  • AfroDubSesssion-Amir

    SLF presents Afro-Dub Sessions
    Saturday, May 29, 2010, 10 p.m.–4 a.m.
    (and every last Saturday of the month)
    Rose Live Music, 345 Grand St., Brooklyn, NY

    Sound Liberation Front (SLF), an arts and music organization based in Brooklyn, presents Afro-Dub
    Sessions: a monthly party at Rose Live Music in Williamsburg that combines live music and DJs to
    celebrate the best in Dub and African-influenced sounds.

    This month?s party will feature an Africa-inspired guest set by Amir from the world-renown record-
    collecting duo Kon and Amir. Revered for his extensive knowledge of music, Amir has made a name for
    himself compiling rare grooves for the duo?s legendary Kings of Diggin?, On Track and Off Track releases
    on BBE Records. This includes the just-released Off Track III mix CD, which features eclectic African
    disco and soul from the period following Fela Kuti?s mid-70s creative peak. Amir also heads the record
    label arm of Wax Poetics magazine, and has been featured in XLR8R, Spine Magazine, The Source,
    Scratch, and Urb.

    As it does every month, Afro-Dub Sessions also features a pair of live performances by resident band
    Super Hi-Fi, which combines Afrobeat, Dub, live remixing and special guest appearances to create their
    signature Afro-Dub sound. The five-piece collective features members of Aphrodesia, Slavic Soul Party,
    The Superpowers, and the Blue Man Group.

    SLF?s resident DJs Linh, Q-Mastah and Lil Tiger will bring their diverse musical selections to the
    turntables to round out the night.

    Afro-Dub Sessions is dedicated to the idea that dub, born in Jamaica, and African musical styles like
    Afrobeat, Afropop and Afrofunk are natural partners in the origins of global dance music. Each month
    SLF explores these connections by hosting a different guest DJ specializing in Dub or African-influenced
    styles. The June 26 party will feature New York reggae specialists Deadly Dragon Sound System.

    SOUND LIBERATION FRONT is a Brooklyn-based non-profit organization devoted to the power of music
    as a socially liberating and unifying cultural force. Last summer, the group organized the Sound
    Liberation Festival in Brooklyn. The event featured hip-hop legends Brand Nubian; electro-Afrobeat
    pioneers Chico Mann; Ticklah; DJs Kenny Parker, Cosmo Baker, and Ian Friday; and, workshops by
    Afro Mosaic Soul and DubSpot. SLF also hosts SoundLib Wednesdays at Moe?s Bar in Fort Greene.

    By Joseph Plambeck – NY Times

    Mark Gorton is a confident guy. He’s confident about his ideas. He’s confident about his enthusiasms. And he’s confident that his successes — like making money on Wall Street and promoting alternative transportation in New York — provide a record that backs him up.

    But that confidence faces a new test. Two weeks ago, a federal judge ruled that he and the popular file-sharing service he created, LimeWire, were liable for copyright infringement and could be forced to pay up to $450 million in damages. [Read More]

    Unearthing, the new project from legendary comic writer Alan Moore, isn’t a comic book at all; it’s a box set. On the audio recording, Moore reads his story aloud, while Crook&Flail– the duo of Fog main man Andrew Broder and Themselves/Subtle avant-rap guy Doseone— provide the score. Various other musical luminaries also contributed: Faith No More’s Mike Patton, Mogwai’s StuartBraithwaite, Jesu’s Justin Broadrick, and Hella’s Zach Hill. [Read More]

    It’s due July 5 in the UK and July 6 in the U.S. via Lex Records.

    Another hidden gem from the Halcyon Blessup archives surfaces for your listening pleasure. The Percussionlab family blesses us during their 4th Thursday instore residency with more exclusive, deep and dubby selections served with impeccable mixing skills. Machinedrum opens the set with his own brand of focused heat, Praveen brings in the lovestep and deepdubstep and liondub closes up with a bit of both. Eclectic, souldful, yet hard hitting and precisely executed.
