Brownswood Bubblers is a series that brings emerging talent and exciting new artists from the Worldwide underground into the limelight. Each edition is compiled by Gilles Peterson, who creates a suite of perfect grooves. This sixth chapter in the Bubblers saga drops November 8th and brings out some of the finest tunes from some of the freshest artists including Great Weekend, Javelin, Grooveman Spot, MdCL, Quadron, and Pursuit Groove.
New comers Alecia Chakour & The Osrah have packed enough soul power in their debut EP Loomi to make you wonder if you accidentally fell into a time warp and came out in another era. Collectively, Alecia Chakour & The Osrah's individual band members have played with some amazing musicians from Mingus Big Band, Bilal, Yusef Lateef, to Billy Taylor, Amos Lee, Apollo Sunshine, and Cold Duck Complex. Lead by the power house vocals of Alecia Chakour, The Osrah (an Arabic word for family) will celebrate their debut at Nublu on Friday, October 29th at 9pm.
Check out the animated flyer for this friday's party here.

They’re back, and they’re even harder, better faster and stronger than before! Last night, Daft Punk made a surprise appearance at Madison Square Gardens during the Phoenix concert. Fog filled the stage, and when it cleared, Daft Punk was revealed in their usual attire of suits and futuristic helmets. They then played a quick set alongside their fellow Frenchmen, Phoenix.
Their appearance coincides with the creation of their soundtrack for the upcoming movie Tron: Legacy. The Tron: Legacy soundtrack will be released December 7th. A major coup for all you Daft Punk fans out there waiting for their return.
