Peephole/Beach was loosely based on me going to Jamaica and “YRWEONTHISBEACH?” was supposed to be about getting lost on a beach in Jamaica. I didn’t get lost on a beach in Jamaica but it made me think about experiences feeling lost. It actually turned to be about being in cottage country and feeling like you stepped in a time machine because there aren’t any black people out there. Where does one go to find the Black people when you’re up north.

Featured this dude, local Toronto rapper, SepTOon the blog a long time ago. Caught his set at Manifesto last weekend. Told him how much I liked his remake of Wu-tang's “C.R.E.A.M.” and he graciously laced me with CD copy of his latest album, Almost Nevr.
For my old school UK punk fans, they will be performing this album, Leather, Bristles, Studs And Acne in full. Hit that YouTube player for a trip down memory lane or to get familiar if you’ve never heard the album before.

Yeah, yeah, I know we’re more like on the verge of late September at this point but good music is good music and who couldn’t do with a reminder of our all too fleeting summer this year now that we’re all back in fall, cool weather gear??! :(
San Fran-based producer @Worthy has been a driving force within the US dance music scene since the early 90’s, in 2001 he moved to San Francisco where he’s been working closely together with among others the Dirtybird crew and also started his own label Anabatic Records.
His eclectic sound is reflected in this exclusive mix done for us in Discobelle on which we get to hear a perfectly executed and funky mix of future house, bassfilled sounds and straight up techno.
