"BREAK THE STIGMA"
Broken Record isn't your average alternative hip hop / R&B album, but the first stage of a much larger vision for the empowerment and healing of everyone...
Collectively, we aim to raise awareness, increase understanding, and eventually break the stigma associated with mental health and spiritual well-being through music, because who doesn't love cool songs?
As you go through the album, the theme shifts from dark to light like you're healing with the music.
Each song is a transition into the next.

The Founder of the Broken Record project.
Boyojoy has been producing and writing various genres of music since he was 14 years old and shifted into Hip Hop and R&B as he got older. Now he wants to spread an important message to the world through an album he produced with the help of 6 featuring artists.
After discovering meditation back in August 2017, he then dived deep into ancient and esoteric teachings only to see how many mental health issues stem from spiritual imbalances. After battling with chronic anxiety, depression, and many other states of mind, he now wants to break the stigma while inspiring others to heal so that they too can be left empowered with a sense of belonging.

Key-J Mitchell is a versatile Toronto based human (read: rapper, artist, and philosopher). Pulling musical inspiration from environments including a steel pan yard, a Catholic choir school, and that unending angsty existential phase that everyone born in the Internet age seems to go through, his music dismantles all preconceptions regarding gender, autism, and humans’ raison d'être. Constantly battling himself and the world while under the influence of mental norm divergences such as ADHD, autism, and Capitalism Resentment Syndrome, he aims to create a surreptitious sonic soundscape to synchronize your mind, body, and soul.
