Mike Shabb and Nicholas Craven are slowly blossoming into the best artists to come out of Montreal and they've already found a powerful fan in The Alchemist.

Shabb has been busy in 2023, putting one EP on his own and the other with Craven, and he produced the entirety of Estee Nack's latest project Live at the Tabernacle.

On Dec. 9, The Alchemist took to X (formerly Twitter) to kindly ask for Shabb to drop new music.

"More new Mike Shabb please," he wrote. "Thank you."

Just under an hour after Alc's tweet, Shabb quote tweeted his post and asked his fans if they wanted to hear him collaborate with the legendary producer.

"Who want Alchemist x Shabbo???" Shabb asked on X/Twitter.

Shabb followed up his initial tweet, this time directly answering Alc's request for more music.

"Sewaside III loading," he wrote, referencing the third entry in his Sewaside series.

The day before Alc's post, Shabb had tweeted that he spent all of 2023 working on his album and deemed it "one for the books."

Shabb released his last project, Hood Olympics, in July and the quiet period since then could signify new music could be arriving sooner rather than later.

As for Craven, Alc simply wrote "Drums removed by Nick Craven" on Twitter and followed it up by saying that he needs a "drumless gang buster squad." He added that "Craven was on the lam."

Alc continued singing his praises for Craven when he quote tweeted the Montreal producer's latest track with Boldy James "No Pun Intended" with a series of fire emoji.
