Happy Holidays from everyone at Upper Class.
We at Upper Class Recordings ask only a few things of you as 2006 comes to an exit…
1 – VOTE FOR CADENCE WEAPON AT THE PLUG AWARDS! Breaking Kayfabe is nominated for Hip Hop album of the year!
2 – GET CRUNK WITH THE RUSSIAN FUTURISTS DECEMBER 28 @ THE DRAKE! Their last live show…of 2006!
3 – VOTE AT THE CBC RADIO3 BUCKY AWARDS! Cadence Weapon is already nominated for some things but the good news is you can nominate anyone so you can still vote in Matt Hart of The Russian Futurists as sexiest male canadian or best facial hair! Also make sure you check out the Coke Machine Glow end of the year Podcast…among what will be a great collection of songs will be Cadence Weapon covering Chad Vangaalen…and you can tune into CBC Radio’s ‘Definitely Not The Opera’ soon to hear Cadence spreading Christmas cheer through his version of “We Three Kings” Keep an eye on the UC turntable in the top right there…i’m sure there are some UC Christmas upper classiks working their way in to the mix!
And one last thing…prepare yourself for 2007 – the year of Laser Rock…get ready for The Cansecos “Juices!”
UC hit CMJ in New York City at the beginning of the month – Cadence Weapon rocked some shows at Fontana’s and The Mercury Lounge – big thanks to Terrorbird Media and Brooklyn Vegan for throwing good parties and inviting Cadence to play! Props to the Swedish homies Lo-Fi-Fnk and the Aussie homies Macromantics. Then Cadence Weapon went on a 9-date tour across Canada with Jurassic 5! Vancouver twice, Calgary, Edmonton, London, Kitchener, Toronto, Ottawa & Montreal…peace to J5 and everyone who came out to see the shows! The geniuses at Spy Films shot the video for Cadence Weapon “Sharks” after the J5 tour and the details are pretty top secret but you’ll see it next year!
