Get the Fuck outa here. Lil Louis is BACK?!?!?!

Dude, this whole leaving town for the tropics thing is getting out of control. Just as I got a gig for 2 weeks in the Carribean, Lil' Louis has to all come out of retirement and shit. Apparently he's doing a small tour to promote a new book, "A Man's Diary", and CD, entitled "Two Sides to Every Story" which is written by Louis from the perspective "depicting the joy, love, and heartache" of dating Lil' Louis. Sounds awesome. Since I never got to see him the first time around, I'm pretty excited for the opportunity.

I will be missing the show next Saturday at my new favorite NY Club, Santos Party House, but luckily there's a 2nd NY appearance scheduled on Tuesday, regrettably at S.O.B.s, one of my least favorite spots. No matter, got my tickets for tuesday, but if I were you, i'd be sure not to miss the gig next weekend, when he'll be playing with Louis Vega. Once again, its a reminder of why, despite the weather, its pretty damn good to be in NY.

Vegas Tracks 4

This one was sent over from my friend in Ireland, Iarla O'Sullivan, who's been a big benefactor of SGB. He's started a Disco/House label/collective called "Galaxy Comète Records" that is doing its part to bring back the french touch, giving away all their releases for free. So far they're off to a great start, and I hope to hear more from em.

Iarla's been feeding me great tracks for the past two years, even during the times when I've been a bad blogger and probably didn't deserve 'em. So head over to GCR's page and have a listen, I think you'll like what you hear, and if you do, send him some support.

Also take note that Krapulax is active on Myspace, and in the studio, and is looking for a label, so if you're down with what you hear, on both this 12" and his page, pass his name around and get his ass a contract--we can all use a little love with the economy all gone to shit.

Herbert @ Studio B

I guess Studio B didn't close after all?

And good thing, too because they're hosting one of the best, Matthew Herbert, for a DJ set this weekend, and if its anything like his last NY appearance, at Canal Room in 2006, we're in for a real good time.

I hope to see you all there, its good to be home again.


P.S. Got all your emails while I was gone, and I'll write back as soon as i can get caught up. -SGB
