Zac Flewids - ABC's (prod. Canis Major)

ARTIST LIMELIGHT: ZAC FLEWIDS

We are back with our artist Limelight series and this time we are shedding some light on 17 year old Vancouver artist Zac Flewids.

Growing up in Burnaby, Zac had a passion for the entertainment industry starting early in life which began with producing and directing his own short films.
This passion would always involve music, where he would listen to a wide variety of artists, old and new. His interest in hip hop, however, took a more serious
approach after becoming exposed to Logic's mixtape "Undeniable". He would soon learn that he could use music as an outlet to relieve stress.

Starting with a slew of remixes over some of his favourite artists beats, Zac Flewids first grabbed our attention with his complex, dynamic flows and his precise syllable
work that is reminicent of the musicians he's studied. Late 2014 saw the release of his first mixtape "Highest Common Faktor" which was accompanied by several music videos.
The video's themselves were directed and produced by Zac & Sebastian Busse and demonstrated his showmanship and comfort in front of a camera.

 Zac is currently gearing up to release his second free mixtape `Conversations By The Apple Tree` due this coming Tuesday, August 4th. It mainly reflects upon overcoming personal insecurities,
temptation, and growing into an emerging musician through the eyes of a west coast suburbanite. Although he holds the sole vocals on the
project, it`s received production from a host of different people including: Canis Major, NewDersey, Ricky Vela, CMBeats, Triad Matilda, Harlow, Rhakim Ali, MjNicols, Lasik,
NP-Courtney, and Donato. You can catch Zac Flewids yourself tomorrow as he performs at the Electric Love Music Festival(Aug 1st)( http://electriclovemusicfestival.com/ )

There are already several music video's available from his new mixtape. Check out one of our favourite "ABC's" below and don't forget to check out his page here: https://www.facebook.com/FaktorPulse
