Say Word Radio // Piu Piu Vibes

This Week’s show was particularly huge!

As always we began with a quick Hip Hop News Feed so S/O to Sikk for her new website pacesix, Jjanice+ for his new video ‘Aléas’, Hala Alsalman for getting a spot at the New Port Beach film festival for her Film Bêtes Humaines, Simahlak for working with the guys from Lonely Island and dropping the beat for Spin the Globe, Sarah MK,The Narcycist and Nomadic Massive for landing spots at the Jazz Fest and last but not least BIG S/O to Karim Ouellet and Kaytradamus for landing spots at Osheaga!

We followed up with a talk spot about the political situation in Montreal which unfortunately seems to be awfully stagnant on the government’s part. To Lighten up the day though we had a great interview with Dr. Mad (Beat maker extraordinaire and member of Alaiz) about his current projects and trip to California which was followed another amazing interview with Aisha C Vertus where she also told us about their trip to Cali but mainly talked about the highly anticipated Piu Piu Documentary that she’s working on right now. It’s was a pretty epic episode so be sure to listen to it right here!

We also took the opportunity to RAVE about how great the new Dead Obies album ‘Collation vol.1’ and luckily for y’all we were able to book an interview with them this Thursday so be sure to tune in to CJLO 1690AM  (www.cjlo.com) from 11-1pm.

Respects to Nik Brovkin for the great Piu Piu artwork

Noisemakers 2011 [and promising big for 2012]

Hey listeners and readers! So first off Happy New Year!! I’m not sure how deep into the year we’re supposed to keep saying that but I feel like I haven’t had a chance to really wish you the best yet. So Happy New Year to all you and I really wish you a year full of new experiences, good times, productivity and great music.

Secondly I want to tell you guys a little about our new format of Say Word! Yup new year, new say word. We used to dibble and dabble between being a talk show and a music show in 2011 but we’ve decided that if we want to promote Montreal hip hop culture to the fullest we are better off sticking to the talk show format. I’ll still be bringing you guys some sick new tracks but the quantity will be reduced so we can focus on what’s going on the city. From now on you can count on Say Word! for the Hip-Hop news feed [local and international], major topics in Hip-Hop culture, bi-weekly interviews, weekly album reviews and of course your community calendar. With all this extra room for talk we also want to get you guys involved in the discussions so feel free to call us during the show at 514-848-7471 or tweet us what’s on your mind on our twitter @saywordmtl.

Ok so let’s get this ball rolling! This is week ‘s topic was Mtl Noisemakers of 2011 [and promising big for 2012]. You can listen to the episode here. Making this list was extremely hard for us cause Montreal has mad talent and it’s hard to selected only a few. This time around we tried to focus on people and groups that really stepped their game up in 2011 and that we think deserved even more spotlight than they’ve received in the past year.  If you have people that you think really should have made this list please e-mail at saywordmtl@gmail.com and we’ll follow up with a volume 2 of the list.
