Friday Drive
Friday March 10th, 2023 with Trevor Walker + Rise Ashen

Happy Friday Drivers! Welcome to this week’s show. I have Rise Ashen joining me to share some of his musical breadth for this week’s show with a focus on some deep Afro and Latin House, Amapiano and some Afrobeats along with all kinds of goodies to make your rush hour speed by. Rise Ashen has been involved in house and hip dance culture intermittently since the mid 1980’s and his love for the music drove him to start making his own music with an amazing evolution to his sound throughout the years. Over the years Rise has had projects with Blissom, Silla, Ammoye, Citizen Sound, Ethnic Heritage, Fred Everything and even yours truly to name a few with all kinds of remixes and singles under his belt.

Rise and Trevor will bring a unique vibe and sound not easily found in the national capital’s venues with an underground vibe that could only come from these two long time curator, selector, collectors and producers.
Hope you can join us and share your vibes with our grooves!
Rise Ashen bio:
Rise Ashen has devoted his life to the study of sound and movement. From his early years as a B-Boy in Montreal in the 80s to his studies at Fanshawe College (North America's Oldest Recording School) and the Banff Centre for the Arts, his focus has been on applying hi-fi knowhow to underground music. His record collection spans the 4 corners of the world with club music of all tempos as his primary focus. As a DJ, he blends it all in a worldy mash and is always the sweaty and dynamic life of the party. He has played in clubs and festivals across the US, Canada, Europe and Asia and has licensed music for use in dozens of countries. His study of Yoga has led him to combine his musical journey with his Yogi journey and he has been DJing extensively for yoga classes, festivals and events since 2012.
He has remixed and collaborated countless artists including Mali’s Issa Bagayogo, Montreal (Juno award winner) Miguel Graca, Jojo Flores, Fred Everything and Kat 5 of the KALMUNITY collective, Toronto based (2-time Juno nominated) Ammoye, (Juno Award winner) Dubmatix, Version XCursion, LAL, (Juno Award Winner) Eccodek, (Juno Award Winner) Kobotown, King Sunshine, the New Deal and Bageshree, UK’s Sean Escofferey, John Beltran, Steph Lefrancois and Josef Malik, New York’s Angel Moraes and Nickodemus, Winnipeg’s Paris to Kiev, Kasm and Seed Organisation, and Trevor “Lifeboogie” Walker, John Akpata, and Shegun Beautiful Nubia Akinlolu, Brandon Wint, Bhavan2 , Tara Proter, Lucila Al Mar Ottawa Algonquin Singer Flying Down Thunder with whom he received a Juno nomination in 2012 for their debut album: One Nation, as well as a Native American Music Awards nomination in 2014 for their sophomore album: North Wind.
His music gets played played by the likes of Larry Heard, Masters at Work, Roger Sanchez, Paul Murphy, Gilles Peterson, Laurent Garnier, Maurice Fulton, Bonobo, Mr. V, Rainer Truby, and Quentin Harris among others. He has shared the stage with such varied greats as K’Naan, The Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, Kid Koala and Jully Black among others.
Recently he has been collaborating with Silla, the Inuit throat-singing duet made up of Cynthia Pitsiulak and Charlotte Qamaniq, with whom he just released a full-length debut which was long-listed for the Polaris Prize and nominated for a Juno Award for Best Indigenous Recording. They perform as a trio with rise playing electronic percussion.
He is currently working on a full length album with Kahil El Zabaar and the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble of Chicago.
He believes music and dance are essential to human culture and that united, artists can lead humanity towards a more enlightened way of living. He aspires to embody the wise words of Fela Kuti: "when the higher forces give you the gift of musicianship …it must be well used for the good of humanity"
Trevor Walker bio:
For 30 years, Trevor Walker has been one of Canada’s best kept secrets. But talk to anyone who’s danced to his sets, booked him or shared the decks with him and the word legend is often use to praise his work. Collecting and playing music since 1988, he spent 21 years as a resident at Ottawa’s Mercury Lounge, one of the longest lasting and most respected venues in the country, playing alongside DJs such as : Derrick Carter, Louie Vega, Joe Claussell, Gilles Peterson, Fred Everything, Quantic, King Britt, Dj Spinna, Osunlade, Roger Sanchez, Josh Wink, and the list goes on. He also shared the bill with bands such as : Jamiroquai, The Roots, Gil Scott-Heron, Maceo Parker, Alice Russell, Souljazz Orchestra, The Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, Bembe Segue, Galliano, and many more.
A walking musical encyclopedia, he’s responsible for shaping the eclectic sound that has defined Ottawa’s club scene for over two and a half decades, partly due to his various radio shows over the years on CKCU FM 93.1 such as : New Soul Collectve Saturdays [1990-2001], Flava Zone Sundays [1991-1996], Undergrove Thursdays [1992-1999] and his current Friday Drive [2005-present]. His radio shows and club nights have showcased a wide spectrum of genres, covering Soul, Funk, Afro, Jazz, Latin, Carribean, Hip Hop, Trip Hop, Acid Jazz as well as his trademark House and Techno sets. He’s particularly known for his use of 4 decks, layering hypnotic beats and adding acapellas over his inspired and informed selection.

