Friday Drive
Friday May 17th, 2024 with Trevor Walker

Happy Friday Drivers and welcome to this week’s show! Keeping things simple for myself this week and also getting my warm up on for tonight's DiscoLab. Digging deep into my disco boogie crates. Hoping you’re not all getting boogied out by the show’s recent focus on funky disco vibes. Apologies in advance for all of you who aren’t in tune with the genre and a promise that next week’s show will be somewhat of a turn back to the drive’s historically diverse soundtrack. Regardless I’ve got some smashing selections to share with you and I recommend a little stretch to get you limbered up for the show. Thank you for tuning in and hope you all enjoy the selections!

BIO - Flavio Kirilli, aka FK ANYWAY:
From an early age, Flavio was a lover of music and all it encompassed. All the nuances of sounds and the intricacies of a musical composition is where he found his happy place and it has helped form his unique, creative ear. His first step towards being a dj, was at age 16 when he bought his first console and played in a few clubs, where he grew up in the South of Italy. This gave him a real taste of what was soon to become an insatiable passion. In 2002, he moved to Riccione where the best clubs and nightlife were located, setting up shop to make his mark. Working in a top record store by day; producing and playing by night, his knowledge and taste in music were expanding and all the hard work was paying off.

For over 30 years Flavio has been rocking dance floors in clubs all over the world. Bookings in Italy include: Matis, Pascià, Echoes, Divinae Follie, Kamaloca, Nafoura, Peter, Villa delle Rose, PickUp, Miu J’Adore, Chalet delle Rose, Des Alpes, Meet Compact Club, Vanilla, and at international hot spots 43 Scott (Brooklyn-NY), The Door (NYC), NiteFlight (Liebnitz, Austria), Fiesta Club (Brussels), Penthouse (Copenhagen) among others. Flavio hosts his own radio show SUBTERRANEA every week with guest djs. He has been a guest on other radio shows such as: Rhythm is Rhythm, Ibiza Global Radio, NYC House Radio and many others.

As a person, Flavio is solid! He is professional and takes his music very seriously. Watching the dancefloor go wild is a rewarding feeling and one that he always strives for. He becomes the maestro, taking the crowd on a musical journey when he plays. With an infectious smile and great attitude on life, it’s all about the vibe.

DJ Day
DJ Day (Damien Beebe) is a DJ, producer and musician from Palm Springs, California. His contributions to the various avant-garde music scenes in Southern California run deep and span over two decades. From the historic Root Down parties of Los Angeles to the infamous Do-Over, Day has garnered respect from peers and fans alike for his eclectic, well-executed DJ sets and diverse taste in music. His debut album, The Day Before, rose to the top of numerous notable charts including those of Gilles Peterson (BBC), Jeremy Sole (KCRW) and Philly's Cosmo Baker. His talent in transitioning between DJ/turntablist, musician and beat maker is best exemplified by his ambitious studio release, Land Of 1000 Chances. He has toured over 20 countries worldwide as a solo artist and performed with artists such as Aloe Blacc, Eminem, Amy Winehouse, People Under the Stairs, Grandmaster Flash, Moodymann, and more. Day was nominated for Song of the Year awards both by the BBC and The Village Voice and his music has been licensed for commercials by DC Shoes, Red Bull Music Academy, Rane/Serato, and numerous full length feature films. He has also been a participant in DJ Jazzy Jeff’s Playlist Retreat since it’s conception.
With hard-hitting congas, syncopated bells and blocks, roaring baritone saxophone and tight two-part vocal harmonies, Dystoh brings together the spirit of blues and soul, the rhythmic fire of
latin salsa, the unbridled creativity of reggae and dub, and the deep groove of modern-day afro sounds. Created by two original core members of the three-time Juno-nominated Souljazz Orchestra, Ray Tabana and Phil Motion enter the musical foray with their new duo, sharing original up-tempo creations and deep lyrical reflections in their debut album 'Heat
of the Times', an album that explores the delicate and fragile interplay of our personal and global struggles in a new dangerous age. Dystoh brings 20 years of international touring experience and infuses it into this new duo for an exciting and dynamic live show where the pounding of sub-bass frequencies and electronic drum machines meet a fiery mix of afro latin percussion, freight-train baritone saxophone lines, and the raw emotion of the humanvoice.
Ultrafox is a funk/jazz band based out of Montreal. We've got one goal: to bring dancing back to live music!

