Small World


August 2017

Danny Fernandez is Def3, a well-established Regina-based hip-hop artist whose unique journey has helped pen an engaging narrative and curate an eclectic sound. Spending the better part of his youth travelling the world via hospital ship shaped Def3’s productive outlook and wealth of creativity. His 2014 album WILDLIF3 (produced by Saskatoon’s Factor) garnered a Western Canadian Music Award for Rap Recording of the Year, graced the top of the iTunes Canadian Hip Hop charts in overall bestselling album, and dominated both Canadian and US college radio charts (Earshot Magazine, CMJ). His follow-up “Small World”, released fall 2017 (URBNET) includes guests Masta Ace, Del the Funky Homosapien, Mystic, Moka Only, Dertmerchant (Sweatshop Union), Probcause, and turntablist Skratch Bastid. A collection of songs and collaborations with friends that Def3 has crossed paths with over ten years of touring and performing, Small World packs in 11 tracks of sharp writing and a tight mission statement, all of which is fueled by soulful and funky production from Denver’s Late Night Radio. His approach to Boom bap fits Def3 like a glove, whether it’s providing a guitar-laden swagger on “S.O.S.” or capturing the emotional turmoil of “Carry On.”

Produced by: Late Night Radio. Recorded at: Blue Door Recordings, Regina and Headspace Studios, Vancouver BC. Released: August 4, 2017
