Steps To The Peak is an eight track love letter to the city of Montreal. It was entirely written, produced, recorded, shot and designed in the 514, with the exception of Notion‘s mixing and mastering in Toronto (he’s part of The Movement Fam so it’s cool).

Ultimately, it’s a story of two artists connecting through the love of music in order to express their ‘amour’ for the city, the country and the culture of Hip Hop.
