    Hey everyone!

    Wow it's been a while. I hope you're all well :)

    Sorry for my absence from the forum — things have been pretty hectic and I don't make as much time for my Warwick buddies as I should. I am going to rectify that!

    So, here's some updates as to what's been happening in the last few months...

    I've been doing a lot of touring with Blitz The Ambassador, a hip hop act from Brooklyn, New York. We've been playing shows mostly around the US — there's a European tour coming this summer but I won't be doing it... am staying here with the 'US band' to cover shows here and some of the Canadian festivals. Here are the dates:

    July 12th - Victoria Ska Fest, Canada
    July 14th - Vancouver Folk Festival, Canada
    July 27th + 28th - Calgary Music Festival , Canada
    August 2nd - MetroTech Music Festival, NYC

    If anyone's around for those please let me know, I'd love to meet up.

    Apart from this band I have been doing a lot of freelance for many different artists in NYC. I'm now Musical Director for most of the gigs I do, and also program & play keyboard bass / keyboards. So much for being a bass player!

    Here's a shot of my most recent setup... there's a few things not pictured (Akai APC40 for Ableton, my wireless IEM rig, and the Aguilar rig behind me...):

    That's a Moog Voyager and an AKAI Midi keyboard controller for Ableton. The Moog sounds INSANE.



    Finally, and most importantly, I've kicked off production of my own project called Rhythm & Stealth. It's kind of experimental electronica / hip hop, drawing on my influences (especially UK electronica of the 90's... think Massive Attack, Tricky, etc).

    I've set up a little Kickstarter website to see if I can cover some of the costs... check it out and feel free to contribute if you feel so inclined! No pressure :)

    Anyway, it's great to be back!!!!

    Peace

    Lex
