I had an incredible weekend. A weekend full of music. It’s been amazing and you’ll be hearing about it for a few weeks here on Silent Cacophony.
First off. I had the incredible honour to sit down with Brother Ali and interview him. I’d been waiting a long time for him to come up to Canada. He is definitely one of the best artists within hip-hop right now, if not ever. I love his music and have been a fan for years. He put on an amazing concert but even better than that, I was able to sit down with him for an in-depth interview. I talked to him and his DJ BK-One and we got an amazing two hours of radio to share with all of you. Stay tuned for that here. Secondly, I went to the Jack Richardson Music Awards (JRMAs) on Saturday and sat in on some great seminars and panel discussions. I will be blogging about some of that in the near future as well.
I also went to the 2010 Youth Competition at Fanshawe College and interviewed all of the bands performing. I was completely blown away by this Battle of The Bands. These high school kids had so much talent, it was just inspiring. I will be putting together the interviews into an hour-long radio show and podcast as well.
And last but not least, I attended the Awards Ceremony last night and was able to talk to some of the hip-hop nominees. I interviewed Ngajuana and Mc Moore. This will also be available as a podcast soon.
All in all I think I got about five hours worth of radio to put together this week. It’s going to be a lot of work but I’m really excited about bringing you this content. You can also look forward to interviews with Grand Analog interview and Lucy’Lo for 84.85. The Grand Analog interview is already editing and transcribed so that will probably be the first radio segment you’ll see and hear this week.
Don’t forget to check DOPEfm for all the great interviews and mixsets we bring you each and every Saturday night on 93.3 CFMU in Hamilton, Ontario.
Wow, there certainly is a lot to look forward to here on the blog. I have a lot of work in front of me to edit and put together all of these shows but I will do it. Please be patient and stay tuned. Let’s chase this content together (sorry couldn’t resist the pun on my name)
