Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat on CKUT – your weekly dose of revolutionary music and class war on the dance floor!
Our very special guests on the show this week are anarchist hip-hop duo Drowning Dog & Malatesta. This talented and lyrically hard-hitting group formed in San Francisco in 2005, and are now based in Berlin. They just released their new album “Black cat – best you can get!”, and we caught up with them to talk about everything from gentrification, anarchism, class consciousness, and hip hop.
Lace up your boots, my friends, dust off your brass knuckles, and get ready for another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! This week on the show, we laid down a raucous, at times brutal, at times folky, antifascist music set. This is in following with our previous discussions on the unfolding refugee crisis in Europe and the Middle East, the response of fascist governments and their shock troops in several countries, but also on the heroic solidarity of anti-fascist militants, not to mention the bravery of the migrants themselves.
Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! After taking a week off, we’re back at it, refreshed as ever. Our special guest on the program this week is Shane Kelsey aka. Project Toombz. Shane is a Montreal-based Indigenous hip-hop artist, but also works as an activist and frontline worker at a homeless shelter. He started to make waves in MTL with his previous outfit, Northern Collection, but after parting ways with his bandmate, launched a solo project under Project Toombz. He’s already put out some amazing videos, and is now crowd-funding for his first full-length album, “Nomad”. Check it, pre-order your copy, and support the album by clicking here!
Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat!
Our special guest on the show this week is long-time Mohawk Indigenous activist and filmmaker Clifton Nicholas. Clifton hails from the Mohawk reserve of Kanehsatake, located just north of Montreal. Kanehsatake made world headlines in 1990, during what is now known as the Oka Crisis, when Mohawks took up arms and blockaded their land in the face of a full-blown Canadian military invasion. The goal – to defend a Mohawk burial site from being destroyed and turned into a golf course. Continue reading →

Welcome back to the weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! In this edition of the podcast, we bring you our monthly collaboration with The Stimulator of Submedia.TV. As always, he brings an amazing selection of riot and insurrection inciting tunes!

We’re very excited to bring you this week’s podcast of The Rebel Beat, which offers a special feature on the amazing “Native North America (Vol. 1)” which came out on Light in the Attic records last November. Light in the Attic has put out some amazing reissues over the years, but this one is a powerful reflection on older Native folk tunes which speak to issues of decolonization, spirituality, love, and rock n’ roll.
From the Light in the Attic website;
Largely unheard, criminally undocumented, but at their core, utterly revolutionary, the recordings of the diverse North American Aboriginal community will finally take their rightful place in our collective history in the form of NativeNorth America (Vol. 1): Aboriginal Folk, Rock, and Country 1966–1985. An anthology of music that was once near-extinct and off-the-grid is now available for all to hear, in what is, without a doubt, Light In The Attic’s most ambitious and historically significant project in the label’s 12-year journey.
