Etienne Update

Yes Yes. I lost track of what Etienne was doing for a couple weeks, but I've caught the thread again, and now, I've got some more of that good shit to pass on.

Just in case the fuchsia flyer somehow didn't burn itself into you collective retinas, there's a HH night going on at the MarketPlace next Friday, featuring some of the usual faces (The Duke, Cal Jader, Judge, my boy Lonerider on a rare vynil excursion) and also "Afropean sultry songstress Amacka".

I know Marketplace is one of those random-as-hell venues, but the Heads High collective nights down there have had a nice vibe, plus, its free, so no excuses.

Turns out, during my concentration lapse, Etienne has put up two more podcasts, so I'm reposting them both here.

Nextmen - Join the Dots

Word on the street (and Facebook) is my boys Brad and Dom, aka the Nextemen, have a new album out entitled Join the Dots which you can buy here.

If you're going through withdrawal from their semi-regular legendary mixtape releases, they've snuck out a new one as part of the promotion for the new LP, which is available to download for a limited time right here.

Your welcome.