Trevor “lifeboogie” Walker
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.

He has 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. As a producer, he’s released on labels such as : Nordic Trax, Afro Art, Bombay, Fossil Fuel, GotSoul, and collaborated with artists such as Juno-nominated Rise Ashen and Miguel Graca, Shawn Escoffery, Luke Mckeehan, Fred Everything, Souljazz Orchestra and The Soul Motivators.

Drone Day
@Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre
355 Cooper St.

We invite artists and sound-makers of all kinds to join us in celebrating this international day of drone!
Drone Day is an annual global celebration of drone, community and experimental sounds. This year, Debaser and Carleton University Art Gallery are co-presenting a special edition of Ottawa Drone Day at Carleton Dominion-Chalmers Centre (CDCC), a heritage building in Centretown, not far from Parliament Hill. It reflects on the question, “what is our relationship to this land?”
Taking place in CDCC’s vaulted performance hall, Drone Day is a participatory program that invites experienced and beginner sound-makers to add their voices to a heterogenous yet unified hum. It requests listening as much as inviting sounding.
We’ll take our cues from Pauline Oliveros’ ideas of deep listening as activism and Dylan Robinson’s concept of hungry listening. This decentralized program of organized sound elevates group consciousness while honouring individual contributions on their own terms. Conceived together, drone is a healing and socializing agent.

The German Sparkle Party theme is inspired by a worldwide sensation music video of the same name by "The Something Experience". This is our chance every year to be silly and outrageous, let loose and have fun.


A German Sparkle Party (GSP) is a fun and frolicsome celebration of all things shiny, blinky, glowy and dazzly, set to a soundtrack of the best underground house and techno the city has to offer. Trust us... it's the PERFECT bright and light-hearted way to celebrate the arrival of spring after the dark winter months that seem to drag on forever in the national capital region.

SPARKLE PARTY COSTUMES, fun and bright outfits are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED! This year's theme is "Glitz & Glam"...

glitz (ɡlɪts)
ostentatious showiness; gaudiness or glitter
glam (glæm)
Flamboyant, extravagantly flashy glamour; Relating to glam rock.
GLITZ: All the glittering and sparkling extravagance of Hollywood fashion, filled with metallics, sequins... the more ostentatious the better! Just let your imagination run wild!
GLAM: David Bowie was a pioneer of this fashion trend; glam rock men and women embraced metallics, ruffles, satin blouses, bold colours, tight pants, platform shoes, unique makeup and dyed hair.
Watch the German Sparkle Party video linked above to get some great ideas for your outfit - you'll be inspired along with us to rock sparkly accessories and makeup, rubber boots and of course your party pants!

Do you feel you need some more sparkle in your step, more flash in your Friday night? As always, we'll set up our ever-popular SPARKLE STATION, allowing the woefully unprepared to get into the theme with some complimentary sparkle accessories.

