The Xove (@the.xove) is expanding - much faster than I anticipated, to be honest.
For those who don't know- I've opened my own recording and songwriting house named "The Xove" and within the space, have been engineering a list of music projects by artists here in Toronto- not to mention providing a house for some of the most innovative ideas and concepts from local artists to thrive and be built within.
The Xove is now in need of a new location- a larger and more private location. Although this move is one I've envisioned since its conception, it was always a long term goal that I pictured myself achieving over the next few years.
However, I've accepted that time is Now.
For the past few weeks, my head has been exhausted with the thought of numbers, figures, budgets, etc. because with an unexpected move like this comes the incredibly daunting feeling of not having an answer to the question: "How the f**k am I going to afford this?!" But today, while in the studio's current location- I flipped to the very last page of my rhyme book to write and I found this blueprint I sketched about 3 or 4 years ago- A sketch of what I would want my future creative space to look like.
This sketch was made before I decided to create a workspace for myself outside of my home, before I had a name for the studio and definitely before I would even think to open it up to the public years later.
Seeing this sketch quieted my fears and reminded me that I'm being guided, watched over & used as a conduit to bring about something that is SO much bigger than me.
I can't wait to share the progression of this chapter with y'all & for you guys to see the new space!
The new space will be providing several different infrastructure strengthening initiatives for Hip Hop artists here in Toronto, as well as some really dope sources of support for the musicians, singers, producers, songwriters & spoken word artists here in Toronto.
It's 1,400 sq feet👀
I move in on October 1st.
And you'd better believe I'm gonna need some help... #MusicWillBeMadeInThisHouse🏠
