Episode #17- Shaolin Soul: Foundations of WU [Black History Month Tribute to Music]
February 23, 2011 07:08 PM PST
In Celebration of Black History Month, a group of us from BK/Vancouver got together to throw an event:
At Fortune Sound Club (Vancouver, BC)
The Party concept and Mixtape/Podcast were inspired by the Wu-Tang Clan's "Shaolin Soul" albums, which pay tribute to the Original Songs sampled/that influenced their music.
In a Radio Interview w/ Evolution Radio 107.9, I mentioned that,
'Sampling is like our generation's "Oral Tradition". In Africa, stories are passed along in this manner, and I've realized this is how stories are passed along now, through Music."
In an Effort to pass along the "Music Tradition" a % of our Proceeds are being donated to Templeton Secondary School's Jazz Music Program. Hopefully the proceeds and donated instruments will enrich a child's life and allow them the gift of music, that all should have.
I hope you Enjoy this mix, it was quite the "Labor of Love"...and marks Black History Month 2011!
Light & Love,

"Wild: Living in a state of nature; not tamed or domesticated
Rover: A person who roves; wanderer
Wild Rover: A movement that offers an edgy, yet sophisticated disruption of the norm through fresh design and modern apparel."
I've known Brendan Burke, The Owner of Wild Rover Clothing Inc. the for almost 4 years, and I am Proud of him!!
Inspired by his Irish roots, Brendan created this brand for the New Generation. The Shamrock is often associated with Olde World Lore & Breakfast Cereal. So, he decided to reclaim the Pride that he and so many others wear proudly in their Hearts....and now on their Backs....
A Challenge...yes, it was A CHALLENGE...
Only Brendan would ask me to mix The Pogues, Sam Cooke, The Ramones, and Jay-Z.....amongst some other WINNERS!!
