Emcee, Producer, DJ / Droppin’ Science Productions / Toronto, ON, Canada
Like most Canadian musicians, Muneshine was and is by necessity an independent artist. He is a producer, a writer, an accomplished and accredited mix engineer, and a performer. Muneshine has found great success outside of Canada. Since 2005, Muneshine has released 3 major label projects in Japan, and contributed production and vocal appearances on countless more. All considered his sales in this territory alone top 30,000. His first release (Phocus – A Vision and a Plan) debuted on HMV Japan’s hip hop charts at #8. Since then, Muneshine has established a strong and loyal fan-base worldwide with releases in the United States, Australia, Korea, The United Kingdom, Brazil and The Netherlands.
Not only has Muneshine released popular projects overseas, he has collaborated with a number of popular hip hop favourites, such as: Pete Rock, Sean Price, DJ Spinna, Buckwild (D.I.T.C.), Guilty Simpson, Rob Swift (of the Executioners) and many more. Muneshine has earned his reputation among these and other artists for his integrity, standards, dedication, and desire to improve and inspire. In the past two years, Muneshine has established an unstoppable working relationship with fellow-Canadian emcee/producer D-Sisive. The duo recently won SOCAN’s coveted Echo Songwriting award for the song Nobody With A Notepad taken from D-Sisive’s album Let This Children Die. The chemistry between the two is undeniable, and proven through repeat appearances on Canada’s college and community radio charts. D-Sisive’s single, Like This (produced by Muneshine) debuted at #1 when released in October, 2009. Not only popular with listeners, the song caught the attention of hip hop connoisseurs and taste-makers around the globe such as DJ Premier, DJ Eclipse and many more. Since then they have released the album Jonestown, Jonestown 2, and are currently working on Jonestown 3.
In 2012, Muneshine released his latest solo effort There Is Only Today, his first under the Droppin’ Science label. There Is Only Today not only showcases Muneshine’s growth (and strength) as an MC (and producer), but also delivers with incredible production from DJ Spinna, Buckwild, !llmind, M-Phazes, Suff Daddy, Freddie Joachim, Bix, BoomBaptist, Jeff Spec, and Shinogo.
While the sounds are familiar, we see Muneshine venturing in some exciting new, and more personal directions. He has also brought along some of today’s strongest contemporary artists, such as: Emilio Rojas, D-Sisive, Ghettosocks and others. There Is Only Today is a showpiece for Mune’s illustrious career and a serious payoff for his ever-patient loyal fans.
An ambassador for Canadian hip hop, Muneshine has gained experience in both his own country and abroad. He has established himself as a respected artist, and continues to live his dream of creating and promoting honest and timeless music without compromise.
