Regina, Saskatchewan artist Awaken Aries, otherwise known as Jesse Aaron, released his debut single “Take Me There” featuring Sam on July 29th. In an act of extreme generosity and caring, he has said that all proceeds from the digital sale of the track will go to the onePULSE Foundation, a non-profit organization that is helping the victims of the heartbreaking massacre that occurred at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida in June of this year. When the world stands together to prove that love is stronger than hate and love can overcome anything, what better way to help prove that point than with music?

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.
