If you are still surfing the net tonight, tune in the launch of The Rebel Beat, “a show of radical political music across different genres, and across different continents.” Their guests tonight are Ricardo “Emrical” Lamour-Blaise, Jahsun of Kalmunity and M1 from Dead Prez.
Sadly, M1 will only be attending via Skype since CBSA did not grant him access to Canadian soil on January 31st, gladly the internet knows no borders! M1 was coming to the 514 to give a talk and a performance for the opening of Fro Foundation’s Black History Month.
The Rebel Beat describe themselves as “the mixtape to a riot against police brutality. It is your nightly newscast set to bass and beats. It is a rallying cry against apathy. It is protest anthems from Hong Kong to Istanbul to Ferguson to Montreal.”
The show will air every Wednesday from 10pm-12am EST on CKUT 90.3 FM in Montreal, it can be streamed or downloaded at CKUT FM. Make sure to subscribe to their podcast as well. The show is hosted by Aaron Maiden and featuring regular collaborators and guest DJ’s.

The show will go on!
