/// Following the success of last month’s inaugural party, we are proud to present the second edition of the AFRO-DUB SESSIONS: a monthly party that combines live music and DJs to celebrate the best in Afrobeat, Afro Groove, Reggae, Dub, Dubstep and more.

Our featured guest DJ this month is EMCH of SUBATOMIC SOUND SYSTEM. Subatomic Sound is an internationally known, New York-based collective that produces, records, and performs live and electronic music rooted in the diaspora of 70′s Jamaican dub reggae and sound system culture. EMCH also hosts Subatomic Sound Radio on BrooklynRadio.net and KEXP’s enormously popular Mo-Glo broadcast on Radio New York, 91.5fm. On his shows, he flexes the latest music from every continent around the globe where traditional sounds intersect with urban club culture. ///

It’s that time again:

This week at SoundLib we’re proud to present special guest The Double-J, founder of Foundation Media and Trilogy Records.

Double-J is a veteran of the game, with years of experience running his independent label and his promotions and production company, both in D.C. and here in New York. He’s got deep knowledge of music and will bring his Hip-Hop and soul sensibilities to the decks to complement the Music Nerd All-Stars‘ selections of soul (new and old), Hip-Hop, afrobeat, reggae and much more.

We’re on at 9pm this week and we go until 1am. And, as always, it’s FREE all night. Thanks to everyone who trekked through the snowstorm last week to keep us company. The weather should be a lot more cooperative this time around. Hope to see you there. …

Our FREE party SoundLib is back in business, and this week we’re featuring special guest DJ Gibril Kuyateh (aka The GiKu Experience), founding member of Afro Mosaic Soul and host of The GiKu Experience Radio Show on Giant Step Jukebox.

We featured one of Gibril‘s mixes here last summer, so I’m really geeked to have him come through and do a set.

He’ll team up with me and Q, aka the Music Nerd All-Stars to bring you eclectic selections of soul (new and old), Hip-Hop, afrobeat, house, reggae, jazz and much more.

We start at 8pm this week, so we won’t keep you late.

Check out some picks from the last SoundLib we did back in January.

The homie and fellow DJ / producer, DJ (Omar) Morsy, recently had his DJ equipment stolen. As a result, his friends are putting together a benefit to help raise some dough to help him regain the tools that allow him to make his living. If you’re in NYC, it would be great to see you out at the benefit. Help out the homie – break off some bread, offer some used equipment or hook-ups. There will be DJs, live performances and OPEN BAR.

If you can’t make it out and are interested in making a donation, Morsy is offering digital downloads in exchange for your contribution. Hit him up at nanachill@nanachill.com. Anything is appreciated!

Haroon Bacha

For those of y’all in New York this week, I can’t recommend this event enough.

Writer and human rights activist Austin Dacey has put together this amazing event showcasing the musical talents of HAROON BACHA,
a Pashto singer who fled censorship and persecution from the Taliban and has made a new home for himself here in New York. Haroon will be performing this Wednesday at one of my favorite venues, littlefield in Gowanus, Brooklyn, as a prelude to Human Rights Day. Here’s the info:

Music is a Human Right: A performance by Haroon Bach
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2009 @ 8pm | $10

Presented by Austin Dacey and co-sponsored by FREEMUSE: The World Forum on Music Censorship and the Center for Inquiry

@ littlefield
622 Degraw St.
Brooklyn, NY

A celebration of Human Rights Day featuring Haroon Bacha: The singer the Taliban tried to silence

Haroon Bacha is one of Pakistan’s most celebrated Pashto singers. Because of his music’s messages of tolerance and pluralism, he became a prime target of the Taliban’s deadly campaign against music. In 2008, he was forced to flee the country, leaving behind his family, and seek asylum in New York City. Determined to continue making music, Haroon has recorded a new album and begun working with Radio Liberty in Washington, D.C., where he hosts cultural and musical programs with the Pashto service.

This will be Haroon‘s first concert for the general public in New York, and he will be accompanied by master musicians Mohammad Essa on the tabla and Pervez Sakhi playing the rabab.

You can get more info from the facebook event page. Tickets are available on Ticketfly or via the littlefield website.

For more on Haroon, check out his interview with Austin:
¬ On the Taliban’s Hit List: An Exiled Pakistani Singer’s Plea to Save Music

And here’s a write up on Haroon from the New York Times last year:
¬ U.S. Refuge for Singer Fleeing the Taliban

** UPDATE **

Here’s an interview SLF‘s Ezra Gale did with Austin Dacey recently, discussing music censorship, Haroon Bacha, and the upcoming The Impossible Music Sessions.
¬ Music as a Human Right, and a Weapon: an interview with Austin Dacey

Been on a Chico Mann kick lately.

Here’s a little promo project from Wax Poetics and Rockstar Games featuring Chico using the Beaterator game on a PSP to create a beat. The video features some live footage of Chico Mann‘s performance at this past Saturday’s Booty Crisis party in Brooklyn, where the band put on a great show.
