Acción de Gracias

The KCRW love continues, giving us lots to be thankful for...

On Thanksgiving day, for 24 hours only, they will feature Mentirosos from Analog Drift as free download. Log on to Today's Top Tune and grab it!

Then on Monday December 6th LA will get a double-shot of Chico. First we'll join our friend Jason Bentley on what is possibly the best radio show out there - Morning Becomes Eclectic where we'll sit down for little Q&A and get things cooking in the studio with a live performance.

And later that evening we'll make it funky at the Roxy as
KCRW presents Chico Mann along with special guests Rainbow Arabia, NGUZUNGUZU and DJ Oro11. Get your tickets at the Roxy box office or online at Ticketmaster.

Wishing you and yours a great holiday.

ALL THAT IS RISING



Big news from Chico camp-

HOME BASS



The Analog Drift tour is complete! Well, for now anyways...

We're back home, resting after a great 3 weeks on the road and getting things together to bring the beat back to you very soon. In the meantime, we'll have some Afro-freestyle coming your way in the next few months, so stay tuned.

While we were setting the dancefloors of North America ablaze, Analog Drift has been making making some waves of its own, climbing both the CMJ and KCRW charts. If you haven’t grabbed your own yet check out the Wax Poetics store or if the digital game is more your style you can also download it from Wax Poetics here or via iTunes.

I spoke with the Montreal Mirror, DJ Don Jose at BreakThru Radio, and Houston’s 29-95.com. Click on the links to check out the interviews!

And last, but certainly not least we’d like to thank everyone who made the Analog Drift tour possible - you know who you are, Fam.

Much Love,

CANADIAN BREAKIN'

After an amazing couple of weeks in the states we are bringing the body rock to our neighbors up north for 3 more shows to round out the Analog Drift Tour... for now.

Then on Saturday October 6th we'll be back in Montreal to headline Cafe Campus with the red-hot Daft Punk Tribute Band.

Keep en eye out for some more shows in NYC soon and don't forget to pick up your copy of Analog Drift available at Wax Poetics, iTunes and your local record store.
