Whats Your Sickness?

"ADR" a.k.a. Audio Death Ray, Radio Host.

The Dia-Nos was granted the pleasure of featuring on Mr. Braiden Gunn's Saturday night shares on CFUV's radio station. Now, this is a specific and very special individual. We'll never forget our first encounter with the infamous "Gunn". Nostic and I (Dia) were on our way over to the Mainland... (Vancouver, BC.) Mind you, anyone on the island... To get over has to indulge in a beautiful  BC Ferry ride of 2hrs. During our time over, we noticed a fella with his headphones in reading a book, or a rhyme book. What ever nature it may have been... We were more than intrigued. We proceeded to not follow through with our intuition. Miraculously later on in the evening we made a appearance at the venue MIA, a "Blueprint venue" to see SHIBA SAN. While sharing our love for one of our favorite artists we noticed a character sitting in the corner with absolutely 0 lighting on him. we engaged in conversation. What do you know. It was our friend we noticed on the Ferry. After several encounters we decided somthing was up. He wanted to get to know us a bit better and continued to invite us to his Radio Show. What an awsome guy. Check him out, and here is OUR Conversation we had with him over a hour&ahalf show!

Canadians dont pay attention they just "Rob Ford"

During the Rob Ford scandal Dia-Nos formed a parody track called Rob Ford, using Jay Z's track Tom Ford. The song was an anti pipeline song, the duo moking the fact that during Rob Ford legerdemain, The Canadian government passed a bill allowing the construction of the Enbridge Pipeline & other bills implementing Canadians human rights.

Dia-Nos made a music video, that reached 14,000 views in less than a week, Green Peace enjoyed the video and posted it on their blog along with other sites like Hiphop Canada,


not shorty after the video dissapeared from the internet, with Youtube not giving Dia-Nos a legal explination nor any explination for why it was removed from their site. 

Till this day Dia-Nos has not been informed for why it was removed,
