EXCLUSIVE RELEASE - LIMITED EDITION
Perhaps the most important collaborative Hip-Hop song in Canadian history, “Northern Touch” was introduced to the world in 1997 by a posse cut from the Vancouver group The Rascalz featuring guest appearances from Toronto giants Kardinal Offishall, Choclair, and Thrust. This song also introduced a Vancouver up and coming star, Checkmate.
DJ Kemo from The Rascalz cooked up an EPMD inspired beat that was originally made for a mixtape song for Jay Swing (Tape #18) but later became the multiple award winning iconic Canadian track and has held its weight since its 1997 release on Figure IV Records.
In an extremely proud event celebrating this monumental song for the first time ever on 7 inch vinyl, FlipNJay Records is highlighting “Northern Touch” as their inaugural release! The disc comes with the catalog number FNJ-001, updated full colour sleeve artwork by original Rascalz dancer and artist DEDOS, and a re-mastered vocal version and instrumental on the b-side.
FlipNJay Records! Ain’t nobody can bang with us!
