Full Force 011

My press write for Full Force 011 is up at S.T. Holdings, and will of course be included with all promo plates once released in March. Have a look. :)

Chook - Trainpsot [Misanthrop Remix] German powerhouse, Misanthrop, steps up for his first contribution to the Full Force stable with a masterful remix of Chook's sinister roller, 'Trainspot'. Flexing his signature style of high voltage funk and chest rupturing bass, Misanthrop adds another layer to the legend in this "can't miss, must have" remix classic. Once again, Full Force proves to be one of the most respected outlets in the game for pure quality in future funk beats.

Chook - Sound Of Time Hazy eyes awake to a dark, mysterious setting. Suspense lingers as the introduction begins. The invasion of static mutates the airwaves, opposing a major threat to recovery. Sharp, skin cutting percussion sets the senses on high alert, preparing the body for the breaks. Thick, grungy midlines shiver feverishly in cold textures, while an edgy rolling bassline coats the walls of the sound chamber. The white noise regains control of the vessel, paralyzing all running systems and thus forbidding any chance of outside contact. The signal is set, the fate is sealed. The rugged, minimal funk pollutes another mind and executes it's venomous destiny.



Big up Radic, Chook and Misanthrop!

I Met The Walrus

I have this real keen interest to see this movie short, I Met The Walrus, directed by Josh Raskin from Toronto.

In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon's hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview. This was in the midst of Lennon's "bed-in" phase, during which John and Yoko were staying in hotel beds in an effort to promote peace. 38 years later, Jerry has produced a film about it. Using the original interview recording as the soundtrack, director Josh Raskin has woven a visual narrative which tenderly romances Lennon’s every word in a cascading flood of multipronged animation. Raskin marries traditional pen sketches by James Braithwaite with digital illustration by Alex Kurina, resulting in a spell-binding vessel for Lennon’s boundless wit, and timeless message.

Sounds good right?! Well, there's a bit of buzz about it as it's in the running for an Oscar this year in the 'Best Animated Short Film' category. Watch for it to win on Sunday and tune in to Bravo after the Oscars to see it for yourself!

The Good Ol' Hockey Game

Heeyy, we were in the building last night for the Leafs worst loss of the season, and the Panthers largest win in franchise history! (BOH PANTHERS!) Great seats, couple beers, lopsided game, good times!

Thank god we've got connections, cause if we had to pay full price to watch the hometown team get masacared like that..I'd be fuming mad. Thanks to Big Ron and Panthers PR guy Justin for hooks on the tix.
