This spring, Glen Porter (Project: Mooncircle) and 2econd Class Citizen (Equinox Records) will be touring together in europe.
With the help of ableton, an electric guitar, korg padcontrol, and a novation launchpad Porter recreates his ferocious dread fueled guitar-bass-drum-driven instrumentals. Using crisp and snappy beat thunder augmented by shuddering layers of tremolo-laden guitar twang Porter takes you on a journey through surf/psych/prog/folk beats drowned with wailing guitars and volcanic drumming. Set sail deep into the psyche of the “one-man-band”, Glen Porter, in his set for “The open road and the smell of blood” European tour spring 2013.
2econd Class Citizen (Equinox Records) has been keeping listeners spellbound with his unique psych/folk/hip-hop fusion for many years. Now he’s joined by Kevin Matthews a multi instrumentalist and keys man with a classical background and a love of many other styles from jazz to d&b for part 2 of The Small Minority tour. featuring music from his two albums both of which recieved favourible reviews from many well respected artists and reviewers alike.
This project draws on Kevin’s musical skills and Aaron’s intuitive and astounding song building wizardry – expanding the sound in a truly exciting fashion.
We hope one of these shows will be near your area because we are most certain you will love it. If not, don’t worry. You might still have a chance since more tour dates might be added soon!
Be on the lookout.

Equinox Records presents:
The ‘Strange Citizens’ Tour
Ceschi (USA – Equinox Records / Fake Four)
2econd Class Citizen (London, UK – Equinox Records)
Buddy Peace (London, UK – Strange Famous Records)
October 6th – 16th 2010
Ladies, gentlemen and kinfolk, we would like to formally invite you to our three man show. Taking place over ten days in October 2010, we will be taking our music on the road to selected locations in Europe, to bring you our delightfully demented and deliciously powerful blend of beats and rhymes.
We bring you Ceschi, the one man band who is as comfortable freaking a solo set as he is working with any combination of his amazing group of friends (such as the Fake Four squadron, for example). Having toured and worked with Sole, Mykah 9 and Awol One (to name but a few), Ceschi displays the elements of rap which are always begging to be set free- uniqueness, creativity and pure originality. With a heavy hitting foundation of acoustic folk and abstract hip hop, expect a skilful and hugely entertaining presentation of what hip hop music can do when it is gently pushed in the right direction. His fantastic current album, ‘The One Man Band Broke Up’, is out now on Equinox Records and making much noise.
2econd Class Citizen is right up there riding shotgun (in a triple barrel sense), strapped with a punishing array of dusty drum breaks, sweet sample psychedelia and two very busy hands. With a wide sample-based repertoire which often extends into live instrumentation and areas far beyond conventional instrumental beat based music, 2CC’s live set incorporates heavy manipulation and extreme head nod potential, providing a vibrant and hefty showcase of bitter-sweet but straight up bumping productions. His work and stage time with Noah23, Ceschi, Nosaj thing, Ugly Duckling and even prog-rock legends Gong give some indication of the standards of dopeness you can expect from 2CC.
Buddy Peace is also in the building. Currently signed to Strange Famous Records, the label run by indie hip hop legend Sage Francis, Buddy has some treats to share with you. From a background of DJing and prolific mixtape production, he has been producing for a good while and has produced/scratched/DJ’d for Buck 65, Sage Francis, B Dolan, 2Mex and Prince Po to name a couple. The Buddy live show mushes together the DJ and production elements, with live MPC drums and programming with a very turntable mind-set, and you can surely expect some head-pounding and cheerfully savage drums, cuts and invention which bring out the creative and rugged side of hip hop music.
We would be honoured by your company. We will not disappoint you. We will be very happy to see you. The Strange Citizen tour will make October of 2010 a very wonderful month indeed. Let’s catch up…
