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 “Donâ€™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 Austinâ€™s Atlanta-based studio, it includes appearances by DC rapper extraordinaire Wale, Mickey Factz, Joell Ortiz, Baltimores own Blaqstarr and Skyzoo.
