Published Feb 28, 2007Fuckfaces is a popular monthly party in Toronto that has been going strong for over two years. Hosted by the DMoney crew with DJs Barbi, Cryo, DougieBoom, Fistfight and various guests, they play the latest in electro, ghetto-tech, Baltimore club, tech-house, booty, Baile Funk and even some rock and hip-hop. Februarys edition started filling up early with a music-loving crowd anxiously awaiting Thunderheists first Toronto appearance. The Toronto/Montreal duo are fairly new to the "party rap/B-more scene, but both Isis (Toronto hip-hop MC) and Grahmzilla (super producer/musician from Montreal) have been rocking stages for years under different guises and in different genres. The duo are steadily gaining interest and popularity from the blogosphere and their MySpace page, as well their legendary live performances at some of the dopest parties around. But could they rock the "screwface capital? From the moment they took the stage with Grahmzillas B-more flip of AC/DCs "Thunderstruck, it was a sure sign that indeed they could as they had the crowd totally hyped and ready to party. Hands were high in the air as Grahmzilla played their signature B-more/electro beats and Isis started rapping. They began the show with unreleased tracks "Anthem, "Red Wine and "Nothing2Step2 (a memorable joint as Isis sang off key in that Biz Markie kind of way). The room was packed and sweaty, people were dancing and singing along as Grahmzilla and Isis dropped their internet hits "Bubblegum, "Horny and "Suenos Dulces (the Spanish-tinged cover of the Eurythmics "Sweet Dreams). Isis kept the dance floor bumpin with some high energy and hilarious antics; joking for people to buy her drinks (yes, some obliged), she displayed a wicked sense of humour and brilliant interplay with the crowd. Grahmzilla makes sick beats and is a multi-talented producer and musician, and Isis is a fierce MC that has instant star quality together they destroyed Sneaky Dees and had Toronto eating up every yummy mouthful.
