Man, I knew I was going to have a great day. I slept well this weekend, had a great breakfast and was starting to plan things in my head - great things. I've been in touch with House Shoes since last fall trying to set things up for February's Dilla month in Toronto. But I knew there were rumblings of something bigger to take place.... An they were confirmed today in an email:
Stones Throw is bringing the Chitown bi-monthly to Toronto: MOVE.
I had been trying to get down to that night in the Chi for a min (I like heading down there + I have yet to go to Sonotech), but as of today, it has officially made it's move to Toronto.
On deck will be: Egon, J-Rocc & Madlib. We dearly missed J-Rocc @ The Dec 1st tour stop. But, we'll have him in the best environment. Add Madlib, and Egon? If that were not crazy enough, it might get even crazier. Why you ask??
★ February is Dilla Month ★.
The Stones Throw massive will make certain that the man's legacy carries onwards. For anyone who recalls the April 2007 event @ Revival, you know that this one will be just as bananas.
So the count down is on.
This info is so fresh, many of the details have now been ironed out and they go something like this:
Stones Throw x GoodFoot presents: MOVE
Featuring J-Rocc, Karriem Riggins, Egon & Koushik.
February 16th, 2007.

Stones Throw bills it, J Dilla and Guilty Simpson kills it. Enjoy.
