Strange Froots
"It is with great pleasure that we welcome Strange Froots, our Hip-Hop On Rotation Artists in Residence. Under the guidance of our team and various guest mentors, the Montreal's all-female hip-hop/r&b group composed of Sage, Naïka, and Mags will have the opportunity to record and produce an EP in our studio, have 200 copies pressed and distributed to campus and community radio across Canada. Learn radio skills and experience professional development workshops with some of Montreal's finest industry individuals. The residency will end with an official EP launch that will happen by the end of June 2016 -- Stay Tuned!!" CJLO, (2016)

Annick MF
Annick MF is a writer, media maker and community organizer based out of Tio’tia:ke (Montreal). In her creative and community work she explores the politics of race and gender that surround her body and communities on a daily.

YosoJi (he/him) is a Franco-Algerian trans rapper. Passionate about writing and words, he began creating short stories and poems at age eleven. Marginalized, rebellious and sensitive, he uses rap as an outlet, as a means to express himself and especially, a way for him to exist.
He built his notoriety in France by taking part in battles that were widely broadcast on the web and have accumulated millions of views. With four projects behind him and 50 stage appearances, YosoJi is full fledged member of the French underground rap scene.
After coming to Montréal over a year ago and outing himself publicly as a trans person, he is currently busy working on a mixtape using "old school" sounds, very close to his own identity and preparing a new album that will contain sounds that are completely opposite to his universe.
