Skillfully combining the best of hip hop, reggae, trap, and rock with earworm hooks, Toronto’s Darenots are the genre busting sound of the city. Since forming in 2015, vocalists James Mascola and Rev along with CJ Hinds and Swav Pior of illScarlett, are a veteran lineup that produce an unforgettable live experience which intuitively marries contagious electronic beats with driven guitars and body blasting rhythm.
Between party anthems like “Heavyweight” and “Good Good” and the chill grooves of “911” and “Focus to Faded”, The Now Is Truth is a sophisticated debut EP that effortlessly moves bodies to the beat. Released in early 2016 on NVRNF/Law Records, the ‘ep’ features collaborations with Camm Hunter (Down With Webster), Kaleo Wassman (Pepper) & Grieves (Ryhmesayers Ent). Since the release, Darenots have performed to packed houses alongside Dirty Heads, Hollerado, illScarlett, July Talk, DZ Deathrays, USS, Walk Off The Earth, and Pepper.
