Mundial Montreal

Next week I shall be making my first trip to Canada for Mundial Montreal, one of the premier World Music conferences. Although I’ve always had an aversion to ‘music industry’ events, the World Music scene is a totally different affair and I’m very much looking forwards to catching up with everyone and seeing some of the acts they have performing there. 96 more words


The Reaping #25

Blue King Brown – All Nations

This wicked Australian Reggae band have just dropped a new album ‘Born Free’, the singer’s voice reminds me of Santigold – who always should have done more Reggae – and the lyrics are pure consciousness. 451 more words

The Reaping #20

Carnyvillains – Why Am I Here?

First up on this reaping is a whole EP from one of the best live bands there is. Their track ‘The Trial of Henry Jones’ has been a firm staple of our Big Swing Soundsystem sets for a long time and they’re a regular with us at BoomTown Fair, so it’s great to finally have some new tracks to play out from them! 383 more words
