DJ Factor Reps Saskatchewanian Hip-hop

DJ Factor is an up-and-coming dj and producer from Saskatoon, that hotbed of Canadian hip-hop (although, to be fair, the Canadian Praries have been lighting up the northern rap scene recently – consider Cadence Weapon).  Although not yet a household name, Factor’s latest effort, Chandelier, has people talking.  Featuring the likes of Sadat X, Myka 9, Moka Only, and Josh Martinez, the album mixes the electronic-tinged sensibilities of indie-rock with straight-up dope hip-hop.  Check out a couple of his tracks below, courtesty of this interview with Wired.  And, after the jump, the video for “Good Old Smokey.”

    If you’re looking for dope, check out Factor’s older compilation album, Time Invested. One of my favourite albums of all-Canadian hip hop.
