Moving Mirrors is the name of the new CD from local poet and emcee Smoky Mirror.

Smoky is known for his contributions with Ancient Principals, A Comox Valley hip-hop crew from a few years back. He also took part in the Freakin Coffee open mic nights, as well as many other community events around Courtenay.

His CD release party took place recently on Denman Island; where Smoky grew up and went back to record and release the album. Smoky explains about the project:

“The story started for me three years ago now, I was living on Denman at the time going to college at NIC. There was a small room on the side of my house which became my studio, and is where I spent most my free hours recording and putting together the album (Moving Mirrors).

“During this year or so on Denman, I had a few friends come by to help on the project including Silas Crowe (from Hornby) and C-Rex (from Denman). The well known Canadian hip-hop producer DJ Moves supplied all the beats for the album, so this made for a wide variety of sounds and styles.

“Now some time later in 2012, I’m happy to announce that it is finally finished. With the help from Wonderbro from Port Alberni, who did an excellent job on the mastering end, and Benjamin Dunstan at (Pomfennworks Studio) who designed the incredible cover.”

If anyone is interested in purchasing a copy you can pick them up in Courtenay at Bop City Records or Winds of Change for $10.

“The release party went well. We had a good crowd who came out and enjoyed the crews conscious vibes. Smoky brought with him his friends and fellow hip-hop artists, R.I.N.O and Tobes (from Vancity).

“As well as Dizzy D and Def Stef (from Vic). They each brought their own unique styles to help Smoky Mirror with his show.

“They were joined by local Bounce Collective DJ DPMagee, who rocked the house with his funky dance hall, trap and dub styles. Smoky managed to sell a good amount of his CDs in hope to spread his music around the island a bit.

“There are many different projects keeping him busy lately, his newest being a hip-hop label called Ocean Fresh Productions. It’s a lot of hard work, he explains, but with the right knowledge, and daily dedication he feels he’s sure to succeed.
