One of the highlights of our last tour was playing at the Bonnaroo festival. The first day we arrived there was an all African music schedule on one stage. I saw King Sunny Ade, Toumani Diabate and the best band in all of Africa: Femi Kuti and the Postive Force, but the most amazing was watching Amadou and Miriam from the front row photographers area... check my photo/video... Sabali is their new single and while it doesn't feature Amadou's ninja guitar playing, its a beautiful lovers anthem...

After Bonnaroo, we drove thru Memphis, Tennessee and checked out the Stax Records museum. Stax is the record label and recording studio that brought Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Isaac Hayes and so many more to the world. Oh yeah, and Booker T and the MGs were the house band. Check out "Hold on I'm Coming" performed by Sam and Dave written by Isaac Hayes and David Porter, titled after an exclamation coming from one of them running late from the bathroom...

Big up to Diplo for the Clash/Warrior Queen mashup from his Santogold mixtape "Top Ranking" How many Clash references can you count on that album??? (answer: 4... ghetto defendant, guns of brixton, the radio skit from london calling, and guest appearances by MIA, whose biggest hit is one big clash sample: straight to hell)
