Aron The Alien is a hip-hop artist from Ottawa, Ontario. He released his first album, Prince Luke DCXIII, on March 11, 2015 via Macho Man Music. The EP contains five songs including the lead single “#WTFU.”
When listening to Prince Luke DCXIII, I was immediately drawn in when the vocals and instrumentals dropped. It is difficult to not want to press ‘repeat’. The element of the album that made the album stand out was the lyrical content. Although the tracks were well-rounded, the choruses and hooks were well written. My favourite tracks on Prince Luke DCXII were “Choking” and “COTC.”
Without reading about the artist prior to listening to the EP, I would not have guessed that it was a debut album. It definitely feels like it is beyond a first release. I am anticipating hearing more from Aron The Alien.
If you enjoy hip-hop, I would definitely recommend picking up a copy of Prince Luke DCXII on Bandcamp now. It is worth your time checking out.
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
