Montreal fun with family - also new audio: radio interview!!

Made it to Montreal for a  hot minute to play with the Tropical Vortex crew (The Salivation Army and DreamsComeTrue).  I was also lucky to be interviewed by the historic and amazing Venus radio crew, I later learned this show was co-founded in 1998 by my old friend and also amazing scholar (check her new book) Erin Macleod!!

Click on the pic for the link to the archive, music is good from jump, the conversation starts about 30 minutes in, interspersed with lovely music from many great people. Many thanks to Aditri and Xania for the good conversation!



And then Friday was the party! It was a nice space, and we had a sort of 2:15am rush including a crew requesting azonto, which led to an azonto/dembow/ukgarage set for the last 45 minutes or so..
Here we are at the end of the night with some other amazing friends and talents:

Dreamscometrue and I had met a few years back when he booked me in Halifax for an awesome event - a combination public talk/DJ set (in this case the public talk was a panel discussion with some amazing thinkers/scholars/artists) - this is something I am doing more and more of and really enjoy. there will be more of them coming in Europe in the next month, watch this space for details!
