S2/ Ep7: Getting Bright, Free, and 'Facety' with Tygapaw

Sometimes we have to sink into the depths so that we can eventually GET FREE. So, if you’re ready to give yourself over to word and sound power, then listen in on this conversation with my guest, the DJ-producer, Jamaican-raised, Brooklyn-dwelling, soundscape-maker, and body-controller Dion McKenzie, better known as Tygapaw.  We discuss marronage, trauma, music, badmind, and process. This episode features new music by Tygapaw whose debut album GET FREE is available for purchase on Bandcamp.com and for streaming elsewhere.  This episode features "Facety," "Who Can't Hear Must Feel" and references "Ode to Black Trans Lives" and "Ownland."  This episode launches on World AIDS Day 2020 and also references the poetry of Kwame Dawes. I hope that my conversation with this awesome DJ may save somebody's life. This is #ForPosterity
