So If you're an artist that plays an Electone organ as part of your show you're faced with a major challenge. How the hell do you get it to your gig!?!
These things don't exactly fit in the back seat of your car you know. How did the organ get to Mount Pleasant Rize safe and sound?
Delivered by The East Van of course! Check it out....
Shout out to my homegirl Sophia Danai & The East Van crew for putting together this little vid.
Listen to "THE END" from Sophia Danai

Here's a lil disco edit of 'Linda Lewis's Class Style' that I made a while back. I decided to put it out today for all you disco heads and music lovers. Just something cool and fun to play.
Also, check out U-Tern's version of Class, Style, Flair. You can hear the sample and how he flipped it into something dope.

Here is an official remix for a dope Montreal disco band called Creature. It was commissioned by the label, but I realized that know a couple of the band members from back in the day in mtl. I had the pleasure of playing a show with them in September '11 and trust - they rock it - a very charming performance with kids in the crowd just losin it.
Im fired up about the sound of this remix.. kind of like my metric remix, fun and italo-y. Released on Universal in Canada Feb 7, 2012:
