*LOVE rhoda dakar!@#$%!!! PEACE

toronto (still) rocks!@#$%!!!

yo, sup!!! it's sipreano... um, duh!!!
i just spent the last two weeks in toronto, ontario, canada's L-A-R-G-E-S-T city!!!
it was two years since my last visit and it was fun to return to the land of my birth so close to my 40th (*thanks mom and dad)...
despite visiting old friends, old restaurants, and even a quick stop at my childhood home for a moment of reflection, this trip was brimming w/ the feeling of now!!! toronto definitely has a different pulse than vancouver and it was thrilling to be caught up in its energy and to actively participate and engage w/ it.

i'm gonna write more about this trip and post some pics soon, but first, a video...

*it's not unusual for me to be late to a party, but i wanna send a BIG shout out cratery's kaewonder who got me fully hooked on the sounds of toronto-based BADBADNOTGOOD while out east... jazz cigarettes, 1 speaker, and 2 LPs of mind-bending tracks was all it took. after a trip to the legendary kops records (and another to the equally legendary play de record, more on that one later), i was fully down for the crown... SORTED and SUPPORTED, it feels right!@#$%!!! PEACE

straight to the hype machine's head

My archival and reissue work with Light in the Attic Records comes from a deep love and respect of music and music makers from the analogue era. It bridges generations, cultures, and eras of technology in the process. I travel this country (and beyond) in search of inspiration. I talk and connect with people of all backgrounds and have a strong desire to learn and experience new things. These interactions provide context and a better understanding of life, art, and history. Through this effort (and the support of many), once regional and long forgotten sounds can now reach around the globe. Music this good simply can't rest forever. It must be heard, preserved, and offered to the world. It is a total honour for me to compile such projects. I put my heart and soul into them. So let the music play on... Let the stories be told... We'll create new ones through this journey and let our love be known. #JamaicaToToronto #WayneMcGhie #Sipreano #LightInTheAtticRecords #LetItBeKnown 

*BIG thanks to Birdapres, LITA, and Vincent Cook for hand-crafting the JA/TDOT box many moons ago... PEACE