The Human Rights
When it comes to reggae in Canada, few bands do it better—while remaining true to its founding principles—than Toronto’s The Human Rights. Since forming in 2007 around one of the scene’s true lions, Friendlyness (previously of Culture Shock, Truth And Rights and Big Sugar), The Human Rights have developed a modern, high energy sound that blends Roots Reggae with jazz, funk and R&B influences, courtesy of a blazing three-piece horn section and the soulful lead vocals of Juno award nominee Tréson. On their new album Reggae Strong, The Human Rights more than live up to its title following an extended break since releasing their 2016 self-titled album and the 2018 single “I Need You.” Recorded with producer and former band member Patric McGroarty, and mixed and mastered by renowned Canadian reggae artist Dubmatix, Reggae Strong finds The Human Rights coming as close as they have yet to achieving a truly Canadian reggae sound, with guest appearances by Toronto’s Ras Yunchie, Caddy Cad, I-Sax, and Carol Brown.
Ras Lee & The Vibes Band
Ras Lee is a true reggae warrior, born and raised in Montego Bay, Jamaica and currently residing in Ottawa. He is a Canadian Juno award nominee and is well known for his album and single “Who Killed the Lion” which is a tribute to Bob Marley. In 2012 he was crowned Ottawa Reggae Ambassador in recognition of his work over the years in the Ottawa community as a reggae artist. In 2018, Ras Lee released the song “Don’t Give Up”, a track produced by CanJam music. Ras Lee continues to perform in various venues and music festivals throughout Ontario and Quebec as a lead vocalist and with his band The Vibes Band. Ras Lee is actively working on his next album.

Tickets · $20via Eventbrite

Dreammind & Kapacity Entertainment is ecstatic to host Skratch Bastid back in the nations capital for his first time since 2017!
Dreammind Group & Kapacity Entertainment present
at BERLIN inside 56 ByWard
on Friday April 7th, 2023 @ 10pm
For the past two decades, Skratch Bastid has been rocking parties and wowing crowds all over the globe, becoming one of the world`s best-known and most-loved DJs. Known for his electric stage presence, technical prowess and versatile selections that span the complete musical spectrum—from hip hop to house, disco to dancehall, reggae to funk and back again—Bastid is a true crowd favourite with an unrivaled ability to create unforgettable moments with music. From humble beginnings in Bedford, Nova Scotia, Bastid cut his teeth in the battle scene of the late 90s and early 2000s, competing in the DMcs, ITF and Scribble Jam. The latter produced one of his most iconic moments, the "Imperial March" routine that became his first brush with viral fame, and has over 7 million views on YouTube alone (and countless others from before social media even officially existed). And while he`s clearly always had a knack for creating shareable videos, Bastid proved early on that he offered much more than just impressive tricks. His demanding touring schedule has brought him all over the world, sometimes playing up to 200 shows a year in over 50 countries. When he`s not keeping dance floors moving behind the decks, he`s also an accomplished producer with multiple Juno nominations, known for his collaborations with artists like Shad and DJ Jazzy Jeff. In addition to his genius as a DJ, Bastid has been expanding his empire into many other successful creative ventures, including his Skratch School DJ School, his eponymous line of hot sauces and of course, the infamous Bastid`s BBQ. This beloved traveling party has drawn sold-out crowds in a handful of global cities, and has played host to a who`s who of hip hop and DJ culture, with appearances by DJ Premier, Maseo, Brother Ali, A-Trak, Pete Rock, Lord Finesse and many, many more. With touring temporarily on hold, Bastid recently added Twitch streaming to his repertoire. Thanks to his high-energy sets, charismatic personality and unbound musical knowledge, he has quickly become one of the most watched and followed DJs on the platform. Even after two decades in the game, Skratch Bastid is showing no signs of slowing, and only continues to evolve and further cement his legend status.

The Soul Motivators:
The Soul Motivators are here to restore your faith in funk. A fresh take on a classic sound, they blend 1970’s funk and soul, psychedelic jams and hip-hop breaks. They’ve shared stages with greats like Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, Lee Fields, Bernie Worrell and electrified crowds at major events such as the TD Toronto Jazz Festival, The PanAm Games, Sunfest, and Festival d'Ete. Their debut album, Free to Believe, was released on Do Right! Music in 2015, to national and international acclaim. 2017 saw the release of the Dirt on The Floor EP through Detroit’s Funk Night Records. A string of sold-out tour dates brought their high-octane live show to the masses. Their 2020 album Do The Damn Thing was the first recording to feature the power-house vocal stylings of Shahi Teruko – whose relentless fire and electrifying performances have been shaking up audiences since she joined the band in 2015. Having celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2022, the band returns with a brand new album Do It Together (coming out March 24 on Do Right! Music) and cross-Canada tour dates.
