TORONTO-BASED ALTERNATIVE RAP NEWCOMER DICHOTOMI IMAGINES A BETTER FUTURE ON INFECTIOUS NEW SINGLE ‘STF 17’

Published

Introducing Toronto-based alternative rap newcomer dichotomi with their brand new single titled ‘STF 17’. The soulful and infectious lo-fi rap track comes just in time to take over our summer playlists, and is the lead single for dichotomi’s upcoming debut EP that is set for release later this year. ‘STF 17’ is the anticipated follow-up to last year’s fan-favourite ‘plush’, which was a massive radio hit with the likes of CBC Music in Toronto, and Wave Of The Bay in Florida, to mention a few.

Produced by fellow Toronto musician Frizzy Astro, ‘STF 17’ is a catchy melodic rap offering, which sees dichotomi – who wrote the song when they were sick during the pandemic and couldn’t be outside – in a very hopeful mood, as they imagine better times and fantasize about being able to enjoy summer time in Toronto once again. Over lush synth keys and sparse lo-fi instrumentation, dichotomi showcases their infectious flow, clever lyricism, and carefree energy, to great effect.

Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘STF 17’, dichotomi says, “It was the first pandemic winter, and I was really sick… I couldn’t go outside because the weather, and I had no energy or motivation to make life inside more enjoyable because of the mental and physical effects of the pandemic. At a real low point, I started fantasizing about summers in Toronto and told myself that ‘everything will be better in the summer’ – as soon as I said it aloud, I felt compelled to write a song on that theme.

The track quickly took a political lean as I began to ruminate on the social, political, and economic forces that forced me into such a fragile position in the first place. ‘STF 17’ is most definitely a critique of our capitalist society, but with the added goal of offering some levity — allowing us to hope for a more equitable future. Be critical, be angry, be sad, but don’t let the state of this world keep you from turning your face to the sun every chance you get, and tirelessly seek the tiniest moments of joy”.

Highly recommended if you like the sounds of Noname, Tierra Whack or Chance The Rapper, dichotomi is for listeners that like to discover new things every time you listen to a track – they are for fans of lyricism, authenticity and exploring new sounds. Born in Florida and now living in Toronto, dichotomi burst onto the scene in 2019 with resounding music, led by good vibes and wholesome themes that are intended to inspire hope and validate their listeners.

GOODVIBEVILLA IS A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH IN THE MUSIC WORLD Music, one of the most powerful forms of expression, can trigger intense emotions among individuals, sow the seeds of movements, and even pave the path for revolution. It plays a crucial role in this world and even helps people survive the challenging phases of their lives. Unfortunately, this medium of expression is losing its charm, with ‘so-called’ music artists emerging from every corner of the world. There is a significant decline in the quality of music today, and this rapid rise of musicians is one of its leading causes. It is not that these artists are not good enough, but there are far better music artists that do not get to appear at the forefront because of the industry’s saturation. Among these music artists is Luis Beltre, known as GoodVibeVilla. He recently released his EP, which is sweeping the music enthusiasts, specifically those in love with golden-age hip hop, off their feet. The hype around his three-track EP, including “Grippin,” “Let it Go,” and “Girls,” is so high that it convinced Villa to plan the second part of his EP. Born in New York, Luis deeply admired music and respected musicians irrespective of the genre. It was the perfect form of escape for the young Luis, who, with an ambition to acquire success in this world, was ready to take the world by storm. Even though he is popular as an entrepreneur and investor with an inclination towards restaurants and even convenience stores, this is not the only thing Luis is focusing on as he is on his way to establishing an identity in the world of music. Luis’s love for music was genuine but becoming a musician was not something in his plans. One thing that he was sure of was that he wanted to make it big in life. Yes, music was a source of comfort and solace for him, but that was just it. He knew the journey would be tough, and with music, Luis was sure he could achieve anything and everything he set his mind to. Even when he was in college, he worked a job at Trap. While working, he spent some time freestyling, something he found to be very exciting. It was the perfect way to end his day. Today, Luis has taken up the moniker “GoodVibeVilla,” and is making it big in the world of music. The young music artist, who is a successful entrepreneur and investor with two music production houses, GoodVibeMusic and Deaf Star Studios, is proving to the world that with a strong will, anything and everything is achievable. From freestyling as a teenager to releasing his EP to the world, Villa has shown immense potential. His EP is indeed promising and proof that life works in mysterious ways. Life always finds a way to help people come face to face with their true calling. Not only did Luis fulfill his lifelong dream to establish a successful life but also got a chance to turn his love for music into a profession. Luis, also known as Villa, is ready to set the music industry on fire and convince the world that life is never too short of pursuing one’s passion and turning their dreams into reality.

He kicks up an infectious party vibe with his uniquely genre-blending take on contemporary hip hop. Focused on clever and stylish vocal outpourings across double-time flows and a mellow tone, devotion and work-ethic unite through sound, the rapper notes influences among the likes of Rick Ross, Da Baby and Tyga, but ultimately paves his own way as a boldly versatile modern artist.

He is currently locked in a two year contract with Hanger 5 ENT. They have been really pushing his brand and taking his reach to new nights.

Musical Inspiration

“My biggest supporter was my mother I lost her last year to a heart attack but the strongest soldiers make the biggest mark on the world.” The Hip Hop artist says he took that loss but now his soul shines through more in the lyrics he writes & melodies he creates. “I know she opening doors I can’t open down here,” says Quest Varnado. Right now the artist is working on merch sales and catching up on music videos. He has a Catalog or over 45 tracks ranging from hip hop, alternative, pop, and R&B. “My catalogue is pretty large so I need to focus on my visuals and create a brand I can sell.”  In five years Young Varnado hopes to be touring over seas. This was his response when we asked him his overall goal for his career, “I plan to go global, and anything less isn’t an option.  That’s the mission. That’s the goal.”

Latest Release

September 15th I will be dropping my first single under my new label Hanger 5 Ent. Called “Maze Runner” Produced by Anthony Williams. As I mentioned the rest of this year is about rebranding. So as for what’s next. The goal is brand deals, and building face value. I hope to use my influence to inspire and expand other business endeavors and artists like myself.
