DJ /rupture, also known as Jace Clayton, has been praised for elevating the art of turntablism with his complex, politically-suggestive style. When you combine his skills (and those of collaborators Matty G and Lloop) with the words of poet Elizabeth Alexander, you're pretty much guaranteed a home run. This track from Rupture's 2009 joint venture with Matt Shadetek features Alexander reading her poem about the 1985 bombing of the MOVE Organization in Philadelphia. A reworked Curtis Mayfield sample supplies an awesome, strut-worthy base underneath Alexander's stirring words.

I want to let you know that the Sinfonietta of Riverdale, conducted by Mark Mandarano, will perform a concert that is sure to delight the whole family on on Sunday, September 19th at 2pm, at Wave Hill in the Bronx. I’m hoping that you’ll share this news on your blog. We’d love to have your readers come out and enjoy an afternoon of beautiful music and explore Wave Hill! We’d also like to add you to our mailing list so you can stay up-to-date on all our family-friendly programs. A highlight in October for instance is Enchanted Wave Hill Weekend, which will give families a chance to explore fairy gardens, learn the mythology of oak trees, and indulge in fairy cakes and other fun foods at our child-friendly, family brunch!

We hope to see you soon!
