In what is being tagged as a The RBMA Culture Clash, Toronto will be the host to a quasi 4 team battle royal. Huh?? Lemme explain it. ;)
For those accustomed to reggae bashments, where sounds battle for supremacy, you know what this is. For all others, look for 4 DJ/sound crews to battle for your vote - a DJ idol of sorts.
My favorite part? We're going to be treated to a Lucky Me stage which will feature: Hudson Mohawke, Lunice and Rustie. Say wrd.
All arriving to Toronto with new releases: Hudmo coming off the Satin Panthers EP, Lunice w/ his fantastic One Hunned EP and Rustie coming weeks before his Glass Swords LP from Warp. HEAVY.
The other 3 stages will feature the likes of Afrika Bambaataa & The Zulu Nation, Mad Decent (South Rakkas Crew, Dillon Francis, Paul Devro, DJ Sega), and the Toronto All Stars (Boi-1da, Lissa Monet, Starting From Scratch), Kardinal Offishall.
Here are the deets:

Where am I putting my $?? Well, "the only gambling I do is going bareback™" (quote circa 2007 - RBMA). But, i'm happy to see Lucky Me get some stripes here. Like I said yesterday, there's a turning tide and ppl are starting to listen.
This will be one to check out. ;)
See you then.
