D-Shade


D-Shade was an opening act for Under Pressure special guests Smif-N-Wessun at Les Foufounes Electriques.

D-Shade’s debut CD, The Water Principle, was one of the best hip hop albums I heard for that year and I was looking forward to seeing him perform live on Under Pressure night.


Years ago, he would have been an opening act as part of Montreal’s hip hop supergroup Shades of Culture.



Just as The Water Principle was placed on my year-end Best of Albums list, Roll With Us has a slot reserved for itself on my Hip Hop Singles of the year list when the time is right.
