WONDERCORE ISLAND are a management crew made up of Si Jay Gould and Laura Christoforidis both associated with HIATUS KAIYOTE but also with the incredible groundswell that is associated with them. A movement is a comin people and you want to know about it. These guys have made a mix tape to help showcase some of the crazy talent that we have bubbling away. Lots of these bands have been rocking Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday nights and packing them out. That is the BEST kind of partying! So if future soul and electronica (and freak grooves - Kirkis!) get you smiling, then click this……

get ready for I GET LONELY, brand new single from Soul Monsters SASKWATCH see the official film clip here.
The actual 7″ is about 4 weeks away, so HOLD TIGHT!
‘I Get Lonely’ is faster and harder than Saskwatch has ever been before. Its clangy guitars and fast-paced drums evoke 60s surf-rock vibes, while the horn section bring the melody, all held together by Nkechi Anele’s gutsy vocals. It’s ambitious and it hits the mark.
The work for Mikey didn’t stop - he and Max Kohane, collectively known as Brain Children liberally applied their talents to Saskwatch’s single, ‘Your Love’ and the result - an ambient remix full of echoing guitars and almost prog-rock drums.

yes, its true, its really TRUE!! Born in a Brooklyn warehouse in 1997, 12-piece ensemble Antibalas is credited with introducing Afrobeat to a wider global audience, influencing countless musicians and developing a live show that is the stuff of legend.
The group has performed everywhere from Central Park to Carnegie Hall to Rikers Island Prison, and that’s just in New York. On the heels of the hit musical FELA!, which several members collaborated on, Antibalas has reunited with former member and producer Gabe Roth, who was at the helm for their first three albums. The world famous Daptone Records released the band’s first album in five years, self-titled, in late 2012.
Inspired by economic meltdowns and global uprisings, Antibalas piled into two rooms at Daptone’s House of Soul Studios in Bushwick, Brooklyn to cut an explosive new set of afrobeat classics. “Dirty Money” launches the propulsive six-song LP with deep, pulsating rhythms, monstrous horns and tight funk. Lead singer Amayo - a native of Lagos, Nigeria and senior Kung Fu master - guides the band through cathartic workouts of call and response, dynamic instrumentals and eruptive solos.
Members of Antibalas served as musical directors and the house band in the Broadway hit FELA! and penned original music for the show. Members have also recently collaborated/performed with Iron and Wine, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Mark Ronson, TV on the Radio and The Roots.
