Bass Drive

Here's a cool doc on Bass Drive Wednesdays, Montreal's biggest weekly club night. I had the pleasure of performing at the night in Oct/10 + Aug/11. Vilify does an excellent job of creating a good vibe for the kids out there. Both shows I was a part of were unreal and full of love. Shout outs to Wicked Fat Noize, Elo!i & Heights, and everyone else featured.

Talib Kweli- Distractions

New Talib Kweli video from his upcoming Prisoner of Conscious album.

'Our heroes are dead to us
Spirit that bled through us
Endear us with the spirit but the flow is so foolish
What you hearing is precision
The people so thirsty, what they seeing is mirages
But this passion Photoshopping and your YouTube collages
Coming through like Collossus
Exposing the false prophet
Taught how to do the knowledge so I’m never off-topic
A lie is like a potion
First it gets you open
Then you swallow whole straight for the truth
Fuck the chaser, skip religion and the politics
And head straight to the compassion
Everything else is a distraction...

Throwing Snow- Too Polite EP

Currently listening to the new Throwing Snow EP released on Local Action.

Much respect.

Too Polite EP (Local Action) by Throwing Snow

Following drops for Sneaker Social Club, Domino and Alexander Nut’s Ho_Tep label,
London-based producer Throwing Snow makes his debut on Local Action with an
ice cold three-track EP.

Opening track ‘Pyre’ is the straightest thing here, with vocals from Augustus Ghost
(Throwing Snow’s collaborator in Snow Ghosts, who’re in the process of recording an
album for Black Acre - home of Hyetal, Blue Daisy and more) riding bitter hi-hats and a
heavyweight bassline, while ‘Equuleus’ (also featuring Augustus) takes things into lo-fi pop
territory, with a swelling synth climax kept together by tight drum rolls.

The stand-out ‘Too Polite’ is the title track for a reason though - it’s torn-out jungle driven
by a jagged Reese bassline and rolling toms. Each track on this EP is totally different in
terms of style, tempo and clarity, but it’s all brought together by a bitter, icy feel.

As Local Action’s last release of 2011, the first run of vinyl copies will come packaged with
a CD-R label compilation, featuring 100% unreleased material from T. Williams, Contakt,
Laurel Halo, Throwing Snow, Damu, Jacques Greene and more.
