fiesta soot sept 13

this Saturday in Manhattan, the Soot gang’s all here. (a real accomplishment considering we’re nonstop touring and live on 3 different continents).

then on Sunday I’ll be setting up shop alongside other “Superstar DJs” at the Brooklyn Flea and selling some choice records from my collection.

info on both events:

FIESTA SOOT – Sat Sept. 13th @ Bowery Poetry Club. 308 Bowery, NYC
$5 b4 11pm, $8 after. 10pm-late.

“to celebrate the release of Maga Bo’s debut album, Archipelagoes (in stores on September 22nd), we’re uniting the world-travelling Soot gang to a Manhattan rendezvous on Saturday September 13!!

Maga Bo from Brazil will unleash a special live/DJ set incorporating material from Archipelagoes. Come find out why his live sets are so in-demand (Turntable of the Hudson, London’s Fabric, and Berlin’s Transmediale all came knocking on his door this month). Fresh from their successful Europe tour, DJ Rupture & Jahdan Blakkamoore will present their dubbed-out soundsystem set for the first time in the US. Be sure to check Rupture’s new video for his upcoming mix album, Uproot.

Pirate-turned percussionista Filastine is gonna unveil material from his forthcoming album on Soot, and DJs Geko Jones & Eliel Lucero will round things out with the latest in guaracha y bass, cumbia, and dubstep.

last minute special guest — La Yegros, one of our favorite vocalists for Buenos Aires hopping scene, will bring her special flavors of Arabic-tinged beats + vocales for a live PA.”


then we eat a very nice breakfast or maybe even brunch and meet up at Fort Greene’s mighty Flea:

  1. i’m guessing this show was epic, and i wish i could have been there. i did get the chance to see filastine the night prior in DC, which was fantastic. exactly what i had hoped for and expected.

    here’s hoping for a soot records east coast tour in the near future.

  2. show was amazing after a near-catastrophic start – ill post about it soon. and yes, Soot Tour (east coast) is in the works, we’re hoping to get Sonido Martines or El Hijo de La Cumbia up for stateside dates although the visa requirements dont make that easy…


  3. fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly with the planning, i keep seeing flyers for this show and maga bo in SF or chicago and get decidedly envious. glad you all pulled things off in nyc, despite the troubles.
