Maestro Fresh Wes

Maestro Fresh Wes

The Godfather of Canadian hip hop, Maestro Fresh Wes calls on synth-pop songstress Lights for his latest video for "Desire" off his 2013 collaborative album Orchestrated Noise. Already in rotation on MuchVibe, the MuchFact supported video, directed by Josh Warburton, pulls visual inspiration from David Cronenberg's canon of body-horror. Using reverse filmography and stop-motion, Warburton showcases acts of surreal espionage and supreme creative self-control as Lights' hair entwines itself with the electrical system of an office tower, eventually taking control of the entire city skyline.

Maestro Fresh Wes recently took the stage at TEDxToronto to perform and spread his inspiring message to "stick to your vision". In the new year, a "Gold Medal Remix" of the song "Reach For The Sky" soundtracks a CBC montage which features our Canadian athletes who are headed to compete at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games. Catch its premiere during the CBC's Olympic preview show airing January 1, 2014. The montage will also air throughout the Games.

Maestro Fresh Wes will appear as part of our Fab 5 Cabaret, tickets are available now through the River Run Centre
