Funk, Jazz, Hip Hop & Reggae all in one! The Concept of Dirty Bottom is to represent the Low-end theory and rootical ridims of the southern hemisphere. They called upon Vancouvers rhyhtmic wizard and long time OldSOFA Allstar Brennan 'ahh you guys' Saul to hit the traps for a week of off the floor sessions at Eastvans' lengendary Profile Studios. The trio recorded the beds live from March 7-10 2006, all overdubs and additional sessions were recorded at OldSOFA and Topspin studios in Vancouver. The vibe of the album, King Tubby meets Blue Note at an East Vancouver BBQ with celebrity chef James Brown. Late one Thursday night....I mean real late... The Doc on trumpet and Corduroy on harmonica started riffin' over play back thru the talkback mic. This created a template for a call and response playfulness that embodies the whole album. All the background vocals were captured on one mic, one take hard panned Motown/I-Threes style by the Dirty Bottom choir. Coming from both geographical and musically divergent backgrounds Langston Bella Coola"Reggae", Brennan Vancouver "Jazz", and Shawn Toronto "Soul" meant that these cats had a wide pallet for musical guests. These artists included Kilo Cee on the Decks, Serwan Yamolky on the oud, Chad MaKela on baritone sax, and Edan Armstrong on percussion. Singers ranged from the Animated antics of Mike Ackhurst, suggestive themes of Bianca Carli, and collaborative poetry of Laura Crema and Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm.

They will be joined by one of Victoria's favourite party hip hop groups from Saltspring Island - GET SOME w/ the Island's Hip Hop DJ King - Degree One!

Tickets on sale now at Lyle's Place, Comnplex, Jamaican Jerkhouse & TICKETWEB.COM.
