The Superpoaster circle is complete.
The OGs will remember the infamous superpoaster (from--holy crap--14 years ago!). See for example
(but I can't find the infamous troll thread that resulted in superpoaster posting a video showing off his Sergio Mendes "Pele" album as if it were the --Raj maybe you locate it?)
Anyway, despite some teenage cringe, supepoaster--aka Jesse Futerman--is (and was) a terrific guy who graduated from soulstrut to make real world moves, most recently this collaboration with Beverly Beverly Glenn-Copeland:
It's a thing:
etc. etc. etc.
Now check out Jesse's acknowledgments:
That's right: soulstrut gets a thanks (and, as you may have noticed, before Gilles, who started playing Jesse's music back in the day).
The soulstrut legacy is real.
For me it's not about selling out, it's the indignity of it all. These aren't people who need to be paid. They're people who like Master Class's appeal to their vanity. If Questlove wanted to share his thoughts on curation, he could post a video to Youtube, but that's not quite the same as looking at the camera and saying, with cringy sincerity, "this is my master class". Come on now. I feel like Diplo, who seems as mercenary as anyone (and still owes me a Leon Thomas LP), would have had more fun with it.

Kool pic from a morning last week. Heading to the local trails:
Winter's apparently coming, but we're already to November without a storm. Leaves have all changed colors but no wind or rain to knock them down, it's kinda crazy.
So gorgeous! I'd love to ride those trails.
This is one of my local trails. Part of 70km singletrack network accessed from a trailhead 7 minutes from my apartment and 25 minutes from the heart of Toronto's financial core.
