Although I’m primarily in the studio working on the new Lushlife EP (more on that soon), I’ve got some awesome spot dates and festivals coming up. While I’m in the midwest shooting a music video next week, you can catch a live Lushlife set in Oklahoma City, and I’ll also be doing a free outdoor college show in Madison, WI. In early October, I’ll be at Atlanta’s A3C Festival, playing alongside dudes like 9th Wonder, GZA, Killer Mike, and more.

Every album hustle is a painstaking grind, and Plateau Vision has been no different. So, it’s infinitely gratifying to finally have an LP in hand. And, with the album coming out in less-than-a-month, you can pre-order your copy of Plateau Vision now, via the Western Vinyl shop.

We just touched down in Austin for this year’s SXSW Festival. I played an unofficial SXSWi event on Saturday at Cheer Up, Charlie’s on the east side of town. The vibe was great, and I was totally hyped to share the stage with my labelmate and frequent collaborator, Botany. In any case, here are the details for upcoming Lushlife appearances, including the official showcase:
3/14 @ Victory Grill (KVRX Showcase) 7:00 PM
3/15 @ Barcelona (DJ Set, Friends of Friends Day Party) 2:30 PM
3/16 @ Lambert’s (Western Vinyl Showcase) 1:10 AM
3/17 @ Hotel Vegas (Brooklyn Vegan Showcase)12:00 PM
Dublab, an LA online radio community, is also behind the city’s popular cassette-only DJ night, Top Tapes. To celebrate this cool event dedicated to the nostalgia inside tape saturation, dudes have put together a Top Tape Bundle, that includes the super-limited cassette of my 2011 mixtape, No More Golden Days. Also, internationalist selectors take note: looks like they’re offering a few cumbia mutante comps that are well-worth checking out.

I’ve noticed that a lot of heads are excited to hear critically-acclaimed Canadian em-cee, Shad contribute to the upcoming Lushlife LP. And yeah, I dig it. Just listen to this song and you’ll understand what the hype is about. Unfortunately, you may not hear the Shad joint from Plateau Vision until the album is out on April 17th, but in a recent video series for Exclaim Magazine, the homie dropped an “acapulco” version of his verse from the album, live in Toronto’s Trinity Bellwoods Park. It’s so incredible.
