Championed as one of North America’s first Grime emcees, Tre Mission releases his new studio album, Orphan Black today. Sharing an array of visuals to support the project’s singles leading up to the drop, Tre unveiled the video for title track, Orphan Black.
Orphan Black embodies Tre’s diverse influences, giving listeners an impressive cross section across genres, going beyond the Grime scene. The project follows Tre’s Bare Selection-released instrumental project, Bare Selection 001, and is his first full-length release since 2014’s JUNO and Polaris Music Prize-nominated Stigmata, and Tizzy Gang collaboration, Opps Next Door (2017). Orphan Black was produced by Tre and mastered by Toronto’s Freeza Chin, and features an array of guests, including Merky Ace on Sim Simma and EllzBS on Plus. The album highlights Tre at the production helm, fully focused and immersed in the creative process.
Tre introduced the record with the sensationally energetic and playful release of Hockey, and the darker introspective vibes from You Can Have. Following these previews with Hennessy Pool, Tre delved further in to the Trap world, solidifying the fact that the album explores every corner of his influence and give us an impressive cross section of it beyond any genre boundaries. Set against bold blood red and black backdrops, and cut away shots of Tre Mission performing to camera of the local streets, the visuals for Hennessy Pool sets the tone for the trappy, ominous beat and cautionary bars.
Tre Mission continues to hit out quality and intriguingly unexpected twists to his repertoire as he shares Orphan Black with the world.
