Show Notes

Dilla Day 2016 at The Good Will in Winnipeg: an interview with Brendan Kinley of Super Duty Tough Work and R&B chanteuse Keisha Booker. It's the second time Super Duty have organized Dilla Day Winnipeg, which is to honour the late great hip hop producer's life and works. The night had guest performances by 3Peat, Fenom, Bazooka Joe, Chris Bvnnvtt and Keisha Booker. Together since 2014, Super Duty Tough Work is the brainchild of Brendan Kinley. He's an accomplished drummer and MC that has been in the Winnipeg music scene for a decade. They're an ensemble of musicians from the University of Manitoba's School of Jazz. SDTW plays 40 Dilla beats as they weave between them with the meticulousness of a DJ. The players at the 2016 performance: B.Grey (vox), Keisha Booker (vox), Shannon Kristjanson (alto sax), Anthony Bryson (trombone), Alec Meen (keys), Sam Little (bass), Kevin Water (drums), Jocelyn Gould (guitar).

WR604: Dog Dad Posse

While Manitoba is always the focus of the podcast, I also like to branch out and talk to members of what I call the “Manitoba diaspora” — artists from the prairies plying their trade elsewhere.Dog Dad Posse (a/k/a Sammy D) is one such artist. We talked about the journey that took him from Winnipeg singer-songwriter to exploring hip-hop — first in BC, now in Toronto — as well as his love for prairie rap, dogs, and so much more.

WR450: Greg Rekus

It's an interview with the hardest-working man in the Winnipeg music scene! [Greg Rekus](http://www.gregrekus.com/) is on the verge of releasing a new record with his band the Inside Job (*[Death & Taxes](http://greg-rekus.bandcamp.com/album/death-and-taxes)*) and will be heading out on more of his non-stop, globetrotting tours in 2020. Greg has been a delight to talk to ever since I first met him back in the ‘90s, and he’s one of those people who is welcome on the podcast anytime. I can only dream about hustling as hard – and having such a positive attitude – with this podcast as Greg Motha Fuckin’ Rekus does with his music. If you're listening on the day this comes out (Wednesday, Jan. 8), *Death and Taxes* is out now in streaming form, plus Greg's performing tonight at Sookram's Brewery with Grotoko, so head down and pick up a physical copy! This episode is brought to you by our pals at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/), as well as the Beer Boutique, managed by Winnipeg punk mainstay [StevO Nelson](http://www.facebook.com/beerboutiquewpg/). ...

WR295: Thatcher Robinson

"Punk-rap" artist [Thatcher Robinson](http://soundcloud.com/t-robin) hangs out in an unusually loud food court, talks about his new music, and attempts to explain the appeal of Soundcloud rap and emo rap to my old, out-of-touch brain. It's an interesting discussion, because I have absolutely no frame of reference for those subgenres. This episode is brought to you by our friends at the [Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/), who have a whole calendar of great upcoming shows. Check it out their website for more details! The episode is also brought to you by [Fourth Quarter Records](http://www.fourthquarterrecords.com/), your home for quality local hip-hop, as well as merchandise like the glorious 3Peat hoodies you've been seeing everywhere lately.
