Currently residing in Toronto, Flex The Antihero relocated from suburban Ajax, Ontario—where music was the link to a world beyond the mundane—Flex is an aficionado of almost all musical genres. With influences ranging from Nine Inch Nails, to Rage Against the Machine, to Kanye, and Nas, his philosophy is to indulge in diverse offerings, never closing the door on potential sources of inspiration. With such eclectic taste and little adversity to risk, there's no telling which direction Flex will go in next.
Flex is set to release his sophomore solo project entitled Born Rebels, October 2016, which boasts 10 original records that flawlessly blends his punk aesthetic and influence with the presence of live instrumentation in the production, with his own take on modern hip hop incorporated into the mix. Flex plans to tour in support of this album for the remainder of the year.
Prior to this release, he released his debut solo offering entitled “SALEM” which was co-premiered by hip hop authorities DJ Booth and Live Mixtapes, and has since garnered an avalanche of media attention and critical acclaim from the likes of 2DopeBoyz, Earmilk and OnSmash in the U.S., and The Come Up Show, Hip Hop Canada and Torontoist closer to home. SALEM proves that Flex is as creatively versatile as he is technically astounding. The album owes its rich, sonorous sound to the collaborative genius of producers Emerson Brooks and M Mac, resulting in twelve diverse, yet consistently banging records that showcase Flex’s rapid-fire flow.
