Description

Hailing from two Saskatchewan cities – the “Bridge City”, Saskatoon, and the “Queen City”, Regina, Samurai Champs is an emerging Canadian recording and performing R&B/hip-hop duo. Consisting of new-wave rapper Jeah and future-R&B singer Merv xx Gotti, the duo draw influence from their Southeast Asian heritage while taking pride in their urban-Canadian identity. Their sound has been likened to that of current Canadian hip-hop/R&B contemporaries such as Drake, The Weeknd, and Tory Lanez.

Since the release of their previous mixtape, which won SaskMusic’s #1 Saskatchewan Album of 2015, Samurai Champs release their debut EP, Crayons EP. Recorded and mixed by former Urban Heat/Universal In-House Producer, Miguel Dey, and mastered by Colin Leonard, mastering engineer behind Bryson Tiller’s critically acclaimed, certified-platinum debut album, T R A P S O U L, Crayons EP exhibits a contemporary approach to the new-wave generation of hip-hop/R&B. 

The official music video for the EP’s first single and title track, “Crayons”, exclusively premiered on Noisey, VICE magazine’s online music and media outlet. Crayons EP itself premiered on Exclaim!, Canada’s leading alternative music & culture magazine. By the end of 2016, Crayons EP proceeded to win second place in SaskMusic’s Best Saskatchewan Albums of 2016, and was highlighted in Chart Attack’s yearend article, The Best Music of 2016 From Cities Around Canada.

Within the past year alone, Samurai Champs have proven themselves to be one of Saskatchewan’s fastest rising hip-hop/R&B artists. They have performed across Canada, playing in music festivals such as Canadian Music Week, MoSo Fest, and BreakOut West. They have also performed internationally in Hamburg, Germany for Reeperbahn Festival 2016. Having shared the stage with international hip-hop heavyweights such as T.I., Flatbush Zombies, and k-os, DGS Samurai Champs continue to captivate audiences with their dynamic and dramatic live shows.

    "Working on building their community rather than tearing others down, there’s a positivity to their sound that is infectious, and spreads way beyond the hip hop community” - The Line of Best Fit

    Issuing from Regina and Saskatoon, new-wave rapper Jeah and PBR&B singer Merv xx Gotti make up one of our province’s fastest-rising R&B/hip hop groups, with their melodic, positive, and hypnotic tracks appealing to a wide audience of music lovers (they also reached  #1 on our 2015 Top 10 list with “The Hard Tape” - then as a trio, with Nono Ryan). DGS draws influence from their Southeast Asian heritage while taking pride in their urban-Canadian identity, with a sound that has been likened to that of current Canadian hip-hop/R&B contemporaries ...
