Critical Praise:

“Not a lot of musicians can claim to have the attention of the biggest music names in their country, or have toured with one of the most successful acts of all time and have released an album all before the age of 24. But Canadian artist Pressa is one of the few that would fit the description.” – Complex

“Pressa’s come a long way from his native of Driftwood and is approaching the business and art of music making like a seasoned veteran.” – Vice

“Be it the whip, the club, the speaker, or casual listening, you simply won’t regret pressing play on this project. Each of them bangers with plenty of replay value…” – Lyrical Lemonade

“Holy F*CK this is insane, this guy has one of the craziest voices I’ve ever heard.” – No Jumper

The Announcement:

Blending the street savvy he developed living in Toronto’s Driftwood neighborhood with his supernatural sense of melody, Pressa is quickly becoming one of his city’s biggest stars. Adding seven new songs to his most personal project to date, Pressa announces Gardner Express (Deluxe). With a title that references Pressa’s last name (Gardner) and the Gardiner Expressway, a major highway running through the downtown core of his hometown, the Deluxe EP finds the artist exploring how the rough conditions and cross-cultural exchange inform his life and music, packing in the snapping flows and effortless hooks that have him rising in the rap game on both sides of the border.

The Background:

Pressa captured rap fans’ attention in Canada and the U.K. by garnering millions of YouTube views for 2016’s “Wass Gang,” landed on a tour with Drake, and emerged as a local cultural sensation. Pressa made his mark with the inimitable mix of his street-oriented lyrics, melodic hooks and high-pitched voice, making him a fixture in the Toronto hip-hop scene.

Recognized for an impressive list of collaborations (Murda Beatz, UK hip-hop don, Giggs, Lil Uzi Vert) over the years, the Canadian rapper continued his hot streak in 2020 with features from Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow, Jackboy, Flipp Dinero and more. Aligned with the new crop of artists dubbed “ones to watch,” Pressa is on track in his journey to becoming a household name.

No stranger to releasing full bodies of work with mixtapes such as, Press MachinePress A Brick, and Prestige, 2020 was a prime display of Pressa’s growth and versatility as an artist, culminating with the release of his EP, Gardner Express. The EP features “OTM,” “96 Freestyle,” and “Head Tap” ft. Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow, which resulted in coverage from media juggernauts like Complex, a global Apple Music Beats 1 premiere with Ebro Darden, and over 44M worldwide global streams, together to date.

Pressa is applying a renewed vigor to his music and collaborating with likeminded writers, producers and artists on the rise. Inspired by the diverse streets of Toronto and a multicultural Jamaican/Filipino upbringing, Pressa is eager to share his passion and unique music style with the world.
