First week of March 2016, I spent the week in my new favorite city, Rotterdam! It was an honor to be an artist in residence, at the legendary studio @ WORM. They had many ultra rare synths, that I was extremely excited to use. The Arp2500, The Putney VC3, PPG and so much more.
I was creating source material for the new Fhloston Paradigm album for next year. I was trying to learn all the machines and used all the mistakes as material. It was an extremely fun process.
I also was lucky enough to catch up with longtime friend and producer, Benny Rodridges. Was great to see him after 15yrs. We even started a song....
As a bonus, I got to meet designer, Lola Gielen, who invented the Neo at the Design Academy in Eindhoven. I got in contact after seeing the instrument online and wanted to see it in person. She drove all the way to show me. Blessed.
Lastly, the roti in Rotterdam, oh my word! Surinamese beauty.
Revisting the groundbreaking event Moondance : A Night in the Afrofuture, that happened at MoMA PS1 in April 2014. We can't forget the narratives being built. I was honored to guest curate the whole event. So thankful to Ursula Rucker, Hank Shocklee, Hprizm, Ras G, Shabazz Palaces, Mike Todd, Pia Ercole, Ytasha Womack and Dr Alondra Nelson.
