Our Basement,

Have you ever really liked someone but had no idea if they even give a shit?
Take that feeling, add a dose of 70’s funk, a give ‘em hell attitude, and try playing “Do You Wanna.”

Our inevitable collaboration as SIF (Daniel Kelly) and SKAE (Lane Dorsey) began with a blueprint of friendship. Growing up only one street apart, we became fast friends from an early age, and each went off to find our own success in the arts – SIF starred on Degrassi: The Next Generation, while SKAE became a sought-after portrait photographer, capturing the likes of Johnny Reid, Ria Mae, and more.

After reconnecting in the summer of 2016, we realized we both had an intense passion for music – different skills, but the same taste in energetic beats that were anything but cookie-cutter. We started collaborating on a few tracks, blending SIF’s sharp hip-hop lyrics with SKAE’s genre-bending production. It was just another fun way to create art.

The result is a series of songs full of movement and energy, with memorable hooks you might hear on the radio but slick lyrics that you definitely won’t.
