SXSW 2009 Discovery: Black Spade

BLACK SPADE

After discovering Anya Marina, Bam, Zoneil, and I rushed over to the SmokingSection / NahRight marathon hip hop showcase with hopes of grabbin’ some free Taco Cabana – which, for those not knowin’, is the best fuckin’ Tex Mex foodchain EVER! Imagine El Pollo Loco goodness combined with JackInTheBox-like menu options – no luck though, false promises.

While we wait for the Blue Scholars to perform, a trio of St. Louis emcees open up the show, including Black Spade.

DOWNLOAD 1: Black Spade – “Evil Love”
DOWNLOAD 2: Black Spade – “Good Crazy”
Both songs from To Serve With Love (Om Records, 2008)

Even before his formal set, dude perked my ears. He was behind his MPC playing futuristic beats and singing/adlib-ing for the first emcee, Rockwell Knuckles. By the time he got into “Good Crazy” in his own set, me and Lambo were singing along and fist punching along with the hook.

Another late pass, I know. Especially since the homie, Nick James, remixed a couple of tracks from To Serve With Love LAST YEAR! Download them here.

EVENT: 2.28.09 | “A SONG FOR OURSELVES” World Premier ft. Blue Scholars, Bambu, & Kiwi | Aratani Theatre, LA

During the 1970s when Asians in America were invisible to the country – and more importantly even to themselves – the late Chris Iijima’s music provided the voice and identity an entire generation had been in search of. Through animated photographs, intimate home movies, archival footage and Chris’ own songs, A SONG FOR OURSELVES, shows how Chris’ music unleashed the contagious energy of the Asian American Movement with an unrelenting passion for social justice and a life well lived.
