Raw Data

(pictured: Dub Syndicate–drummer Style Scott's sole project)

Busy weekend in SF with a lot of bases to cover: back to back radio shows on Friday (electronic) (10pm-12am) and Saturday (reggae) (11pm-2am) on KUSF 90.3FM (listen live via iTunes Radio, under "Public" channels).

Also Saturday–an event for youth–Grind & Glory–I've been helping promote and nurture.(PS: that's all 14-18 year olds on the verses and production of the theme song!)

Hope your weekend is fun and safe. For now, I leave you with release dates for some select forthcoming albums.
