It is official. According to Discorder Magazine, I am a "celebrity". Check out September's issue for an article about some local peeps favourite places to go in Vancouver, including yours truly. Click here for the web version.
Although the summer isn't technically over until late September, today certainly feels like the first day of Fall here in Vancouver; it is evident in the weather and the demeanour of the people here. Which is not to imply that people here seem bummed-out; there's just a certain coziness to those I pass on the street today.
As the rain returns, so does my drive to make things, it seems: I'm currently working on painting a bike helmet for the The Prohab Helmet Show & Fundraiser at the Modus Gallery (206 Carrall St.) on September 17th. Vancouverites (and those travelling through on this date), there is more info on this show here.
Caving mix. It's going well, I think. The new stuff I'm doing seems to be migrating away from the dubstep element and heading towards a more conventional rap production. I think that U.S. Caves, my first official mix, will end up sounding more like a rap remix project than an electro/dubstep album. I have decided that my dream job would be a rap producer and I'm making choices to head that way. If anyone would be kind enough to put in a good word for me with T.I. or Gucci Mane, I would really appreciate it. Tell them that I can guarantee a club banger.
Another thing I'm working on right now is a 10 year anniversary sale for Ache Records in October. I want to create a two week event around the idea. Shows/Parties/In-Stores and records for dirt cheap. There will be more on that in a later post, though.
Whip on 6th & Main. So if you didn't get a chance to see it at the Gallery a few months back, now is your chance to check out some of it.
