Proclaimed as the Niagara Region of Ontario's hip hop pioneer and Cornwall Ontario's first ever rap artist, Sikadime has been making noise in the Canadian hip hop underground scene since the early 1990's. With over 20 albums under his belt, the motivation keeps getting stronger and noticeable on Sikadime's independent 1st official Canadian store released 2006 album 'Rejuvenated'. A self described latch key kid while growing up split between Victoria (Esquimalt/Metchosin) British Columbia and Cornwall Ontario's Brookdale section, Sikadime took to hip hop once he heard 'O.P.P.' by Naughty By Nature on the his mothers' Much Music Dance Mix 92 tape. This was the beginning where alot of artists play tribute to Sikadime's development. The artists Sikadime will quote to playing a factor in his life are Heavy D, Treach (of Naughty By Nature), Ice-T, Kish, Salt-N-Pepa, DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Maestro Fresh Wes & Big Daddy Kane. By the time of Sikadime's 11th birthday in 1995, Sikadime was working at the neighborhood corner store stocking shelves after school. When he saved up enough money, he went to A&B sound in downtown Victoria and bought his very 1st keyboard and 2 track Tascam recorder. From then on over the years, the fascination of keyboards and synthesizers grew so did the love of making beats and demos. It wasn't till 1998 when Sikadime moved to the Niagara Falls Ontario area where he made a home and a name for himself. Sikadime was the confounding member of the now disbanded groups Tha Pacolyps & Joker'z Wild who opened up for local punk rock groups Ceremonial Snips, Sweet F.A. & Ruckus at local venues around the area while flooding the region with countless tapes and cds. The year 2003 saw Sikadime graduate from the institute of Recording Arts Canada in Audio Engineering and Mulitmedia Production at the age of 18. Just a month after graduation, Sikadime's group Tha Pacolyps were still going strong with the e.p. CD 'Motion Picture' when Death Row Records (home of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre & 2pac in the 1990s) came knocking offering a deal for Tha Row Underground which was a subsidiary label for underground artists. The group took the deal. Almost six months later, Tha Row Underground closed it's doors, the group disbanded and the album 'From Nowhere To Somewhere' got shelved. During those 6 months, Sikadime learned and grasped onto everything he could learn about the music business. He also produced & recorded the classic song 'What Kind Of Man Am I' which was the most downloaded song from the Tha Row Underground website. The song was also played on XM Sattelite channel 66 frequently during the summer of 2003. Early 2004 came around and saw Sikadime head to New York City as a in house music producer for upstart label Bomb Baby Unlimited. Then Sikadime had left the label after producing over a catalogue of 40 banging beats for the labels roster. In the beginning of 2005, the game lost Sikadime as he returned back to Niagara on hiatus but before he did so, he recorded the internet album Ice Mirages to be downloaded for free. Around mid summer 2006, news had started growing that Sikadime was secretly in the lab creating since September 2005 the anticipated and long awaited album ''Rejuvenated'. The album features guest appearances from Los Tha Don, Jay Plot 1-3ra and Moka Only. The album sees Sikadime handle everything himself from making the beats, recording, mixing, mastering to getting the album pressed up at Sony Music Canada's facilties and distributed to CD Plus stores by himself. '1996 saw me do my 1st demo, 2006 saw me do my 1st independent release. Let's see what I got in stored for the next decade' -Sikadime.
