Newselph is a Hip Hop producer from Canada who has the one of a kind gift to be able to capture the raw and the refined in a single beat. 


After spending ten years in a self-imposed creative exile perfecting his craft, he emerged from beneath piles of snow with an array of samples, breaks, and bars to speak life into the listener's ear. His inspirations include cultural cornerstones like Mos Def and Deepspace5, as well as Canadian mainstays like Shad and Rel McCoy. As a Producer, Rapper, and Reverend, he knows that excellence is all in the execution as he skillfully creates art that has copious amounts of bounce and purpose. 


After dropping a carefully considered yet potent mix of music, the man met the machine when Newselph signed on the dotted line with the indie label, Illect Recordings, in early 2020. He continues to create boom-bap bops for the traditional heads as well as the forward thinkers. Regardless of what side of the river you choose to sit on, get ready to immerse yourself in an exhilarating experience that will positively affect you from now until forever. 



"Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. From a philosophical standpoint, kintsugi treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object rather than something to disguise. The same is true of If It Ain't Broke, Remix It. Even though Newselph deliberately 'broke' and took these original songs apart, he lovingly rejoins the estranged elements and puts them back together while adding new chapters to an ever-evolving story. The cracks become contours, and there is much more to discover beyond the seemingly chipped edges. With this masterful work, Newselph adds a new vivacity to the lifeblood of the remix and makes a strong argument as to why remixes should remain, if not more so, a staple in Hip Hop music and culture.


If It Ain't Broke, Remix It streams on Friday, December 9th 2022, on Illect Recordings.

"‘The Art of Living’ is another masterful mix of thought-provoking lyrics and thumping beats. From start to finish Poems delivers these superb rhymes with the same crisp snap as Newselph’s drums, and both artists strike resonating chords throughout each of the album’s 11 excellent tracks."

- Joe Walker (THIS ENT) 

"Sareem Poems teaches us 'The Art of Living' on a power-packed Newselph produced platter. Check out the exhilarating underground opus."

- Insomniac Magazine

"Fans of thoughtful, laid back hip-hop from acts like A Tribe Called Quest and The Roots will be right at home with this record." - VIBE

"...Don't be fooled into thinking that this is a throwback project aimed to cash in on nostalgia. It is very much a forward-thinking manifesto of two men who have survived in the valley and thrived on the mountain top. The chemistry between emcee and producer is impactful from the opening and sparks loving recollections of dynamic duos like Gang Starr and Run The Jewels. Each man does their job and does it well...
