Ok yes, this New Noize post is late but its been a whirlwind of a week. Tool is finally on Spotify, Fiesta Week here in Santa Barbara, and the most important thing had to be EVO this past weekend, especially if you are Pakistani. Why? Arslan Ash came out and absolutely BODIED the entire Tekken 7 circuit. Lets be honest for a hot minute, in America there are very few "positive" reflections of "us". This is changing with people like Aziz, Mindy and Hassan, but lets take an amazing show that know for its inclusive and diversity, EUPHORIA. This HBO show is fantastic but apparently in this surreal portrait of Americana all Asians are non-existent or stuck in AP class. The season ended in a freaking musical sign off very reminiscent of EVERY BOLLYWOOD movie in existence yet not one South Asian kid even in the exit number?

tumblr_oqzo7gvhvP1uq6svio1_540.gif

Enter the chosen one, a kid that put an entire nation on his back, Arslan Ash. All of his wins prior to this were deemed by almost everyone as "flukes" as he came out of no where. This warrior won EVO Japan and people still doubted him until this weekend. He ran through the competition, easily made it to the top 8 where he continued his domination and the finals. After wining he knelt to the ground (as all Muslims do 5x a day) to give thanks to the almighty and reinforced all that in all his messaging while including his mom.

I'm not crying, your crying. As you read this you may think this is not a big deal, you are WRONG. We are not represented in anything sports related at all, Baseball, basketball, hockey, football, USA soccer, until now. This is all thanks to the Fighting Game Community, specifically the EVOLUTION tournament. A tournament like no other in the world, a TRULY INCLUSIVE tournament. Pro, amateur, male, female, trans, gay, straight (or any spectrum) any race, any creed and any age as long as you are human you can enter. I am glad to be a part of this community and thankful for its existence.

For all those that missed it, here is the championship bout between the Tekken GOD Arslan Ash vs Knee(a Tekken GOD in his own right, only he gets crushed)

and here is the dude on ESPN:

This happened on Sunday as I was covering the Reggae Soundclash before switching over to New Noize and let me tell you I was HYPED for a solid 2 hours. Since I was on full tilt I kicked off the show with a healthy dose of metal and smoothed out the rest of the 2 hours with all the latest jams. I am really digging this band called Miynt. Their new album "Stay on Your Mind" is thick with solid jams that will fill your space with dopeness

Lastly I'm seeing Flylo on Thursday, its his 1st show of his new tour and I will have loads to say about that as well as giving you another 2 hours of New Noize come next Sunday.

Getting back to EVO...

You know I am a Dragonball FightersZ guy here is the finals between SonicFox vs GO1 (again IM NOT CRYING YOU ARE) and yes my GUY SonicFox maynot have won Dragonball FightersZ but he did end up winning Mortal Kombat 11.

My GUY SonicFox may not have won Dragonball FightersZ but he did end up winning Mortal Kombat 11.

This time for reals, see you next Sunday.

This summer has been full tilt. This past weekend I saw the Melvins open up for the The Raconteurs at the Santa Barbara Bowl and it was great. It was a "no cellphone" show which is fine, I honestly don't care either way.

Fiesta week is upon us and for all the non-locals that read this blog you should come into town and get down with the raddest part SB has to offer. {so much cultural appropriation} For all the party people that are attending I'll be working the beer garden Saturday night at the Casa Cantina, stop by and give me all the high fives.

New Noize was popping as it always is. Side note I am SO PROUD of myself, I got Trash-UP records in Japan to forward me the new BORIS EP "tears" for last Sundays show. It is a slight departure form their sound and is much more "fun & lighthearted" than their normal work which is refreshing.

New Noize is here for another round in newness on all things music. This like last week was more of a hodgepodge of new music. Being the most diverse new music show in the land is a tough order, especially when there is so much new music coming out its a bit overwhelming.

Hopefully this weeks mix turns you on to a few things you have never heard of as well as reignited some passion you might of lost touch with. I mean there is new Killswitch Engage, Hives, Iggy Pop, Wilco, Redd Cross and YES I even spun new Puddle of Mudd.

Let me know what you think of this past weeks set. Now if you will excuse me I will be putting on my 3 star Goku uniform full of life fibers in celebration for Kill la Kill IF coming out on the 26th.

Summer is hear in full force and to celebrate I deiced to eat glow in the dark ramen this past weekend down in LA. It was a wonderful experience in a fantastically hidden place high atop the Hollywood Hills. The views from this restaurant was ridiculous. My panoramic iphone pictures do not do it justice (plus it was a bit smoggy/foggy outside). The pop-up was situated in the parking lot of this extremely busy restaurant. You descend through a series of back door corridors and wind up in this basement like space full of looking Shintaro Kago inspired artwork. I felt like I was in a a Flying Lotus cover art for "You're Dead"

After our hostess gave our small party of strangers a rundown of the Yokai folklore behind this whole dining experience which set the mood we were escorted to eat. My noodles were a neon orange. My egg was this blueish yellow tint and my goodness the drink was this yellow electric mountain dew color. I'm not one for "dining experiences" as I think they are pretty pretentious but I may have to reevaluate my stance. It was great and I highly recommend it: http://www.dashboard.us/glowinthedark-ramen-shop

I made it back on Sunday and did my New Noize set. This week was a true mix up of all things coming out plus some deep dives on records that just came out. The new Tycho record, Weather, is amazing and if your a fan very different with the addition of Saint Sinner singing vocals on at least 5 tracks. Khruangbin new album, Hasta El Ceilo, is finally out. Now some may say that this record is just the DUB version of Con Todo El Mundo and those people would be 100% correct as that is how the band literally has the record listed on all major streaming platforms. If you like Khruangbin and Dub music then you will love Hasta El Ceilo.

See you next Sunday.
