Antony & Cleopatra

Justin Faust

Great House Music consists of more than just a steady "four on the floor" beat, some samples, random vocals and/or the popular production software of the day - it needs to have some SOUL and fun in the mix.

These latest releases from Vitalic Noise's London-based duo Anthony & Cleoptra and Nurvous Records' Justin Faust (cranking out tunes via Munich) have the catchy hooks, production, lively vocals that aren't autotuned to robotic numbness and pure fun that is sometimes missing in what sometimes feels like the cut-and-paste arena modern day dance music.

While their various tunes definitely show the influence of Disco, Electro and Pop music's pasts, none of these songs feel dated in any way and are ready set for everyone to fall into some enjoyable grooves.

The FuseBox Radio Broadcast/BlackRadioIsBack.com family has been a part of Canada's North by Northeast (NXNE) for the past few years on the performance and press coverage ends and we have always had a great time checking out their music, film, comedy, interactive and art programming.

The diverse Canadian festival (based in Toronto, ON) can basically be thought of by folks in the U.S. as the up-North version of South by Southwest (SXSW) in terms of the high quality and eclecticness of acts.

Going down this year from June 17 - 21, 2015, the programming on the music end is already in full swing with an diverse and dope set of international independent and major label talent in the Hip-Hop, Rock, EDM and Pop genres, including acts like Action Bronson, Ibeyi, Vince Staples, Blonde Redhead and plenty more.  

With at least 2 - 3 more rounds of act announcements coming down the pipeline in the upcoming months, it's shaping up to be a pretty fly event so far.

Check out some of our NXNE 2012, 2013 & 2014 photo, video & written coverage here on the BlackRadioIsBack.com website and hit up North by Northeast at their official websites below for more updates on updated music acts, programming, ticket prices (which are literally some of the best I've personally ever seen for a multi-day festival) and more:


In the meantime, check out some tunes from the current lineup of NXNE 2015 Music headling artists via Spotify here:

** We're still a bit under the weather this week due to colds and the flu, so here's a special flashback episode of the radio show for folks to listen to this week that falls right into place for Black History Month 2015 here in the United States! **

This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Ausar Ra Black Hawk for the week of February 18, 2015 (originally broadcast on the week August 20, 2008) with some new and classic music from the international Black Diaspora, news and commentary.



During that week, we had a great interview with author Douglas A. Blackmon for his book, "Slavery By Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II" (now currently out on Doubleday Books), which "brings to light one of the most shameful chapters in American history—when a cynical new form of slavery was resurrected from the ashes of the Civil War and re-imposed on hundreds of thousands of African-Americans until the dawn of World War II" by throwing Black Men, Women and Children into prison in the South for labor purposes under false pretenses to be arrested. 

Feel free to check out more information about him and "Slavery By Another Name" the official book website, http://www.SlaveryByAnotherName.com

Due to the interview, there was no new segment of Black Agenda Report and no Direct EFX segment. 

Feel free to check out some recent episodes of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast over at our official blog, BlackRadioIsBack.com - all of the shows are clean/radio friendly.

This is the latest & BRAND NEW episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Ausar Ra Black Hawk for the week of February 4, 2015 with some new and classic music from the international Black Diaspora, news and commentary.




Our extended commentary this week during the show (it takes up about the 1st hour of the radio show) touched base on the many reasons Black History Month is still a necessity in the U.S. (especially after the year that was 2014 for Black America), a school in D.C. that fired teachers for teaching "too much" Black History, updates what has been going on in Ferguson, MO + with the civil suit from Tamir Rice's family, the various happenings behind the scenes and beyond during this year's Super Bowl (including NFL Media Day Dramas with Seattle Seahawk's Marshawn Lynch, Katy Perry's halftime show being made way better by Missy Elliot, insane 4th quarter play calling shenanigans & more), actor/comedian/author/activist Dick Gregory getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, updates on the battle for Net Neutrality, kangaroos in McDonalds and some other things here and there.

There is no new new Black Agenda Report segment on this week's show due to our extended commentary.

** Due to doing some reconfiguration of the FuseBox Radio Broadcast's studio during the past week, we did not get a new episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast up in time, so here's a flashback episode for folks to listen to! ** 

This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Ausar Ra Black Hawk for the weeks of January 21 & 28, 2015 [originally broadcast on the week of July 8, 2009] with some new and classic music from the international Black Diaspora, news and commentary.



Our commentary during that week focused on the impact on public funeral service, recent media coverage and lessons that could be learned from the passing of music legend Michael Jackson (R.I.P.), the utter lack of media coverage of the arrest of a non-profit humanitarian organization members (including former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney) during a humanitarian mission to Gaza by the Israeli government during the 4th of July weekend and some other things here and there.

There was a Black Agenda Report segment during this week's show.
