DON'T LET THE SUN SET ON THE SUMMERTIME RnB VIBES
Sept 30th, 2021
“Don't Think About It” is a vibey RnB jam with a funky boom-bap groove. A collaboration between Vancouver, BC based producer Timmy "Boom Bap" Proznick (for his new 'Blazing Eraz' project), and standout RnB singer Tiago Vasquez. They teamed up in studio with artist Mxd Mssg to co-write the tune which went on to win MusicBC's #CSC2021 competition. The lyrics take you to a simpler time — nights spent chasing romance before the moment disappeared over the horizon with the summer sun.
Asked about the process, Mxd Mssg said, "It was therapeutic to write a song about summer love. I think it brought us all back to those simpler times. It was a nice mental break from some of the isolation and stress of Covid." The friends came together when shows were being cancelled, and playing live wasn’t an option. They pivoted to spending their free time in the studio instead.
Tiago added, “I like bringing totally different styles together. We wrote something none of us could have made on our own”. He shared a behind-the-scenes moment too, “The writing went smooth, but we recorded it in the middle of the hottest week in Vancouver history. Our A/C had broken down, and we were battling heatstroke. We worked all night to get the track done in time to get it into the CSC contest. It was easy to channel the beach vibes — it felt like we were tracking in Jamaica”.
Timmy "Boom Bap" has been busy finishing multiple projects to be hosted under his Baptone Label. ‘The Blazing Eraz’ is his artist debut, but he’s no stranger to the Canadian scene. Proznick is an award-winning drummer, and a songwriter/producer who’s recorded, toured, and performed with Carly Rae Jepson, Kos, Maestro Fresh Wes, Shad, Tugstar, Chin Injeti, Moka Only, Flipout, Kapok, Dj Kemo, and many others.
Tiago Vasquez, the featured vocalist on “Don't Think About It” is well known for bringing his RnB sound to many releases with top Canadian hip-hop artists like Snak the Ripper, Kapok, Emotionz, Checkmate and Juno-winner DJ Kemo. He’s teamed up internationally with Adan Nuñes of Golden Ganga, and dancehall superstar Tugstar.
Mxd Mssg is set to release two new singles shortly. Both Tiago and Tim have several upcoming singles in the chamber dropping in the months ahead as well. Stay tuned for more to come from this crew.

Tiago Review #2
"Tiago is making his presence known in the west coast as a multi-genre artist who is taking the scene by storm. From hip hop, R&B, salsa, and reggae to cowriting and producing with local engineers, Tiago is a multi-dimensional musician with a sound that is soulful and exciting."

Timmy "Boom Bap" Review
"Start your week off right with Timmy Boom Bap's epically chill rendition of his track “Debut”. Tim’s playing is right in the pocket here. Tastefully highlighting and accenting certain parts of the track, playing with the space between notes -- this is hip hop drumming at its finest."
"He produced this killer track called "Deep In The Cut" which is available as a play-along track within our Drumeo Edge members' area."
" My track 'Deep In The Cut' went viral on the platform racking up almost 700K views and thousands of likes and reshares to date"
