Mic Diplomat- jamming w/Ghislain Poirier

Yush! Big tings a gwaan when I  performed in 2 shows of the Ghislain Poirier Soca Soundsystem tour last week. It was my first time performing  (and even meeting in person) with the Montreal based beatmaker since our recording of  the song Mic Diplomat  a few years ago. The first show took place @ Thursday Ting! in East Van and the second @ Broken Disco  in Seattle. The 2 shows were kinda different: since Ting! is primarily a reggae nite, the vibes steered more inna dancehall direction complete with Ghis’s touring DJ partner Kiasma dropping an international raggamuffin set . The Broken Disco show in Seattle had more of a techno, glitchy, electronica vibe mixed with ragga. But both nites did feature tracks from Ghislain’s new ep: Soca Soundsystem. Tracks like “Wha-la-la-leng” and other uptempo Nova Soca tracks seriously moved both parties. And I was rite along for tha ride hyping it all up pon di microphone. The Seattle show also featured me rocking the Mic Diplomat version straight up so the crowd got it live & direct! Big times fe sure! Nuff Respects to: Michael Red, Tank Girl, Lighta!, Ghislain Poirier, Kiasma, Thomas Fehlmann & Broken Disco…ONE LOVE  p.s. waan more Mic Diplomat? Check it here.