Laurier Ave. W

Ottawa Jazz Festival presents: Lake Street Dive
Thursday, June 27 | Main Stage, Confederation Park | 8:30pm

Purchase online:
Since forming in 2004, Lake Street Dive have matched their sophisticated musicianship with a fearless refusal to limit their sound. As shown on their most recent full-length album, 2021‘s critically acclaimed Obviously, the Boston-bred band also possess a keen talent for combining sociopolitical commentary with immediately catchy pop gems. With their current lineup comprised of founding members Rachael Price (vocals), Bridget Kearney (bass), and Michael Calabrese (drums) — as well as keyboardist/vocalist Akie Bermiss and touring guitarist James Cornelison — Lake Street Dive continue to create joyously soulful rock & roll with equal parts ingenuity, intelligence, and irresistible abandon.
Although a certain spirited eclecticism has defined Lake Street Dive since their earliest days, the band‘s four original members (including former guitarist/trumpet player Michael “McDuck” Olson) first crossed paths while studying jazz at Boston‘s New England Conservatory of Music. Their full-length debut In This Episode… arrived in 2007, followed by three more independently released and rapturously received albums. As the band‘s energetic live show continued to earn them a devoted following, Lake Street Dive made their Nonesuch Records debut with Side Pony: a 2016 effort that instantly shot to No. 1 on three Billboard charts and later landed on Paste‘s 50 Best Albums of 2016 list.
The following year, the group experienced a new infusion of creative energy with the addition of Bermiss (previously their touring keyboardist), who has since begun sharing writing and arrangement duties. Arriving in 2018, Lake Street Dive‘s self-produced sixth album Free Yourself Up debuted in the top ten on the Billboard 200 and spent seven-and-a-half months on the non-commercial radio charts, with the smoldering hit single “Good Kisser” holding steady in the top five at Americana radio for over a month.
In recent years, Lake Street Dive have brought even more boldness to their kaleidoscopic sound while deliberately expanding their songcraft. To that end, Obviously finds the band examining such complex matters as gender inequality (on “Being a Woman”) and the monumental challenges faced by younger generations (on “Making Do”), shaping each track with a profound intentionality and ineffable mastery of melody and groove — a process Price refers to as “putting these messages into three and a half minute snippets, dropping whatever truth we can and hoping it‘s the type of thing that people want to ruminate on.” Made with producer Mike Elizondo (Fiona Apple, Mary J. Blige), the result is an endlessly illuminating body of work that‘s earned praise from the likes of Rolling Stone (who noted that “[a]t a moment when pop strives for lo-fi, solitary-world intimacy, the jazz-pop-whatever band refuse to think small”).
Last fall, to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their first covers EP, Lake Street Dive released Fun Machine: The Sequel, a 6-track EP of cover songs produced by Robin MacMillan and recorded at Figure 8 Recording in Brooklyn and Lucy‘s Meat Market in Los Angeles. This new collection of songs reveals what makes the group so unique and their curations so special. Lake Street Dive don‘t just inhabit these interpretations; they knock the walls down, re-finish the floors, and on some of them add a new room or two — it‘s a way to both acknowledge their inspirations while also advancing their own musical foundation, inspiring a new generation of fans along the way. And as always, it‘s their signature combination of immaculate musicianship, exceptional, inventive chops, and free-wheeling, playful sense of fun and originality leading the way.
Over the years, they‘ve captivated massive audiences at such esteemed festivals as Newport Folk Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and Toronto Jazz Festival, in addition to headlining tours all across the globe and sharing stages with acts like Brandi Carlile and Sheryl Crow. And through their fierce commitment to constantly elevating their artistry, Lake Street Dive have ultimately emerged as one of the most compelling voices in alternative music today, both reliably sublime and thrilling unpredictable.

Hi. I checked because i love the tune "Some Kind of Wonderful" by John Ellison and the Soul Brothers Six. Ellison was born in Virginia, according to Discogs. The band was formed in Rochester N.Y. I wonder who recorded "Dazz" first, them or Brick ? Thanks for the music.

The song Dazz holds 50% canadian content. According to Discogs. Man, that song Rock Creek Park, always does the trick. Thanks.

OK. I checked the history about the track "Dazz" by John Ellison and Soul Brothers Six. A hit by the band Brick in the US. Did not have a deal for Canada. John Ellison and the band did a cover recorded in Toronto. Released by GRT Canada. #9 on CFRA in Ottawa.
