dallas Austin’s Atlanta-based studio, it includes appearances by DC rapper extraordinaire Wale, Mickey Factz, Joell Ortiz, Baltimores own Blaqstarr and Skyzoo.

In support of the mixtape, Colin is playing a few select dates with Atlanta duo Proton and he’s also making a special New York City appearance opening for Wale alongside Kid Cudi and a DJ set by Mark Ronson. Catch him in the following cities:

02/12 Toronto, ON – The Boat (w/ Proton)
03/12 Los Angeles, CA – Viper Room (w/ Proton)
04/12 New York, NY – Studio @ Webster Hall (w/ Proton, Izza Kizza & DJ Blaqstarr)
