Hip hop artist TEON GIBBS is quickly becoming one of the most well known voices coming out of Canada. His second soulful single from his own label (100 Collective Records) ‘Easy,’ is inspired by new love – one that has successfully moved from friends to lovers. For Teon, the relationship snapped into place and felt easy.
Teon says of his memerising offering:“‘Easy’ is meant to feel like floating, kind of embodying the joy of a new relationship with someone and trying to hold on to those moments of new love. I developed the drum pattern and then brought in an A-list Team. Falcxne, JT, Jaspa, Jub and Nate from Potatohead People and I created this song off of pure synergy. This genre-bending single feels like a milestone moment in my career growth, and sound exploration. Feel like it gives people a taste of what’s to come next.”
Originally from Botswana, Teon has lived in the UK, South Africa and Angola before settling in Vancouver, Canada. He’s currently working with 3 x Grammy Award winning producer Chin Injeti (whose Grammy wins include: Eminem’s Recovery, Marshall Mathers LP 2 and Lecrae’s Gravity) to perfect his genre-bending soulful trademark – a sound that’s already praised by the likes of Exclaim! and Complex UK.
