CMJ LIVE! at HOTEL CHANTELLEhosted by LILY VANILLI + ROTTING TV

It’s CMJ time in NYC once again, and our good friend LILY VANILLI has teamed up with Rotting TV to put together a killer FREE showcase of bands, producers and DJs this Thursday night at Hotel Chantelle.

The band/artist showcase kicks off downstairs in the main bar at 7pm, with Cleveland-bred, Brooklyn-based indie/alt/hip-hop production duo The Kickdrums, Houston garage-pop outfit Young Girls, Norwegian electronic lo-fi duo AACT RRAISER, New York wonderboy producer Sweater Beats, songwriter/rapper/vocalist Justina, and electro/pop/soul vocalist ANE.

The afterparty takes over the rooftop at 10pm with New York-based MCs MaG and Danse Daimons rocking alongside Austin shining-star (and buhbOmp homie) DJ Mike Swing and Chilean-born, Miami-based DJ Manuvers.

A gang of folks are co-sponsoring this bad boy, including MANIMAL, our good friends at Hash Magazine, The Interstellar Pig and our beloved Impulse Travels radio show. So much different kinds of good involved in this, it would be ridiculous to miss it.

Here’s the info:

JayCeeOh, tour DJ for Wiz Khalifa and winner of the 2011 McDonald’s National Flavor Battle, makes his way back to NY to rock it with the MWB crew. He recently took his talents to the West Coast, so we’ll call this a bit of a homecoming for our friend. He’ll be coming to us live right after a successful tour across the EU and after shows in Austin for SXSW. We’re psyched to have him because he’s without a doubt one of the most in-demand DJs in the country. Dude’s been killin’ it!

Check out some video clips of JayCeeOh in action:

The MWB Crew, Kunal Merchant & Seif Al-Din, will set things off before JayCeeOh hits the decks.

Known as the best selling vodka in Russia – which actually says quite a bit – Russian Standard will be on board, hooking you up with free drinks from 10-11pm and we’ll have them as our featured bottle special of the night. Message any of the admins on the facebook invite for a great deal if you want to rock a table or booth the night of, or if its your b-day, or if you want to reserve space for your crew.

The drinks start pouring at 10, so come prepared. Kush is the destination, and as usual, you can order food early and hookahs all night. Ask for the MWB special and they’ll take care of you.

Your RSVP Matters: so make sure you do, or you may get charged at the door.

/// WKCR’s Eastern Standard Time and the Sound Liberation Front team up to present CONEY ISLAND REGGAE SOUND SYSTEM BEACH PARTY II on the Coney Island Boardwalk. The all-day event (from noon to sundown) is free and will feature live DJs and special guest artists combining to bring the enormously influential culture of Jamaican sound systems to the Brooklyn beach.

Among the featured DJs for the event are DJ CARTER VAN PELT, host of Eastern Standard Time; HAHN SOLO, lead guitarist and dub engineer for Dub Is A Weapon; and VAUGHN ALL STAR, a selector for King Crown International sound system.

Sound systems took over from orchestras in Jamaican dancehalls in the 1950s and became part of nearly every development in Jamaican music: Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae, Dancehall and so on. Because sound system dances were one of the few things poor people on the island could call their own, the parties became central to downtown life and the local economy. Competition for the best equipment and the most exciting music was fierce and became the driving force behind the evolution of the island’s music industry as sound system owners turned to record producing.

For fifty years, the natural medium for Jamaican modern music has been the sound system dances. The music was produced and designed specifically for sound systems to play, and for the enjoyment of the people attending the dances. Wherever Jamaicans have traveled, from London to New York and beyond, sound systems have been part of their luggage. The legacy of sound system culture can be found in many forms of popular music around the world.

Come join us and enjoy the sound system culture, the boardwalk, the beach, the pier, and the perfect soundtrack to the season. ///

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.

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.
