“I can’t live my, ah, I can’t live my
I CAN’T LIVE MY LIFE THIS WAAAAAY!”
So unless you’ve been diagnosed with terminal soul-death, there is no way you cannnot be uplifted by This Way, geddit? So as you can imagine I was bouncing off the fucking walls last weekend when DJ BABU of DILATED PEOPLES, people (!) guest starred at the Squat Festival in Lapa here in Rio! Now, I`ve never been that great at forming opinion; the concept of constructive critisicm just eludes me ‘cos I find pretty much everything amazing howeverrrr, this gig truly was amaaaaazing. It also featured Brazilian DJ Sany Pitbull who along with the crowd were pretty awesome so thank you everyone and the ticket touts particularly for giving me such a memorable and decidely cheap night out.
Being in Lapa also afforded me my first glimpse of the phenomenal JR art exhibition which features the faces of women who’ve all had male relatives murdered by the Brazilian police , plastered over the magnificent Lapa Arches. I’ll be posting a much more in-depth review of that exhibition very soon. Heart-breaking stuff. And that weren’t enough, I returned home just in time to witness just about the most incredible sunrise ever from my very own terrace in Vidigal favela.
Now, I was torn between posting This Way or Worst Comes To Worst, two of my all time favourite tracks, but This Way wins out for being THE anthem my girl Nooshin `Moz Def` Shabani and my 2007 tour of Latin America, so this ones for you baby girl!
Loads more fun & pics apres le jump!
The man who made it happen! DJ Babuuuu!
