We’ve got a supersized episode of the Drum Circle-Jerk podcast for you guys this week.
Brent Tactic, formerly of Kansas City and now in Brooklyn is a man of many music industry roles but he always has and always will be a DJ. That’s how I first met him and how we’ve come to work on a number of projects together (yes we are friends and yes, this is how the music industry works).
Wile Out, one of my favourite global club labels and really, come to think of it, one of my favourite labels in general has just released this collection of remixes of a track by Brazilian producer Leopold Nunan.
We’ve got an awesome premiere for you folks today! It’s from Toronto producer/artist Nomvdsland.
In case you were unawares. We have a podcast now. Yes, we know, it’s the whitest ass thing to do these days but we couldn’t stop ourselves as the urge is embedded in our very DNA.
Stop the presses! Extra Extra, three white guys who think they’re smart started a podcast. This has never happened before! All sarcasm aside. Fil, Eytan and myself (Brice) have started a podcast and we need you to listen because if you don’t we’ll become depressed and kill ourselves and it will be all your fault and you will have to carry that for the rest of your lives.
Head of the storied local Bedroomer label and my collaborator and colleague on numerous Walmer projects, Eytan Tobin is one of the greats of the current Toronto musical landscape but he’ll be the first to tell you he isn’t.
BRT in this case stands for “Black Raspberry Thunder” not the usual meaning of “Boofing Roofies for Tibet”. It’s a type of beer he drank. It must have been good!
I’m upset. I hope you’re upset. Every day, every year, you see the change. Don’t pretend you don’t notice. Don’t play stupid. Our weather is changing. I’ve been on Earth almost 40 years and it’s undeniable. The wind blows stronger. The rain falls harder. The winter is harsher and the summer is scorching. This is beyond the realm of “someday”, this is today, this is right now.
