“The first of a 4-part Cratery featuring 2 of our favourite record nerds, Vancouver’s Sipreano and Toronto’s Jason Palma. On Session A, Sip goes one for one with Serious, Kaewonder and myself, sharing his love for all things Canadian, funky and undiscovered. Sip is not only responsible for breathing life into Light in the Attic’s “Jamaica to Toronto” compilation, but also the curator of the recently created voluntaryinnature.blogspot.com. He is also credited with creating the phrase “Rock Kokanee Flow”. Cratery 23: Session A featuring Sipreano. Enjoy.” – ARCEE

Cratery #21

21 09 2010

This month, the Cratery crew decided to embark on a journey to Montreal for the f*ck of it. Heat was copped, food was eaten and in less than 12 hours later we were back on the road. I can say from the bottom of my heart that I love that city.The city is great beyond measure and every time I go I have immense fun. This visit was no exception. Shouts to Arcee and Serious and the various vinyl vendors that made this trip both fun and worthwhile. We owe this edition of Cratery to y’all…

enjoy.

This month for Cratery, we’ve enlisted the help of none other than homie/digger/producer extraordinaire Frank Dukes.

For those unfamiliar with his stellar production work, get familiar. This is how it went down: we went 3-for-3 with a wide array of joints from psych to soul, west-Indian funk to Bollywood brainmelters.

You’ll notice that there’s no tracklisting for this Cratery. The information is classified. However, we did give you an eBay-esque description that may help you decode the secrets contained within our crates. Just kidding, the descriptions won’t help you at all.

Regardless of all of that, we present to you:

1. Fantastic Soul *Horn Stabs* SAMPLES-*cue burn,surface noise. Plays fine*
2. MONSTER FUZZ SOUL!! 45 RARITY
3. “Ain’t no sunshine” HIP HOP BREAKZ
4. Shady Brook LP Hard-to-Find Soul!
5. Barbados 1977 WIRL Disco Funk
6. Funky 45 Plays Great!
7. Great Grits and Gravy Soul

Psych & Soul

15 05 2010

psych & soul

Every Sunday at La Hacienda (640 Queen St. W) from 10pm til last call (2AM), yours truly (Kaewonder) plays Psych rock and soul records for your general amusement and pleasure.The Grumpy Owl slings the drinks, Sometimes we have special guests. This week’s special guest is none other than famed Canadian producer Ian Blurton (his list of acclaim is quite impressive, although I’m too lazy to list it here, so I’ll just y’all the wiki page) he’s been collecting vinyl for YEARS, and has an ear for the weirder pieces of black wax out there in addition to a collection that would make a lot of lesser-collectors (myself included) cry.

Expect to hear some bugged-out joints that you may never hear in the setting provided.I’ve put together a little 45 minute mix with the kind of stuff that you can expect to hear every Sunday, which can be downloaded here.

Hope to see y’all out this Sunday night!

Meeting of The Minds

24 03 2010

This is but one of many pics taken one night after 24 Carat Tuesdays @ Andy Poolhall. Late night eats at Taste of China.

Not sure what it is that (L-R Benzo, Jaz and T.R.A.C.K.S) find so amusing, but whatever it was it must’ve been good.

shouts to the others in attendance that night,too. Pretty sure Bozack Morris was in the cut alongside Big Jacks (?), Arcee the homegirl Natalie, Asicks and myself (?) shouts to whomever I’ve forgotten. That was a great late night food flex with hella jokes and good times.
