DICE Conference + Festival

Thrilled to finally share the recording of this in-depth conversation from DICE Conference + Festival 2019 with Black Artists working in the creative industries. Featuring Mac Folkes, Esther Jeroboan, Crystallmess, Djibril Sall, and myself.

"Race, Gender, and Identity Politics as Currency: Whose is it to Spend?" is a panel discussion with Mac Folkes, Esther Jeroboan, Christelle Oyiri & Djibril Sall, conceptualized and moderated by DICE co-curator Ari Robey-Lawrence.

This all-Black panel interrogates the intentions behind “diversity” initiatives, particularly among music platforms that have been criticized for their lack of diversity. It further asks what sort of role identity should play in dance music and what an identity-based economy might look like when motivated by equitable representation, as opposed to the appearance of “diversity”?

Research Stage of Love, by Wizard Apprentice & The Neighbourhood Character

Research Stage of Love is an ode to Romance in our current age of dystopian Science.

A deep dive into the enigmatic mind and its myriad phases on the human journey towards Love.

Moments of growth, infatuation, certainty, and self-awareness made manifest.

A whole mood conceived by one of the beautiful ones;

Felt, embodied & re-interpreted by another.

This is Radical Departures 001.

Available now on Bandcamp.

This release marks the beginning of a new limited edition vinyl series. Wood Work Collective is proud to announce Radical Departures, a genre-bending project which aims to cultivate a spectrum of distinctive impressions around a unique and original composition.

Thrilled to announce that preorder is now possible for the newest project on the wood // work digital imprint.

In the winter of 2014, three friends embarked on a series of annually-recurring jam sessions at a studio in Wedding, Berlin. Emphasizing a loose improvisational collaborative process, these recordings offer a raw and emotive range of nuances that emerge from a site-specific musical dialogue.

BRATISLAVA, Wow!! You all were just amazing!

Thanks so much to the dancers who were tearing it up on the floor until they kicked us out- could not have been happier to play for such a lovely crowd of folks.

I also want to give a massive thanks to my lovely host Roman Samotny, who has been dedicated to organising a range of queer events like Tepláreň in Slovakia for the last 7 years. Much respect and love to you for keeping the culture alive in a small city ✊🏾

Get Up.
