Hotter than July-Stevie Wonder Documentary (1980)

Wow.
Stevie Wonder=love.

London and Gilles Peterson's award show footage

I usually take alot more footage and pictures when I travel but i was completely caught up in the experience.

Rocking with United Vibrations (who are AMAZING), hanging with the new homie Homeboy Sandman, meeting the cats from Radiohead, talking about music and crossing genres with James Blake, plus dancing to all the incredible dj's from the night (LEFTO!!!!) and Flying Lotus' great set! WOW!!! I'm more inspired than ever and super stoked that there are cats like Gilles still exposing mass amounts of people to great music!

Anyway here's the little footage i did get from an AMAZING trip to London where I performed at Gilles Peterson's World Wide Awards show!

Good music is alive and being supported, What an inspiring night!!!

"For What You've Lost" WORLD TOUR DATES!!!

Peace ya'll 


I'm gearing up to hit the road to promote my new album "For What You've Lost" I'm really excited for this! I wanted to do something different with this release so I teamed up with 4 different indie labels from around the world...

Trad Vibe in France >>>>> http://www.tradvibe.com/
Paper Chain in Australia >>>>> http://paperchain.squarespace.com/
Milkdipper in Japan &>>>>> http://www.milkdipper.com/
A Champion Sound in U.S. >>>>> under construction


Each country has a different album cover and in some cases different songs!

All of these labels are either ran by artists I've collaborated with or are labels of fam I've worked with. So I'm hitting all these countries to do shows/press/dance/collaborate/eat/take pictures/shoot videos/meet folks and spread my music!

I'm still confirming dates so check back for updates! If you want me in your town hit me up at raashanbooking@gmail.com. Hope to see you at the show and tell your folks!

Peace,
Raashan
