Here it is! The very first podcast of The Rebel Beat. We’ll be coming at you live every Wednesday from 10pm-12am on CKUT radio! You can stream it live from anywhere in the world at, or tune in on the FM at 90.3 in Montreal. And be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes (rate it! leave a review!), or click here for our RSS feed.

We were very blessed to be joined live in studio by Emrical and Jahsun of the mighty Kalmunity Vibes Collective. We talked about their work as artists, the Kalmunity Black History Month event series in Montreal, and the reverberations of the #BlackLivesMatter movement north of the colonial border.

We also heard a short address by the legendary M-1 of Dead Prez, who was supposed to perform in Montreal on January 31st, but was unjustly denied entry into Canada.

Be sure to check out and grab Emrical’s album “Cheval de Trois” here:


And definitely check out Jahsun’s new afro-futurist ensemble dArk mAAt’r here:

We hope you enjoy this week’s podcast! Be sure to check us out next week for a collaboration with the long-running anarchist video project, Submedia.TV, as well as an interview with former Black Panther political prisoner Ashanti Alston.

Until then, as Jahsun says, “YOU CAN’T REBEL WITHOUT A BEAT!”
